Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2017

Part 2 of my 2017 holiday gift guide series is finally here, and this one is definitely the most difficult / most requested. Why is it so hard to shop for men?! Probably because their wish list is usually pretty simple (if it even exists), and most of them already have what they want or need. I pooled my resources for this guide. I made a list, and then I consulted with my best friend (who took note of her boyfriend’s opinions), and then I talked to my friend Rahul, who you might remember from his episode of Actually Adultish…

Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2017

You Are Not Destined for Weight Gain, Cognitive Decline, Acne, or Fatigue

Whenever I’m with my family or I’m back home, sleeping in the room I grew up in, distant memories randomly flood into my brain. The memories seem random, but I have a theory that it’s always for a specific reason. I’m not sure what sparked it, but last weekend while visiting home, I had a flashback image of myself at our family cabin. The memory was of me laying on the bed with a book, watching TV.
