Guess what bitch, you probably do! My whole life I’d always heard that having parasites was a thing. Whenever our family would come back from Mexico, someone would always tell us to make sure we took care of any parasites we may have picked up from the food or water we consumed. This would be […]
I was a sad, stagnant bitch when I first fell into my plant obsession. Recently dumped with a new apartment, a dwindling bank account, and too much time on my hands, a quick google search told me that I needed some serious Feng Shui money vibes in my life. If energy and placement were the […]
I Carried a Watermelon Pt 2
We finally pulled over off the highway by the beach. “This is it. This is where Yemoja wants us. The tide is still too high though. We will sit and wait for it to get lower.” We sat in silence and watched the waves crash back and forth rhythmically against the rocks. After 20 minutes, […]
Tampons? Thank u, next.
For starters, I had been contemplating getting a diva cup for over 6 months. I read the blogs and testimonials and watched the youtube videos. I even reached out to my close girlfriends and surprisingly found out that not many of them had tried it yet or they didn’t show much interest in it at […]

Fair warning, this post may make me sound like a basic bitch, but please read on with an open mind. I own a crystal bible. I keep a dish of stones and crystals on my bedside table, yes, sitting next to my pink Himalayan salt lamp which I turn on every night. I also have […]

Other than knowing it was a beautiful and breathtaking (literally!) trek to one of the highest peaks in the […]
Nicolasa La Vegetariana?
First and foremost, I love all animals. But 24 hours after the below photo was taken, I had alpaca for lunch. It was the first and quite possibly the last time I will try it. I’ve never felt bad for eating animal meat before, but this time was different. Eating alpaca was not something I […]
Berrinchuda in Big Bear
One thing I’ve learned after spending a week in Big Bear with three kids all under the age of 6 is that I don’t know shit about what it takes to be a mother. I thought that because I was raised by a single working mother of four, I understood and knew the struggles of […]
My abuelito was a world traveler. Before diabetes. Before the doctors amputated his leg. Before his heart attack. Mi abuelito was a photographer, a journalist, a businessman, un viajero. Every few years my abue would take his nietos to Mexico. My turn finally came the fall of ’96, the year before he passed away. I was […]
