Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay.

The Weekend IT List


1. Indulge. It's time to master the caramel apple. This quintessential fall treat can be very expensive at the store. If you've yet to master the technique, check out this step by step tutorial on theyummylife.com.


2. Have Fun. Iron Man 3 is out on DVD. Rated PG-13, this latest installment of the Tony Stark blockbusters is perfect for a family movie night.


3. Shop. Get stocked up on fall fashion. This weekend Old Navy is having a sale on jeans for the whole family, adult's from $19 and kid's from $12. The sale ends 9/27, so get shopping! Don't forget you can shop the sales online.

4. Stay Fit. Think Yourself Happy. Thoughts lead to emotions, not the other way around. When I learned how to better control my thoughts, I felt like it was a get-out-of-jail free card. I can choose to be happy no matter which type of situation I'm going through. For me focused thinking began with meditation - not clearing the mind, but focusing the mind on something during meditation. Here is a great article for beginners - Meditation for Beginners: 20 Practical Tips for Quieting the Mind.

5. Get Pretty. This time of year I'm obsessed with anything pumpkin, including beauty treatments. Pumpkin is a great source of Vitamin A and other nutrients which are great for the skin and hair. Check out these 5 DIY Pumpkin Beauty Treatments you can make with canned pumpkin puree.
