Since the moment I received my first iPhone, I was enamored by the high gloss appeal of the machine—the simplicity of the design, the intrinsic beauty of modernity that it was—and immediately was dissatisfied with it, when my father slapped a thick black case on it. All of it’s beauty was taken away by thisContinue reading “The Future of Fashun is Hand Painted Cellular Device Covers”
That is the feeling I felt when I saw these chairs, love. I love the clean lines, the minimalism, the simplicity of the structure, and the effortless way they go with everything. HOWEVER, and that’s a big however, they are sort of in bad shape. The frame of the chairs are made from metal, andContinue reading “Love At First Sight”
Wow, it’s been a minute since I’ve sat down and written anything, or even looked at my blog. A few months ago, it seemed like out of nowhere, Mercury left retrograde and all of a sudden I emerged forth out of my den, looking to write—only to be bogged down by a ton of workContinue reading “Showing Up for Yourself…Thoughts?”
It might seem like a tad overdone and slightly unnecessary to start putting another food blog out into the universe, but I’d like to think of this as my own personal journey with food, and if you’d like to join along, then so be it. Does that make it any less over done? No. WillContinue reading “A Not Entirely Classic Hummus”
Hey PPL! It’s been a while since I’ve taken the time to write. I could come up with a million excuses, but all I can say is that every once in a while you need to take a break and come up for air. I think when I started this blog I threw myself intoContinue reading “Hello.”
Social media is one of those things that can be really great, and at the same time, the worst invention ever made. It can inundate your brain with too many images, too many opinions, and too many false narratives of people telling you that, “You’re not good enough, you should be this way, or youContinue reading “Block Out Some of the Noise”
Sometimes you need a little dash of color before the weekend, in order to set the tone.
The other day, I was listening to a podcast on the topic of silencing your inner critic and stopping self sabotage by Barry Michels and Dr. Phil Shultz. The two developed a pretty simple concept defining our inner self as Part X, who’s primary modus operandi is self sabotage, stopping us from taking risks, criticism,Continue reading “Tackling Your Inner Critic”
I can rant for a solid thousand words on why I hate winter—and, while throughout my blog there is similar rhetoric, and most likely has already surpassed one thousand words—I have decided to skip past the frustrated foreplay and nose dive right into the solution.
There are exactly 37 days, 4 hours, and 20 minutes until spring. Obviously, by the time this is posted on Tova & Wild that time will be cut down by a few days, hours, and/or minutes. Needless to say, I hate winter. I don’t like the cold, I don’t like the rain, I don’t likeContinue reading “I’m Trying to Get Through Winter, But I Desperately Need Help.”
I’ve been M.I.A. for a while now. You see, the thing is, sometimes you need a little break from the routine of writing and putting yourself out there in such a vulnerable and complex way. Sometimes, the holidays are so constipated with drama and tension that you need more time to detox. Sometimes, the newContinue reading “I Know, I Know, I Know…”
For what seems like the entire month of November, my headspace has been preoccupied with so many emotions, feelings, and the like, that I have found myself in a whirlwind of self-doubt and insecurity. I have wanted nothing more than to curl in a hole and wait until spring abounds to which I will emerge,Continue reading “I’ve Been Going Through It.”
I haven’t written anything in such a long time that I feel like if I even tried to begin writing, like I am now, it will end up becoming a large pile of crap that stares me in the face for years to come. Every damn day I will look back at this piece ofContinue reading “I’m Not Sure Why I Feel Compelled To Share When I’m Not Ready”
