With sites like HelloGiggles, shows like Girls, and celebrities like Tina Fey, there’s no way to avoid the media out there being an authentic voice for women. It’s exciting. Women are awesome. We should never be told otherwise, and yet even here, today, there are those who don’t agree.
Happy belated women’s day! Here’s a ladies-only mix to celebrate us, because we aren’t celebrated enough.

I started knitting these yoga socks [on the left] a year ago, but didn’t finish, never quite satisfied with how they were turning out. Returning to them this winter, I ripped out the whole project and started on these leg warmers [on the right] instead. I love them, and have absolutely never been happier ripping out, tearing up, or deleting a project. Sometimes, you just have to start over.
The new year heightens the senses. Makes me feel more, think more, see more, do nearly everything more. Or more deeply that is. Here’s a super- mini-mix to reflect that.
- “Raconte-moi une histoire” by M83
- “Taste” by Animal Collective
- “Sylvia” by The Antlers
I have so many memories playing with these barrettes as a child. Sneaking into mom’s jewelry box and adorning them along with bright, red lipstick. They belonged to my great Aunt Peggy, the classiest lady I’ve known.
