Restaurant Review: Loaded Pierogi

The minute I saw the name ‘Loaded Pierogi‘, I thought: ” Yey! They spelled pierogi the right way! Gotta check this place out!”.  And so I headed over with my lovely friend for a pierogi lunch.  We both have Polish in us and we both know what good pierogi taste like.  We decided to see if this place would satisfy our taste buds!

‘Thin Privilege’

Cora Harrington, a Lingere Blogger, took to Twitter to explain her idea on what ‘thin privilege’ means to her.  Her tweet has gone viral and has gotten many people talking.  What exactly is this idea of thin privilege?  In Harrington’s view, thin privilege is how you are perceived by society and treated accordingly.  The very basic idea here is:  if you’re thin, you don’t get looked down upon when eating pizza or ice cream in public; you don’t get looks on the airplane, and you can easily find clothing at any store of your choice.

Women Supporting Women!

I am thinking of all the women who have supported me in my life.  All the women who allowed me to be vulnerable, who allowed me to cry and held me in their arms.  All the women who listened.  All the women who, despite their own life turmoils, have been there for me.  I am thinking of all the women who gave me a kick in the behind when I needed it.  All the women who told me ‘be strong, you can do this’.  All the women who have been loving and caring and yet so STRONG.

Book Review: ‘Fermentation Revolution’ by Sébastien Bureau and David Côté
