Website / social media


Her name is Sally. She is a writer, teacher, performer, photographer, traveler, eater of many things and wearer of many hats (not just tinfoil hats with weather vanes on top). She is also a big huge scaredy cat. But that hasn’t really stopped her from doing a lot of things she is scared of. She used to live in Asia, where she would regularly conquer her fears of spiders, open water and people spitting in public.

5 tips to trim down for Trump
Hello out there to my fellow plus-sized lady-peeps! I know last week you were probably pretty sad about this whole election thing. But it's time to wipe away those tears because we've got work to do! Don't worry! I'm not talking about dismantling the patriarchy! That sounds super hard! I mean, if us curvies can't even get our chocolate cravings under control how can we be expected to tamp down thousands of years of sexism? LOLZ, AMIRITE?
