Friday 5ever

Hello ravishing radishes! This past Monday marks the 20th anniversary of The Sorcerer’s Stone coming out and what better way to celebrate than by taking this very scientific sorting hat quiz.

She made a commitment a few months ago to read books written only by people who aren’t white men for a whole year, in order to consciously seek out the underrepresented voices of literature. Now Emma has a blog, Reading Diversely- a year of not…

Your Friday Round Up

It’s Almost Summer! This song is about to become your summer body positivity anthem. “Mom jeans all day why you mad tho?” I’m thinking about making myself a cookbook of my favorite summer recipes- DIY here if you want to make one too.   Health and Beauty Now that Rihanna has one, are you considering a nipple piercing?
