Recipe: Mocha Hemp Pudding Pie by TwicebakedinWA

Recipe: Mocha Hemp Pudding Pie by TwicebakedinWA

I got a lot of requests on social media for this recipe after I posted this one simple picture. Happily, I wrote the recipe down.  Imagine chocolate, coffee, and hemp delivered as a fluffy pudding that slides just right on the tongue. A delicious way to get more antioxidants, amino acids, and essential fatty acids for dessert, breakfast, or […]

POEM: Eating Words

POEM: Eating Words

i scooped the earth up in my hands, the whole planet, cold and sticky, fire at her core to help her keep herself together. i felt chocolatey soil sift around my fingers, made from her clay and spit stardust like saliva because we are made the same. i reversed routine and bent the sky so […]

Book Review: ‘Oryx and Crake’ by Margaret Atwood and the GMO Nightmare

Book Review: ‘Oryx and Crake’ by Margaret Atwood and the GMO Nightmare

If you have strong feelings about genetically-modified organisms, the creeping spread of corporate power and private security firms, or man-made climate change, Oryx and Crake and its two sequels may very well be the ideal dystopian sci-fi books for you to check out.

Review: Acquarella Water-Based Nail Polish in Wicked

Review: Acquarella Water-Based Nail Polish in Wicked

I don’t often paint my nails, partially because I tend to make a massive mess of my cuticles and partially because I hate the smell of nail polish and nail polish remover. So when I heard about Acquarella, a water-based nail polish with a custom, no-stink remover, I was intrigued. I also liked that Acquarella […]

The Underlying Feminist Symbolism in ‘Ex Machina’

The Underlying Feminist Symbolism in ‘Ex Machina’

A most glorious Tuesday, with a highly anticipated film, half-price tickets, an assortment of munchies, and wonderful company – all while stoned out of my mind. I pass through the doors into the darkness of the theatre, not knowing quite what to expect yet looking forward to it all the same, by virtue of the […]

Product Reviews: Five Beauty Essentials

Product Reviews: Five Beauty Essentials

I’m a beauty-product junkie with three major concerns: coarse, curly, color-treated hair; sensitive combination skin (seriously, nose, I’m 44; stop breaking out); and an aversion to perfume.  Although I prefer unscented products – Almay fragrance-free gel deodorant for life! — a few of the scented ones are so good I buy them over and over. […]

REVIEW: PAX II

REVIEW: PAX II

The PAX II is a product whose design was given a lot of care. The product itself is sleek and ergonomic. Most handheld vaporizers either feel bulky or light and flimsy, this one sits comfortably in your hand with just a little weight to it. The biggest visual difference from the PAX I is the […]

How to Pack a Tiny Suitcase

How to Pack a Tiny Suitcase

After my brief trip to Denver for the Ladybud Magazine Relaunch, I was asked to write a “how-to” on traveling lightly for short business trips. The only luggage I brought along was my rolling carry on and a small bag for my wallet and electronics. I did not sacrifice any style and I was comfortable […]
