The Future of Fashun is Hand Painted Cellular Device Covers

Since the moment I received my first iPhone, I was enamored by the high gloss appeal of the machine—the simplicity of the design, the intrinsic beauty of modernity that it was—and immediately was dissatisfied with it, when my father slapped a thick black case on it. All of it’s beauty was taken away by thisContinue reading “The Future of Fashun is Hand Painted Cellular Device Covers”

Love At First Sight

That is the feeling I felt when I saw these chairs, love. I love the clean lines, the minimalism, the simplicity of the structure, and the effortless way they go with everything. HOWEVER, and that’s a big however, they are sort of in bad shape. The frame of the chairs are made from metal, andContinue reading “Love At First Sight”

A Not Entirely Classic Hummus

It might seem like a tad overdone and slightly unnecessary to start putting another food blog out into the universe, but I’d like to think of this as my own personal journey with food, and if you’d like to join along, then so be it. Does that make it any less over done? No. WillContinue reading “A Not Entirely Classic Hummus”

Block Out Some of the Noise

Social media is one of those things that can be really great, and at the same time, the worst invention ever made. It can inundate your brain with too many images, too many opinions, and too many false narratives of people telling you that, “You’re not good enough, you should be this way, or youContinue reading “Block Out Some of the Noise”

Tackling Your Inner Critic

The other day, I was listening to a podcast on the topic of silencing your inner critic and stopping self sabotage by Barry Michels and Dr. Phil Shultz. The two developed a pretty simple concept defining our inner self as Part X, who’s primary modus operandi is self sabotage, stopping us from taking risks, criticism,Continue reading “Tackling Your Inner Critic”

I’m Trying to Get Through Winter, But I Desperately Need Help.

There are exactly 37 days, 4 hours, and 20 minutes until spring. Obviously, by the time this is posted on Tova & Wild that time will be cut down by a few days, hours, and/or minutes. Needless to say, I hate winter. I don’t like the cold, I don’t like the rain, I don’t likeContinue reading “I’m Trying to Get Through Winter, But I Desperately Need Help.”

I Know, I Know, I Know…

I’ve been M.I.A. for a while now. You see, the thing is, sometimes you need a little break from the routine of writing and putting yourself out there in such a vulnerable and complex way. Sometimes, the holidays are so constipated with drama and tension that you need more time to detox. Sometimes, the newContinue reading “I Know, I Know, I Know…”

I’ve Been Going Through It.

For what seems like the entire month of November, my headspace has been preoccupied with so many emotions, feelings, and the like, that I have found myself in a whirlwind of self-doubt and insecurity. I have wanted nothing more than to curl in a hole and wait until spring abounds to which I will emerge,Continue reading “I’ve Been Going Through It.”
