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 Had the Best Birthday Dinnerrr!

In all honesty, I’m not trying to toot the fuck out of my own horn here, dear readers, its just happening naturally, because my friends, who happen to be the most lovely people in the world, threw me such a great birthday dinnerrrr I needed to sound like a moron from a vortex in theContinue reading “I Had the Best Birthday Dinnerrr!”

In Solidarity With My Celestial Sisters & Brothers, Your Tovascopes Have Arrived!

Hi Frans! That’s officially how I am greeting all of you, dear readers, this month—because, in actuality, you all are my friends. *wink* See what I did there? *wink* In all seriousness tho, I’ve been really considering my approach and end goal with Tovascopes and I realize, now, more than ever, I want our TovascopesContinue reading “In Solidarity With My Celestial Sisters & Brothers, Your Tovascopes Have Arrived!”

Self Discovery of A Newly Minted Hat Person

I‘ll admit, I have always been interested in hats. I loved wearing bucket hats when I was little and walking around in my Osh-Kosh overalls. I love a good fitted cap and letting my inner bro shine. I love baseball hats, and beanies, but what I love more than any other hat is a largeContinue reading “Self Discovery of A Newly Minted Hat Person”

Confessions of An Over-Sharer

I have decided to start a lifestyle site dedicated to exploring holistic living through a lens of sustainability that encompasses ecological, economic, political and cultural aspects of life, which makes me: A complete over-sharer. A seasoned opinion giver. Well, it should make me more of a conscious human being. So then why did I decideContinue reading “Confessions of An Over-Sharer”

The Thought Process of Realizing You Haven’t Kept Your Goals in Weeks

Honestly, I thought about this as I was binging The Real Housewives of Atlanta for the seventieth time in the past two days, or shall I say, since we received internet in our new apartment. On July 7th, at exactly 11:03 am, I watched and completed a full yoga session in accompaniment with Alo Yoga.Continue reading “The Thought Process of Realizing You Haven’t Kept Your Goals in Weeks”

My First Day in Austin

Lately, I’ve been really trying to become more territorial over my Friday/Saturday Shabbat situation because most of the time my weekends are jam-packed with so many activities, chores, and things that are left over from the week. So when the landlord of our new apartment in Austin told us our move-in date was Friday theContinue reading “My First Day in Austin”

Jennifer Coolidge’s Instagram Has Me Peeing My Pants Laughing

I probably would have never come across Jennifer Coolidge’s Instagram in any sort of organic fashion, had it not been for Ariana Grande doing an impersonation of her on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I shudder at the thought because since I have begun following Jennifer Coolidge, I have gained an almost saint-like level ofContinue reading “Jennifer Coolidge’s Instagram Has Me Peeing My Pants Laughing”

Love Handles, S1 E11: Just Checkin’ In

This week’s episode of Love Handles is sort all over the place. It’s the first time in a long time that I decided to stick my head into le sound booth without a clear idea of what I would say once I was in there. This has happened, maybe once before, but once I sat downContinue reading “Love Handles, S1 E11: Just Checkin’ In”

Love Handles, S1 E8: The Freedom In Saying ‘No’

I can’t believe that I have actually kept up with releasing a podcast every week for the past month or so! It’s crazy because I have very real moments of not wanting to do it, or feeling like I am speaking into the void of existence that is radio. Every time I feel this reluctanceContinue reading “Love Handles, S1 E8: The Freedom In Saying ‘No’”

Love Handles, S1 E7: The Rebel Without A Cause

This week’s episode of Love Handles is pretty weird: I recorded it on my recently purchased microphone with a slight hangover from simply not drinking enough water the day before, after procrastinating for like, a week to finally make it, and yet, it is an episode about productivity and accomplishments. I know that sounds rather paradoxical,Continue reading “Love Handles, S1 E7: The Rebel Without A Cause”

How To Fix Negative Wordplay

The irony of setting intentions to speak more positively is that it is usually doomed from the start. Last week on my podcast Love Handles, I started to talk about the power of your words and the importance of affirmation, and despite my best intention, the moment I came in contact with another human beingContinue reading “How To Fix Negative Wordplay”

I Just Read That Mercury Is Going Into Retrograde on Thursday

With St. Patricks day happening over the weekend, I can honestly say that Monday started off with a hesitant slow crawl from my bed to my office desk. I was unproductive and unresponsive to almost everyone, trying to avoid conversation and catch sleep whenever possible. When Tuesday began I felt something shift in the atmosphere. IContinue reading “I Just Read That Mercury Is Going Into Retrograde on Thursday”
