Obviously, things are very strange right now, and everyone is looking for things to binge. That’s where I come in! There are a ton of great shows to binge on Netflix, many of which have flown under the radar. So here are six Netflix hidden gems, from every genre.  ScoobyRead More →


I’m learning more ways to care for my self, that don’t always require spending money.
Self Care is defined as “the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health.” and “the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.” None of that says you have to buy a lot to participate! Read More →

I may hate football and Super Bowl Sunday may be one of the worst days in the world to me, but I can appreciate one thing about it. The commercials. I can also appreciate the fact that someone out there understands that not everyone wants to watch the game, andRead More →

It’s been a while, but good ships never really disappear from the collective consciousness. And it’s February, the month of love, so we thought we’d go back and examine some of our favorite ships, and why we shipped them. Bring some more love into the world, so to speak. SoRead More →

We’re just over a week into the new year, and I’m already crushing the heck out of my reading goal (pats self heartily on the back). While I’ve finished 4 books so far, my “read” pile from last year is pretty hefty. So I’ve compiled a list of 10 booksRead More →

I love New Amsterdam. It’s one of my favorite shows. Don’t tell my sister, because she’s way into Grey’s Anatomy and doesn’t feel like any other medical drama compares.

We watch a lot of television and we definitely see a lot of different actresses come across the screen. Which ones are our favorites? The list could be a book. Every actress brings something different to the screen. It’s true, that our favorite actresses of the decade may be influencedRead More →

Television sure has changed over the years. It’s funny because what had started at the beginning of this decade is being remade, rebooted, and such. However, we get it – because there are so many shows that are just so good that we can’t let go of them. But whenRead More →

Fandom. It’s defined as, “the fans of a particular person, team, fictional series, etc. regarded collectively as a community or subculture.” For us it is a way of life. Over the past decade, we’ve been lucky to be a part of many fandoms. But which one was the most influential?Read More →

For us, a lot of our fandom love starts with the books that we read. Everything from Twilight (which in all fairness, is an obvious choice for this list – but we challenged people to think outside of it) to anything Game of Thrones, Outlander to basically anything YA –Read More →

Ships. We live and die by them. Ships are amazing and teach us so much about relationships. They teach us about love and life. Our ships of the decade, are mostly – well all around television. We love so many different ships – but when I make everyone narrow itRead More →

In an effort to build a space for queer people like myself, every Tuesday I’ll be posting opinion pieces, listicals, reviews, and more focused on the LGBT community (and occasionally about the Latinx/WOC community since I am Latinx.) Welcome to Queerly Not Straight! Enjoy and leave a comment below ifRead More →

With A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood coming out this week, I have been thinking a lot about Mister Rogers. I know that as a grown adult that kind of sounds ridiculous. Why? Because it was so long ago. But one thing I have learned getting older, is that theRead More →

Self-care. It means something different to everyone. But can always be changing. For me – self care changes with the day. It changes with the time. It is ever evolving. And I am all about it. Self-care is important for anyones mental health and so getting people gifts for self-careRead More →
