"Do you consider yourself a feminist?"
“I don’t really think about things as guys versus girls. I never have. I was raised by parents who brought me up to think if you work as hard as guys, you can go far in life.”

- Taylor Swift 2012

"As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means."

I want the sangria.

You too can have Bella’s Memory-Erasing Sangria* (TM) at home! To two bottles of cab sauv (or any red wine available for $4.50 a bottle at Target) add

  • 1 pint strawberries, chopped
  • 2 fronds of rosemary, clipped from the healthiest-looking branches of your rosemary plant
  • 6 shots, give or take half the bottle, of the nearest fruity liquor (in my case, strawberry-lemonade vodka)

If there’s any space left in your pitcher, fill with juice. If you don’t have juice (I did not have juice), add lemonade.

Chill and enjoy!

I don’t know why I’m laughing so hard but this post is amazing and SO ARE YOU

I AM hilarious, especially after I’ve had two glasses of watered-down sangria, thank you for recognizing this important fact.

The sangria I made last Friday is so strong that I’ve literally had to water it down like it’s 3000 BC up in here, which sort of explains why I can’t remember last Friday.
