Stitch Fix Review - November 2017

Stitch Fix Review - November 2017
Since I had some credits to get a new Stitch Fix and I’ve been scrambling to find a dress for my brother’s upcoming wedding in 2 weeks,  I figured I’d try getting another one. For those of you who don’t know, Stitch Fix is like Netflix for clothes (pre-streaming). You fill out a style profile, including your... Read more »

Invisible Eyelashes & Eyebrow Insecurities

Invisible Eyelashes & Eyebrow Insecurities
I’ve been thinking a lot about makeup recently. I used to be the biggest minimalist there ever was, in the most progressive way: “This is how God made me. Why would I try to change that!?” It somehow was similar to when I was 12, the age my mom finally allowed me to get my... Read more »

Stitch Fix Review (August 2016)

Stitch Fix Review (August 2016)
When it comes to Stitch Fix, I just can’t seem to help myself. At this point, I need to stop as I no longer work in an office with a dress code (people wear shorts! And T-shirts! And sometimes, even bike shorts!), and I realized I have more than enough clothes. Yet never quite seem... Read more »

On Being Different, Part 2

On Being Different, Part 2
I’m lucky to have been born a redhead with an unmanageable mop of curls. Because of the red hair, I’m used to standing out, being different. Because of the frizz, I’m used to life not being polished. Have to be resourceful and work for what I want in life (defined curls). Over the past few... Read more »

Stitch Fix Review for Redheads (Spring Edition)
Well, I tried to go cold turkey, but I can’t fight my need for a fix. I promised myself when I started doing Stitch Fix, that I would limit it to once a season, so four times a year. As it went on, I promised I myself I would only purchase pieces I was sent... Read more »

Should redheads go dairy-free?

Should redheads go dairy-free?
Let me be the first one to tell you that I HATE fad diets. I hated Atkins, I hate Paleo, I hate vegan diets (when they’re for non-ethical reasons), I hate the grapefruit diet, the juice cleanse. I hate it all. My mom likes to call me and tell me about some new diet she’s... Read more »

Beyonce Super Bowl Controversy

Beyonce Super Bowl Controversy
Do you ever stick your foot in your mouth? I did, on Super Bowl Sunday. You know how most girls respond to compliments by degrading themselves? Like when someone says they look great, and they respond that they don’t, but if only they had a thigh gap, then the compliment would actually be valid. Yeah,... Read more »

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
