How My Hair Defines Me

I have another movie recommendation for you to watch on Netflix and that is Nappily Ever After. It’s your basic chick-flick where your girl slowly falls in love with her hair. It has all of the clichés of having a professional job, being wealthy, and cute love interests with a few added bonuses. However, I bring up this movie as a starting point for a conversation: … Continue reading How My Hair Defines Me

When Savvy Attempts to Waste Less

Sustainability is the new buzz-word for our time. (just in case you don’t believe, read about how our planet is going to be a hothouse , how to eat sustainably, musings from New York of a green christmas, and how the UN is involved.) With our zero-wasting, vegan recipes, and ethical fashion, it’s the new lifestyle that all of the cool kids are living; arguably for good … Continue reading When Savvy Attempts to Waste Less

How I Feel About My Life Now

Saturday afternoon. Late. Like 5ish. I roll over in bed at the dregs of my nap, gaze out my bedroom, straight into the lounge. Glowsticks in place. Non-alcoholic wine lining the fridge.

My prayers as a child rarely felt innocent or … Continue reading How to Make Sense of a Paradoxical God

My Name is Savvy and I’m a Walter Mitty

One of my favourite films of all time is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  It’s my favourite, not only because of the beautiful shots of Iceland, Ben Stiller, and an evil Adam Scott, but ironically enough, Walter’s daydreams. Walter Mitty is a daydreamer and he daydreams constantly, causing him to miss trains and other pieces of important information. The whole premise of the movie is … Continue reading My Name is Savvy and I’m a Walter Mitty

Are We Free in Our Sexual Revolution?

This blog post has been a journey of sorts of constantly looking backwards, forwards, and sideways. I wrote about #MeToo a few months ago, making a stance that ultimately, our job is to support a victim of sexual harassment/assault and to encourage these victims to not be afraid to speak up. Until that blog post, I was silent when topics of sexual harassment or assault came … Continue reading Are We Free in Our Sexual Revolution?
