To celebrate my blog’s makeover (which is still a work in progress, by the way!) I thought it was time for a bit of controversy here on HandbagMafia. I’m going to make a few confessions. It might cause a few waves; I may lose a reader or two… But what the hell, right? What kind of writer would I be if I didn’t speak out on the big stuff?

So here goes. My list of dissent. My litany of non-conformity. Do with it what you will.

Controversial Statement #1

I read that Sydney will be getting a bacon festival and I was UNDERWHELMED. Why? Because I’m just not that fussed on bacon. I mean, it’s ok…but meh. Too salty.


Chinese officials are now blaming bacon for pollution!

Controversial Statement #2

No child of mine has ever, or will ever, wear an amber teething necklace. I think they are pretty but I have zero faith in any therapeutic claims.

Controversial Statement #3

The only time I’ve ever bought coconut oil was in my teens- to slather on my skin before lying in the sun. No plans to change that, quite happy with other oils for cooking.

Controversial Statement #4

I hate kale. It’s freaking gross. Yes, I tried kale chips and NO. Eugghhh.

I read that cauliflower is set to be the new kale, so I’m wondering how much cheese sauce I will need to join in that craze.

Controversial Statement #5

I don’t have a gym membership. I did, once. I went a few times then just paid money and didn’t go. I have no desire to join a gym. I don’t want personal training. Ever. Interest level is zero. I also have no interest in detailed gym stories. If you go and you like it, I’m happy for you. But I don’t have any interest in how many reps you did or how much you lift. Not even sorry.


 Controversial Statement #6

Ryan Gosling. I don’t get it.
