BigStock reached out to us about featuring their portfolio in our entries, and we had so much fun exploring, we wanted to share some entertaining collections of images. There are some seriously talented photographers at work in stock imagery, too. There’s also a lot of gold to be mined when it comes to stock photos. Every month, we’d love to share with you some great, beautiful, or downright silly things we’ve come across on BigStock. This month’s theme: Gorgeous coats … In the States, it’s summer. I hate it. So this post is for all the lucky people in the Southern Hemisphere who are experiencing cooler temps. I swear, when I’m filthy, stinkin’ rich, I’m going to have two homes in different hemispheres.

We also discuss The Friend Zone and the inspiration behind the story. Special highlight: meeting Tom Hiddleston, and vagazzling your own vageode. Content and trigger alert: During the course of the interview, we discuss menstruation and body parts, and the conversation frames the book from a cis-centric perspective given that the characters are cis-gendered. But we recognize and want to acknowledge that not all women have vaginas, have uteruses, or menstruate. Also: we discuss infertility, fibroids, hysterectomy, and the painful pressure and hyperattentive focus on fertility that many people feel. I went through infertility myself for other reasons, and some of the discussion in the conversation was painfully familiar. So if this might hurt or feel bad, skip this one, k? Take care of yourself. You’re awesome and…
