5 Post-Pregnancy Birth Control Options

postbabybc01-645x430
After nine months of showing off your growing baby bump, you finally made it to that big ol’ birthday. Yay! Whether you got there by natural birth or C-section, you’re enjoying being a new mama. But as long as you’re not anywhere near ready to start thinking about baby spacing, it’s time to talk BC. Understanding your birth control options is the first step in making sure that your adorable angel won’t think their little sibling’s name is “Oops.” 1. An IUD: An intrauterine device? Hmm, sounds painful. Well, it’s not! An IUD is a tiny T-shaped implant that your physician inserts into your uterus through the opening of your cervix.

DIY Ikea Signe Rug Bag

ikeabag1
It’s been years since I’ve stepped foot into an Ikea. I’m sure it’s because at some point in my twenties, I finally swore off ever having to assemble another dresser with a hex key again. Never again. After my first real job, there was a lot of pride in thinking I was above build-it-yourself furniture, paper lanterns, plastic waste baskets and Swedish meatballs. Oh, how out of touch I’ve been. My recent visit to Ikea set off a hundred lightbulbs and I was probably most excited when I came across a huge bin of $3.99 woven rugs. Hello!! This is what I’ve been missing out on? DIY, DIY, DIY, DIY. The Signe rug is far too small for its intended use. It is, however, the perfect size for...

Meet the Californian Painter Replacing People with Plants

365683
Bound by a search for creativity and authenticity, AnOther has partnered with L.A.-based art collective Tappan, an initiative that was born out of a desire to reinvent the experience of buying art, to share stories about its artists. When prompted to describe her practice in three words, California-based artist Anna Valdez chooses “observational, frantic and anticipative” – and though the acts of slowly watching and rapidly creating might seem antithetical, they somehow come together in her vibrant, expansive works. Depicting bright, airy rooms, luscious greenery and careully arranged odds and ends, these canvases feel like Dutch still lifes for a new generation, in which each item is imbued with a powerful resonance. There is a meditative energy at play here, and it has everything to do with inanimate...

Bobby Rogers’ #BeingBlackandMuslim Project Explores Identity And Resistance

landscape-1493145630-brogers-bbamw4-1comp2

A quarter of Muslims in the United States are black. But despite this, Black Muslims are often left out of conversations about Islamophobia. Last week, Bobby Rogers, a visual artist based in Minneapolis, released a series of portraits inspired by the Muslim Anti-Racist Collaborative's hashtag conversation #BeingBlackandMuslim.
The photographs are a spellbinding example of how art can intersect with activism. They capture how it feels to be a Black Muslim in the U.S. We spoke to Rogers about his #BeingBlackandMuslim portraits and the inspiration behind them.
