Howdy, I’m Emily Pearl Goodstein.  I’m a sweatpants enthusiast, reproductive justice activist, photographer, online organizer, and rabble-rouser living in Washington, DC.

I leverage my status as a native Washingtonian (and expert Googler) to recommend products, restaurants, and recipes (in addition to other things I find mildly diverting) on my blog, Wild and Crazy Pearl. I spend too much money on iTunes and my favorite possession is the cobalt blue KitchenAid mixer I used part of my Bat Mitzvah money to buy (it is still going strong). I also enjoy drinking sweet tea, photographing babies and baby bellies, and taking naps.

I’ve perfected the art of oversharing on the Internet. Keep up with my adventures inside the Beltway and beyond on Facebook and Twitter.  I love fan mail, too.

P.S. Everything on this blog is mine all mine, and does not represent the views of  my lovely employer.
