Hi! I’m Manda Rae

Welcome to my space for sharing what I learn in my life in hopes of inspiring good things in yours.

I am a “retired actor” and writer living in Los Angeles, California, on a mission to love life after trauma.

I believe in everyday healing through major self-care and self-love.

I also believe that folded chips are the best in the bag.

I write for other sensitive, sassy souls like me, but hope my words resonate with any and all who are guided to these pages.

I hope you enjoy your visit here. Be sure to share if you are moved to do so, and thanks for stopping by!

Love & hugs,


What’s not to love this month? Apple brings us more heartwarming episodes of Season 3 of TRYING, plus a few other streams that look promising. HBO airs Season 2 of INDUSTRY and premieres the highly anticipated HOUSE OF THE DRAGON (let’s hope they don’t f*ck this one up.) FX on Hulu gifts us a second season of RESERVATION DOGS plus new limited series, THE PATIENT. Hulu brings us PREY and MIKE. Netflix offers THE SANDMAN, Season 3 of NEVER HAVE I EVER, plus a whole slew of somewhat-promising summer flicks. And Disney graces us with LIGHTYEAR, I AM GROOT, SHE-HULK, and ANDOR.

See more of what’s coming to streaming this month.
