Brazilian Waxing = Medieval Torture? [Friday Faves]

Brazilian Waxing = Medieval Torture? [Friday Faves]

My roomie once said, in a conversation that I very much regret missing, “You know, I could see why you would trim your bush if it got a little out of hand…but I don’t know why the hell you would cut the whole thing down. It just makes your lawn look funny!” And, no, we were not talking about horticulture.

Friday Faves: Men Could Never Walk In Our Stilettos

Friday Faves: Men Could Never Walk In Our Stilettos

Most of us have engaged in the verbal debate at some point. Most likely over a game of beer pong, when a guy makes that common assumption that boys are simply tougher than girls. We then launch into defense mode, listing off reasons why women are a hundred times tougher than men. It always ends in the same statement: “well men don’t have to go through labor!”

The Pubic Problem

The Pubic Problem

A few weeks ago, CollegeCandy posted a piece on How to Have the Best Vaginia in Town, a post that featured a number of ridiculous, but real vajazzling techniques (which by the way was not supposed to be taken as serious suggestions). But even with so many crazy options to choose from, the issue that really took over the comments was the idea of waxing at all.

Friday Faves: The Things We’ll Do For A Man….

When it comes to wooing the opposite sex, men have it easy. As far as I know, they approach you and whip out the pick-up line. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. Women on the other hand, play a whole different game. Sometimes it seems as if our entire existence is based on impressing a guy. And it's exhausting.

Friday Faves: What Your Bikini Wax Says About You

For most of us, bikini waxing is a summertime requirement, along the lines of flip flops and SPF 15. You can't go to the beach with a fur skirt, right? But did you know that how you landscape says a lot about who you are? It's true - guys can read your vajay like a book.

Save Money and Look Great By Doing It All Yourself

Save Money and Look Great By Doing It All Yourself

As college students on a budget, we sometimes have to sacrifice our favorite beauty regimens in favor of our weekly trips to Dollar Beer night (or maybe we are actually being responsible and shelling out a few hundred dollars on a semester's worth of textbooks). But just because we want to save some money doesn't mean we have to look like dingy hags with 12 cats and a knitting room.

Sex is Out, Celibacy is In

Much like boat shoes, chambray and shortening words, celibacy is now officially trendy. You heard me: celibacy. Trendy. Totes. Lady Gaga and Courtney Love are doing it. Or, well, not doing it, I suppose. But it's not only them. According to a new article in the New York Post, bands of women are going celibate, claiming it makes them happy.

Tested and Approved: The Ultimate Shaving Kit

Tested and Approved: The Ultimate Shaving Kit

While we get all this stuff dropped off daily, it is truly rare that I find something new and awesome and totally worth writing about. Because I'm not gonna write about just anything the mailman drops on my desk while I'm out for my mid-morning brownie run. But I recently received a package that intrigued me and has since changed my life. And I not exaggerating.

The Doctor Is In: Bikini Line Madness

The Doctor Is In: Bikini Line Madness

Q: Whenever I shave my bikini line or get waxed I get MASSIVE bumps down there. We’re talking HUGE. They hurt a ton and are super gross looking. Oh, and sometimes they pop (like a zit) and I get nauseous just looking at them. I can’t NOT wax/shave, but I also can’t handle these things.

Makeup 101: Say Goodbye To Ingrown Hairs!

Makeup 101: Say Goodbye To Ingrown Hairs!

So I realize it is mid-August, and that means that it's taken me pretty much all summer to get my bikini shaving to a level of perfection. As someone with sensitive skin, I am often prone to razor burn and the dreaded ingrown hairs. If you have ever had an ingrown hair you know that they are painful, unattractive, and pretty tricky to get rid of.

He Said/She Said: You Oughta Know

He Said/She Said: You Oughta Know

The point is, if I've learned anything from all my he said/she said-ing, it's that communication is key when it comes to the relationship between men and women. They can't read our minds and we can't read theirs. So I started thinking about all the things I've wanted to say to boys over the years - everything they need to know when it comes to us ladies - and I asked my guy to do the same.

I’m Torn: Waxing

I’m Torn: Waxing

Let me just tell you: I hate hair. I hate finding it in clumps in the shower, I hate it in boys' armpits (and really hate it in girls') and I hate it anywhere on my body except for my head. Even still, I've yet to go to a professional to yank off my unwanted foliage.
