The SPANX Problem: How to Keep Your Little Secret a Secret?

The SPANX Problem: How to Keep Your Little Secret a Secret?

I have to admit to you all here, just as I did to my BFF -- I don't think I could ever show a guy my SPANX. I'm sorry. That's just not a secret I want made public.

Guess Which Celebs Are Wearing Spanx

Nobody is perfect. That is one of the most trite sayings out there, but it's really true! Even beautiful, thin celebrities have their faults.

Closing the Gender Gap

Closing the Gender Gap

The last decade brought about a wave of liberating changes for women. We stopped wearing pants. We (successfully?) raised children on our own (by choice, or by force). We kissed girls..and Russel Brand (and we liked it. A LOT.). We are so amazing, in fact, that men are starting to get a little jealous.

Tis Better To Give Than To Receive…Especially These Gifts

Tis Better To Give Than To Receive…Especially These Gifts

Oh, how I love Christmas morning. There's nothing quite like waking up to the smell of slow-roasting, honey-baked ham and my dad's own personal off-key rendition of "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire." But, let's be honest, as much as I love food/my family/blah blah blah, I (like most of you reading this) like getting presents the most.

The Great Dilemma: Spanx or No Spanx?

When It Comes To The Booty Call, Always Be Prepared

When It Comes To The Booty Call, Always Be Prepared

It’s the Scout Motto: Always be prepared. But I don’t think my Girl Scout troop leader was referring to booty calls when she ingrained that piece of advice into my head. On a college campus you never know who you're going to meet... and then want to take back to your room... to get to know each other better.
