ReadyU says save the ramen and TV dinners for February 15th, and put on something nice...you're overdue for a meal that isn't served from a Styrofoam cup or cardboard box.
Also, I probably NEVER would have bought nipple gel on my own...but guess what guys? I LIKED IT A LOT. The one that came in the box was California Exotic Novelties Climax Nipple Gel, mint flavored. I would have been waaaaay too freaked out to buy some in public, but since it came to my door I figured I may as well try it, and now I'm a big fan!
After a recent chat with CC Editor Alex, we came to the conclusion that the Internet is basically the ideal man. Before you think we're crazy, hear us out! I decided to come up with a bunch of reasons why my relationship with the Internet is the best I have ever been in.

Dear friends who thought I would stop ranting about Valentine's Day once I was in a relationship, I'm sorry you were mistaken. I know I'm not the only person that rants about V-Day (coupled or otherwise). My new favorite Tumblr account, Occupy Valentine's Day, proves it.
Can I just come right out and state the obvious? It feels impossible to find a good Valentine's Day gift for guys. It's the one holiday where everyone asks, "What is this gift saying?" Enter the Valentine's Day mix CD. It's fun, virtually free and definitely my go-to gift this year. Plus, the fact that it's 100% customizable means you can totally dial up or down the level of feelings you throw at your boyfriend/FWB/hookup.
I'm totally up for reclaiming Valentine's Day and making it about sexy self-indulgence. That's definitely something our society doesn't value nearly as much as it should; and I mean, who isn't in love with feeling sexy and sensual, whether it's for a partner or for yourself?
Whether you are on the singles team or the relationship team, there are plenty of things to love about February 14. So stop dreading leaving your apartment or dorm on Tuesday if you hate seeing everyone wearing red and smiling, and if you're in a relationship, try to appreciate these OTHER parts of V-Day along with appreciating your significant other.
• A look back at Whitney Houston's life in pictures • Whitney Houston cause of death • Grammy style showdown: Taylor Swift vs Miranda Lambert • Glee honors Whitney! • Great new sex manual called Great In Bed • Calvin Klein summer heat!
Obvious statement: Don't get your significant other a card with someone else's name on it. While you would assume that some Valentine's Day gifts are obviously bad ideas, some people just don't seem to get it. My mom once got a toothbrush(!) from her ex-boyfriend for V-day in high school. If I got a gift like that, I would ask myself two questions: 1. Does he not like me? and 2. What is he implying with this gift?
Valentine's Day is in just three days and I have one question for you: do you know what you're wearing yet? You may be thinking, I don't have a significant other. Why does it matter what I wear? Regardless of whether you have a boyfriend, a hook up, a crush or if you're completely single, you should still try on V-Day.

Impress your friends and loved ones with these cheap, easy and incredible treats.
Valentine's Day - love it or loathe it, it's looming on the very-near horizon. Personally I'm not a fan, but perhaps that's just my inner bitter spinster self talking -- assuming someone took it upon themselves to shower me with gifts, I'd be perplexed, but I surely wouldn't question it. But let's not allow my sour-grapes attitude get us down! Whether you're in an exciting new fling or a tried and true relationship, we've got you covered...
• Would you buy a pair of the grossest leggings ever? • Robert Downey Jr. named his son Exton. • This guy can't handle the Bieber Fever. • Who's on your dream Dancing with the Stars cast? • Did you stalk your middle school crushes? (Admit it.) • Celebrities pets are the cutest pets.
Valentine's Day is a week away, and I'm going to confess that I'm pretty excited about it. I know that it's sort of over-hyped, but I just love that there is a whole day out of the year celebrating love! So of course I take full advantage of Valentine's Day fashion: red, heart overload, and romantic details!

So yesterday was Valentine’s Day. Not that you needed that (brutal) reminder; the aisles at CVS said it all. If you were one of the lucky few of us (not me) that were whisked away on some romantic fairytale-like evening… well, good for you. But I don't wanna hear about it.
So let's be real, we all cried a little bit when we found out Brad and Jen were splitting, and some of us are still
sticking pins in our Angelina Jolie voodoo dolls not over it. In fact, thanks to our obsession with celebrities, faux-lebrities and TV/movies, we often find ourselves more invested in Hollywood/fictional couples than we do in our own relationships.
Valentine's Day is supposed to be about expressing your love for...uh...the people you love. But what it actually is, is a commercialized way to turn love into a cheese-tastic card with the words "I wuv u" written across the top.
Happy Valentine’s Day! With three words I’ve probably caused every single reader to groan in frustration. You’re probably trying to forget this day exists, aren’t you? Trying to pretend this is just a normal Monday. Well it’s not.
I'm going to be upfront and honest with ya'll. I'm AM the type of person that hates Valentines Day singlehandedly because I am single. I'm not going to try and deny it, I'm not going to go ahead and be all "why can't single girls just love themselves on Valentines Day!?" I am going to be loud and proud about my haste during the "holiday."
Yet another holiday’s time of year has rolled around and oh, would you look at that, it’s Valentine’s Day also known as Single Awareness Day. Okay, no need to panic, deep breaths, you can do this. Put down the Milanos. (Don't worry, you can pick them back up in little bit, just keep calm and read ahead first).
The number one reason I love the statement necklace: no effort required. In your most lazy moments you can throw on jeans, a white tee and a statement necklace and it looks like you put time and effort into your ‘fit instead of hitting snooze fifteen times.
Valentine's Day is right around the corner which means you're either spending way too much time debating if your not-boyfriend-boyfriend is going to take you on a date or you've already picked out the sweatpants you're going to wear and the tub of ice cream you're going to eat. Or are you? Our galpals over at Tressugar conducted a survey about what each gender thinks about February 14th.
Today, Brittany from The College Crush is going to tell you what you shouldn't be doing come February 14th. That is if you want to maintain your sanity, dignity, friends and chances at love down the road. Which, you know, you should.
I have cried more times in the bra aisle than any human ever should. You name the store, I’ve probably been reduced to tears: H&M, Target, Victoria’s Secret (this could go on for a while). I’ve spent years trying to understand why all the beautiful bras halt at a size B.
Whether you are single or taken, it all plays out the same: in disappointment that someone else has let you down yet again. Why not get down to what Valentine's Day is really about - love - and instead of waiting for someone else to make you happy, why not do it yourself?
To be honest, I've always been a little torn about Valentine's Day. For me it's kind of like communism; while great in theory, it almost never works in the execution. Considering last year I got two Snickers bars from my now-ex (gee, I wonder why), I don't have high hopes for Valentine's Day, but I'm not a complete Cupid-hater either.
So did everyone see the Hallmark commercial plugging Valentine's Day? If you haven't seen it, you'll love this: "Valentine's Day isn't about I love you, it's about I love us." Commercials like these can make any single woman want to bang her head against a heart-shaped box of Russell Stover chocolates.
Love, schmove. When you are a couple, Valentine’s Day is one of the most exciting days of the year. When you are single, you sometimes want to throw things at those happy couples. However, the one thing we forget is that Valentine’s Day is not just about couples. At it's core, it's a holiday that is simply about love.
’m not sure if it’s the bad weather or the senioritis or my inability to focus on any one task for more than five minutes at a time, but I’ve been in quite the mood these past few days. And I’m taking my anger out on February, this too short, unproductive, cold, depressing, and generally annoying month.
