Rest in peace, Sonja.
Finally! A body challenge we can all get behind.
Thank god I wasn't there to behold that glorious spectacle, because I probably would have cried and melted into a puddle of heart-sparkly goo.
We happened to stumble upon Boobstagram. And yes, it's real. I wasn't all that surprised when I found out given the kinds of things we have access to these days. But I was extremely surprised when I found out that Boobstagram isn't quite what you think.
Just because October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, is coming to and end doesn't mean that breast cancer awareness is. I think awareness months are fantastic, but people often forget the cause after the month is over.
For all of us twenty-something college girls with pre-gravitized boobies, it’s time to wake up and smell the sterilized tools: breast cancer is common in women under the age of 30. Before you all go kill-the-messenger crazy on me, think about it. Breast cancer is not just a menopausal-mommy disease.
I was your typical college sophomore. I was active on campus, had a great group of friends, and kept myself busy with schoolwork. I was enjoying my time at The College of New Jersey, and felt truly blessed with an amazing life. Then in April 2009, everything changed completely. In the midst of studying for final exams and celebrating the end of the school year, I was going back and forth between TCNJ and New York City for doctor visits.
Gwyneth Paltrow sang country, Lindsay Lohan and her father have been hanging out, John Mayer has moved on to married women…what hasn’t happened this week!?

You already know that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. What you might not know is that retailers around the country are releasing special Pink Ribbon merchandise to commemorate the occasion. Buy any of these awesome products, and a portion of the price gets donated to breast cancer research.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but this is an issue that should be brought to light at all times. In an effort to spread the word, designers have been coming out with some simple and flattering t-shirt designs that can be worn way past the month of October to remind all of us of this worthy cause.
As a kid, there were a lot of things I was looking forward to having once I became a “grown-up” -- a boyfriend, my period (I don't know why I was looking forward to that, but I was), and getting my very own set of beautiful breasts. Not only would their arrival mean I was turning into a woman, but I felt like they would make clothes look that much better.
