Tuffy Luv Hates Jerks

I'm going back to college in the fall and I wanted to re-invent myself, still stay the same but have a total new outlook on life and a new attitude. Back as a freshman guys would make fun of me and torture me, and it was horrible. I wanted to go back in the fall as a new person, and have those guys who made fun of me not know what hit them.

Tricks and Tips to Feeling Confident in Your Swimsuit

It's time. That moment when you are standing on the beach, or a yacht in Miami if you're annoying and you have to find a sexy way to take off your maxi dress (which sounds impossible might I add) and debut your healthy and freckle-less skin. To the rays of sunshine. And all of the men ogling at your fun bags and all the girls admiring your creativity to mix-match your Target swimsuit.

Sexy Time: Declare War on Insecurities

Sex can breed a lot of things - familiarity, contempt, intimacy, orgasms, babies, hysterically awful stories to tell your friends... but the association with sex I want to address this week is insecurity. That crippling insecurity that a fellow CC writer detailed struck a nerve with me, and I'm sure many of you as well.

This Post Grad Life: Don't Lose That Cocky Feelin'

Alright post-grads, future post-grads, and people who think they are post-grads but are really just thirty-years-old and clinging on to their blissful youth. For some reason as a post-grad myself, I've found it easiest to write about things that depress me. I guess I just like an excuse to indulge in brownie sundaes nightly. But the truth is, the post-grad life isn't depressing!

CC Beauty Live: A Deeper Look

The past few weeks, I've been thinking about how all of you watching these videos don't get to see my flaws because 1) the camera is very deceiving, and 2) I always have makeup on. I am so flattered by your comments, but I feel that you're getting a one-sided look at me.

Ask A Dude: I’m Too Shy To Flirt

Dear dude, Without sounding conceited, I'm smart, funny, pretty and I've got an hourglass figure. My problem is that I've got a whole lot of personality and apparently I'm intimidating to guys. Whenever I go to parties, I get hit on but it never goes anywhere because although I act really outgoing, I'm secretly shy when it comes to guys.

Senior Files: Creating the Perfect Work Wardrobe

Graduation is fast approaching and soon we college girls will have to swap our flip flops and sweats for pumps and two-piece suits. Unless you have an amazing job where you can work in your PJs, you’re going to need to update your wardrobe with some real people clothes (that don’t permanently smell of pizza and beer, no matter how many times you wash them).

Tuffy Luv Sez: Find Some Common Ground

Dear Tuffy Luv, Please help me. My name is Rob and I really wish I had a girlfriend. I try asking girls at parties and get turned down left and right. I think I might just be incredibly ugly looking or something.

What I Learned From My Summer Job

Since I don't plan on teaching swimming or working with kids in the future, I didn't anticipate learning anything super important through this job. I figured I'd get a tan, make some money, and get really pruney fingers now and then. But while I was teaching these little kids how to stay afloat in a large body of water, they were teaching me a much bigger lesson.

Single. And Focusing On Me

Give me a boy, any boy, and I’ll find something I love about him. This is why even I wondered if I was slightly insane when I decided to completely abstain from boys this summer.

Single. And Looking Good, If I Do Say So Myself.

I was sitting on the bike at the gym yesterday, sweating out my stress to some Drake, when a cute boy sits on the bike next to me. I was so excited and in luuuurve, but instead of focusing on engaging in witty banter and knocking the socks off this kid, I was wondering if my eye makeup from the day had made its way down my face yet, and if sweat could ever be remotely flattering.

Go Ahead, Be A Negative Nancy!

Lately, it seems like the whole freakin' world has been on a self-help kick. In recent years, the $11 billion dollar industry has flourished. It's provided us with "miracle" books like The Secret and an array of self-proclaimed internet self-help gurus (or trust fund babies with pink hair and Daddy's cash?) like Gala Darling.

Optimism: Good or Very, Very Bad?

We are constantly being told to have confidence, to be optimistic, and that if we believe in ourselves, we can do it! Well, these eye rolling confidence booster clichés are apparently unnecessary, as a recent study proves that 95% of the world’s population is naturally optimistic.
