24 Things Women Over 30 Should Wear

This morning, as I was perusing my Facebook timeline, I happened upon an article that a lovely friend shared. It was entitled "24 Things Women Should Stop Wearing After Age 30", and it triggered Maximum Eye-Rollingย from everyone who took the time out to read it. Written by Kallie Provencher for RantChic.com, this "article" (I use… Continue reading 24 Things Women Over 30 Should Wear

Stop The Hate: A Discussion on Girl-Hate in Popular Music

So there I was. In the bathroom, up-close-and-personal with the mirror and a mascara wand (mascara face and all), jammin' out to some dance tunes on Spotify and putting on my face for the day. Just minding my own business, when it hit me like a ton of bricks: the amount of woman-against-woman hate in… Continue reading Stop The Hate: A Discussion on Girl-Hate in Popular Music

Redefining Sexy: Not Just For The Boys

Scarlet Johansson. Beyonce. Megan Fox. What do these ladies have in common?Besides all sharing celebrity status and raking in boatloads of cash each year, I think it can be universally agreed upon that each of these three ladies bear the traits of the conventionally sexy. They are long legged and svelte, with pouty lips and… Continue reading Redefining Sexy: Not Just For The Boys

“The Second Mango” (Interview With The Author)

Today, I'm taking a break from blogging boobs, bras, and body image to discuss another topic that I love: books. And something I love more than just books? Queer, feminist, fantasy books. So, color me surprised when the lovely Shira Glassman dropped a line in my inbox, informing me that she had written just that.… Continue reading “The Second Mango” (Interview With The Author)

Diversity In Lingerie

It's been quite the whirlwind few weeks in the life of this blogger! What, with a week-long "workcation", a flurry of unpacking, and a much-loathed trip to the dentist's office, I've been a very busy bee. These facts can all be attributed to the uncanny silence resonating from my corner of the interwebs. But now… Continue reading Diversity In Lingerie

The “New” Normal

You should have seen her face. You should have seen her face when I leaned in for that kiss. Panic. Fear. Involuntarily, her whole body shifted as far away from mine as she could get within the confines of the tiny red car that she drives. She didn't say anything at first, but her actions… Continue reading The “New” Normal

An Open Letter

Unless you've just now crawled out from the cave you've been hiding in for a few weeks, you've probably heard that recently, the United States Supreme Court has ruled both Section 3 of the Defense Of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8 as unconstitutional. As a member of the LGBT community, I am rejoicing in… Continue reading An Open Letter

I Want To See You Be Brave

Sara Bareilles just released a new song and video from her upcoming album, entitled "Brave". It encourages the listener to be brave, speak up for what they believe in, and to not let fear control their lives. (I think this is awesome. Ten thousand brownie points for Sara Bareilles!) As I was driving to work,… Continue reading I Want To See You Be Brave

“You Would Be So Pretty If…”

We've all heard it. "You would be so pretty if..." "...you just smiled." "...you lost some weight." "...you changed your hair." "...you changed your clothes." When I was 18, I had a dentist tell me that I would be "so pretty" and "attract so many boys" if only I just got braces to take care… Continue reading “You Would Be So Pretty If…”
