Issues
I can’t listen to music without a wellspring of tears exploding from my sockets. I can’t watch the movies or television that I love. I try to read and the letters dance around the page like they are on fire.
Beauty
Tea tree oil is an antiseptic and an anti-inflammatory, making it super-effective in fighting against toxins that cause breakouts.
Entertainment
When I say romance, I mean erotic romance. The dirty stuff.
Beauty
What you should feel upon walking into most nail salons is more of a crippling terror, particularly if a manicure is a regular part of your beauty routine.
Family Drama
I struggle with the unspoken rules of social media parent behaviour. People post pictures of their morning muesli on Instagram, but I'm supposed to be tight-lipped about two babies coming out of my body?
It Happened To Me
His awkwardness spoke louder than words. It was obvious these two had been intimate.
Clothes
I wear denim shirts all year long, but the awkward-weather month of September is when I find myself wearing them most.
Issues
If we have to shame men into non-violence, the battle is already lost.
Relationships
She was a new-ish friend, but the kind I wanted to keep.

Beauty
As silly as it might sound, I really think writing about beauty can help women.
DIY
Fresh vegetables (especially organic ones) can be expensive, but rather than skimping, I say use every last part of them -- even the parts you usually throw away.

Sex, Sex, Sex ... and Love
Ninth grade. Kilts. Homeliness. Long hair. Center parts. T-Zone acne. I was in love with Mel Gibson, I was in love with Sting. I was a strange girl.
Beauty
I’ve battled dry scalp for years and only recently figured out a way to nix the flakes for good.

Stop being the curmudgeon who just claps along begrudgingly! Go forth and confidently claim your tone-deaf spotlight!

This is the “good” abortion narrative. And I’m happy Davis shared it, because even that was a risk. But this kind of story is not the most common when it comes to terminating a pregnancy.
Relationships
I crossed the threshold into a freezing cold operating room with nothing more on than a hospital gown and socks. There was no turning back. I felt slightly nervous, surrounded by strangers who were about to conduct a procedure on me.

It Happened To Me
I don't know when the abuse started because it's not a subject that I ask her about very often, but I'm pretty sure he hit her while she was pregnant. What I do know is that I was just six months old the first time he hit me.
Beauty
I have many fond memories of testing out pastel-colored cream eyeshadow and ungodly amounts of body spray.

We are not contributing to rape culture by doing whatever we can to protect ourselves.

Family Drama
I was unemployed and attending college. My husband was working full-time at just a few cents above minimum wage. We could barely afford ourselves.

Healthy
Only recently have I started to see exercise as something other than punishment for not having a “perfect” body.

This might just change your life -- if you want it to.
