How To Make Yourself Like Running

Running is stupid. You get sweaty, your joints hurt, your body is flopping everywhere, and you’re not even sure you’re doing it right. I know. About two years ago, I, too, thought running was a crock of crap, existing solely for the Crossfit show-offs who wanted to remind me that I’m a size 8 when…

Does it Hold Your Boobs In?: My Lululemon “Wild Tank” Review

Okay, is Lululemon’s “it girl” top worth the $64? It depends. Here’s my Lululemon Wild Tank review. As you know, I love Lululemon dearly. It is very likely the one brand I am ridiculously loyal to, but I’m also very real with. It’s pricey, the styles constantly change (fall in love with a top? Too bad, hope you…

Should You Holler at that Woman on the Street?: A Quick Guide

I shared this video from Hollaback yesterday of a woman being harassed on the streets of New York for doing nothing other than existing and having ass and tits. Of course, I was quickly barraged with Facebook messages, texts and tweets about how “saying ‘hello’ and telling a woman she’s beautiful is not harassment!” So…

John Legend’s “You & I” Video is Sob-worthy

John Legend! Seriously! Too many onion ninjas in my house currently! This video is basically the essence of my blog in a much more beautiful, less sarcastic way. I want to hug these girls and then be their best friends, oh, and the song is good too? Did you also cringe for the girl getting…

The Best Strapless Bra of All Time.

Disclaimer: I was absolutely, positively NOT paid for this post. This post is 100% my own opinions. Everyone with a pair of totters knows strapless bras are the enemy.

How to Learn to Love your Cellulite

Oh, cellulite. You’re so precious. We’ve been together for a good 12 years now, and even when I ask you to leave, you just don’t! So why do I hate you so much? Why do I wish you’d detach from my body and go line your pockets with rocks and pull a Sylvia Plath? Why do…

12 One-Piece Bathing Suits That Won’t Cause a Nip Slip

Over the weekend, I visited my friend’s neighborhood pool. Being from Michigan, I’m still getting use to the idea that you can visit pools before July, let alone have one dedicated to a neighborhood. I rolled up in my one-piece (because one-pieces are hella chic and because I like chocolate chip cookies) and then quickly…

Plus-Size Bloggers Recreate Beyonce’s “Flawless”

Everyone knows I have a lady boner for Nadia Aboulhosn, and her latest collaboration with GabiFresh and Tess Munster covering BEYONCEEEEEE is basically all you need to make today amazing. A little bummed they didn’t invite me, but WHATEVER. GabiFresh, let me holler at that studded jacket. And if you like Tess’ gold dress, it’s…

Madonna got armpit hair, so I got armpit hair

Yesterday Madonna showed the world her armpit hair, fabulously captioned with “Long hair…… Don’t Care!!!!!! #artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove.” (Those hashtags are a little much for me and do kind of sound like something Avril Lavigne would print on a t-shirt sold at a mall kiosk.) And you know what? This might be my favorite thing Madonnna has ever…
