Queen Vs New Product Line Is A Game Changer For Feminine Wellness Betches

Sponsored by Queen V Last summer (guys, remember summer?!), I wrote about the launch of feminine wellness brand Queen V. In case you missed it, Queen V is a female-run company that shares my frustration with mainstream feminine hygiene products: they’re gross, expensive, loaded with chemicals, and—in my personal experience—work about half the time. (If you’re internally rolling your eyes right now, you are either a man or have never had a vaginal issue. I will not be accepting comments from either group at this time.) Queen V’s products one-up existing products at every turn: they’re affordable, formulated with your comfort and health in mind, and f*cking cute. (Sue me, I love a good bathroom shelf aesthetic.)  I’m not just …

What A Personal Trainer Eats In A Day Betches

Whenever I tell someone I’m in the fitness industry, I always get a lot of questions about what a personal trainer eats. Because of my background, I think people assume I’m always very uptight about food, which I am, to an extent. I think that it’s very important for everyone to put quality nutrition into their bodies. Like, if you drove a Lambo would you fill it up with anything less than premium gas? No. However, I am SO FAR from being super restrictive about food, and I take the same approach to my clients. Because I used to have such a shaky history with food in my middle and high school years, I am very aware of the effect …

What Is Labiaplasty And Why Are Women Doing It? Betches

I’ve got a fine relationship with my vagina. To be honest, before this article I had not given it much thought. It’s there, it does what it needs to do, and I carry on with my life. But for some women, how their vulva looks and feels causes them major stress. That’s where labiaplasty comes in. For some people, when they hear about a labiaplasty, they think (logically) “okay, yeah, plastic surgery for your labia.” For others, when they hear it, their first reaction is “WTF.” But whether you’ve heard about a labiaplasty before or not, I’m sure you have some questions and probably some misconceptions that I plan to debunk. But let’s get one thing straight: labiaplasty is NOT …

Apartment Decor Under $50 That Looks Chic, Not Cheap Betches

1. Himalayan Salt Lamp Himalayan Salt Lamp, $34 If you live somewhere hip like LA, you probs have the luxury of picking up fresh flowers at your weekly farmers market to bring life to your apartment.

The Best Natural Beauty Products For A Healthy Glow-Up Betches

Slightly switching gears: I am not a health nut because I love Domino’s thin-crust pizza too much (bless up) , but the recent cancer diagnosis of a family member forced me to reevaluate the toxic sh*t I put on and in my body. It’s been real f*ckboys, but I gotta say goodbye. Ladies, do yourselves a favor and look at the ingredients chemicals in your foundation, perfume and lip gloss. Is it just me, or is every ingredient a 15-syllable word that ends in “oxide?” I mean, I feel like Penelope Cruz in that Pantene commercial trying to pronounce some of the ish on the label of my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I know what you’re thinking: Why don’t you just …

Does CBD Work? We Tried A Bunch Of CBD Products Betches

Okay, so I battle chronic Lyme disease and anxiety on the daily. I also train Brazilian jiu-jitsu 3-4 days/week. What I’m trying to say here is that I’m basically an ideal candidate for CBD because I’m always broken and hurting. Beauty/Skin Care whoAs someone with eczema and super sensitive skin, trying any form of beauty or skin care product on my face or body (aside from my tried-and-true usuals) has always scared me. I tried and on Sunday night after I showered and found out for myself.   I pumped a glob onto my finger and wiped what I thought was a respectable amount of serum underneath and around my eyes. I had some extra serum left over, so I …

‘Vanderpump Rules’ Recap: The One Where The Gang Goes To Therapy Betches

Lisa rolls up to SUR (or Pump?) slightly hungover, just like me when I’m hungover: insisting I only had two drinks when video evidence suggests very much the contrary. In other words, me on Sunday night and again Monday morning! No personal questions, please. The only thing that ruins this scene is knowing that Lisa pronounces Ibiza “eye-bee-tha”. Ugh. She probably studied abroad there one time in 1960. Kristen: Whether Lisa likes it or not, I’m part of the SUR family. So it’s easier if she just invites me. So Carter and Kristen are fighting. Oh I guess their relationship isn’t perfect and she’s not completely sane and well-adjusted. COLOR ME SHOCKED. Brittany and Jax go to their engagement party …

Former BuzzFeed Employee Spilled The Tea On Getting Fired

In case your creative writing major friends haven’t been talking about it nonstop, a lot of sh*t has been going down in the online publishing world. On Friday, January 25, BuzzFeed laid off “seven members of the national desk, the six-person national security team and the two journalists covering health. All but two members of the entertainment team were laid off and all but one on the L.B.G.T. desk. There were no cuts to the technology, politics or investigations teams,” according to the New York Times. One legendary ex-BuzzFeed employee, Jason Sweeten, wreaked havoc on his previous employer in a way we all wish we shadily could. Earlier this morning (at 10:36am to be exactly), She probably got fired.
