20 Signs You Love Iced Coffee More Than Your Last Relationship

20 Signs You Love Iced Coffee More Than Your Last Relationship

Just sippin' on my iced coffee and pretending everything's okay.

Iced coffee is really all I need in life. Okay, that's a lie, but if it's not on the top of your list of "one true loves," then you're definitely lying. All it takes is a medium iced caramel mocha with almond milk to get me going. Let all the coffee lovers rejoice!

1. You're willing to wake up early to see them.

It may take setting five alarms with the word, "COFFEEEEEE" in all caps and a dozen coffee emoji's, but it's worth it.

2. You know the dangers of drinking it hot, juggling it with fifty other things, and having it spill and burn a hole in your heart.

We've all been there. Let's save ourselves the trouble and not sue McDonald's or Starbucks.

3. You're probably sitting in the drive thru right now instead of by the coffeemaker in your significant other's kitchen.

I'd prefer to sit in my car. Alone. I've given the saying, "Good things come to those who wait," a whole new meaning.

4. You remember the exact dates Dunkin's happy hour starts and ends but you couldn't get your ex to remember your birthday.

So is happy hour, but I'm sure he couldn't even remember that.

5. You've posted a million iced coffee pictures on your Instagram feed to make up for the ex-boyfriend photos you deleted.

And that is how we flirt, ladies and gentlemen.

6. ...And Snapchats, too.

I mean, until your iced coffee betrays you, that is...

7. You're willing to pay $5 just so you can get your quick fix.

Too bad it takes an eternity to actually get your coffee, but I'd rather not complain.

8. You don't have to worry about where they are all the time because you can usually find them on every street corner.

No more countless texts, all you need is the notification that your mobile order is ready.

9. You've coined the term, "The colder the better," in reference to your cold heart.

More ice, please.

10. You're not afraid to try exotic things anymore, bring on the almond and coconut milk!

It was about time we ditched the same-old-same-old. Apparently, they're better for you, anyway.

11. You get even more excited about getting a free drink on your Starbucks Gold Member anniversary because at least the damn app remembered it was your freaking anniversary.

I guess you could say that coffee isn't as forgetful.

12. You drink twice as much iced coffee than you probably should to make up for all those coffee dates where they were "too busy" to meet you.

Yeah, I drink coffee like it's water, no big deal.

13. You're closer to your barista than you ever were to them.

I'm forever thankful for cute guys that work at coffee shops.

14. Your cold brew smells better than they did most of the time.

Even after you bought them that expensive cologne.

15. You dream of the day your future bf will show up to your work with your iced vanilla coffee.

Please watch this. That is all.

16. You believe in taking everything in full doses (aka larger coffees), whereas your ex claimed he could only take you in small doses.

Am I talking too much? Oh sorry, it's the coffee. At least I think it is, but it probably has no effect on me anymore. I should stop talking.

17. You get more attention from your Instagram followers who ask what your iced coffee order is every time you post it on your story.

I dunno if I can remember all of that.

18. You don't settle for mediocre sugar-filled nonsense.

Black coffee ain't that bad, especially when it matches your soul.

19. You like your men like you like your coffee: smooth and strong.

Sorry, just had to include this one.

20. That's right, none of that five extra pumps of caramel bullshit that screams, "Come over tonight." Bring on the damn espresso.

If you order something with that much extra sugar, then we all know what you really want...and it ain't coffee, if you know what I mean.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.


To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

5 Things You Need To Know About Thinx Underwear

Those of you with a uterus, listen up.


I first heard about Thinx underwear two years ago while on a subway in Washington DC. I thought the whole idea of leakproof underwear sounded a bit too much like diapers and brushed the product aside. Fast forward two years, my mom states that she is going to buy a pair to try and offered to get me one too. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I did!

If you're not familiar with Thinx allow me to explain. It's a company that prides themselves on creating underwear specifically designed for individuals to wear during their periods. Looking at the reviews, everyone seemed to love them, and after trying them out for myself, I must say I like them quite a lot. Here are a few important things to know about Thinx underwear.

1. It doesn’t always replace your pads/tampons

Thinx may not replace tampons, but it can help cut back the amount you use.


I learned this the hard way that if you have a heavy flow, you can't wear Thinx on its own. If you have a light flow, you could get away with only wearing these, but for us poor souls with heavy flows, I recommend making these your new period underwear. You never have to worry about any leaks, even at night!

2. They don't stain

Behold! No bloodstains!


If you leak onto this underwear, fear not. Merely rinse them in the sink and then throw them in the wash like normal and boom! Clean underwear. No more ugly stained underwear to keep in the corner of your drawer.

3. There’s a bunch of cute designs/colors

There's something for everyone!


One thing I must say about Thinx is that they have a wide variety of options. There are several different cuts, and almost all of them come in different colors options as well. They seem to be introducing new colors all the time, so keep an eye out for one you like.

4. They are super comfy!

These feel just like normal underwear.


When I got my pair, I was worried that this underwear would feel like wearing a diaper or something else uncomfortable, but that was not the case at all! This underwear when you're wearing it feels like normal underwear, and while you're washing it, it feels like a swimsuit.

5. They donate to a good cause

Everyone should have access to period products. Period.


For every pair of underwear that you buy, the company donates a pair to someone in need. It seems like most are sent to developing countries where women do not have access to proper menstruation hygiene products. In addition to this, Thinx was designed to help cut back the number of disposable pads entering landfills. They designed this underwear to be a more sustainable alternative for people with periods!
