I cleaned the corner of my room for a picture for Instagram today, haven't done this in months. Only when I have a special guest like a guy friend. I am tired of subconsciously thinking people think I am self-conscious about my body or I live in a rat hole for not taking full body pics. Even though this corner is a rate hole in itself. I never really come over here unless I water my plants or fidget for unmatched socks. My wooden dresser stained with red nail polish is usually stacked to the ceiling with unopened books and cereal bowls with dried up almond milk surfacing the bottom. I do not like the dirty mirror look in pictures, I get it some people can pull it off with a vintage look. But to me, it just looks like dried up spit bit balls on the glass. I grabbed some Windex and wiped down the glass for a more cleaner look.
Birthday cards and unopened love letters lined the surface of my mirror. Not necessarily the classiest but adds more taste and serves a purpose. Luckily enough my hair was good for the photo, a big ole three-day twist out that needed Apple Cider Vinegar wash. I inched towards my mirror and noticed my lipstick was still intact with a slightly lighter tent after eating my slutty vegan burger. Wow, I haven't studied myself like this in a long time, I kept flipping my camera back to front. My skin has cleared up from my PMSing and I am due for a new phone case, the eyes are fading away. I started digging my fingers into my silk floral robe, I did not want to reveal too much to my Instagram audience. Though I've always wanted to be one of those carefree girls who never gave a fuck and takes pictures with her breast and ass hanging out. I think every girl has but not today, I will stick with my smize that Tyra Banks taught me.

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.
As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.
Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.
Keep these drinks in mind next time you're visiting your local farmer's market — you might want to grab some extra mint and limes.
With Summer 2020 in full swing comes the addition of many fresh fruits and vegetables to brighten up your dinner plate, but also your glass! Farmers markets are my personal favorite place to look for produce that is in season to make fun mocktails with.
We created a list of things to do since social distancing may create a dent in our typical, planned traditions.
With the Fourth of July on Saturday, the usual tradition of popping fireworks, grilling out, and being surrounded by family has been modified due to the pandemic. Whether you're a loner or surrounded by family, there will most likely be some changes to your celebrations.
For weeks on social media, people across the country have been complaining that they have been subjected to fireworks going off at all times of the night into the early morning. This has sparked concern and questions about why this is happening and how are people even obtaining the fireworks.
Whether you need to get through the current pandemic or want to spice up your Fourth of July celebrations, these mac and cheese recipes will do just that.
My favorite food is mac and cheese, and it always has been. All it requires is noodles and cheese — it's so simple to make. Although it's my favorite, it can also get kind of mundane because it's such a simple recipe. This, of course, has led to many people all over the world experimenting with the American staple.
With our lives currently being turned upside down due to the pandemic, a lot of people are seeking comfort. These are scary times, and in order to make it day-to-day, we need to have our favorite foods as a standby. These recipes can also be used during your celebration of the Fourth of July.
Because some purchases are just necessary.
Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.
There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.
I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now
Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.
- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.
- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.
- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.
- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.
- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.
I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.
One woman said she cried because it changed her life.
Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
If you read primarily LGBTQ fiction, then this list might help to expand your TBR list.
Frequent readers of LGBTQ fiction might feel like they're reading the same book over and over again, with few exceptions.
Most of these books were on my TBR list for months and I didn't realize they were about gay women until I was reading them, hopefully, this list of books can interest you in expanding your reading material and seeking out different stories.
