10 Secrets Girls Won't Admit But Know Are 100% True

10 Secrets Girls Won't Admit But Know Are 100% True

That one pocket in your purse...you know what it's for.

Girls have so many little tricks and secrets to get them through the day. There are things all girls just KNOW. So, if you are a boy reading this, you may end up learning some dark magic. Beware. Girls, if you don't know these things...where have you been and can I have directions to that rock you must have been living under? All jokes aside, here are 10 things all girls know to be true:

1. That one pocket in your purse...

..we know what it's for. We all put our pads and tampons in there. It's that pocket men just don't go in. I think subconsciously, they know not to venture into that black hole of feminine products. The pocket is like the gates of hell: "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here." Dante Alighieri

2. That one makeup bag in your backpack that's for the same thing.

This is the bag you grab and take inconspicuously to the bathroom. We know what's in it, even if the boys will never know it's like the pocket above.

3. We all are lesbians for each other.

That guy that won't leave you alone, so your friend comes over and pretends to be your girlfriend.

4. Target is your happy place.

You never just get one thing and that five minute trip turns into a two hour shopping spree. #bankrupt

5. Ulta is for your broken heart.

Ulta is the place to go so you feel good about yourself again. It isn't about makeup or the hundreds of other beauty products...it's about being somewhere where you treat yourself and are there for you, and only you.

6. Not wanting to shave your legs in the winter...

...or any time of year. This is me once a year. I hate shaving more than you can even imagine and all girls know the debate on whether or not to shave. You WANT to wear the dress, but your legs look like this...the struggle is real, man.

7. The struggle of getting the perfect messy bun.

You try one thousand times and the one time you get it perfect, there is that ONE PIECE OF HAIR AND GODDAMN YOU, WHY!? Why can't I do it like the other girls? They make it look so easy.

8. Getting the best selfie possible in good lighting, while it lasts...

...attempt number 1,006,956 and it's still not perfect. You'll finally settle on the first one you took because you guess it passes the standards. You also leave all the others in your camera roll for a rainy day.

9. That diet that never happens...

"I'm so dieting this weekend so I can fit into my new jeans." "I'm going to do crunches so my butt looks fabulous, like Kim Kardashian's." "I'm so full I can't eat one more---is that cake?" We've all been there. We male promises to ourselves but honestly, food just makes us happy, and we won't apologize for that.

10. Leggings ARE pants...

...I don't wear the same leggings everyday. If you disagree, you can come fight me. I just have 10,000 of the same exact black leggings. I mean, you can never have enough leggings.

These are just some of the things all girls KNOW to be true.

Cute Clothes That Don't Fit

Bodies aren't made for the clothes, clothes are made for the bodies.

Being a girl is so much fun when it comes to cute clothes and getting dressed up or looking nice. Girls love compliments and feeling good about themselves, but sometimes finding the right outfit can be difficult.

There are so many stores like Francesca's or Dress Up that go from size extra small to large, and even then the clothes might fit too tight or snug. I know certain stores don't order larger sizes for in-store purchases, but customers can go online and buy clothes that may fit them.

It is really difficult for girls who aren't very small, or what the idea of "skinny" is, to find cute clothes that don't make them feel enormous or uncomfortable. Women come in so many different shapes and sizes and the clothes that are available to us are almost desgined to fit one figure or one type of person.

Personally, I hate going shopping and trying on clothes because I know that the clothes I like won't fit me so I don't even want to try.

Of course, there are stores out there that will fit the larger woman, but most of the time the clothes aren't as cute as the extra small shirt in the adorable boutique around the corner or makes a girl feel as beautiful as their smaller friends that can easily buy something fashionable in these certain stores.

Bodies aren't made for the clothes, the clothes are made for the bodies and I wish stores and designers cared more about people who don't fit into the stereotypical small, medium or large.

There are so many beautiful outfits out there and it makes me so angry that I am turned away from certain stores because clothes simply run up to a large. It's unfair to larger women and women who have larger breasts or anything else that may set them apart from the smaller sized women seen shopping in the boutiques.

It's difficult going shopping with friends who are smaller than me. They can easily walk into a store and find something that will look great on them and fit them and it might take me four or five stores before I can even fit a shirt over my left boob, even if it is a large.

Finding the right outfit causes me so much stress and I just wish there were more stores like Old Navy, Gap or Target that made young women like me feel confident in my own skin.

5 Things I've Learned From Dying My Hair

The things I've learned form box-dying my hair

Growing up, change was something I never looked forward to. However, college has changed quite a few things. I'm learning to be independent, and with my newfound freedom, comes great responsibility. Yet, it gives you many opportunities to try new things, and for me, that meant dying my hair from naturally blonde to dark brown out of a box in my dorm room. Although I don't necessarily recommend this process, change can always help you find some stronger independence in yourself. Here's a few things I've learned about hair from my dye experiences:

1. Box dye is horrible for your hair

Regardless of what the box says, it lies. Though bleach is even worse, hair dye found in drugstores are never healthy for your hair. If you are worried about the health of your hair post-dye, talk to your hairdresser or a professional beforehand to assure the best option for you.

2. You're not gonna recognize yourself

Unless you are going for minimal change, a big change in your appearance is going to be mentally shocking. The larger the difference you are making, the less you may recognize yourself in the mirror. Don’t worry though, the shock is only temporary, and I promise the look will grow onto you.

3. Dye your roots!!

Ladies, this one’s for you. Dye. Your. Roots! No one wants to see the color of your natural hair contrasting with your brand new hair color! Not only will it look better, but you will feel better with those freshened up roots.

4. You'll probably miss your old hair

Like everyone says, you probably will miss your pre-dye hair color. Although there may be some longing for the healthy pre-color strands that were on your head, you have something new to get used to!

5. But... Hair is temporary!

Don’t worry about the hair dye, hair is temporary! If you really hate it, there are wigs, and people specialized to help you create the perfect color. So don’t worry, you will end up in the right place!
