5 Things You Need To Know About Lady Face Shaving

  Because I did it. I shaved my whole entire face. Well, most of it. And I know you have questions. Like, “Why would you shave your face, Amanda?” And, “How did you shave your face, Amanda?” AND, “JUST WHAT EXACTLY WERE YOU THINKING, AMANDA?!” But, hear me out… I have struggled recently with acne, particularly along my jaw line. And, if I’m honest, I have noted that my facial hair has gotten a little more, um, engaging with age. Not are-you-doing-Movember-this-year engaging, just slightly-thicker-and-more-resistant-to-going-unnoticed-in-places engaging. It’s not that I have what I would consider an actual mustache, per se,…

You're Probably Not Thinking About Buying A Bodysuit, But Just In Case...

  Honestly, I’ve struggled to make sense of why they exist. Like, why on earth would grown up ladies want to hunch themselves up into all kinds of impossible positions to snap the coochie-clasp of a bodysuit on themselves? Like onsies aren’t hard enough to put on babies. Like fumbling around down there just to pee is normal. Like a regular shirt doesn’t just make more sense. But, I figured before I judge too hard, I should try one. Newsflash: a bodysuit was as unflattering and ridiculous as you can imagine. But, it was also stretchy. And soft. And soooo comfortable! I have…

10 things NOT to say to people with curly hair!

  I was born bald. Like my own baby bottom. I didn’t grow hair enough for bows until around age three. Until then, my mom would tape little bows on my hair for photos. And constantly tell people I was a GIRL. Not a boy with pierced ears. I’ve more than made up for it though. Today my hair is this big, in your face, curly thing that causes people to say, think, and do things to it — and to me — that the average haired person has probably never encountered. It’s cool.
