Breast of Friends: The Pain of Bras and Bra Shopping

bra shopping, bras, brassieres, undergarments

I recently went bra shopping and was reminded of what a pain bras, and specifically bra shopping, can be. Ya feel me?! I know talking about bras and boobs can be a little taboo, but it’s something we women deal with on a daily basis, so I feel no shame dedicating a whole blog post to them. Also, I took artsy photos of my brassieres (ugh, what a weird word) intermingled with my fancy card collection, so hopefully the cards distract from anything that would otherwise be “taboo”. With that said, if you’re looking for an excuse to rant about bras, or are just looking for a laugh today, here are 15 reasons why bras are the worst.

My Valentine’s Day Plans

Last year for my Valentine’s Day blog post (which was published on the actual holiday), I wrote a very cheesy love letter to you, my follower.

But this year, I decided I wanted to take a different approach and just have FUN!

Staying healthy in college is tough – very tough. You’re constantly surrounded by delicious temptations – pizza, ice cream, candy, oh my! – and you’re stuck with sub-par cafeteria food, which usually means turning to unhealthy snacks to satisfy your grumbling belly. Unlike high school, where a lot of us had some sort of scheduled after-school physical activity, college leaves you solely responsible to make time to exercise between your busy classes and stacks of extremely dry books to read. It takes a lot of self-discipline to get to the gym. Sure, maybe you lucked out and have a kitchen this year, so cooking your own meals is ideal. But realistically, do you have time to cook every night? Or the motivation? What about the money? ‘Cause healthy food ain’t cheap. I could go on, but can you see the dilemma of being healthy in college? Can you relate? Continue reading “Staying Healthy in College: My Tips and Tricks”
