Trying Out “The Cup”

I’ve been meaning to try out the Diva Cup (I will henceforth refer to it as simply “the cup” because I can’t bring myself to say “diva” in reference to myself at all) for quite some time, but every month I would mean to, and then my period would come and go and suddenly I…

Live Well Challenge: Iron Chef/Iron Stomach

I had rather high expectations for last week’s (Ok, fine, it was two weeks ago) message, which encouraged us to incorporate more iron into our diets. I wanted to try to add a little more iron into my meals every day and then see if I felt different. Of course, I didn’t, and instead decided…

Make that 27, Maddy

I see this gem every time I walk home:           Yep, it’s a sexy Chesire Cat. With a cardboard smile. And the leg warmers are sparkly.         And don’t be fooled by the demure-looking Alice next to her, because next to Alice is the sexy Queen of Hearts.

Live Well Challenge: Veggin’ Out

Sorry this post is a day late, but, you know, we all have things to do. Anyway, even though the post is late, I did do the challenge on time. This week’s tip was to try out a local vegetarian restaurant. Another of our peer eds, Emily, wrote out a great list of places to…

Live Well Challenge: “Breakfast”

I didn’t really consider how it would look when I really took on last week’s challenge and then sort of sidestepped around this one. Admittedly, this week’s Monday Message involved like 100 tips about eating, none of which I follow in my normal life. Nicole Anziani, Barnard’s awesome new(ish) nutritionist, basically wrote her own blog…

Live Well Challenge: Plate Pride

So, the first installment of my pledge to adhere to the weekly Healthy Monday Messages encouraged me to “bring some color into [my] meals and snacks with fruits and veggies”. To start out with a bang, I decided to do a full rainbow dinner, and get all six colors on my plate. Also, since it’s…

Live Well Challenge

I am writing this to embark on a challenge. Every week Well Woman sends out a Healthy Monday Message with tips and information on how to inject your week with a little bit of wellness. I love getting them, and I love reading them (especially when one of my suggestions makes it on there), but,…

Enthusiasm is Sexy (how about that on a lollipop?)

As the summer draws to a close, and Bwog begins to update us all on NSOP, and makes all those core jokes I don’t get, this post made me think about that consent workshop we all had to go to during orientation. And then I started thinking about all the gray areas of consent, and…

Feminism Doesn’t Go On Hiatus During the summer

Here are two websites to peruse since I’m sure you miss reading: The Seventeen Magazine Project — this girl decides to follow Seventeen Magazine’s advice for a whole month, which includes her prom and graduation from high school (not unlike that guy who followed the bible for a year). She’s damn insightful for a high…
