    Self-Defense Hacks Every Woman Should Know

    There are many experiences women face daily that men will never understand: walking through the parking lot and worrying about the stranger following you, feeling uneasy as you get out of the car and have to walk a block alone, noticing someone eyeing you up in the grocery store and waiting for them to leave first so they don't know what car you drive.

    How to Be Classy & Elegant

    How to Be Classy & Elegant

    Many people have different ideas on what it means to be classy. I believe class is a combination of two things: The sophisticated nature of elegance and the traditional sense of etiquette. Coming across as classy has little, in fact nothing, to do with wealth, status and superiority but everything to do with behaviour, attitude and confidence. It’s all about self-awareness, and being confident in the way that you conduct yourself and present yourself to others. Being classy is an easy thing to practice once the two areas (etiquette & elegance) are broken down into pointers that we may already be conscious of, but may not be used to practicing day by day.

    My life as a girl is rough and it will continue to stay that way. Girls are full of hormones that make us hate everything and anything about ourselves, other girls, and life. Am I right?

    To All the Women That Are yet to Find Their One, True Love—I Have a Message for You

    Life can be quite hectic as it is without the added responsibility of a romantic relationship. You've got your elderly neighbour that seems to have suddenly gotten real quick in the last couple of days, you're in a job that requires to give much of your time and dedication to and then you've got your family whom you have a love (and sometimes even, hate) relationship with, which more times than not, can seem like a full-time job itself.
