Vagina Cupcakes, Anyone?

Sandy McMillin’s Bikini Bod Not Welcome At Walmart

Oregon resident Sandy MicMillan recently took a quick trip to her local Walmart to pick up chips, sour cream, and coffee creamer (this detail is not important, I just thought I would call your attention to her shopping list).

6 Financial Decisions From My 20s That I Regret

I'm not even going to sugarcoat it: I'm basically the poster child for the white girl from the suburbs whose dad just took care of all the bills growing up and never taught me anything about finances.

Confession: I Don’t Wash New Underwear Before I Wear It

The other day there was a little incident where I was informed at, oh, 4 p.m. that I'd been walking around all day wearing hot pink boy shorts underneath a see-through dress. Ruh roh. I hustled over to the nearest Victoria's Secret to deal with this situation. There I found a bunch of cute cotto…
