And The Prize Goes To … The Best Pledge For Healthy Living

Last week, we asked you to pledge to lead a healthier life and help those in need, in exchange for a plush Nautica “Sleep In For The Cure” bathrobe. And the winner of the prize is bdubs629:

“In 2008 I got diagnosed with Celiac Disease where I have to eat gluten-free. Having this diagnosis take place while I was in high school was difficult, but the extra 20 pounds I gained for my senior year was horrible. Because I was finally absorbing nutrients from my food the weight was gained in about a month and a half. My ex broke up with me because I wasn’t “pretty anymore” and his friends claimed I was too fat for their group.

Now 2 years later I am in college and a totally different person. I pledge to finally start mentally healing my emotional scars! I want to exercise, not to lose weight, but get that connection with my body again! I want to stomp out the negative feelings about my body that other people have imposed on me years ago. I will be sexy! I will be healthy!”

Today’s Lady News: Peace Activists Plan “Wear A Hijab” Day On 9/11

  • As a counter protest to the Koran-burning in Florida, peace activist Charell Charlie of California is planning a “Wear A Hijab” event at The Grove in Los Angeles. She is inviting men and women of all faiths to don a hijab veil (for women) or kufi head covering (for men) in silent solidarity with Muslims in America on September 11th. “We are non-Muslims who plan to wear the hijab or kufi on 9/11 as a gesture to American Muslims that they are full citizens of this country and deserve the same rights as the rest of us. We intend to prove to Muslims around the world that people of peace outnumber those who hate,” she said. “Let’s stand up and stand out to demonstrate that not all Americans are bigots.” [LAist.com]
  • Yesterday a federal court in California ruled that the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, which forces gays and lesbians in the military to stay in the closet or risk being discharged, is unconstitutional. [CNN]

Would You Rather … Spend Fashion’s Night Out In NYC Or Paris?

Fashion’s Night Out is upon us! And now for a very trying question: Would you rather celebrate the event in New York City or Paris? Interestingly, FNO already happened in Paris, and unfortunately it was no big whoop. We were there and trust us, the NYC lineup sounds like Disneyland on crack compared to what went on in gay Paree. To be in la France, you do get the amazing benefit of being in the fashion capital of the world … but you’d probably get the “real” Fashion’s Night Out experience in New York. Which would you opt for if you got to choose? Keep reading »

Women In The Workplace Just Keep Mucking It Up

We ladies are just all butterfingers in the workplace! Thankfully, Citi has created a helpful list of things we women are doing wrong in the office. Transgressions include: “being naive,” “smiling inappropriately” and giving “limp handshakes.” So that’s why we get paid so much less than men! It’s not the institutionalized sexism or anything! Thanks for clearing that up, guys. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
