What Was Your “Holy Crap, I’m An Adult” Moment?

Adulthood — what is it and what does it mean to you? For some, the transition to grown-ass woman status can seem murky and ephemeral. But for others, it’s easy to locate a turning point, a shift, a change in perspective from “girl” to “woman.”

I thought about this as I perused the chef’s knives at Williams-Sonoma one day last week: buying fancy knives to replace my crappy Ikea set seemed very smart and adult. Weirdly, it represented a shift in focus — a few years ago, I’d have probably blown that $150 on drinks and take-out or an unnecessary dress, and instead I was buying crazy expensive knives! To cook with!

But adulthood is different for everyone. When did you most feel like an adult? After the jump: some of our silly and scary adult moments. Keep reading »

Tavi, Tavi Everywhere!

And now, BlackBook has released an almost-too-precious YouTube video of Tavi running around the set. Tavi, Tavi, everywhere!

Frisky Readers Split Down The Middle On Drinking While Pregnant

Earlier this week, Ami posted about a recent article that said it’s becoming more common for women to have the occasional drink while pregnant. We polled you on what your drinking policy would be when you’re pregnant and over 4,700 of you responded. I suspect the results were shocking no matter how you voted, in that it was basically split down the middle. Over 48.5 percent of you indicated that you would drink while pregnant anywhere from only “on special occasions” (22.85 percent) to “every now and then” (24.1 percent), with 1.5 percent (74 of you!) vowing to imbibe even more regularly — though I hope you’re joking (as we were) about “passing the smokes.” Meanwhile, over 51 percent of you said you would have a zero tolerance alcohol policy while pregs. So what gives? Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I’m Plagued By UTIs

For all the ladies out there who have ever had issues with UTIs, here is my story and experience with treatment. Feel free to weigh in on what you’ve found that works for you (or doesn’t).

I’m beginning to think my vagina is a lemon.

On most fronts, it actually functions quite normally. Yet, there’s one stinging flaw—it’s particularly prone to urinary tract infections. Here’s the deal: no sex, no problem (except for that I’m depressed that I’m not having it). Sex, and I’m often in a world of pain (which I negotiate for a few seconds of ecstasy). Keep reading »
