Female Cosplayer Battles Body Shaming

By Lauren Linhard –

You may have mistaken Alicia Snook for Emma Frost or Princess Ariel at the Great Philadelphia Comic Con, but one thing you couldn’t miss is how this badass woman is breaking down cosplay stereotypes.

It’s called cos-positive, a new movement in the cosplay community dedicated to challenging the idea that you need to look a certain way or have a certain body type to dress as a character. Continue reading “Female Cosplayer Battles Body Shaming”

The Real Cost of Being a Bridesmaid

By Elizabeth Paal CFP®

Since the time when our parents said “I Do” the wedding industry has grown into a multi-billion dollar business, thriving on young women who’ve spent their lives fantasizing about that one special day they get to walk down the aisle in a white dress.  

The average wedding in the U.S. costs about $28,000, but that doesn’t include events leading up to the big day such as the engagement party, bridal shower or honeymoon. While the bride’s family may have a hefty bill at the end of the day, those picked to stand by her side as lovely bridesmaids also have a large price tag associated with their role.

Making Friends Is Easy (Until It’s Not)

Taylor Kuether – @taylorkuether

Making friends is easy…until it’s not. From preschool through undergrad, friends are all but guaranteed. Social circles crop up and envelop you in seamlessly.

Potential new friends are everywhere: raising a hand next to you in class, playing sports with you, attending the same club meetings, singing behind you in choir. You’re all the same age, you all eat in the same cafeteria and, hey, you’ve got one more thing in common – you go to the same college.

Postgrad, is a little different. Continue reading “Making Friends Is Easy (Until It’s Not)”

A Year After ‘Three’s A Crowd’

By Jamie Schafer – White Hall, MD

One year ago today I didn’t know how I would ever recover. I had hit rock bottom and couldn’t  see a way out. The emotional pain behind the mind-f**k I was experiencing at the time was too much, and I couldn’t wrap my mind around any of it. The beauty is that, now,  here I am, a year later, and happier than I could have ever imagined. Continue reading “A Year After ‘Three’s A Crowd’”

Honey Do Me List

By Lauren Linhard –

Sex should be a toe-curling, back-arching, orgasmic good time. If not always, then almost always. But often it’s one of the first activities sacrificed when “life gets in the way.” This phrase, my friends, is the gateway drug to a monotonous, repetitive and, sometimes, totally forgotten sex life. Continue reading “Honey Do Me List”

Relationship Contracts are for More than Kink

By Ky’lea Wright – Baltimore, MD

With the rise of “Fifty Shades of Grey” and other “mommy porn” books, the idea of relationship contracts might not seem that crazy if you’re looking to add a little spice to your between-the-sheets life. However, for those of us who still walk on the vanilla side of the bedroom, a relationship contract might seem a little far fetched. Continue reading “Relationship Contracts are for More than Kink”
