Books about ‘kick-ass’ women might be a pain in one – but we need to hear these wondrous stories

The ever-insightful late Toni Morrison once famously said: “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” The publishing industry’s appendage to that is: “And even if it has, write it anyway.” This week, it was announced that Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea will publish The Book of Gutsy Women – about the women who have inspired them and are “leaders with the courage to stand up to the status quo, ask hard questions,...

I Went to Culinary School—and These Are the Cookbooks I Actually Use

Confession: I very often cook without recipes (like, all the time), but I also really love a good cookbook. Sometimes it’s just easier to have someone tell you what you need and what to do in order to end up with dinner at the end of a long day. I’m picky about my cookbooks though. Not all cookbooks are made equal and I don’t want to waste my time with one that isn’t great. Luckily, I have a (very large) collection of cookbooks that are, in fact,...

Embrace a Positive Mindset with These 6 Tactics

Here’s a scenario we all can relate to: You’re deep in the throes of despair. That light at the end of the tunnel? It’s so far from where you’re at you might as well be gazing at Pluto. So, how do you go about changing your mindset from a negative to a positive one? “We often think that by simply telling ourselves to ‘be more positive’ we can magically shift all of our emotions,” Clara Artschwager, a dating and relationships coach, told Girlboss. “But what we...

These three inspiring women have turned their inventions into start-up businesses

When the high street couldn’t offer what these three women needed in their day-to-day lives, they took matters into their own hands… Lindsay Forsyth, 34, lives in Edinburgh with her partner, Blair, and runs the natural skincare brand, Bare Beauty Botanicals. As a teenager, I suffered from mild breakouts, so I knew how important 
a good skincare routine was. And, I’d happily fork out on expensive scrubs, cleansers and toning lotions. The more expensive the better, I figured. Only at 33, I developed cystic acne. It...

These Swimsuits Are So Cute—You’ll Want to Plan a Vacation Around Them

After the winter we had, we’ve never deserved a sunny, beach-filled getaway more than we do now — it’s been months since we’ve felt the sun hit our skin, and our vitamin D levels have been depleting since September. We have spring getaways planned, and are more than ready to hit the pool. We’ve scoured the internet for the best bathing suits, and we’ve found the best one-pieces and bikinis with the most flattering colors, cuts, and shapes. You’ll be wearing these from spring break through...

If You Don’t Like Vibrators, It’s Because You Haven’t Tried These Three

Don’t worry, we’ve got three friendly vibrators that will add a special buzz to your bedroom play. This vibrator is super versatile, so you aren’t limited to using it for internal pleasure only – use it to stimulate your clitoris or run it over your nipples during foreplay. Or turn...

I Saved $200 Switching to These Drugstore Makeup Products

If a financial expert were to look at my bank account, he or she would stare in awe at how much I spend on makeup. A $40 foundation once every couple months, that $50 highlighter I bought “for a special occasion,” a $60 eyeshadow palette I needed as soon as it launched. Not to mention, I’m constantly repurchasing products when I use them up. After a quick look at my (lack of) checking account balance one night, I knew something had to change. Haha, you thought...

Celebrate Femininity in These Pretty-in-Pink Outfits

Pink is ubiquitous when it comes to fashion. However, there hasn’t always been such a variety in shades of pink available, allowing women of all ages (basically-anyone over 13). This new ‘pink revolution’ all began in the unlikeliest of corners of design: technology. Apple introduced us to Rose Gold, which progressed into the ballet-slipper-esque Millineal Pink. At the same time, women’s rights have come to the forefront, with the first Million Women March sporting beanies with cat ears, catapulting the “pink pussy hat” into mainstream culture....
