Comments are off for this post.
Sanitary towel and tampon ads don't exactly portray periods in the most realistic way. If it's not strange-looking blue liquid being poured on pads, it's women jumping around splashing each other for reasons that remain unknown to us.  Bodyform's latest ad shows something refreshingly different. An actual period.  The ad opens with red liquid being poured onto a pad. Not a drop of blue dye in sight! It also shows a closeup of a woman's thighs in a shower, with menstrual blood trickling down the inside of her leg—a sight that's familiar to anyone who has periods. The ad is [...]

No-show socks are terrible and I’ll never stop wearing them

Image: Amazon No-show socks are my sworn enemy. I hate them: the way they instantly slip off my heel the second I step outside my apartment, the way they pool around in my sneakers, and the way they still somehow peek over the sides of my loafers, rendering their name a lie. But I will never stop wearing them. Why? When they work, they look ... so cool.

Image: Shutterstock/Dmitry Morgan The dog days of summer are officially upon us, and with them a specific, heat-induced desperation. Scenario: a few days ago, I decided it would be fun to walk to the park. I wore a nice floral sundress festooned with flowers lovely, right? Wrong. The dress was lined, and as the temperature crept above 90, those sticky sleeves and two (two!) layers of skirt fabric slowly adhered to my extremely sweaty flesh. And I was filled to the brim with hot, unmistakable regret. Why didn't I wear shorts and a tank? I thought. Why didn't I wear [...]
