Why I haven't washed my hair this year
The last time I used shampoo was sometime in November 2014. I am one of the many who has jumped on the no ‘poo method craze. To be honest, I never intended to completely disregard my favorite natural ‘poo. I really just meant to scale back on my shampooing; instead of shampooing every week, I

It's O.K to be plain vanilla
No one ever wants to be referred to as plain vanilla, as in lacking unique qualities or any interesting traits, but to be honest, I’ve never hated the term. Using vanilla for hair growth and anti-aging treatments has kind of always been my jam, and the results have been anything but

I wonder why my tattoo artist hates me? Here are 10 reasons
Whenever I go into a situation outside my house, I am very conscious of how I can NOT be a douche bag. This includes going to bars and not being “that guy” that asks how much their tab is after every drink, and of course, it includes being aware of things tattoo artists hate. Sure, for most of us,

There’s no point in avoiding all the things that age your skin, because avoiding everything that leads to premature aging means avoiding all things fun. At least, that’s my opinion. But hey, that’s what anti-aging face masks are for. Sure, there are things I did in my early twenties that I

Even though I was handed down a fairly plump pout from my parents, there are still moments where I wish my lips were even bigger. My desire for bigger lips is not unique — according to statistics published by the National Society of Plastic Surgery, there were over 25,000 lip augmentation

"It's not all whips and chains" - S&M Tips from Me & Dandi Dewey, author of Dandiland Diaries.
When I first became interested in sex, or sex with people other than myself I should say, I was immediately turned on by the world of BDSM, albeit, at an early age. There was something illicit and natural about the kinkiness that it didn't take much for me to warm up to it. Back then, I didn't really have the confidence to approach my partner about wanting different things in bed. I could barely muster up the courage to ask to be on top, mostly I...

For me, nothing good ever comes from drinking vodka, unless you like a violent, promiscuous ball of unpredictable fire coming at you. But what about the benefits of vodka for skin? Even though my emotional allergy to vodka has prevented me from guzzling up Bloody Marys and cosmopolitans for most of

Just. Dont. Do. It.
My roommate has decided to take her virgin skin to an artist and get inked up at the ripe old age of 29. As getting a tattoo (or seven) becomes more and more socially acceptable, many “virgins” are getting in the chair without having a clear idea of how their life is about to change. Having gone

Beets are arguably one of the most delicious veggies you can throw in your smoothie, but I bet you’ve never thought to include them in your beauty routine. Dying your hair with beets is a great way to add a temporary reddish tint to your strands, without dealing with any nasty chemicals. You’ve

Ladies and gents, let me introduce you to the next biggest thing in natural skincare! Baobab oil benefits aren’t as widely known as, say, jojoba or maracuja, but they are definitely just as sweet. Baobab oil comes from the baobab tree which blooms once a year, often at night, and its native to

Green tea is no new thing, but the matcha version has recently gotten pretty hip. Not only is it great for an energy boost, but matcha green tea benefits for skin are massive when applied topically as well! And that’s what brings me here today, lovely readers. Green tea has always been one of my

Haters gon' hate
When I turned 18, I abruptly when to a sex shop and purchased my first vibrator. It was navy blue and sparkly, and it was annoyingly loud, it was also one of the first purchases that I actually regretted in my new adult life. The next stop on my “Let’s do everything that 18-year-olds are legally
