The latest challenge I have taken upon myself has been experimenting with waxing. Here are the reasons I decided to give the Nads Hair Removal Strips a whirl. 1.  My friend said she only has to wax twice a month, if that. I have to shave almost every other day if I don’t want the [...]

Since we are practically out of the recession, I thought I could post something kind of stupid without getting chased down and lynched by an angry mob of readers. First, I want to admit that the recession never really affected me. I didn’t have a house to lose because of it. I didn’t lose my [...]

I was supposed to post this yesterday, but honestly I fell dead asleep entirely too early and woke up this morning ridiculously late. It’s my body running the show I think.
