Hi there. Remember me? I’m that chick who went to beauty school, writes about beauty and body image and stuff, and then went MIA on you for all of last week without a warning.
Sorry about that.
The fact of the matter is, I had to write a 7,000 word story (that, hopefully, a few months from now — because that’s how time works in magazineland! — I’ll be able to tell you all about) and let’s just say when you owe somebody 7,000 words, you don’t feel like you have a lot to spare for anybody else.
I did, however, also churn out my usual 1,500+ words for Never Say Diet, plus one extra post because of how we took a short week earlier in the month.
So here’s what you missed while I was typing all of the words in the world:
- 12-year-olds are getting bikini waxes. Yep. It’s on Good Morning America, it must be so. You know I had to write about this one.
- Weight Loss Gum might be a thing soon. 4 out of 5 doctors agree that it sounds really weird.
- The xoJane girls have guts. Anyone with midsection issues needs to go check out their Belly Project stat because oh my word, it will make you so happy.
- Emma Sullivan scored one for sass. By standing up to creepy Kansas governor Sam Brownback, using girl guts of a different nature.
