Whew, we’ve survived another wedding season! Now there’s a small window to recharge and safely scroll through our Facebook and Instagram feeds where apples and pumpkins, autumn leaves and warm blankets replace white gowns and sparkly rings. Until the holidays arrive and the next wave of engagement announcements come sure as sugar cookies and watching Elf.

That’s not coming from bitterness, I promise. Like many of my fellow ladies,

Alright, ladies. It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had some #GirlTalk on here. Let’s get right into it.

We Need to Stop Kink and Fetish shaming people

To put this conversation into context, I’ll explain where I’m coming from. I actually would consider myself a fairly vanilla person in my sexual preferences. I have a couple of fantasies here and there as I’m sure many people do, but generally I find myself feeling fulfilled by just connecting with my partner on an intimate level –

I bet you’ve probably heard something along the lines of “you shouldn’t use medication for anxiety or depression” at some point in your life.

Now before you all start saying I’m a crazy person, let’s just take a minute. Hear me out! Obviously we all know that periods have a lot of unfortunate parts to them. Believe me, I would know! I’m the girl who’s cramps are sometimes so painful that they make me nauseous. And they were even worse when I was a teenager before I began birth control pills. That being said, I really do think that periods sometimes get a bad rep despite all of the good things they provide our bodies with!

Ah, relationships and love. The topic on so many people’s minds from the time we’re old enough to have our first crushes (how old were you when that happened, btw? I feel like everyone’s is different and I’m curious to hear your answers!). We all experience romantic connection at some point or another, some of us with multiple people throughout our lives. But how do you know if your relationship is a healthy one that can withstand the test of time?
