Go Naked on Your Next Vacation

This isn’t a sensual, romantic or happy post whatsoever. You probably opened it because it said “naked,” in the title, and that part I meant. Hey, it got you to open the article, didn’t it? Don’t worry, I included a picture of a half-naked girl, which has made your time thus far totally worth it. Anyway, this is a rant – a rant about how awful it has become to travel with bags on an airline. Recently, I flew to Santa Barbara. I had an awesome time. On the flightRead More

Can’t Get No Satisfaction

I think we can all agree an important part of having a relationship with someone is intimacy. All relationships are different and every person is unique in what they like behind closed doors, or in public…whatever you are into, no judgment here.  Relationships require communication of course, but in the bedroom communication is just as important.

The indulgence of beer has been documented as aRead More

A Practical Guide to Happiness

With the New Year approaching, I’ve noticed an uptick in the number of self-help articles appearing on my Facebook Timeline. I wish I could say that I’m not the type of person to get suckered into reading them all, but I am, because I’m a girl and we love to read that crap. Here’s what I’ve noticed, though—Most of these articles focus on attaining peace and happiness through meditation, weight loss, shopping, and spiritual outings.

Movies that Aren’t Awkward to See with Your Family

The holiday season always results in a parade of new movies in theaters. If you haven’t already heard, The Wolf of Wall Street is the worst possible movie that you can see with your entire family. Word on the street is that its opening scene involves ingesting drugs off of the bare rear end of an “escort.” Let’s make sure that this doesn’t happen to you (again). Start off the new year on a good foot with your family, ideally a foot that doesn’t involve cringing during extended noisy sexRead More

9 Books and Their Great Beginnings

You’ve got something great to tell the world. A novel, a poem, a short story. The words will be worth millions. There will be readership, a New York Times bestseller. Then a movie, and then viewership,and theme parks at Disney World. You sit down to smack some keys. Your mind goes blank. You don’t know where to begin. You get up. You decide to make dinner instead.   Every great story must have a great beginning. I sat down to a couple of national and international classics to see howRead More
