    We Did A Two-Month Fitness Challenge And Here’s What Happened

    We’re sweaty. We’re stronger. We’re obsessed. Yes, we’ve made it to the end of our #STRONGer2017 fitness challenge and let us tell you, it’s been a whirlwind. We spent the past two months slaying (well, attending) two to four STRONG by Zumba classes per week, we buckled down on improving our eating habits and we actually started paying attention to the […]

    Here’s What To Wear No Matter Where Your First Date Is

    Here’s What To Wear No Matter Where Your First Date Is

    First dates: They’re nerve-racking, thrilling or (more likely) a heart-pumping combination of the two. First and foremost, there’s that weird expectation that permeates the entire evening. Will we hit it off? Will this work out? Though how the evening will turn out is anyone’s guess, another dilemma persists: What do you wear on a first date? Cue the wardrobe/personal/existential […]

    11 Times The Cast Of ‘Girls’ Spoke Our Truth

    Regardless of what social media tells us, life in your 20s isn’t all boozing on rooftops and first-class trips to Thailand. (Really, though, can someone put an embargo on Instagram bragging?

    How Your Relationship With Your Female Friends Evolves Throughout Your 20s

    How Your Relationship With Your Female Friends Evolves Throughout Your 20s

    Female friendship: It’s a special kind of beast. It has a depth and a beauty that no other relationship can offer, but let’s be honest: It’s complicated AF. And by complicated, we mean that it can seem pretty insane to the untrained eye. Remember the “Girls” episode when they went to that beach house and over the […]

    6 New Companies That Are Solving Education’s Biggest Problems

    6 New Companies That Are Solving Education’s Biggest Problems

    We’ve all heard the theory that the most successful businesses have one thing in common: They identify a problem that people have and they solve it. If only it were that simple.

    7 Things Successful Female Entrepreneurs Want You To Know

    Here’s the thing about female entrepreneurs: They are — GASP! — regular entrepreneurs. And like all entrepreneurs, they work nights and weekends, do their best to kill it in the boardroom and truly believe in the missions of their companies.

    11 Times You Should Do What’s Right For You – Even If It Hurts People You Love

    11 Times You Should Do What’s Right For You – Even If It Hurts People You Love

    Growing up, we’re taught that selfish = bad, and selfless = good. We’re told that putting others before ourselves is what “good” people do, and putting ourselves before others is, well, you can fill in the rest.

    Sharing Is Caring?: Here’s What Happens When You Realize You’re In A Love Triangle

    The love triangle: No self-respecting rom-com is complete without one. It’s tumultuous, it’s full of intrigue and it’s pretty much the utmost in juicy, cinematic drama. But while a love triangle can be sexy and entertaining onscreen, finding yourself in an IRL and unwitting ménage à trois isn’t exactly ideal. Don’t get it twisted: We’re big believers […]
