On What the Hell Should You Do With Your Life?

I'm 25 and I just got married. It did improve my relationship in the sense that being allowed to live and work in the same country improves a relationship. I also had slutty college years to see what that was about and get it out of my system, but it definitely wasn't the kind of thing that was going to stay fun for me much longer. Also as I am about to celebrate my two week anniversary I don't think I am some sort of expert but I'm pretty sure looking at it as "the end of your story" is the wrong way to do it and if I felt that way about it I probably never would have gone through with it. It's setting yourself up for failure.

On Ask a Jeweler: Nonmetal Bands, Gem Appraisal, and Inherited Damage

We bought my engagement ring from an antique/vintage jewelry dealer in France and I think we broke a few of those rules. I haven't gotten it appraised by a third party yet (we're moving to the UK and I guess we need to get insurance from there) but I'm a little nervous about it.

On The Best Scones

I made these with chocolate chips and dried cherries and they were amazing! Although they were "just a bit golden" at about 12 minutes and pretty damn golden by the time I took them out. No harm, no foul though.

If you are a January person that is into birthstones and you didn't already know, garnets also come in green and they are awesome.

On An Ode to the Diva Cup

@Ellie If those are the reasons you like tampons and you are not grossed out about blood/sanitary things you would LOVE the diva cup. I too had a history of having a hard time fitting things in there but the "origami" of it is not really that complicated and it gets a little easier as you wear it in. When I was using tampons I felt like I had to think about them all the time because they would leak and they have to be changed all the time and I would forget to put extras in my purse, but the Diva Cup has made all of those problems go away.

On An Ode to the Diva Cup

I have one of these and the only thing that squicks me out is the idea of boiling it so I don't do it! Do you dedicate a pot to it? I wouldn't dare do that when I had roommates and even though now my roommate is my fiance who has to deal with gross things from me all the time I still can't bring myself to do it. I put it in a solution of about 5-10% rubbing alcohol and water and close it in a cupboard for a few days. I have heard doing this can break down the silicone but it's worked for me so far.
