On Go On With Your Bad Self: Misadventures In Self-Improvement

Erin, after grad school I got back into reading for fun by reading anything entertaining and fluffy (or at least not too emotionally and intellectually taxing). I read my first romance novel (as in, sweaty man embracing a woman in a big skirt romance) and then read 20 more. I reread a lot of Agatha Christie and all of Dorothy Sayers. It took a year before I could read anything long and serious and not want to throw it across the room.
For the record, some romance novels are really good :)

On Ask a Jeweler: A Buyer’s Guide to Diamonds

When I was looking at engagement rings, I tried on a colorless "F" diamond that was much more expensive than the "I" diamond I ended up with. The F actually looked weird next to my skin tone. The I was still very sparkly and had warmth to it. I'm not sure if I'm explaining this well, but I'm glad I went with the color that looked good, not just the one that is supposed to be the best.

On Farewell, Jane

Oh no! Jane is the reason I realized I don't really look silly in bright lipstick! I'll miss her articles, they are ALWAYS entertaining :(

On Beauty Q&A: Shells, Bra Purses, and The Next New 'Do

@Jane Marie I spent a totally insane amount of money on my wedding dress and never regretted it for a second. That said, I much prefer the one you picked! No one besides my mom, dad, and husband actually knows how much my dress was, because I know they'd go from "cool dress!" to "seriously? that is stupid" in a hot minute. But I loved it dearly. (this is the dress - http://www.coutureinthecity.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/br-lu-112.jpg)

On Can We Still Be Friends?

@all the bacon and eggs YES! The entire time I was reading that article this was annoying me. Being friends with the opposite sex when you have recently been thrown into a huge new pool of people, are exploring the world of adult relationships, and have likely just left home for the first time? A little different than having an adult friendship with a member of the opposite sex.
Also, I hate it when articles like this imply that my male friends are all secretly into me even if I am not interested in them and I'm SURE they feel the same. Nope! Sorry! They want you! It doesn't matter how sure you are! Yuck...

On Girl Talk: Garrus

So with you on this one. It is all about the voice (and the scars). I played ME3 through the first time with my character who romanced Kaiden, but in the end I just wanted to rush through and play my Garrus romance character. Love him!

On Living With Breasts That Can Be Seen From Orbit

Those looking for a great bra store, if you are near an Intimacy, definitely check them out. They have amazing fitters and a billion great bras, something will work for you!
I love, love love, this article. The breast reduction one made me a little sad because I was wondering if maybe I was making the wrong choice, living with my 34F's.
I had a very similar moment with my Mom where I blew up at her for suggesting surgery a couple times and basically saying that I needed a major surgery to look "normal." Of course she didn't really mean it that way, but that is how it feels. My Mom also hates her big breasts, so over the years her voice has gotten into my head, even though I used to love mine. Now I'm going to go back to loving them! I've had a fitting, but I'm due for some new, cute bras!
