Review of the Week: Remedies (April 29-May 5)
Whenever the seasons change, I get hit with a massive bout of flu/cough/cold/generallyfeelingicky. It's not a pretty sight.

We Tried It: The Diva Cup
Here at ChickAdvisor, there's very little we won't talk about. I like to think that we've gotten to the comfortable, 'old shoe' phase in the relationship (where we just slide right in and get cozy with each other). I wouldn't even be grossed out if you farted in front of me.

Mommy Memoirs: I Met the President (and I Liked It)or Roadtripping with Kids: A Survival Guide

5 Surprising Beauty Myths Busted
Not too long ago, we discussed a few common beauty mistakes.
I will shamefully admit that I was guilty of committing more than one of them. This got me thinking about what else I might be doing wrong when it comes to beauty. Perhaps the beauty advice my mother gave me as a young teen wasn't actually as accurate as I thought? With this in mind, I set out to do some beauty detective...
