ADULTS:

People who collect paychecks, pay bills, and don’t live on their mama’s couch.

Pretty simple. Yet, somehow, a little short sighted? (We would hope so.)
American culture has defined “being an adult” as the completion of moving from the age of dependence to the thrill of being self-sufficient. Oh, and the cut off date is normally around 22.  Yikes. But…that seems to miss the mark a bit. ALL of you know people who check all three of those boxes, yet they still tend to act like giant infants. So, what are the real signs of being an adult? Well, if you align with these 8 items, then you’re a a mega-adult in our book. We don’t care what your paycheck OR your mama says. Here are eight signs you’re an ADULT. Read More

With all the attention the Introverts are getting on the Internet, it’s time for the Extroverts to have a voice.

And our voice is louder by nature, so this shouldn’t be too hard (obligatory extraversion joke). Obviously being extroverted is awesome, but we have to deal with crap too, ok? So our friends at Blush have put their heads together to come up with some things that need to be addressed. Ladies and gentlemen…here we go. Here are seven things extroverts want you to know.

1. We Aren’t Hitting On You. Chill Out.

The great thing about being extroverted is that we really do like to socialize with everybody. The not so great (or maybe also really great) part about being extroverted is that we don’t take gender into account.

Basically, if we ask if anyone is sitting next to you, we aren’t doing that coy flirtatious bit. We just want to sit down. Or, if you down your last sip of {insert age appropriate drink here}, buying you a refill doesn’t mean we’re trying to date you. We just have good manners. (Oh, stawp!) And last but not least, if we ask for your name, we are not hitting on you. Believe me, you’ll know when we hit on you. And you will like it.

Advice for Handling Swimsuit Season

SWIMSUIT SEASON

 

Summer is rough for most of us – which is why we have the tips and advice for handling swimsuit season.

 
It may not mean anything to guys, but this means a heck of a lot to girls. Whenever the weather warms up, we all become aware that we’re only one boogie board and some tanning oil away from swimsuit season and insurmountable insecurity. Sun dresses, mini skirts, and the dreaded bikini are back in action, ripe and ready to mock our normal-sized thighs. I mean, with all the pressure out there, how in the world have has someone not made a fortune over water proof sweat pants?

Remember our post, 6 Things That Plague Every Girl? It’s one of our staples, and #1 tends to come into full effect. Yes, Carnival Mirror Syndrome is a real thing, and we all suffer it’s symptoms. We think it’s a consequence of the times. For example, if we lived in the 1920’s,  summer wouldn’t be so stressful given their swim ensembles. They practically wore jumpsuits.

6 Things that Plague Girls Self-Esteem

tips self-esteem

 
 

Having the freedom to rock lime green nail polish and a pencil skirt at the same time is a blessing…

 

…and clearly that’s just the tip of the iceberg (and my own strange taste). Girls have an uncanny ability to feel, express, and communicate. CNN has reported higher female college graduation rates for many years (we’re smarty pants) and, as shown by SNL and summer blockbusters, we are practically taking over comedy (we’re funny too!).  Of course, those are just a few examples of our fabulous qualities.  We excel in almost every facet of American culture, and every decade we make greater and greater strides to protect and expand our rights (basically…we’re awesome).

However, being a girl cannot be condensed to a shade of nail polish or Tina Fey (love ya girl).  We have our challenges too, and this is where Blush wants to help. As girls, we seem to have various tendencies that we all must overcome in order to help our self-esteem.  Our thought is that awareness of these negative habits will help us all get there faster. This list is for you to decide what challenges you the most, and to work on it for the New Year. Girls self-esteem might be challenged constantly in everyday life, but we’re here to remind you how awesome you are. Remember, you’re not alone. Blush is here to help you sort through any of the following challenges, because we’ve had to deal with them too! Read More
