With the temperature rising and summer fast approaching, I thought it only appropriate to dive into an issue that isn’t really talked about “Thigh Chafing“. After the whole thigh gap phase, people decided to spread self-love to those who do not have natural skinny thighs and started saying thick thighs save lives. I was team thigh gap only for one reason, it meant that those with thigh gaps don’t have to suffer the physical pain of chafing, or having to prematurely throw out your favorite pair of jeans over and over again because your thighs rub a hole in the crotch area. Or having to pull your shorts out of your crotch every five seconds while walking. But the worst problem with having thick thighs is chafing and how painful it can be. I love my thighs but they cause me so much pain. Which is why I decided to share two simple tips to combat chub rub when wearing shorts and dresses during the summer.
One day I thought I wondered if my deodorant would help my legs glide smoothly versus chaffing up a storm. And man does it work. If you are going out in the summer with your daisy dukes on rub some deodorant between thighs before you jet out the door, seriously you can thank me later. Don’t forget to carry a stick deodorant with you so you can reapply throughout the day.
Where have you been all my life? It’s better than having to wear spandex shorts or tights all the time and honestly, the lace ones can look really sexy.( wink wink) The ones I have are brown lace to match my skin tone and they have the no-slip silicone around the top and bottom of it so that you don’t have to worry about them rolling up or down. I’ve worn mine twice and the first day I wore them I was driving on a hot day and getting in and out of my car and walking around and they didn’t budge. I honestly forgot they were there. I only had to make sure of crossing my legs since my dress was on the short side, didn’t want people knowing my secret. But too late because the cat is out of the bag. You could also wear them with shorts for a sexy edgy look. Bandelettes are the true hero of this blog post and I hope that women around the world who suffer from chaffing can now live more carefree and stress-free lives with the aid of a pair of bandelette.

Does it feel like Spring? Maybe just a tad I’m not too sure. Well, it is almost here!
Springtime is one of my favorite times of the year, in college I knew it was approaching spring when everyone was outside playing frisbee or catch or when all the fraternities blasted music on my walk back to my dorm. Anyway, that’s in the past.
Spring is amazing because all winter we were bundled up in a cocoon now we can emerge like the beautiful butterflies that we are and flutter our wings and fly.
Onto the real reason for this blog post, I have been wanting to do a review on this amazing top I purchased from my friend Emily, she has her own online boutique which features affordable trendy styles. I bought this a few weeks ago on her 1 year anniversary of having her boutique. I immediately fell in love with the beautiful blues and the Crisscross opening.
When I received my package it came with a free pair of white druzy earrings(i wear them every day now) and a thank you card and what I assume is a business flyer, all in all, it is phenomenal branding. I got a size medium and it fits perfectly. I will definitely be wearing it more now that the weather should be getting warmer.
Unfortunately, this top is sold out but there are more amazing items you can find at the HiddenGem.
If you are like me then you love when you feel the first fall breeze, and you immediately think riding boots, long strolls through the park and pumpkin spiced everything. I have decided to compile my most favorite things about fall, and what you can and should do this fall.
4 Things to do this fall, that you probably do every year.
1. Corn maze
It may be a bit too early for this, but I love the corn maze. the one i would go to also had a pumpkin patch and a haunted maze!!! Grab your a few friends and go explore a corn maze and see if you can make it out. Make it a game and try to make it out in an hour. Or make it a date night with hot chocolates and go later at night to have a great night of talking and trying to figure you’re way through the maze.
2. Trails, Parks, and Paths O My..
I have always loved a great walk. I think it was all the evening walks I took with my family after dinner that got me hooked. I live in Indy so I love the Monon trail. The great thing about the Monon is that it literally runs through the entire city of Indianapolis so no matter where you are you should be able to hop on and enjoy a nice scenic route.
3. Pumpkin everything
If you knew me say about 4 years ago, I wouldn’t care or even believe the hype of pumpkin flavored anything. I think it happened when I tasted pumpkin flavored cookies, and I fell in love. Quick backstory I had never really had anything pumpkin flavored before, my family is from the south and for thanksgiving we make sweet potato pies not pumpkin pies. So while out at the grocery store pick up a few pumpkin flavored like pumpkin flavored toaster strudels or candles, I did. Oh I almost forgot Starbucks has started selling PSL, basic girls everywhere rejoice!!
If you’re like me you love to shop, but cant do it as much due to priorities i.e bills, Netflix binge watching, waiting to trim down a few sizes.
So heres 4 fall staples I think every woman should have or aspire to have. You can never go wrong with a great black bootie to go with anything from jeans to dresses and cardigans. I also have a huge obsession with the color mahogany which is why i picked a mahogany kate spade cedar street maise which i have one in a different color i cant think of at the moment. Enjoy
