Problems with Big Boobs

13 Problems that Women with Big Boobs will Understand

Problems with Big Boobs

Because big boobs can be a problem. 

1. Utility bras only!

Cute bras are not dependable with big boobs and are only used for sexy time lingerie since they only cause problems with every day outfits.  

2. Forget button down shirts!

The problems is that they never fit the arms and chest. Buttons tend to pop open even if you wear an undershirt with the top buttons un-button. If you actually find a button down that fits, you must treat it with the dignity and respect that it deserves. 

3. You have to try on at least 20 bathing suits to find One contender.

Forget swimsuits that are the same size at the top and bottom and one-pieces, they never work.

4. You always have back pain.

At a certain point in life you just began to ignore this as one of the problems with big boobs. Back problems are now apart of the everyday. 

5.  You have to hold your chest to run.

No matter how many sports bras you wear.

6. Guys and girls are constantly looking at your chest.

7. When you wear strapless you are risking a nip slip.

8. When you wear anything that doesn’t cover your breast fully, you are risking a nip slip.

9. When you don’t wear a sports bra or a bra that make you look like you have a uni-boob you are risking a nip slip.

10. You have become okay with the possibility of having a nip slip because unfortunately it has happened.

This may be a huge problem with big boobs, but you have learn to get over it. 

11. You have to wear nipple covers with regular bras in case of a nip slip.

Nip slips happen regardless if your boobs are in a tee-shirt or v-neck. 

12. You have to become comfortable with the possibility of always finding crumbs in between your boobs.

Otherwise it would be gross.

13. You use deodorant under and between your breasts.

It gets so sweaty!

Boston, Massachusetts: Today, in Boston, Dunkin’ Donuts is selling their new debut Dunkin’ Donuts Fries along with pretzels and waffle-breaded chicken fingers and more as part of a new $2 snacking menu.

Today’s food test will serve as a way to gain feedback from customers and employees to help determine whether to sell the items, nationally.

 

Fast food restaurants are constantly changing items to keep up with their demographic. Dunkin’ Donuts on the west coast is now Dunkin’. Taco Bell recently introduced the $1.00 Nacho Fries, which have been a successful launch. McDonalds has recently taken the “Hot and Spicy” off the menu, resulting in petitions and boycotts. Wendy’s has now launched a campaign jesting McDonalds.

Advice from a Wedding Planner: Top 5 Skin Face cleansing products

Beauty and skin products have always been on my priority list. I remember getting my first Optimum points card at the Pharmaprix, one of Montreal’s drug store at the age of 12. Since then I have always had a secret obsession with skincare products and makeup. At an early age I knew that my skin was super sensitive, so I tried not experiment too much. I started off with Aveeno because it was super mild and ideal for sensitive skin and now I am using mostly, if not only, Clinique products.

Amongst my sisters I am the “go-to” person for which face wash, makeup and lipsticks to get. When I got my first part-time job, it was nothing but saving and then spending at Pharmaprix. My very first experiments were done with Lise Watier’s makeup products, then I jumped onto MAC and now well, like many of us, I am in love with Sephora.

I love Sephora because they can find specific products and brands according to your type of skin and their products are just amazingly fabulous. Clinique won my heart because of how specific their products are: they pretty much have products matching every skin type and still giving a 3-step plan.

Now let me share with you my Top 5 beauty and skin products:

1. First things first: The Cleanser.

Clinique cleansers, toner and face lotions are the products that I use every day, day and night. I use the mild foam cleanser: a gel to foam activate with water. It does not have a strong scent and it deep cleanses your skin; I even use it as a makeup remover. To find out more about the product click here.

 

2. The Toner:

I use the Clinique Toner in number 4, the purple solution. What I love about Clinique is they have regime and products based on your skin type whether you have normal to dry, or just simply oily. I like to say I have combination skin type because my T zone is oily and my cheeks and around the mouth area dry. Toner is important because sometimes washing just doesn’t do the entire trick, so toner removes all the traces of dirt and oil that was a bit more stubborn. To find out more about the toner click here.

3. Moisturizer:

Also, from Clinique I use their face moisturizers. They have two types of face lotions; the gel formula and the dramatically different formula. I use the gel formula in the summer because my skin is already naturally oily, and I use the Dramatically different formula in the winter when its colder and dryer. To find out more click here .

4. Exfoliant/Masks:

If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve seen me share my love for the glam glow line of masks. I have tried all of them and a great way to do so is at Sephora as they have the sample sizes of all the masks. That gives you an opportunity to try them all and see what works for your skin type. I use the green jar, which is the power mud; it is a dual cleanse mud to oil formula. This mud mask is LIFE!! I absolutely love it, love the way my skin feels after using it. Just. Love. It. To find out more click here.

5. Make up Remover:

I use the Clinique Take the day off. This is a balm formula that you rub on to take your makeup off. Its turns from balm to oil but girl when I tell you it works, IT WORKS. To find out more click here.

Dishwasher

8 Practical Things you Can Wash in the Dishwasher

Staff Reporter

Household tips to make the process of cleaning things from our daily lives easier to manage. Tangible things. The other stuff you need to speak to your shrink or maker about… Here are practical things you can wash in the dishwasher that will save you tons of time.

Dishwasher
Guess what! You can wash more than dishes in these things!
  1. Hair brushes and combs (clean out the hair first) and then put them where you would normally put the silverware. 

2. Dog Toys (because they are gross). 

3. Pet dishes (they need to be cleaned once in a while). 

4. Potatoes (but wash them with other things because it will waste electricity). Unless you are cooking mash potatoes for an army.

Potatoes can be cleaned

5. Fingernail clippers (instead of dousing them in alcohol, use this method). These are one of those household items that do not get washed enough.

6. Ziplock bags or steam bags (The dishwasher will wash and almost dry them). This way you can re-use the bags.

7. Hats or Caps (They need to be washed to prevent forehead acne. Afterwards, spray the inside area with alcohol for double duty cleaning) If you do not want to use alcohol use vinegar. You may have to rinse a lot to get the smell out. *

Do not use peroxide because it might change the color of the cap. 

Hats and Shoes in dishwasher

8. Canvas Shoes. I.e. Vans/ Converse (start off by washing them in the dishwasher and then finish by scrubbing the rubber parts with a toothbrush or another applicable brush).

What else were we not taught!

Basic things you should know, but don’t. Don’t worry, we didn’t know this too. 

1. Prunes are Plums.

Fermented Plums. Why can’t we just keep it simple and call them “dried plums”?

Bowel of Plums

2. Your Veins are Blue or Green because of the way the light reflects against your skin.

The light penetrates the skin and illuminates your veins and this the color that we see. Maybe we were taught this in Elementary School…

I knew blood was red!

3. Women are born with eggs.

There is a scientific debate if women make more during their lifetime, or when they are born they are born with all the eggs they will have throughout their life.

Anyhow, it is strange to think that we already have our future children with us from our actual birth-day.

You've been carrying eggs since Day 1!

4. Baby Carrots are actually ugly regular sized carrots.

That are cut in an adorable smaller size with preservatives added to keep them fresh. Things you should know, perhaps.

5. Money is made out of Cotton.

Well 3/4 cotton and 1/4 linen.  Makes a lot of sense if you think about U.S. History and the impact cotton had in the U.S.

6. Celery  have negative Calories.

This is a common saying, but in fact Celery has 6 calories. The “negative calories” stigma comes from the belief that the energy it takes to chew and digest it burns more calories than intake. But this is good to know if you want to use a dipping sauce that has a lot of calories.

Why Farting in Relationships is Actually a Good Sign

Farting in Relationship, although gross, is normal, but what does it mean for your relationship?

Your on the couch with your girlfriend or boyfriend and your stomach gurgles.

Your immediate reaction is to clinch. Hold on tight! Don’t let it go!

We keep it in as an effort of producing and maintaining a picture perfect image, but hold the phone… 

According to research, farting in relationships is actually good sign for your relationship.

What!!!??? All of those painful gassy moments were for nothing?

Before you start polluting the air space around your hemisphere, let’s learn why farting in relationships is a good sign.

Mic, a digital news company, surveyed over 125 20 and 30-year-olds to see when most people “break the fart barrier”. Their research found that “most people wait between two and six months into a relationship, which also happens to be prime ‘I love you’ time.”

What does this all mean?

Acceptance.

If you are able to be yourself, without judgment, with your significant other – your relationship is headed in the right direction. A positive milestone. 

I can remember the first time I farted in front of my husband. It was 10 years ago and about eight months within our relationship.

We had gone on a nine hour road trip with several other people and had finally arrived to our hotel room. Long story short, I thought he was sleeping, only later to find out that he was up and heard all of my trumpets, as I let out hours worth of pain. After I found out that he heard me, and I broke the fart cherry, I decided that the stomach pains were not worth it. Wow, what a lifestyle changer. 

 

So yes, farting in your relationship is a good sign because it shows acceptance and comfortability.
