An extremely relatable bathroom adventure with shapewear

On this particular evening I was in full Spanx. I did look great in the dress, but I had not thought about how bathroom breaks would work. I took a bathroom break during the award ceremony and it was exhausting.

I'm totally going to overshare here…

Do I shave my armpit hair to keep the peace with my family?

Several months ago, I committed to stop shaving my armpits. My cousin is getting married in a couple of weeks. The wedding is a big deal, and will be pretty formal. My extended family dynamic is such that it will likely be perceived as a personal attack to the bride if I show up with hairy pits. I'm really conflicted. Do I just shave for the sake of keeping the peace? Do I hide my hairy pits? Or do I just say "Fuck it!" not make a big deal of it, and let my family and my cousin think what they think?

We tested out press-on nails to see if they've gotten any better since the olde days

I recently saw an Instagram story where a non-beauty guru was telling us how easy it is for normal types like me to use press-on nails and have them last for more than a minute. This was news to me as the last time I wore DIY fake nails was for a wedding way back in 2004 when they lasted all of two hours, max. Surely they've gotten better since then, right? I decided to put them to the test.
