Throughout the years I’ve collected countless morsels of sweet insight into the shrouded mystery that is “being a woman”. Without the inspirational wisdom from my grandmother, mother, friends, and idols like Tina Fey I simply wouldn’t be the woman I am today. Come closer, friends, for today I’m going to share with the most prized gems from my collection of wisdom, the 6 secrets of thriving in a woman’s world.
Tan fat is prettier than pale fat. –Mom
Shallow? Maybe. True? You bet. If you’re not going to invest time in going to the gym, then you better be putting in time in bed. The tanning bed, that is.
A sugar-free life is no life at all. –Grandma
According to Grandma, it’s perfectly okay to eat the non-sugar-free pie at Pioneer Pies despite an upcoming, rather important blood test. The woman’s got priorities.
It’s okay to go out with a guy even if you’re not that into him. It’s like boy coupons. – Danielle Vinnedge
Let’s be honest. Whether we want to admit it or not, we’re all guilty. You may use the “maybe he’ll grow on me” or “it’s just casual” justification, but when it comes down to it he’s no more than a coupon in a Lacoste polo.
In a public restroom, always hold your feet up so no one knows you’re in the stall. – Alyssa Baker
According to Alyssa Baker, there’s actually an entire (mentally unpublished) book on bathroom etiquette, and this little tidbit would be the back cover.
It’s okay to spend all of your money on foundation if it looks good. – Mom
Me: I probably could have fed Ethiopia for what that makeup costs. I can’t keep it.
Mom: Do you live in Ethiopia?
Mom: Does it look good?
Mom: So, what’s the problem here?
True love is finding someone who loves you and your crotch biscuits. – Tina Fey
Crotch biscuit: the flabby triangles of fat between your thighs.

Some of these are so true! Being a woman is hard sometimes, but it’s totally worth it! Totally going to share this with my other lady friends! 🙂
Thank you! I’m so glad you agree, and you are just too sweet to read through our classes blogs. I’ve noticed you left comments on others! It’s very encouraging.
Loved this blog really made me smile, you have a wicked sense of humor. Presentation of your sight is lovely and well laid out I love it. 🙂
Thanks so much! The compliment is definitely appreciated, and I love knowing that someone got a kick out of my blog. Always encouraging! 🙂
Just came from the Dermatologist…skin damage is ugly and irreversible! While I still think tan fat looks better, I recommend an occasional day at the pool. All the money you save on tanning sessions can buy you some gorgeous makeup — Mom
Hahahaha oh Laura, this made me laugh so much.
Not really sure why I just read a blog titled: “How to be a woman” (maybe on some level I hoped insights into what it is to be a woman would help me know what it is to be a man), but I enjoyed your post nonetheless. I’d watch out about number 4 though – the advantage with having your feet down is that at least people know the stall is occupied, so no one tries to burst in, which can end unfortunately in my experience!
