A Few Things Every Princess Should Know About Underwear

sutil

Underwear is a very big part of our lives. There are lots of rules when it comes to underwear especially for girls, so here are some rules about underwear that every girl should know. Some of these I was taught, others I had to learn the hard way, but now I am choosing to share all of my knowledge with you.

1. You can never own too much underwear. Seriously don’t let anyone tell you otherwise ok, there is no such thing as having too much underwear. I mean really there are so many different kinds, you should really own one of each kind. Also how can you not take advantage of those 7 for $25 deals at Victoria’s Secret? Besides the more underwear you have, the less often you have to do laundry.

2. Thongs are an interesting thing you either love them or hate them. Now I know what some of you are thinking, “why would I want to walk around with a wedgie all day?” Go out buy one, try it once. If you hate it, then toss it and never wear them again. If you actually don’t mind it then maybe go out and buy a couple more, like I said, you can never own too much underwear. But NEVER wear thongs to the gym because that can cause a yeast infection.

3. Try to stick with cotton underwear because synthetic fibers can cause an infection. You want stick with cotton and other natural fibers. Types of underwear to avoid include: nylon, and lycra.

4. Don’t be afraid to go commando, it can actually be good for you.

Now let’s talk about bras….

5. If your boobs are hanging out from any part of your bra, it doesn’t fit. So go buy a new one.

6.Get measured at least once a year. Seriously trust me, on this, there’s nothing worse than realizing none of your bra’s fit.

7. Buy 1 bra every time you have money. If you buy them all at once, they will all wear out at the same time. If you buy them all at different times you can avoid this.

8. When you buy a bra it should be tight on the loosest hook. That way as the band loosens you can tighten it.

9. Make sure you always own, 1 black, 1 nude, and 1 strapless.

10. Make sure you always use a bra bag when washing your bra’s.

11. Always, always, ALWAYS hang dry your bra’s.

A Few Things I Learned From Bookcon

This past weekend was the second annual Bookcon! It was absolutely amazing, I met some of my favorite authors, made some new friends, got a few new books, and I also learned a lot. I got to hear from some amazingly talented authors, and all of them had a lot of wisdom and insight to share with all of us, about writing, careers, friends, life, just everything. So here are all the things I learned this past weekend at Bookcon:

1. Try not to start or end your day on your phone. There is so much more to the world than just your twitter and Instagram, and I think a lot of people have forgotten that. So consider changing your routine, maybe instead of reaching straight for your trusty metal companion take a few minutes, appreciate the world around you. Say hi to your family, look at the trees do something that does not involve the internet.

2. Friend break up’s are a thing, and they hurt. When most people think break up they think about a significant other, but friend break ups are a thing and they can hurt even more. The truth is ending a friendship hurts, most of the time it hurts more than a regular breakup. Your best friends they get to know everything about you, they become apart of you and loosing them is like loosing a piece of yourself. But when this happens know you are not alone, there is nothing wrong with you. Other people have been where you are, and they got through it and so will you.

4. Define yourself before others have the chance to. People are always going to judge you no matter what. So forget about other peoples opinions, because the truth is no matter what you do you can’t please everyone. So you might as well piss them off being your true self rather than pissing them off being a fake version of you. So now go figure out who you are and just be that person.

5.Do what you need to stay calm. Everyone has that thing that helps them calm down when they are nervous or anxious. Whenever you get anxious or nervous do whatever you need to do to help you calm down. Whether it’s doing jumping jacks, twerking or singing some Taylor Swift. Don’t worry about if it’s going to bother someone else, or what other people may think. Worry about you and do whatever you need to calm you down.

6. Take the time to take care of yourself. I think this one is pretty self explanatory, but a lot of people still don’t do it. Just remember to take some time for yourself. Give yourself a facial, take a nice bubble bath, go shopping, binge watch a show, just treat yourself every once in a while.

7. Step away from your work. You don’t need to work all the time, especially if your an artist. As an artist your work should reflect people and life. If you work to much it will start to reflect other work instead of reflecting yourself. So step away from your work give yourself a break, then come back fresh faced and ready with tons of new ideas.

8. Just keep submitting your work. If you want to write, or paint or become a photographer or whatever, just keep submitting your work to people and eventually you will hear something back.

9. It’s not about the shares. Don’t write something because you think other people will love it and want to share it, write something because YOU want to write it. Write about what you know, about what you love and are passionate about, because writing is not about what other people think, it’s about expressing yourself.

10. Whenever your feeling bad about the way you look, go do something else. Go write in your journal or practice your music, just focus on something that has nothing to do with your looks. Remind yourself how awesome and talented you are, then remember that looks aren’t important, it’s all the other stuff that really matters.

Check out Penguin Random House youtube channel to see all that you missed at bookcon. And make sure to watch the Sophia Ross, Tavi Gevinson panel which is where most of this advice came from.

Life is all about figuring out how to rule your own kingdom. So my lovely Royals I thought I would share some tips to help you on your journey. Some of these things I was taught, others I had to learn on my own. But now I am choosing to share all my knowledge with you. So here are some things every Royal should know,

  • Never grocery shop on an empty stomach
  • Always hang dry your jeans
  • Always check the tags on your new clothes to see how they should be washed.
  • Make sure you have at least 1 close friend that is always brutally honest.
  • In the winter make sure you stock up on chapstick, lotion and moisturizer. You don’t want your skin to get too dry.
  • Always remember that your doctor works for you. So if you don’t think they’re not doing a good job then fire them and get a new one.
  • That being said never lie to your doctor, they can’t help you if they don’t know what’s going.
  • Learn to take constructive criticism.
  • Learn the difference between people who are giving constructive criticism and people who are just plain old assholes.
  • Never let anyone be an asshole to you.
  • Never apologize for being who you are.
  • Don’t forget to treat yourself every once in a while. You deserve it!
  • Keep a separate email that you use only for junk mail. Use it for your social media accounts, and stores that send too many emails.
  • Don’t let your emails pile up. Once your inbox gets to 100 go through it because if it gets any higher you won’t want to.
  • Try not to have too many email accounts. Trust me it gets out of control.
  • There is no such thing as bad music. If you like it then it’s good music.
  • There are however bad movies and bad books, and people reserve the right to mock you for liking them.
