      I’ve tried Dior, Chanel, Benefit, Too Faced… every high end, 5 star mascara out there. I keep going back to Maybelline Great Lash with the BIG brush. It’s basically the identical brush to Diorshow but with a better formula and at a fraction of the cost. And I love it because it comes in brownish black, which no high end mascara does. I have a lighter skin tone and the brownish black looks a lot more natural on me for natural/light makeup days than black does. But I still keep it on hand in blackest black for my glam looks. It’s a cult classic for a reason.

      Not being diagnosed until I was 24 because I had been a very active athlete in high school and college and my crackpot pediatrician said my irregular periods were common for serious athletes. I went from 110lb 18 year old to 225lb 28 year old. No matter what diet I’m on or how much I exercise, nothing changes. And being stressed or depressed about my weight gain just makes it worse because of the cortisol levels. I had my boyfriend of 5 years dump me because I was told I would most likely never have children. I can’t afford fertility treatments or a surrogate or adoption so I will never have children, which has been a heartbreaking realization for me, made worse by everyone in my life saying things like “When are you going to have kids?” Everyone else in my family is incredibly in shape and beautiful and it makes me feel excluded and distance from my own family and like I can’t enjoy myself around them. I am constantly so ashamed of my body that I hide indoors every weekend while my family enjoys our beach house. It has severely affected me not only physically but mentally and psychologically. I want nothing more to be the 110lb girl I was when I was 18 and now half of my life has been wasted hiding away.

      For our first date, my bf asked me to meet him at an address and said he wanted to take me out for drinks and appetizers. I arrive, and it’s a small municipal airport outside Boston. He comes walking out with his frenchie, Batwing (I basically fell in love right there), and told me to come with him. He takes me through the airport and out onto the tarmac where a small 4 seater plane was sitting. We get into the plane and he could immediately see the panic on my face and assured me we were safe (he’s an actual pilot and flies a private jet for a living). We took a quick 20 min flight to Provincetown on the tip of Cape Cod. When we landed we walked to the beach where we drank wine (I drank wine, he had Pellegrino), ate cheese and meat, talked, played bocce and let Batwing run along the beach. At sunset we flew back, and he even flew over my house so I could see it from the sky. Almost a year later, we still take the plane to the Cape and the Vineyard for dinner often. Best. Date. Ever.

      Mushrooms are not vegetables, cream cheese and heavy cream is NOT the same as marscapone, and brown sugar and water?? This is insulting to anyone who knows how to cook. How in the hell was this written by Stop & Shop?!?! This is the perfect example of why I don’t shop there… because they obviously know nothing about food. I’d rather buy overpriced tahini from Whole Foods than have a Stop & Shop employee tell me “We don’t carry tahini. Mix this peanut butter with water and it’s the same thing”.

      SoCrates03, thank you for your response. While it’s true that I have obviously never been in your kind of position, I can certainly understand that it must be a very hard thing to live with. However, as difficult as your situation or any other family’s situation may be, my issue stems from the fact that regardless of how great a guy your father was (and still is), he still did something wrong. The prison system (however flawed) is a system of punishment for wrongdoing. While I don’t condone the stripping of basic human rights from prisoners, I do believe that part of the punishment of jail should be that you don’t get all the amenities of home. Unfortunately this can include affordable call rates.  And Isabliss, I never claimed to be perfect. I have serious problems that I deal with on my own. I don’t ask for help from anyone, but I also don’t put my life on the line but doing something that could ruin my life. And I function in the real world just fine. In fact, I’ve been living in it for quite a number of years now. And you know, I wasn’t born with money, but I have it now because wouldn’t you know, I worked hard and I got it.

      Why should I have empathy for these people? Nobody feels sorry for me and my problems (which, yes are real problems to me but I recognize that nobody gives a shit about someone unless they’re poor or disenfranchised). If my coworker gets fired for “making a mistake” my boss won’t rehire her to give her another change or try to “rehabilitate” her. You know, you’re the ones that keep calling them “criminals”. I’ve just called them prisoners. And the way I was raised, I don’t surround myself with people who smoke or sell weed or do other stupid shit like that. If being an upstanding citizen who abides by the laws makes me above it all, then I guess I am. And having regrets is a lot different than lacking the common sense to not do something illegal for some instant gratification. I actually think about things before I do them.

      Hey David, I feel like maybe you don’t know the difference between making a mistake and doing something illegal. A mistake is writing down December 3 when it’s December 4, not getting arrested and sentenced to prison. Go ahead and think I’m a snob and a bitch because I would look down on someone I knew for going to jail, but I care about myself more than to surround myself with people who would do things dumb enough to get arrested. It seems to me that someone doing something that could potentially send them to prison is someone that isn’t really thinking about their friends and family, but only themselves.

      Is this serious? Like are you seriously trying to write an article about prisoners not getting to make phone calls enough? Actual prisoners, as in, people who are in prison for committing crimes and breaking laws but it’s a travesty because their call rates get jacked up? You felt this was important enough to necessitate an entire article? C’mon, man. Phone calls are not a basic human right. Nobody cares that Whitey Bulger can’t call his brother for less than $20.

      I don’t disagree with you at all, because I actually didn’t say anything close to that. Don’t take what I said and manipulate it. What women SHOULD do is avoid getting so black out drunk that they don’t remember going to bed with (or getting eaten out in public by) a guy and then claim in the morning that they didn’t want it. They need to learn to keep their wits about them in public so that IF they find themselves in an actual situation where something is being forced on them that they don’t want, then they are mentally and physically capable of saying “no”. And while they’re at it, they can start taking responsibility for the dumb sexual decisions they make instead of throwing out the word “rape” or “sexual assault” because they’re being judged for a one night stand. I understand that there are devastating circumstances of actual rape and I am in no way devaluing those cases, but there is a difference between a case like this girl and one like the Ariel Castro case where he literally had women chained for years with no escape. Let’s have a little perspective here.
