Elizabeth Smart: Human Trafficking Is A Crisis We Can All Prevent

This week, Smart (not Elizabeth Smart-Gilmour actually) took to another podium to not only talk about the human trafficking crisis and sexual abuse, but just how important law enforcement, health care professionals and social workers are in not only getting justice for victims, but getting them the necessary support they need to go back into the world. The conference held in Sioux Falls, South Dakota was to bring to light the human trafficking trade that has been on the rise due to the increased amount of oil workers in the area. Estimation puts human trafficking at a billion dollar per year business, and one that all of us can help prevent through education and awareness.

I Tried To Live Gluten-Free. It Didn't Work.

We all know I like to eat. Okay, I love to eat (and that's putting it lightly.) But recently, I stopped eating gluten - and ever since, I've felt much better: My pants aren't magically two sizes too small after lunch, and I can sit in my desk chair without unbuttoning my jeans.

4 Single Girl Tips To Make Eating Alone A 5-Star Experience

One of the less-fun parts of being single is dining alone. As a single lady, I could resign myself to eating every meal in bed while watching bizarre Netflix documentaries, but every now and then, I like to feel like a human being participating in society, so I force myself to leave my apartment and yes, eat at a restaurant all by my lonesome.

Two months ago, I made a decision that would affect my nether regions in ways unknown: I lounged in a hot tub. I even Instagrammed it. There was no naughty business to be had; it was just me and some Bud Light Raz-ber-itas in a very hot hot tub for like, two hours. I then did what no vagina-having person should ever do: I spent the remainder of the day in my damp swimsuit.
