It’s so weird when, in a generation that literally has endless amounts and sources of information at our fingertips, that you there are times when you can actually feel alone. The beauty of the internet, in my opinion, is that it gives a friendly face to topics that we might shy away from in our real lives. Like, um, certain women’s health topics. When it comes to what goes on, down there. So what do you get when you bring together women’s health, you know, down there, and some of the internet’s friendliest faces?
Some of you probably already know–through Instagram–that I participated in a lively roundtable discussion with U by Kotex, Generation Know and really fascinating bloggers, some familiar, some new, but the day was extremely interesting–I have to say inspiring, actually. It was a great experience to learn about mavens in the media redefining what it is to be a woman.
The discussion was lead by Dr. Vanessa Schick of Indiana University (and author of many a book, she penned Read My Lips, a guide to vaginal health for young women), vlogger Kat Lazo (super sassy, smart and my next haircut inspiration) of The Kat’s Meow, and Caitlyn Boyle of Healthy Tipping Point. All of the ladies in attendance have such unique points of view, I have to give a round of applause to Glam for the bloggers that they chose to participate in the discussion.
We tweeted, Instagrammed and most importantly, talked about vaginal health. How we learned about our bodies–I wasn’t the only one who read the American Girl book, The Caring and Keeping of You,–how we were given ‘the talk,’ and most importantly the biggest misconceptions that we had about our bodies. It was eye-opening to say the least. The very things that we thing make us weird, are the very things that bond us as women it seems. I’m thankful to Glam and U by Kotex for the opportunity.
And the chance to wearing sequins and lashes. I’m all about that life, hehe. Did I mention that I am loving New York? I am. I promise we’ll talk soon about that.
p.s. Did you see Khloe Kardashian Odom on Good Morning America talking about Generation Know?? Woot woot!
