Broke-Ass Luxuries For The Poor

Broke-Ass Halloween Costume Idea: Christmas Tree

Dating In New York Can Be A Bitch Y’all

Coming from a sweet, idyllic little town in North Carolina (seriously, my hometown’s slogan is “The Friendly City by the Sea”), wading through the convoluted waters of the New York dating scene can be downright disheartening. If dating back home was a refreshing dip in the lake, dating in NYC
