How the “Selfie” is Affecting Self-Esteem

Online love

Never has the dictionary caused more controversy than when the word “selfie” was dubbed 2013’s “word of the year.” Selfies may be seen as silly, harmless fun, but they can also trigger serious self-esteem issues, especially for women.

Why We Love the Selfie

Let’s face it – nothing gives you a quick self-esteem boost quite like taking the perfect selfie. Your eyes are sparkling, your skin is glowing, and you know you look good. When you post it on social media and watch the positive comments roll in…that feels even better.

The selfie has become the digital version of the artist’s self-portrait. But while not everyone has the artistic skills to paint a great self-portrait, everyone can take a great selfie. It’s our way of showing who we are, of asserting ourselves and our individuality to the world. What could be more powerful?

The 20-Something’s Guide to a First Date Outfit

Oh, the dreaded first-date outfit: falling on the outfit difficulty scale between job interviews and the first day of school.

The first date is all about first impressions, so wearing something that makes you feel comfortable and confident will let you focus on whether your date is the one for you (or to plan an escape if he’s a total dud).

These four tips are a fail-safe way to plan the perfect outfit – and hey, if the guy doesn’t work out, at least you’ll have a cute outfit ready for your next first date!

1. Plan Ahead

Choose your outfit in advance so you aren’t panicking in your underwear 10 minutes before you have to leave. You are more likely to be relaxed and have a good time if you aren’t second-guessing the outfit you threw together at the last minute.
