Summers are awesome. Winters are brutal. A lot of young professionals. Minneapolis can be somewhat trendy. I view it as a rather “healthy” place. Lots of healthy food options and a lot of various activities to do especially in the summer months.

Just feeling afraid that I won’t get the things I really want. I just really want to have a loving family. I want to have kids (at least 3) and a life partner. Getting worried because my closest friends are getting engaged and having children and now I’m single again. Don’t want to be desperate but not sure how to put myself out there besides dating apps. What are you ladies doing to meet people?

Hey Ladies! I have been a contractor for almost a year on a majority white team. I noticed the two white contractors that started with me were converted to perm last month. I was moved to another team (which is mostly black) before it happened but still got word of it happening. After that happened I started looking deeper in the company and saw a pattern. Nobody who looks like me is in leadership. I’m seeking new opportunities now and would love suggestions for more inclusive companies.

My sisters and I are in a very complicated family situation. We are currently looking to move our parents to the state I live in. This all would entail supporting them fully, financially. Any advice on how we could go about doing this? Would it be best to rent or get a condo for them? Any general advice would also be helpful.

I am also in the process of finding another job that pays a lot more so as to support this all.

Hi ladies! For those of you who have done laser hair removal: According to online research it’s recommended to do laser hair removal with a board certified doctor. However I found a great place (amazing reviews, close, solid prices, uses the Yag laser for darker skin) but they have registered nurses perform the sessions. Have you had any experience using a Dr. vs RN and would you recommend trying it with an RN? Or is it better to stick with a Dr? Also if anyone has any recs for LA places too!

About to finish my first six sessions of laser hair removal for legs, underarms, and Brazilian. I’m seeing some great results but probably not more than 60-70% hair reduction. I know it’ll vary by person, but how many sessions did it take for you to see all the hair gone? I’m wondering how many more I should estimate I’ll need to get!
