Problems Girls Have To Deal With (And Small Ways We Can Fix Them!)

Thank you to Kotex for sponsoring this discussion. All opinions expressed are mine and that of The Caro Diaries.

Sometimes being a girl sucks. Like, guys have it so much easier a lot of times - because for one, they don't have to deal with major female issues, like periods or giving birth (that's a big one!). So lucky them. I was complaining to my roommate how much issues we girls have to deal with, and saying how much it sucks that guys get off on a lot of these - like why don't they have to deal with hair and makeup? 

Whenever I'm going out at home with my brother, he always gets so mad at me because I take forever to get ready to go anywhere. I'm sorry, but if we're going to a party at a club or bar, I have to do my hair and makeup, choose an outfit, prep my feet for heels, and make sure my outfit is accident-proof - we don't want anything showing! He, on the other hand, just gets to throw on a pair of jeans, loafers and a button down shirt, because life is nice when you're a guy apparently. But I'm trying to fix that! Well, at least try to help us ladies out in some small way.. 

I'm sorry, but last time I checked, guys don't have to strap two bad boys down to their chest, make sure they aren't roaming free, yet still have to make sure they look good in our dress/shirt/outfit. Bras are such a struggle, and I am insanely jealous of all the small-boobed girls who can pull off the "no bra" look because they are truly the most uncomfortable things in the world. Plus, no matter your cup size, strapless bras just fall down and feel horrible, and you're guaranteed a fashion malfunction unless you're double and triple checking that thing!

Guys certainly don't have to deal with strapping on a pair of 5 inch death wishes to their ankles either. Yes, I know this is technically optional, but as a 5"3 bonafied shortie, I like my stumpy legs to look a little leaner and longer with the help of my friend the pump! He does wonders for me ;). Of course I always expect myself to look like this in heels..

And I end up looking a little bit more like this..

If you're like me, and love the look yet can't spend too long in them, invest in a pair of Tieks! I got mine a couple weeks ago, and I haven't taken them off since. I throw them on in the morning, with my heels in my handbag, and switch whenever I'm ready. And later, whenever my feet feel like absolute death, I switch back and into a piece of heaven.

{doing our hair and makeup}
I'm sorry, but do guys actually have to care how they look? Because we do, and it sucks! I mean yeah I get that guys have to fix their hair (or lack thereof) before they go out, but all they do is slab on some gel, tousle it a couple times and then it's usually done. Although, as a sister to three brothers, it takes them a little longer than that - inefficient! We, on the other hand, have to blow-dry or straighten or curl our hair, especially if we aren't blessed with the hair of an angel - much to my disappointment. Then, we have to manage to make our faces look presentable - and by that I mean actually have our eyes match - you know how bad I am at doing that. Although I'm hopeless at doing my makeup, I'll share my little hair (not-so) secret with you: I use Moroccan Oil on days that I want my hair to be a little shinier, a little smoother, and a little less frizzy. I just put some in my hair after I get out the shower, and then towel-dry my hair and let it dry naturally. It works for me.. 


You didn't think I'd let this one go, now did you? Let's be real, periods can easily be the worst part about being a girl sometimes. Does anyone else feel like they turn into a raging psycho, or is that just me? JK, let's not feed that stereotype. But periods suck for many reasons: cramps, mood swings, bloating, cravings, and ruined underwear! 
I don't know about you, but I've ruined quite a few pairs of underwear in my lifetime from unwanted and unexpected leaks. I even now have designated "period panties" - TMI? Anyways, thanks to U by Kotex, we don't have to worry about ruining our underwear anymore. With their new 3D Capture Core technology, they lock all liquids in and they ain't going anywhere, especially not on our expensive undies! I've been using these all week, and I think I'm officially convinced - I'm saying goodbye to my old go-to pads! 
And, if you head over there now, they'll send you a free sample to try and to convince you to make the switch too. Need any more convincing? Check out how cute the packaging is! 

Do you absolutely dread your period too, or is it just me? What other issues do we ladies have to deal with? Thanks to U by Kotex, ruined undies isn't one anymore

  1. Haha these are all so true! And who doesn't hate getting their period?!

  2. I'm giggling away over the heels reality! Bahaha! So true for me, too! :P

  3. I love the photos & gifs! LOL

  4. Lol this was a great read; kept me laughing the whole way through and strolling down memory lane! I LOVE wearing heels since I'm super short, but I totally relate to EVERYTHING else. Great post.

  5. hahahaha YES! Men have no idea!!


  6. LOL love this post. I'd gladly give up the heels most days for a comfy pair of athletic shoes but I love the makeup!

  7. I LOLed about the bra one. I'm a 32DDD but wear a size 4 pant and am 5'3", so it's definitely a struggle! This is a creative twist to the U By Kotex campaign. I just did what's in my bag!

  13. No matter what type of Michael Kors Bags Outlet each individual got, they all had one thing in common. We all know that getting something on sale is like winning a mini lottery, but to find a name brand handbag like Michael Kors Black Friday Sale for instance, discounted is like a slice of heaven on earth. I have personally attacked my husband with hugs and kisses when finding Official Coach Outlet Online at discounted prices.

    Michael Kors Factory Outlet stores can be found in malls all over. MK Outlet and other Coach merchandise can also be found in some boutiques. Inspired by the same material baseball gloves are made from, these Coach Bags On Sale Online are versatile and stylish. Since it's conception, the Michael Kors Handbags Outlet has been produced into a variety of designs, colors, shapes, and styles that have won top pick of millions of women the world over.
