Take your vagina into your own hands. Health-wise, I mean. Stick your hands down your pants all you want, but I’m going to tell you about DIY gynecology. GynePunk, a Catalan collective from Calafou, is working to develop an emergency gynecological medicine tool kit. Like a risk-reduction kit, but for your lady bits. This toolkit would let you take samples from yourself and test them without having to pay for a doctor or be subjected to the “bureaucratic, statistical forms that perform a role of judgement of your practices, capacities or choices,” as described by GynePunk.

Summer officially started on June 21, which means these warm days are only going to get warmer. To cool down, the obvious way to start is by minimizing layers in our clothes. Unfortunately, this usually means running to the store to buy lightweight clothing, and if you’re anything like me, your budget cannot support the weather.

These makeovers have me convinced that I should ditch Brooklyn and head for the woods, airstream in tow. No? Bad idea? Fine.    I love this one; they kept the rustic, camp-y feel minus the spiders and dirt.    I'm pretty sure this airstream has more counter space than my apartment does. I'm not bitter. (Yes I am.)    Am I allowed to choose favorites? I think this one wins. Anything with a bed and wifi wins in my mind, though.    Images via Design Sponge, Country Living, Apartment Therapy, Anchored Home Blog Read More On Bust. Read More
