Hello Internet Gold. 

Ok, so obviously I love GIFs (who doesn't) and I'm a sucker for hilariously open and spot-on comments on anything sexual /women's health / LIFE. I thought I'd do you a little favour and compile my top 5 favourite times when the internet just got us gals (and okok I know, it's a lot of Buzzfeed, but they really kill it). 

You're welcome.

FIVE:  19 Things You Know If Your Urinary Tract Gets Infected A Lot

Of course I saved one of the best for last (since you know us Mingo Flamingo's are all about fighting evil UTI's) *Sees a girl drinking cranberry juice* I'm so sorry, I feel your pain.


#6   You've also downed entire cartons of cranberry juice, only to find out it's utterly useless against UTIs.
