Girls are the Eighth Wonder of the World. They are living and breathing works of art, existing in various exquisite forms and silhouettes. They face the dreaded wrath of Mother Nature every month and still manage to be brilliant and successful. They even possess the incredible power to bring life into this planet; enduring one of biology’s most vicious forms of parasitism in order to do so. Place them in a chaotic and restless city like Toronto, and you’ve basically got yourself a couple of superwomen.\nDespite being subjected to ceaseless scrutiny by a society that is suffocated by an overwhelmingly caustic male pride, life as a female is still wonderful and fascinating. Whether you’re a Toronto girl or just a girl in general, you’ll surely agree that these simple joys of life make womanhood worthwhile:\n1. Taking off your bra after a long day\nDowntown Toronto can tire the 'girls' out.\n2. When your 'time of the month' is finally over\nThank you Canada for no-tax feminine hygiene products.\n3. Removing chipped nail polish\nDuring your entire TTC commute.\n4. Getting your nails done\nSay, at Ana's Nail Boutique (for all you Bloor-West Villagers).\n5. Having your eyebrows shaped to perfection\nEye Love Brow & Beauty Bar, anyone?\n6. Freshly shaven legs\nJust in time for a day trip to Ashbridges Bay!\n7. Guessing your right foundation shade\nA quick grab-n-go at Shoppers Drug Mart that changed your life forever.\n8. Finding a pair of jeans that fit amazing\nPriced at a gazillion dollars at Lavish & Squalor?? Still buying them.\n9. When you and your friends have the same shoe size\nLess trips to Eaton's Centre and more trips to your friend's closet.\n10. Pulling through a parking spot\nEspecially at Yorkdale Mall, which is always so damn busy.\n11. Napping through a rainstorm\nSometimes you look forward to that Toronto hurricane watch.\n12. Achieving the perfect selfie\nWith the beloved Toronto skyline in the background.\n13. Unexpected compliments\nFrom the cute barista working at the Bay St. Starbucks.\n14. Washing off your makeup at the end of the day\nAlong with all of that glorious Toronto grime.\n15. The smell of your crush's cologne\n"Walk into the room and you can smell the Clive Christian scent."\n16. When your curls turn out right\nAnd you hit up Muzik just because you can't let 'em go to waste!\n17. Taking off your heels after a night out\nBecause EFS actually stands for "Each Foot's Sore".\n18. When your eyeliner is even on both eyelids\nAnd sharper than Mitch Marner's blades.\n19. Getting a package in the mail from your online shopping\nAn every day version of Christmas.\n20. Receiving flowers\nA bouquet from Alma Florist in downtown makes you feel a type of way.\n21. When your crush messages you first\n"I don't know if you know, but I know who you are; you could be as big as Madonna."\n22. A glass of wine after work\nAnd the relief that some Toronto LCBO's have extended their hours of operation.\n23. Hair ties that don't break\nSephora Ombre Seamless Hair Ties are life.\n24. Good lighting\nLike at a window seat at Black Canary Espresso Bar in the daytime.\n25. Removing split ends\nCourtesy of Split Ends Family Hair Salon.\n26. When your makeup is still on point even after sweating all day\nThwarting the unpredictable Toronto temperatures.\n27. Long tweets that fit 140 characters on your first try\nIt's a sign that your tweet was meant to be read.\n28. Receiving long, meaningful text messages\nComplete with caps lock phrases and "holding hands" emojis.\n29. Clean and fully-stocked public washrooms\nNot like the sketchy one's at Sneaky Dee's.\n30. Dad jokes\nPerhaps the best pick-me-ups for any day.\nWhat are some of your simple joys of life?
