R29's Best Stories Of 2013

What a year, huh? You've grown, and so have we. And, because we just can't help ourselves, we're getting all nostalgic and maybe just a bit teary before we put on our NYE makeup tomorrow night. To that end, we're going through the archives and pulling out some old favorites. Not to pat ourselves on the back, but hey — we've come up with some good stuff this year. (It's all for you, naturally, dear reader.) 
Ahead, the best R29 articles of 2013. Yep, we're talking the ones you loved, the ones that got you talking, and the ones you'll want to read again (and again). Get to it, before the ol' ball drops.
