These will help for getting into the Holiday spirit

10 Things To Do Before Christmas

Hi friends,

Less than two weeks until Christmas, woohoo!!! I have come up with a list of ten things you can do to help get you into the Holiday spirit. Plus, everything on this list is great to do with a friend!

1. Drink Hot Chocolate

Snuggle up by the fire, grab your favorite book and enjoy your hot cup of chocolate goodness!

2. Go Ice Skating

Even if you aren't coordinated (like myself), nothing beats trying!

3. Sing Christmas Carols

This has been on my to-do list since I was little. I'm going to see if I can convince a few friends to tag along.

4. Bake Christmas Cookies

My friend and I are planning to do this in a few days. We baked homemade cookies last year. Thankfully they weren't burned and they tasted delicious! Even if they turned out terribly, the best part was spending time with each other.

5. Christma Gifts

My favorite holiday thing to do, is pick out gifts for my friends and family. I love choosing the wrapping paper, bow and card for each one.

6. Watch a Christmas Movie

Here are a few of my favorites: Home Alone, Elf and The Santa Clause. Grab a soft blanket, your favorite treat and start binge watching anything relating to Christmas.

7. Write a letter to Santa

There's a cute town about 45 minutes away from me that has a mailbox setup specifically for Santa Letters. See if there is one in your town!

8. Donate Gifts

Call a local church or hospital to see what gifts they are short of. Check out Toys For Tots or Google charities in your area to give back to.

9. Make a Christmas craft

Pinterest has a million and one creative DIY crafts to do. There are crafts for all ages and crafting levels!

10. Build a Snowman

That is...if there is snow. If not, get creative and don't forget to take a break for a snowball fight!

Tweet me a photo of you doing any of these things! I'd love to see how you are #CoutingDownToChristmas

Part two coming next week. Stay tuned!

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

There it is. Even though I'm not around you, I can feel it. Was there a flutter of embarrassment in your mind when you saw the word sex in this article’s title? Did you look over your shoulder to ensure nobody was around before you began to read this?

13 Signs You Are A True Cancer Of The Zodiac

Calling all babies born June 21st - July 22nd!

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
