Never Grow Up

17 things I want my younger sister to know

Never Grow Up

Hey there, kiddo. Every time I turn around it seems like you are getting older and smarter and more independent. Life is flying by. So here is a little sisterly advice, some of it is cheesy and some of it is important, all of it is truth. Most importantly, I love you. Please, stop growing up.

1. Be a kid for as long as you can.

I'm going to cry the day you decide that you no longer want to play in the living room floor. I'm going to cry when you don't ask me to tuck you in at night anymore. Please, please enjoy your childhood. Soon you will have to pay bills and study and work hard. Enjoy the freeness of childhood.

2.Makeup isn't necessary

Makeup is fun. Makeup is expensive. Makeup is a lot of things, but it is never necessary.

3. Family is Forever

Hug mom and dad. Call grandma and grandpa. Love our family while you get the chance.

4. Wait on the right guy

Wait on a man who loves Jesus more than he loves you. Who puts your happiness above his. Who will gladly watch chick-flicks and go shopping. Wait on him. He's worth it.

5. Don't be afraid to dream BIG

Jump wholeheartedly into your crazy dreams. Ride each of them like a wave. Don't be afraid to fail. If you are going to fail, fail hard and fast then get up and try again. Don't let anything stop you.

6. Study Hard

School actually has a purpose, I promise.

7. Find Forever Friends

8. Only boring people get bored

9. You can never have too many journals

TJMAXX. That is all.

10. Happiness is a choice

11. Wear your heart on your sleeve

12. Be Authentic

13. Follow Jesus

14. Christian Rap

116 Clique (you'll thank me later)

15. Topknots are awesome

16. Be humble and quirky and confident

17. Choose Joy

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Sinning in Las Vegas

Be careful what you do and post


Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.

National Coffee Day is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than to remember why it's so amazing?

10 Reasons Coffee Is The Best In Honor Of National Coffee Day

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
