5 Moments The Royal Wedding Brought Me To Tears

5 Moments The Royal Wedding Brought Me To Tears

I'm not crying, you're crying.


On May 19th, I, like many Americans, woke up at the crack of dawn to turn on the TV. Why? The Royal Wedding of course! From the fashion and the guest list, to the ceremony and then the procession, there's just so much to discuss.

Even though the ceremony only lasted an hour, these 5 moments will surely last a lifetime.

1. Meghan Markle walking down the aisle

Meghan Markle looked like a vision walking down the checkered aisle in a simple, elegant Givenchy dress topped with a stunning diamond tiara given to her by the Queen herself. Besides the obvious, let's talk about the fact that the mini bridesmaids and pageboys were the cutest thing EVER!

I couldn't help but think they looked like her little ducklings when they were walking behind her down the aisle of St. George's Chapel.

2. Prince Harry seeing Meghan for the first time

The lip bite, the smile, the part where he literally said "you look amazing," where do I begin? It was all just too much for my heart to handle. A tear was most definitely shed.

3. The Vows

If you've been on Twitter or Instagram lately you've probably seen the picture of Meghan Markle staring at Prince Harry with those wide, brown eyes. If you ever doubted their relationship, that doubt was washed away if you watched them say their vows.

The way they looked at each other was the stuff movies are made of.

4. Prince Harry getting emotional when they sang "Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer"

Prince Harry wears his heart on his sleeve, and that's why he's so universally loved. It is no secret that the Prince had a very close relationship with his late mother, Princess Diana. It is also no secret that he suffered a great deal when she passed away.

This song was played at her funeral and was a reminder that she was with her son on his special day. Prince Harry quickly wiped his eye and nose at the conclusion of the song, but if you caught it, it was quite touching.

5. The First Kiss

The kiss. The smiles after. This is the content I signed up for. What a perfect end to a fairytale wedding.

If this article confused you because you're the only person on this earth that didn't see the wedding...please go watch it. I guarantee your skin will be clearer, your stomach will be flatter, and your life will be longer, that's how magical it was.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).
