Try to stick to some more realistic ones this year!

5 New Year Resolutions You Should Not Make

As 2016 comes to a close, most of us are in the process of making new Year resolutions. But what comes to no surprise is most of us do not stick to these for more than a week. For that reason here are a list of 5 resolutions you should not make this year.

1. Go to the gym everyday

It’s a good thought, but more likely than not you’re going to try to fit it into your schedule for like the first week of the new year then realize that it was a huge mistake and bail out. Instead, try to fit in a work out 2-3 times a week instead of trying to hit the gym everyday. Not everyone has the time to do that and that’s okay!

2. Giving up sweets/ soda

I mean come on live your life! It's really hard to give up sweets completely, so instead just reduce the amount that you have. I mean really, whats a life without chocolate?

3. Losing 20 pounds

This is a BAD and unrealistic idea. A revised resolution would be to lose 1 pound per week. It’s easier to stick to and way more realistic.

4.Trying certain diets

Instead of sticking to a strict diet plan that will make you hate your life, just try to eat lean meat and veggies with every meal.

5. Going vegetarian

If you want to lose weight, you have to burn more calories than you consume. Cutting meat completely out of your diet won’t necessarily help in that situation. Instead just try and reduce your meat intake.

Remember you want to make your resolutions realistic and attainable for you. Try not to make them too hard to follow, otherwise you will feel down on yourself for not sticking to them.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
