5 Reasons That Black Is The Best Color!

The light lies in the dark.

There are plenty of wonderful and beautiful colors in the rainbow! There are so many of them that it is just too hard to pick just one that you love best. Many people say that they love blue or green. Society praises girls for wearing pink and boys for wearing blue. What about the colors that aren't in the rainbow? I tend to be drawn to black. Some argue that black shouldn't even be considered a color. I am here to tell you that the absence of light and the complete absorption of light is a beautiful thing.

1. Makeup!

Ladies! I'm sure that we appreciate many colors when it comes to finding what's best to define our eyes. There are some colors out there that work for different people depending on their skin tones and what they happen to be wearing. Black never fails to work its magic! Eyeliner, lip liner, mascara, and other things look great and make a huge statement in the makeup world. Black often gives a lot of definition to the shape of the eye that makes women come off as fierce. It's bold and leaves us with a powerful look that is striking and even in some ways intimidating (in a good way of course)!

2. The Way We Dress!

Many people over centuries of time have said that they believe black is the color that makes everyone look more slim. I think it's pretty true. Some people are afraid of their body types in different colors because everything is more pronounced in brighter colors. Black is totally different. Wearing black gives us a powerful yet classy feel. It's mostly worn as a professional color. It's a color that you can never go wrong with, and it goes with everything. In my opinion, every woman should have a "little black dress"!

3. Anybody Wanna Buy A Car?

Black cars are the best cars! I've seen so many vehicles that look gross and dingy because of their paint color. All colors are awesome, but I think black works the best. Brighter colored cars tend to look worse when they haven't been cleaned. They also overtime will have a significant amount of normal wear and tear. Bright colors just help show off the damages and dirt much better than black does. Black cars just seem to last a little bit longer when it comes to looks. On a side note, I personally think they are ten times cooler looking in black!

4. Animals!

A long time ago, society came up with a bunch of superstitions about anything and everything black. Cats were specifically disowned and exiled from society because they were believed to bring bad luck. This superstition is also why many people are afraid of birds. Those who gave names to specific animals had a reason for it. For example, a group of crows is called a "murder". A group of ravens is called an "unkindness". It's pretty unfortunate that animals are disowned because of their color. All creatures deserve the same amount of love and care as their multi-colored counterparts!

5. Photographs!

We've all heard the phrase, "a picture is worth a thousand words". Pictures these days are meant to be full of color and full of life. Cameras are updated and redesigned to bring out colors in their best forms. I think that colors are more of a distraction from the things that matter the most. We don't always get the full idea of photos when we focus on the yellows and the reds of the world. Black and white photos are amazing to look at. There's so much more under the surface that we can discover when we are given less to focus on. Many pictures even seem to be more profound and more beautiful when all of the paint is striped away. Those are the ones I love the most!

Let's remember that not everything that is black is considered to be cynical or harmful to our world. Black isn't just depressing and boring. It can bring things to life. Sometimes beautiful things are wrapped up in the most mysterious packages. Step outside of societal norms every once in a while. Go black. Go bold. Go beautiful!

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).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
