For those who do not know, Toms are canvas shoes that were created by Blake Mycoskie after he took a trip to Argentina in 2006, and witnessed the hardships of children without shoes. His invention has since started a revolutionary movement as well as a stylish shoe.

1. Toms may be canvas, but they last forever.

These shoes last for ages and are absolutely perfect for casual occasions to fancier ones, especially since they now have pumps/heels. When I bought my first pair of Toms in 2011, they lasted me for the next 3 years.

2. Toms are comfortable and conform to your feet.

Coming from someone who has had to wear inserts in their shoes for years due to just poor knees and hips, Toms have conformed to the shape of my feet and allow me to not wear my insoles without pain! In addition, you don’t have to worry about tying your shoes (with most pairs, at least.)

3. They come in so many different sizes, colors, and patterns!

Toms have everything from pumps, slip ons, laced shoes, slippers, bags, and even sunglasses! They have wedding shoes to red canvas shoes to furry shoes to plain white canvas shoes that you can paint and design yourself!

4. Toms One for One program gives to those in need.

After visiting Argentina and witnessing all of the children lacking proper care, Blake Mycoskie created Toms and made it that so every Toms product one buys, a product will go to help a child in need. So if I buy a pair of Toms, a child in need also receives a pair! Not only is this a revolutionary charitable organization, but you also get a wonderful pair of shoes out of it for yourself.

5. Toms are simple in design and match everything.

Whether you are a dress kind of person, denim dude, or a hard worker, there is a pair of Toms to suit your lifestyle. With so many colors and variety, this simplistic shoe style will go with the perfect outfit for any occasion.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.

HBO

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
