I was one of the millions of people who woke up at the crack of dawn on Saturday morning to witness the union of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Now that Meghan is the most popular woman in the world, at least for the moment, I wanted to list some of the most attractive qualities about the Duchess of Sussex and why everyone can look up to her.

1. She never pretended to be something she wasn’t

Not everyone is fit to be a princess, and that’s okay. Meghan probably wasn’t either, but it is evident that some of her own personal qualities before she met Prince Harry seep through into her new royal lifestyle. Her philanthropic work, her style, and poise, etc. already came naturally to her.

2. She had her own career, desires, and ambitions

Although, now as a royal, Meghan has to give up a lot of her old life; that doesn’t make her previous career successes any less notable. If she had never met Harry she would still be able to stand on her own two feet. That is something everyone should strive for!

3. She never let the past define her

Let’s not forget, the Duchess of Sussex used to be married! I bet that poor guy is sorry now.

On top of that, she has her own family issues just like everyone else, but that never stopped her from living out her dreams. I think everyone can relate to this quality that Meghan has displayed; No one is perfect, and we all have things that we have done or said that we have learned from, and that have put us in the right place at the right time to receive something better.

4. She was a force for change

Besides having her own acting career, Meghan was involved in different charity organizations, including being a UN ambassador. Her new life is giving her an even bigger platform to make the world a better place and create change. She isn’t just a pretty face, she has a good heart as well.

5. She is proud of who she is.

It was quite evident, if you watched the royal wedding, during the couple's ceremony that there were aspects of it that have never been done before. The choir and Bishop Michael Curry, who delivered a beautiful speech on love. The two cultures were fused together seamlessly. I think it was admirable that Meghan vouched to have those parts of her life incorporated. She didn’t conform to the classic royal traditions, she made some new traditions of her own.

This is just one woman’s qualities that I think have a great deal of importance and relevance in the world right now! There are strong role models everywhere, they don't always have to be wearing a crown.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
