8 Reasons To Visit Louisiana

There's more than beignets and swamps.

8 Reasons To Visit Louisiana

Not everyone is lucky enough to have grown up in "The Boot." If you didn't grow up in Louisiana, there are more than a few reasons why you need to make a trip to the South to experience this amazing state firsthand. From the music to the food, the culture in Louisiana is truly like no other.

1. The Food

Food is probably my favorite part of Louisiana (the beignets are still really important). You can't find true Louisiana food anywhere else, other than Cajun country itself.

2. The Sports

Nothing's better than a Saturday night in Death Valley or a Sunday in the Superdome watching the Saints play. Geaux Tigers!

3. The Swamps and Bayous

As a Louisiana native, driving over the bayous and past the swamps will never get old.

4. The Plantations

Louisiana plantations are beautiful and serve as almost every single wedding venue in Louisiana.

5. The Words

From the names of our foods to the names of bayous and cities, outsiders are always questioning our pronunciations.

6. Mardi Gras

We all know why this is great. Can't forget the king cake.

7. New Orleans

Louisiana natives always have New Orleans down the road for a day trip or weekend trip, and NOLA always makes for a great time.

8. Louisiana State University

We have pride in our Tigers and whether you choose to attend Louisiana State University or not, Louisiana natives will always bleed purple and gold! Geaux Tigers!

Louisiana is such a unique place and everyone should be sure to visit and experience all that its culture has to offer. Louisiana has something for everyone, from the food to the sports to the history!

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
