8 Reasons You Need A Hufflepuff In Your Life

8 Reasons You Need A Hufflepuff In Your Life

They are a little underappreciated, don't you think?


1. They're Just

Hufflepuffs are centered people with level heads. They usually try to seek justice for most situations and try to hear both sides to a story before making any judgements. They have patience and they treat everyone equally.

2. They're Loyal

Hufflepuffs are loyal. Period. Who stuck around to fight in the battle against Voldemort and his army? That's right...aside from the Gryffindors, several of the Hufflepuffs stepped up to the plate, even if they knew it meant risking their lives.

3. And They're Particularly Good Finders

Newt Scamander proves this to us in "Fantastic Beasts" and his magi-zoology skills. Besides chasing down a niffler throughout the entire story, he managed to keep track of and take care of several magical creatures. The same correlation can be made with many scenes throughout the "Harry Potter" series.

4. Their Mascot Is a Badger

Yes, a badger. It might as well be a honey badger though because of their spirit level. Regardless, it's pretty dang cool.

5. The Hufflepuff House Includes Some Cool People

This list includes just some of the well-known individuals: Cedric Diggory, Pamona Sprout, Helga Hufflepuff (founder), Nymphadora Tonx, Fat Friar (the house ghost who is quite a character), Newt Scamander, Eddie Redmayne (yes, both), Hannah Abbott (Neville's wife), Teddy Lupin (Son of Nymphadora and Remus), Rupert Grint, and Matthew Lewis just to name a few.

6. There's A Coalition For Better Treatment Of Hufflepuffs

Yes, this is a thing. Eddie Redmayne, a Hufflepuff himself, is a spokesperson for this coalition. You can watch his little speaking gig regarding the matter in the video above! You go, Eddie!

7. JK Rowling Believes Hufflepuffs Have Great Spirit

JK Rowling herself believes that Hufflepuffs are awesome and are genuine people,. She states “In many, many ways, Hufflepuff if my favourite house.” on the matter followed by what her daughter believes on the matter: “I think we should all want to be Hufflepuffs.”

Enough said.

8. They're Accepting Of All

And I mean it. Most Hufflepuffs are open-minded and accept everyone into their hearts, no matter the scenario. They are noble and this is one of the many reasons why they make such a wonderful friend.

So don't be hesitant about those Hufflepuffs, go friend one today! And if you call within the next few minutes, we'll throw Eddie Redmayne in the deal! (Kidding....although wouldn't that be nice?)

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

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.
