For anyone else who owns 90% black clothing, has a slight fear of bright colors, and wears a grout fit at least two days a week, spring it not our time to thrive.

I'm not a huge fan of color and I will stay wearing black and white until the day I die.

That's all good and fine for the cold, dreary winter months. However, with springtime comes a little bit more leniency when it comes to wearing some color.

So to anyone who's struggling to add a little pop of color to their wardrobe this spring, this one's for you.

Blue might not be a particularly "bright springy color" but it strays from basic black and white. If you're like me and not a huge fan of wearing color, starting out with navy blue might make that transition a little easier. Rompers are one of my favorite things to wear because they make any outfit look super put together with little to no effort. Pair a summer romper with a long sleeve shirt underneath or opt for a longer jumpsuit; whatever fits the weather!

Stripes are another trend I predict will be huge for the spring and summer. Whether they're on a romper, jumpsuit, or an off the shoulder top, stripes are a great way to add texture to an outfit.

For those of you who are really looking to stand out, now's the time to do it.

Orange has actually become one of my favorite colors to wear, especially around the spring and summer.

Bright colors are always popular around this time and that's not likely to change anytime soon. Shades of yellow, orange and pink are the perfect colors for the season. And what screams springtime more than floral print?

Finally, red. The one actual color that I will gladly wear all four seasons.

Red is a great accent color, looks good on everyone, and can add a little something to a basic black and white outfit.

And as I said before, stripes and other patterns are definitely coming back into style and I'm not complaining.

Most stores are finally releasing their spring and summer clothing so ditch that black winter coat and go find yourself something colorful!!

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
