13 Questions Basic Girls Hear Everyday

5. You want to watch Mean Girls? Again?


Many people try to insult ladies by telling them that they are being basic, but I give a hair flip and respond with, "Duh." Some will try to change their ways and try to be "normal." I think you should embrace your basic girl power and show the world how wonderful it truly is.

Here are 13 questions basic girls hear everyday, that they seriously can't even listen to anymore:

1. Are you even wearing pants?

Of course not, I choose to go out in public without pants on. No! Even though I choose to wear big t-shirts on a daily bases I still have Nike shorts on underneath. Now this is very basic choice, but you can look around an college campus and lose count on how many ladies you see in two sizes too big t-shirts.

2. Are you drinking another pumpkin spice latte?

You mean PSL? Yes, yes I am, because it is the best drink that sweet baby Jesus has ever created.

3. Let me guess, fall is your favorite season.

Nailed it. There's so many great things that come with this season. Tailgating, pumpkin scented everything, bon fires, cuffing season... the list is never ending.

4. What kind of planner do you have?

There's only one right answer to this, and it's Lilly Pulitzer.

5. You want to watch Mean Girls? Again?

Yes! It's almost October 3rd which is better known as the day Aaron Samuels asked Kady Heron what day it was.

6. What do you mean you can't?

I can't. I just can't even

7. You do all your shopping at Target?

Is this even a basic thing? Where else are you suppose to shop?!

8. Who is Nicholas Sparks?

Are you serious right now? Not only is he the best writer but he has the best movies somewhat based off his books. You know what, we don't need to continue this conversation.

9. What do you want to drink tonight?

Wine. Wine all the way. Yes wine! red wine, pink wine, white wine! I don't care! Give me wine!

10. You still use Pinterest? Like a lot?

Once again, is this a real question? My entire life is planned on Pinterest.

11. Do you want to go to breakfast or lunch?

What about brunch? This is the best meal in the world and pairs great with a mimosa, it's the best of both worlds. Together. In one. Breakfast, lunch, brunch! The greek gods must of come up with this.

12. You know there's 170 calories in a vodka cranberry right?

What are you talking about there's only 60 max, plus its healthy. You know, because of the juice.

13. Did you just wake up? Your hair looks terrible.

Are kidding me? This is the perfect messy bun and took hours to perfect. I don't need your negativity.

I know many of my basics out there can identify where I am coming from and relate too many of these topics. I'm here to tell you to embrace who you really are and appreciate the world you belong too. It's a great and wonderful world. So go out and enjoy your PSL with your Lily planners and baggy t-shirts. That's who you are girl. Own it.

You know you love me, XOXO Basic B*tch

May 25, 2020: the day that will forever be remembered as the day George Floyd lost his life at the hands of cops.

The day that systematic racism again reared its head at full force in 2020.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.

10 Home Items You Need For Stress Relief, On The Days You 'Literally Cannot'

Fill your home with peaceful, calming coping mechanisms.

I'd like to think that 2020 is teaching us a lot. Or will teach us a lot. Or will be a story we tell at parties one day. Ultimately, this year has been — and is probably going to continue to be — a bit of a mess.

At the beginning of the year, Australia was on fire and we mourned the death of Kobe Bryant. Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States. There is an enormous amount of tension, hurt, and change that is upon the American people.
