Princesses Don't Need Princes To Save Them
Start writing a post

The single life isn't always the easy life, especially when you're dreaming of your prince charming.

Alone. Sad. Probably watching all your taken girlfriends' Snapchat stories of their boyfriends. Probably eating ice cream and preaching to your other single girlfriends how "happy" you truly are, and how "men ain't sh*t." You're also probably saying "forever alone" a lot and talking about how many cats you're going to have in the future.

Yeah, being single isn't the best feeling in the world. But, it doesn't have to be the worst either.

Being single is crucial. For yourself, and for any other potential future relationships. You've probably heard this phrase a million times before, but it still reigns true: you can't love someone else until you've learned to love yourself.

I believe it. Though, that isn't to say you can't love someone else and still have your insecurities. I know I still struggle with that sometimes.

What I'm more leaning towards here is that it's important you learn to be alone. Happy, secure, and alone first. Being single is the best time to explore that side of you.

On top of that, you get to discover what you like and don't like in your significant other, as well as what you'd like in a relationship. It's overall just a great time to learn more about yourself.

I know far too many girls who can't cope with just being alone. With just being single. It breaks my heart, and I'm thankful that that's never been my case.

But ladies, listen: y'all are princesses. Each and every one of you. You don't need a man. You don't need your so-called "Prince Charming" to sweep you off your feet and rescue you from a fire-breathing dragon.

You can save yourself.

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.

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.
