10 Reasons Why You Need Crocs In Your Life

I don't understand why you haven't bought a pair yet.

Crocs have the perception of being the world's ugliest shoe, or sometimes you hear wearing them is "social suicide". Well, I'm here to tell you everything you've heard is wrong.

1. They go with everything

Personally, after finding the perfect outfit to wear to class, I struggle finding the right shoe to wear. I think about all the walking I'm going to have to do and I always grab my Crocs. Whether I'm wearing jeans, yoga pants or even sweatpants, Crocs are always my go-to. I mean, look at these people, doesn't look like social suicide to me. Looks pretty damn good.

2. They're extremely comfortable

If you ask anyone who owns a pair of Crocs, I guarantee you they'll tell you how comfortable these shoes are. It's like walking on memory foam or a cloud, whatever anaolgy you want to use.

3. The color range is fantastic

When you go to most sites to shop, there's a color list. Crocs gives you a color wheel. A FLIPPIN' wheel. Not to mention the bunch of patterns you can choose from like, zebra, leapord, camo, and more.

4. They come with their own accessories

Don't even get my started on the little accessories that can be added to every pair of Crocs, called Jibbitz. They're like little pins that bring out your inner child. Decorate your shoes with Disney princesses or even Star Wars.

Yes, you can get Mater on your shoe.

5. They'll be your best friend in college

This may be my own personally opinion and I may be biased, but with all the walking I do on college campus, these shoes are the best purchase I've ever made. They never leave my feet smelling like death or in pain, which I think is pretty amazing.

6. They can be worn all year round

I personally would wear my classic Crocs all year round but some people may not like that idea. That's why you should know they make a variety of different styles like sandals, wedges, boots and even FLEECE lined ones. Yes I said fleece.

7. You don't have to be an adult to wear them

Maybe it's just a girl thing, but I hated that I couldn't wear my mom's 5 inch stiletto heels when I was a kid, but with Crocs that's not a problem and my dreams aren't crushed.

8. They're a unisex shoe

This life-changing experience doesn't have to be just for girls. Guys, if you want to lounge in your sweats all day, throw some Crocs on. Heck, they even make boots that don't empty out our pockets and make your feet stink, so doesn't hurt giving it a shot.

9. They give back to their community

Crocs created Crocs Cares, which has donated over 3 million pairs of shoes to people in need around the world.

10. They can be worn in water

Nothing grinds my gears more than when I go to the beach and have to take off my shoes, that just get covered in sand anyways. An added plus to Crocs is they can be worn in water.

Most of this shocking and extremely awesome information was found on the Crocs website, where you should go because I know after reading this, you really want a pair.

Trust Me, Boys, My Sparkly Eyeshadow Has Nothing To Do With You

If you really thought that I spent time putting make-up on just you'd think I was pretty, you thought wrong.


A couple of days ago, I was having a conversation with a friend about a tv show that we both share an interest in. I made a comment about how I thought one of the actresses was beyond gorgeous. The friend I was talking to proceeded to say "I think she was much prettier before she got botox. Now, she just looks plastic and gross."

I had to take both a physical and mental pause. What my friend said really stroke a chord in me. Maybe it was because of the way he said it. He said it as if her appearance was an insult to him and that his opinion of her should be the only one that matters.

Women are constantly told how they should look in the form of how they should do their hair, what clothes they should wear, how they do their make-up, how much they should weigh, etc. But then if a woman does something to keep up with those standards that are placed on her, she's ridiculed even further. Honestly, we just can't win.

Most of this criticism comes from a man's opinion. I can't tell you how many times I've seen an article or just some random guy saying "girls, we don't really care if you wear make-up. To be honest, we kind of hate it." They say it in a way where they expected me to just drop the eyeliner from my hand, wipe the sweat off my brow, and be like "oh, thank God. I don't have to do that anymore."

But, I want to let guys in on a little secret, mostly because I'm sick of men and their ego trips. I'm tired of them thinking that we take care of our skin, or buy cute clothes, or do anything that has anything to do with their opinion on us.

Spoiler Alert: Most girls don't do anything to their appearance for men or to please someone else, they do it for themselves.

Whether a girl decides to wear a lot of make-up or whether she decides to keep it natural, she's not making that decision based on what a guy thinks about her. She is making that decision based on what she feels or she thinks. If she feels that she looks the best in bright red lipstick, blue and green eyeshadow, and a contour, she's going to wear exactly that. Or, maybe she just finds make-up fun and likes to experiment. If a girl decides that she wants to get a tan, it's because she feels like she looks better tan. If a girl decides that she wants Botox, it's because she wants to fix something that she may be insecure about or that she doesn't like about herself.

It. almost. never. has. anything. to. do. what. a. man. thinks.

It's 2019. We need to stop acting like a woman's only purpose is to be pleasing for a man to look at. Or, that she has to fit certain standards. Let us live. Let us do what makes us happy. If you don't like it, don't look at us. It's really not going to make a difference, because our confidence and our love for ourselves has zero to do with anyone else's opinion.
