An Open Letter to My Best Bud

An Open Letter to My Best Bud

To my very best bud,

I'm sure you'll roll your eyes or shake your head in disagreement at this letter, but I promise it's the truth and nothing less.

This year has been nothing short of a near disaster for me, and you have been far more than a blessing in the midst of turmoil. It's not been the easiest for either of us, but this is about you and the things you do for me. There has not been a single moment in the past three hundred and sixty five days that I didn't glance over my shoulder and see you protecting my back, or reach my hand into the darkness only to find you and your guiding light. When I have asked for your support, you showed without hesitation, and you stood stronger than you needed to be as I crumbled at your feet.

Three hundred and sixty five days of no judgement for difficult decisions I needed to make, and a long year of knowing when to nudge me back onto the path you knew I had strayed from. You set an example of the person I strive to be, and have allowed me to change drastically both good and bad with the seasons of emotion without ever expecting me to be any sort of person other than the person I need to be. You always allow my problems to become yours, and I can't stress enough how important you have made me feel in knowing that I am never alone in life.

Thank you for the best worst year of my life. For always agreeing to my outrageous ideas and shenanigans, and for sharing your warming laugh with me day in and day out, even if it's through teary eyes. Thank you for loving me on those days when I was far from reach, and for hugging me a little harder on the days I seemed fine but you knew I wasn't.

This is my thanks to God too, for bringing such a phenomenal woman into my life with the blessing of being a best friend. I confidently believe God knew that I needed you in my life, and God willing, that is where I hope you'll stay for many more great years and laughs.

This letter to you is short in comparison to the words I'd really like to write, but sometimes short and sweet, minute by minute, is the way to go. I pray for another year of greatness for us, but most importantly for you. You deserve far more than this world can give you, but I know how strong and determined you are and you make the best of absolutely anything. I love you bunches bud, and thank you from every piece of my battered heart.

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.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

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.
