11 Reasons Why Blair Waldorf Is A Good Role Model

11 Reasons Why Blair Waldorf Is A Good Role Model

"You deserve someone who would move mountains for you if he had to."

Sooner or later, we all become enthralled in the world of "Gossip Girl." We imagine life on the upper east side, refreshing our palettes with fruity yogurt on the Met steps and hailing taxis for escort to our pretentious parties. The world is alluring, but what is even more alluring are the people, especially one Blair Waldorf. Although fictional, any woman can take pointers from the "dictator of taste" with her fabulous fashion, witty language and driven personality. This is why Blair Waldorf is a good role model.

1. She dresses for success.

Blair finds the perfect middle ground between sexy and serious. She is never provocative, nor prudent with her timeless fashion.

2. She is well spoken.

Blair is never at a loss for words, whether it's putting bratty high schoolers in their place or telling her man how it is. She says it eloquently, sternly and with just a sprinkle of sass.

3. She is cultured.

Blair is well versed in not only languages, but in culture too. She can talk Monet with the best of them.

4. She's strong.

She is Queen B after all! Feared by many, loved by those who matter and doesn't need a man to know who she is.

5. She is a trend setter.

Who doesn't love peonies and macaroons because of Blair?

6. She is the better half of a formidable power couple.

No prince of Monaco was good enough for Blair. She knows her self worth and found the perfect king to help her rule over the upper east side.

7. She's successful.

No matter what obstacle Blair encounters, she overcomes it. Sometimes her ways aren't the most ethical, but she manages to find her way down the straight and narrow in her Prada heels.

8. She's a tough love kind of friend.

Blair tells her friends like it is, which keeps them out of trouble. And let's not forget how she takes up for her own, talk about loyalty.

9. She's smart.

How else would she come up with her elaborate schemes and profound advice?

10. She knows what she wants.

And she takes it.

11. She's not perfect.

She makes her fair share of mistakes, but like us, she learns from them and grows to be a better person. Blair doesn't have life figured out and is no cookie cutter angel. She's raw. She's real. She's Blair Waldorf – an ideal role model.

If Taylor Swift Songs Were Types Of Alcohol

Because what's better than a drink and some T-Swift?

With Taylor Swift's quick return to the music scene... and in a big way, might I add, I decided to associate some of the best Taylor Swift songs with alcohol.

I mean, who wouldn't want to drink to Taylor Swift's catchy melodies and perfect choruses to get over an ex or tell someone exactly how you feel about them?

Taylor Swift has been around for a decade at this point, and let's face it, pretty much all of her songs could go along with at least one type of alcohol.

1. "Welcome To New York" - Moscow Mule

It only makes sense. Visit the Big Apple and you have to indulge in the state's signature cocktail. Moscow mules are a New York classic, and if it's your first night in the city and you haven't bought yourself one, are you even in New York?

2. "Blank Space" - Everclear

Think about it... A night of drinking Everclear will leave you with a giant blank space the next day. You might also look like Taylor did in the music video.

3. "Tim McGraw" - Beer

Tim McGraw is a throwback to Taylor's high school love. What better way to reminisce than with a couple friends and a keg of your favorite cheap beer?

4. "Style" - Cristal Champagne

What's more stylish than with a glass of the most expensive bubbly you can find? Just like Taylor Swift, Cristal will never go out of style.

5. "Shake It Off" - Martini

Get it? Cause you shake a martini? I might be the only one who thinks that's funny but you might end up dancing a little bit with a martini in hand when "Shake It Off" come on the radio.

6. "Red" - Merlot

Red has to go along with a red wine. What else could go along with yet *another* T-Swift breakup song?

7. "22" - Margaritas

Let's face it, when you're 22, you really only drink margaritas. They're fun- and all the hipsters are probably drinking them too.

8. "Teardrops On My Guitar" - Southern Comfort

When your heart is broken, who are you going to turn to besides the only alcohol that gives you comfort...Southern Comfort that is.

9. "I Knew You Were Trouble" - Fireball

I can't say I've ever met anyone who spent a night with Fireball and didn't regret it the next morning.

10. "Look What You Mad Me Do" - Tequila

T-Swift's latest single is an angry one. What better to make you angry than tequila? Taylor basically just called out everyone who had ever talked about her behind her back and she did it in true Taylor fashion-by writing a song. She was probably drunk on tequila when she wrote it too.

11. ...Ready For It? - Bottomless Mimosas

Because it's just that good.

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.


Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
