Start writing a post

It's officially the holiday season and if you're like me, you LOVE listening to music. Here're some of my favorite Christmas songs both classic and newer.

“Last Christmas” - WHAM! / Cover by Glee Cast

Ever since I heard this song back in 5th grade, I've loved it, making it my FAVORITE Christmas song.

Favorite lyrics: "Last Christmas, I gave you my heart. But the very next day you gave it away. This year, to save me from tears. I'll give it to someone special."

“This Christmas” - Donny Hathaway

This song isn't like the typical sleigh ride, mistletoe song.

Favorite lyrics: "And this Christmas, will be a very special Christmas, for me."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pj1mVUEHeUE

“All Alone on Christmas” - Darlene Love

I LOVE this song, despite it being a song about being alone on the holiday. From the lyrics, to the beat, to Darlene Love's voice, I listen to it all holiday season.

Favorite lyrics: "I've got to know, Where do lonely hearts go, Because nobody ought to be all alone on Christmas"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbNFVSRET2c

“I’ll Be Home” - Meghan Trainor

I heard this song a few years ago on a Spotify Christmas playlist, and I sing the chorus at the top of my lungs because it's just that good.

Favorite lyrics: "I promise, I promise I'll be home. Home, I'll be home

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2P8RU_dHyi4

“Feliz Navidad” - Jose Feliciano

This song is a CLASSIC, that my brother would appreciate because he has loved this song for years. Not to mention it's so freaking catchy!

Favorite lyrics: "I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart."

All of Pentatonix’s Songs

They make instrument noises with their voices, kudos to them!!

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" - Burl Ives

Rudolph has always been one of my favorite childhood Christmas movies, besides Frosty the Snowman, both tell such cute stories both through the movies and the songs.

Favorite lyrics: "Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say, "Rudolph, with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXlU2uL1e3Y

“Step Into Christmas” - Elton John

I first heard this song on 98.1 WOGL and since then, I make sure to listen to it every Christmas season.

Favorite lyrics: "Step into Christmas, let's join together. We can watch the snow fall forever and ever. Eat, drink and be merry, come along with me. Step into Christmas, the admission's free.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2Tc_VAb4HE

“Mistletoe" - Justin Bieber

I may not be the biggest JB fan, but this song could melt any girl's heart.

Favorite lyrics: "It's the most beautiful time of the year. Lights fill the streets, spreadin' so much cheer."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUjn3RpkcKY

“Santa Tell Me” - Ariana Grande

I'm not an Ariana Grande fan either, but her voice is like no other especially singing Christmas songs so I just had to include her.

Favorite lyrics: "Santa tell me if you're really there. Don't make me fall in love again if he won't be here next year. Santa tell me if he really cares 'cause I can give it all away if he won't be here next year."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlR0MkrRklg

“Jingle Bell Rock” - Bobby Helms

I'll never forget, my grandfather bought my brothers and me a dancing Santa that shakes his hips to this song, we call him "Shaking Butt Santa."

Favorite lyrics: "What a bright time, it's the right time, to rock the night away. Jingle bell time is a swell time, to go gliding in a one-horse sleigh."

“Dominick the Donkey” - Lou Monte

Every day during December of my senior year in high school, 98.1 WOGL would play this song at exactly 7:00 a.m. At that time I would be driving myself and my younger brother to school and I sang along to every word in the car.

Favorite lyrics: "Santa's got a little friend, his name is Dominick, the cutest little donkey, you never see him kick"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca5wXojemRM

“Do They Know It’s Christmas” - Band Aid

There's no particular reason that this is one of my favorites other than I like the lyrics.

Favorite lyrics: "Throw your arms around the world, at Christmas time."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RGz3vdJg00

“Winter Wonderland” - Michael Buble

Any song he sings sounds so calming, yes even Christmas songs!

Favorite lyrics: "A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight. Walking in a winter wonderland."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIKt5p3UmXg

“White Christmas/Blue Christmas” - Elvis Presley

Elvis may be the king of rock and roll, but his Christmas album screams king of Christmas with his dreamy voice.

Favorite lyrics: "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know. Where the treetops glisten and children listen, to hear sleigh bells in the snow"

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

5325

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.

442

I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

5646
Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".

4191

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
