10 Reasons To Buy A Cute One-Piece Bathing Suit Instead Of Starving Yourself For A 'Beach Body'

You can have the best of both worlds: eat and feel good!


We all have those days when we wear a bikini and feel fat or pudgy. We hate that we have rolls when we sit down and how our stomach expands when we eat. However, even though these are all normal functions of the body, there is a solution to all your worries and problems.

ONE-PIECE BATHING SUITS! One piece bating suits are the new "in". I know you may be tempted to go on a diet for the summer or eat very minimal to nothing because you think it will get you that skinny summer body you want, but why make yourself miserable when you can get yourself a cute one-piece and...

1. You'll look better.

One pieces form to your body making you look super curvy which is what a lot of people are going for these days and make you look "skinnier" anyway.

2. You'll feel better.


Trying to keep up with a diet or being constantly hungry is very frustrating and annoying. You'll always feel empty and have to deal with constant fatigue, headaches, and nausea.

3. You'll save yourself from binging.


At some point in time, you will give into these foods that you dare not to eat because you think it will make you "fat", and ironically will probably gain more weight, be sad, and not want to enjoy a day out at the beach, pool, etc.

4. You won't have unnecessary mood swings.

Being hungry is not fun, and neither is having to deal with someone who is. I know when I'm hungry I get VERY moody and irritated with everyone and everything. So, please save yourself, and keep your emotions stabilized.

5. You'll have more confidence in yourself.

This one might sound a little off but it's true. People who wear one piece bathing suits are usually more confident than if they were to wear a two piece. Even though you feel like you shouldn't eat or eat very minimal because you'll "look skinnier" (which is completely false), you will be constantly thinking about how you look and it will end up never being enough. You will never be satisfied.

6. You won't be constantly thinking about food.


Yes, you will be constantly thinking about food because…...YOU ARE NOT GIVING IT TO YOUR BODY WHEN YOUR BODY IS NEEDING IT.

7. You'll feel more confident to eat in a swimsuit.


Too often were concerned our stomach looks fat or poochy in a bikini when we sit down or eat. With a one piece that has a cute pattern or style, you can't even tell if you get that natural pudge sitting down. You'll actually look stylish sitting there eating some yummy fruit and salad!

8. You'll be trendy/fashionable.

I don't know if you've noticed, but one piece bathing suits are the new trend nowadays. Everyone is rocking them, and more companies are selling a lot of them. So why waste your time killing for that unhealthy starved beach body when you can be a trendy, curvy, happy woman?!

9.  You won't be constantly thinking about bathing suit mishaps.

In bikinis, it can be very easy for a nip-slip or for bottoms to ride up or come completely off. With a one piece, you're mind is more at ease, knowing you won't have a bathing suit mishap as easily.

10. You'll feel much healthier.


Wearing a bathing suit will help you boost your mindset with self-confidence, your emotions by decreasing mood swings, and physically by fueling your body with food. When you improve yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically you will feel better than you ever have. Feeling better can only help you feel more positive about yourself. So stay positive this summer and get yourself a stylish one piece instead of starving yourself.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.

From One Nerd To Another

My contemplation of the complexities between different forms of art.


Aside from reading Guy Harrison's guide to eliminating scientific ignorance called, "At Least Know This: Essential Science to Enhance Your Life" and, "The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer" by Charles Graeber, an informative and emotional historical account explaining the potential use of our own immune systems to cure cancer, I read articles and worked on my own writing in order to keep learning while enjoying my winter break back in December. I also took a trip to the Guggenheim Museum.

I wish I was artistic. Generally, I walk through museums in awe of what artists can do. The colors and dainty details simultaneously inspire me and remind me of what little talent I posses holding a paintbrush. Walking through the Guggenheim was no exception. Most of the pieces are done by Hilma af Klint, a 20th-century Swedish artist expressing her beliefs and curiosity about the universe through her abstract painting. I was mostly at the exhibit to appease my mom (a K - 8th-grade art teacher), but as we continued to look at each piece and read their descriptions, I slowly began to appreciate them and their underlying meanings.

I like writing that integrates symbols, double meanings, and metaphors into its message because I think that the best works of art are the ones that have to be sought after. If the writer simply tells you exactly what they were thinking and how their words should be interpreted, there's no room for imagination. An unpopular opinion in high school was that reading "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne was fun. Well, I thought it was. At the beginning of the book, there's a scene where Hawthorne describes a wild rosebush that sits just outside of the community prison. As you read, you are free to decide whether it's an image of morality, the last taste of freedom and natural beauty for criminals walking toward their doom, or a symbol of the relationship between the Puritans with their prison-like expectations and Hester, the main character, who blossoms into herself throughout the novel. Whichever one you think it is doesn't matter, the point is that the rosebush can symbolize whatever you want it to. It's the same with paintings - they can be interpreted however you want them to be.

As we walked through the building, its spiral design leading us further and further upwards, we were able to catch glimpses of af Klint's life through the strokes of her brush. My favorite of her collections was one titled, "Evolution." As a science nerd myself, the idea that the story of our existence was being incorporated into art intrigued me. One piece represented the eras of geological time through her use of spirals and snails colored abstractly. She clued you into the story she was telling by using different colors and tones to represent different periods. It felt like reading "The Scarlet Letter" and my biology textbook at the same time. Maybe that sounds like the worst thing ever, but to me it was heaven. Art isn't just art and science isn't just science. Aspects of different studies coexist and join together to form something amazing that will speak to even the most untalented patron walking through the museum halls.
