They were all pretty badass!

Disney Princesses are the best. They are all warriors in their own way and they give inspiring tales! As years have progressed more feminism has been shown in their movies. So here are the Disney Princesses ranked by their feminism and feminine strength!

1. Aurora

Giphy

I actually love Aurora but she always listened to everyone else's orders until she met a man. She grew up her whole life being ordered around and showed little to no restraint on it.

2. Snow White

Giphy

Compared to the other princesses, she is more compelled to do what others want her to do. She doesn't necessarily have a dream.

3. Cinderella

Giphy

She is a bit more strong because she overcame the life she had. However, her dream was to get married and that was all she did.

4. Jasmine

Giphy

She is more of a supporting character. In the movie, Aladdin is facing more of the obstacles. She is however strong because she went against her arranged marriage. Plus she had a whole tiger as a pet!!

5. Belle

Giphy

She is strong because the whole town saw her as an outcast and weird. She never let that changer her or defy who she was. But she still let herself be a prisoner, even though it was to save her dad. She was still strong and changed the 'beast'.

6. Ariel 

Giphy

This one was a little tricky because Ariel is a strong character. However, she is also pretty dumb. She changed her whole species for a man and didn't even talk to him. She did not think of the consequences with her family either. Prince Eric is pretty hot though so I somewhat understand!

7. Pocahontas

Giphy

First off let me say that she is GORGEOUS! She is strong because she tried to unite her tribe and the new settlers. She wanted to end the fighting between them. But she did fall in love with the enemy. She trusted the foreigners which turned out to eventually not be a good thing. She trusted on love for John Smith.

8. Rapunzel 

Giphy

Rapunzel is a bit more strong because she was not as easily trusting as the other princesses. She immediately defended herself against Flynn. That frying pan tho! She was innocent though because she had never left the tower and before now she never tried to.

9. Merida

Giphy

This one was hard too! Merida defied gender roles and defended herself against all the things her parents wanted her to do. Plus I just love her accent. Even though she did defend herself, she did do something hasty based on raw emotion. Which made it bad for her mom. She in a way only thought of herself and did not care about the kingdom.

Giphy

Tiana was is most ways a strong woman. The time period that the movie was in, everything was controlled by men. She however was the breadwinner of her household. She had 2 jobs and she was saving money for her own business. However, it was not really her dream but more so her late father's dream. She worked towards that and not once did she do anything for herself.

11. Mulan

Giphy

It is obvious Mulan is high up on the list. She literally eludes feminine strength. She changed her gender and fought in a war just so her father would not have to. She also proved she was just as strong, if not more, than the other soldiers.

12. Elsa

Giphy

So I know she is a queen but the coronation was the same day so I am going to consider her the official princess. Elsa was so unbelievably strong. She kept her powers hidden for years to protect everyone else. She also was willing to take over the kingdom even though she has not been around people for years. Elsa realized that she was her own person and did not let her powers define who she was.

13. Moana!

Giphy

Opposed to Elsa, Moana had no influences that made her want to not save her people. Elsa had a big emotional influence which was Anna and because of that she blindly. Moana did everything she did to feed her people. She was up for the task of being chief and that is why she risked her life for her people. She did not want to knowingly let her people die if there was anything she can do about it. Plus she has no love interest! (Elsa either). And her pig is cute. She was the most realistically figured princess too. And she was a POC!


In conclusion, they are all great princesses but they don't all radiate the same amount of feminism. These were the hardest decisions I have ever had to make!

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
