A Letter To The Ones I'm Leaving Behind

Things I want my loved ones to know before I leave.

A Letter To The Ones I'm Leaving Behind

The thought of leaving for college is becoming real. Moving away from the people I love, and the town I know is scary. I wanted to share some last thoughts before I open the newest and most exciting chapter of my life.

A letter to my mom

Thank you for everything. You have taught me how to be kind and stand my ground. How to help others but think about myself as well. You have supported me through every opportunity you have had the ability to give me. Thank you for being the greatest role model and mother I could have ever asked for.

A letter to my dad

I don't even know where to start. No matter how much I don't like to admit it, I am going to miss the smart ass comments, and the jokes. I know we never agreed on things much, but that was only because we are too much alike. I promise I will proceed to always try to be the best I possibly can, and continue to meet your high expectations that have been making me better since day one.

A letter to my grandparents

You all have given me everything I could possibly ask for. From helping me through school, to giving me every ounce of love and support you have to offer, you have helped me blossom into the person I am today. You have always been a big part of my life, and I do not plan on that ever changing. I could not be more grateful to have you around.

A letter to my sisters

No matter how much we can't stand each other, I love you guys so much. I never realized how much I needed you guys. You are my soccer playing, car ranting, and TikTok making, built in best friends. I'm blessed that COVID's quarantine has brought us closer together. I can't wait for you guys to come hangout and visit.

A letter to my best friends

This is the moment we have all been waiting for. Graduating and going off to college is right around the corner. Even though we are all going in our different directions, know that without a doubt, I will always have your back. I have been friends with you all for longer then I can remember, and our time doesn't stop now. Don't worry, I will have pictures of you guys all over, and no one will be forgotten.

A letter to my boyfriend

I met you in November, and frankly it feels so much longer ago. The moment I spoke to you I knew you would end up being an important person in my life. Little did I know that I would fall this hard for you. Our relationship has been built on trust and honesty since day one, and I have no doubt that we will be able to handle the changes coming soon.

These are more or less a goodbye, but more of a, I will miss you and see you soon. Going off, and leaving your roots is a difficult thing to do, but the best thing to remember is they are just one phone call away.

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.
