Dear Millennials, Please Add Ed Sheeran's Concert To Your Bucket List

Dear Millennials, Please Add Ed Sheeran's Concert To Your Bucket List

Ed Sheeran's divide concert was amazing.

One of my favorite artists to see perform in person is Ed Sheeran. So naturally, last year when he came back on the radar and announced his Divide tour, I jumped in the opportunity to see him again and bought tickets he second they went on sale.

Accompanying Ed on tour was James Blunt, another British acoustic- type singer. James' set was a great way to open an Ed Sheeran show; he was lively while talking to the audience, and even though I didn't know much of his music, I was also impressed by his vocals. I was pleased to be introduced to a new artist to add to my playlist. It was a surprise when James announced he'd be coming out to meet fans and take pictures, but I was one of the lucky ones that took one with him; another picture to add to my collage on my dorm wall!

Ed of course, took the stage by storm with the audience screaming for him before he even strummed the first note of his guitar. It never fails to amaze me how great of an entertainer and performer he is; with no one aside from himself, and no props besides his guitar(s) and loop petal- his favorite to.

He- like James- was also great with interacting with the audience; telling us stories, splitting the arena down the middle to have us harmonize on some of his songs, and throwing a Tampa Bay Lightning jersey- personalized with his name on the back- into the audience. All in all, it was an amazing show, and I have no doubts that I will continue to see him each time he comes to Tampa for years. I also hope to be able to meet him some day!

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
