10 Fantastic Fictional Females

10 Fantastic Fictional Females

A few TV show ladies that you need to know!


TV shows are full of amazing women who you should watch out for. Whether you like sword-wielding/gun-toting ladies, techno geeks, super-powered females, or intelligent women, you can't deny these lovely ladies are truly fantastic. SPOILER ALERT!

1. Felicity Smoak

The heart of CW's Arrow, Felicity is a genius when it comes to computers. She is known by everyone as the greatest hacker in the world. She also keeps the groups of vigilantes honest and makes sure they all feel loved, even when they feel like they don't deserve it.

2. Buffy Summers

The title character in the TV classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Buffy is the leader of the 'scooby gang.' They are a mix of humans, witches, vampires, and ex-demons who make it their business to keep the forces of evil at bay. Without Buffy (her leadership, friendship, and butt-kicking skills included) the gang would be at a loss.

3. Lexa (The 100)

Lexa is the commander of the 12 clans, which she united to fight Mount Weather. In this post-apocalyptic world Lexa is shown as an impressive leader who understands the word sacrifice. She is faced with impossible choices, which she handles to the best of her ability. When asked to choose between her love and her people she will choose her people. This just shows how much of a true leader Lexa is. The writers of the show really made a mistake killing off her character and the fan outrage proves that. #LexaDeservedBetter

4. Peggy Carter

Agent Carter proves that Peggy was not just Captain America's love interest. Peggy Cater is so much more than a leading lady, and the way she solves crimes that all her fellow agents fail to even come close to figuring out proves it.

5. Regina Mills

Ex-Evil Queen and mayor of Storybrooke, Regina Mills's story arc is one for the books. She has overcome so much pain, torment, and guilt in her life that it is amazing that she can do anything. An amazing mother, reformed witch, and an awesome cook, Regina Mills can do it all.

6. Xena

Who could forget the warrior princess herself. Xena, and her equally amazing soul-mate Gabrielle, took on gods, goddesses, giants, warlords, even Julius Caesar. This classic show is definitely worth the time just to see Xena kick everyone from Greek mythology's (and even a few others) butts.

7. Jessica Jones

This super strong private investigator is not to be messed with. Jessica is a former superhero who suffers from PTSD. She is protective of her friends and has a hilarious sense of dry humor. This show is on the darker side dealing with things like rape and assault, so be warned if you are sensitive to those kinds of topics.

8. Sameen Shaw (Person of Interest)

Sameen Shaw is a no-nonsense part of the team of people who help save the people the U.S. government deemed irrelevant. She is deadly with a gun and someone you do not want as an enemy. She has an axis II personality disorder and, in the show, describes herself as a sociopath.

9. Alex Danvers

The foster sister to Supergirl and D.E.O. agent, this women proves that you don't need superpowers to be a hero. She is protective of her sister and has shown that she is loyal to those she cares about.

10. Meredith Grey

The head of general surgery on the hit show Grey's Anatomy, Meredith is a bad-ass in and out of the operating room. In addition to being an amazing surgeon, she is a widowed mother of three beautiful children, a reluctant but caring sister, and a true friend to those who take the time to kick down her walls.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

Since then, I had the luxury of being able to witness her evolution from the faithful companion I went to my first job fair with to the woman who is now a pioneer in destigmatizing the portrayal of women's reproductive health.
