Winter is Here

A recap of Season 6 episode 10 in honor of the new promo

Winter is Here

Unless you live under a rock, or you hate Game of Thrones, I can almost guarantee that you have seen the new trailer released this past week. I want to take a minute and recap the end of last season, because it was just so long ago.

Seeing as it would take forever to recap all the characters, I'm going to do a quick region- by region recap.

Kings Landing:

- Cersei blows up the Sept killing everyone in it. We finally find out that the "little birds" are children. Tommen commits suicide. After Cersei is crowned Queen, we see Jaime arrive in the throne room, and to say his hatred for Cersei was apparent is an understatement.

- Major character deaths: Pycelle, Lancel Lannister, Margarey, Mace, and Loras Tyrell. Oh, and me.

Frey Party:

- As the Frey's and Lannister's celebrate their victory in Riverrun, we see a sullen Jaime questioning whether the Lannisters needed the Frey support. When we scene back to this ordeal, we see a server bring Walder some pies. Of course, this is the Pie of the Sons, which Walder discovers when he asks the server- none other than Arya Stark- where his sons are.

- Major character deaths: Walder Frey and his sons.


- Sam FINALLY gets into the AWESOME library at the Citadel! Unfortunately, Gilly and baby Sam have to stay in the welcome center.

- Major character deaths: NONE!

The North:

- Davos finds out how Shireen died, forces Melisandre to tell Jon, who then banishes her to the South. Littlefinger tells Sansa that he wants her to sit beside him while he rules from the Iron Throne and that she should lead the North, not Jon. Lady Mormont starts the chant for Jon to be King in the North, and everyone joins in.

-Major Character deaths: NONE!

Further North:

Benjen drops Bran and Meera off close to the wall and says he will continue to do his part for the living North of the Wall. Bran FINALLY continues his vision AND WE LEARN THE JON'S PARENTS ARE LYANNA STARK AND RHAEGAR TARGARYEN!

-Major Character deaths: Still not over Hodor


- Ellaria and Olenna bond over hating Cersei, then Varys shows up. Hopefully, we will see these forces join Daenerys in her conquest of Westeros, though her fleet (YES FLEET) is already quite strong.

-Major Character deaths: The pride of the sand snakes, thank you Olenna.

Meereen/ THE SEA:

- Dany makes Daario stay to rule The Bay of Dragons, then names Tyrion the Hand of the Queen. We FINALLY see her setting sail to Westeros in the epic last scene. We should not forget that Theon and Yara Greyjoy are sailing with her.

-Major character deaths: NO ONE.

In case you missed it, here is the trailer for the new season, airing July 16th, 2017.

50 Iconic Quotes From 'The Golden Girls' That Will Always Make You Laugh

"People waste their time pondering whether a glass is half empty or half full. Me, I just drink whatever's in the glass."


"The Golden Girls" created history when it first premiered in 1985 setting the stage of strong-willed female characters who are aging gracefully with dignity. It is a treasure trove filled with humorous scenes and situations that will always be relevant to watch. I still rejoice in watching these spectacular women embrace life with full stride and the way they always strive to focus on the brighter side of life.

These 4 dynamic and awe-inspiring women taught us that age is indeed nothing more than a number and that we can set out to accomplish anything our heart desires at any time.

To be perfectly honest, I wasn't sure how to write this article.

In the past, I've written about the lies we tell ourselves. I've written about how thoughts can be destructive, how they can have power over who we are.

I Have An Eating Disorder And I Refuse To Let It Kill Me

Even at my lowest, the number on the scale never seemed low enough... but was it ever worth the risk of losing my life?

Trigger warning: This article discusses topics that may be triggering for some readers.

I looked down at my thumb today. I know haven't been eating enough. I told everyone I would get all my vitamins and calories in. I totally wanted to eat more of the guacamole I bought the other day, but I counted what I had eaten and those numbers seemed a little too high. I decided I didn't need the extra helping, so I went to bed and the guacamole went bad.

When pursuing a degree that most deem 'useless' or a 'waste of time' there happens to be a lot of self-doubt and fear, especially with the pending doom of graduation around the corner. I remember when I was about to graduate from college with a Bachelor's in Acting, I was absolutely terrified.

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.
