Forget The Guys, Your Girl-Gang Is Your End Game

I'll always be grateful for the ladies in my life.

In life, we go through so many different stages. We have those years in elementary that we play every sport known to man, those years in middle school that we're convinced we'll become movie stars, then high school comes around and we experience that first real heartbreak. These times are all so different yet they all have something in common. The people you surround yourself with. I am a firm believer in "girl power". I think that it's important for girls to stick together and build each other up. Your girl gang is your end game and I am so grateful for mine.

I have all different types of gal pals inside and outside of school. For this article, I'm specifically talking about the ones that have been there since the start. We all kind of came together during the most awkward parts of our lives. We were all about to be done with elementary school, the time when the most exciting thing was deciding what color rubber bands to get next on our braces. Life was pretty simple. We were all so different, we still are, but for some reason, we clicked.

We did basically everything together. We would even trick the guidance counselors into putting us into the same classes. From taking embarrassing pictures of each other to attending our first homecoming, we did it all together. It's crazy to think about how much we've grown yet the one thing that has remained constant was us being close. If one of us was going through something, we were all going through it. It was just the kind of friendship we had.

There's just something special about the people that you grew up with. Those people that know absolutely everything about you. We were there for all of each other's firsts. Going through high school without them would just have not been the same. This doesn't mean it was always easy like I said before, we all are so different. Sometimes, we would pull shit that each other wouldn't like. The hardships were there and they were real. We all made our fair share of mistakes. The one who invested all her time in the wrong person, the girl that went for the boy that was frankly just bad news, and the one who struggled to hold down a job. We had our baggage but we got through it with a little help from one another.

In life, we will encounter so many people that will touch us in different ways. It is cliche to say, but boys come and go, your girls stick around forever. Though we will all go down different paths in life, I have the utmost confidence that we will stay friends forever. It is hard to find the people that you now that you could count on for anything and have those people stay around for this long. I believe that our loyalty to each other speaks volumes - my girl gang is my end game.

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.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
