It is no secret that a girl loves her some glowing skin. And of course, I wish all my queens nothing but the same love. Here are a few major keys (Khaled Voice) I have found helpful to living my best hair/skin life-thank me later. (I'm not a beauty guru or hair expert, I'm just a girl, don't @ me)

#1: We all love a good face mask and some Grey's Anatomy on a Sunday night, but here's something I've had to learn the hard way. DO NOT PUT TOO MANY PRODUCTS ON YOUR SKIN. Find one or two products that work for your skin type. If you use these products daily make sure you take days in between care to give your skin a break. I have tried everything from Proactive to Neutrogena and I can honestly say my skin treats me best when I use no products at all. You would be surprised at how far a good old washcloth and warm water can get you.

#2: If you have oily skin like me, make sure to grab yourself some type of an astringent. Which hazel, for example, removes deep grime and oil from your skin and is truly the best way to cleanse.

#3: Girls- I cannot stress the importance of TAKING OFF YOUR MAKEUP/CLEANSING YOUR SKIN BEFORE BED. You really want to get all the product off of your face so your skin isn't soaking in it overnight. I've tested every expensive makeup remover there is and I have found a simple, effective favorite for removing my makeup...baby wipes! That's right, baby wipes. I use sensitive skin wipes so I know they will not irritate my skin, plus they are like 2$ if you're ballin' on a budget.

#4: I know this sounds cliche but DRINK YOUR WATER LADIES! This is a superrrr important step to skin that glows. I've done trials where I didn't drink as much water for a week and then drank a gallon a day for a week and there was instantly a MAJOR difference. Try it for yourself and see.

#5: Although I love me some Shea Moisture hair products, store bought black soap is NOT organic African black soap. I'll just leave this here.

#6: FIND OUT WHAT FOODS CAUSE YOUR SKIN TO REACT, and try to cut those foods out of your diet. For some people, it's soda or chocolate, for some people its gluten. Learn your skin, and when you figure out what it needs to show it a little extra love! Your skin will be good to you as long as you are good to it!

May your month of march be full of mula, marvelous memories and mad good skin, happy glowing gals!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
