Unleash your inner badass.

Every woman has a time in her life where she feels lost and alone in the world. You are struggling to find your place in the world, and things seem to be going wrong at every turn. These last few months for myself have been trying, I've gained weight, fallen out of love with myself, and just all around have been having an awful time. I'm in the process of finding myself again, slowly but surely with the help of some books, and embracing my inner self. Female empowerment is something every girl should embrace, I was taught from a young age to never have to rely on a man. It is not about thinking men are the scum of the Earth, or hating their guts, it is about being strong, confident, and independent women.

In today's world, there is female empowerment everywhere you look at books, movies, TV, and music. All women are embracing their female power, and showing other people that it is okay to be proud to be a powerful confident female. Examples include the rapper Lizzo, who is all about female empowerment with her truth blaring lyrics in songs like "Tempo (feat. Missy Elliott)," and "Like A Girl," off her latest album Truth Hurts. Other music female empowerment icons include Miley Cyrus with her latest album entitled "She Is Coming," with powerful lyrics like "don't fuck with my freedom" in "Mother's Daughter." Miley is all about women embracing who they are as women, she shows it in wild ways, but the message comes across very clearly. Neither of these women apologize for who they are and for what they have to say.

There are many books today detailing how women should embrace their inner goddess. I personally have two books like this, "Evolution of Goddess: A Modern Girl's Guide to Activating Your Feminine Superpowers" by Emma Mildon and "The Spirit Almanac: A Modern Guide to Ancient Self-Care" by Emma Loewe and Lindsay Kellner. These two had everything laid out in a clear and organized manner for women to understand and follow. These have helped me rethink my own version of self-care, I have always loved crystals and the changing of seasons. These books help you acknowledge the changes that go on in life and offer ways to help recognize them in ways that are beneficial to you, without causing yourself any unnecessary stress.

Women need women's empowerment in the world we live in today. Where everyone is at each other's throats, politics take priority over everything, and everyone is only looking out for themselves. People are always wondering what the world can do for ME, not a group, but what can the world do for ME as an individual. Having a strong group of women at your back to reassure you that everything is alright and that you are not alone in the world, is important in today's society. Always remember that you are stronger than you think, and you hold more power than you give yourself credit for. You, as a woman, hold more power and more cards in your hand than you think you do.

Women's empowerment is everywhere you look if you need reassurance after a tough day, you can find it in your friends, music, books, everywhere you look. I am here and so are many other women who have your back through it all.

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.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

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.

HBO

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.

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.
