Hannah B. Disliked Contestant To A Bachelorette Queen

How Hannah B. Went From Being A Disliked Contestant To A 'Bachelorette' Queen

I wasn't a huge fan of Hannah B. on Colton's season of "The Bachelor". But that all changed when she became the Bachelorette.


I try my best not to really dislike anyone when I watch "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette", besides those "villains" that each season definitely has. It's hard to judge someone's true character when they are on a TV show.

However, it was hard for me to like Hannah B. at first. It wasn't because she was awkward on her first date with Colton, I relate too much to that to be able to judge her for that.

I mainly didn't like how she was tied into the pageant drama with Caelynn. That seemed to be the focus of her entire part on that show because then every moment she was even with Colton became about that. I didn't know whose side to take with the drama, and I got sick of it really fast, so I just wasn't the biggest fan of any of it.

So I wasn't really sure how to feel about Hannah being chosen as the Bachelorette. I didn't hate the idea, I just only knew her from her pageant drama, so I feel like I didn't really get to see her as an individual, so I was curious as to whether or not I would like her.

And man am I glad I tuned in to her season. Hannah, within a few episodes, has turned into one of my favorite Bachelorettes. She is honest about what exactly she wants, and she isn't taking BS from anyone. The minute there's a red flag or an issue, she confronts the situation and the people involved.

She already caught on to Cam and his actions and sent him home, and sent home the guy that had a girlfriend on the first night. My hope is that she catches onto Luke P. and his manipulative behavior, but considering that she just brought them into a room together to figure out what is going on for this week's episode, hopefully, we will get some closure on that drama.

Hannah also is unapologetically herself. She even admitted to not feeling totally herself while on Colton's season of "The Bachelor", but she seems to be embracing it now. She's crazy and emotional, and human.

In the preview for the season, we see Hannah telling someone she doesn't owe them anything. She is also getting upset with someone who seems to be giving her crap about having sex before marriage. I found myself already cheering her on for knowing exactly what she wants, and how she is embracing her decisions and her lifestyle.

Hannah B. is a woman who knows exactly what she deserves and what she is looking for. She is vulnerable, being honest when she isn't feeling totally right or in the best mood.

Plus, it looks like this might be THE MOST DRAMATIC SEASON ever. Maybe Chris Harrison was right about this one. Either way, I'm so excited to keep watching this season. Plus, I already have my favorites, so I'm anxious to see how far they get.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.


To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

Why Thomas Rhett's Wife Is The One You Should Actually Stan

I mean, look what God gave her.


Okay okay, I know, Thomas Rhett is a big-time country star and his music is for sure some of the best of our time, but behind him, there's a girl supporting him who's pretty dang amazing and doesn't get nearly enough credit. Lauren Akins is such a great role model for young girls everywhere, and that is so important in today's time where great role models are hard to come by.

1. She's big on the importance of family.

It's very obvious from her abundance of posts of their adorable family that she's BIG on the importance of family. In a world where this importance is beginning to lack, it's so important to have people with big influences like her to keep that alive. She also highlights a sweet marriage that truly embodies what it means to have a healthy relationship based on love and dedication, which seems rare in society today.

2. She supports her husband no matter what.

Through all her posts it's very obvious that she supports her super talented hubby in all his endeavors -- musical and in life. I think it's super sweet and they perfectly represent what a great relationship should be. Once again, such a role model to those young girls out there that might not have these standards to look up to and to strive for.

3. It's obvious she's got a HUGE heart.

She's involved in so many amazing mission projects and groups that give back like Love One. It's obvious from all her work through these organizations and through her Instagram and Twitter posts that she has a huge heart for others, which in itself is amazing. The world needs more people like this.

4. She's just like everyone else and isn't afraid to highlight that.

She keeps it real. She's never conceited and doesn't try to put up a front to hide behind. She's just like you and me, and in today's society with all the seemingly "perfect" lives of bloggers and celebrities, it's so easy to get lost and lose sight of what is actually real and what actually matters. She's a perfect example of living your life to your highest truth and just keeping it real.

I know, Thomas Rhett is great and all and totally deserves all the credit he's getting for his music, but it's about dang time we give Lauren more credit for being such a great role model to young girls everywhere, myself included.
