Why Keeping Kylie's Pregnancy Secret Was So Great

Why Keeping Kylie's Pregnancy Secret Was So Great

We all knew it, but was it any of our business?


After months and months of guessing and rumors, we guessed it! Kylie Jenner was, in fact, pregnant with her new baby girl that she welcomed into the world on February 1st. So far, all sources, including Ms. Jenner, lead us to believe she, the baby, and the father, Travis Scott, are doing just fine.

Why keep this miracle a secret? Was it to shock the world? Publicity? Embarrassment of being a young, unmarried mother? According to Kylie, none of those projected rumors are true. In fact, the secret was supposedly for her and her daughter's well-being to enjoy and travel along the journey that is pregnancy in peace and away from the public eye

I mean, her mother's amazing "mom"ager skills definitely were at work here. Announcing the birth of your child from your secret pregnancy on Super Bowl Sunday? C'mon. That's genius. I mean if that was my 21-year-old self in real life, no one would have cared and my mom would of beat my ass (LOL). But, It's Kylie Jenner, and that's why it's a HUGE deal.

But people forget that celebrities are humans too. Picture yourself, 20 years old, young, living a busy life, having a blast, in Kylie's case -- running a very successful cosmetic company and then becoming pregnant. This isn't to say you can't have fun, but a child does change one's life dramatically. Celebrity or not, this news can create a lot of stress, especially when you are someone that is watched and criticized daily for every move.

Jenner released an announcement on February 4th, followed by a video entitled, "To Our Daughter," sharing parts of her pregnancy journey with the world. I am not a huge KUWK fan, and I haven't closely followed the Kardashian/Jenner rise to fame, but as a stranger getting to see a glimpse into her journey, it was very touching.

Kylie Jenner's friends were featured in the video, welcoming her new daughter into the world. Their friendship warmed my heart, not one of them leaked a single photo or information the media, although it could have been worth billions. That's genuine friendship. The family did a great job concealing this pregnancy for Kylie and the baby's sake.

We as onlookers into her life should admire her efforts for going through her pregnancy privately. Those beautiful moments are private and mean so much -- she wasn't obligated to share any of that with the world. As a young woman, I can admire Kylie for taking the efforts she did for her and her daughter's health and well being. That shows maturity on her part, going those lengths to protect her child before she has even been welcomed to the world.

Congratulations to new mother and father, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott, and the families for their new little blessing. Welcome to the world, baby girl!

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.

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.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

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.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"
