Mini Summer Bucket List: Jersey Style
Jaylen Molina

With summer weather approaching, you may find yourself wanting to decide what this summer could have in store. Here are some ideas to turn a normal day into something great!

1. Visit the shore!

New Jersey may be famous for some things, but the Jersey Shore is definitely one of them! Take a ride to the shore and visit a number of beaches, including Belmar, Point Pleasant, Seaside, Long Branch, and many more. Visiting the shore can consist of just going down for the day or even extending your trip my renting out a shore house! The beach is just a place that never gets old!

2. Go hiking!

Buttermilk Falls

If you're not in the mood for the beach, try hiking! There are many hiking trails from the Buttermilk Falls in Layton, NJ to the Stairway to Heaven in Vernon, NJ. I personally never thought I would be a fan of hiking until I finally tried and now I love it!

3. Visit a zoo!

New Jersey has many zoos, such as the Turtle Back Zoo, Cape May County Park and Zoo, Popcorn Park Zoo, and many more!. The animals at these zoos will for sure make your day!

4. Take a trip to Six Flags!

Superman Rollercoaster

A visit to Six Flags Great Adventure is always one that's been my favorite! The feeling on getting a rollercoaster for the first time of the season always feels like it's the first time! For those extremely hot summer days, visit Six Flags Hurricane Harbor right next door. Though the park is awesome during the summer, their Fright Fest theme makes the park 100 times more exciting!

5. Check out Liberty State Park!

This park holds one of the best views of the New York skyline, which is one that can never get old! The park also holds a 9/11 memorial called The Empty Sky, which are two steel walls with engravings of the 749 names of those lost during the attack.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
