Hey buddy, you just turned 10 years old and I'll admit I am getting a little sentimental.

I wanted to write you this letter to do a few things actually. One I want to thank you for coming into my life and being such a fun person to have around. Two, I want to give you some advice because what is an article from me without a few tips to move on with, right? Three, I just want to remind you how great you are and how much you can accomplish in life.

I am sure you kind of already know this story, but the night mom told us she was having you, I thought she was telling us we were going to DisneyWorld. You can imagine my disappointment...

Having said that, I did get excited about having another sibling, just having one little brother to boss around and fight with, was getting a little boring.

When you were born everything changed. I changed. I was staying home to help you, play with you, and you became my little buddy.

You quickly became the focal point of family gatherings, Facebook posts, and truly the center of attention. This was because well one, most babies are, but two you were literally good at everything.

You were dribbling basketballs when they were bigger than you were. You could throw a baseball farther than I could. You even made it on the news trying to play basketball in 10-degree weather with the snow taller than you. Like seriously?

This leads me to my next point perfectly. You are a pretty great kid...

You, my friend, have the incredible ability to take on any sport and excel at it. You are super caring and want everyone to be kind and get along. You're better at math than I am (not saying too much, but you get it). Your jokes are getting better and better each time I see you and you surprise me with how witty you actually are.

You are the best little pal a sister could ask for.

You can accomplish anything you set your mind to buddy. You have so many talents, such great qualities, and you will succeed in whatever you want to. Just make sure you don't forget who taught you everything you know when you do!

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.
