Going on a sunny vacation with friends this spring break? Mexico? Punta Cana? Anywhere warm?? Here's a list of easy things to forget in the midst of the excitement, but they're essential:

1. Bathing suits

You better not forget these. Pack at least two or three because ya never know!

2. Hats

The sun can take a toll on your face and eyes-- bring a hat to give it a break and block the rays.

3. Sunscreen

If you're going somewhere near the equator, it's smart to invest in a more expensive sunscreen that is sure to protect your skin. After all, the sun is just ~stronger~ down there.

4. Face masks 

Skin care is super important on sunny vacations. Face masks are helpful, relaxing, and fun too!

5. Flip-flops

You'll need them for the beach, but probably won't want to wear them on the airplane...so don't forget to pack them in your suitcase!

6. Book

Bring a good book to let your mind wander while your laying on the beach or by the pool.

7. Sunglasses

Sunglasses are super easy to forget, but they're essential to any vacation in the sun! Don't be stuck squinting.

8. Chargers

Bring your regular wall charger and a portable one to bring to the beach and anywhere else you venture out to while traveling.

9. Aloe/Moisturizer 

If you burn even after putting on sunscreen, have some aloe to help yourself out a bit. Moisturizer is important too! Use it every morning and night if you can.

10. Beach bag

You'll definitely need something to carry all your stuff in to the beach! Designate a bag that you don't mind getting a little sandy.

11. Passport

Leaving the country? THIS. IS. IMPORTANT. I mean, you can't even leave the airport without it...

12. Makeup bag and wipes

Although you'll be relaxing and all natural in the sun during the day, the night time could get fun and fancy. Don't forget your make up bag so you can do yourself up and the wipes to take it all of later when you hit the sheets.

13. Lip care products

Chapstick is crucial (with SPF of course)! Keep your lips healthy and happy.

14. Towel

Sometimes it's just nice to have your own beach towel if you have room in your suitcase!

15. Medicine 

Sickness is super common on vacation-- especially if you're in a new country or on a different time zone. Advil is crucial and hangovers are real.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.

20131

Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
