Shoes over Guys any day…

A good guy is like a good pair of shoes: they add some pep in your step, style to your smile, and gives you the support you need.


Books over boys, fries before guys… shoes over guys any day. I always see myself hearing these comparisons of guys to objects that people couldn't live without, as if we need guys to live… books (an education), fries (who doesn't love some good fast food), and for me... it's shoes.

People obtain all different hobbies and interests, don't you? Well for me, I enjoy fashion... and shoes are my absolute favorite part of an ideal OOTD. I always say that shoes can make or break your outfit.

Just like a pair of shoes can spiffy up or dampen down your choice of what to wear, guys can do the same. Ok, maybe not so much in terms of an outfit, but in terms of personality, hobbies, and emotions. Being single gives me the ability to recognize the traits that I want in a guy from seeing other relationships around me. A good guy is like a good pair of shoes: they add some pep in your step, style to your smile, and gives you the support you need.Imagine your favorite pair of shoes that you wear out on a Friday night girls' night. My shoes that I wear out for a well-deserved night out are my black-pumps with a thick, gold heel. Your go-to shoes add sass to your outfit, make your legs look good and have everyone staring. Having a guy with the qualities of pumping you up is necessary, just like your favorite heels (my black pumps) make you feel good.

As shoes are important to your persona and self-confidence, so is the guy you're with. If he does not resemble a good pair of shoes (in a figurative sense), he's not for you. Shoes over guys any day, especially when they make you feel your most best.

6 Major Health Benefits Of A Crazy Road Trip

Take that sick road trip you've been wanting to go on, it's actually super good for your health.


We all have a crazy adventure planned, that we live out solely through our Pinterest boards. It wasn't until recently, when I myself took the trip of a lifetime with two of my best friends, that I realized how good road trips can actually be for both your mind AND body.

Driving = Hippocampus Expansion

Taylor Kellogg

Driving, especially long distances, helps your brain with spatial reasoning. A Sunny Afternoon explains that driving actually helps this region of the brain make calculations and increases brain power. Kinda like sudoku... but on wheels.

New places, faces and experiences = MENTAL WORKOUT

Taylor Kellogg

Think of all the cool things you will see, the hundreds of different people you could meet, and the awesome places you'll explore. This overload of new information to process will help your brain build its capacity.

Fresh air and sunshine is the key to bettering your mind, which leads to bettering your body. Not only do your lungs get a break from pollution-filled air, but the sun boosts the Vitamin D levels in your body to put you in a better mood.

Good company = good mood.

Taylor Kellogg

Choose your travel buddies wisely. Yes, you'll be stuck in the car with them for a LONG period of time, but they also can help with your mental health. The happier you are and the more you laugh, the bigger boost your serotonin levels will get.

You (most likely) will get a lot of good exercise.

OK, hear me out... I know being cooped up in the car on a road trip isn't very good exercise. It's so important to pick a place that features some sort of physical aspect (I just took a hiking trip to a few national parks in Utah) so you can stretch those legs.

Your mind will thank you for finally going tech-free.

Taylor Kellogg

We're all obsessed with our phones (you are... admit it). Going on a road trip is the perfect way to go unplugged and give your eyes/mind a rest. Less smartphone/email/social media time means less stress.

If you need some backup for convincing your parents to let you go on a road trip, show them this article. You're welcome and travel safe!!!

Everyone in the world, has an individual dream. Whether it be their life dream, their dream vacation, their dream job, their dream family, their dream partner in life, their forever dream. Dreams are what drive us to be the best people we can be. Chase the stars. Here is a poem to remind everyone to never forget their dreams....



"Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow"

By: Langston Hughes

Dreams are what keep me going everyday. The dream of my life. The dream to live where I want. The dream to do what I want. The dream to conquer the world. The dream to succeed. The dream to be happy in my own life.
