To The Sisters I Never Had, But Now Do

During my life, I didn't have any sisters. It all changed when I turned fourteen and I couldn't be any happier!

To the sisters I never had but now do,

I am so happy that you have been a part of my life ever since you kindly invited me into your family. My life before was not the easiest, especially being the only child. You helped ease my pain by giving me the emotional and physical support that I needed to get through this tough time. I know it took some getting used to for all of us but almost nine years later it has been better than ever! I would have never thought that I would get this amazing opportunity to have two amazing sisters and to be in a supportive family like I am now, and I don't think anyone knows how eternally grateful I am.

Mackenzie, you are my oldest sister and I look up to you so much. You are such a hardworking and powerful soul. You kick ass in anything you do and always power through any hardship. I appreciate the days we can talk, and how easily you can give me advice on problems you have already encountered. When I first moved in with you we were very close, getting our nails done together and having lunch dates. I remember when you would take Bailey and me to the mall with you, even though you didn't want to. You are a very selfless person who will help anyone when they need it. You let me move in with you when I couldn't find a place in time. It was a hard time for both of us because it was such a change but I think that it made our relationship stronger in the end. I appreciate how strong you are, you have gone through so many troubles and you are still standing strong and living life. I hope that I am as hard working, dedicated, and as tough as you are now later in my life. You give me the willpower to do so. I thank the universe every day that I was able to have a sister as amazing as you.

Bailey, my spirit animal, you are such a crazy and amazing person! When I came into this family we had a lot of hard times, but now that we are older I have never found any other person that understands me as much as you do. You except me for the person that I am and I love that that's how you are towards any other person you meet in life as well. You are so strong and can overcome any obstacle that is in your way. You make life your b!tch, and never care what anyone else thinks about you. You are the one who taught me to just be yourself and flip off the person who doesn't like you or appreciate what you have to give. You taught me how to stand up for myself and not take any s#!t.

You are such a free spirit and that is what I admire most about you. I love the things you stand for, from yoga to adventures and to you moving when you know that you have more in life to offer. I love how spirited you are and how you can teach me more about myself than I know. I want you to know that I live vicariously through you, supporting everything you do and wanting you to grow and blossom from the beautiful soul you are now. You have so much to show people and I hope people appreciate you as much as I do because you are one amazing woman. (Crying in the club rn)

I hope that every person experiences a love as I have. Whether it be having sisters, brothers or friends that are powerful enough to help you in life. They are always your number one supporters and will always be there for you. They will always be by your side playing the game of life with you. I am so blessed that I have two amazing sisters that show me this every day. Even if they are far away our spirits will never be parted; a love like this is never going to be broken in a million years. Just know I love you guys and everything you do for me doesn't go unnoticed.

Love your sister for life,

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.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

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.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

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.
