Everyone has different music tastes, which is great! I prefer pop and 80's music. I am only putting pop music on this playlist as a way to appeal to the masses instead of a niche. There are songs on here that cross genres and give their own twist, so even if you think you won't like any songs on this playlist, give them a listen!

1. "What A Time" - Julia Michaels & Niall Horan

This is a song that reminds me of the feelings of fall, but with the freshness of spring, if that makes any sense. There is also an acoustic version on YouTube for my coffee-shop type listeners. This song has such powerful vocals from Julia that you can't help but feel some sort of emotion. It is a ballad about a breakup, that they knew was right for them, but they want to be back at the time they were together. I bet a lot of you can relate to this and it is a nice way to know that you're not alone.

2. "Who Do You Love" - The Chainsmokers & 5 Seconds of Summer.

Not even going to lie, I am the biggest 5sos stan. I love them. But this song gives their sound a whole new dimension. It allows them to give the guitars and slight punk rock feeling we're used to while introducing the pop aspect that Chainsmokers are known for and combining them into an undeniable bop. I love this song, it is so much fun to sing in the car. They have been on Spotify's "Today's top hits" list since the day it came out. Rightfully so.

3. "Sucker" - Jonas Brothers

This is hands down the best comeback song of all time. It is such a fun song with a great beat and even better vocals. All of my 90's and 2000's babies understand how exciting this is. At first, I didn't listen to the song because I like Joe and Nick separately as artists and their tastes were quite different from each other. I was worried the song wouldn't live up to the hype and people were just excited because the jobros were back. My assumptions were wrong. This song is one I can see myself listening to all summer and enjoying it every single time. It is so fun and a great conversation starter. Spoiler alert: the video is amazing.

4. "Talk" - Khalid

This is a teen anthem if I've ever heard one. khalid takes an issue that I know a lot of teens deal with (communication) and makes it into a great pop song. It is relatable and fun. His voice is amazing and honestly, he has come out with a bunch of songs lately, all great, but this one is my favorite.

5. "bad idea" - Ariana Grande

I'm actually going to start this by saying that the entire discography of Ariana Grande is amazing. Everyone has heard "Thank U, Next" and "7 Rings," but "Bad Idea" is still fairly new. It is a bad b*tch anthem in my opinion. It is fun, the vocals are great, and you can bond over other peoples' shared love for Ari.

6. "Wow." - Post Malone.

This song has been out for a couple of months but has yet to leave the top charts. I personally think this is Post's best song. The beat is infectious, it is on brand for him and his listeners, it has pop culture references, and honestly is just really good. It is a song to jam to in the car or while you bust it out in the gym. 10/10.

7. "Please Me" - Cardi B & Bruno Mars

Yes! The power duo is back! I have to say, this collaboration duo is one of my favorite voice pairings of all time. Cardi is so much fun but also sexy, and Bruno brings so much sex appeal with his voice while reminding you to have fun. Both of the songs they have come out with together have been hits for that exact reason. I love this song and love them together.

8. "Dancing With A Stranger" - Sam Smith and Normani

This is a relatable, pop, teen music mixed with Sam Smiths heavenly ballad, type break-up song. It is a song you could play in the club while trying to forget about your recent love battles and feel good about it. Their voices work great together and I think this is a great collab.

9. "Sally Walker" - Iggy Azalea

Iggy is back and came for us with this new song. I honestly think this is a great pop song and the music video is even better. It's a fun play on a childhood song that everyone knows and allows you to just cut loose and have fun.

10. "wish you were gay" - Billie Eilish

Billie is huge right now. People love her, and rightfully so. This song has strong vocals and a deep beat. It reminds me of Lourde. Her music is good and all around the same genre of dark pop. She's not for everyone but if you like her, you know how good this song is.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
