"Stranger Things 2" Outdid Itself

I loved the first season, but somehow they made season 2 even better.

"Stranger Things 2" Outdid Itself

"Stranger Things" is absolutely wonderful, as we all know, however I was not prepared for the cinematic perfection that was "Stranger Things 2." After they found Will in the first season, I was not sure how they could keep the plot going, however, they did a wonderful job of bringing new characters and new challenges to face.

The character development of "Stranger Things 2" was such a crucial part of the season. There were unique pairings like Hopper and Eleven, as well as Dustin and Steve, along with new characters like Max, Billy, Bob, and Kali. "Stranger Things 2" also gave us a more in-depth look at Will and the struggles Will still went through even after being saved from the Upside-Down. Eleven and Steve also had huge character developments.

Eleven went through a phase of self discovery, and we got a chance to really watch her evolve in an episode centered solely on her. We also watched Steve grow from the school jock to a guy who really cared about Nancy and wanted what was best for her. He also found a new friend in Dustin, and found his calling as an awesome babysitter.

They writers also carried on the plot in a way that never seemed forced. The opening scene brings so much mystery to the show. We are introduced to Eight or Kali, and we find out she is a lot like Eleven though we are not quite sure how. The fact that Will still has a connection with the Upside Down also brings a whole new level to the show. This gives us a better look into the Upside Down and what is going on. We also confirm what we already knew when we find out Eleven is alive. However, we realized Hopper has her locked away for her safety and no one even knows about it not even Will. We get to see how both of them struggle to be apart from each other. We are also introduced into the love triangle of Max, Dustin, and Lucas. We see poor Dustin get his heart broken, but we also get a new power couple.

"Stranger Things 2" has been absolutely wonderful, and it ended in the most perfect way possible, with the long awaited kiss between Will and Eleven!

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.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

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.
