5 Reasons Why 70-Degree Weather Is 100% Better Than Winter

Sorry, winter lovers, there are just some things about 70 degree weather that you just cant beat.

1. The outfits

While this may come as a shock to some people, I have found that many others and myself agree on this point. Once were sick of the weather, everyone boasts about how excited they are to be able to layer cute outfits once again in response to the fall and winter seasons. In reality though, I have spent the whole winter wearing a variety of leggings and crewnecks just about..every single day. I always have high hopes for myself but when it comes down to it, who wants to put on a cold pair jeans when its -10 degrees out?

2. Sunglasses

As a tip to all my lazy readers out there, sunglasses are a lifesaver. Don’t feel like putting on makeup today? Sunglasses are the answer to your prayers. Not only are they stylish, but they allow you to look your best with minimal effort.

3. Easier on your car and the roads

I am so happy and relieved that the cold weather is coming to an end because this means less car problems, less accidents, and less slippery roads. My car has failed me many times this winter due to the dropping temperatures, in addition to being covered in piles of snow.

4. The beach

While I myself split between city trips and beach trips, there’s nothing like a beautiful day out surrounded by good vibes and sunny weather. In the summer, you get to look forwards to beach trips and relaxing days by the shore. Besides, no one goes on vacation in hopes of freezing temperatures.

5. The longer nights

With summer approaching, school comes to an end. Even if you’re the kind of person who hates the heat, there’s no denying we all love the lack of responsibility that accompanies warm months and the weight that lifts off of us from exams, homework, and classes.

Summer, we are SO ready for you.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
