The perfect song to vibe to in the car.

Nothing can get better than to jam out to this with your friends.

3. 92 Explorer by Post Malone


A classic Post Malone tune.

"Psycho" hit the top of the charts in 2018 and was my personal most played song of the year.

5. Taste (feat. Offset) by Tyga

Recommended to blast this on full volume.

6. Normal Girl by Bryson Tiller (cover)

Bryson Tiller is an iconic R&B artist and this cover (in my opinion) is better than the original.

A great beat to play at any pre-game during tailgate season.

In my opinion, "Scorpion" wasn't Drake's best album but it still has some great songs.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
