To the Girl Before Me

There are many things I could say to you and frankly I don't even know where to start. A part of me, a small very minuscule part of me, feels bad for you. You lost out on a great man. A man who would treat you like a princess. One of the sweetest most caring guys was at your fingertips willing to make you the happiest girl and you took every opportunity to walk all over him. Shoving your heels so far into his back, you never thought he'd be able to stand up for himself.

At that thought my blood start to boil and my insides twist in anger. You hurt him every chance you got, digging deep into his insecurities to make yourself feel better. You "didn't think he'd leave you?!" Well surprise, someone can only bend so far before they break. You are the worst kind of person who deserves the loneliness she creates for herself. It's comical watching you try and be a better person towards him to 'win him back' but the artificial behavior is quite transparent. As if those who are in this world were solely created with the purpose of serving you. Your entitlement to everything makes the ugliness on the outside ooze into your insides. You live in a fantasy world and one day the glass around your snow-globe life will shatter with the reality that your egotistical, attention seeking attitude will land you no where. Hold off on sending the invitations to the pity party though, because you only did it to yourself.

The true intent of this letter however, brings me an overwhelming sense of ease because I can't thank you enough for being horrible because I can now show him what he deserves; a woman who cherishes and loves him to no limits. You broke him down and now I get to build him back up with the love and support he needs. I get to love him in every way, and every day for the rest of life because you couldn't see what you had in front of you. Unlike you, I will make sure to appreciate every minute I have of him, of being his fiance and soon enough wife, a title you'll never know the feeling of having. I'll never let him feel like he is unworthy. He is more than worthy, sometimes I think he is worthy of way more than me and because of this I will strive to appreciate him more than you or any one else for that matter ever has. You had your chance to be with him and you treated him like a doormat. Years down the line I hope to come across you again to show you how an amazing happy life with the most wonderful man looks like because I'm sure you won't be experiencing anything close to it . Now it's my turn to love him and I promise I'll do a way better job then you ever did.

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.

Everything You Need To Know About COVID-19 Outcomes, Because It Has To End Eventually

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

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.
