Thirty-Two Silly Things to be Thankful For

Thirty-Two Silly Things to be Thankful For

Thanksgiving isn't the only day to be thankful.

Thirty-Two Silly Things to be Thankful For

1. Starbucks

I don't really know what I would do without my trusty sidekick, the Green Tea Late. Sometimes accompanying me two times a day, iced or hot, it has blessed my tastebuds with a sweet comforting taste that helps me power through my day.

2. Squishy Pillows

Nothing is quite as great as that one perfect pillow. After years and years of wearing it down, you finally get it to the perfect balance between firm and flat. To bad it only lasts a short amount of time before it falls flat.

3. Clean Water

As silly as that sounds coming from an American, I am so appreciative for this resource that is limited around the world. I can wash my car, fill my hot tub, and drink right out of the sink without having to worry where my water has come from.

4. Silly Faces

Some small action can really brighten some situations, especially a goofy face towards a friend or from a munchkin.

5. Mac and Cheese

Oh so ooey-gooey, and ever so perfect, any pasta and cheese combo is a lifesaver on any day.

6. Fuzzy Socks

While some piggies go to the market, and some go to school, the happiest piggies spend time cuddle in these warm cozy socks.

7. Rain

Let's be honest, there hardly is anything bad about rain. The smell, the sound, and its beauty is honestly remarkable.

8. Victoria Secret

Whoever put in the work to make consistently comfortable underwear deserves a round of applause.

9. Health

I have had a cold lately, and nothing seem more relevant for being thankful for my health. It's a small thing we take for granted daily, but it is a total gamechanger.

10. Chicken Fried Steak

With creamy gravy and even better mashed potatoes... If only I could get my hands on some as good as my mom's.

11. Diversity

Growing up in a cookie-cutter town is something I am so thankful for, but moving across the country and being a part of something so much bigger than Gardnerville, NV is a truly amazing experience.

12. Sweat Pants

A gift sent straight fro heaven.. that's that.

13. Google

Who would've guessed we would have the power to have access to anything in the world with a click of a few buttons.

14. Peaches

Nothing is more delicious than a nice juicy peach in the summer.

15. Girls Scout Cookies

Thank the Lord for little girls who slave away trying to sell delicious sugary treats, even though it is detrimental to my wallet.

16. Democracy

With the election being over, I am blessed to have been apart of a country who has many freedom, like the right to vote for all races and genders.

17. Mac Cosmetics

Whoever took the time to make beautiful sparkling powders and bold lipsticks is an angel sent from my dreams. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

18. Education

After being in class with students who are not from the states, I am so blessed and thankful to be able to receive the education I am. As a woman, I am doing things other women couldn't even dream of. It's a blessing no matter the trails.

19. Pastel Colors

Maybe it's just a phase, but these light shades have been making my day a little more calm.

20. Sunshine

Sent from miles across the solar system, a kiss from the fireball that is the sun makes any day a little brighter (literally and figuratively).

21. Lake Tahoe

A beautiful crater of water in the mountains has blessed my family and friends for decades. Nothing is more beautiful, and I can't wait to come home to be reunited with its beauty.

22. G2 Pilot Pens

With many colors, nothing has made taking notes easier over the past

23. Mountains

Offering a timeless view, these geologic masterpieces are the background to our daily life; again, I can't wait to be reunited with Job's peak.

24. Crayons

With a multitude of colors, these waxy sticks have made any child happy since dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Let's be honest, mac-and-cheese yellow and periwinkle have brightened your day a time or two.

25. Uggs

Fluffy and comfy... need I say more?

26. Succulents

These little lively fellas will keep you company, just make sure they get enough sunlight.

27. Parks

Playgrounds, grass, and open space galore, nothing can relax you more than a nice picnic in one.

28. New York Skyline

Something beautiful and new to a West-coast-gal.

29. Old Movies

Oldies but goodies, any classic like Jaws or Ferris Buehler's Day Off, will be sure to knock your socks off again and again. Cuddle up and pop some corn for this movie night.

30. Hooded Sweatshirts

Something so simple keep you from getting the chills.

31. Sour Gummy Worms

A go-to snack for a sugar-addict girl.

32. Cats

These furry felines, regardless of size or color, make me one happy girl.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
