3 New Artists You Need To Know
The End in Mind

While I love Taylor Swift and The Weeknd as much as anyone, there's something especially awesome about discovering new music and listening to the latest artists before they blow up and hit super stardom. All three of the following artists are just minutes away from making it big, so make it a point to get to know them soon. You can thank me later.

Troye Sivan

South African-born and Australian-raised, 20-year-old Troye Sivan has an insanely popular YouTube channel, two EPs, and a feature-length album coming in December. His 3.6 million YouTube subscribers and 3 million Twitter followers are more than ready to make him into the next big thing, and he definitely deserves it.

Favorite Song: Ease

Favorite Lyric: My youth is yours/ Trippin' on skies, sippin' waterfalls

Alessia Cara

If you know of Alessia Cara already, it may be from her sleeper hit "Here," or from her guest spot on the final US show of Taylor Swift's 1989 world tour in Tampa. If you don't know about her yet, do yourself a favor and familiarize yourself with her music now, so you have bragging rights when she starts winning Grammys and selling out arena tours.

Favorite Song: Seventeen

Favorite Lyric: Since my friends are here, I just came to kick it/
But really I would rather be at home all by myself


Halsey got her start on YouTube, Tumblr and SoundCloud, posting under her real name, Ashley Frangipane. Her debut studio album, Badlands, is not only expertly written, but inspiring, heartbreaking, and catchy all at the same time.

Favorite Song: Colors

Favorite Lyric: You were red, and you liked me because I was blue/ But you touched me, and suddenly I was a lilac sky/ Then you decided purple just wasn't for you

Honorable Mention: MisterWives

While not particularly new, indie band MisterWives is beginning to hit it big across the US. The New York-based band performed at music festival SXSW and recently spent time opening up for Twenty One Pilots.

Favorite Song: Reflections

Favorite Lyric: Into my soul you stared/ And broke down every fear

I highly recommend giving these new artists a shot- if not for anything more than bragging rights when they're famous. The playlist below will give you a good taste of what they have to offer.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Breaking Down The Beginning, Middle, And End of Netflix's Newest 'To All The Boys' Movie

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
