Dear Boys That I've "Talked To" ...

Narrated by Taylor Swift

Dear Boys That I've "Talked To" ...

Similar to Taylor Swift, I am that girl who "goes on too many dates". So when I first heard Taylor's new song, "the 1", all about ex-flames who didn't work out, I STARTED BLASTING IT!!!

The lyrics got me thinking and some of them really resonated with me and my experiences. So here it goes, an open letter to all the boys I've talked to, as told by Taylor.

To start off, I know from the start that we were different. We never painted by the numbers baby, but we were making it count. We had our fun together, and it was worth it. But for some reason, it just didn't work.

If one thing had been different, would everything be different today? Maybe we could have worked together after all, but I guess you never know. I can't stay caught up on the what-ifs because after all, you know the greatest loves of all time are over now.

Though I say I can't get caught up on you, I think about you a lot. But in my defense, I have none because, at the end of the day, we were something, don't you think so? I really think that it would have been fun if you would've been the 1. We could be sitting around, rosé flowing with your chosen family. It would have been sweet.

But I guess that it's just another day of waking up alone. I keep telling myself that if you never bleed, you're never gonna grow. Maybe, all you are meant to be for me is a lesson.

Since we haven't been together, I have this dream you're doing cool shit. Or maybe last night you met some woman on the internet and took her home. It doesn't matter to me, I'm doing good, I'm on some new shit. You taught me how to move on with my life and enjoy the little things.

Even though things didn't work, and if my wishes came true, it would have been you, I'm doing fine without you. Thanks for our fling, it taught me a lot. I hope that this letter doesn't dig up the grave another time.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
