12 Destinations On My Travel Bucket List

In my lifetime, whether it be in the next two years or 25, I intend on traveling to as many places as I possibly can. The list is endless, and if I could visit every country/city/state possible, I would. Keeping it short and sweet, I've listed some unique highlights to consider if given the chance to.

1. Pamukkale Hot Springs in Turkey

These hot springs were declared a World Heritage Site and remain a popular attraction and you can even swim in some of the pools!

2. Elephant Nature Park, Chiang Mai, Thailand

The Elephant Nature Park is a humane preserve where you can spend the day among the large creatures, contrary to the controversial tourist attraction of elephant rides that are popular.

3. Ibiza, Spain

A popular party city for the younger crowd in Europe, Ibiza is an island in Spain known for its nightlife. Beyond that, the scenery is beautiful and gorgeous beaches.

4. Amsterdam, Netherlands

The scenic canals, the Anne Frank House, and the much more lenient laws (if you get what I mean) are a few of the many reasons to visit the notorious city.

5. Big Major Cay, Bahamas

Big Major Cay is an island inhabited solely by the "swimming pigs" whose arrival to the island is still a mystery. The pigs are accustomed to tourists, which allows you to swim and frolic amongst them.

6. White Cliffs of Dover, England

The cliffs reach up to 300 feet in height and on a clear day you can see France across the Channel.

7. Giant Buddah, Hong Kong, China

The largest seated Buddah in the world requires a bit of a hike to the top, but is worth the walk to see, if you're into that stuff.

8. Victoria Falls, Zambia, Africa

The largest waterfall in the world and features the Devil's Pool, where you can swim on the edge of the drop.

9. Santorini, Greece

The gorgeous coastline and picturesque architecture make Santorini a popular location for romantic getaways.

10. Great Barrier Reef, Australia

The largest coral reef in the world is home to over 600 types of coral making it the largest living thing in the world.

They say the best time to travel is when you're young. You have no job holding you in one place, but that also means you probably don't have the funds to country-hop. Maybe that's the way you prefer to see the world, though, stripped down to its bare minimums and seeing the raw beauty of a foreign country. Some people prefer to wait until they have the financial ability to experience the higher end of travel. Whatever the case, you should not leave this planet having missed out on its wonder.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely. I mean, come on, we need to see if James Harden can once again perform so well he has back-to-back 50 point games, Kawhi can lead another team to the championship title, and whether Giannis is going to be back-to-back MVP... among like 500 other things running through our heads!

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.

1. They have low self-esteem.
