I wanted a Subway sandwich.
I was out shopping with my mom. The adrenaline that comes from wildly spending money, mixed with perseverance to find a bag that looked like a Givenchy Antigona without the cost, left me famished.
We found ourselves in the mall.
“Do you want Subway?” I asked, stepping into the line.
I’ll be honest. My mother had no choice. My stomach lead my heart, and my heart led my feet, and my feet led me to Subway. It was basically the plot line of every romance novel ever written.

As you undoubtedly already know because my YouTube videos are vastly popular, I’ve moved out of my parents house. We went from a family of six to five, to four, to three, until I finally flew the coup.
And now I’m all alone.
A lone wolf. A loner. A wanderer without strings, going wherever the wind takes me, responsible for no one and nothing. Also, very long-winded in her sentences.

I like to go on drives at night; quiet, peaceful strolls around the suburban neighborhoods.
Autumn leaves crunch under the weight of my old Sedan. I crack the window, and a crisp breeze cools my face. Pumpkin spice wafts from the kitchens of model homes, houses all painted rose and cream. This is a place where nothing bad happens, where a girl like me can live alone.
But even when the darkness falls, my hair rises with the static of a threat looming in the doorways of my home.
A presence that I know isn’t there—but then I look again.

I recently finished the Gossip Girl series on Netflix, and like any Netflix junkie who cannot cope with the stress of finding a new show to watch, I simply went back to season one and started again.
Not to worry. There will be NO spoilers given.
I, like any faithful brunette who feels for those who are constantly over-shadowed by the bombshell blonde, have a soft spot in my heart for Blair Waldorf, and rightly so. She is an incredible, fictional, girl-who-I-please-want-as-a-best-friend, real to me!, human being. And I love her for many reasons.

I’m lazy. But I’m unashamed. See, lazy people, we’re creative. We’re visionaries. We think outside the box.
We don’t get the credit we deserve.
Now, I’m not accusing you. It’s possible you haven’t been taught. You simply don’t understand the lifestyle I and so many others have chosen.
You watch my actions, but you don’t see the utter genius of it all. That’s why I’m here, an advocate for lazy people around the world!
I’m about to persuade you with the written word. . . Right after this twenty minute YouTube break.

When any woman is in a glorified, high and honored position, she should be a lot of things.
Graceful. Intelligent. Quiet (when the moment calls for it). A leader. Strong. Mature.
I have my moments. Moments I walk into a room and exercise momentary restraint by not screaming “whoo does it STINK in here! Do you SMELL that? No really. Do you smell that?” and proceeding then, in an undertone, to lean over to my neighbor and murmur, “who do you think did it?”
Then I have my moments of complete and utter failure. Moments I look back on, tilt my head, and think: maybe that’s why I wouldn’t make a good first lady. . .

The art of chivalry is dying. BUT I REFUSE TO LET IT DIE.
It’s not weak to let a man be sweet to you. And you’re not a chump if you care.
Ladies like gentlemen. When a man is a gentleman, he’s immediately more handsome, more trustworthy, more respected, and more endeared. He is our prince charming, our night in shining armor, our hero.
But how do I become a gentleman, Rebekah?
I’m glad you asked, Bob. Here is your guide to being a gentleman.

I am a teeth person. Some people notice eyes. Some notice the shine of a new manicure. I have a friend who looks at noses (oh boy did I judge).
I notice teeth.
Because of this, my teeth have always bothered me. There was always that one. Finally, I decided to do something about it.

Today, the struggle was real. However, I fought through the exhaustion, caffeine shakes, and vigorous ADHD to produce for you—for YOU, dear friend— a review of some pretty awesome makeup products, all things considered.
Two of Kat Von D’s LockIt Concealers, translucent powder, two brushes, and even my Kat Von D contour pallet made it into the mix.
I think it’s no secret that Kat Von D knows her makeup.
