Let's Learn To Love Ourselves

We can get discouraged and put ourselves down so much when we compare ourselves to others. We shouldn't do it, but we are human and that's what we do. I wish I didn't do it so much. I constantly see pictures of these beautiful girls on Tumblr and Instagram with their perfect hair, sun kissed skin, white teeth, glowing skin (face), and a body to kill for. I question myself as to why I don't look this way.

I remind myself that even if I want to look like them, I can't because that's not how I was made. Everyone has a different body type and that's what makes us all unique. If we want to make ourselves look like others, that just makes us copies. I don't want to be a copy, I want to be Ilana.

-I have frizzy hair no matter how much product I put in it
-I have great teeth that may not be white but I practice very good dental hygiene
-I'm not extremely tan, but I use sun block to protect my skin and prevent skin cancer
-I don't have flawless skin, but I do wash my face every day and moisturize and I'm not extremely acne prone, so I consider myself lucky
-My body type is unique to me and I can't change it (unless I went under the knife but that's not happening)

It's good to list these things about myself to show the positive and real side of it all. So I leave you with this quote I saw on Pinterest, know your worth, then add tax :)

Royal Caribbean: Allure of the Seas experience

I just came back from my week long cruise on the Allure of the Seas and let me tell you, this was such an amazing cruise ship! If I could bring every single person on this planet on this cruise ship, I would. I had such a fun time with my family and created new friendships and that's the beauty of cruises, they bring everyone together.

Central Park:  So, they had a "central park" on the ship and that was probably one of my favorite parts of the ship. (The photo above is me in front of the entrance). It had restaurants, stores, string lights, a Rising Tide bar, and picturesque plants and statues.

Cruise Activities:  There were so many things to do on this ship that you could never be bored. Clubs, zip lining, FlowRider, carousel, ping pong, mini golf, basketball, pool, karaoke, zumba, spa, musicals,  comedy shows, shopping, the casino and more! Seriously, you have something to do at all times, including eating copious amounts of food.

Dining:  Ok, so I wasn't thoroughly…

10 Questions From Pretty Little Liars We Still Want Answers To

The series finale of Pretty Little Liars left everyone with mixed reactions, but mostly I've seen some angry comments and many were disappointed with how it ended. Still so many plot holes and after 7 years, you would think we have all of our questions answered. Here are 10 questions we still want answers to:

1. What happened to Aria's brother?

2. Why wasn't he at the wedding?

3. Why did the horse figure out it wasn't Spencer before her own friends?

4. When Ezra first met Aria at the bar, he knew she was Ali's friend. Did he know Aria's true age then or did he not find out that Ali was a teenager?

5. What happened to Melissa?

6. How did Spencer kill Wren?

7. Did Alison and Emily find out that Wren is the father of their children?

8. Who was Bethany Young?

9. Who was "he" when the girls came running into Ali's classroom saying "he's coming".

10. Who kidnapped the girls during the Dollhouse episode?

I'm really upset about the endi…

Ryan Seacrest Spotted With An Old Flame

Credit: WENN

Ryan Seacrest was spotted with his ex-girlfriend Shayna Taylor in Venice going for a bike ride. Shayna is a model and personal chef, so she's not only beautiful, but very successful. The possible couple broke up 2 years ago, but it looks like things may be back on. They were all smiles while out on the town with their bikes and even stopped for a bite to eat. It's reported that Shayna was his date to a friend's wedding over Thanksgiving weekend.
