Life At 24

I just turned 24 this past weekend and I kept thinking to myself, "what does 24 mean? 24 years of being on this Earth? of discovering myself?". Honestly, the realization of my age didn't hit me until I was doing my makeup the night of my birthday party. I put down my eyeshadow brush, looked at myself with a shocked expression, and then picked up my brush and continued on.

24 is so young, yet it's many years of memories and of growing up. I can honestly say I've learned a lot about myself. I know what my interests are and what makes me happy. I know I have a good heart and I'm always there for people. I know that no matter what happens, I always get through it.

Getting older is both frightening and exciting all at the same time. The future scares me sometimes because you don't know what's ahead, but then I start to think of everything good that could happen in the future and that makes it worth waiting. I may not be where I want to be at this point in time, but at least I'm somewhere. I'm doing what I love, writing, which has brought me some great opportunities. I'm surrounded by my family and some great friends, and my dog :).

23 was great and all, but I'm willing to make 24 my best year yet! Look out world, Ilana is coming for you!

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.
