Valentine’s Day sometimes feels like it’s more complicated than it’s worth. If you’re in a relationship, what should you do to show your significant other that you love them? How much is too much? Is it necessary to put in more effort on Valentine’s Day than on any other day of the year? And if you’re single, should you try to go out and meet someone? Should you curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and a sappy rom-com? Or should you try to forget that Valentine’s Day exists altogether?
If we’re being perfectly honest, all the exciting, mature Valentine’s Day visions we dreamed up as kids didn’t turn out to be that exciting after all. Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a fun, frilly celebration of love, but instead it’s become an excuse to stress out about either being in a relationship or not being a relationship. Discount chocolate sales and romantic movie marathons aside, we don’t think we’d miss Valentine’s Day if it suddenly and mysteriously went away.

Watch below as Jade chats about how she got into music, what it’s like to attend one of her shows, and what we can expect from her new music. And don’t miss her completed moodboard below!

Get your game face pants on because Super Bowl Sunday is almost here!
You may have heard that the Super Bowl is for football, but ~in our eyes~ it’s actually known as the championship of snacking. Wings and pizza are go-to choices, but it’s not a bad idea to also have some healthier options on hand (new year, new me…I guess).
Here are five healthy (and honestly very tasty) Super Bowl snack ideas that won’t be met with any *interference* from your viewing party guests.

Meditation is a way to train your mind, similar to how fitness is an approach to training your body.

Last January, thousands of women, men, and non-binary folks from all over the world banded together to advocate for women’s rights and the rights of those who feel oppressed or silenced. And this year they’ll be at it again, with a Women’s March that promises to be even bigger and better than the first.
While most 19-year-olds are learning the trials and tribulations of tequila drunk vs. vodka drunk vs. wine drunk, 19-year-old Daya is collaborating with The Chainsmokers, carving out a super successful career, and already has a Grammy.
