Read All About Marvel’s Runaways Actress Ariela Barer

Runaways, the newest Marvel series to hit the airwaves, just premiered yesterday on Hulu and we’re itching to watch it.

Starring alongside Gregg Sulkin is actress and musician Ariela Barer, and we were more than happy to give her the spotlight this week as our Woman Crush Wednesday.

Read all about her down below!

Name: Ariela Barer

Hometown: Los Angeles, California

Birthday: Oct. 14

Zodiac Sign: Libra

Fun Facts:

1. In addition to being an actress, she’s also in a majorly cool band called The Love-Inns. “It’s special to me because I started the band with my best friend Eden Hain when we were 16, and we’ve grown a lot together through our music,” she tells Sweety High.

A post shared by Ariela (@arielabarer) on

2. Her mom is all about eating right so she always finds creative ways to make food both healthy and delicious. “One thing she makes that I love is cauliflower pizza,” Ariela says. “She grinds the cauliflower and makes a healthy pizza crust!”

3. If you’ve been wondering where she gets her style inspo from, she’s super into the fashion of the late ’80s and ’90s club kid scene, telling us, “I would like to model my entire wardrobe after them!”

4. She honestly can’t live without Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, they’re her all-time fave snack.

5. If she could live in the world of the show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and do a musical number with Rebecca Bunch, she would be happy for the rest of her life.

6. She loves working with her Runaways co-stars and feels so grateful for the show. People she would love to work with in the future include Oscar Isaac and Viola Davis.

7. Just like us, she has the tendency to overthink things. “I tend to get obsessive over tiny things and overthink everything,” she admits. “I’m trying to let things be and deal with things as they are in present time and not so much as they are in the million scenarios I’ve imagined in my head.” A skill we’re also working on ourselves.

How to Avoid Being Lazy This Winter

Wintertime is a big ball of fun when it comes to celebrating the holidays, going on vacation and setting your intentions for the new year.

But, once all the December excitement dies down, the rest of the season can be a real drag. Not only do many of us get hit with a case of the “winter blues,” but the cold weather and dark days can make us tired and keep us from being productive.

As people who have certainly struggled in the past with being productive during winter, we’ve made it a mission to change our ways. Keep reading for how to avoid being lazy during the chilliest season.

1. Set Up a Buddy System and Make Yourself Accountable for Your Commitments

The best way to stay on track with your productivity is to have someone along for the ride with you. Whether it’s a sibling who you can wake up early with, or it’s a classmate who you can team up with straight from school, having a partner-in-crime when it comes to getting motivated is the way to go. Between the two of you, there’s no excuse not to push each other to go to the gym, cook up sensible meals or hit the textbooks for those dreaded study sessions. If one of you is slacking, it’s the other’s job to knock some sense into the person copping out.

2. Spend Your Holiday Money on Items That Will Make You Confident or Productive

Dressing cute, eating healthy and working on our fitness are our three biggest hurdles when it comes to this season. Why rummage through all of the old clothes in our closet when we can just wear the same sweatshirt and jeans each day? It’s raining outside and all we want to do is curl up under our comforter and sleep.

That said, we feel so much better when we look our best. That’s why we can’t let the dreary days get the best of us. When it comes to our gift cards and cash that we receive for the holidays, we should anticipate the months to come and invest in items that will keep us happy during the season. Buying a few new staple sweaters and jackets, and a flattering pair of jeans will get us eager to start our days—even when they’re gloomy. Getting a gym membership will force us to to work out and buying a food processor will give us what we need to create healthy breakfast smoothies.


3. Have at Least One Minor Routine You Follow Daily

Whether it’s completing a 20-minute workout video, cleaning your room, making a morning smoothie, meditating or taking a relaxing bath, doing something to enrich your life and make you feel productive at least once a day will naturally make you happier. It doesn’t have to be anything major. Start small, even. But forcing yourself to get in the habit of doing one important thing each day will set the tone for you to do even more.

4. Ask Your Parents to Reward You for Your Efforts

If you’re struggling to focus on classwork during this season or you find yourself late to school on the reg, your parents are probably frustrated with your habits. Whether it’s a slight allowance raise or an extension on your curfew, try to set up some sort of deal with them that rewards you if you get out of your set ways.


5. Remind Yourself How Much Better You Feel After Doing Something Productive

In the heat of the moment, it feels great to forgo working out, eat fast food for every meal and wear the same thing every day, but in the grand scheme of things, how much better do we all feel when we’re putting in a little extra effort? All it takes is one pattern change to enhance our lives for the better. So next time you debate between doing the productive thing and catching extra Zzzs, opt for the former because even though you’ll hate putting the effort in at the moment, you also know the payoff is the real deal!


Winter can be a drag, but if you love fall as much as we do, get in the spirit of the season with THIS incredible playlist.

12 Reasons Why Being Super Short Is Actually the Best

When you’re super short, it can sometimes feel like tall people have it all. They can always see where they’re going in a crowd, and they don’t need to ask for help getting things off high shelves.

But being short has its advantages, too. If you don’t believe us, keep reading.

1. You get way more legroom when you’re traveling, whether it’s on a plane or on a bus or train. The longer the trip, the more of a luxury this becomes.

2. You look younger, which may sound like a disadvantage, but it’s not. Who doesn’t love paying kid prices for a meal or movie?

3. Looking young also makes you seem more innocent, so you can get away with more.

4. When people need to get past you in a row of seats, you can usually just tuck your feet back and let them by instead of having to get up to let them out.

5. You can shop in the regular and the petite section, so you have way more choices than the other shoppers.

6. The longer you can fit into clothes from the kids’ section, the better. They’re less expensive than the adult sections, and they’re getting more and more fashionable all the time.

7. Plus, your size is almost always in stock.

8. Your clothes take up way less space than a bigger person’s, meaning you can pack way more into your drawers. The same goes for suitcases, so you can be prepared for any weather on vacation.

9. Whenever you need help, people are willing to give it to you. They want to grab out-of-reach items, or even give you a piggyback ride.

10. You rarely have to worry about being taller than your crush. Even in heels, you won’t make them look short.

11. It’s harder for you to feel claustrophobic since most spaces will accommodate you.

12. You don’t need as much room as other people to sleep comfortably. A loveseat is all the space you need for a good night’s sleep.

Creative Ways to Tell Your Crush You Like Them

You’re ready to tell your crush how you feel, huh? We’re here for you.

Because we know how agonizing it is to figure out how you’re going to tell them, we figured we’d offer up some suggestions.

Scroll below for seven creative ways to tell your crush you like them!

Make Them a Playlist

Whether you send them a mix of love songs or literally spell out that you like them with song titles, sending your crush a playlist is totally thoughtful and clever. Heck, we’ve even done that work for you by making a playlist you can send them now.


Write Them a Poem

If you really want to show off your creative side, write your crush a little poem. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, but it should get the point across. You don’t want them to be left confused after reading your heartfelt thoughts.

Send a Personalized Snapchat Story

Telling your crush you like them over social media is a whole lot easier than doing it face to face. Instead of sending them a simple text or casual snap, go all out with a personalized Snapchat message. Get crafty with your approach. You can come up with a short story or send them a string of snaps. The choice is yours! Just make sure you send it to only them and don’t post it to your actual story. That would be bad news.


Say It With Food

Not sure what to say? Use food. Send them pizza or a giant cookie that legibly spells out that you have feelings for them and want them to know. The key is to make sure you’re around when they get the food so you can see their reaction. You can do it at school, but that’s a little risky. Delivering it to their house on your own might be the way to go, unless you’ve never been to their home before. That’d be creepy to just pop up unannounced.

Send Them on a Scavenger Hunt

This example is so extra, but if you really, really can’t contain your feelings for them anymore, it’s the way to go. Create a personalized scavenger hunt where finding you is the ultimate goal. You definitely should enlist the help of your friends to make sure this extravagant plan goes off without a hitch.


Create a Meme

Everyone loves a good meme. And if your crush is known for being pretty hilarious, the way to their heart may very well be a meme. Instead of just sending them one, try to create your own. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from your friends. And if you really can’t come up with anything good, feel free to send them one that already exists.


Just Tell Them

This approach isn’t exactly creative, but it is effective. If you really want to know how your crush feels about you, the best thing you can do is straight-up tell them you have feelings for them. You’ll get your answer then and there. It might not be what you want to hear, but at least it’s the truth.

These Zodiac Sign Pairings Make the Best Couples

Some people don’t believe in the zodiac. We are not those people.

We believe that the zodiac offers insight into the type of person you are, as well as the people around you.

One of the best parts about the zodiac is that it knows which sign is your perfect match.

Whether you’re a Sagittarius, Scorpio, Libra or Cancer, the zodiac knows which other sign you should be dating. Keep scrolling to discover which sign complements you best!

Aries (March 21 – April 19) + Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Both Aries and Sagittarius are adventurous, active signs. They’re always honest, though each sign can sometimes be a little bit harsh in their delivery. But they make up for it with the sarcastic and witty sense of humor they both possess. These two will experience plenty of fun-filled excursions together that they’ll remember forever.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) + Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

The pairing of a Taurus and Cancer is about as perfect as it gets. Both signs can be pretty emotional, so they’ll treat each other with the kindness and respect they deserve. When a Taurus and Cancer enter a relationship, both signs lay it all out on the table. They’re in it for the long haul, so no games will be played here. Each sign values family and security, so the other knows they’ll always be protected when their partner’s by their side.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) + Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

A Gemini and Leo pairing is a match made in heaven. Seriously, these two will have a blast together. Both of these signs prefer to spend their days out and about, surrounded by friends and family. No Netflix binge sessions here! They do have a bit of a different approach to life and their overall wants and needs, but both signs are pretty understanding and excellent communicators. There’ll be no shortage of interesting and heartfelt convos.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) + Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

This zodiac pairing is the definition of a power couple. Both signs are incredibly ambitious and will do whatever they can to achieve their dreams. They work harder than any other signs and are totally responsible. They’ll lift each other up and push the other to be the very best version of themselves possible.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) + Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Both intelligent individuals, a Libra and Aquarius will connect quickly mentally. They’ll appreciate that they can have deep conversations about anything with their partner. Both of these signs are also very just and want to make the world a better place for us all. And they’ll work ridiculously well together to do just that.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) + Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

This pairing can learn a lot from each other. A Pisces is a kind and caring individual who always wears their heart on their sleeve. A Scorpio is very guarded and doesn’t trust anyone right away. A Pisces will teach the Scorpio to open up more, while the Scorpio will teach the Pisces how to tell who is and isn’t worth trusting. Once they’ve bonded, this pair will be as loyal as ever to one another.
