Girl Crush: Taylor Swift

Long time no see!  Last week I got hit by a crazy migraine that completely knocked me out.  I've gotten a handful of migraines in the past, but I usually just turn off all the lights and go to sleep for a few hours and it feels better or is completely gone when I wake up.  Unfortunately this one started last Sunday and I only felt back to myself this past Sunday (thankfully in time for Easter!).  I was so sad that I couldn't get any posts up while I was sick, and to be honest I'm not really sure how I even put together last Monday's post.  I'm so happy to be back to normal though and will be posting every day for the rest of the week so make sure to check back!

Today we're talking about someone I have a serious girl crush on, and in my opinion the ultimate girl crush: Taylor Swift.  Over the years we've seen Taylor go from country sweetheart to bonafide pop superstar.  Although she is one of the most famous people on the planet she still remains humble and is the type of girl everyone wants to hang out with.  She has so many amazing qualities and I'm going to tell you why she's my current girl crush.

1. She breaks barriers.
At twenty-one Taylor was only the second woman to win CMA Entertainer of the Year twice and at twenty-six she was the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice.  I have a feeling that she will be breaking even more records in the future!

2. She's a girl's girl.
Taylor is known for her amazing girl squad and creating a community of women that support one another.  In addition to this she and her friends do all things girly from birthday parties to baking cookies to shopping and more!

3. She's a good friend.
She has countless friends that are actually her friends, not just "Hollywood friends."  She's always there to support them and help them out.  She is seriously a dream bestie!

4. She stays true to herself.
Taylor does whatever she wants regardless of what people say.  She embraces her quirks and doesn't let the haters stop her from doing her thing.

5. She has amazing style.
Does Taylor ever not look amazing?  Read more about why I love her style here.

6. She is incredibly talented.
She's an amazing singer/songwriter/musician and she can even act.

7. She's close to her family.
No matter how famous she gets Taylor never forgets her family.  She can often be seen with her younger brother, Mom, and Dad.  Family is super important to her and you can tell it always will be.

8. She always has fun.
She's not afraid to goof off and have a good time even in serious situations.

9. She's generous.
Taylor makes countless donations to fans and charities every year.  Additionally, she frequently takes time out of her busy schedule to meet with fans, especially those suffering from illnesses.

10.She kicks ass.
Taylor doesn't just kick ass in her Bad Blood music video, but in real life too.  She doesn't let haters get her down, not even famous ones like Kanye West.  Her 2016 Grammy speech is just one example of this, she slammed Kanye West for his crude lyrics (without actually mentioning him) and took a stand for women everywhere.

So now that you know why I love Taylor and want to be her BFF let me know what you think below!
