8 Ways We’d Celebrate International Pillow Fight Day, National Caramel Day AND Go For Broke Day



Today’s like a gangbang of pointless holidays and frankly, they’re perfect for a Basica Simpson such as myself. I love sweet treats. I’d opt for a night in bed versus a night out if presented the option. And if you look “broke” up in the dictionary, you’d see my avi, bio and Instagram handle (@letsbeKHAlear, get at me, #teamfollowback #likeforlike #TBTqueen #knowme) right next to the word. So basically…today’s my day, you guys. I’m celebrating all three by writing these here blog posts in my bed in my Howard crewneck with my iPad propped on an accent pillow, listening to Anthony Hamilton’s “The Point of It All” on repeat. Because I’m like, 40. But being the daydreamer that I am, I can’t help but wonder how I’d really celebrate if I had the means and the time. I mean…I’d have caramel, pillows and an unlimited budget. Come on. The possibilities really are endless…along with being soft, sticky and sweet. How are y’all celebrating?
