We can all relate to these hilarious and useful takes on financial fitness.

Listen, I was slow to board the TikTok train, but I eventually had to hop on. I mean, you can't help but get sucked into watching the ridiculous dances and hilarious skits, whether you have an account or you see them on your Instagram feed. I especially love the ones that are super-relatable, include useful hacks or how-tos, and cover issues we all deal with—particularly those related to money.

These top 10 Tiktok stars are Black women who are great at teaching all of us how to get, keep, and increase our coins. Ain't nothing funny about being broke, but their videos will either help you forget about that rent laughing at your bank account balance or give you some tips you can actually use to defeat your money problems for good. (And hey, sis, if you really love TikToks and want to see more of these, share and comment below. We might just make this a recurring feature.)

You know that favorite cousin or auntie who will snatch your debit card away after a day of shopping or invite you to her house for a meal afterward so you won't eat out for the fifth time in a week?

Simone Biles is a decorated U.S. gymnast who captured the hearts of many with her ambitious, yet graceful moves. However, over the past year, fans got to witness another side of Simone after the gymnast began expressing the issues she's faced regarding her mental health. The Olympic gold medalist shocked everyone when she pulled out of some of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, citing "twisties" as the reason.

The relationship we have and nurture with self lays the foundation for how we relate to and connect with others in our lives. Assessing the issues that discourage self-love from prospering are key in order to repair and reignite the freedom that comes when we finally believe the words "you are enough." I chatted with self-love advocate and lifestyle entrepreneur Shelah Marie – who you may remember from when her 2017 photo of doing yoga with boyfriend, rapper Ace Hood, went viral. Shelah's mission is to create a movement of total self-love and liberation for women of color through her platform Curvy, Curly, Conscious – a place where "self-help" meets "real talk" through virtual and offline events and retreats.

The first time I really learned about the five love languages was a year after a big heartbreak in my early twenties, and since then I've found myself exploring the love languages of each of my subsequent partners in an effort to be a better lover to them. At the click of a simple quiz, you'll know whether words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, or physical touch is the primary way you prefer to experience love.

At the start of each season, I browse the net to get an idea of the latest styles and trends to look out for when adding to my closet. When shopping, not only do I love items that are hot for the moment but mainly those that I can keep in rotation year after year. I especially look for styles that are both modern and classic, giving off an effortlessly timeless vibe.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).
