Reflection of 2014 As Told By a Fangirl

So today is the day that 2014 draws to a close. Happy almost 2015! While it has been an amazing year in many ways, I figured why not focus on the fandom side of things. Instead of answering these questions in relation to my life, since its a fangirl blog, I would answer these questions about the pop culture and my experiences in 2014! No one wants some sentimental thing of me talking about my life…So here is the New Years Eve Tag: Fangirl Edition

1.What one event, big or small, are you going to tell your grandchildren about?

I would tell my grandchildren about the time that Nick Jonas decided to do a photo shoot that basically declared him as a sex symbol. My grandchildren will already know about my obsession with Nick and this story will ad to the overall description of how he has evolved from a shy little boy who would hate to talk in interviews to a man who throws his crotch, abs, and ass around for the world to see.

2.If you had to describe your 2014 in 3 words, what would they be?

Thrilling, Exhausting, Amazing

3.What new things did you discover about yourself?

I discovered that none of my obsessions are a phase considering I am still here after many years and still in love with all of them. 1DAF,  I also discovered that Zayn’s high notes can make my cry at the drop of a hat, and that I cry a lot more now because of how these people have ruined and completely changed my life. And on a more serious note I learned not to give a fuck what people think in terms of what musicians and things I decide to like.

4.What single achievement are you most proud of?

Hmm well I made the A-list of the Kim Kardashian game, and was the best in Rhode Island for the One Direction and One Tree Hill categories. I am really really proud of this blog and how many views it has got in a few short months. I’m also proud of when Nick Jonas favorited my tweet, and finishing Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, and Orange Is the New Black on Netflix. And any day I managed to get up before noon because that’s a struggle.

5.What was the best news you received?

Five things

1. Going to Disney for summer vacation

2. One Direction OTRA tour

3. Taylor’s Album

4. Nick’s Album

5. One Direction’s Album

6.What was your favorite place that you visited in 2014?

DISNEY WORLD, ITALY, FRANCE, SWITZERLAND, GILLETTE STADIUM

7.Which of your personal qualities turned out to be the most helpful this year?

My twitter skills because I was there for literally everything that happened and all the big pop culture news, and being able to find concert tickets on twitter, and my ticketmaster skills.

8.Who was your number one go-to person that you could always rely on?

Update accounts, the credible ones, and my fangirl friends

9.Which new skills did you learn?

How to not care what others think

10.What, or who, are you most thankful for?

I feel I covered this already but just more tours, more VIP opportunities, the people I have met, Harrys manbun, Zayns strand, Louis silly face, Liam and Nialls hysterical tweets, Nicks cockyness, Joe’s instagram, Kevin being my best friend on snapchat. Taylor and Demi and Zoella and all my favs. Basically I am thankful that I get the opportunity to support these people and see them live. Truly Truly Thankful for my opportunities.

11.If someone wrote a book about your life in 2014, what kind of genre would it be? A comedy, love story, drama, film noir or something else?

Well it could be a sad love story where the guy doesnt know the girl exists, it would probably be a comedy because everything was just so funny. But lets just say it would be a documentary because so much happened it wouldn’t fit into a drama. Or we could make it a 3D concert movie that goes behind the scenes of my normal life.

12.What was the most important lesson you learnt in 2014?

To always have a charged phone and that a boyband can ruin your life

13.Which mental block(s) did you overcome?

Dream world vs. Reality, keep them separate

14.What 5 people did you most enjoy spending time with?

Is it five people specifically??? because you know my fave five (Harry, Zayn, Liam, Niall, Louis)

Or in terms of fandom.. Leah, Bella, and Crystal are always a riot

But I love all my friends

15.What was your biggest break-through moment career-wise?

This blog I guess, I never expected it would ever get more than 100 views

16.How did your relationship to your family evolve?

They still don’t get the fangirl thing but they accept it

17.What book or movie affected your life in a profound way?

I recently finished Zoe’s book Girl Online and it was adorable, but I also read the After series… for movies probably the WWA movie because I get to relive the best tour.

18.What was your favorite compliment that you received this year?

I don’t keep track of compliments, but probably someone telling me I was funny

19.What little things did you most enjoy during your day-to-day life?

I loved looking at pictures and saving them to my camera roll everyday. I loved when everyone on my timeline was watching or tweeting about the same thing. And I loved taking naps

20.What cool things did you create this year?

Um I made some cool crafts, and probably this blog and my friendship with Leah

21.What was your most common mental state this year (e.g. excited, curious, stressed)?

Excited/Wonderstruck

22.Was there anything you did for the very first time in your life this year?

Where’s Zayn/ Where Do Broken Hearts Go

30.What was the funniest moment of your year, one that still makes it hard not to burst out laughing when you think about it?

This one is so hard….I really can’t pick. Lets go with when Harry favorited a naughty tweet and he was caught so he favorited a bunch of pictures of kittens and stuff and pretended nothing happened by asking about the weather. Or when Liam asked what Daddy meant, the Steal My Girl video, and the true answer to this isn’t fandom related

31.What purchase turned out to be the best decision ever?

Tickets to OTRA

32.What one thing would you do differently and why?

“Having no regrets is all that she really wants” No reason to look back cause I can’t make any changes

33.What do you deserve a pat on the back for?

Just making it through the year of hot men…there was a lot of overwhelming things and multiple times I said ” I died” but I’m still here so that’s good

34.What activities made you lose track of time?

TUMBLR and of course watching Youtube videos of interviews, funny moments, and my favorite Youtubers

35.What did you think about more than anything else?

One Direction, only because the Jonas Brothers were split and weren’t up to much and One Direction was literally everywhere. Still have so much love for both

36.What topics did you most enjoy learning about?

I love watching interviews and learning more about my favorite celebrities

37.What new habits did you cultivate?

Adding millions of photos to my camera roll, intense multitasking and doing research

Just close your eyes and enjoy the roller coaster that is life – Zayn Malik

39.Did any parts of your self or your life do a complete 180 this year?

Nah, if anything i just loved everything more than the year before

40.What or who had the biggest positive impact on your life this year?

This is pretty self explanatory after reading all these questions, I love my favs 🙂 and having awesome concert seats just makes such an impact. In short, social media.

Wow what a year this has been! I know that most of these sound so ridiculous but I really am at the point where it’s my honest thoughts and it would be stupid to lie. If you do want to see my year as a normal person, with traveling, friends, family, sorority and what not you can see this flipagram

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE SUCH AN AMAZING NEW YEAR!!!

Man Crush Monday of the Year: 20 Men Who Owned 2014

Today marks the last Monday of 2014! Soon it will be 2015 and we will welcome another year full of Monday instagram feeds full of hot men! I’ve compiled a list of twenty men who I feel have made my 2014 or killed the game this year. Ranked from 20 to 1 declaring my Man Crush of the year! Did your fave make my list? Let me know in the comments!!

20. James Marsden

I have loved James Marsden from when I first saw him in 27 Dresses and Hairspray. This year I was thrilled when he got to be the leading man in the Nicholas Sparks movie The Best of Me. With his blue eyes, cheekbones, and perfectly groomed scruff, it’s no wonder why he made my list.

19. John Stamos

Probably the oldest on my list but you have to admit he has aged so well. He still has that Uncle Jesse charm that captured the hearts of every girl in America. I had to feature him for my Little :). If you ever get a chance, follow his instagram and twitter. His use of social media this year is one of the main reasons why he owned 2014.

18. Chris Pine

Last week I was able to see Into the Woods and this guy completely stole the movie. He was the perfect choice to play the two dimensional Prince Charming everyone dreams of marrying. He brought the comedy and his blue eyes would pierce your soul. He also features in Armani commercials adding to reasons he makes girls swoon. This campaign and his dashing good looks in the movie earn him a spot on this countdown.

17. Channing Tatum

Anything he touches is pure gold. 22 Jump Street made me laugh until I cried and who isn’t excited for Magic Mike 2 even if it the storyline will probably suck like the first. He manages to have the biggest biceps I have ever seen but still look polished and put together in formal clothing. If this list was about pouty lips he would be number one but he definitely earns a spot as a man who owned 2014.

16.  Dave Franco

Another great movie of 2014 was Neighbors where Dave and Zac are the leaders of a fraternity that declare war on their complaining neighbors. Dave always shines in these funny movies and you almost forget that he is acting because it is exactly how you imagine him. In my opinion he is the cuter Franco which is why he made the list.

15. Nathan Scott

2014 was the year that I finished binge watching One Tree Hill so of course I would have to include the adorable and ever sexy Nathan Scott on my list. From boyfriend, to husband to father Nathan captivated me as the snobby jock turned good guy. I loved being able to watch him grow and mature as a character and as a man. He definitely owned my 2014.

14. Lucas Scott

Go ahead say what you want but I liked Lucas more than Nathan, could be because of my childhood crush on Chad. I was absolutely devastated after Season 6. (I’m not going to spoil anything but those who have seen the show to this point will know why I was devastated). Lucas was one of the main reasons I really enjoyed the show, second to Brooke of course. Had to include both Scott brothers because they helped make my 2014.

13. Nate Archibald

2014 was a busy year for me because I also binge watched Gossip Girl. Can’t thank that show enough for bringing such beautiful men into my life. Chace Crawford, let alone his character Nate, have earned a spot on this list for their boyish charm, breath taking smile, and puppy dog eyes.

12. Chuck Bass

To top off all these television show characters it has to be Chuck Bass. Anyone who watches the show always gushes about him and his relationship with Blair. Ed made such a convincing performance I didn’t even know he was British until I saw him in an interview. There is no denying that Chuck Bass is the most suave man to ever exist. His guard may be up but that heart full of love and of course his perfect hair lands him on my list of men who made my year.

11. Joe Jonas

I mean I don’t want to be rude and say that Joe didn’t do much this year but its kinda the truth and that’s the only reason he didn’t make it to the top ten. He came back to perform with Demi basically making my life and my 2014. Regardless Joe has been looking gorgeous all year and I love keeping up with his crazy instagrams, snapchat stories and tweets. He found his passion and DJs in famous cities and has had the time of his life this year with all the free time. I’m sure he would love to still be with his brothers, and in a way he is the one I’m most sad about since I don’t know if he will do a solo project because of how Fastlife did…but I would love to see him do a project next year! I think its time he does a rom-com! Doing nothing or everything, Joe will always keep me on my toes.

*disclaimer: Kevin is not on the list because I respect his wife and family and don’t exactly see him as a Man Crush. He is very attractive but I just don’t crush over Kev.

10. Sean O’Pry

Also known as the hunk in Taylor Swift’s Blank Space video. Sean definitely owned 2014 because I have seen him everywhere and nobody talks about the video without mentioning this handsome man. I hope Sean will do more in the future because I sure do love to look at him.

9. Liam Hemsworth

2014 brought us Mockingjay Part 1 which of course brought this heartthrob back to the big screen. In a much larger role than the first two movies, Liam really got to show off his acting chops and his ruggedness. In my opinion the best thing he ever did was end things with Miley. Now he has made a name for himself and I hope will continue to do more projects in the feature. Can’t wait to see what this Australian hottie will do in the future.

8. Zac Efron

I feel as if this needs no explanation as to why he has made my top ten but nonetheless I will fawn over him just like all the other man candy I have featured. Zac was incredible in Neighbors, in fact I can’t name a single movie with Zac Efron that I haven’t liked. He has got the perfect body landing him the prestigious award of best shirtless scene in a movie and continues to pick the perfect projects. Zac will forever be on my Man Crush Monday list and of course the list for 2014.

7. Liam Payne

Okay so the next 2 (5, 6 and 7) were impossible to do because I love One Direction so much and I can’t exactly rank them but I tried my best and even writing this now I’m rethinking my decision. So Liam Payne, what to say about Liam Payne…how about that time he pretended he took a nude picture, or wondered what the word “daddy” meant or talked about “sweet potato and marshmellows?” Liam has such a spunky personality that he never ceased to amaze me this year by what he would say or do. Of course his rock hard abs and looks similar to David Beckham don’t hurt at all. He definitely owned 2014 along with his bandmates for the biggest reason of all: WWA Tour aka the best thing in existence.

6. Niall Horan

The word cute comes to mind usually when I think of the bundle of joy that is Niall Horan, but this year he matured so much that now he has undeniable sex apppeal. Just watching him play his guitar and work the red carpet made him a must have mcm this year. I am in love with his “IDGAF” personality and of course who doesn’t love his laugh. He owned 2014 with his silly answers to interview questions, being the number one fan, and just enjoying every moment of his life. He also killed it on the vocals on this new album sounding sexier than ever.

5. Louis Tomlinson

I don’t know what there is left to say about Louis after my last post for his birthday, but appearance wise I think 2014 was his best year. He really showed off his blue eyes and his cheekbones that could cut through metal. Of course his personality hasn’t changed and he is still one of the funniest guys always making jokes and faces at the camera. His hair has been giving me so many feels and while its hard to compare him to his band mates I think he earned the 5th spot on the man candy countdown.

4. Colin O’Donoghue

Cue the swoons! This guy has made my year but being deadly gorgeous on one of my favorite shows Once Upon a Time. Looking daddy af every single episode made me eager to tune in week after week. This season we even got to see a softer, not so pirate like side of Hook which made me swoon even more. Without a doubt this man has owned 2014.

3. Zayn Malik

I never knew such a gorgeous human being could ever exist. It literally took me an hour to find the most perfect image to use to illustrate Zayn in 2014. He delivered all the way from his insane high notes essential to every one direction song, to his fashion choices aka the Strand. He has the most gorgeous eyes, cheekbones, jawline, hair, I could go on and on. A little part of me dies inside knowing he belongs to Perrie but at least she allows him to be shared with the world. 2014 was a great year all thanks to the beauty that is Zayn Malik.

2. Nick Jonas

Okay so the only reason that Nick is second and not first is because of how he was at the meet and greet, lets just say he wasn’t exactly the friendliest. I still love him and he will always be my number one guy but he just didn’t earn number one this year because he’s gotten a bit too cocky. In 2014 Nick Jonas was the name that everyone was saying. He established himself as a sex symbol with his Flaunt magazine photoshoot, his adult role on Kingdom, and of course his brand new album. Nick worked himself so hard this year constantly promoting himself and his music. Without a doubt this year was a highlight for Nick. I was nervous at first that I wouldn’t see him as much once he broke up the band but he made sure that wasn’t the case. I hear Jealous every day on the radio, he is using social media more than he ever has, and he is constantly being interviewed or photographed for magazines making him runner up for Man Crush of the Year.

1. Harry Styles

Lets be real were any of you surprised that this cupcake would land my number one spot? I also spent so long looking for the perfect picture to post of him that I just had to pick one and move on so if that doesn’t say something I don’t know what does…Harry has completely taken over my life. He is everywhere and I mean everywhere. I always see articles of him. about 50 pictures of him on twitter each hour, constant tumblr posts, and of course his WTF tweets and black and white instagrams. 2014 was the year of Harry Styles. Everyone was talking about him and rightfully so. Yes he has history dating famous celebrities but he is so much more than that. He has a love for pregnant women and children, he visits families of sick children without the media knowing, and he just has the biggest heart. This year I was fortunate enough to see him on tour and interact with him a bit and I can honestly say my 2014 would not have been as amazing as it was without him. He owned 2014 with the new album, the new hair, the new tattoos, and his loving personality.

Did your fave make my list? Comment below!!

23 Reasons to Love Louis Tomlinson

In my opinion, Louis is one of the most underrated members of the band! So in honor of his 23rd birthday, I compiled a list of 23 reasons to love Louis. It was hard to narrow it down to 23 because I just love him so much but I tried my best. Without further adieu, here are my 23 reasons why I love Louis William Tomlinson

1. The song NO CONTROL

I feel like this doesn’t even need an explanation considering it is the most talked about song on the album and it made Rolling Stones list of top 25 songs of 2014! Louis is amazing in this taking the lead vocal making us all question why it took him up until the fourth album to really take control. Without a doubt its my favorite song on the album and I play it at least 3 times a day.

2. The classic Louis funny face

10. How he doesn’t take anyone’s shit

Casual or dressy this boy has style

21. His tattoos

While they boys have their fair share of tatts, I really do like Louis’ random collection

22. His charity work

Hosting charity games, going to visit sick kids, and urging people to donate to causes are just a few of the ways Louis gives back

23. HIS OVERALL PERSONALITY

He just seems like such a great guy, an overall gentleman with a sense of humor to top it all off. I wish I had a Louis in my life

HAPPY 23RD BIRTHDAY LOUIS

Also Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Holidays!

Man Bun Monday: Harry and His Best Friend

Some of you like me, might be sick of the whole Man Crush Monday thing… I mean just how many times can I post a picture of Nick Jonas, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik etc. So I figured its time to get back on this blog and tell you all about just how much I love the man bun! To be honest, I never thought I would enjoy the look of long hair on men, that is until this creature decided it was time to let it grow.

None of us really expected it, he was kind of hiding it behind his various headscarves (which in total probably cost more than my tuition) but then one day he just let it loose and the world was in awe. His perfect head of curls looking shinier and cleaner than ever.

Then it started to get longer and longer, interrupting his performance to the point where he just had to get it out of his face

AND BOOM HIS MAN WAS BORN

Just look at how much it accentuates his jaw!

What we all thought was a one time thing, soon became a very common thing

He would take his bun pumpkin picking

He would take his bun on vacation

On walks of shame

On boat rides

He would jazz it up sometimes with braids

Even add little accessories that could be found at starbucks

This pair of friends would also go to interviews together

Take long walks at night

Sing together

Dance together

Sign books together

And just have an overall great time together

How does he do it we ask?

Here is the unofficial tutorial

Long live the adventures of Harry and his man bun
