A Full Year’s Dose of Fangirl! Celebrating My One Year Blogaversary

This blog gave me an escape and allowed me to do something I have always wanted to do. In celebration of one year, I decided to make a master post of all my blog posts!

Perfect Music Video Reaction

Hello friends! How are you? I’m doing just fucking fantastic. You know, just trying to live life and Harry, Liam, Louis, and Niall just aren’t letting that happen. On Tuesday we were blessed with a brand new music video! I fully expected this video to drop late on Thursday like Drag Me Down but then they decided to throw everyone off and release it AT A REASONABLE HOUR!! .

I spent the day at work alternating between entering numbers and checking Twitter as one does, and saw lots of tweets about the Perfect music video premiering that day. Now no offense to update accounts and whatnot, but I usually don’t believe a damn word they say without any receipts. So for the few times they do have proof it’s great! Well anyway I expected this to be just a rumor, so much has been going on with this fandom and rumors so I just mentally added it to the list of things that won’t happen. Then all of sudden, checked Twitter again..and it was a FLOOD of black and white gorgeous photos of these boys. That’s when I knew something was up! After saving each one to my camera roll and doing more work I checked Twitter again and what’s this!?! Snippets of the video!!! Now you might hate me for this but I don’t really care about leaked stuff because I believe in instant gratification, so of course anything that leaks, video or songs, I will not hesitate to listen or view it. I spent my lunch break replaying and replaying these snippets. I could do an entire post just on how much I love this song (stay tuned) but this will be more of my reaction.

Fast forward through the day and I’m counting down the minutes till 7 o’clock. After the Liam drama and people thinking he had brain cancer and the band was breaking up and all the crazy things people conspire about…I truly didn’t think it was going to happen..but I checked anyway! Right at 7 I popped over to Vevo and hit play just as Louis tweeted about it. What you are about to read are my reactions to the video the very first time I saw it. Major warning: I’m a HUGE Haylor shipper and yes the song IS about her so I will most likely talk about it for certain parts. For your pleasure I have included just about every gif I could find of this video. Enjoy!!!

Here we have Niall looking into the distance day dreaming about what life will be like without his boot. LOVING the black and white

WAS NOT READY FOR THAT CLOSE UP OF LIAM! Yes boy work that hand tat like the model you are!

Okay why can’t I see Louis face..he already has the smallest part in this song and now the song is blocking those gorgeous cheekbones.

The camera work in this is so great, it feels so artsy and mature. This is what I imagine it’s like to be stuck in a hotel room all day, you just sit in the window staring down at the city below you


I wanna be, where the people are, I wanna see, wanna see them dancing!


Alright if Liam is showing us a picture why did the camera never focus

Do you think Niall has smelly feet?

Harry looks so fucking good in that window, his height his body, I don’t know but that window was made for him to stand in

I feel like I was just slapped by Louis and I couldn’t be more honored

Liam is all about having no personal space this is great

Niall practicing his putting in the hotel room! Why am I not surprised!!! Trying to make up for that swing at the masters

Here we have Harry wondering if he left the stove on, or thinking about what new fall flavor of Froyo he should get

I suggest pumpkin, its my favorite 🙂

HARRY EDWARD STYLES WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO THAT HOTEL WALL! WHAT ARE YOU WEARING

His hair is so long my god

THEY DID NOT JUST SHOW HIM SAYING RENDEZVOUS!!! This is too much to handle considering that part makes me melt every damn time

Causing trouble in hotels rooms means making a mess of the bed? I thought they would make a mess of the bed in another way….


And you know that Harry spent a good five minutes apologizing to each hotel employee after the damage was done.

DID YALL JUST SEE THAT VINE TATTOO???

No?

Let me give you a little close up

Liam will have a modeling contract by the end of this video, he is just simply sitting in the window and using those puppy dog eyes and I’m on the edge

Wow Harry such a rebel, throwing books! How dare you?!

MORE HALLWAY ACTION IN THE SUIT!!

Ugh the things I would do to be hugged by Liam Payne with such a big smile on his face

IS HE HUGGING SOPHIA??

Is the brunette Sophia? The girl almighty in the flesh??

It’s not Sophia who the heck is she??

This is so cute I don’t know why I’m tearing up over four friends sitting at a table conversing and drinking tea..

Also obsessed with how Harry talks with his hand, if you’ve been paying attention to promo season you know what I mean

YES NIALLL IN THE HALLWAY!! What a man!

Harry is so aggressive towards the camera I love this

LOUIS!!! Loving this close up as he tells me I’m perfect

Harry covering her face, he definitely did that for her safety, hide the pitchforks we don’t even have a suspect

Harry stop it I’m done with you

Niall strumming yes this is the shit I like

Niall looks so sexy, not cute, sexy, this is a break through

Oh that passion in the hallway NIALL WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME

HARRY DANCING IN HIS SUIT! Is this how he tries things on? Please tell me he goes into dressing rooms and tests his clothes out by dancing in them

This video is so authentic, it’s just the four of them doing what they love in their spare time. They aren’t acting, it’s so candid. Harry loves fashion and dressing up and journaling, Niall loves playing golf and his guitar, Liam and Louis are inseparable and love playing a bit of footy and trashing the damn place. It’s just authentic and raw and I’m not over it.

Ayyyyyy security looking good

Niall is working these hallway shots

Harry looks so cute getting ready

just look at his hair

And his smile

And half his nipples

We are getting closer and closer to Liam each time I’m not prepared for his

Here is Harry thinking he’s so funny but..wait he actually is..this kid always has me laughing

LOUIS KICK ME IN THE FACE

Louis is so moody

Looks like Harry made the bed cuz he felt bad

Liam throwing that bag at Louis is One Direction throwing all this shit at us. An actual representation of how I feel after this video

I’m not even done but it’s

FUCKING

ME

UP

I’m literally waiting for this video to end with them getting kicked out of the hotel and having a laugh about it

MAYBE A CAMEO FROM MR. MOSEBY

Wait I’m getting scared… The break down is coming and I haven’t found one reference to Taylor yet

LILO IS SO ALIVE!

This can’t be sanitary

HARRY STYLES YOU STOP RIGHT NOW

actually keep going I’m loving this

Hold on this kitchen looks familiar, what hotel is this anyway..

Wait a minute

THATS THE KITCHEN FROM NIGHT CHANGES!! No no no they didn’t

YES NIALL IN THE HALLWAY

Real talk though what about the other guests of the hotel…were they told they can’t leave their rooms? How was it possible.

Niall looks so fit I can’t

Here comes the passion! I love when Harry makes this face, sing your heart out love!!

WHAT ARE THOSE CLOUDS!!! THIS IS LIKE THE STYLE VIDEO!! THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TRIBUTE TO TAYLOR SWIFT I HAVE EVER SEEN!!

HAYLOR RISE

Harry fucking styles is laying on a fucking bed having a proper strop about his emotional life and all I wanna do is lay next to him and play with his hair.

Jokes aside this video is breathtaking. That one scene alone is so beautiful and raw and meaningful and I will never stop talking about it

THE EYES!!! Why is this so much like Style!!!

He is so beautiful, just sitting on the edge of the bed and my fucking panties are across the room

Is he crying?!?! YOU STARTED CRYING BABY I DID TOO

LIAM JUST CASUALLY GETTING A TATTOO WHY AM I SO TURNED ON

Aww he’s still laying on the bed thinking about their love I can’t this is too much

Harry laying on a bed just puts all sorts of thoughts in my mind…I’m very overwhelmed right now

YESSS THEY ARE ALL SINGING TOGETHER!!

Okay well how many times is Harry gonna fix his hair

Liam wins he is playing up this camera any chance he gets

Louis in that sweater though so damn cuddly

DYING AS HE POINTS TO HIMSELF AND SAYS HER PERFECT!!

NOOOO ITS OVER!!

You know what that means

Refresh not Replay

Well that was quite an experience, I really really like this video. I think it’s the most honest one and it really shows what these boys do and who they are. It felt so candid and special but at the same time it was very artsy and moody and brooding. The theme of the song was evident and was conveyed but it wasn’t like a story telling video. Well done boys!!!

I am not ready for this album

A Fangirl’s Guide to Fall: What New Things to Expect This Season 

Music, tv shows, and books, oh my! Everyone is saying how much they love fall because its sweater weather, and everything is pumpkin flavored, and you can wear leggings and boots and listen to the crunch of leaves. While the leaves might be dropping to the ground, they aren’t the only thing that’s dropping. How about all the new music, books, and television shows that are about to change your life?? Last fall Taylor, Nick Jonas, and One Direction dropped their albums and boy was it a time to be alive!! My top three favorite artists all dropping albums within weeks of eachother! It was the perfect pick me up to the hum drum college schedule where you start to hate just about every class. It was the perfect escape and now its happening again! In this post I’ll go over what new things to expect this fall and what I’m excited for!!

Just about everyone and their mom are dropping their album this fall. I’m so excited because its so many of my favorite artists. Its like Christmas! (or whatever holiday you celebrate)

CONFIDENT-DEMI LOVATO

Demi is set to release her fifth album on October 16th! Which is seriously only a week away!! I can’t wait for new Demi music even though I was kinda less than thrilled with Cool For the Summer. With her strong love for Wilmer I didn’t understand why this single was about her hooking up with a female but hey its edgy and thats her thing. I’m disappointed this album has no duet with Nick since they always tease about writing together but with their new joint music label SafeHouse, maybe we will get an entire CD of Nemi duets! Either way I can’t wait for this album and I can finally settle my craving for new Demi music.

SWAAY-DNCE

This week Joe Jonas and his band DNCE announced that they are releasing an EP on October 23rd! If you read my last post you’ll know how much I have been loving their hit single Cake By the Ocean so you can guess just how excited I am for this EP!! DNCE have been doing little performances in the New York area and are set to perform at a few Jingle Balls but with only one song I was wonder what would they sing? Turns out they have a few tracks and I can’t wait to hear them. I don’t think you understand how much I have missed Joseph the past two years and just how excited I am for him!

SOUNDS GOOD FEELS GOOD-5 SECONDS OF SUMMER

I have a strange relationship with 5 Seconds of Summer. I don’t consider myself to be a fan of theirs, but then I find that I know every single song on their last album and that I got a 9/10 on a buzzfeed quiz about their lyrics. I think I feel too old for them but at the same time I do really like their songs, I’m just not a big fan of the actual humans I guess. I like Ashton and I like Luke’s butt and I refuse to believe that Calum isn’t Asian and that’s basically my relationship with 5 Seconds of Summer. Take it how you will haha. BUT I am excited for this new album. I do enjoy She’s Kinda Hot and lets be honest their music is so catchy so I’m sure after I’m done listening to the DNCE Ep that I’ll be enjoying their tunes also dropping on October 23rd. Definitely going to be too much to handle in one day!

GET WEIRD-LITTLE MIX

I am so so so excited for this album! If you read the last post you know how obsessed I am with Black Magic. I love their song Hair which strangely came out right around the Zerrie split, and I never stop singing Love Me Like You. These girls are going to take the world by storm when their album drops November 6th. I hope they get so much radio play and that the album goes number one and that they just explode. They are so talented I mean HELLO they won the Xfactor! I cannot wait to hear this album and I’m PRAYING that they will tour! Still upset they canceled the last tour I think its time they make it up and perform all these new songs live. If they tour I am going to be so lit for Black Magic y’all don’t even know!

JUSTIN BIEBER-PURPOSE

You know that thing I have with 5sos.,I kinda have that with Justin Bieber too. I say I’m not a fan because I have pledged my allegiance to the Jonas Brothers. TBT to that time when twitter was just one big fight about what JB truly stood for. Spoiler alert: it stands for Jonas Brothers. Well anyway funny story, Justin Bieber was the 6th person to ever follow me on twitter. I have no fucking clue how it ever happened but he has been following me since day one. Sometimes I feel like I owe it to him to be nice to him and thats probably how I ended becoming a casual fan right from the beginning. You bet your ass I saw Never Say Never the day it came out. I literally rushed to the movie theater after swim practice so I could get a pair of purple 3D glasses. I have always enjoyed his music but not to the extent that I have full albums. In fact, I don’t think I have ever listened to a full Justin Bieber album (but with Apple Music I just might). This album is Justin’s comeback and the world will be watching and listening, including me! This album comes out November 13th.

MADE IN THE A.M. – ONE DIRECTION

Sound the alarm because not only will November 13th be the comeback of Justin Bieber, its also the premiere of One Direction’s fifth album, you know that last album before their hiatus, you know the first album to completely not include Zayn….TALK ABOUT DRAMA!!! At first I was overcome with excitement. Every One Direction album has been life changing, they always start a new era where amazing things happen so I couldn’t be more excited. You know how much I love this band and these boys and their music and I can’t even control myself trying to write this post right now because I’m so fucking excited. Then once it was revealed its Justins album day my heart sank. All I wanted was for One Direction to dominate the charts. I wanted us to band together to make this their best album release yet and shatter all sorts of world records and just give them every amazing thing they deserve. Now I’m so nervous. As a fandom we have a legacy to uphold, these boys have broken so many records that I would hate for them to break the chain just because they have to share the day with another talented artist. I want it to go number one so badly and I’m truly praying it will. But if it doesn’t…at least nobody can drag them down!

SO MANY ALBUMS AND SO MUCH TIME! BUT THAT’S NOT ALL THAT FALL HAS TO OFFER!!

BINGE-TYLER OAKLEY

Need a break from all that music, try reading a book! Youtube sensation and self proclaimed professional fangirl Tyler Oakley has his first book coming out October 20th! Tyler is such an entertainer and I feel like his novel will have so many amazing stories and bring me through all the emotions. I can’t wait to laugh and cry to this book reading about Tyler Oakley’s insane life. I feel like it will be his videos on steroids and I cannot wait!

GIRL ONLINE ON TOUR- ZOE SUGG

That’s right, the Queen of England herself, Zoella, is releasing her sequel to her best selling book Girl Online on October 20th. I know youtubers have been writing tons of books lately but this is actually a BOOK. Zoe has written a fictional novel and its the most adorable thing I have ever read. I got the first book, GIRL ONLINE, for Christmas last year and I just couldn’t put the story down. Its such a cute story about a girl named Penny who meets this boy Noah who turns out not to be who he says he is. From the title of this book I’m guessing you can tell what Noah just might be. It’s better than a fanfic let me tell you. I’m just so proud of Zoella and all she does, literally everything she’s ever done, and I can’t wait to support her more and find out more about Penny and Noah. I just wish she did an American book tour! The things I would do to meet her!

KINGDOM

Mark your calendars if you are ready to see more of Nick Jonas shirtless, sweaty, and in control because KINGDOM IS BACK on October 14th! Of course I watched the show for Nick Jonas, but I found myself actually loving the show beyond his character. I’ve never been one for a dramatic show but this series presented something to me that I had never seen before. The family dynamic is so interesting and I had no clue what goes into UFC fighting. Not a show I expected to like but I really really did! I don’t have DirectTV so I’ll find some way to watch it like I have in the past but I cannot wait for another great season!

Gossip Girl meets One Tree Hill meets Princess Diaries is how I would describe this amazing show! It’s all about the scandal of royalty as they engage in partying, cheating, killing, and the possibility of the monarchy no longer existing. This show has everything you could ever need and keeps you on the edge of your seat! It’s created by the creator of One Tree Hill which initially drew me to the show. This series returns on November 15th on E! Network

Now be honest…HOW EXCITED ARE YOU FOR FALL! Tell me what you’re most excited for! Music, Books, TV?? Anything I left out! Let me know!

September Favorites

As a person who spends hours a day watching Youtube, I decided why not try something out that every Youtuber loves to do: a monthly favorites!! So during September I jotted down a few things that I absolutely enjoyed.

MUSIC

Cake by the Ocean-DNCE

So about a week after I met Joe Jonas at his party at Foxwoods

he revealed to the world that he has new music!! Kinda upset he didn’t tell me about it but its fine we’re cool. This month I discovered “my new favorite band,” After watching teasers and seeing tweets about “your new favorite band” I was dying to know what Joe Jonas had up his sleeve. Turns out he is the lead singer of a brand new band called DNCE and they were releasing their new song!! If you haven’t listened to it yet, I highly recommend it!! It has a cool Uptown Funk feel and its Joe Jonas! I’ve missed Joe so much and while I enjoy his instagrams and snapchats, nothing beats getting to hear his voice again and see him perform! I honestly believe that I would enjoy this song even if it didn’t involve Joe Jonas. The only downside to it is that it leaves me with an endless craving for cake…have a listen!


 Infinityyyyy-One Direction

Picture this, its a normal day in the office, you have to meet with another staff member to discuss something, you get back to your cubicle, and right as you sit down you get a little blue notification just casually showing a tweet from One Direction about their new album. UM WHATTTT!! A NEW ALBUM!! ALREADY!! That’s right, brace yourselves because on November 13th, One Direction will release their fifth studio album!! Oh and it wasn’t just an album announcement, those cheeky chaps included a new song when you preorder the album! The single Infinity was released and basically had me in tears. Unfortunately it was such a busy day in the office that day but do you think that matters?? I grabbed my headphones, mentally prepared myself to not have a fangirl freakout a work, pressed play, and fell in love.

To be honest, I still haven’t gotten over Drag Me Down so I was not at all ready for a new single. I was still very fragile because OTRA USA had just ended and this song was the last thing I needed. I instantly fell in love with Niall’s opening verse, and actually jumped when Harry came in for the chorus. I was not expecting the intensity and passion he brought to the song. The lyrics themselves are enough to make you cry, but sung by the voices of four angels and I’m a goner for sure! If this song is the slightest taste of the new album I think we are in for a real treat. IS IT NOVEMBER 13TH YET I NEED MORE!


All To Well-Taylor Swift

Alright before you all start telling me how this song is old let me just tell you I haven’t stopped listening to it all September. I have always found this song to be amazing and one of the best on the album RED. I was teary eyed when she sang it on the RED tour and since the explosion of 1989 it had been a while since I revisited it. I don’t even know what it is about this song, since its not like I have some love story to relate it to, but it always makes me want to sob. As you may know I am a recent college grad trying to get a hold on this thing they call adult life. It hasn’t been the easiest transition and I have my good days and bad days but this one lyric in this song just hits me so hard and I think thats why I gravitated towards it all month.

“I’d like to be my old self again, but I’m still trying to find it.”

Leave it to Taylor to always just get you and what you’re going through.


Black Magic-Little Mix

I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS SONG!!! I know it came out before September but I have just fallen in love with this song, with this band, with everything. I’m a pretty big fan of Little Mix, I have their two albums on my iPod and I had tickets to see them before they canceled their American tour. Luckily I was able to see them with Demi. Now I’m not going to lie and say Zayn had no impact in me deciding to listen to Little Mix but I’m glad he did. These girls can sing, especially Perrie. Vocally she is the Zayn of Little Mix, they always give her the long notes to sing and boy does she deliver. These four girls are so talented and its a shame they aren’t more popular in the states and that Fifth Harmony is… (not a fan..soz). This song though helped put them on the map and hopefully their album will really make them known!! The best part about this song is when they perform it live because it has the cutest little dance. Just Watch!


Shawn Mendes

There’s this cool thing called Apple Music, I’m sure you’ve heard of it. It lets you listen to anything on Itunes for free with the three month trial. I’m telling you now you better start the trial because so much music is coming out this fall that with three months you’ll get to listen to it all for free. However if they are a favorite or yours buy the songs and pay their bills. People like Niall Horan, actually appreciate it 🙂 At work I get to listen to music to pass the day, and I get tired of the same old thing. After I listen to Infinity, Black Magic, or Cake by the Ocean for four hours straight, its time for a change. One day I decided to just listen to Shawn Mendes album. I heard his song Stitches and Life of the Party on my Nick Jonas Pandora station, and I really enjoyed his set during 1989. His album did not disappoint. He’s like a mini Ed Sheeran. I love his voice and I really like the song Something Big. He can rap he can sing and he may be 17 but he’s a cutie pie!


Halsey

Last but not least is Halsey. I’ve been trying to get myself to start trying new things and Halsey was on that list. I see her name every now and again on my timeline and I figured why not give it a go since I can listen to her album for free on Itunes. I never expected to every like her album as much as I did. I just started listening to it on Monday and I listened to it non stop every single day at work over and over again. I usually don’t like songs about getting high and whatnot but I really really really enjoy her music. My favorite songs are Hold Me Down, Control, and Gasoline. I can’t get over how I truly didn’t expect to enjoy her music at all but I find myself constantly going back to it, even now writing this post I’m jamming to Badlands. Just goes to show you never know what can happen until you give it a chance. (Also will someone in the comments please tell me how to pronounce her name, is its Halsey like a Hallway or Halsey like Halle Berry)



Television 

Bachelor in Paradise

I watched Kaitlyns season and I enjoyed watching a lovey dovey reality show on a Monday night so I figured why not watch the spin off? I’m glad I did because I got to see Jade and Tanner fall in love and get engaged. They were my favorite couple the entire series and I almost cried when the previews kept hinting that maybe they wouldn’t make it to the end. Luckily they did and he proposed and it was so magical! I love them more than Kaitlyn and Shawn and wish them nothing but happiness in their life together! Jade and Tanner are also so adorable on Instagram, I really hope their relationship stands the test of the time and they make it to their wedding day.


Big Brother

This season was rather disappointing because one person ran the whole game but at the end of the day I was happy with the winner. I liked Steve from day one, he was the ultimate underdog. He is a superfan so he has studied every single player’s game and I knew that he had enough knowledge to take himself to the end. While Liz was a good competitor, she helped get all those jury members out so at the end of the day, it would have been stupid for Steve not to win. This show was on all summer but I figured since it ended in September why not throw it in my favorites


Scream Queens

After last weeks episode I don’t think I can call it a favorite, but the pilot was so amazing. Add a show about sororities, famous faces, humor, college, and Nick Jonas and you have my dream come true. I love anything Nick Jonas so of course I was gonna tune in to support and surprisingly I wasn’t let down. I usually hate all things horror but I managed to make it through all of Pretty Little Liars so I figured why not try out Scream Queens since its more satirical if anything. Nick completely stole the show for me. It was obvious that they wanted him to attract an audience in the first episode since they had him in his underwear and working out practically the whole time.

I was disappointed with the second episode but I’m still going to tune in every Tuesday. If you haven’t yet I would give it a try and we can talk about it together!


Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders

This show has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. It makes me feel absolutely terrible seeing these girls who are much skinnier than me being let go from the team because they don’t look good in the uniform. I love watching this show because they give you people to root for, you get to watch everyone’s journey. I also love the dances and the music. One episode they were doing a photoshoot and all of a sudden I hear Steal My Girl then directly after they played Jealous. When they auditioned the routine was set to Move by Little Mix. This show also has a makeover episode which I have always loved since the first days of top model. It fits right in with the other reality tv I watch and I’m so happy it was back for a 10th season.


Empire

This is another instance of trying something new. I came into work one day and my co-worker who knows I love One Direction and Taylor Swift and all the rest, asked me if I watched Empire. I told him no and then he proceeded to tell me why its such a great show and that he thinks I would like it since it has to do with the music industry. I rarely watch any dramas on tv and I knew it was only one season to catch up on so I figured why not give it a try. In the past I have won awards for my binge watching abilities. (This is a true fact I won this award in my sorority after spending 2 months watching all 9 seasons of One Tree Hill). So I sat down a week ago on a Sunday afternoon and started watching. The next new episode was on Wednesday so I had limited time to make it. Of course I managed just fine because this show is so addictive, so good, it ends on endless cliff hangers, and you are just dying to know what will happen next. I love Jamal and Cookie and I think the Lyon’s have such an interesting dynamic. I also love the music on the show and truly just everything about it. I’m completely caught up and season 2 just started meaning the fun doesn’t have to end!


Random

Liam Payne’s Hair

Liam has been looking so fine lately. He emerges from night clubs looking as if he hasn’t even partied yet and his hair looks so amazing. It’s a favorite of this month for sure. Just looking at him would make anyone scream Daddy

Embedded image permalink


Sophia Smith

Sophia is super private but every now and then thanks to Lottie and Andy and Liam we get to see a little glimpse of her life. This girl is so beautiful I wish we knew more about her. I’m so happy for her and Liam because she is such a princess and I’m currently just obsessed with her


Joe and Gigi

At first I found it weird that someone from Taylor Swift’s squad would be dating one of the famous Taylor ex’s but I am completely for it. I’ve watched Gigi on housewives since the start and obviously I know everything there is to know about Joe so I couldn’t be happier for them! I love when she’s on Joe’s snapchat or he’s on her instagram. The two are so in love and they are simply just so adorable.

Harry’s Gold Boots

(went to find a pic of them on twitter and found this one…then realized it was from my own tweet)

This is more of an all time favorite but since its my first favorites I figured why not include them. I am obsessed with these boots. I don’t know what it is about them but he wears them so well and they always look great with his outfit. I also feel he has a little bit more pep in his step when he wears them and goes a little more crazy on stage. I am so in love with them. He has a heart of gold and boots to match. If anyone can find a cheap pair of gold boots let me know because I desperately want them. I could write an essay about those damn gold boots.


My love Zoe on Seventeen!

Again its no secret that Zoella is everything I want to be in life. I was so happy when I saw her on the cover!! It’s strange to see her go a bit mainstream but its so nice at the same time because she deserves the world! I loved her article and she looks so gorgeous in the spread. Yay team internet! I guess in terms of favorites she goes on the list for All Time Favorite Female Celebrity


Super Fruit

Speaking of Youtubers and trying new things, I gave Super Fruit a try! I had seen some of their videos from when they collab with people I already watch (Tyler, Mamrie) but I haven’t watched a ton of their stuff. One day I just kept clicking from video to video and found myself laughing along and really enjoying their content. The two are so funny and I have so much more to catch up on that I look forward to doing so.


My Disney loves Reunite

Vegas. Nick Jonas. Demi Lovato. Joe Jonas. Sounds perfect to me! The group reunited at the Iheartradio music festival where they each supported eachother’s sets and took adorable instagrams. Nothing makes me happier than seeing they are all still such good  friends!


Concerts

My last favorite of the month of September was getting to see Nick Jonas, One Direction, and Ed Sheeran in concert. I plan on doing individual posts for these concerts this month because I really want to have a memorium of them that I can look back on and I think it would be a fitting thing to blog about. I have so many potential posts in the works so keep your eyes peeled!


What were some of your favorites this month? If you made it the end of this post tell me your current favorite song, favorite tv show,  a new artist I should listen to, and a random favorite! Can’t wait to read your responses. Enjoy October!!

10 Signs You Have Found Your Fandom Friend

You might be reading this because her twitter brought you here since its now revealed what this post is, but in case you don’t know… TODAY IS MY CHUMMY’S BIRTHDAY!!! I’m a huge believer in making everyone’s birthday super special so I decided to make this post highlighting the best parts of having her as a fandom friend and she had no idea about it until now. SURPRISE MICHELE!! HAPPY BIRTHDAYYY!!

Once upon a time in early February, I came up with an idea to dedicate an entire week of this blog to posts about Harry for his birthday. Back then I was a full time student and I knew doing 7 blog posts in one week in addition to my other classes and assignments would be a handful. While you may know that I am not a fan account on twitter, I have made quite a few friendships with other fan accounts. I figured why not enlist some of the biggest Harry girls to be guest writers on my blog. I immediately thought of my now very good friend Michele, since we would tweet back and forth about any and all things One Direction and occasionally Zoella. It was then that we exchanged numbers to discuss the blog and the rest was history. Looking back on it now, I can’t imagine my life without Michele. It sucks that we live kinda far away and have yet to meet in person, but sometimes it doesn’t even feel like its a long distance friendship.

Let’s be honest, the best part about being involved in a fandom is the friends you make along the way. Where would we be without our go to person to ride with us on the crazy rollercoaster that is fangirl life. When all your regular friends want to punch you in the face anytime you mention something your celebrity is up to, who do you turn to let it all out since you would combust if you held it all in and couldn’t tell a soul? We need our fandom friends to survive, to vent to, to freak out with, and most of all, to enhance our fandom experience. Here are some reasons we love our fandom friends 🙂

1) Mornings aren’t as much as a drag because you usually wake up to a text about the latest news or pictures in your fandom.

Waking up early for work sucks, but you know what makes it great, waking up to texts of OTRA HQs, paparazzi pics, or the news that One Direction dropped a brand new single over night!! Without fail, I either catch Michele up on what happened over night or vice versa

Mornings look a little something like this

2) You usually text in all caps lock and can somehow read the failed autocorrected messages

Conversations are usually a mess of caps lock and mispelled words and just utter chaos. When something new happens they are the first person you wanna tell, and with high emotions it usually ends up like this

You know you are a true fangirl if you can decipher these type of messages

3) Drunk texts about the fandom are always acceptable and most times sober thoughts 

Nothing like a little alcohol to get you and your fandom friend saying the most ridiculous things about your favorites, things a sober you would never admit or say aloud.

If only they knew what we were saying hahahha
4) When you aren’t texting, you are tweeting them, liking their instas, or snapchatting them

A fandom friend is a guaranteed like on insta, favorite on tweets, and usually in your top snaps


5) They serve as an open forum for any and all questions pertaining to fandom

Want to know what emoji’s you would use if the boys were a saved number in your phone? Wanna know how others would rank them by dick size? Wanna compare theories for why Zayn left the band? Look no further than your fandom friend.

Michele and I ask the strangest questions…but thats what makes it so fun!
6) They are there when something makes them cry and they need to vent right away

When that song comes on that makes you cry, when the Zayn Pain hits, the PCD sets in, or you’re having a really bad day remembering how impossible it is to ever meet your fave, your fandom friend is there to comfort and commiserate with you


7) You have hysterical inside jokes pertaining to your favs or past life events

For the record Calum Hood is NOT Asian….shocker I know!
8) You communicate from morning to night, sometimes even sleep on the phone together

It was maybe a little over a month into our friendship when Zayn left, Michele and I practically facetimed the whole day…and night…yeah we slept with facetime on just because it was such an awful day and we didn’t want to be alone

I was trying to go back through my messages to find some good proof for this post but my phone always freezes because there is just too much to go through
9) You can rely on them when real life events happen to put the fandom aside for a while and just talk about you

From graduation, to getting a job, to hating our jobs, and starting a new semester, always there no matter what, to be normal friends in addition to fandom friends


10) You laugh so hard at everything they say in your conversation that people think you are crazy

Conversations can get pretty wild, I would cringe if people saw half of the things we say, anyone would think we are completely mental but hey, at least we are crazy together

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHELE!! IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW HOW INCREDIBLY HAPPY I AM THAT WE ARE FRIENDS NOW YOU DO!! THE LOUIS TO MY LIAM, MY CHUMMY, AND MY BEST FRIEND I WISH YOU NOTHING BUT HAPPINESS!

If you found this relateable. share this post with your fandom friend to show them how much you appreciate them!
