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)


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.


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!


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!


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!


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.


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!



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!


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!


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.


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!


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)


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.


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!


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

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!

Embedded image permalink

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!


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!!

Zoe has over 7 million subscribers and makes all sorts of videos ranging from make-up tutorials to hysterical collaborations with all her Youtube friends! I found Zoe on Youtube in 2013, I wanna say it was after the Disney Challenge she did with Tyler Oakley during his collaboration month. Well since then I have been hooked. I watch all her new videos seconds after they are posted, I make life changes to be more like her in terms of doing what makes me happy. And of course since she is gorgeous I have declared her my role model and follow all of her beauty advice. I can’t express how much I absolutely love Zoe Sugg.
