Hi everyone! I cannot believe October is already… octover. Yes, I went there. I know I say it every month but honestly, all of 2016 went by so quickly. I guess that’s what happens when you keep busy. But before you know it, the holidays will be here, then New Year’s Eve, and then 2017. Anyway, let’s stop anticipating the future and take a moment to focus on the present. And by that, I mean it’s time for my October 2016 favorites!
October 2016 Favorites
Harry Styles on the Cover of AnOther Man Magazine
I mean, have you seen all the pictures from Harry’s issue of AnOther Man magazine?! Excuse my fangirling but I love Haz so much. He’s so mysterious but also multifaceted. To the point where he can pull off any look. And I love how some of the shots were inspired by classic musical icons such as Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison. Unfortunately, I have to wait for this issue of AnOther Man to hit American magazine stands.
Niall Horan – This Town
First Harry releases photos from his AnOther Man shoot and then the very next day, Niall announces the release of his debut song as a solo artist. The last few months have been very boring because of the One Direction hiatus. Then all of a sudden, the boys do what they do best. And that’s surprise us with no warning whatsoever. But I’m excited because this means more albums and concerts to look forward to!
On the Edge
Last week, my friend Kirsten from On the Edge invited me to be the beauty editor for her online magazine. I gladly accepted the offer because I love what she and the OTE staff are doing. Just like my blog, the girls over at OTE hope to encourage readers to be the best version of themselves and to never apologize for it. Articles are posted every Friday so please follow OTE on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more info and updates. We will be launching the OTE Snapchat soon and I’ll do takeovers for beauty related posts!
The Walking Dead
Season 7 of The Walking Dead premiered on Sunday and I’m still emotional from it. I don’t know if I’ll ever recover from the gut wrenching, gruesome, tear jerking episode. It’s so hard for me to see Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan, especially since I first saw him as Denny in Grey’s Anatomy. I know the episode has been spoiled for so many but I’ll refrain from doing so on here. And that’s all I’ll say about TWD. Just catch up if you haven’t watched it yet!
2016 World Series
People often associate Halloween, autumn, and pumpkin spiced everything with October. But when October comes, I think of something else — postseason baseball and the 2016 World Series! I’m an Athletics fan and it’s been quite awhile since they’ve made it to the playoffs. But baseball is my favorite sport and I still get excited over postseason games, regardless of the team! This year’s World Series is the Cubs vs. the Indians. It’ll be interesting because it’s been well over 50 years since either team has won the World Series. It’s actually been over a century since the Cubs won the World Series. If you think about it, both the Cubs and Indians are underdogs and it’ll be exciting to see who wins.
Those are my October 2016 favorites. I’m ready for November! I just can’t wait to be with family for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The holidays are always a fun time and it puts everyone in a better mood.
