10 Subtle Ways to Channel Your Inner Childhood Obsessions

Ever wonder when its time to stop wearing character themed clothing...well now you don't have to. While it is understandably childish in various settings for a 20-something-year-old to be walking around in a Winnie the Pooh shirt outside, it doesn't mean you should stop channeling your inner child. With these 10 subtle ways to channel your inner childhood obsessions I hope that I can change some people's perspective on giving up their love for their childhood icons and obsessions.

Necklaces and Chokers

Harry Potter Necklace


To start off with, necklaces and chokers are the probably the classiest way to channel your inner childhood love for fandoms and different classic characters. This necklace above is just one of the thousands of pop culture themed necklaces out there to shop for. What is even more interesting is the fact that they are actually small online stores that specialize in making these type of necklaces which I totally recommend any reader interested in maybe picking up a necklace of this sort to look into!


Disney Ears Keychain


This backpack that I have included in this article is actually one that I've had my eye on for months. For those of you who love Nightmare Before Christmas, this may be a perfect addition to your bag collection, and for those of you who don't, I'm sure there is a perfect bag out there for you too! Mini backpacks have been extremely trendy in the apt two years since becoming almost a staple item in people's closet after their debut at music festivals like Coachella. Therefore, incorporating a little geekiness into an otherwise super trendy fashion staple doesn't seem too bad.


Toy Story Mug


Mugs are by far my most favorite thing to collect and when it comes to mugs, the more the merrier. So in other words, if you want to splurge on movie or T.V themed mugs, I completely approve!

Phone cases

FRIENDS phone case


Phone cases can definitely say a lot about a person as everyone in this day and age is constantly on their phones. This Friends phone case is a perfect example of a pop culture themed case that would be age appropriate but fun at the same time. As I'm sure all my readers know phone cases are not to difficult to find, so you can basically check any website for the themed case you are looking for!


Disney Park Socks


Socks, whether they are completely hidden or knee high, they can always manage to tell the world a little bit about you. For most 9 to 5 jobs, wearing bright themed socks is not recommended, however, on the weekends grabbing a quick bite out for lunch or doing errands, I say why not!

Cookie Jars

Stitch Cookie Jar


Blame it on the younger siblings, cousins, or even kids for this one. Character themed cookie jars are really cute and colorful that it only makes sense someone would want to get their hands on one of their preference. For me, I think the Star Wars ones are really awesome but that's just me. Be sure to check online for deals running for cookie jars and even your local stores!

Coffee Maker

Iron Man Coffee Maker


Coffee makers are essentials in almost every household in America, so why not give your mornings a little splash of color with a themed coffee maker. This Iron Man coffee maker is one of the many coffee makers I have seen in stores and online, that are character themed, and I must say they definitely look just as cool in pictures as they do in person!


Snow White Makeup Kit


Themed makeup has actually become quite popular in the past year or two so, incorporating your favorite characters into your beauty routine in beautifully crafted sets such as this one inspired by Snow White should not be problem in germs of style! However, be careful when ordering any of these sets online as you do not want cheap play-makeup coming to your house!


Character Ties


For more laidback occasions character themes ties, without actual faces and slogans, is a really great way in my opinion for anyone to express their love for certain fandoms in an age appropriate yet carefree manner. Ties come in a million different patterns so it should not be a problem snatching up a tie with a few Scooby Snacks or Willy Wonka bars on it for a decent price.

Lotions and Soaps

Mickey Ears Soap


Now last but not least, body lotions and soaps! While these are not so publicly seen by your colleagues or fellow peers, you may want to spice it up by using multiple different soaps such as Mickey and Minnie soaps...just a thought. I actually was gifted a really cute Disney body lotion and I must say they smell just as good or better usually than regular name brand soaps!

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
