Meghan Trainor Brings More Than Thank You To The Iowa State Fair

And her vocals were just the beginning.

Meghan Trainor Brings More Than Thank You To The Iowa State Fair
Nick Nielsen

Meghan Trainor brought out all her talent with her performance at the Iowa State Fair on August 12. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to go to the concert and it was an anticipated show. Meghan was supposed to perform last year at the fair, but due to health drawbacks, the concert had been canceled, which left tons of fans bummed. Meghan is one sincere artist and made sure to have the Iowa State Fair a stop on the "Untouchable Tour." These are my highlights from the night.

Hailee Steinfeld’s Cover

First off, Hailee Steinfeld is an artist that I have followed since her role in "Pitch Perfect 2," and couldn’t wait to hear more of her music. "HAIZ" was a hidden pop gem that deserves more. Let’s just say that I was beyond hyped to see her. Hailee performed all her songs off her EP, "HAIZ", as well as her new track “Starving” and “Flashlight” from "Pitch Perfect 2." The one song that took me by surprise was her cover of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself." Hailee absolutely nailed the vocals on the track and had everyone in the stands singing along. I need Hailee to release a studio cover of that song because it honestly fits her so well.

“Me Too” Dance Break

Meghan Trainor is having a successful summer with her single “Me Too” and her performance of the song was a hit. The song started and the crowd immediately joined in. I had been waiting to see this song performed live all summer, because not only was the performance going to be amazing, but it has a dance break. I love it when Meghan isn’t afraid to throw a dance break in her performances because the girl has moves. The dance break had me shaking my "bass."

Meghan’s Impressive Set list

Meghan truly gave us a Thank You with her set list. Meghan performed all of her songs off of her new album, which I thought was a bold, yet impressive, choice. Meghan also performed some of her biggest hits too that included “Dear Future Husband,” “All About That Bass,” “Like I’m Gonna Lose You,” and “Lips Are Movin.” I was highly impressed with the set list and each song was performed with a great amount of energy from Meghan.

The overall fun, genuine vibe.

The overall vibe of the concert was genuine fun. We could all tell that Meghan gave each song her very best, which brought us all to enjoy the show even more. Meghan had a large screen behind her that brought a sense of excitement and definition to each song which was cool to see. I also was loving her band that was all wearing blue tuxedos. You can leave it to Meghan to always keep it classy, which is appreciated by me as well as her fan base.

Meghan’s Sincerity.

Meghan made sure to make it known how much her fans mean to her. Meghan mentioned numerous times how thankful she was not only for her fans but also her parents. I mean, she also had performed two songs that were about her parents which are featured on her new album. I always knew how genuine and sincere Meghan is because it just radiates from her, but seeing her live only reassured it. Meghan also had a time during her performance of "Thank You" where she brought fans out on stage to dance with her which was heartwarming to see.

Meghan had delivered a phenomenal show in front of over 10,000 people which led to an amazing and memorable night.

Thank You Meghan!

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
