Niall Horan's 'Flicker' Tour

The fandom called and I answered.

Niall Horan's 'Flicker' Tour

So, last week I, a 21-year-old gal, went to see Niall Horan in Charlotte, North Carolina. Years ago when I low key worshiped One Direction (I have since cooled it- a little), I never would have imagined I would be seeing any of them separately, let alone doing their concerts.

Anyway, fast forward to a week ago when my friend and I drove up to Charlotte to see him, and for the first time since 2015, I was feeling those pre-concert hitters that I thought had ended once One Direction decided to go on a "hiatus."

I wasn't sure what I was expecting from Niall's Flicker World Tour, but I didn't think it would be as fun-filled as a One Direction concert.

Guess what?

I was so incredibly wrong. Not only was the entire show filled with energy, but this was also the first time I got to see his personality on stage in full force.

After singing his whole "Flicker" album and five covers (one of them being "Fools Gold" (ask me if I cried. The answer is I did), the concert was over. I didn't feel that same sense of post-concert depression as I had in my height of obsession all those years ago, but instead, there was something warm and familiar about being there among the rest of the people who had done a lot of growing up loving One Direction as I had.

Niall definitely hadn't forgotten how to put on a show and for an hour and a half the whole crowd sang and danced and I think we all got a little emotional when he gave a special shout out to the people being affected by Hurricane Florence- we LOVE a man who cares. Towards the end, he gave us another chance to swoon when he played an unreleased song on the piano (be still my heart am I right?)

Anyway, not to sound too lame about the whole night was just so lovely and it just reminded me of all the beautiful memories I had made going to One Direction concerts over the years.

Also, thanks to my pal Anna for the fantastic photos. If I were still running my One Direction fan account on Instagram, they would be getting all the likes.

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month.
