15 Songs I'll Be Adding To My Personalized Playlist On The One Direction 10-Year Anniversary Website

One Direction's 10th anniversary reveal has reminded the world of all the "Little Things" we love about them.

15 Songs I'll Be Adding To My Personalized Playlist On The One Direction 10-Year Anniversary Website

After weeks of anticipation and speculation over a possible One Direction reunion, spawned by Instagram Lives and interviews by the boys, One Direction has FINALLY announced their big tenth anniversary plans.

And for now, there is no confirmed or planned reunion.

I'll admit, I was initially a bit bummed that a reunion concert or even a reunion Zoom call (which we've seen done by a lot of our favorite casts and bands from our childhood) wasn't a part of the big reveal. BUT, it doesn't mean it's not a surprise being saved for July 23.

In the meantime, they still gave us a lot to look forward to! From a video that will include music video clips and behind-the-scenes content to acoustic versions of some of their most popular hits, the One Direction website will be back up-and-running better than ever.

Honestly, though, I think I'm most excited for the user-personalized playlists they'll be unveiling. They'll be curated specially for each user based on how they interact with all the features on the website - from the behind-the-scenes footage to the interactive playlists to the eras the user seems most interested in.

And if these 15 songs are put on my personal playlist, I'll be "Ready to Run" all the way back to the One Direction fandom I grew up in.

1. "Little Things"

I think this song is a given and definitely deserves the number one spot. No matter how insecure 12-year-old me felt, One Direction always made me feel like I was perfect despite any flaws. This song definitely set my expectations high for boys, and I have zero regrets about that.

2. "I Would"

MY FAVORITE SONG! "I Would" is such an underrated One Direction bop, and I will never forget belting it out at the top of my lungs with my friends. And I'm not going to lie, hearing an acoustic version of this song sounds so, so dreamy.

3. "Best Song Ever"

They released this single for their movie, and my friend and I unashamedly cried during the entire thing. This song encompasses all my feelings about how 1D is the "Best Band Ever."

4. "Kiss You"

This classic One Direction song had the most iconic music video over the course of their entire career. All I'm saying is, it better be in the big anniversary video.

5. "What Makes You Beautiful"

The. Bop. Of. The. Century. Yes, it was a bop then, now, and will be for the next eighty years AT LEAST. I love classics and nostalgia and that's exactly what this song is. It was the start of an amazing journey that Directioners are kind of still on...

6. "Drag Me Down"

One of my favorites of the boys' later hits. I definitely still add this to my workout playlists now and again. It has a lot of emotion to it and shows how much the band grew and transformed with their music over the years.

7. "Live While We're Young"

Definitely 100 percent still sing this on the top of my lungs with my friends on road trips. The best part is, when I used to sing it in middle school, daydreaming about my future life in college, those are the moments I imagined. Road trips with friends belting out our favorite throwback hits, which still happen to be One Direction.

8. "Over Again"

Another underrated song from the "Take Me Home" era. I really hope the website picks up on the fact that this is my favorite era, because I NEED to listen to these underrated bops over and over and "Over Again."

9. "Moments"

Watching all my favorite One Direction moments while I listen to "Moments" sounds like the best week of my life (Yes, I expect this to consume my life for a week or two... or maybe even three.)

10. "Story Of My Life"

Iconic. Absolutely Iconic.

11. "Don't Forget Where You Belong"

Another song from the "Midnight Memories" era that makes my heart miss One Direction SO MUCH MORE. This song means a lot to me, though, because while I moved away from home for college, spent a summer in Europe, and have always dreamed of going to a different state post-graduation, my family is always number one to me. No matter where I go and where I end up, I never want to forget where I belong.

12. "History"

I still listen to this song at least once a week. It's just THAT good. And the music video? Practically a preview to what I'm expecting for the tenth anniversary video.

13. "She's Not Afraid"

You won't be able to find a One Direction song catchier than this one, I guarantee you.

14. "Ready to Run"

This was my FAVORITE One Direction song during the "FOUR" era. Dear One Direction website, please, please, please put this on my playlist. I want to put it on repeat for the next hour.

15. "Up All Night"

And last, but certainly not least, I'm hoping to see "Up All Night" on my playlist. This song had me jumping, dancing, and singing at the top of my lungs once upon a time, and I'm so excited to relive those memories and joy once again.

One Direction - thank you for being such a big part of my life. Thank you, in the middle of a pandemic, for still giving your fans so much. I'm counting down the days until July 23rd, just like every lifelong Directioner around the globe!

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.


I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

When "Mean Girls" said "In girl world, Halloween is the one time of the year where you can dress up like a total slut and no one can do or say anything about it," they were damn right. Halloween is the perfect excuse to buy that raunchy costume and show your partner that you're that B. Coming from a very single (yes, very single) 20 something-year-old, I have already got my Halloween costume on lock, and now you will too.

Not only are these 10 Halloween costumes dangerously sexy, but you can wear them in the bedroom whenever you want to give your boo a surprise, yes, year-round. Whoever said you can only dress up on Halloween is seriously disturbed.

Ariana Grande released her first single called "positions" since "boyfriend" with Social House and it is a BANGER. This song is absolutely incredible and I am SURE you will agree with me once you listen.

I'm a sucker for a single with a video and that's exactly what we got. Ariana's been pretty quiet during the pandemic, and we all assumed she was working on some new music, and we were right.

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.
