Relevant Halloween Costumes That Are Not Ignorantly Offensive

Almost every year around October, people seem to lose their common sense on what is okay to dress up as and what is blatantly not. Sure, there are a lot of touchy subjects, but they are highly easy to avoid. I'm not saying you should never express your opinions, because that would be hypocritical of me, but I am saying, you can restrict yourself from putting on a costume for one night that might hurt someone's feelings. It's really quite simple. But if it's not, here are some ideas to get you started. Disclaimer: not everyone will get your costume if you use one of these.

Kylie Jenner and Stormi: Rise and Shine!

Although this meme has sort of already run it’s course, its a good answer for your 3 person groups costume struggle! One person can be Stormi, one can be Kylie, and one can be the sun!

If you are unfamiliar with these words, head on over to TikTok and educate yourself. This new wave of media stars are easy to dress up as, all you need is a stripped long sleeve, any social media relevant branded shirt, and some quirky accessories.

Your favorite celebrity doing the bottle cap challenge

Extra points if you can actually kick the cap off.

The Kombucha Girl

Treat yourself to a nice kombucha as you memorize her viral video to impress your friends!

David Dobrik giving his friends cars

If you’ve ever watched any of David’s vlogs, you’ve probably seen him someone a car. That’s how often he does it. If you’re interested in this costume, just carry some form of camera around with you as well as a few toy cars to hand out to your friends.

A VSCO Hydro Flask

This could also be a group costume! Wear a monochromatic outfit of one of the traditional bottle colors and your friends can be the others. Add Redbubble stickers to your clothes or a scrunchie around the top of your “bottle”. You could make a handle out of almost any headband

Size 13 men’s Nikes

https://www.buzzfeed.com/ehisosifo1/tall-girl-netflix-funny-tweets

This meme comes from a recent Netflix original movie that people on twitter found exceptionally hilarious. Honestly, just put a Nike check on your shirt and “size 13” on your back.

The Danielle Cohn Harvard sweatshirt video

This very controversial social media stars iconic video is a perfect (and very comfy) way to spend Halloween. You need her iconic Harvard sweatshirt as well as Adidas pants. Then practice her dance routine for hours so you can get the moves just right. I can’t even explain why this video is relevant honestly.

These are definitely not the most well known memes of Fall 2019, however, I can pretty much guarantee that you will not find yourself matching with someone else's costume. Also if someone does know what you are, befriend them immediately.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

If 'Hockey Is For Everyone,' Why Is Matt Dumba So Alone In Fighting For Racial Equality In The NHL?

If the NHL is using #WeSkateForEquality, why is Dumba alone in the fight for equality?

On Saturday, August 1, 2020, the National Hockey League resumed play for the first time since March 12, 2020. The season was paused due to the growing coronavirus (COVID-19) spread and a concern for the players contacting the virus and spreading it through the League. Fans and players sat and waited for the hockey season to resume, which took more than 140 days.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

What Your Favorite Rom-Com Says About You And Your Dream Guy

These movies are always there for us when we need them.

YouTube

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.
