One week til Christmas!
Hopefully you have gifts sorted out, stocking hung up, lights turned on, tree looking extra snazzy, ugly sweater hanging up, cookies waiting for Santa, fireplace lit, cookies baking and holiday music playing because we are one week away until the happiest day of the year — Christmas! [4uroras]
Well it’s 2012..
You’d think by now, children would be able to text Santa what they want for Christmas. As sad as it sounds, who wants to sit down and write with a pen and paper? It seems as though even my youngest cousins at 3-years-old already has an iPod touch! [miapam]
Rocking in the holidays with Bieber
Justin Bieber was on The Ellen Show Friday and not only did he perform an amazing acoustic performance, he spilled some news! This January, you can expect more music, with a brand new acoustic album! BRB I need a moment to take this in. [infinatemistake]

Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit like holiday gifs. Especially if they involves Harry Styles, Charlie Brown, Justin Bieber or all of the above.

For singers who are so accustomed to performing live on stage, Ed Sheeran and Harry Styles are pretty terrible at karaoke.
Singing (or shall I say butchering?) a rendition of Elton John and Kiki Dee’s ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ during an aftershow party, the lads’ voices were painfully high-pitched as the rest of One Direction and Taylor Swift danced really badly in the background.
But hey, if the singing thing doesn’t work out in the future (though I highly doubt that), perhaps these two can consider being a comedic duo? I really love their bromance.
Prepare to die of laughter (or screech in pain) here:
HIT: Spice Girls Musical Opens in London
Viva Forever!, the musical based on the Spice Girls’ greatest hits, opened in London on Tuesday night. I personally loved every little campy bit of 1998’s Spice World even though it was a bomb with critics. With that being said, I can’t help but still have high hopes for the musical even though it a) hasn’t been getting the greatest reviews and b) doesn’t star Sporty, Posh, Scary, Ginger and Baby. “Viva forever…”
MISS: Justin Bieber Murder Plot Included Castration
According to multiple reports, two men were arrested on the suspicion of plotting to murder Justin Bieber. The two men were allegedly hired by a convicted murderer and rapist, 45-year-old Dean Martin, who wanted Bieber and his bodyguard strangled with a paisley tie and castrated. Martin is apparently incredibly infatuated with the pop star that he has a tattoo on his leg and has tried to contact him several times. After failing to hear back, Martin hired the two men but revealed the plot to the police before anything bad could happen. Talk about crazy! Probably not a bad idea to hire more bodyguards, right Biebs?
HIT: Jennifer Lawrence Named Most Desirable Woman of 2012
Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence tops this year’s AskMen.com’s “Top 99 Most Desirable Women” list, and while I hate that this list is on a website called Ask Men, I have to agree with them. Lawrence tops my own Girl Crush list. She’s funny, incredibly talented (she’s on her way to pick up another Oscar nod with Silver Linings Playbook) and just seems like so much fun in interviews.
MISS: Taylor Swift and Harry Styles are a “Thing” Read more…
Some Directioners are so deeply connected with their favourite member of the band that they tweet their personal phone numbers to Harry, Zayn, Niall — whoever — on the off chance one of the guys will ring them up for kicks.
Jon, from the YouTube channel SimplySpoons, decided to take advantage of this and prank call a couple fans by impersonating curly haired Harry Styles. Though his accent isn’t steller, it doesn’t really matter because you can hardly hear him over ALL THE SCREAMING.
After introducing himself, he talked to the fans about everything from going solo (he’s feeling disconnected from the other guys), cold remedies and Louis cutting down some trees.
I don’t know if the girls ever found out it was all a prank call but I’m sure they would have been devastated after bragging to all their friends for days

Some One Direction fans dealt with their conflicting emotions over Taylor Swift dating Harry Styles by writing song lyrics and singing about it. While many fans are prematurely supporting the blossoming romance (which might be nothing more than a friendship), others are already shipping “Haylor.”
It’s ironic that fans would deal with their grief through song, considering that’s how Taylor sorts through her emotions too. One of those heartbroken Directioners, named ashcollete, uploaded a hilarious parody of “Trouble” called “The Haylor Song.”
Of course, the whole thing is just for fun but I imagine some girls are feeling this troubled about the whole affair.

Taylor Swift went on the most adorable date with One Direction barely a week into her rumoured relationship with Harry Styles. They all went to New York’s Hudson Hotel after 1D’s show at Madison Square Garden for KARAOKE!!
You’d think after singing all day they’d be sick of it by the evening (or at least want to preserve their voices) but we’re not complaining… We ARE, however, a little envious at the lucky crowd that got to witness the budding love of youth and get a free show from the singers. (I can’t imagine singing in front of them if I was there though!)
Some Directioners are already shipping Harry and Taylor (Haylor) but the 1D singer seems to be pretty happy. He tweeted about the night:
According to AZ Central, here’s what they sang:
“Islands in the Stream” — Taylor and Harry
“I Want It That Way” — One Direction full-band
“Ice Ice Baby” — Taylor & 1D Read more…
If you haven’t heard the news, Harry Styles and Taylor Swift were (GASP) photographed together in NYC’s Central Park on Sunday, leading a lot of fans to conclude the One Direction member is dating the Red singer. Some more context: This wasn’t the first time they were photographed together, in fact, rumours about them dating have been swirling for months.
Fans decide to nickname the hypothetical couple “Haylor” and quickly shared their feelings about their probably non-existant relationship status on Twitter and Tumblr. To be fair, many of the fan reactions were positive or as positive as a fangirl can be (“I don’t like them together but I still won’t ship Haylor”). Still, for every forgiving fangirl there are a few Directioners that just weren’t happy.
Here are the top fan reactions to Haylor:

One Direction’s new line of paint splattered jumpsuits were made by setting the guys loose on each other so they could graffiti each other’s butts with their own handprints. The OnePiece jumpsuits, which are retailed for a steep $160 or so to $290, are essentially cozy-looking onesies for adults.
In this behind the scenes look, posted by OnePieceUK, watch Harry get chased by a girl threatening to splatter him with paint. Inside, the guys get frisky too, slapping each other’s behinds all so your hiney could have the handprint of Zayn Malik on it.
Would you wear one?

So right now the interwebz is currently freaking out over NoPetsAllowd‘s mashup of Ke$ha’s “Die Young” and One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young.” The mashup is pretty genius — Ke$ha’s voice flows seamlessly with the guys’. It’s almost like they got together in the studio and made the mashup in perfect harmony. Can you imagine Ke$ha and the boys of 1D in the same room? Hairspray and glitter everywhere.
This mashup is so catchy that it might be (emphasis on might) better than the songs themselves. It’s basically impossible to get out of your head once you’ve heard it.
So I guess now we can add this mashup to the collection of Ke$ha-One Direction hybrids that have been circulating the internet, like SmadaLeinad‘s version. At some point our minds are going to melt from 1D-Ke$ha combinations. Just make a duet already.
Listen to the mashup here:
Experience the Believe Tour
If you didn’t already hear the amazing news, ANDPOP is giving you the chance to see Canadian hottie Justin Bieber as he stops off in Toronto on Dec. 1. Find out how you and a friend could WIN tickets to the show. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll even end up on stage and be his One Less Lonely Girl. [lebieberedits]
Usually when you become a professional fan-girl, you go all out. I’m sure there have been countless times when you and your friend have fought over which member of the band is “yours.” Now you can claim your man with these tanks. [llamarianastrench]
How many times has this happened to you?
Sometimes when you’re trying to accomplish an all-nighter or just had a bit too much fun at a party you tend to forget to set your alarm. In other words — not good. If you’re going to have a late night, remember to set an alarm or two BEFORE you leave and pack your bags incase of any altercations. [modelcity]

Do you remember what you did this summer? Browsing the Internet and re-blogging cute gifs don’t count. Why don’t you pick up a hobby like playing the guitar or learning a new language? You might be surprised what you can actually accomplish! [tig-rs]
Meaningful tatts Read more…
One Direction was taunting us everyday with the many countdowns to their new music video “Little Things” and my head was about to explode in anticipation. It’s finally here and #LittleThingsOnVEVO is already trending on Twitter.
The guys were pretty practical with the music video too, filming it in a recording studio as they casually sing and look adoringly into the camera. Overall, the video is pretty low key. It was shot in black and white and has a simple theme, which makes sense considering it’s a slower ballad. This way, we really get to focus on the message of the song (that you’re BEAUTIFUL) and their ridiculously good-looking profiles.
Also, how bout these gifs from magnificent-mofo, huh?

The December issue of Vogue U.K just got dreamier. The guys of One Direction are the stars of the issue, featuring supermodel Edie Campbell. Scratch that, the real stars of the photo shoot are the suits, ties, and varsity jackets that the guys wear.
We should give an epic slow clap to the stylist behind this genius wardrobe. It’s a cool change from the guys’ everyday outfits that are a bit on the preppy side. No matter what, they’ll always be beautiful.
Here are some photos from the Vogue U.K December issue:
These personalized varsity jackets have me swooning.
Let’s just appreciate Zayn’s “the think” pose. Honourable mention to Liam.
Niall. Fail. (I still love you.)
We know by now that directioners are
obsessed in love with One Direction’s latest single “Little Things,” but we didn’t think that these fans would produce such gold. The comments for the lyric video are absolutely hilarious. I thought my inner fangirl was bad until I read through the pages of comments. And by pages, I mean novel.
While it’s true that most of the comments are hilarious, a few are quite serious. I suggest that any 1D haters out there read through what the fans have to say. The message of the song has changed lives for the better. If that isn’t a reason to love One Direction, then I don’t know what is… other than Niall’s cute face.
Here are the 15 best reactions to the “Little Things” lyric video:
Who: It took 20 minutes for Selena Gomez to get this tattoo of the Roman numerals LXXVI (number 76) by New York’s Bang Bang.
Meaning: The tattoo is in tribute to a family member who means a lot to her.
Who: Demi Lovato has over 10 tattoos, depending on how you count them. She got these tattoos that read “Let go & let god” across her feet.
Meaning: According to US Magazine Demi Lovato has admitted she regrets getting a few tattoos from her younger years. A lot of Demi’s more recent tattoos are spiritual, including the tatts on her feet and the word “faith” on her left arm, below her elbow.
Who: One Direction’s Harry Styles has a helluva lot of new tattoos.
Meaning: There are just too many to go through in this one area. Among the singer’s tattoos are his sister Gemma’s name in Hebrew, a large black star, an iced gem and the words “Won’t stop ’till we surrender.” His newer tatts include masks representing comedy and drama, along with the initials “SMCL.”
Who: Rihanna got this tatt of the Egyptian goddess Isis in London’s SOHO neighbourhood just before her 2012 Paralympics Closing Ceremony performance with Coldplay.
Meaning: Isis was the ”ideal mother and wife as well as the patron of nature and magic.” She wrote on Twitter that the tattoo is dedicated to her late grandmother: ”Goddess Isis- Complete Woman – Model for future generations- #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart #1love.”

Let’s face it. One Direction fans are extremely passionate.
Dubbing themselves Directioners and screaming at just the sound of 1D’s music, this fandom has even led trainee musicologist Josh Haddow to study what kind of person listens to a group of young men who sing incredibly catchy tunes.
And based on his research, it appears that fans are incredibly devoted. So much so, that they’re even willing to compare Zayn Malik to a religious figure like Ghandi.
But while Directioners appear to have good intentions, don’t EVEN DARE TO ASK about a romance between Harry and Louis. These fans are so defensive they will “literally punch you in the face” if you think it’s true.
Ever daydreamed about Harry Styles and what he would be like in the bedroom? Just read ’50 Shades of Grey,’ since that is where he gets his sexual education. In an Interview with The Sun, he spoke about how some women friend’s of his were making him read the book. “They were like, ‘Just borrow this,’ and I was like, ‘Hmmm’. It seems interesting. I could probably learn from it, I don’t know. I feel like it’s an educational and interesting read.” Looks like I just found my new crush!
I’m totally obsessed with One Direction too but I draw the line at wearing the band’s logo on my feet. These One Direction UGG boots are part of a new collection of 1D surf wear. The clothing line will also include flip-flops and shorts.
If your fangirl behaviour supersedes most others and you HAVE to have these boots for winter, they’re available at Between the Flags, a retailer in Australia. If you do buy them maybe you want to keep them on a shelf — a lot of fans might find them too precious to ruin!
Would you wear them?
I’m going to do things a little different this week just because the Emmys took place this past Sunday and there were a lot of amazing looks to choose from. So many looks in fact that it was really hard to narrow them all down to an itty bitty list. It was really nice to see a wide array of colours (even some really bold ones!) this year, as the Emmys tend to be a pretty good indicator of the beginning of the fall fashion season.
Before we get to the Emmys, let’s squeeze in a very dapper Harry Styles at the Burberry show during last week’s London Fashion Week. The One Direction member went solo (although word has it he was there to see rumoured girlfriend Cara Delevigne, a Burberry model) to the event wearing a heathered grey blazer, a white Oxford shirt buttoned at the collar, black skinny pants, and black leather ankle boots. Not only is this a crisp and clean look but Styles balances it out with that wild and shaggy mane of his.
Zooey shouldn’t feel blue for not winning an award but she did get to present an award with super geek Sheldon Cooper (also known as Jim Parsons in the real world). She should also feel good for wearing such a dreamy pale blue strapless Reem Acra dress, with nice draping detail in the bodice and a full (but very light) tulle skirt. We also need to give Deschanel snaps for her TV inspired nails (nail art has become a major but very fun way to accessorize looks). Check out the other successful blue ladies: Jane Levy, Sarah Paulson, Hayden Panettierre, Heidi Klum, and Edie Falco.
Shall we blame Fifty Shades of Grey for the resurgence of this steely color? Whatever the inspiration, grey has proven to be more than just a blah neutral colour. As seen in Van Camp’s grey chiffon J. Mendel gown which has nice sheer and ruched details around the bodice. This shows just how sweet and stunning a grey dress can be. (Note how her diamond accents pop off the grey colour!) Other notable grey gowns: Sarah Hyland, Morena Baccarin and Kate Mara.

I have to say One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young” music video is one of my FAVES so far. I love the empowering message of the song, plus the guys genuinely look like they’re having a good time as they usually do, playing outside with their friends (who are VERY lucky to have them).
Donned in preppy plaids, blazers and collared shirts, the guys mess around outside, running in plastic bubbles on the lake, driving fast in a giant jeep and dancing at a neon glowstick dance party.
I’m inclined to dance to the track stat but I’m at work and I don’t know how my co-workers will take to my intense hip thrusting. I’m sure they’d join in if the sound wasn’t blocked by my headphones.
Watch the video here:
Anyway, here are my favourite moments, presented in gifs:
Look how silly they are!!
Let’s just revel in their silliness for a second. The guys wake up in a giant tent with perfect bedhead and literally bust out of it onto the ground. But don’t worry, they won’t let the fall spoil their day. [1d-muses]
Do we need a reason to explain why this is our favourite gif? [niallhoranintanktops]
