The 15 Best Harry Styles Outfits Of 2017

It is safe to say that 2017 was a great year for Harry Styles.

The one-fourth of One Direction released his self-titled debut solo album on May 12 and spent the subsequent weeks soaring the charts for hit singles, “Sign Of The Times” and “Kiwi.”

Despite these accomplishments, Styles also made his mark in fashion throughout the last year. Given the help of his sublime stylist, Harry Lambert, Styles won the category of “Choice Style Icon” for the Teen Choice Awards.

The following 15 outfits are by far the best ones that Styles — and Lambert — conceived.

10 Mid-2000s Shows That Deserve A Reunion In 2018

There are so many opportunities in 2018 for reunions of our favorite television shows.

Now that Netflix has taken it upon itself to bring back our favorite shows, like “Fuller House” and “Gilmore Girls”, and revisit the lives of our favorite characters, there is no reason to wait.

Below are 10 television shows from the mid-2000s that deserve a reunion episode (or even better; series) in 2018.

1. “Torchwood”

Captain Jack Harkness flirting with everyone? Amazing. John Barrowman on our screens? More amazing. No Ianto? I’m still traumatized and I don’t want to talk about it.

2. “Queer As Folk”

I’ll never stop fighting for a “QAF” reunion. Did Justin become successful in New York and return to Brian? Did Ted and Blake have their happily ever after? Did Drew find Emmett on his “21st birthday”? Plus, Ben and Michael can now legally get married, so that means that Debbie will marry Horvath!

7 Groundbreaking HIV Storylines In Honor Of World AIDS Day 2017

World AIDS Day is every year on Dec. 1 and can be overlooked by many people as we celebrate the official start of the holiday season.

However, given that HIV/AIDS affected approximately 36.7 million people worldwide at the end of 2016 and is still considered to be a significant health issue today, it deserves attention.

As 2017 comes to an end, let’s reflect on a few of the television programs that feature powerful storylines for characters living with HIV. More so, how it affected not only these individuals, but also their loved ones.

1. “An Early Frost” (1985)

The made-for-television film was the first to address the topic of gay men affected by the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. Penned by Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman, the screenwriters made one of the earliest strides to break the stigma surrounding the ostracized community. Despite the revolutionary storyline, Lipman recalled in 2015 to The Huffington Post that NBC did not give them an easy time. “You couldn’t stack the deck by having the gay characters be ‘too gay.’ You couldn’t have all the straight people be the villains and the gay people be the heroes.”

2. “Designing Women” (1987)

The episode “Killing All the Right People” shows the character Kendall Dobbs (Tony Goldwyn) asking the main women on the show to design his funeral. Dobbs is then revealed to be gay and dying of AIDS. One of the most iconic moments in the episode was the following exchange:

Imogene: “As far as I’m concerned, this disease has one thing going for it: It’s killing all the right people.”
Julia Sugarbaker: “Imogene, get serious, who do you think you’re talking to? I’ve known you for 27 years and all I can say is if God was giving out sexually transmitted diseases to people as punishment for sin, then you would be at the free clinic all the time!”

#MeAt14 Reveals An Ugly Truth That Needs To Be Voiced

The Washington Post’s explosive article on Nov. 9, where several women accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of initiating sexual encounters while he was in his 30’s and they were teenagers, prompted the latest social justice hashtag, #MeAt14.

According to CNN, #MeAt14 “sparked conversations on social media over the weekend about the age of consent”, and highlighted how vulnerable individuals are at 14-years-old while they are still developing. While some have used the hashtag to shed light on their own experiences with abuse and others have used it to express solidarity, it reveals one universal, ugly truth:

Consent as a child is not possible, and anyone who claims otherwise is complicit with the horrid act of pedophila.

While reading through the different #MeAt14 posts, I began reflecting on my own life at 14-years-old, and what I could and could not do. The following list that I compiled made me realize the power of context.

12 Holiday Drinks College Girls Should Drink, Based On Their Zodiac Signs

The holidays are a time to get creative with the food, drinks and desserts that we prepare for get-togethers and celebrations. If you have a culinary bone in your body (can’t relate), you are probably used to your friends asking you for recommendations on what new plate to dish out.

Holiday drinks are important, too. They do not have to be alcoholic either, though there are plenty of options if you are looking for that extra kick.

Woman’s Day created a comprehensive list of “Holiday Mocktails”, and I have used their list to determine which drink best fits each zodiac sign.

1. Crimson Christmas Punch – Aries

Daring to explore new places is right up your alley, and that includes any festive drink. You are often viewed as impulsive, which you would have to be to try a drink with three different juices.

2. Sparkling Spritzer – Taurus

You love the finer things in life and whether you believe it or not, you are sophisticated. People consider you to be predictable, but you possess a mental agility that can catch people off guard.
