jan faves

January 2016 was a roller coaster. Between celebrity deaths, award shows, and couples reuniting, I’m amazed I was able to keep up!

My list of news articles was way too long for this favorites post, so I selected the best few to share with you guys. I also had a great time picking music this month, and all of my favorite shows are slowly coming back from their hiatus, which means more episode favorites!

Here are my favorites for the month of January.

Favorite News Articles

1. RIP David Bowie. He and Iman are such a photogenic interracial couple. My heart goes out to her.

2. Leo DiCaprio went viral at the Golden Globes after flinching when Lady Gaga walked by him. Because, look at those side hoop hips, though.

3. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are engaged. Again. And they better stay that way.

4. Emily Blunt is pregnant! Wooohoo! Hazel is getting a sibling to play with!

Favorite Music

1. “All That’s Left” by Manila Killa ft. Joni Fatora. This song can take me “round and round on this carousel” any day.

2. “House on Fire” by Sia. Only Sia can make what would usually seem like something masochistic sound romantic, and I love it.

3. “All I See” by Draper ft. Laura Brehm. Such a cute song right in time for Valentine’s Day.

4. “Home” by St. Lucia. “You can tell them you’re going home.”

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Majestic unicorn goddess iiSuperwomanii (Lilly Singh). Work that beach, girl.

2. Slow Magic on the drums. Must have been such a fun show!

2. Younger, “Tattoo You.” Kelsey got her own imprint and I’m so happy for her! #CareerGoals

3. Suits, “Blowback.” Welcome to hell.

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Bevin’s Haul Heaven. Please bring Bevin and his weird friend back for another episode.

2. Ryan Abe’s poor face. Why would he do such a thing?

The new year fails to disappoint in the realm of pop culture news.

I can honestly say that January has been a mix of fun, witty and extremely emotional news topics. I didn’t think this elastic heart of mine would make it till the end… (see what I did there).

Without further ado, here are my favorites in pop culture for the month of January:

Favorite News Articles

1. Once upon a time, Queen Elizabeth drove King Abdullah to absolute madness. Too bad women aren’t supposed to drive in Syria! Rest in peace, King Abdullah.

2. This guy photobombs stock images, and it’s awesome. Check him out on Tumblr.

3. Interview with Maddie Ziegler, the face of Sia. This girl is just freaking amazeballs.

4. Will Ferrell hit a cheerleader in the face with basketball. The cruelty.

5. Bratz dolls get a makeover. So weird seeing them as normal dolls!

Favorite Music

1. “Peace of Mind” by Above and Beyond ft. Zoe Johnston. This is on my list of Above and Beyond faves for sure.

2. “Fourth of July” by Fall Out Boy. It’s a bit more rock than I’m used to, but I like it.

3. “Riot” by Mikky Ekko. Literally just found out he has an album out this month. Not too shabby.

4. “Boom Clap (Japanese Version)” by Charli XCX. When is the full version coming out?

Favorite TV Episodes

Castle, “Private Eye Caramba.” Javi is such a fanboy!

The Mindy Project, “San Francisco Bae.” Lee Pace with a man ponytail. Enough said.

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Elastic Heart featuring Shia Labouf and Maddie Ziegler. If you put this video in the context of their real lives it really makes you want to break down and cry. Especially with that heart-wrenching end scene!

2. PewDiePie’s Pledge. Can’t wait for the return of “Fridays with PewDiePie”!

3. Wreck It Wednesdays with Grav3yardgirl. So happy this is back!

4. Frozen bath with Thatcherjoe and Caspar Lee. That Winston Churchill question would have saved me.

Goodbye January, hello month of St. Valentine…
