Hey besties! Happy October! Welcome to this week’s edition of Paige’s Page! It’s actually starting to feel like fall, and don’t get me wrong, I love this season, I just don’t think me or my closet quite frankly were ready for this seemingly sudden change in weather. I had my first-ever pumpkin spice latte like three weeks ago and I get the hype. Muhlenberg looks so pretty this time of year, I am excited to wear sweaters and break out my boots! All of you also seem to be excited for fall and I have gotten quite a few questions for this spooky season. Let’s go!
Hey Paige, I feel like I should already have my Halloween costumes planned but I can’t think of anything! Help!
Hi bestie! I am so glad you asked this question! I love Halloween. It is the most fun holiday of the year. I have always been the kind of person that waits until literally the last possible second to plan my Halloween costume. It would be like October 27th and I would be on YouTube watching “25 last-minute Halloween costumes” videos like my life depended on it. I honestly never use anything in those videos, but they are great for inspiration. I actually only have two costumes planned so far for this year but Halloween is on a Monday so we have to get it together! I personally love a pop-culture-reference costume. But I don’t like to do something that was from the past year or so, I like my references a little bit more dated and a lot more iconic. For example, freshman year, I was Muhlenberg-family-celebrity Ariana Grande in like 2017 where she almost exclusively wore a big sweatshirt and over-the-knee boots. I looked so cute, everyone knew who I was, and I was super comfortable (which is the key). Last year I pulled out a look that required a little more preparation which was Britney Spears in the “Slave 4 U” music video, I literally crocheted a snake for it—it was everything. I really like costumes that you also just make up. In high school I was a Coachella unicorn, and that really just meant I wanted to wear a horn and also a flower crown, but it worked. Do a random group of people with your friends and you will all look like you tried even if you didn’t. Anything is a costume if you present it with enough confidence, so have fun and don’t take yourself too seriously, but if you won’t be working out of your closet, you should probably place that order in your shopping cart soon!
Hi Paige! Happy fall! Do you have any recommendations for my fall playlist, I need some music to get me into this mood!
Hey bestie! I love love love this question. My music taste has been described as “causing other people to experience whiplash.” I like a lot of different things and those things never really go together, and most of the time people would not ever ask me to make them a playlist. But you did, so here I go! I don’t know what your fall music vibe is but mine is definitely “sad girl autumn.” Not because I’m sad, necessarily, but because the music is just better. So I would do a lot of Taylor Swift—“Folklore,” “Red (Taylors Version),”“Punisher” by Phoebe Bridgers, “Emails I Can’t Send” by Sabrina Carpenter (the more sad ones give me more fall but the whole album is amazing), “Renegade” by Big Red Machine, oh and you cannot forget “Scary” by Meghan thee Stallion ft. Rico Nasty—big Halloween vibes, it’s incredible. Oh! And how could I forget “Midnights” comes out next week. Based on what Taylor has hinted, I think it would also be a fantastic edition to this group! I think this is actually the most cohesive I have ever been in my music choices. I hope that works for you, and if it doesn’t, you were warned!
Hi Paige! Do you have any cute and fun fall date ideas?
Hey bestie! Aww! This is really cute if this is your way of asking me on a cute fall date! But if it’s not, how dare you ask me this! Just kidding… I think fall is a really sweet time for those of you dating or going on dates because there are so many options of fun things to do outside while the weather is still pretty nice. I think apple or pumpkin picking can be really cute; walking around at an orchard is always a good time. You can take one of those pictures in the head of a cow or something! Pumpkin carving or painting since Halloween is coming up. Being creative with a partner can be so cute. Coffee dates or picnics are good in the warmer months, but making them seasonal can add some spice to a classic date option. Enjoy each other’s company! Happy cuffing season!
