Welcome to "The Eras Tour," a phenomenon that has captivated hearts and even shaken the earth with seismic excitement. Every night social media floods with live streams, elaborate fan outfits, and live updates of the evening’s surprise songs. Perhaps the most heartwarming aspect of "The Eras Tour" is the exchange of hand-made friendship bracelets. Swifties share not just their love for Taylor, but also their connection to each other through her music. One review of the tour said, “there’s something extra about the joy, the craving, the ecstatic release that people bring to this [tour].” The review went on to conclude, “there’s something extra about the joy, the craving, the ecstatic release that people bring to this one.” Read the in-depth review of this love-filled tour in Rolling Stone here.
Affectionately dubbed “Messi Mania,” fans from around the world traveled to Miami last week to watch superstar Lionel Messi’s debut match for Inter Miami. The Associated Press reported troves of fans, some from as far away as Ecuador and Messi’s native Argentina, gathered to witness Messi’s debut. The overall fanfare is a welcome change for a team that currently sits at the bottom of the league. We're excited to see the United States embrace the sport and we wish all the best to Messi and Inter Miami on the season ahead!
We don’t know about you, but we’ve been seeing pink, pink, pink! Barbie earned the biggest opening weekend of any movie this summer and we’re not surprised given the sea of pink found at theaters across the world. Social media lit up with photos of entire families, including many dads and grandpas who leaned into the fun and showed off their hot pink ensembles. We’ve loved seeing audiences share this experience with each other!
