In Ohio once Halloween is over winter weather officially starts. We always have our first snow before Thanksgiving. Cincinnati just had its first snow last week. The temperature is dropping and the layer of clothes is rising. I’m gonna show you just a few ways to stay warm and look cute at the same time.
Sweaters and turtle necks are probably the most simple things to wear when it’s cold out. They’re also the most versatile. You can put lays under it, like a flannel under a sweater showing the collar and cuffs. You can also put things over it like a simple jacket. They can go with any pants like leggings and jean. Sweaters can be a comfy outfit or a nice outfit depending on how you style it. However turtle necks always look nicer no matter how you put them.
Cardigans, much like sweaters are a very simple things to wear. You can easy put them over anything such as a tee shirt or a dress shirt. Cardigans can be an extra woolly layer to keep you warm or you can just wear a cute thin one to the looks.
Not so much as an outfit piece, but an accessory, scarves can and a lot to a look. Plaid scarves have become very popular, you can pair them with anything that matches. You can wear them with a plain long sleeve. They can be a nicer look when warm inside, making you look warm and cozy, but dressed up at the same time.
Speaking of plaid, patterned pants have also been a trend, bringing a blast from the past. Plaid or checked leggings and skinny jeans have blown up. You can also find pants with patterns such as stripes and checkered. These are a lot harder to match things to. Getting black and white patterned pants would make it the easiest, being able to go with any plain colored shirt. However colored pants can would with any plain shirt that matches the colors on the pants.

Last Friday a certain Nevada town was bracing themselves for an intense alien raid at Area 51. Around 25,000 people were expected to storm into area 51 to catch some aliens and find out the secrets behind the walls. Keep in mind this little town has around 40 to 50 residents so they were prepared for the catastrophe they were about to face.
But what happened over the weekend did not go exactly how anybody expected. This event that had guards armed and ready for action ended up being an alien themed festival of people. Or in social medias words an “Alien Stock”. Residents of the town were in shock but relieved that the crowd was manageable and not reckless. A young 22 year old man named Mathew Carswell who attended the event spoke to press claiming that it was “-honestly breathtaking” and was “-a really good atmosphere.” Everyone was surprised about how great of a time they actually had at the festival. The number of guests was around roughly 3,000 people and they were people ranging from children, to couples, to older people and families. That were all just looking to have a good time. (time.com).

All over the world, drivers for Uber, Lyft, adn Juno, which are some of the biggest rideshare companies happened to go on strike. That means you should probably not try and use these services. The LA- based RIdeshare United, has taken a lead role in the strike.
