This morning Joel and Maryann in the Morning shared that Gwen Stefani and her beauty brand Gxve which launched in March have now started The Gxve Community, a digital platform for makeup lovers to share their love of artistry.

The platform will allow users to interact with each other, sell and earn commission from Gxxve products and share their ideas with one another.

Gwen told GMA, “I was very inspired by the 60’s era makeup when I was younger and loved looking at photos of my mom from the 1960s. She exuded such a timeless beauty through her makeup.”

The community is open to anyone and there’s no minimum social media following needed. If you’ve got a passion for makeup and a positive attitude this is for you. Gwen also shared that she was inspired by the sixties make up era from seeing picture of her mother from back then.

Why the Mets WILL Win the World Series

I know it’s a bold statement, however, the Mets WILL win the World Series.

The Mets have been playing for 60 seasons and the last time they competed in the playoffs was 2016 when they lost to the San Francisco Giants. Despite Mets fans fearing they will fall out of first place, they will definitely be a playoff team this year and are favored over twenty-eight other teams to win it all.

They have appeared in the World Series five times, in 1969, 1973, 1986, 2000, and 2015. The Mets won the World Series twice, in 1969 and 1986.

In 1969, the Mets’ opening day starters were: Tommie Agee (Center Field), Rod Gaspar (Right Field), Cleon Jones (Left Field), Ken Boswell (Second Base), Ed Charles (Third Base), Bud Harrelson (Shortstop), Jerry Grote (Catcher), Ed Kranepool (First Base), and Cy Young award winner Tom Seaver (Pitcher). Managed by Gil Hodges, they won a hundred games that year, played in the first year of Major League Baseball’s post-season playoffs, and the “Miracle Mets” defeated the Baltimore Orioles for their first World Series victory.

In 1986, the Mets’ opening day starters were: Lenny Dykstra (Center Field), Daryl Strawberry (Right Field), George Foster (Left Field), Wally Backman (Second Base), Howard Johnson (Third Base), Rafael Santana (Shortstop), Gary Carter (Catcher), Keith Hernandez (First Base), and Cy Young award winner Dwight Gooden (Pitcher). Managed by Davey Johnson, they won a hundred games that year (108 to be exact), and defeated the Boston Red Sox for their second World Series victory.

In 2022, the Mets’ opening day line-up was: Starling Marte (Right Field), JD Davis (Designated Hitter), Francisco Lindor (Shortstop), Pete Alonso (First Base), Eduardo Escobar (Third Base), Robinson Cano (Second Base), Mark Cahna (Centerfield), Jeff McNeil (Left Field), and James McCann (Catcher). Managed by multi-Manager of the year award winner Buck Showalter, they are on pace to win at least a hundred games and go on to defeat the New York Yankees for their third World Series victory.

(NJ.com recently reported that the Mets are more likely to win the World Series than the Yankees.) For those who are concerned about the Dodgers, the Mets have proven they can handle Los Angeles, they beat them two out of three in their season series earlier this month.

We’ll see how this plays out, but here are some of the reasons why the New York Mets WILL be the last team standing when the season is over.

  • Pete Alonso

    Pete Alonso holds the Major League record for home runs by a rookie. This year he has more than thirty home runs, over a hundred runs batted in, and leads the team in OPS.

  • Francisco Lindor

    Francisco Lindor holds the record for most multi-hit games in the postseason by a player under twenty-three. So when the playoffs start, watch for him to kill it both offensively and defensively.

  • Starling Marte

    2022 Mets All-Star Starling Marte has the second-highest batting average amongst the Mets starters and leads the team in stolen bases.

  • Jeff McNeil

    Jeff McNeil is a career .300 hitter and this year has the third highest batting average in Major League Baseball.

  • Max Scherzer

    Max Scherzer will surpass 200 career wins this year and is a future Hall of Famer.

  • Jacob deGrom

    Jacob deGrom’s numbers since returning from injury are jaw-dropping. With an ERA under 2 and fastball just under 100 mph, he and Max Scherzer are arguably the most dangerous one-two punch in the Majors.
