When I got to college, my parents and I debated between giving me a credit card or a debit card. With my propensity for shopping and dining out, my parents had enough foresight to realize I'd be $20 million in debt by the end of the first semester with a credit card at my fingertips. Debit card it was. But that didn't come without its own share of problems.
Even though she isn’t in college anymore, Sarah still exudes the typical college girl enthusiasm for new clothes and the word “sale.” When I approached her to take a picture of her look, she agreed... but only if I took a picture of the back of her skirt. She wanted to show off the best parts of her look: the pretty metallic details and ruffles next to the rich color of her scarf.
•What happened to the cutest couple in Hollywood? • Are you a frugal shopper? You could win a $500 shopping spree! • Protect yourself from bank fees! • Guess who's using drugs again? I'll give you a hint: LiLo. • Will there be a Gossip Girl threesome?! • Get that boy to love you.
I wanted to like Kristin – really, I did. She is spunky and blunt (like me) and she has the kind of perfect hair and style that I strive for. Basically, she’s a much better version of me. Or so I thought. After last night’s episode I think I might hate that bitch more than Spencer Pratt. And no, it has nothing to do with her choice to wear white shorts and white Keds after 1995.
It’s officially fall, and I’m going bananas over pumpkins right now. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin butter, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin pie blizzards, pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks; you name it I’m obsessing over it. Simply the aroma of pumpkin pie baking in the kitchen is enough to send me over the edge. There is a valid reason for that, however. Well, at least for men.
Ok, so Delia*s may not seem like the best place to find some threads once you're out of high school, but if you look in the right places, it's a wardrobe gold mine. They have some great basics, even better accessories, and a lot of their stuff is trendy on the cheap (especially if you check out their seasonal clearance/sale).
You may find yourself asking, what does it take for a man to leave his mark on society in this day and age? AskMen.com made a list of the 49 most influential men of 2009, as voted by the readers. And apparently, the AskMen readers believe that the man that has most inspired them this year is Don Draper, the main character in AMC’s series Mad Men.
The adorned headband is just as much a central character on Gossip Girl as our BFFs Serena and Blair. It signifies power and prestige and everything Blair Waldorf stands for. And it's also really, really cute!
I went back to Syracuse for homecoming weekend and effectively destroyed any part of my liver that was still functioning. While I had an amazing time reuniting with friends and walking to the bars while shivering in the pouring rain (man I've missed that Syracuse weather), I also learned that I'm officially not a college kid anymore. I honestly don't know how I spent four years drinking every. single. weekend. on little to no sleep.
Dear Tuffy Luv, I've known this guy C for a little over a year now. One thing made me nervous is that he only comes to see me on weekends after he is slightly drunk. I don't know if I should ask him where he thinks we are going or not. I don't want to sound desperate, but I really don't think this is a healthy relationship. Do you think he just wants to be FWB? What should I do?
Between homework, studying, group projects and partying, I really had a tough time managing my time in college. I was always looking for ways to make my life easier, and it always backfired on me. No matter what anyone says, Sparknotes is not an acceptable substitute for reading the book. You’re still not going to know the main character’s sister’s dog's name. And your professor is always going to ask you for it.
You’ve been working your game all night, leaning in just enough to show off the magic that is your Victoria’s Secret Deep Plunge push-up bra. Your hair is perfect, your makeup is flawless and you’ve done your signature laugh-and-touch-his-arm move every time he’s said something cute and funny.
I have a confession to make: I LOVE HILARY DUFF! Ever since the days of Lizzie McGuire I’ve been a fan. And when I say "fan" I mean "I cried at the Lizzie McGuire movie when she finally kissed Gordo." Sigh. I also love her music, her style and her sister (but only in Napolean Dynamite).
You already know that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. What you might not know is that retailers around the country are releasing special Pink Ribbon merchandise to commemorate the occasion. Buy any of these awesome products, and a portion of the price gets donated to breast cancer research.
Halloween is quickly approaching, which means you need to figure out a costume. Now. While you could go for the classic French Maid or sexy cop (nurse, teacher, tennis pro, grandma...), why not try to wow people with your witty sense of humor instead of your mammary glands?
Everyone in my life knows I love Lauren Conrad. I started using the word “homeboy” because she made it so endearing, attempted her adorable side-braid (and pouted all day when I realized it looked horrible on me) and totally got into the leggings and men’s t-shirt trend because she rocked it so chic-ly through he streets of LA on The Hills.
While many girls consider winter wear to be a pair of Uggs and some cashmere sweaters, I go about the fall/winter wardrobe a tad differently. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love both of these things, but my fall shopping is fueled by an unhealthy obsession with the mini-dress-tights-boots combo. So it’s no surprise that what I am craving right now is - you guessed it - a mini dress.
Like most women, I get a little horny sometimes. (And like all women, I wish there were a less disgusting term to use to describe that phenomenon.) The fact is, I have needs and it gets a little old to be using a battery operated machine to fulfill them all the time.
When asked to choose their top goals, a survey of 18 to 25-year-olds yielded staggering statistics. 81% said: to get rich. 51% said: to be famous. I don’t know about you guys, but this makes me squirm in my seat just a tad.
You know those days when, no matter how much you know you should workout, you just can’t bring yourself to put on a sports bra and sweat for an hour or two? You’re too tired. The futon is too comfortable. And those Project Runway re-runs need to be watched again. Well, don’t be too hard on yourself – you only have so much willpower. Literally.
• You wouldn't want to miss this $1.5 million bash. • Bethenny Frankel has been replaced! • This woman definitely dances like no one's watching... • How do you rock a one-sleeved dress? • Lindsay Lohan can't design clothes either. • Earn some money for getting good grades!
Every week I emulate my favorite late night talk show host, David Letterman, and countdown from ten. And then, last week, my favorite late night talk show host shared with us his story of being blackmailed for fooling around with some of his staff.
