If we could only use one word to describe college students it would be “drunk.” Wait. I mean, it would be “broke.” (Though “drunk” is also pretty spot on.) Between the cost of a college education, the books to get that education, and the drinks that come along with that education, most college students don’t have much money left to do the one thing we love most…shop!

It’s not hard to enjoy a beer. Just crack that baby, open your mouth and – boom – enjoyed. But thanks to college students’ never ending stream of ingenuity (or their need to drink as much cheap beer as possible without actually tasting it), there’s a wide variety of ways to indulge in the nectar of the gods.
Maybe because it’s supposed to be spring and it’s currently snowing outside, I’ve been thinking an awful lot about Christmas recently. Then I got hungry. That’s because my go-to homemade gift for Christmases of yore has been homemade granola. What’s not to love? It’s healthy, hip, cute, and – well – tasty! So if the weather’s got you down, stay in and make some of this stuff!
We’ve all been there: you’re putting on your makeup and all of a sudden you drop your compact. You hesitate to pick it up, scared of what you’ll see inside. And sadly, when you peek inside, all you can see is crushed product. Then, of course, you spill half of it in your makeup bag. Well that’s just great.
So the end is near for this challenge and chocolate goodies are ready to be eaten! (Nom nom nom.) As I am nearing the finish line on this challenge, I am constantly and increasingly questioning why I started it in the first place.

I spent way too much time in high school watching and rewatching Sex and the City. Unlike everything else on TV these women seemed so real, so fun, and so open to dropping major dough on brunch. And while I watched for the drama, I usually tuned out for the sex. I mean, I was in high school, jackhammer sex and impotent men and unwanted pregnancies was so far over my head that it meant nothing.
Lauren Oliver popped onto the YA author scene last year out of the blue. Her debut novel, Before I Fall (which may or may not get reviewed as a Saturday Read someday), was a smash hit and she quickly started work on her second novel, Delirium. Before I Fall was typical YA fiction, but Delirium is a dystopian novel, set ahead in the future when one of our most treasured possessions is forbidden: love.
It’s that taxing in-between time of the semester again – spring break is over, papers and projects are coming due, and finals are looming ahead. It’s clear that college students are stressed right now, and with that stress comes the need for relaxation. And what better way to unwind than by pampering yourself and indulging in some me-time?

Yes, it’s official, peeps. 2011 is leaving its mark (or blemish) on history with the addition of a few choice words to the good ole’ dictionary. Among the words to made the cut: “OMG,” “muffin top” and “LOL.” What a legacy we’re leaving behind for our children.
Even though it’s spring, it seems like no one gave Mother Nature the memo. Rather than sporting my favorite spring sandals and cuffed capris, I’ve been running around in my dirty Uggs and down-to-the-ground coat. But instead of praying for the sun to warm me, I’m going to take matters into my own hands and go see Limitless this weekend.
Whether it’s possible to get over past love has been the hot topic of many of my weekly “girldate” lunches for the last few years. We promise to our girlfriends, to our mothers, and even to ourselves that we’re over the guy that we used to spend our days consumed with — and then one particularly lonely night we can’t help but romanticize what our past relationships were like and in turn, we never really get over them. You suddenly forget his tendency to forget important things in your like, ahem like your birthday, and instead you reminisce over the time you went mini-golfing and spontaneously made out under the windmill.
Earlier this week we asked our beautiful readers to enter to win a Bags of Love personalized makeup bag by telling us their #1 beauty essential. And it seems that everyone could really use a new makeup bag because we had over 135 entries! Dayummmm.
Our society has incredibly dysfunctional, scary, and repressive ways of approaching sexuality, especially female sexuality. If we dare to step outside those narrowly defined boundaries, society finds it completely acceptable to hurl words like “slut” and “whore” at us. We’re called sluts for endless reasons: our hair is too big, our nails are too red, we wear too much glitter, our skirts are too short, we look like we may enjoy giving blow jobs, we dance too suggestively, our sense is humor is too raunchy…
