By now, pretty much everyone knows about, and is completely addicted to, Pinterest. There's no better way to spend hours discovering new recipes, DIY projects, pretty pictures and fashion inspiration. And now there's a new site that combines my love of wasting time browsing Pinterest with my other love, online shopping -- Have to Have!
The premise behind News.me is simple: every day, News.me scans tweets and posts by who you follow on Twitter and Facebook and provides you with the top five stories via an easy-to-read feed in an iPhone/iPad app or a daily email.
While I love to travel, the one thing that I don't love about it is planning the flights. Trying to find the perfect flight on the date and times you want, without too many layovers, at the lowest price possible amidst the sea of flight options out there is enough to drive a person crazy. But with Hipmunk, booking flights is now a whole lot less stressful.
Whether I'm studying, walking to class, having a dance party with my friends or working out, I have a Pandora station that suits my every situation and mood. As much as I love my go-to music site, though, I've recently discovered a new site that's giving Pandora a run for it's money. Meet Raditaz! It's an internet radio service, much like Pandora, except it has over 14 million songs in their library -- that's about 13 million more songs than Pandora.
If you do want to start thinking about finding a job after you graduate, a great site called Zumeo can help you along the way! With Zumeo, you can set yourself apart from other job-seekers by creating a three-in-one "mini professional website" that includes a professional profile, your resumé and portfolio.
Whether its posting a funny video or interesting article on Facebook, emailing a new recipe to a friend, sharing files for a group project, or sending photos to your family, we're always sharing information with one another over the internet. But what if there was a way to share and host all your files in one place? PutLocker makes file sharing as easy as can be!
Just like everyone else, this year I pledged to finally start working out and eating better. Part of it is vanity -- who doesn't want to look good in a bikini at the beach this summer? -- but the other part is knowing that, as I get older, I have to start taking care of myself if I want to live a long, healthy life. The problem is, I've always had a hard time getting (and staying) motivated -- but not anymore!

I have a confession: I'm sort of obsessed with lists. Whether it's a shopping list, top 10 list or to-do list, organizing the things in my life into lists keeps me sane. But making lists really helps me out: I find if I don't write out everything I have to do (errands, school work, chores at home, etc.), I'll forget. I've recently discovered a new way to help me organize all the things on my to-do list: Clockblock.
For many college students around the country, this is one of the last weekends of winter break -- which means it's the last time to have fun and party before the pressures of the school year start again. So what are you going to do to close it out with a bang? If you don't have any plans yet, you should check out The Weekend Map for your closest city.
It's no secret that college students drink a lot of beer. And it's also no secret that we're all pretty broke, so often the money that we could be spending on our beloved beverage has to be spent on more "practical" things...like food or textbooks. Well, thanks to a new site that's calling itself a "search engine for beer," you'll be able to save more money so you can afford beer and the other important things in life.
It's common knowledge among anyone who knows me (or anyone who reads my posts) that I'm an online shopping addict. But I can't afford to buy everything I find online, so I'm always on the lookout for great deals. If I find something I really like, I'll keep checking back until there's a sale or it goes on clearance. Now there's a web app that does the work for me!
Ever since high school, it seems like we all have at least one occasion every year -- whether it's a formal, wedding or just a fancy party -- where we can get all dressed up. And while it's fun to dress up now and then, it can get expensive to have to buy a new dress for every event.
As college students, we do a lot of reading. And while I love to read, I don't love how much I can spend on textbooks each semester. Which is why I'm always looking for the best deal when it comes to books -- so imagine how excited I was when I discovered I could save money on my books for my English classes by reading the them online for free on sites like Litfy!
In this season of being thankful for all that you have, it's nice to think about others who might not be as lucky as you are. FreeRice.com makes giving back easy (and kind of fun, too), by donating rice to hungry children around the world just for playing a simple word game!
I love discovering new music, so going to concerts is one of my favorite ways to spend a weeknight (when I should probably be studying instead). That's why missing concerts simply because I didn't hear about them until too late is one of my biggest pet peeves. But I've recently come across a new site that ensures I won't ever miss another show: SuperGlued.
I know I'm not alone when I say that I spend way too long trying to decide what to wear in the mornings. Well, thanks to an awesome site called Closet Couture, getting dressed in the morning just got a whole lot easier.
Whether I'm talking on the phone and doing chores at the same time, or chatting on Facebook, doing schoolwork, and watching Glee, I'm always multi-tasking -- which is why I like things that make my life easier. Float helps with that by conveniently putting all my favorite web content all in one place.
It seems like new social shopping sites (like Groupon) are popping up every day. Some of them are even specifically focused on one thing, such as vacations, wine, shoes, and more. One of the newest sites I've come across is Bookperk, a Groupon-like site geared towards readers.
We all know that we college students don't always put as much emphasis on our health as we should. Instead of eating right, getting enough sleep, and exercising, we pig out on junk food, pull all-nighters and get drunk. And while we know we should take care of ourselves better, it's hard to make a change all at once. Health Month helps get you on a path to better health, a little bit at a time.
So you have tons of pictures from last weekend's party on your digital camera that you want to share with your friends, but you noticed that some of them don't look as great as you've hoped. If only you had some good photo editing software! Pixlr, an online photo-editing tool, is one great solution!
It's hard to have to choose between studying hard and having fun. I hate to admit it, but I choose the fun option more frequently than I should -- and I know I'm not the only one. If only you could get your reading done faster and still have time to have fun! Well, with Readfa.st, you can.
