I blame deciding to slice my bangs up to my eyebrows on every high fashion magazine there is. I saw all of those glamorous models with their thick, dark bangs and wanted some of my own. Little did I know, there were a few side-effects that come with the sudden impulse to go Edward Scissor Hands on my hair.
What is Valentine’s Day really about? Romance? No. Chocolate? No again. Flowers? Absolutely not. Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is about spending two weeks trying to find the perfect gift for your boyfriend or girlfriend and often failing miserably.
Tomorrow's a big day. The big day. The day that I've been dreaming about for months. Yes ladies, tomorrow marks the release of Dear John and I. just. can't. wait.
It is clear, ever since I tuned into the first episode of Jersey Shore, that my life (and vocabulary) would never be the same. I was robbed of my typical (Thirsty) Thursday nights in hopes of catching a glimpse of Ronnie laying someone out and going to jail and I now use the term "you're not invited to chicken cutlet night" in my daily life.
$2,600,000. That's what 30 seconds of air time costs during Sunday's Super Bowl. Can't afford it? We can't either, though we'd love a spot involving Paris Hilton licking an over-sized lollipop, rollerblading through an All-American neighborhood, led by a jive talking goat on a leash.
• We know Pink doesn't, but she might be the only one... • Get Lea Michele's Grammy makeup! • Wait, Lauren Conrad has another book? • A little gift for you! Deeeelish. • Heidi Montag's mom thinks she's a freak, too! • Super Bowl = super for dating?
After the nail-biter championship game last Sunday, the Super Bowl will be sure to not disappoint. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints beat out Brett Favre's Green Bay Packers Minnesota Vikings in overtime to become the NFC champions and move on to face Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts.
We're halfway through Hump Day. The good news: only 2.5 days until the weekend. The bad news: I have a giant paper due on Friday at 5 p.m. and I still haven't started it yet. The worst news: I missed the Teen Mom reunion special last night.
So according to a recent study, the Internet is making us depressed. While the scientists behind the study link depression to the amount of time spent in a virtual world, I have a few of my own theories as to why the Internet is making us all very, very sad.
• More like Prince Charming (see what I did there?)! • Why chocolate? And other V-day questions. • Well, this would be an interesting collaboration. • Make money right now. • Jake Gyllenhaal is one hot uncle. • Jesus (Luz) doesn't love Madonna.
Teen Mom. Yes, like most people, I am obsessed. I am still trying to figure out what Catelynn has that I don’t (besides braces, a trailer, and a 1995 JCPenny homecoming dress) that makes Tyler choose HER over me. SO unfair.
According to BBC News, there's one plastic surgery procedure that has shot up 80% in the past two years. No, not an increase in women who want a rack like Christina Hendricks or a booty like Kim Kardashian. And no, it has nothing to do with Heidi Montag. The increasingly in-demand surgery is (gasp) a boob reduction... for men.
As most of you know, Punxsutawney Phil woke up and saw his shadow this morning, alerting us that, yes, there will be six more weeks of hell winter. What a prick! Six more weeks of bundling up like an Eskimo for the walk to class? Six more weeks of a constant runny nose and ghostly white complexion? Six more weeks that my wardrobe will consist 100% of sweatpants and Uggs?
The 2010 Oscars nominations were announced this morning, and sci-fi shoo-in 'Avatar' and the war-on-terror thriller 'The Hurt Locker' lead the Academy Awards with nine nominations each including Best Picture. Other nominees in the best picture category include: 'Blind Side,' 'District 9,' 'An Education,' 'Inglorious Basterds,' 'Precious,' 'A Serious Man,' 'Up' and 'Up in the Air.'
It has been about sixteen hours since Taylor Swift won the Grammy for album of the year and I'm still fuming. My heart hasn't stopped pounding and I haven't been able to eat a thing (though that might have something to do with the half gallon of hummus I housed during the show). I've said it before and I'll say it again: Taylor Swift is overrated.
• What brings Taylor and Kanye together? • Kristin Bell's gettin' hitched. • Looks like this girl will be seeing Spiderman. • So who is Padma's baby daddy? • Wanna tone up? Try these new exercises. • I'm not even sure what to say about Noah Cyrus.
The Grammy red carpet is probably my favorite of the season. Though attendees of the Golden Globes and Oscars are better dressed, those at the Grammys bring the good, the bad and the outrageous. The dramatic dressers of the music industry bring out their weird and wonderful performance-esque outfits, blurring the line between stage-worthy and red carpet-appropriate.
(Two girls, walking.) Girl 1: So how was last night? Girl 2: It was great. Craziest sex I've ever had.... But I'm worried. I think he might like me.
The Grammys are only a few hours away! We haven't been this excited since the Golden Globes...2 weeks ago. But to be fair, we didn't really care who won the awards at the Globes - we just wanted to see what all those people were going to wear on the Red Carpet. The Grammys are different; music plays such an important part in our lives and we feel totally connected to the people who bring it to us.
“Winter Wonderland,” “White Christmas”…sugarcoat it all you want but winter sucks. Unless you are a skiing or snowboarding fanatic, you feel my pain. I didn’t even like sledding as a child; you got to the bottom of the hill, OK, then what? You run back up to the top, your hands numb, then do it again? Awesome.
• Oh no! Ugly Betty got cancelled?! • Is Leo gonna put a ring on it? • Is Kelis trying to pull a Gaga on us? • This is an interesting model spread... • 9 glamorous hairstyles to try. • Nick Cannon wants babies.
My favorite combination of four letters is finally here: TGIF. Whether you were finishing up your first week of school, or applying for internships, this week was a productive one for all of us. And so was this month! Is January really almost catapulting us into February? The month was especially productive for the fist pumping guidos of Jersey Shore, as the cost per fist pump sky rocketed.
It's Friday. My brain stopped working 3 days ago. In lieu of doing actual work I've spent the past 2 hours catching up on TFLN, stalking photos of people I do not know on Facebook and trying to figure out what will be going in my flask tonight.
This Sunday, January 31st, the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards will air on CBS. And you must know what we're thinking: it's the perfect excuse to drink on a Sunday! (Until the Super Bowl, that is.) Nothing goes better with good music than an ice cold beer (or 12), so we at CollegeCandy have come up with the perfect drinking game to accompany the big night.
When I first saw this commercial (while drunk eating last Saturday at 4am) I was appalled. "WTF?" I screamed, spitting a chunk of cheese onto my rug. "What kind of country do we live in where we need an invention to make our pants bigger to fit our fat asses?"
J.D. Salinger, the beloved author of "The Catcher in the Rye," died today at the age of 91. According to his son, his death was of natural causes at his home in New Hampshire.
Wednesday, January 27, 2010: a big day for America. That’s right, yesterday we witnessed the unveiling of Apple’s latest and greatest: the iPad. For those of you who have been in a bubble since yesterday (doing homework perhaps?) we’ll put it this way: Kindle+ gameboy +portable DVD player+ internet+ bigger and better APPS = the iPad.
With word that the fun-loving, tan-tastic kids of MTV's 'Jersey Shore' are renegotiating their contracts so that they earn $10,000 per episode in a new season, a few thoughts went through our mind.
The wingman: a legendary tool of bros worldwide. Once a key to success, wingmen have become so commonplace (there are even books about their rules and various codes) that even the women preyed on by bros and their wingmen know their lingo and their tactics, making their hard work a big waste of time.
There is no doubt that Tim Tebow is an outstanding athlete, a two time Heisman winner who will automatically enter the 2010 NFL Draft. But did you know that the world might never have known that? In 1987, Pam Tebow was urged by doctors in the Phillipines to abort her pregnancy, because they feared that not only would the baby be stillborn but that her life might be in danger as well.
Would you rather pee on your guy out of excitement when he proposes OR throw up on him out of excitement when he proposes?
• Everything you never knew about Girl Scout cookies. Yum! • What's the future like for Rihanna and her new man? • Giada De Laurentiis does Target! • Gwen, Madonna and other celebs who should have fitness videos. • Is this Hollywood's newest couple? • Are 20-somethings not saving money?
