Fashion Inspired by a One Direction Video

I'll always think that the boybands of my childhood (Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, duh) are the creme of the crop. Maybe that explains my aversion to One Direction, or maybe I've just outgrown boybands. Yeah, right.

8 Under $20: Swim Cover-Ups

It's August, and just because school starts back up again in a few weeks doesn't mean summer's coming to an end anytime soon. Temperatures around the country burning up, and I for one can't stand it. If it wasn't for my full-time job, I'd be hitting up a pool or the beach every day to stay cool. Which is why I'm super exited to get a new bathing suit cover up, too. Check out some great bathing suits for just $20 or less!

If You Like Harry Potter…You’ll Love These Books

Ever since the last Harry Potter book was published, the series has left a gaping hole in reader’s hearts. We’re all lost without the tales of Harry and company and the last movie is making us feel a little nostalgic. So what’s left to read?

Summer, We’ve Missed You!

It's June 21 - and (hopefully) we all know what that means- the official first day of summer! Now that we've all been out of school for a while, most of us have settled into our warm weather routines. There are certain activities that are only acceptable in the summer months, and here are the ones I am looking forward to most...

CollegeCandy Presents Our Summer Reading List

Is there anything better than spending a day reading on the beach, getting a golden glow, and sipping on a Pina Colada? I mean, I'm just guessing that would be the best. My beach days are usually more about trying to keep my hair from birds-nesting in the wind, spraying on SPF 75, and half-heartedly drinking warm beer that's on the verge of boiling in the sun. But I do love opening up a good book, getting lost in the story, and ignoring the fact that there's an elderly man walking back and forth wearing a a speedo thong.

The 10 People You’ll See at the Beach This Summer

Living in South Florida means I’ve seen my fair share of beach-goers. The beaches down here are filled with beautiful people with beautiful bodies and perfect tans. However, they aren’t always filled with people who are easy on the eyes. Nor is every beach day an episode of Baywatch. As summer approaches, more and more people are heading off to the beach to catch some rays and waves -- which mean you're going to do a lot of people watching. For better or worse.

Budget Stylista: N is for Nautical

While Nautical inspired clothing is big every year around the 4th of July ( I mean we all remember owning an Old Navy $5 flag shirt at some point or another) this year, Nautical is even more in style. From stripes to cherry colored bottoms, Navy blazers to white terry zip-ups, dressing yourself in the colors of our grand ol' flag has never been easier!

CC Beauty Live: Beach Hair

The waves, the sand, the salty air. Sounds like the makings of a perfect beach day, right? Yeah, until you think about the fact that your hair becomes a hot mess when all of those things combine.

Saturday Read: Abandon, by Meg Cabot [Giveaway]

Summer is here (or almost here for some of you!) and that means breaking out the fun, beachy reads. You know - chick lit, young adult, etc. Who can focus on a tough read when they're at the beach and there is so much scenery to take in? And by scenery, I mean half-naked men playing beach volleyball and rolling around in the sand. For days like this, I turn to my favorite YA and chick lit authors.

Friday Faves: Flip Flops – Fashion’s Anti-Christ

Peppered throughout magazines and blog sites are optimistic articles about delicious summer activities and fashion trends to anticipate and enjoy. However, there is one thing about summer that is so heinous and disgusting that I feel I must warn the masses before it destroys them: flip-flops, fashion’s Anti-Christ.

Body Blog: Get Sporty (and Fit) This Summer

It's strange, but for some reason spending 45 minutes on the elliptical feels unnatural when the weather starts warming up. It's like lying in a tanning bed when it's 80 degrees and sunny outside. Clearly, I've already grown tired and bored of my normal workout routine for the year. The solution? Exploring outdoor activities that will provide me with a sense of adventure as I tone up.

Fashion Porn: Getting it on in the Sand

With Spring Break fast approaching (more on that here!), it's time to start thinking about what you'll be wearing with that margarita on the hot, sandy beaches. That also means it's time to get your bikini bod ready and prep yourself for the agony of swimsuit shopping.

9 (Hot) Places I’d Rather Be Than (Freezing) Here [GALLERY]

It’s a good thing I own a huge collection of sweatpants, because I don’t plan on ever leaving my house. I mean, have you seen it out there? It’s disgusting over on the East coast, and the only thing getting me through this season is the knowledge that I won’t need to wear a bikini in public anytime soon and therefore feel no guilt when I binge on deep-fried Oreos.

Saturday Read: Eat Pray Love, by Elizabeth Gilbert

I've been seeing previews like crazy for Julia Roberts' new movie, "Eat Pray Love" and it looks pretty cute. And since I have a standing rule that I must read the book before I watch the movie, I was forced into this week's read. However, I'm so glad that I did!

Body Blog: Good Eating Is Skin Deep

live for the summer. In the spring, I count down the days until my last final and I miss it terribly during the fall. I love the way the sun‘s rays touch my skin, I love reading novels lazily on the beach, my morning outdoor runs, and enjoying picnics and BBQs. I love the skin-exposing, brightly colored fashions I get to wear.

Budget Stylista: Summer Style Goes on Sale

Every year it boggles my mind when boots and wool sweaters start showing up in stores in mid July. I mean, honestly. Sweat is dripping down my back and I'm supposed to be shelling out dough on the over the knee leather boots and colorful wrap scarves? I think not.

Saturday Read: Nice Recovery, by Susan Juby

In the summer, there is nothing I love more than laying on the beach with a cold drink and a good book. One of my favorite genres for summer reading is biography and for some odd reason, I tend to gravitate to memoirs of alcohol and drug abuse. Don't ask me why, but I love to read memoirs of addicts. Maybe it's the grittiness of the story or that they usually are somewhat recovered by the time they write the book, but I can't get enough of them!

5 Friends Everyone Needs To Have In The Summer

Summer is in full swing and while we're all busy toiling away at our internships and jobs, it's hard not to dream about those relaxing and fun summers of our past. Not only did we have zero responsibility back then, but we had all of our friends to chase through sprinklers and get Dairy Queen with. Not anymore.

Fashion Porn: Beach Cover-up Orgy

Whether you choose to wear a bikini or a one-piece, you're going to need a cover-up for going to the beach, or even just covering up a bit to avoid extreme sun exposure. Lucky for you there are some really cute options this year that will easily transition from the beach to the boardwalk (assuming you dry yourself up enough to avoid those pesky wet marks around your boobs...).

From CollegeFashion: How To Get Beach Babe Hair

A beach babe can’t be beachy without rocking wavy hair! As much as I would love to hit the beach every day (and therefore get beachy-wavy hair), most of us, myself included, don’t have the resources or time to do so! So here are some tips to help you create perfect beach waves without a trip to the seashore.

Budget Stylista: Tote Your Stuff in Style

Summer means beach. Beach means sunscreen, snacks, beach reads, magazines, a towel, a wallet, two pairs of sunglasses (you need some smaller ones so you don't get those ridonk tan lines), a change of clothes, more snacks... Basically, a whole lot of crap.
