  • The CC Weekly Weigh In: Bring on the Holidays!

    The CC Weekly Weigh In: Bring on the Holidays!

    There is something about the time from Thanksgiving to New Year's that makes me blissfully happy. Sure, it could be the sheer amount of sugar that is pumping through my bloodstream right now (I ate pumpkin pie and brownies and cookies and apple crisp for dessert last night), but everything about this time of year makes me wanna run and dance and sing... and shop.

  • Lusting for Lush Cosmetics

    Lusting for Lush Cosmetics

    The first time I heard about Lush cosmetics I blew it off as an expensive Bath and Body Works. Little did I know, I would become a fanatical Lush fan. Earlier this summer, for a “just because I love you” present, my boyfriend sent me a huge package of Lush products. (He's cute, I know.) And now I've found something I love more than him: anything and everything Lush.

  • Overheard: Big Piece of Lame

    Overheard: Big Piece of Lame

    (Guy, talking on the phone.) Guy: I have the best story. Dude, it's crazy. So I was in the darkroom, and this girl was developing... like, these naked pictures, right? And they looked kinda like her. So I went over, and... I asked her, "hey, is that you?" And she was like "yeah". Geez. Best day of my life.

  • Miss Manners: The DL on Weddings

    Miss Manners: The DL on Weddings

    One of my oldest childhood friends is getting married this Saturday and, quite frankly, I am horrified by the thought of attending his wedding. Not that I have anything against the lovebirds; on the contrary, I’m glad he’s happy. It’s just, well… I never know how to act at weddings. There are just too many unspoken rules, too many unanswered questions...

  • Make Your Own Mother’s Day Gifts!

    Make Your Own Mother’s Day Gifts!

    There is officially less than a week left until Mother's Day. I know - that little holiday totally sneaks up on you when you are swamped with exams, packing, and living out the final days of the school year. But don't panic if you forgot (and your mom hasn't been dropping hints every day as to what she wants).

  • How NOT: Facebook Etiquette

    How NOT: Facebook Etiquette

    I don't know about you, but Facebook has gradually begun to take over my life over the past few years. It's getting to the point where I think in third person, a la the Facebook status: "Kathryn is really stressed about her class schedule this spring." "Kathryn is annoyed with bad drivers who slow her down." "Kathryn really needs to get laid." See? Now that last one would be inappropriate.

  • Money Matters: StudentRate.com is THE Hottest Site for Poor College Kids!

    Money Matters: StudentRate.com is THE Hottest Site for Poor College Kids!
