10 Things That Will Be Obsolete When Our Children are in College

10 Things That Will Be Obsolete When Our Children are in College

Our generation has been called a lot of things over the years, and not all of them have been particularly flattering. But I think we can all agree that we are the generation that thrives on technology. They call us the "thumb generation" because we're always texting or typing, and that's not really something we can argue with. We are the age of the internet, the cell phone, and the ipad.

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.)

The Importance of “Going Green” as a College Student

The Importance of “Going Green” as a College Student

In honor of Earth Day, I just want to remind everyone again how important it is to start making changes in your life to live greener. I'm not saying you all have to go out right now and start a compost heap, convert your cars to biodiesel, or throw out your whole wardrobe and only buy clothing made from organic materials. Just do something.
