Clutch Essentials For The Club [Budget Stylista]

It's almost summer, and the days spent cramming for finals and living the dorm life are winding down. To celebrate acing your exams, go out with a second semester bang by clubbing with the girls! Often times I find myself annoyed while packing my clutch, because I have to remove and replace items because of the size. I'm not about to carry around a tote, but I'm an over-packer/planner.

How to Throw an Epic Pi Day Party for Your Ex-Boyfriend

How to Throw an Epic Pi Day Party for Your Ex-Boyfriend

Happy Pi Day! Today's date is 3.14, get it?! In case you blocked out the painful experience of high school math from your memory, I'll tell you a little bit about Pi. It's the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi is an irrational and transcendental number, which means it will continue infinitely without ever repeating. It's been calculated to over one trillion digits. In other news, March 14 also happens to be my ex-boyfriend's birthday.

If you think your NYE outfit, alcohol supply and approximate cab fare combine to cost a pretty penny, just be glad you aren't greeting 2012 from a nightclub in Vegas.

The Weekly Ten: Last Minute Gift Ideas

I love giving presents. I love the face people make when opening up the specifically picked gift, hearing the sounds of the wrapping paper tearing. I love the hugs and thank yous, the 'Oh my god! You totally shouldn't have (but I'm secretly really really glad you did)'s. However, I hate the process you need to take to get there.

How to Get Your 15 Minutes of Fame in College

Being famous seems pretty fabulous, and if you want to get up to the level of Mark, ole’ Snooks, or even Paris, who’s always on top in her video and off, college is the place to start. If you think running for an office, being involved in multiple organizations, or leading your sorority is going to get you famous, it’s not. Don’t be a fool.

The truth is, alcohol lowers our inhibitions…and standards…for everything. We do things when we’re drinking that we’d never, ever, in a million years consider when we’re sober (like mixing ranch dressing and brownies).

It’s a new year, and you know what that means; it’s time to start working on those New Year’s resolutions. But before you start jotting down those promises take a minute and really think about this. New Year’s resolutions almost always involve giving something up, and making sacrifices. And that negative approach makes you all the less likely to keep them.

The Morning After: Guess What I Just Lost!?

I met Josh* one night in October and thought he was cute. He was tall, had dark hair and eyes, a nice body and dressed REALLY well. We met when I was pre-gaming in the dorm, so it wasn't like I ever knew him when I wasn't under the influence, and this tends to lead to bad decisions on my part. Very bad decisions.
