I was surprised to find out that a good number or bars and restaurants in the city still have ladies' night drink specials. Sure, the feminist in me felt a little offended but the college girl on a budget (and unpaid internship) couldn't help but be ecstatic. Ladies' night isn't exactly the best place to meet guys seeing as how there really aren't many around so embrace it and grab your best girls to gossip or vent about work, your boyfriends, your mothers
•Ryan Gosling shakes it with Justin Timberlake •Leighton Meester is having some mother trouble •Are these ladies the new Sex and the City stars? •Mad Men collection from Banana Republic is now on Gilt! •What do guys really think of female ejaculation? •Best core strengthening exercises •Isn't breakfast just the best?
It might be because I spend too much time in the realm of fiction (reading novels, watching movies, obsessing over tv), but I've been known to spend more than my fair share of time considering the pros and cons of men that don't actually exist. The good. The bad. What they do right. What they do wrong. Why I can't actually meet the men that Carrie Bradshaw dated.
We city dwellers and big-city hopefuls would greatly appreciate it if you didn't create another Sex & The City movie. Ever heard the term "three's a crowd?" Yeah, well, however cliché it may sound, it's incredibly appropriate for your dreams of a potentially disastrous third movie. So, since we've been hearing rumors that it's a possibility, we thought it was a good time to sit down and talk.
It's official. It's summertime. Okay, so I know that technically it's not officially summertime, that's not until sometime in June, but for us college girls classes are over, finals are done, and summer is in session. And there's lots of reasons to be happy about that (like the three bs: beaches, bikinis, and boys), but there are also a few downsides to the start of summer.
So there’s been a lot of talk here on CollegeCandy lately about slut shaming, casual sex, and what exactly defines a girl as “whorey.” Instead of clearing all of that up for you with this post, I’m probably just going to create another grey area, but hey, that’s what life is all about, isn’t it?
We ladies are constantly on the look out for the hottest fashion(at the lowest prices) and the coolest trends. Even the girl who just wears the same pair of jeans everyday is looking for a comfortable pair of denim that make her ass look great. And that's why we're constantly providing a running commentary on the fashion we see on a daily basis. While some of it is certainly cringe-worthy, there's a lot of it that is ooo-ahh-I-want-it-worthy. It's not uncommon to see strangers ask each other where someone bought something.
I spent way too much time in high school watching and rewatching Sex and the City. Unlike everything else on TV these women seemed so real, so fun, and so open to dropping major dough on brunch. And while I watched for the drama, I usually tuned out for the sex. I mean, I was in high school, jackhammer sex and impotent men and unwanted pregnancies was so far over my head that it meant nothing.
We’re obsessed with vampire boyfriends. Edward Cullen in particular. An as someone who spends way too much time in the fictional world I have to step back, and ask…really? I mean come on! Edward Cullen is not the best fictional boyfriend out there. He's obsessive, overbearing, and would find great satisfaction in tearing open his girlfriend's veins and drinking her blood. This is the guy that makes you swoon? Well not me.
I would like to preface this letter by saying that your work has made a large yet incredibly skimpy contribution to my adolescent years. And while I do believe in the nobleness of your cause, I am rather puzzled by the method to the madness of such an invention.
Look out ladies, Carrie and co. may be heading to a theater near you all over again. Thought these single and fabulous girls were gone for good? Well, you thought wrong! According to our favorite celebrity insider Popeater, there are rumors of a third Sex and the City in the works.
This week, as I caught up on my favorite fall shows (and watched some Sex and the City reruns) I couldn’t help but notice a running trend: female friendships. Sure some shows were about shopping (or singing while shopping) and some were about saving lives, but at the heart of it all, were some pretty cool chicks.
You see, everyone knows the gays love Manhattan. Don’t roll your eyes. Please, we have Broadway…this is their Mecca. And across the water we have Brooklyn, a mother ship for hipsters the world over. They come in droves, boasting blasé attitudes and a taste for bands you’ve probably never heard of before.
Can anyone believe we're nearing the end of the second week of June? It seems like just yesterday we were packing up, hugging our BFFs goodbye and settling back into our childhood bedrooms. And now summer has come upon us so quickly I haven't even had time to go swimsuit shopping! We've even already had the MTV Movie Awards, which means the 4th of July is just around the corner.
I think I blinked three times during the entire 147 minute showcase of Sex and the City 2. I didn't want to miss a single drool-worthy second of high fashion, I couldn't stop fathoming how well Aiden had aged and I didn't want to miss any of Carrie's one-liner snippets of advice. And while soaking it all in, I noticed something else.
My inspiration for Fashion Porn can come from anywhere. (OK, anywhere except actual porn. Have you seen what those people wear?!) Last week, for example, it came from kicking off my third summer in a row by donning a cowboy hat for a week. And this week I'm feeling inspired by none other than Ms. Sarah Jessica Parker and that gorgeous yellow Valentino dress she wore for the Sex And The City 2 premiere.
Have you ever watched 'Sex and the City' and thought about how you and Carrie Bradshaw would totally have been BFF if only you had met in high school? Well, now you can meet the 17-year-old Carrie in Candace Bushnell's new young adult novel, 'The Carrie Diaries.'
I celebrated my first post-college birthday this weekend by ordering a year's supply of Botox, as well as a classic girdle. I'm 23 now and that's practically ancient (especially by CollegeCandy standards). So please forgive me if from now on my blogs can't keep up with youthful lingo and Miley Cyrus references.
• The Ungaro disaster wasn't Lindsay's fault, ok? • Tina Fey and Al Roker get it on?!! • Do men fake orgasms? • A 140-character scholarship application? It exists! • Garth Brooks is un-retiring. • Sex and the City gets a line of shoes.
There were more consecutive sunny days in Syracuse then there were couples during my four year stay. Most guys would sprint and leap into oncoming traffic before they would admit to dating a girl and relationship terms like "committed" came to mean a situation in which the guy you were hooking up with would be a gentleman by driving you home...
Once upon a time, women sat around on Sunday nights sipping cocktails and tuning in to their favorite fashion friends on Sex and the City. But whether you were more of a Samantha or a Carrie type doesn't matter anymore because there's a whole new gang of girls in town. The new fashionistas to watch are the girls of the hit series Mad Men.
We make such a big deal about sex. It consumes us. We lie about sex – we say we’re having less when we’re having more, and more when we’re having less. We worry about our relationship if the sex isn’t “above average.” We worry about our health, our sanity, our bodies and our worth if he simply rolls over.
• Wanna see Kate Gosselin naked? • John Mayer and Kristin Cavillari are dating?! • Cute boots. Cheap price. Yay Target! • Who's excited for SATC 2? • Emma Watson starts at Brown. Stalkers abound. • Who needs 911 when you have Facebook?
We've featured many a sports-related rivalry in weeks past, but what would College Candy be if it were not for our strong, beautiful twentysomething female readers? With that in mind, let's pit legendary women's colleges Barnard and Wellesley head-to-head (er, tit-to-tit?).
Remember that line Charlotte said in an episode of Sex and the City? "I've been dating since I was 15! I'm exhausted! Where is he?" Yeah. That's pretty much where I'm at right now. I mean, really, between meeting guys who beer bong in the wrong places and giving my number to rather questionable dudes...
In honor of CollegeCandy’s cocktail hour this week, the Weekly Ten will be on the 10 reasons we adore NYC! As a recent resident to NYC’s Upper West Side, here’s my take on my new favorite city…
If Carrie Bradshaw was literally going to be the lady who lived in her shoes, then I will be the lady who lived in her handbags. I guess the upside is that handbags are a lot roomier and more cushion-y than those 12 million pairs of Manolos Carrie rocked on a season to season basis.
If you're a Sex And The City fan (and who isn't!?), you probably recognize this famous look from the opening credits of the show when SJP is flouncing around New York, splashes in a puddle, and sees herself on the side of a bus. Carrie's three-tiered cream-colored tutu dress was such an iconic fashion statement that it even made a cameo in the SATC movie.
• How is Jessica Simpson worth so much!? • A summary of Cosmo magazine. • Lindsay Lohan is not preggers. Right? • So, who will be at the MTV awards? • SATC sequel secrets revealed! • Sales: a girl's best frenemy.
Last week Oprah had an episode discussing sex, sexual attraction and the things women want when it comes to doin' the dirty. The episode as a whole was fascinating - did you know there is an equation for figuring out how hot someone is?? - but one point that really stuck out to me was the discussion of sexual desire.
