Couples That Make Us Love Love

Couples That Make Us Love Love

So let's be real, we all cried a little bit when we found out Brad and Jen were splitting, and some of us are still sticking pins in our Angelina Jolie voodoo dolls not over it. In fact, thanks to our obsession with celebrities, faux-lebrities and TV/movies, we often find ourselves more invested in Hollywood/fictional couples than we do in our own relationships.

The 17 Cheesiest Ways to Say “I Love You”

Valentine's Day is supposed to be about expressing your love for...uh...the people you love. But what it actually is, is a commercialized way to turn love into a cheese-tastic card with the words "I wuv u" written across the top.

Happy Valentine’s Day! With three words I’ve probably caused every single reader to groan in frustration. You’re probably trying to forget this day exists, aren’t you? Trying to pretend this is just a normal Monday. Well it’s not.

Do’s & Don’ts of Throwing a V-Day Pity Party

Do’s & Don’ts of Throwing a V-Day Pity Party

I'm going to be upfront and honest with ya'll. I'm AM the type of person that hates Valentines Day singlehandedly because I am single. I'm not going to try and deny it, I'm not going to go ahead and be all "why can't single girls just love themselves on Valentines Day!?" I am going to be loud and proud about my haste during the "holiday."

Budget Stylista: Make a Fashion Statement

The number one reason I love the statement necklace: no effort required. In your most lazy moments you can throw on jeans, a white tee and a statement necklace and it looks like you put time and effort into your ‘fit instead of hitting snooze fifteen times.

Men vs. Women: What Each Gender Really Thinks About V-DAY

Valentine's Day is right around the corner which means you're either spending way too much time debating if your not-boyfriend-boyfriend is going to take you on a date or you've already picked out the sweatpants you're going to wear and the tub of ice cream you're going to eat. Or are you? Our galpals over at Tressugar conducted a survey about what each gender thinks about February 14th.

Wardrobe Wish List: Felina: Harlow Full Busted Demi Bra

I have cried more times in the bra aisle than any human ever should. You name the store, I’ve probably been reduced to tears: H&M, Target, Victoria’s Secret (this could go on for a while). I’ve spent years trying to understand why all the beautiful bras halt at a size B.

Have a Kick Ass Valentine’s Day, Day 3: Show Yourself Some Love

Whether you are single or taken, it all plays out the same: in disappointment that someone else has let you down yet again. Why not get down to what Valentine's Day is really about - love - and instead of waiting for someone else to make you happy, why not do it yourself?

Put This on Your iPod: Belle and Sebastian Write About Love

To be honest, I've always been a little torn about Valentine's Day. For me it's kind of like communism; while great in theory, it almost never works in the execution. Considering last year I got two Snickers bars from my now-ex (gee, I wonder why), I don't have high hopes for Valentine's Day, but I'm not a complete Cupid-hater either.

So did everyone see the Hallmark commercial plugging Valentine's Day? If you haven't seen it, you'll love this: "Valentine's Day isn't about I love you, it's about I love us." Commercials like these can make any single woman want to bang her head against a heart-shaped box of Russell Stover chocolates.

Have A Kick Ass Valentine’s Day, Day 1

Love, schmove. When you are a couple, Valentine’s Day is one of the most exciting days of the year. When you are single, you sometimes want to throw things at those happy couples. However, the one thing we forget is that Valentine’s Day is not just about couples. At it's core, it's a holiday that is simply about love.

The Weekly Ten: Not a Fan of February

’m not sure if it’s the bad weather or the senioritis or my inability to focus on any one task for more than five minutes at a time, but I’ve been in quite the mood these past few days. And I’m taking my anger out on February, this too short, unproductive, cold, depressing, and generally annoying month.

February rolls around and pink and red decorative hearts start appearing everywhere, sending us into a fit of hysteria. We feel a sense of urgency that suddenly it is not OK to be alone.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: It’s Good to be Loved

There's nothing quite like the feeling of being loved. Not even fresh, hot chocolate chip cookies (with a little extra raw dough on the side) gives you the same warm, comforting feeling of knowing that someone out there really, really loves you. And that someone can be anyone: a boyfriend, a girlfriend, a best friend, your dog. It just feels good to be loved.

On the dreaded day of February 14th, I used to be the cliché girl dressed in all black because I proclaimed Valentine’s Day to be a dumb holiday created by card companies to ruin the institution of love. But really, I was just bitter about that fact that I wouldn’t be receiving a single Valentine’s card, nor did I have anybody to give one to.
