• A Single Girl’s (Tried and True) Guide to Valentine’s Day

    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.

  • Would You Rather… Valentine’s Day Edition

    It's the end of the world as we know it. First Washington D.C. gets the most snow they've seen in 90 years and then an earthquake hits Illinois?! WTF is going on? Is Mother Nature mad that she doesn't have a Valentine?

  • How to Celebrate Chinese New Years

    Chinese New Year's is probably my favorite holiday of the year. Growing up, it meant a big feast with my extended family and receiving lei-see (lucky red envelopes filled with money) from my aunt and uncle. Food and money - this holiday doesn't get much better!

  • 8 Under $20: Valentine’s Day Fashion

    This Sunday is February 14th, that equally loved and dreaded holiday all about looooove.

  • Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Oreo Truffles

    OK, so we've only got 5 days until Valentine's Day. And that means 5 days until you are inundated with cards, candies and treats.... and you still have nothing to give anyone else.

  • My Ideal Valentine’s Date

    Valentine's Day sure does have a way of sneaking up on me and my singleness every year. And I'm not sure how it happens, seeing as the heart-shaped candy has been out since December. But while I may be forced to cuddle up with my pup come Sunday, it turns out that most people - single or taken - would actually prefer it!

  • Candy Dish: Hollywood Hits the Super Bowl

    Celebrity sightings at the Super Bowl. • Why do we eat salad? • Oh no! Is Stabler leaving SVU?! • Single women don't need to survive V-day. • He's replacing Simon Cowell!? • Tiger and Elin reunite!

  • Show Yourself Some Love This Valentine’s Day

    For us single girls, Valentine's Day can seriously suck. Even if you love being single, all the PDA (puke), listening to what your coupled friend's boyfriend did or (more likely) didn't buy them, and the concerned phone call from your mom checking up on you, gets real old, real fast.

  • Intro to Cooking: Romance Your Sweetie with Some Fondue

    As a foodie and aspiring chef, I pay a lot of attention to food. And in my life I've found that there are three kinds of cooks in the world: 1. Those who turn anything edible into sheer brilliance just from their touch. 2. Those who can follow directions pretty well and make things that taste OK....

  • Weekly Wrap Up: Gimme Some Guacamole and Candy Hearts

    Pat yourselves on the back, everyone - we have officially surpassed another stressful week! And if you are a hopeless romantic like me, Channing Tatum is closing out the week with a bang (or a box full of tissues) in Dear John. And I. Am. Looking forward to it. Besides drooling excessively over Mr. Tatum's abs, we have a lot more to look forward to this weekend: dance parties, our last football Sunday for the season, and busting our minds for that perfect gift for a special someone.

  • Single. On Valentine’s Day

    So I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Valentine’s Day is coming up. Yes, as we gratefully leave the frigid cold of January behind, we embrace the month of love...which leaves a frigid cold place in my heart. And as V-day creeps closer and closer with each passing day, I dread it more and more.

  • The CC Weekly Weigh In: Significant Jerks

    With Valentine's Day just around the corner, many of us are spending our days in bed, sifting through photos of boyfriend's past with a tube of cookie dough in hand while The Fray plays in the background. No? Just me? Alrighty then....

  • Coupled. On Valentine’s Day

    I've always hated Valentine's day. Mainly because for a good 90% of my life, the only thing I got on Valentine's Day was a teddy bear and chocolates from my mom. While she meant well, it wasn't exactly a self esteem booster in high school when all the other girls were getting roses in homeroom from their sweethearts.

  • Valentine’s Day Gifts for Both of You

    What is Valentine’s Day really about? Romance? No. Chocolate? No again. Flowers? Absolutely not. Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is about spending two weeks trying to find the perfect gift for your boyfriend or girlfriend and often failing miserably.

  • Dear John, I Want To See You

    Tomorrow's a big day. The big day. The day that I've been dreaming about for months. Yes ladies, tomorrow marks the release of Dear John and I. just. can't. wait.

  • Add Some Green (and Romance) This Valentines Day

    Valentine's Day usually includes a whole lotta red. But why not make it a little Green this year? If you're still looking for the perfect gift idea or V-Day plan – or if your original plan upped your Carbon Footprint by, like, 10 tons – try these earth friendly ideas on for size.

  • Candy Dish: Mmmm Prince Harry

    • More like Prince Charming (see what I did there?)! • Why chocolate? And other V-day questions. • Well, this would be an interesting collaboration. • Make money right now. • Jake Gyllenhaal is one hot uncle. • Jesus (Luz) doesn't love Madonna.

    As we all know, celebrating Valentine’s Day when in a new relationship can be somewhat awkward. How should you acknowledge the holiday? Here are some tips from the gift giving experts at SomeoneSpoilMe.com.

  • Valentine’s Day Gifts Under $30

    V-Day season is upon us again, and even though I’m in a relationship this year, I still feel like I want to punch people whenever I see little red hearts dotting store windows. I’m not a big proponent of the “show your love for someone by throwing money at him” school of thought. I am, however, all for gifts that are thoughtful, useful, and CHEAP. Hearing me out? Read on.

  • Single. And Missing the Little Things

    When I broke up with my high school boyfriend I knew it would take some time to adjust to being single. I knew I would miss the big things about having a boyfriend, like, you know, having someone to celebrate Valentine’s Day with, but I had no idea that it would the dumb little things that I would miss the most.
