The Know: Save, Eat, Exercise, Repeat

You know that really annoying friend of yours who feels the incessant need to point out that they were the first to know about a now really popular band every. single. time. it comes on the radio?

As annoying as they are, there is something exciting about the knowing of a new band, new clothing brand, great sale, awesome book or recipe, and sharing it with the ones you love. And by ones you love, I mean the ones you go back and forth with right here on the CollegeCandy message boards.

So here’s the deal: every week, we will feature 3 things that YOU think other CollegeCandy readers just have to know about. Anything at all. Nothing is off limits.

Groupon.com

In almost every major city, Groupon.com is taking over. Sign up for the daily email and be prepared for amazing deals to pop up in your inbox like magic once a day. Seriously. AMAZING “I can’t afford to eat there” Restaurants offering $75 gift certificate for $20. Spas offer a facial thrown in with the purchase of a massage. Half off on laser hair removal. And the list goes on. It’s what I imagine Christmas morning would be like. Only it’s every morning.

Core Fusion (DVD)

This workout has become my obsession over the last year and a half. And I’m not a fan of working out  (ugh, who is?), so to be obsessed with a workout truly says a lot. If you live in a city where they offer classes, I suggest you bust out your Lululemons and head on over. But if not, fear not – you can transform your body from the privacy of your own home! Core works one muscle group at a time using light weights (around 3lbs max) to tone and lengthen so you don’t end up with those athletic bulky looking thighs.  And after about 3 weeks time, you will catch yourself looking in store window mirrors saying “daaaamn is that me?!”

Make-A-Wish foundation free ice-cream day at Cold Stone

My 3 favorite words… Free. ICE. CREAM. With Brownies. And Carmel. And Rainbow Sprinkles. And it’s for a good cause? If that’s not worth knowing about (and participating in) then I don’t know what is.  The Make-A-Wish Foundation is putting on their 8th annual World’s Largest Ice-Cream social from 5-8pm at Cold Stone’s nationwide. Do good and eat a plenty…. and then sign up for the aforementioned Core DVD (see I’ve got it all planned out for you!).

Email your “The Know” ideas to [email protected] and I’ll pass them along to everyone right here, right now. Well, not right now, but soon. Like, every Thursday.
