Healthy Fast Food Options When You’re Pressed For Time

It's hard to balance a healthy lifestyle when you're a college girl on the go. Between crazy class schedules, team meetings, hang out time with friends and Toddlers in Tiaras marathons, finding time to buy real food, and make meals that don't involve a microwave can get pretty difficult. We all want to stay healthy and fit (even if we do engage in the occasional tub of Ben & Jerry's), but sometimes it's hard to do that within the confines of a college dorm or cafeteria.

I have about a bazillion plain white T-shirts in my closet at the moment, which takes me back to the days of middle school when we'd break out the buckets and rubber bands for tie-dye parties. This craft is a great way to use those plain shirts and customize them with your own designs, quotes - whatever you want. The result is an extremely cute end product that's completely unique.

Red Carpet Looks From The Emmy’s [8 Under $20]

One of the most notable trends from the Emmy's this past weekend was the color yellow. It was seen on a large amount of stars and was definitely adding some bright hues to the red carpet!

I found all different shades of yellow for those of you who embrace the bold or maybe stick with neutral shades.

Are You ACTUALLY Ready For Love? [Friday Faves]

At any give time since I was about 14, I thought I was ready to fall in love. Through high school crushes, adult heartbreaks and many others in between, I always stuck to the idea that I wanted to fall in love and be in a real relationship but yet seemed to be jinxed. Unlucky. A hopeless disaster. I even had a few years where the old song "But Not For Me" was my theme song. I laughed about it with friends, joked about it with strangers and secretly would cry about it alone.

All Little Monsters Are Beautiful: Lady Gaga’s Body Revolution

Self esteem is something that all humans struggle with. Black, white, fat, scrawny, mousy, beautiful-- everyone faces insecurities of some kind.
