Easy DIY Granola Bars! [Intro to Cooking]

In the summer, I pretty much go hiking every day. Whether it's with my dad or my best friend, hiking is one of my favorite forms of exercise because I don't even realize I'm exercising. This burning of calories requires some form of energy-replenishing, however. It's important to bring water and snacks, especially when the hike is really difficult and takes a long time. In this case, granola bars are my favorite thing to bring on a hike.

Getting Ready for The Avengers: Day 4, Chris Hemsworth [Photos]

For the past three days we've been bringing you pictures of the cast of The Avengers, and today the saga continues with Chris Hemsworth.

Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been” Has Us Confused [Video]

Sure, I get the point of the video: Rihanna is saying "where have you been?" to a perfect guy because she has literally searched everywhere, as evidenced by this video in which she is literally looking everywhere. And yet, if you turn the sound off, the point of the video is completely lost. Here are a couple things Rihanna could be doing in this video...

Grandma’s Chicken Noodle Soup [Intro to Cooking]

I've been stuck in bed for the past three days with a whole slew of symptoms (fever included), and I will admit that I've been a little homesick. I miss not having to deal with my roommates going in and out of the room for class.

3 Ways to Style Soffe Shorts for Summer

Maybe this was just my group of friends in elementary school, but I remember having an obsession with Soffe shorts. Anyone who was anyone had them. The signature folded-over shorts revealing the white elastic band were an essential staple in every fourth grade girl's closet. Unfortunately, the popularity of the coveted Soffe short began to wane when we entered middle school and high school.

Giuliana And Bill Having a Baby!

Sit in on any biology class, and you will hear that we are biologically programmed to be mothers. It is genetically ingrained in us to think babies are cute, and to (usually) eventually want one of our own.

Mom’s Sloppy Joes [Intro to Cooking]

We all have those recipes that remind us of our childhood. For me, that is this Sloppy Joe recipe. When I was little, my mom used to make this for my sisters and me every week. The flavors remind me of being home, something that I miss when I'm away at college for months at a time.

Our Top 10 Girl Crushes [Photos]

Brooklyn Decker recently posed for GQ and revealed her biggest girl crush: Gisele Bundchen. She said, "she can do no wrong in my eyes...Gisele is just so perfect in every way." I immediately thought of my biggest girl crush, Jennifer Aniston, and how I feel the exact same way as Brooklyn Decker. I absolutely love her. While Jennifer Aniston is definitely at the top of my list, I have a few other girl crushes who I absolutely aspire to be like.

15 WTF Tattoos We’d Regret [Photos]

While I can understand why people would get tattoos of things that are important to them (like a loved one's name), I am too indecisive to get a tattoo. I'd regret it eventually because I'd probably change my mind about the tattoo I should have gotten. Also, I'm too young to make a decision that is going to stay with me for the rest of my life. Here are a few tattoos that make me say, "Why would someone ever do that?"

The Best Worst Karaoke Performances Ever [Sundays are for Procrastinating]

Singing. Some of us are born with this natural talent, while some of us...lack the ability. If you fall into the second category, it is important to acknowledge the fact that you will never, ever be Beyonce. I'm sorry but it is true. Here are few examples of truly horrible (yet amazing) karaoke fails for your procrastinatory pleasure...

Woo Your Dude with Some ‘Engagement Chicken’ [Intro to Cooking]

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, right? Right. They also call this "Engagement Chicken" for a reason. Apparently, if you make this for your boyfriend he'll propose to you. While I wouldn't rely on this chicken alone to get your boyfriend to pop the question, it certainly helps!

How to Perfectly Apply Red Lipstick

If I told you the number of times I have attempted "the perfect red lip," you'd be surprised that I still have not figured it out. Somehow I always end up smudging it by the end of the night, leaving me with an embarrassing hint of red around my lips that makes it look like I've been hardcore making out with some guy (which is not what happened!). As it turns out, this was all just a result of me not knowing how to correctly apply lipstick.

Celebrities With Horrible Spray Tans [Photos]

I spend all summer at the beach but I am simply not capable of tanning. I burn or freckle, that's it. Despite the Twilight/vampire jokes, I've come to accept the fact that I will be forever pale. When I explain this to people they say "Why don't you just get a spray tan then?" Here's why I immediately refuse...
