Julia Roberts, We Love You

Julia Roberts, where you been girl?! For a while, you were the hottest mama in Hollywood. Your megawatt smile, great acting chops and beachy waves won us over (and also made us intensely jealous), then out of nowhere, you disappeared. Poof! You had to go get married and have babies...twins and all.

Weekly Wrap Up: Beer Me The Weekend

What a week! I don't know about ya'll, but I've been busting my butt at the gym, trying to look cute before classes start again. There's a lot of stress to look banging when the school year starts again, what with the new slew of potential Freshmen boys roaming through campus. But before I can begin my 5k regimen (or chug a protein shake on the couch), let's the review the week that was.

Weekly Wrap Up: It’s a Hot Mess Up In Here

You know what's cool? Pit stains. Or not. But thanks to the summer sun, I've got 'em and I have a feeling they'll be sticking around until September. That oughta be good for my social life.

Steve Jobs – Just Another Bad Boy We Can’t Help But Love

Steve Jobs and Apple Inc. held their press conference earlier today regarding all the controversies swirling about the defects found in the iPhone 4. If ya'll remember correctly, I was the geeky nerd who stood in line on June 24th at the Apple store and waited for two hours (with the rest of the Apple fanatics) to get my hands on the new iPhone.

Summer Job Got You Down? We’ve Got 7 Easy Ways to Lift Those Spirits!

Even though summer should be all about relaxing and enjoying the sun, many of us are so busy with our own internships and work that we often forget to take care of ourselves. And even when we do, pampering on a budget seems almost impossible. (Um, hello $65, one-time facial). Pretty soon we're pasty, tired and moody to boot.

Weekly Wrap Up: Halfway Through Summer

What the eff happened to summer and how are we already ending our second week of July? Just last week I was wearing my sombrero and making margaritas and now I'm ordering plane tickets to go back to school.

Lebron’s Going to Miami and We’re Not Surprised

While most of us were sobbing our Thursday night away when Bethenny got married (which was, btw, the sweetest thing ever), the rest of America was glued to ESPN, waiting for Lebron "King" James to make his announcement about which baskeball team he would sign with next.

5 Friends Everyone Needs To Have In The Summer

Summer is in full swing and while we're all busy toiling away at our internships and jobs, it's hard not to dream about those relaxing and fun summers of our past. Not only did we have zero responsibility back then, but we had all of our friends to chase through sprinklers and get Dairy Queen with. Not anymore.

Lindsay Lohan Deserves More Jail Time

For those of you living under a rock (or in a cubicle thanks to that stupid unpaid internship deal) these past couple of days, Lindsay "Lilo" Lohan has been sentenced to 90 days in the slammer for....A LOT OF THINGS: cocaine possession, tampering with her SCRAM bracelet, driving drunk on the freeway...the list goes on. Sadness for Linds.

The Intern’s Guide to L.A.

Ah, Los Angeles. The city where dreams come true; where any long-legged, doe-eyed girl can become an actress; and where you can make it big, REAL big! Yes, that may be a slight exaggeration, but L.A is a place of delicious food, great culture, and really, really cheap bars.

Weekly Wrap Up: Where Did June Go!?

Seriously, can you believe it it's July?! I know, I'm freaking out too. Before we know it, August will come and we'll all be dragging our butts and our Yaffa Blocks back to school. But fear not, the holiday weekend is here! I don't know about the rest of you women, but I know I'll be spending the next 3 days lounging by the pool with a margarita (or two) and a big, juicy hot dog (or three).

Diet Coke – My One True Love

Since I began my "no-soda" journey these past few months, I've been reminiscing my memories with my favorite soda, Diet Coke or, as the cool kids call it, "DC." Those who are in the DC family understand what I'm talking about: Diet Coke is not merely a "drink," it's, as TheFrisky.com points out, a lifestyle.

5 Relationship Lessons We Learned From Politicians

Okay, so our generation has received a lot of flack for not being able to form real, long-lasting relationships, thanks to technology and archaic dating rules about college that span from the 1500's. But here at CollegeCandy, we'd like to give a big smooch of thank you to the politicians who have set the standard for the foundation of great relationships. It's people like them that give us faith that men can be intelligent, sexy, and cheaters

12 Hollywood Starlets Who Got Better With Age

Except for the hottest young actresses and the hottest of the hot messes, women in Hollywood never get the positive attention they deserve. And that's especially true for older actresses who fall in neither the categories of young, romantic lead or Betty White, grandma-archetypes. What gives?

Diary of an Apple Hoarder: Getting the New iPhone 4

While ya'll were sippin' on your mojitos and checking out the cute bartender, yesterday, after a long day of interning, I spontaneously decided I was going to wait in line for my new iPhone 4. So at around 6pm, I hopped in my car and drove to the closet store (Old Town Pasadena) where I was flabbergasted by the line that formed around, yes around, the Apple Store.

The Nick Lachey Effect

You know it's true: there's always that one guy at school who's so hot you think he was some secret Brad Pitt/Angelina love child. Where did he come from? How is he so perfect? Does he have a single brother? Wait, WHAT? THAT'S HIS BROTHER?! How is that even possible? How are they related? Do they have different dads?

The Internet is Making Me Angry: My 5 Online Pet Peeves

While I love the Internet for giving us Facebook, AIM and the ninja way of downloading music without getting caught, there are still some things about going online and the web that I could do without. I've noticed that since I've been going on the web 24/7 for work and internships, I've been getting angry.

Beer Pong Gets Serious

Remember those days when you spent your evenings in grimy basements accentuating your cleavage to throw off your beer pong opponent's game? Oh, that was last night? Awesome. While it seemed like a total waste of time or just a more exciting way to get really, really drunk, it turns out all that dedication might pay off.

Weekly Wrap Up: Summer Is Happening So Fast!

Can anyone believe we're nearing the end of the second week of June? It seems like just yesterday we were packing up, hugging our BFFs goodbye and settling back into our childhood bedrooms. And now summer has come upon us so quickly I haven't even had time to go swimsuit shopping! We've even already had the MTV Movie Awards, which means the 4th of July is just around the corner.

Gossip Cheat Sheet: Lindsay’s Still Drinking. Who’s Surprised?

Poor Lindsay. With all the cheating scandals behind us, we celebrity-obsessed gossip hunters had nothing to do this week but focus our attention on Lilo's first week of "sobriety." Which, if you aren't living under a rock, we all know didn't go so well. But it did go better than Lady Gaga's trip to the Mets game. And life in general for those Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Miley Makes a Very Good Point

As much as I dislike Miley Cyrus and all her bimbo-ish ways (like when she said she's never listened to Jay-Z but he's mentioned in her hit, "Party in the U.S.A"), this girl really speaks her mind and sometimes, she's spot on. Like her recent comments on the painstakingly obvious double standard that young, female entertainers have to live up to in the entertainment industry.

GLEE Is Over. But Now There Are Books!

For all those who don't know what to do with their Tuesday nights now that GLEE aired its season finale and you've spent the last 43 hours overplaying "Don't Stop Believing'" on your iPod, have no fear!

Men Are More Emotional Than Woman. Wait, What?!

Remember those nights when you spent 5+ hours talking on the phone with your girlfriends about what your man friend was trying to tell you when he texted you, "Good Night" with a winky face? Well ladies, you're not alone. A recent study has shown that men actually over-analyze and get more emotional about relationships than women do!

MTV Movie Awards: What They Wore

The MTV Movie Awards have come and gone and it was quite a show. From the Les Grossman opening to Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell hanging from the ceiling ("My testicles are numb....") to the awkwardness-as-they-tried-to-be-funny-without-actually-admitting-to-being-together when Kristen and Rob won Best Kiss, there was a whole lot going on.

MTV Movie Awards: Bring on the Fun… and Hunks

The MTV Movie Awards are on tonight and I think for the first time in a long time, I'm genuinely excited to tune in to see who wins. Usually, I'm only about major movie awards so I can see the beautiful gowns and semi-awkward interviews, but with a host whom I absolutely adore (Aziz Ansari) and a ton of special guests and presenters (uhhhhh...I guess Jersey Shore sorta counts), this may be one of the most interesting MTV Movie Awards yet.

The Most Ridiculous College Classes Ever

Jezebel did a post this week on the most ridiculous college classes. So I began reminiscing on the most interesting and fun classes I took these past two years in college. While many of my courses were focused toward my majors and completing my GE's, I always try to plan out my schedule so I can take one fun class each year. At Syracuse, there's one course that always gets full enrollment and by full I mean more than 300+ students.

Teens Are Relying on the Rhythm Method, But Why?

Here's a little statistic that will make your head spin: According to a new study, 17 percent of teens have used the rhythm method for birth control, and the number is growing day by day.

What?! Megan Fox Isn’t Hot Enough Anymore?

So I never really knew how to felt about Megan Fox...especially after she made her debut in Michael Bay's blockbuster hit, "Transformers." I initially hated her cause she was smackin' her pillowy lips on my hot (dream) bf Shia LaBeouf. Throughout the movie she basically was eye candy for all the men while all the ladies just rolled our eyes until Shia came on screen.

Suck It Jesse James

I am so sick and tired of hearing about Jesse James trying to apologize and make up excuses for why he decided to cheat on Sandra Bullock, America's favorite sweetheart. It's bad enough that he cheated on Sandy with multiple women, but the fact that he's going to the media (i.e People Magazine, Nightline) and explaining what prompted him to cheat (apparently his Dad was abusive to him as a child) just proves that he needs to grow a pair and be held solely responsible for his actions.

Facebook’s New Privacy Settings: A Guide

My truly disgusting love/hate relationship with Facebook is turning more into hate than love after the social networking site changed its privacy settings yet again when thousands of users complained about how their privacy was non-existent. Not surprisingly, these settings require users to make changes manually, meaning those who don't could have their bizness all over the web without them knowing.

It’s Time To Hang Up The Microphone, American Idol

So last night was American Idol’s big finale, the one where they name the winner and have a whole show dedicated to Simon Cowell’s creations. To be honest, I didn’t even know the season finale was last night until I saw it pop up on my Twitter feed this morning. And even then, I couldn't have cared less.
