Do It Yourself Tuesdays: High-waisted Skirts

Like most of you, I am a (recently graduated but not willing to accept it) college student who would rather dish out money for fashion than food. But sometimes, like in a recession...or when I'm really hungry, that doesn't work out so well. A girl's gotta eat (and look fabulous), right?

Weekly Wrap Up: Missing Middle School

Who’s Ready For COLLEGE FOOTBALL!?!?!

One of the best parts of going back to school is football season. It doesn't matter if your school's team completely rocks or totally sucks, the experience of a football Saturday is to college as a hungover Saturday is to...well, college.

I Call Bullsh*t on Chris Brown

In case you've been living under a rock for the past 8 months, Chris Brown was arrested and charged for assaulting his former girlfriend, Rihanna. Now, in an interview with old-man interviewer Larry King, Mr. Brown is saying that he can't really believe it happened, as if he magically left his body and wasn't there when the entire brawl went down.

Weekly Wrap Up: Waiting For Prince Charming

Remember that line Charlotte said in an episode of Sex and the City? "I've been dating since I was 15! I'm exhausted! Where is he?" Yeah. That's pretty much where I'm at right now. I mean, really, between meeting guys who beer bong in the wrong places and giving my number to rather questionable dudes...

How Are You Gonna Die? Do You Wanna Know?

There's certain things in life that you really don't wanna know, but you kinda, sorta do wanna know. You know what I'm talking about. Take the calories in a delicious slice of Adam's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple Cheesecake (talk about a mouthful) from The Cheesecake Factory.

Happy Women’s Equality Day!

On this day in 1920 the 19th Ammendment was added to the Constitution, giving women the right to vote. And in honor of that momentous occasion, today has been named Women's Equality Day. We have come a mighty long way since the days before women's suffrage.

WTF Fashion Choices: Seriously, WTF?

While waiting at JFK for my ride not too long ago, I was passing the time by sipping on some much needed coffee and people watching. Airports, with their mix of cultures and characters, are the best places to people watch. All was going well until...out of nowhere...I saw it: a fanny pack.

Texting While Driving – You Will Die

It started with not being able to talk on the phone while driving. I was peeved, mostly because I was quite good at shooting the sh*t with my friends whilst parallel parking, but then I watched my mom back into my car while holding that Blackberry to her ear and I realized that law was a good thing. Now, lawmakers are taking things to another level, with many states implementing laws to ban texting while driving.

It’s Time To Turn Up The Heat On The PGA

With the PGA Championship going on, I've truly been trying to take interest in the sport, but before I know it, I'm watching reruns of One Tree Hill on Soap Net and I have no idea how or when it happened. I can't help it, I'm smitten for Chad Michael Murray.

Who Can Fill Paula Abdul’s Louboutins?

I, for one, am thoroughly sad to hear that the web is abuzz with rumors that Paula Abdul might be abdicating her judge-ship on American Idol. She's my second fav of the 4 AI judges (I mean, honestly, no one beats Simon: that smile, that accent, his badass, smart-alleck wit...swoon; Randy I stop listening to after the first "dawg" leaves his mouth..

Turn Up The Fun On Your Drinking

Personally, I think a good night of irresponsible drinking and partying is sometimes necessary. And by "sometimes," I mean "college." While you might regret it the next morning when you can't roll over out of fear you will barf on that not-so-hot lad lying next to you, it's always fun.
