The Weekly Ten: When Reality TV Was Amazing

Oh reality TV, how you have gotten me through many a rough patch in my life, many a break up, many a late night binge fest...really any low point in my life. I've been with you since the first Real World appeared on MTV, to the horrible escapades of a young Jessica Simpson, I've seen it all.

The Weekly Ten: Give Thanks

The food, the family, the parade, the mark of the beginning of Christmas...really what more could anyone ask for? But with all of these amazing things around us (and the promise of half-price shoes the next day) we sometimes forget what Thanksgiving is all about.

The Weekly Ten: My Christmas List

I am fully aware that Christmas isn't for another 4,394,668 seconds, but since every other store in the world is getting ready I figured I should start to compile my wish list. You know, in case anyone wants to buy me something other than socks. Grandma, I'm looking at you!

10 Life Lessons from Barbie

When I was 10 I used to lock myself in my room and play Barbie for hours. Sometimes it ended in drastic haircuts, other times marriages, but usually with someone's head being popped off. Although I had a lot of respect for a girl who could rock one of my many failed attempts at an early "Rachel," I had to admit I was a little jealous.

The Weekly Ten: Happy Halloween

As mentioned in previous posts, I love Halloween and everything about it. From being scared straight, to mocking the horrible fake blood in haunted houses, it's the most magical time of the year. Plus, it's the one time of year I can watch Halloweentown multiple times a day (which is exactly what I plan on doing today...judgement free zone).

The Weekly Ten: Love Yourself!

I know you are probably sick of CollegeCandy writers telling you to hop on the self lovin' train (not in the masturbation sense), but I'm having a week of self-hate, so you're just going to have to grin and bear one more person telling you that you are awesome. Think you can deal?

The Weekly Ten: My Hipster Halloween

My original plan, for this year, was to be Ruth from "Hey Arnold." It fits my obscure rule: The more times I can scoff and say "What, you don't know who I am?" the better. And when I find someone who does know who I am...well, we become best friends for the night. Then I found a pretty dress so I'm being a fairy...I know. So as inspiration for the rest of you go-all-outters for Halloween here are my ten favorite dorky-hipster-internet themed costumes.

The Weekly Ten: Things College Students Take For Granted

Needless to say there are very few things I wouldn't be willing to part with in order to get back the comfy dorm room living I've grown accustomed too. So here are some things you should be thankful for having while living away from home...

The Weekly Ten: How to Stay Healthy

It's the time during school when the coughs starts, the sniffles rule the class room, and sweatpants seem to be in short supply at the book store. With changing seasons often comes the first cold of the semester. This is the one time living at home has its benefit, and where living in the dorms makes you a sitting duck for disease.

The Weekly Ten: My Dream DVR

Thank god it's fall TV time, I was beyond done with summer reruns and all of those teasers they kept throwing at us. I think we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief that Snookie is back in our lives.

The Weekly Ten: Falling for Fall

I should be rejoicing that the 80 degree days are extending past labor day. Instead I'm left wishing the leaves would start changing, hoping that my pants can move back to the front of my closet, and even wearing sweaters to try to force the hot weather out. Maybe it's the overload of pumpkin spice lattes (my new legal drug addiction) but I am lusting after fall this year.

CollegeCandy Investigates: Does Slim Fast Work?

I have always been a fan of any quick fix diet plan. If there was a pill that would melt away pounds within a day, I would be first in line to buy it. So when I was perusing the web one day and happened upon the Slim Fast website, I saw an opportunity and ran with it. After all it has 'fast' and 'slim' in the name, so how bad could it be?

The crisp air is beginning to settle, leaves are changing, and small children every where are begging for one more day of summer. Yes, dear readers, it's time for school.Which means one thing, well a couple but one main thing, back to school shopping! And I'm not talking about a clothing binge at Forever 21, I'm talking school supplies.
