What Your American Girl Doll Says About You

While the historical doll franchise may not be nearly as popular as it was in the late 90's/early 2K, we all had (at least) one of these at some point. Whether you were a super-classy Samantha, a down-home Kirsten, or a spicy, adventurous Josefina, your doll of choice said a LOT more about your 8-year-old self than you thought.

The Most Expensive Handbags Ever

As much as we all want to believe it's the sensibility of the bag that matters, the one feature that makes us swoon and drain our savings accounts is the designer label. Regardless of the color, design, or cliche monogram, the second we hear it's D&G, Fendi, Prada- whatever you prefer- we're instantly won over.

Whatever Happened to the Zoog Disney Stars?

Even though today's Disney stars like Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus seem to get way more attention than anyone back in the Zoog Disney days (late 90's/early 00's) ever did, I would much rather watch re-runs of Lizzie McGuire rather than The Suite Life on Deck or Shake it Up.

When it's Okay (and NOT Okay) to Text

As a certified 21st century girl, I love all forms of "e" (or "i" for all you Mac geeks) communication. Email, IM, tweeting, texting- they're all great ways to stay connected, so why are movie theaters, schools and other public places getting so strict about them?

Responding to Your Comments (Especially the Bad Ones): Part 2

Here at CollegeCandy, we're constantly getting feedback from our readers (which we LOVE -- keep it coming!). But every now and then (okay, fine, everyday), we get some strange, awkward and just downright offensive comments. Instead of ignoring these trolls and letting them have the last laugh from the dark depths of their parent's basement, we decided to give them a little shout out.

Then and Now: Facebook Edition

I think we can all agree that the early social networking sites were total and complete fails. Myspace, Friendster, Meebo -- all those ugly, tacky sites got us through the early 2000's. But when Facebook was born in 2004, it was truly the a revolution for social networking. Real names, professional-looking profiles, this site really had it going on... until Zuckerberg decided to start implementing the crazy changes that the site is now for infamous for making.

Meet the The Tallest Women in Hollywood

Celebrities come in all shapes and sizes. We've got all the 4-foot-somethings down in the "tiny" category with Snooki (4'11") and all the "average" people hanging out in the severely overcrowded 5-foot-something category. But then there's a few women who obviously have either goddess genes or were giants in a past life, cause they've made it into the 6-foot-and-over club.

15 Awesomely Nostalgic 90's Lunch Boxes

Today it's all about what car you drive, what bag you carry, or what your phone is capable of doing, but back in the day, it was all about what you brought to the table-- the lunch table, that is. The kids with the generic, plain fabric bags got their lunch money stolen while the kids rocking the Power Rangers box were always scoring extra points when it came to trading deserts.

8 Crazy Unhealthy Diets That You Should Avoid

When it comes to losing weight, some people are desperate enough to try anything. Even though it's well-known that committing to a healthy lifestyle of eating right and exercising will give you slow, but ultimately successful results, it doesn't stop people from jumping the gun and buying into ridiculous diet fads -- most of which are probably more unhealthy than being overweight anyway.

Pizza Art: Making Pizza Look EVEN Better

Ah, pizza. The college delight that never fails to satisfy my cheese cravings and put a smile on my face. But what happens when people try to put a smile ON a pizza using only real ingredients? Pizza art is created! Ever since we found out about sushi art, we just can't get enough edible fun.

The Most Uncomfortable Clothing Ever

Even though most people claim to dress with their personal comfort as a priority, I think it's safe to say that fashion trends are never based on how "comfortable" an item is, but how original and flattering the piece is to the body. Sure, beauty requires a little pain, but some of the things people wear today are not only unfashionable, but they're also super uncomfortable.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Edit or Trash the New Season?

If you're not familiar with what happened a few weeks ago, Russel Armstrong (husband of Taylor Armstrong) was found dead in his home, hanging from a rope. While some sources say it was due to depression after Taylor had filed for divorce a month before the tragedy, authorities believe there were also a lot of mental health issues going on as well. So what was Bravo supposed to do?
