Is The College “Dating” Scene Ruining Us?

Red solo cups litter the floors and tables, filled with either Busch Light or some untrustworthy concoction made by the bartender. So called “bartender” is actually some frat boy wearing a beer helmet and a sign around his neck that says “007.”

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Vinyl Record Bookend

The other day, while aimlessly roaming through the overpriced yet drool-worthy home goods at Urban Outfitters, I came across some adorable vinyl record bookends.

Do-It-Yourself Tuesdays: T-Shirt Bracelet

If there's one thing all college girls have it's an abundance of drunk selfies t-shirts. Sure, you need a few to sleep in or work out in, but the rest? They're just taking up coveted space in that teeny dorm closet.

Do-It-Yourself Tuesdays: The T-Shirt Scarf

It doesn’t matter if you go to an Ivy League school or a community college, there’s one thing that all colleges have in common and that’s FREE STUFF. Namely, free t-shirts. My dresser is currently overflowing with them (of varying sizes) and there’s no need for all of that cotton getting in the way of the cashmere and the silk.

Intro To Cooking: Oven Fries

The edges are crispy and savory while the insides are soft and piping hot. They’re so much better than the fries you buy at the concession stand or a fast food restaurant, because they’re actually made from potatoes. They're easy to make and even easier to devour. Just writing this makes me want to whip up a batch and chow down. In my bed. While watching an ANTM marathon.

Can You Turn a DFM Into a Serious BF?

Spring break is long gone. You’re back at your non-tropical, cold slash rainy campus, and all you can do is reminisce about all those tequila shots, bonfire parties, and, most of all, that boy you met.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Oreo Truffles

OK, so we've only got 5 days until Valentine's Day. And that means 5 days until you are inundated with cards, candies and treats.... and you still have nothing to give anyone else.

There are some things you learn in life (and in textbooks) that you never forget: We went to the moon in 1969. Plants live by converting sunlight into energy through the process of photosynthesis. Cows have four stomachs.

Intro To Cooking: Faux Cookie Dough

Any type of cookie dough is a good type of cookie dough in my book. Cookie dough ice cream, homemade cookie dough, even store-bought Nestle cookie dough is delicious. Especially when eaten directly from the plastic tube with your fingers while watching old episodes of Sex and the City.

Campus Couture: Bright, Bold, Bootylicious, Amalia

I knew I wanted to feature Amalia for my fashionista-of-the-week from the moment I saw her walking to Psych class, leggings tucked into her buckled riding boots and a funky bright-blue American Apparel zip-up on top.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Stained-Glass Cookies

Whether you leave cookies out for Santa or just like the excuse to indulge in the sweets this time of year, it's time to stop making the slice-and-bake BS and get a little fancy.

Campus Couture: Casually Cool Jessica

She’s a senior and while she may be dealing with a bad case of Senioritis, her style certainly isn't. No matter what time she wakes up in the morning - sometimes ten minutes before class...and sometimes ten minutes after it's started - Jessica always stays fly and manages to pull on something cute.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: The Bottle Cap Table

It's not always easy to make a college dorm room all your own with the standard res hall-issued furniture you've got in there.
