Do you wear red? White? Blue? Do you wear all three? How much is too much? Should you go for the bedazzled stars and stripes necklace? (That's a firm no in case you couldn't tell.)
What happened to wooing? What happened to a guy and a girl getting together for a date and getting to know each other? What happend to calling a girl to speak to her instead of sending an endless stream of texts? Why are guys trying to arrange and cancel dates via Facebook? It's awkward and unnatural, and honestly, kind of cowardly. And completely unromantic.
I did it. I budgeted. And I learned a lot about myself and my spending habits in the process. It was sometimes difficult, but definitely worth it. Looking back at the experience as a whole I can definitely say that. So instead of recapping this last week for you (which was actually kind of boring) I thought I’d take some time to just go over the finer points and the important things I picked up this month.
It was just a slight slip up. I was on my way to CVS when I passed one of my favorite stores with a big, huge, sale sign in the window. I had some time to kill, so I figured, why not? I’ll just browse. And then I got to the coat section. There it was: a belted, black, mid length coat. On sale. And it was just my size. I tried it on, and yes, I bought it.

I've even been keeping track of my purchases, but the thing is, since it's winter break post-holidays and high school reunions, I've spent pretty much this entire week watching Netflix, reading The Hunger Games, and sleeping until noon. So I haven't actually been spending all that much. And it's made for a pretty easy week.

This month I am taking control of my finances. And if you're up for it, I want you to join me. Because whether you're in a position that requires you to keep track of your finances or not, it won't hurt to know how and why you're spending your money.

It's that time of year again, when the weather is getting colder, and the semester is coming to an end, and there's a reminder of the holiday season everywhere you turn. From Christmas carols to wrapping paper, to baked goods, the usual December suspects are all around us. But nothing truly says the holiday season quite like Christmas movie marathons.
I'll just charge it. The solution to every shopping problem any girl has ever had. It's quick. It's efficient. And swiping a pretty piece of plastic that closely resembles a gift card distances you from the reality that eventually you'll have to actually pay that money.
Yves St Laurent once said "Fashion fades, style is eternal." I've always found this quote particularly interesting because it reminds us all that it's not really so much about the clothes as it is about the way in which you wear the clothes. You can wear the most expensive outfit in the world, but that won't guarantee you style. Style is personal. It comes from within. It's unique and different and inspiring.
That's right ladies, your favorite shows -- like Glee and Gossip Girl -- are coming back. And they're bringing with them a few new friends. But which ones will be sitting at the cool table and which will be kicked to the curb before November sweeps? CollegeCandy breaks it down for you ladies right now.
Rules are meant to be broken. Not always the best philosophy to live by, but it is a pretty good philosophy for fashion. Think about it. The best dressed ladies these days don't exactly play by the rules do they ? They wear what they want when they want, because they like the way it looks, whether that be a body suit or a blazer.
It seems like celebrities these days have to be Jacks (or Janes) of All Trades. If you're a singer then you're a dancer and if you're a dancer then you're an actor. Then comes the fragrance, and then, of course, the clothing line, the last of which can get a little creepy crazy. I mean, everyone remembers the Avril Lavinge era of hoodies and men's ties right? No? Just me.
The first time I tuned into ABC Family was years and years ago. Other channels had been showing previews for an ABC Family drama about a girl and a horse. Still heartbroken over the loss of my beloved Caitlin’s Way (they totally stole the plotline!), I decided to give Wildfire a try.
