Classes are out, exams are over, and I am thrilled to announce that outside my window it is a blissful 78 degrees. Dearest readers- the summer season is within reach.

Wanna Go To Harvard? Just Lie!

It's a widely accepted fact that many of us do a bit of exaggerating when it comes time to fill out those college applications.

Why You Can’t Stop Eating…Literally

I have an obsession with cupcakes that is so intense, sometimes, I think that it borders on addiction.
