Pantry Potential: Make Your Own Beauty Products!

Honey removes dirt from pores and dead skin cells from the surface of your body, while yogurt is an incredible moisturizer. Strawberries have lots of folic acid and vitamin C, which helps clean your skin and close open pores. Milk is great for softening the skin, vinegar will make your hair shiny, and using honey as a conditioner will increase your hair’s moisture.

True Story: My Parents Divorced When I Was in College

I think most people look back on their college years with nostalgia, wishing for the sunny football Saturdays, the insane parties, and even the long weeknights nights spent in the library. I'm no different, of course, having had a similar experience with every other American college student.

As I pack up my boxes once again, I’ve realized that my college dorm décor may not exactly suit for the real world.

After a week long trip, complete with a surplus of roadkilled armadillos and a 24-hour stomach bug that caused me to projectile vomit on a cactus in New Mexico, I have finally made it to California.

Miss Manners: Home-for-the-Summer House Rules

Ahh.. home sweet home. Or is it? Now that most of us are home for the summer, we’ve realized that the break’s over and the spontaneous nights of beer pong and the freedom to do who/what we like are gone.

I’m Torn: Summer School

Ahhh, summer. The sweet, glorious days of summer. Days spent lounging by the pool, building sandcastles at the beach, or lying in bed all day watching old episodes of The OC on Soap Net.

The car has been packed, your roommates have been hugged and you’re only a short car ride away from a summer at home.

Home for the Holidays – A Love/Hate Relationship

Happy Post-Easter-Monday! I don't know about you, but I hit the snooze button 5 times this morning before I could get my ass out of bed. 12 hours of Peeps, Cadbury Eggs and Jelly Beans had me on a serious sugar high last night (I went to the campus gym at 11:30...for real), but left me in some sort of diabetic coma this morning.
