The Weekly Ten: New Year's Resolutions You Can Keep

It’s a new year, and you know what that means; it’s time to start working on those New Year’s resolutions. But before you start jotting down those promises take a minute and really think about this. New Year’s resolutions almost always involve giving something up, and making sacrifices. And that negative approach makes you all the less likely to keep them.

Save Money and Look Great By Doing It All Yourself

As college students on a budget, we sometimes have to sacrifice our favorite beauty regimens in favor of our weekly trips to Dollar Beer night (or maybe we are actually being responsible and shelling out a few hundred dollars on a semester's worth of textbooks). But just because we want to save some money doesn't mean we have to look like dingy hags with 12 cats and a knitting room.

Summer Job Got You Down? We’ve Got 7 Easy Ways to Lift Those Spirits!

Even though summer should be all about relaxing and enjoying the sun, many of us are so busy with our own internships and work that we often forget to take care of ourselves. And even when we do, pampering on a budget seems almost impossible. (Um, hello $65, one-time facial). Pretty soon we're pasty, tired and moody to boot.

CC Beauty Live: The Perfect At-Home Manicure

I remember the days when I would go to the nail salon with my mom and she'd pay for our mani-pedis. Yeah, now that I'm in college, those days are long (and I mean LONG) gone.

Pull Yourself Out of That Rut!

For a few weeks, I was in a rut - a big, blah rut that I couldn’t seem to find my way out of. I was grouchy, apathetic, and basically bored with everything. My self-esteem was not at its usual high-point, and I had no idea what the heck was wrong with me.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Look Hot with Nail Art!

You don't have to be a Monet to do nail art, because it's basically as simple as paint-by-number. If you can copy that complicated stats diagram into your notes, then trust me, you can put a gorgeous sprig of florals on your nail. Plus, your friends will be totes jealous when they all drop twenties on French manicures and your nails look a zillion times better.

Your Back-to-School To-Do List

We hate to be bearers of bad news, but it's August — meaning the glory days of sippin' summer cocktails and rapidly developing skin cancer at any locale offering a mid- to large-sized body of water are, unfortunately, coming to an end.

Makeup 101: Color Me Neon

Flip flop and strappy sandal season is upon us! Woohoo! That means it’s time to make your toes look pretty, because, let’s face it, they probably look pretty gross after being stuffed in a pair of boots all winter. Grimy toenails are the perfect way to ruin a hot new pair of sandals (not to mention creep out everyone around you), so it's time to give them a little TLC.

When shopping, I often find my wallet trying to convince my mind that the skirt, the moisturizer, or the heels in front of me are worth the outrageous price tag. But after I make the costly purchase, I wonder—was it worth it? To help answer this question, I’ve compiled a list of things that I feel are, and aren’t, worth the splurge during our sad and painful recession.
