8 Under $20: St. Patrick's Day

I've always been a big fan of St. Patrick's Day, and not just because I'm Irish. There's so much about it to love: beer, Irish whiskey, corned beef and cabbage, parades, and just the general merry feel to the whole day.

We've All Been There: Day Drinking

You’ve got a big day planned: 7am bloody marys, 9am flip cup tourny, a burrito break, then lots and lots of green beer. 18 hours of boozing? Psssssh. It may sound like a lot, but you’ve been training for a day like this since you stepped foot on campus.

Fashion Porn: Getting it on with St. Patrick

With just a week away from one of my personal favorite "holidays," it's time to start digging through our wardrobes looking for that pot of gold, otherwise known as green clothing to wear on St. Patrick's Day. If you don't wear green on a regular basis, it's a good idea to stock up on a few things now so you don't give drunk frat boys a reason to pinch you

CollegeCandy's Guide to Day Drinking

As college students, we are all too familiar with the idea of drinking during the day. But for some reason we always decide to go balls deep by 9 AM! And by the time we realize it was a stupid idea, it's way too late to turn around. So by 6 PM you're hung over and wanting to kill yourself...which means no bar hopping to finish off the night.

St. Paddy’s Day – The Aftermath

So St. Paddy's Day 2010 has come and gone and if the giant foam hat I discovered in my bed this morning (that I don't even remember wearing...) is any indication, the day was a huge success. Not a success: my brand new pillow cases that are now permanently printed with glittery green shamrocks that were once adorning my cheeks.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

From everyone at CollegeCandy, have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day! May it be filled with green beer, Irish car bombs, greasy pizza and more green beer.

The Do’s and Don’ts of St. Patty’s Day

Every St. Patrick's Day when my alarm goes off at 7 a.m., my half-Irish heart flutters as I anticipate the long day of debauchery ahead (I'd like to note that I've never scheduled a class earlier than 9:30 because I won't get out of bed for it, but I will GLADLY rise with the sun for the promise of beer).

Your St. Paddy’s Day Survival Guide

St. Patrick's Day is a college student's dream come true. Well, I feel like any excuse to drink green beer and wear a "Kiss Me I'm Irish" pin is a dream come true. I'm not Irish at all, and can respect St. Patrick's Day and all it has to offer. Especially since last year, I managed to sport a neon green wig in public all day long and closed the night out ordering hash browns at Perkins at 3AM.

Intro To Cooking: Simply Splendid Sugar Cookies

For some reason, sugar cookies make me think of Spring. Maybe because they’re light, sweet, and I could eat about seven. Alright. So that last thing has no coloration to Spring, but I can eat my own weight in sugar cookies.

Weekly Wrap Up: Kiss Me, I’m (Not Really) Irish

St.Patrick's Day week has officially begun its course, and I am looking forward to it (since I just discovered everyone celebrates before, after and during the holiday). Even though I do not have a lick of Irish in me, you better believe I am sporting my neon green wig and the rest of my green ensemble. From now through the end of March. And since everyone is sure to be consuming lots of green beer this weekend, it's good to know that we'll all be better off for it.

Fashion Porn: Green Orgy

I'm going to be a little blunt - I personally think that dressing up for holidays is a little lame. There are, however, 2 exceptions 1. Halloween (duhhh) 2. St. Patrick's Day.

Go Green For St. Patrick!

As Kermit once said, “It ain’t easy bein green.” But Kermit obviously hadn't experienced St. Patrick's Day. If he had, he might know that being green ain't such a bad thing.
