Tomorrow is Halloween and you still don't have a costume? Normally, this would be a great time to panic, but before you run to the costume store, did you know you may have a costume waiting in your closet? Just a few simple items you may already have could be put together to create a perfect Halloween costume, saving you a costly trip to the store. Check out these costume ideas.
A black and white striped shirt could be used for multiple costume ideas. If you have matching striped pants, then pair these two together and -wallah! You're now Robin Thicke! If you want to be a little scarier, add face paint and green hair dye and you can be Beetle Juice instead.
I really do love being single. Waking up in my twin bed early every morning to the cold air conditioned room, and to see one person beside me. That one person is no one other than my roommate, who sleeps in her own twin bed. I begin each day listening to "Treasure" by Bruno Mars. Oh! It's no wonder I'm still single, indeed. I like my own space, I can get "ugly" whenever I want. Not one guy can see those moments. Let's enjoy these moment shall we.
As much as I love being single, I have to admit I hate being single sometimes. All a girl wants is to hold hands with a good smelling guy. I have those days that I'm so pessimistic about love and relationships, you better stay far away from me. So here's to the single gals! It's time to celebrate why we hate being single sometimes.
You're new to the school and have not seen one familiar face yet. It can be frustrating when entering college and having to start all over with friends. I remember when I first started school, I instantly thought my roommates would be my friends, but that didn't happen. In fact, my roommates had their own lives and friends. I still enjoyed them as roommates though. Below are some tips that helped me gain friends, and will probably do the same for you.
Looking back at high school memories brings back lots of good and bad times for me. Although I am very, very, very glad it's over, there are a few memories from my years in high school that I do hold fondly. One of them was my very first high school pep rally that included the greatest pageant of all time.
Fashion has always been something I've admired, but haven't really been able to grasp. A I mentioned before, I'm tired of my just rolled out of bed style and this semester is the time for me to change it. In my quest to discover what works for me, I've found some awesomely stylish women to look to for inspiration. I look to these ladies for fashion tips, styling muses, and out of the box ways to mold my own style. Check em out.
I want to nominate Chriselle as the ambassador of chic. As a wardrobe stylist,Chriselle knows her way around the closet and gives people like me lots of tips on how to dress well. Whether it's how to layer, or getting the perfect arm candy, Chriselle is a great source for style inspiration. I especially love her YouTube channel where she uses creative videos to show her viewers everything from transitioning outfits, mixing prints, DIY projects and more.
Roommates can be unpredictable. Some are clean, and some are filthy. You may think you have the worst roommate ever, but none are like the one's on the list below. After talking to friends who have told horror stories about their roommates, I couldn't help but have a part 2 to the "Worst Roommate Ever!" post I've done previously.
(L-R)Me, Her Campus President Windsor Hanger Western, and Shannah posing for the camera
Last Friday Shannah and I were able to go College Fashion Week Auburn hosted by Her Campus. It was an awesome night of cool fashion, swag, and Her Campus love. Even though we had a bit of trouble getting a rental -and then getting lost -we had a great time at the show and even got to meet Her Campus Co-Founder and President Windsor Hanger Western!
Lizzie McGuire was my favorite show growing up. I used to watch the show 24/7 on Disney Channel. I wanted my middle school year's to be similar to Lizzie. Okay- maybe not being tormented by Kate Sanchez, but living Lizzie's life in middle school would be pretty awesome to me.
I love Kahi! She is my favorite K-pop singer, rapper, and leader. After leaving the group After School, Kahi started to take the solo route. Which wasn't a shabby idea! She released a song and video "Come Back You Bad Person" back in 2011.
If it wasn't for the BET Awards show, I would have never known about Michael B Jordan. Seeing him standing there presenting an award with Forest Whitaker made me want to attack the T.V. He has the sexiest lips and nice brown skin.
So last month I finally turned 21 and became an official adult. I didn't feel magically different after this day-but it was awesome to celebrate it with my family and friends. Over the last few years I've changed the way I've viewed lots of things in my life. I've met many people and experienced many things that have allowed me to be more open minded, gain confidence, and mold me into the woman I am today. Here are just a few things I've learned about life and myself:
1."If you don't have the courage to take a chance your life will never change." Great quote I got from Maureen, an amazing woman I met on a plane ride to Philly.
I was really excited to go see Baggage Claim ever since seeing trailers for the movie earlier this summer. It had a great cast and looked like a fun film to go watch. So Shannah and I went out opening weekend to a show. Baggage Claim is a romantic comedy that follows Montana More (Paula Patton), a flight attendant who feels the urge to get married after her younger sister (Lauren London) gets engaged. In a desperate attempt to find a man, she plans on revising her past exes hoping that one of them will eventually be the one.
The only thing we knew about college before we got there was what we saw on TV. Everybody was in a sorority, drunk, and it all looked easy and fun. TV lied. Finding our space, figuring everything out, and taking our first steps into adulthood were all things we had to deal with. We want to bring you our college experience -the good, the bad, and the ugly -and teach you what we're learning along the way. That's what the Students' Lifestyle is all about.
