Pro-Anorexic Site Calls Kate Upton Fat

Our society is full of new fads: new phones, new computers, new styles and, apparently, a new view on what the perfect woman should look like.

Years ago, women aspired to have that curvaceous bod, the body that men loved and clothing flattered, the body that allowed women to look defined yet healthy.  But lately, that image has become dangerously morphed.  Curves have become a major no-no in the fashion world, in the movie world, in the real world.  Girls everywhere are reading magazines with advertisements featuring models who are slim enough to be mannequins and coiffed enough to look like bombshells.  See the problem with this is the definition of what a model truly is, something that I think this society seems to have forgotten.  A model is supposed to be an example, and an example is something representative and worthy of striving for.  Young girls who have not yet even had the opportunity to come into themselves are being taught or told to imitate the scary skinniness some of these “models” represent. Read more …

20 Sluttiest Things People Have Ever Done

What’s the sluttiest thing you’ve ever done? I’m pretty sure this has come up in conversations more frequently than some might be comfortable with, but I’ve never seen this discussion get so in depth until browsing this thread on Reddit. My sex life feels incredibly tame compared to some of these stories – some are funny, some are shocking, some are just plain weird – one response from AlphaRedditor says: ‘I had sex for Cinnamon Toast Crunch.’ Fair play.

Here are 20 of the weirdest, wildest, sluttiest things that Redditors claim to have done. Read more…

25 Under 25 Most Influential Women On The Web 2012

In a world where the internet is pretty much (sadly…maybe not so sadly) one of our best friends, it’s important to look at what we’re reading, seeing, commenting on and see who it’s being produced by. You want to learn about those people you spend time with offline, right? So isn’t it just as important to learn about those who are influential on the internet? Considering the fact that we’re an internet-reliant generation, I think the answer is a resounding yes! After all, there’s a good chance we’ll end up liking what internet “influencers” tell us to like, or that we’ll talk about what they’re talking about.

The interesting, amazing part of the internet is that age is really just a number. We’ve always been conditioned to believe that global success was only in-reach for people who have been working at it foryears. But I’m going to have to disagree with common wisdom because, where the internet is concerned, often the younger you are the more influential you are. Here at CollegeCandy, we wanted to get familiar with the web’s most influential females. We looked at trends and numbers, listened to who you all were talking about, and came up with a list of who we felt were the biggest names out there.

So who are these 25 unbelievable young women, all under 25, who are changing the world and the way we see it…one tweet, comment, post and video at a time? Read more…

9 Things Suri Cruise Almost Learned Firsthand About Sea Org

When Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s divorce was announced last Friday basically no one was surprised (other than apparently, Tom Cruise). We’ve all been expecting the break up since the Great Oprah Couch Jumping Incident but somehow they just kept going. After six long years together, what finally sent Katie to her lawyer? According to TMZ, it’s her daughter’s safety.

Tom is famously a Scientology lover and Katie isn’t. She would deal with Scientology but she wasn’t signing up for every $8,000 seminar/procedure/sacrament it was offering. But, now that Suri Cruise is 6-years-old, her dad was ready to send her the Scientology boat camp Sea Organization. Kids as young as five can be sent to the military like Sea Org. I’m guessing she can’t bring her child-heels or get carried everywhere, which is something Katie would not approve of.

So what is it that Katie’s trying to save her daughter from? Read more…

11 Signs He’s Really Falling For You

Last week we did a post called ’11 Signs You’re Really Falling For Him.’ We thought it only fitting to follow that up with the signs that he’s definitely falling for you. Maybe you’ve just met this guy, been friends with him for years or been dating for a a few weeks– regardless, there are telling signs that will let you know he’s really into you. Some of these seem incredibly obvious, and when they’re happening to you, there is no doubt in your mind that your man has fallen hard. However, sometimes when you’re not experiencing them, you manage to convince yourself that he’s more into you than he actually is. We’ve all been guilty at some point. Let this be your reality check. If you’re not getting the following behavior from your guy, you may want to think about where your relationship is going and if that’s a direction you’re okay with! Read more …

What His Drink Says About Him

Grabbing drinks is pretty par for the course when it comes to dating as a twenty-something. It’s less serious than dinner, more fun than coffee and it can actually tell you quite a bit about the guy you’re spending the evening with. Don’t believe me? Take a look at some of the drinks I’ve listed below. They run the gamut from common orders (see: imported beers, whiskey) to some more…colorful…alternatives (I’m looking at you Tangotini). Whether you want to admit it or not, the guy with the umbrella hanging out of his martini glass is probably more interested in the James Franco look-alike at the end of the bar than he is in you.

Gin and tonic. A classic drink for a classic dude. Anyone drinking a g+t is probably worth your while, or at least will be good for a few laughs (you know, if madras pants and popped collars aren’t your thing). Read more …

Kim & Kanye Are Moving In Together And We Have Advice For Them

Kim Kardashian has pretty much become a household name. We’ve witnessed her relationships build, and we, of course, have witnessed them completely fall apart.  We’ve read about her divorce, her embarrassment, her shame, but it looks like things may be falling into place for this reality TV star. According to sources, it seems her and Kanye West have decided to take their relationship to the next level: cohabitation!

Since most of us watch every little moment of Kim’s life unfold, we’re, of course, rooting for  forever in this relationship. But that means compromise. So what is the proper way to consolidate two completely separate lives and people into one house without TOO much drama? Well, I researched 9 tips that will, hopefully, make this huge change a little bit easier, just in case you were thinking of taking the plunge yourself. Read more… Photo: Fame/Flynet

 

15 Signs It’s Time To Walk Away

There comes a time in most relationships when you must decide to, excuse my Texan, ‘shit or get off the pot.’ Relationship milestones are no mystery. There’s the “getting to know one another and going on dates” phase, the “okay, we’re more than casual but not calling each other boyfriend or girlfriend (you know, because it’s really trendy to have commitment issues these days)” phase, followed by the “I mean, it’s obvious that we’re together exclusively, but we haven’t really talked about it” phase, and finally the “yeah, we’ve been dating for years” phase. Maybe there are a few I overlooked, but at each intersection of relationship stages, a moment of decision arises. To stay or not to stay? That is the question. Progressing through each stage requires a deeper level of compatibility and the willingness to make a larger commitment.  Do you have it? Read more …

How To Be Awkward: At The Bar

Being awkward is an art form honed over many weekends spent singing out-of-key karaoke and talking about people when they’re right behind you. Of course there are a variety of ways you can be awkward, and not all of them are created equal. Surely it’s worse to be the awkward girlfriend than it is to simply be the awkward girl in class, right? Not necessarily. While we’ll likely explore both of those scenarios in the future, today I’m going to teach you how to be the awkward girl at the bar. Because she’s everyone’s favorite. Duh. Read more …

17 Things That Irritate Girls About Guys

Martini talk, anyone? How often have you vented to your best girlfriends about the things that really bug you about guys? I’m pretty sure I hear a complaint at least once a day. In hopes that a few other ladies share this irritation, and in hopes that a few men may read this and spread the word, I’ve compiled a list of the 17 things that I hear girls complain about most. Hopefully it doesn’t sound too much like a bitchy rant! Read more …
