The 10 Best Places To Waste Time On The Internet

Though the internet has revolutionized research and class help, I spend most of my time at school damning the evolution of technology. During a 12-page paper, I’m not looking up how Disney has changed in the last 30 years (Journalism class problems), but rather what food I can look up yet never end up making. Seems productive, right? As boring as the web can seem at times (is this only me..?), tit always sucks you in with plenty of procrastination opportunities. Here are the 10 best websites to lose yourself in. Check ‘em out!

Anthropologie.com

Do you have an extra $118? Buy some jeans! Oh, you don’t? Let’s cry together. This store is so unrealistic, yet so nice to look at. Online window shopping at its worst. Read more …

The 12 Most Bizarre Products For Women

Contrary to popular (male) belief, women are simple creatures. We like flip cup and Theroux novels just as much as the next guy. Playing the Devil’s Advocate, here, I know that men and women are very much different, and advertisers have to market different things, but c’mon! Women want an electric razor/vibrator combo about as much as men want an STD testing sock. Multi-tasking gone wrong, people.

You think that’s an exception to products advertised towards women? Wrong. Check out the all the weird female products I was able to conjure up! Like the Kush Support for breast separation. The world is weird, y’all. Read More …

In Semi-Defense Of “The Other Woman”

After reading about this woman who’s only had affairs with married men, I’ve been obsessed with reading stories about women who have been the other woman. What always strikes me about these articles in many of the women who write about their experiences don’t really see their behavior as problematic.  The typical rationalizations are that they’re not the ones who made a commitment to be faithful, or that because the men were the ones who initiated it, they’re absolved of all responsibility. Seeing as how I was staunchly Team Angelina, I definitely have a history of sympathy towards alleged “homewreckers”, but I can’t say I’m totally comfortable with the idea that women who are accomplices to cheaters have done nothing wrong.

9 Guys You Should Date Before Settling Down

Do Not Date These Guys

Jen& Justin Engaged!

These two are getting hitched! Read More »

When you think of settling down, Jennifer Aniston isn’t usually the first name to come up. That was until of course this weekend when she said “yes!” to longtime beau, Justin Theroux. Honestly, I’ve always been Team Angie, but it’s so great to see Jenn happy. Everyone deserves to find that special someone, and it seems like Justin is That Guy for her. In their pictures together, he looks just as in love with her as she is with him. How sweet!

But, Jenn has kissed a lot of frogs before getting to this point. Most of them weren’t terrible guys (I mean there was Brad Pitt), but they were frogs for her. Which teaches us girls a lesson. There are a lot of guys you need to date before you can really settle down. Each one is great in their own way and gives you important life experiences. Finding The One first isn’t always the best thing! Don’t believe me? Look through the guys below and  you’ll change your mind.

The 7 Best Indie Movies You Haven’t Seen

Look outside. Does it look like it’s about to rain? According to Weather.com there’s going to be thunderstorms basically all over the US this weekend. Either it’ll be raining, storming, humid or a billion degrees. That does not sound like a fun time outside. Instead, stay in! It’s so much dryer in here.

Obviously with rainy days come movie marathons and Netflixing until the cows come home. You’ve probably seen your favorite movies enough times to recite them by memory, so throw a little indie in there! It’ll go with the over-all gloomy(ish) weather around you pretty well. Not sure what to watch? CC to the rescue! Here’s a great selection, whatever your mood. Read more…

5 Reasons You’re Going To Love “Gallery Girls”

I’ll admit it. I was pretty skeptical of Bravo’s newest reality confection, “Gallery Girls.” Although I do love a good “Real Housewife” or two, it’s not exactly life-changing television. But “Gallery Girls” surprised me, after watching the pilot and fourth episode. The show follows seven girls, all trying to make their own way through the NYC art world. Some want to be photographers, others art sellers and some just aren’t quite sure. Sound familiar?

So here’s why you’re going to love it. Or at least why you have to catch the pilot, airing August 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and decide for yourself. Read more…

5 Things To Do When You Move

For the past two weeks, I’ve been running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to prepare for the biggest change in my young adult life. I am moving to New York this week and while I’m extremely excited, I’m also just as anxious and panicky. I’ve learned that moving to a new city is actually a lot different than moving to your college town of choice.

Also, I always thought when I moved somewhere for a job, whether I was moving to downtown Atlanta a few minutes away or to a different state, I would drive there with all of my stuff. That’s what I did in college. Pack up the car until you can’t see out of the back and then drive off into the Natty Light tinted sunset. Moving to a city far away and to a place where you don’t need a car requires more planning. And since I’m currently without a place to live (don’t worry I’m staying with friends) I don’t have anywhere to put my life. Not to mention my tiny self can’t carry two checked bags and two carry-ons  when I get off the plane. So in lieu of trying to bring everything I own, I’m packing two bags and my parents are shipping things to me seasonally. This is surprisingly cheaper than I thought.

I figured though that a lot of you are probably in the moving process as well, post-grad or college-bound. Here are five things to do while preparing (more or less for your emotional state than anything else). Read more…

Ryan Lochte Has A Hey Girl Meme

So he’s pretty much the biggest thing right now. He’s sexy, athletic, uniquely fashionable and oh-so-adorable.  Like actually just so cute.  And now he’s an Olympic gold-medalist.  No big deal.  Who is he?  I bet you’ve already guessed, we’re talking about none other than Ryan Lochte.

And now, like another Ryan we all know and love (talking to you Mr. Gosling), he even has his own “Hey Girl” meme! Really, it was only a matter of time.

Sit back, relax and just pretend he’s winking at you.  Hey girl, we can dream … can’t we? See more!

10 Tips for Becoming Ryan Lochte’s Girlfriend

Olympic athletes automatically become role models or a special, super-talented type of celebrity in the eyes of us commoners.  They have SO much dedication, so much perseverance, so much spirit.  They give their lives away to the sport of their choice and while doing so, give UP so much as well.  It’s easy to see why we place them on pedestals and Olympic podiums.

But some Olympic athletes have more than just an incredible drive.   They have incredible looks.  Ryan Lochte, oh swoon.  He is just gorgeous.  Unfortunately, though, according to his mother, he only has time for “one-night stands”.  What a serious shame.  But luckily, after doing a little bit of research, I have discovered 10 tips that are sure to win you more than just one glorious night with him, 10 tips that will win you his heart.

Here’s What You’ll Be Seeing Now That Mariah Carey Is On Instagram

Instragram. Oh, Instagram. Thank you for sharing with us the lunches of everyone we know and pretty pretty landscape shots. They really do make the world go ’round. Somehow, Instragram is about to kick it up a few notches. Not with some cool new features or anything like that. It’s even better: Mariah Carey has made an account. The #1 Diva (I really hope she has a cup or something saying that) announced via her Twitter that she’s “finally joined Instagram.” She’s so social media savvy. Although her pictures go all the way back to last Christmas, they seem to have only been uploaded this weekend. I guess Mrs. Cannon (or is he Mr. Carey?) was stockpiling photos.

The account is currently filled with photos of Mariah looking fabulous in various locations (the recording studio, the back of a luxury vehicle, in a gown etc.), this is only the beginning! So what should we expect for her Highness’s Instragram-ing? Read more …
