Expectation Vs. Reality: The Walk Of Shame (As Told By GIFS)

Walk Of Shame

Ah, the “Walk of Shame” – every college girl’s nightmare. While I prefer to call it the “Stride of Pride” there are definitely inevitable questions I will encounter on my journey. Will there be a hoard of immature frat guys clapping as you exit? Will you accidentally leave something at the scene of the crime? Will you seriously have to walk miles to your home? Perhaps. This is where your expectations might not meet with reality. Find out how it usually goes down on College Candy…

This Couple Broadcasts All Their Fights On Twitter — Brilliant Idea Or Horrible Idea?

Twitter Relationship Fights

When I first started to read the New York Magazine article about a couple from Chicago that broadcasted all their fights on Twitter, I was skeptical. I thought: Ugh attention whores! They’re as bad as the junior high couples on Facebook who writes passive-aggressive comments about each other. Get over yourselves! Check out some of their most hilarious and also relatable tweets on College Candy…

True Life: I Hate My Mother

hate my mother

My mother is vindictive, controlling and outright mean. If I could list the ways she passive aggressively told me I was fat, told me my boyfriend was too stupid, too nerdy, too poor, to high maintenance, whatever—if I could count the times she’s implied I was stupid, that my only success would come with marrying a wealthy man or that what I was doing was just not good enough—I’d have a very long list.

Are You A F**king Feminist?

fucking feminist

Last week, Kelly Clarkson confused a lot of people by saying that she’s not a feminist. Actually, it wasn’t Kelly’s denial of feminism that confused people. I’m pretty sure Kelly Clarkson would be pissed if she found out she were getting a smaller cut of her record sales than the male musicians on her label. I’m pretty sure she’d be pissed if someone told her that a singing career isn’t appropriate for a woman. Read more on College Candy …

New Anti-Rape Shorts For Women Have Special Locks To Prevent Sexual Assault

Rape Proof Underwear

A company called AR Wear is offering a wearable line of protection for “when things go wrong”. What does that mean exactly? Well, to put it bluntly, they’ve invented anti-rape shorts. AR Wear has taken their product to Indiegogo to gather funding to make these shorts a large-scale reality. Read more on College Candy…

I have NO IDEA how people are eating these cakes. Some of these images hit a little too close to my sense memory and make me gag. On the other hand, it’s cake and who would ever say no to cake? See 14 more scary-ass Halloween cakes on College Candy

Plus-Size Model Robyn Lawley Talks Dangerous Thigh Gaps

thigh gap

Plus size model Robyn Lawley penned a wonderful post on The Daily Beast about the dangers of thigh gaps and “thinspiration.” What I especially liked about her post was that she avoided body shaming of any kind while making valid points about how the media, “thinspo,” and thigh gaps can erode the self-esteem and body image of women.

Robyn writes about how disturbing the so-called inspiration has become, “Everywhere online, users are posting aspirational pictures of thigh gaps, used as inspiration for weight loss and dieting. ‘I want the thigh gap. Right now, I could start a fire b/t my thighs,’ one user laments on Pinterest. ’No goal was ever achieved without thigh gap.’”

Remember Robyn is a successful plus size model who was featured in H&M‘s swimwear campaign. Robyn is celebrated for the body she has, she’s paid to have the body that she has, which is bigger and curvier than standard models, yet that doesn’t mean the world is kind to her.

15 Celebs Dressed As Other Celebs For Halloween

15 Celebs Dressed As Other Celebs For Halloween

Paris Hilton dressed as Miley Cyrus for Halloween and is she is rocking the look. I guess she looks, “hot.” Her Instagrammed photo says, “Twerk or treat,” which might be the quote of a generation. As we predicted (and just about everyone else on the planet did) Miley’s VMA performance would spark one of the hottest costumes this year. Perhaps more so than Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” look or Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” unitard fierceness. Hugh Hefner and, wife, Crystal Harris suited up as Robin Thicke and Miley, which is a testament of the twerker’s cultural reach. Seriously, Hugh Hefner is like 90,000,000 years old, I can’t imagine that guy listening to Bangerz. 

What’s best about celebrities dressed as other celebrities is that it makes them seem sort of normal. It shows how much the media’s image of one celeb appears the same to another celebrity. Jennifer Love Hewitt’s “Brangelina” (in the gallery at the link) is spot on but also shows how much Brangelina is defined by how many children they’ve adopted together and all the paparazzi photos we see of the family traveling as a pack. Read more on College Candy…

The 10 Best Justin Bieber Pumpkins Ranked

Justin Bieber stans and Halloween are two of my favorite things so I figured why not combine them? Celebrity fans can be intense sometimes but there are none other like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber stans who are quick to pull the trigger on anyone with an inkling of negativity directed at their king or queen. I understand loving something that much, I stan for Britney and while I can enjoy making fun of my Godney, for someone who is really young (and possibly lacks tact) viciously diving into a fandom can be a whole lot of fun because you get friends, creativity and community out of it.

Those three things can breed only one beautiful thing: fan art. On holidays that means all kinds of random, crafty, Justin Bieber-themed projects from stans that are both exceptionally creative and exceptionally not. Read more at College Candy…
