The 25 Best Things About Being A Grownup

The 25 Best Things About Being A Grown Up

I am turning 25 next week (Libras, represent!). A lot of my friends say you’re not an adult until you turn 25 years old, which is when your brain (allegedly) fully forms. It’s also when you’ve typically settled into adolescence with some kind of job or some kind of direction. On most days I lament getting older. Today I figured why not count some of the things that are actually great about not feeling like a kid who doesn’t know her butt from her brain. Read more on College Candy…

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Helena From “Orphan Black”

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Helena From "Orphan Black"

“Orphan Black” is one of my favorite shows on TV, so who better to channel for Halloween then my favorite clone, Helena. (Or, if you’ve got a gang of girls, go as ALL the clones.) Chances are, you can pull a lot of this costume from your own closet — Helena is all about her army green hooded parka, basic tanks, grubby jeans and rugged boots, just make sure to distinguish yourself from the average street urchin by adding a curly blonde wig and red-rimmed eyes, “Bahhhhhh”-ing at everyone you meet, talking about your sestras, and pulling an array of snacks, like toast, sugar packets and fried chicken, from your coat pockets.

This Prep School Rap Battle Is What A Hogwarts Freestyle Competition Would Be Like

This Prep School Rap Battle Is Like A Hogwarts Freestyle Competition
You Can't Rhyme "Face" With "Face," Bro.

Everything about this is gold.

Some students from the UK went all “8 Mile” on their prep school campus when an impromptu rap battle commenced, reminding the rest of us why we don’t see too many preppy sixteen year olds in the rap game these days. The overall theme of their weak four-line rhymes is definitely sex, and while these kids clearly won’t cut it in the biz, their overreactions are hilarious. They’re jumping up and down, crushing each rapper after every basic joke about sleeping with your mom. One kid even threw his arm crutch. I repeat, he THREW HIS OWN ARM CRUTCH. Basically, this is what I imagine would go down if a rap battle took place at Hogwarts, except Harry would slay that shit.

Here’s Your New Hobby: Cake Decorating!

I taught myself how to decorate cakes with YouTube videos during a year in which I had a job so boring and soul-draining that, had I not started decorating cakes, I surely would have gone insane. The following year, I got a job decorating cakes, and stuck with it for three years. My training was finished on the job, and with practice I got, well, really, really good.

The point is, decorating a cake like a boss is not that hard. You can do it at home, and you only need a few supplies, time to practice and some patience. I’m going to give you a selection of YouTube videos about the various basic steps of assembling and decorating a cake whose advice I can endorse. Keep reading »

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Beyonce In The “***Flawless” Music Video

The question is not, “Will you be Beyonce for Halloween?” it’s “Which Beyonce will you be for Halloween?” My personal fave Beyonce is the Beyonce from the music video for “***Flawless,” because I’ve never met a plaid shirt, pair of denim cutoffs or combat boots that I did not love, plus, her “***Flawless” dance moves are at least somewhat manageable to learn (unlike, say the choreography in “Blow”) and instantly recognizable. Wake up like this on October 31 with the pieces after the jump! Keep reading »
