LUSH Cosmetics’ #GayIsOk Soap Is Sparkly & Fabulous – For a Cause

If you know anything about me, you know that any cosmetic or accessory that is glittery, sparkly, and dipped in gold is right up my alley. So when that product also comes with a way to help out a huge international rights issue, count me in. One of my favorite bath and body brands, LUSH […]

The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight

Do you believe in fate? Destiny? Love at first sight? For some hopeless romantics out there, these lofty concepts make the endless quest for a “perfect” romance totally worth it. Others among us are probably disillusioned with the hackneyed ways these ideas are talked about. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer […]

Gentlemen, This post is for you. I know you are going to treat your lady right and take her out to the fanciest restaurant you know. So here are a few tips to make the night run as smoothly as possible. It’s Valentine’s Day weekend, and now’s the time to pull out all the stops […]

End The Cycle of Domestic Abuse with mark. m.powerment

Can you spot domestic abuse when you see it? Not all domestic abuse is visible. It’s not always as obvious as we’d assume it to be, and not every victim gets as much attention as Chris Brown and Rihanna. Domestic violence includes physical, sexual, mental, and financial abuse and can affect absolutely anyone. Studies actually show […]

The Lowdown on ‘The Lo-Down’

Allow me a second to explain: classes are back in full swing, and I’m already feeling the pressure of keeping up with copious academic readings. (There are only so many PDFs of Austrian philosophical critique a girl can take.) Light, mindless reading is my personal equivalent of watching guilty pleasure reality TV. So, desperate for […]

Library Launch (cont)…

“Hey Pierre, so I know I said that I was excited about this site, but I just got an email from an underage goth kid from California.”  Clearly I don’t have a filter under pressure.  “Is there some kind of setting where I can block these people?”  Freaking out.  I half expected a novel about […]

Library Launch

I never liked group projects.  Just like an episode of Survivor, everyone going into a group project has a desire to vote someone off of the island.  Who’s the kid that’s going to sleep through the meeting?  Not contribute his/her part to the group paper?  The deemed “loser” is all relative in group projects, too.  […]

Keep the Change, Ya Filthy Animal (cont…)

**Technical glitch – sorry for the day delay on the post!!** I completely forgot.  I was a totally different person when he met me.  Long, gorgeous brown locks, perfect part on the side and bangs.  Eye glasses to top off a sexy smart look.  This man was attracted to my post-breakup identity and was staring […]

Keep the Change, Ya Filthy Animal

I beat him to the sushi restaurant.  Figured I’d order myself a Sapporo while I waited – really, the perfect sushi date drink next to hot sake.  Sapporo shows a football watching, keeping-up-with-the-guys type gal, which perfectly contrasts the LBD (Little Black Dress) with heels, while also tapping into Japanese culture.  Apparently this guy lived […]

Bucktooth Betty (continued)…

“You can completely say no,” he started.  “But one of your cavities is perfect for my regional board exams coming up.  I mean, if you gave me the opportunity to fill this tooth, this would be at no charge.” I liked this.  When it came to buying drinks for friends and splurging on weekend getaways, […]
