Talking With Color: All-Black →  December 16, 2014

Black on black on black: the fashion statement that says, “I’m a boss and I mean business” or “clear the way, I own this joint” or even, “don’t mess with me because I’m too fierce for you.” In a nutshell, black spells boldness, and, done with pizzazz, can exit the sphere of ‘she/he looks utterly […]

The Biological Basis of Beauty: Gross Makeup →  December 15, 2014

I love makeup, I love applying it, and I love seeing the transformation.  However, what I don’t particularly love is what’s in makeup.  While makeup can contain good stuff like antioxidants and sunscreen, it also has ingredients you would never want within a 10-foot radius of you.  If you love makeup, but are easily disgusted, […]

The WALK Meets: Adorn by Sarah Lewis →  December 15, 2014

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Sarah Lewis at her boutique on Frankford Street. The store was beautifully laid out, with necklaces hanging from the ceiling and crystals embedded into every corner. The store was brightly lit and the colorful backdrop of the store was the perfect showcase for her earthy and whimsical jewelry […]

Beauty Crush: Mila Kunis →  December 12, 2014

  Mila Kunis knows what makeup works for her. On the red carpet she almost always rocks the same look: a bronze, heavily lined eye and pink lip. She has risen to fame for comedic roles, like her starring role in Friends with Benefits, as well as more serious roles, such as Black Swan. More recently, she’s made […]

The Biological Basis of Beauty: Sleep →  December 11, 2014

With finals coming up, your probably wondering how you’ll find enough time to study.  The first thing I give up is partying.  When that’s not enough, it’s cleaning.  My apartment goes to hell when I have too much work because I’m apparently the only one who cleans it… but that’s beside the point.  Next is […]

Festive Flavor Faceoff: A Budget Bitch’s Coffee Comparison →  December 10, 2014

This holiday (and finals) season, college students have a lot to be thankful for—and several reasonably priced holiday lattes to be grateful for, too. As a coffee-adverse college freshman entering her first finals week, I decided there was no time like the Christmas season to hop on the bean bandwagon. I convinced my coffee connoisseur family members […]

Get Your Kicks →  December 10, 2014

There is no denying the ease and convenience of a nice, black pair of leggings. I attempted to forsake the legging-as-pants mania, but there was no getting around the fundamental merits that leggings possess. Among leggings’ many attractive attributes, there are two primary features that appeal to an on-the-go college student: (1) they go on […]
