Before we find Mr. Big, we must venture through the love minefields of Petrovskys, Aidans and hopefully little to no Bergers (they break up with you via Post-Its.) The trial and error process of finding “the one” can be incredibly draining, so much so that the existence of true love is questioned.
Are you sometimes tormented with thoughts telling you that you’re not pretty enough? Not skinny enough? Not sexy enough? You’re not alone.
If you are planning an “I hate Valentine’s Day” party for February 14, maybe you should take a sip from a glass that is half full. It is NOT the end of the world if you are single on this specific day.
I see it everywhere. Childhood friends, high school acquaintances, old teachers and babysitters – all people who saw me through my awkward grade school years. They’re all getting married, having kids, or both.
Feeling guilty about that $50 you just spent? Understandable. We live in a world where money controls our lives. Deciding whether or not to buy something is like deciding whether or not to sell your soul to the devil.
You may think you found yourself the boy of your dreams but are you actually just blinded by his drop dead gorgeous looks? His smile might have shocked your ovaries into over drive but it’s time to wake up sister because if you answer yes to the questions below, his looks might be the only thing pretty about him.
While it’s important to branch out and make friends in college, there’s one relationship that we must not take for granted– the relationship we have with our mom. Although she’s no longer around to pack your lunch or sit front row at your school play, she plays just as important of a role in your life now as she has in your earlier stages of life.
Amber Krzys says start living now.
Krzys is the founder of Bodyheart, a campaign created to empower people to celebrate their real beauty and fight back against media and social norms leading to poor body image.
One of the toughest parts of winter is trying not to forget all of our healthy eating habits that we work so hard to maintain in the warmer months. I wanted to make sure that I’m still eating a colorful diet and not going too heavy on carbs or cheese (my weaknesses) so I came up with this wrap recently. Its super filling, not too heavy, and is easy to assemble.
Now that the holidays are over and reality has set in, are you keeping up with your resolutions? Don’t be discouraged if you aren’t. Resolutions have a high failure rate, so why do we feel obligated to change?
Being single is a great time, but having a girlfriend is amazing too. But there will be some changes in your life that you will have to adjust too. Some good, some bad, some annoying, but all worth it.
Are we summer birthday 20-year-olds just being bitter and a bit dramatic? Well, maybe. Okay, probably. But, we implore our older friends to take pity on us. Imagine if you were the one friend who couldn’t head out to The Phyrst or Indigo or any other of State College’s awesome bars. Wouldn’t you be a little upset too?
As well as you know your boyfriend, holiday shopping for him never gets any easier.
“The hardest part of picking a gift for my boyfriend is making it personalized rather than getting the generic Christmas present,” says college of DUS freshman Meghan Hoerz.
If you’re seeking the perfect holiday gift for your girlfriend but are overwhelmed by crowded malls and brands you can’t pronounce, don’t stress. Valley wants to help.
If there was a guide written about how to master finals in the same detailed structure that Cosmo puts out on how to master the perfect winged liner without looking like a scary raccoon, there would be no doubt that Valley would have those how-to steps signed, sealed and delivered to anyone in need. But while that’s in the works, you can get help from another group of boss females that can make sure you are in good hands.
As the saying goes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! This time, I’m not referring to Christmas or Hanukkah or even New Years. No my friends, I’m referring to the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Getting Christmas presents is so much fun, but picking them out for another person is a completely different story. It’s true that it’s the thought that counts, but at the same time if you are buying a present for someone, you want him or her to actually like it.
You can officially eat Easy Mac for breakfast, Ben & Jerry’s for lunch, and use the leftovers for dinner without anyone telling you not to. But just because you’re in college now doesn’t mean there aren’t some things you still have to answer to your family about, and more often than we’d like, the answer they come up with is ‘No.’
One of the best parts of the holidays is all of the delicious holiday drinks and desserts – especially those with the special “holiday” flavors, like nutmeg and peppermint. But what if I told you that you can easily make your own peppermint desserts at home? The best part is, most of these ingredients can be found in McLanahan’s – so pour a cup of cheer and enjoy!
You can’t wait for winter weather so you can finally be reunited with peppermint mochas, snuggly sweaters and close friends and family. What you don’t want to be reunited with this winter? The actual weather part. And we can assure you, neither does your car.
