10 Reasons Why Makeup Is The Worst

We spend hundreds of dollars and countless hours trying to perfect the “cat eye” or the “date night” look that we found on youtube. We don’t leave the house without applying coats and coats of mascara or covering up that breakout on our nose, just for it to be halfway down our face by the end of the night. But somehow it always does. Can we just nationally ban makeup so no girl has to feel bad about not looking as put together as the next?

10) Price

Can we go back to the time where crayons were $5 and 64 of them came in a box with a sharpener? Like who has the money to drop $65 on “highlighting powder”… Like what does that even do?


9) Raccoon Eyes

Yeah, we’ve all been there. You go out then come home too tired/drunk/out of it to take off your makeup and wake up with all of it under your eyes, making you look like you haven’t slept in weeks.


8) “Waterproof”

Waterproof means Water, Soap, AND eye makeup remover proof. You can scrub all you want, it takes a lot more than that. By the time you get all of your makeup out, you’ve accidentally pulled out half your lashes on each eye….


7) Turns Clothes Colors

Every color isn’t safe around makeup. Black shirt? Spilled powder on it. White shirt? Got foundation on it when you were putting it on. Blue shirt? You sneezed and somehow got mascara all over it. Yeah, we don’t know how it always happens either….


6) Never Matches

It’s like you have to buy a new foundation every month. You need one for Summer when you’re the tannest. You need one for September to October when you’re still kinda tan but not too tan. Then you need one for November to February when you’re paler than Casper, then one from March to June when you’re trying to build your color back up….. And who has space for 4 bottles of foundation?!




10 Reasons Why The Bachelor is the Worst

The Bachelor- the only thing that gets us through Monday and makes it acceptable to down a bottle of Moscato in the process… okay well there’s never a wrong time to down a bottle but besides the point….  We love the bachelor but we low-key hate it. As season 20 comes to a wrap, let’s relapse on all the reasons why we rolled our eyes this season…

10) The crazy girl(s) that stays on the show waaaaaaaaay too long (*cough* *cough* Olivia….)

Her voice makes you cringe when you hear it, she’s too self-centered to make it any farther, but somehow she still hasn’t left yet. And once she does…. it’s guaranteed she will be on the “Tell All” show.


9) The twists

You know the previews you see that make your jaw drop open the entire commercial break? Yeah, the same once that aren’t in the same scene as they were first showed. They built all the suspense for nothing…


8) The trash talk

Trash talking behind each other’s backs is going to get them any farther…. Sorry girl, this isn’t high school anymore. *cough cough* Olivia (again)


7) We can’t have Jojo’s wardrobe

Ever since day 1 we’ve been drooling over her rose ceremony dresses every week. From her lounging attire, to her bikinis in the Bahamas. Her hair, wardrobe, body, and everything else is perfect. Even when she was upset about her ex she still was rocking it. Jo, teach us your ways?


6) Unrealistic Dates

Not that a helicopter ride and making out on a skyscraper doesn’t sound like the perfect date, but what happened to dinner and a movie? C’mon Ben, you’re putting all us broke college kids to shame.



10 Reasons Why Dogs Are Better Than Boys

Guys are great and all but sometimes(and by that I mean most of the time) they’re a little too much to handle. Your dog on the other hand-always loyal, always wants to cuddle, and always happy. Now, someone might have said that a dog is man’s best friend but a dog can replace a man.

10) They want to cuddle 24/7

A dogs daily routine reveals around 15+ hours of napping. Chances are when you get home from a long day, your pup will be down for a mid-afternoon snooze too.


9) They’re always happy to see you

You can leave to go get milk at the store and when you come back, it will be like you’ve been gone for hours. Shout out to pups for never getting sick of you


8) No mess

There’s no one else to leave the seat up, get toothpaste all over the sink, leave dirty clothes everywhere, leave dirty dishes in the sink. Unless your pup isn’t house trained, you’ll have a pretty spotless house.

Dog on the toilet

7) They won’t cheat

Both your pup and BF will look at other girls, but who still will come back at the end of the night? Yeah, pup knows not to bite the hand that feeds ’em….


6) Dogs can’t complain about your driving

I mean, they can but all they do in the car is sleep or stick they’re head out the window. They don’t really care as long as they can still do that no matter how many lights you run

…..And you’re lying if you haven’t had a guy complain about your driving at least once.





20 Basic Insta Captions You’re Bound to See Over SB

You smell that? Yeah, it’s the smell of freedom. Freedom from the brick jail buildings, the stacks of books we’re supposed to be reading, and the classes we’re supposed to be attending. We’ve been counting down the days since we came back from winter break. Spring Break, we missed you, you beautiful son of a bitch.

Your Insta feed will blow up with everything, from  your BFF next to a hottie on the beach to that person laying by their parents pool trying to pretend they’re on a luxurious island. No matter the picture, each caption will be as basic as the last. Something along the lines of….

A Beach Reference:

“Life’s a Beach”

“Finally getting my dose of Vitamin SEA”

*palm tree emoji* *fruity drink emoji*

“Nothing beats this view” *wave emoji*

“Beach-y Keen”

“Throwing what we know all the way in ____”


Something about De-Stressing:


“Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination”


A Drinking Reference:

“Cheers to good friends and greater drinks!”

“Wouldn’t want to spend a week drinking Pina Coladas with anyone else”

“Spring Break:1 Me:0”


Country Song or Current Top Hit Reference:
“Ass in the water, toes in the sand, not a worry in the world, cold beer in my hand”

*Anything from Luke Bryan’s “Sorority Girl”*

*Anything from one of Luke Bryan’s Spring Break Albums*

“I got hoes in different area codes”


Being Too Obsessed With Their Little/Big/BFF/BF/ETC.:

“Love you more than half priced margaritas”

“Thanks for being my partner in crime this week XOXO”

“Wouldn’t want to *insert inside joke that nobody will understand here* with anyone else”

“Shoutout to _____ for putting up with me all week and taking care of me”

“You’re my person”



Yeeeeeah, maybe it’s just best to stay off Instagram for the next few days….


10 Things That Made the 90’s For Us Millennial Kids

Ah, the 90’s. What a time to be alive. The time of quirky foods, non-nutritional foods, outrageous clothes, and when technology was not yet on our side…. Don’t know how we lived without iPhones or Netflix….

10) Blockbuster- The most exciting thing about our Friday nights is going to the bar with friends, but way back when, it was going to the video store with your parents and picking up the “newest release” that you never got the chance to see in theaters and waited a month for on DVD. Nowadays, that wait doesn’t exist. Most people download movies the same day it gets released. How did we live back then?


9) Hit-Clips- Before ITunes, Pandora, Spotify, and Youtube came into play there was HitClips. Yeah, those little boom-boxes that played a minute of the latest tunes from Brittney Spears(pre-psycho phase), to Aaron Carter(pre-rehab phase).


8)Kid Cuisine- When mom said she wasn’t cooking for dinner, your face lit up because you got to eat a Kid Cuisine in front of the TV all night… From mac and cheese, to dinosaur chicken nuggets, they had it all. They apparently are still around but hard to find.


7) Sugary Candy- Ah, the sugar coma that started it all. It came in liquids, solids, powders, in ever flavor you could think of. I don’t know how all of us haven’t ended up with heart disease because of all the junk we used to eat…


6) Computer games- Before the App store was a thing we spent hours frying our brains in front of the computer screen playing simulated games with the worst graphics possible. Don’t know how we all found them fun, but somehow we would play them for hours.





10 Starbucks Secret Menu Drinks You MUST Try

Ordering at your local Starbucks can be intimidating. You wait in a long line, then you finally reach the register, you still don’t know what you want. You either never come here so you don’t know what’s good or you always end up getting the same thing and want to try something new. The secret menu can be fun to order off of, but from an ex-barista and the rest of the Barista nation, know what is in it before you order. It will save your barista some sanity, and insure you get the correct drink. Also, some drinks/flavorings are seasonal and vary by location, so don’t get upset if you can’t order a PSL in the middle of July…


10) Black and White Mocha

Order a mocha and add white mocha sauce to it, it does cost extra, but it is worth it. Starbucks uses bittersweet chocolate in their mocha so the taste of white mocha won’t make the drink too sweet to handle. Try it hot or iced, just make sure you stir it up very well. Don’t forget to top it off with whip and some more mocha drizzle


9) Very Berry Lemonade

Kick up your classic childhood favorite with some juice from your favorite refresher. Ask the barista to do half lemonade and half refresher then shake it over ice. You can keep the fruit in it and serve it how it is, or add some syrup to it and blend it into the perfect slushy. Refreshers may vary by season and store, but there’s always one that you can find to mix into your lemonade.


8) Oreo Frappuccino

Try a white mocha frappuccino and java chips blended into it. It is the perfect contrast of bittersweet chocolate pieces and white mocha to balance the drink. White mocha is all sugar-meaning high calories so you might want to switch to 2% or fat free milk on this one.


7) Snickers Frappuccino

Order a java chip (or double chocolate chip if you don’t want coffee) then ask the barista to add in toffee nut syrup and caramel drizzle to top it off. Tastes just like the real thing! If you’re going for looks on this one, ask for caramel drizzle inside the cup. It will come out with caramel drizzled around the sides, a pretty contrast to the frappuccino.


6) Cream Soda

Starbucks isn’t just for coffee anymore, you can now order soda! Like I said, it varies from place to place, but most locations will carry orange soda or root beer. Choose your preference, then ask for whip cream on top to make it into a soda float!





30 Struggles That Only Girls Will Understand

Guys have it so easy. They wake up, throw on the first shirt they see, brush their teeth and they’re ready for the day. But girls on the other hand, it’s a process. They don’t understand all the time that goes into turning us from a zombie to a decent looking human being…. So next time your man yell at you because you’re late to dinner, tell him to cut you a break. It’s a struggle being a girl… And no, he will never be able to understand any of it….


30) The struggle of putting on mascaragirlcode_makeup_600px_blog-only

29) Pulling out half your eyelashes while using an eyelash curler


28) Looking like a raccoon after you take off your makeup


27) Wanting abs and a cheeseburger at the same time


26) Periods….. No explanation needed.


25) Untangling your hair after a shower, or swimming, or having it up in a bun, or being outside on a windy day, or just anything in general for that matter


24) Having a closet overflowing with clothes but still always needing more


23) Ripping your favorite lace thong that costs $12.50… Thanks Victorias Secret


22) Having expensive taste…. in everything.


21) Always being expected to know how to cook like a professional chef




10 Thoughts You Have While Shopping at Victoria’s Secret

Victoria’s Secret…. It’s a sin not to stop in when you take a trip to the mall. Even if you don’t need anything, you come out 2 hours later with two full pink bags in tow. If you choose to order something online, it’s like Christmas morning when your package finally arrives. No matter if you go to buy just one new bra, you come out with 3 bras, 5 for $27 underwear, yoga pants, perfume, a shirt on clearance, a phone case, and that free tote you got for buying half the store. Some say it’s a shopping high. And it is because you’re so high you hit heaven. Welcome, Angel.

When you reach the store/website so many things go through your head. It’s overwhelming and thats probably why you can’t leave without buying one of everything….

10) “Okay, there goes all of my self-esteem”

They aren’t called angels for no reason. Their hair is perfect, their skin is perfect, their bodies are perfect. They’re the definition of flawless. Every girl’s dream is to gain her wings and be a worldwide phenomenon of the Universal brand.



9) “I have a bottle of every fragrance mist, body lotion, lip gloss, perfume, and body wash ever made. I really don’t need more. Eh what the heck its on sale.”

It’s impossible to pass up a bottle of Bombshell perfume when you get a free bag with your purchase. Even though you have 6 backups, you might as well buy another. The scents are iconic, they make you feel like a goddess. You would never pass up the chance to expand your collection- especially when you get free stuff!


8) “Is it too early to buy bathing suits?”

The answer is no. It’s never too soon to stock up. There’s so many colors and styles, but they will sell out soon. Not to mention the full price is outrageous. If you come at the right time, you can find that suit from last season that you kept drooling over at half price. Bikinis are like yoga pants, you can never have enough.


7) “Maybe I should buy some lingerie.”


Spice up time with your man by slipping into something silky, it’ll drive hime crazy….. And for those who are man-less, still rock it. No better way to feel like a bad b*itch than showing off your killer legs in a slip. And who cares if nobody sees it? You get a whole bed to yourself. Who’s the real winner here?

6) “Bought 3 pairs of yoga pants….. does this mean I need to start doing yoga?”

Yoga pants…. Whether they’re cropped, bootcut, leggings, or shorts they’re comfy as hell. Don’t feel guilty about not taking them to your weekly hot yoga or spinning class. You can roll out of bed, go to class, and run your errands… For all people know you’re going to the gym in 2 hours when really you’re going home to eat an entire large pizza.





10 Things Guys Want But Won’t Always Ask For

Relationships are a two-way street. Yeah it’s great when your guy spoils you by bringing you flowers or sending a sweet good morning text, but guys want to be spoiled back. Okay maybe not necessarily spoiled, but it’s good to remind your man that he’s appreciated too sometimes. I’m not saying buy him a yeti or a new watch, but just like girls, guys like the little things.

10) Back Rubs

After his long day of class/work, all he wants to do is lay in bed with you and cuddle. Something as small as a back rub will make him smile and wind down 10000 times easier. The intimacy will get him excited too.


9) A Home Cooked Meal

Most guys are pretty lazy when it comes to cooking (If your guys cooks for you on the reg, marry him). And if it’s not laziness, then they don’t know how to make anything besides cereal. Guys can only eat so much Chickfila and McDonald’s in a week. Treat him to a home cooked meal like his mom would make after a long day. Even if it’s as simple as chicken and rice, he will appreciate the effort and the thought that you put into it.


8) Bjs

Needless to say, guys will be guys. No, the hormones won’t go away. Guys won’t always ask for it but if you put the offer on the table, it’s almost a guarantee that your guy won’t turn you down. Warning: it may lead to more


7) Sweet Texts

If you don’t have time in your day to plan an extravagant night out with your guy and you know he’s having a rough day, just send him a sweet text to bring him back down to reality. It will cheer him up and help him get through his stressful day with a smile on his face.


6) Date Night

Oh, the constant date night battle of “where do you want to eat” “I don’t care. What do you want” “I don’t care, you choose”…. Every guy’s worst nightmare. Take him out of his misery by planning a date night for the two of you. Pick a restaurant, make the reservation, and get movie tickets for a show you both would enjoy. And for bonus points, pick up the dinner tab and share your popcorn.




How To Stick To Your New Year’s Resolutions

Every year it’s the same thing….. “I’m gonna stop partying as much”, “I’m gonna lose 10 pounds”, “I’m gonna do better in school”, “I’m finally gonna get over my ex”, “I’m gonna be a better person”. They’re all great resolutions but by the second week of January, they’re out the door. We all pick a resolution that we know we can stick to but with so many changes happening in our lives, they get put on the back burner. Make 2016 different by making your resolution a top priority. You don’t have to achieve your goal overnight, make a plan to make small steps in the right direction every week.

Partying: So in 2015 you constantly wore the party hat, but in 2016 you want to get serious and change your priorities. You don’t have to rid your weekends of downtown or your favorite club, just pick and choose your nights out. Nobody needs to go out more than 2 or 3 nights a week. If you have serious FOMO (fear of missing out) and you must go out with your gals, volunteer to be the DD. Your girls will worship you, you won’t run up a pricey bar tab, and you don’t have to regret making out with that dud at the bar…. But the best part, you can actually be productive the next day rather than being stuck in bed with a killer headache.

If you’re that girl that is known for chugging beers faster than the guys than learn how to pace yourself. Drinking shouldn’t be a race to see who can get drunkest. It’s a time where you let a little lose and have fun with your friends. A night on the town is a marathon, not a sprint. You actually wanna make it to the bar and not just to the pregame. Have fun, but learn your limits.


Losing weight: It’s not going to happen overnight. It will take time and perseverance. Don’t lose weight to fit into a size 0 again, lose weight to become healthy and love yourself for you. Start by making a plan that fits you. If you don’t have the time or money to go to the gym, buy a small set of dumbbells and find some at home workouts on Pinterest. Run or walk outside a few times a week. If you have a gym membership, again find workouts on Pinterest and set up a routine of workouts for different parts of your body such as abs, legs, chest, arms, etc. Whether you’re working out at home or in a gym, find a friend to workout with you. You can motivate each other and workouts go by faster if you have someone to gossip to.

Toning up is 20% gym and 80% eating healthy. Yeah, it’s hard to resist late night Taco Bell or pizza when the option arises. Take small steps, try and limit yourself to eating fast food about once a week. If you have to eat on the go, find the healthiest options. Fresh vegetables and fruits are best and will fill you up. Soda? Cut back completely if possible. You’ll start to notice a difference in your stomach in just a week or two. That goes for mixers too, for nights out try fruit juices instead of sodas. You won’t get that sugary rush and all the antioxidants from the juice will help your hangover the next morning.

Don’t ward yourself completely of unhealthy foods. Pick one meal a week to pig out. Have a slice of pizza and a piece of cake. You deserve it. Just don’t get off track the days following that.




An Open Letter To Leggings

Dear Leggings,

Thank you for coming into my life. You are the best thing that’s ever happened to me. You always know how to make my butt (or the nonexistence of) look amazing without having to endure the torture of leg day at the gym.


I can pair you with anything and I will always be comfortable and look decent enough to go out in public. Did I sleep in you, roll out of bed, and go to class? Maybe. Can you tell? Nope…. Because let’s be real here, norts are comfortable and all but you can only wear them with so much. Have you ever worn norts with riding boots? Exactly, you can’t. Thank you for helping me realize what love is again after my harsh break up with sweatpants. The baggy look wasn’t working for me. They didn’t compliment me they way they should. I couldn’t go out in public with them. They were never clean cut. Although they’re great to hang around the house with, I wouldn’t ever step foot out of the house with them…. What about jeans you may ask? Oh you mean that death trap that takes 20 minutes to fit over my butt that makes it look saggy? Yeah, no thanks. I like being able to move.


Whether you’re from Nike, Lululemon, Target, or Victoria’s Secret, you can always be paired with something in my closet. Whether it’s a bright neon tank top, a shacker shirt, or a sequin top, you can always give me a new look every day. It becomes acceptable to wearing leggings every day of the week because you’re so versatile. For a long night out you’re my go to. Who wants to wear a mini skirt that rides up all night and that makes me not able to breathe? Not me. I’ll wear my favorite black leggings and look good while not having to worry about being uncomfortable. You’re thin enough to not make me have a heat stroke in the club but you’re perfect for helping me bear the walk of shame home the next morning without freezing my butt off.

No matter what everyone else says, you are most definitely pants. So thank you on behalf of the entire female population (and probably male), for existing and helping me and my butt look good on every occasion..Dianna_i_love_you_obviously



15 Things You Rather Do Than Study For Finals

The end of the semester is so bittersweet. You finally get to go home for break and you never have to sit through another day of that lecture that you always end up falling asleep in. Although, you have to pass finals to get there first. Finally cracking open that $100 textbook, highlighting until the entire page is yellow, writing until your hand cramps. There’s a million things you would rather do than sit in the library brain dead for another minute….

15. Go through recruitment again

A week of losing your voice, standing in heels for hours, and insomnia would be better than trying to memorize all of the elements on the Periodic Table for Chemistry.635553957588577002-442030915_Legally-Blonde-Elle-Woods-GIF-Sorority-Recruitment

14. Go on a bad Tinder date 

Nothing’s worse than realizing you only matched with someone because his dog is cute and he ends up having no personality whatsoever. But I mean… at least you got a free dinner out of it, right?

13. Never Eat Pizza Again

Let’s be real here…. Pizza is your one true love. It solves all problems and can never break our hearts. But who wouldn’t give it up to get through finals?3-Eat-Pray-Love-quotes

12. Spend 5 Hours In The Gym

Even for the gym rats out there, five hours is a little extreme. Some of us can barely go up a flight of stairs without being out of breathe at the last step.rs_500x271-150508135356-tumblr_meso4ltNUh1qmxhobo1_r1_500

11. Give Up Your iPhone

Okay….maybe not. It’s pretty much your lifeline.tumblr_nfqjbnFWVu1tsxx7vo1_500
