As CollegeCandy’s resident beauty guru, I play around a lot with at home spa treatments. I’ve been a little stressed since moving back home so today I decided to chill out. This mask is great if you’re breaking out, need to exfoliate, or want to brighten up your skin a bit. You’d be surprised what you can make out of the stuff in your kitchen!
I rarely wear matching socks, which may or may not have anything to do with the fact that I always lose one. Regardless, I take it as a reminder to mix things up. Mix and match prints, colors, whatever you damn well feel like. It’s 2012, your shoes don’t have to match your purse anymore. And your earrings don’t have to match either. If you lose an earring, oh well! Wear it with different one from another set. You can even wear a dangly earring on one ear and a stud in the other if you’re feeling frisky. Trust me, it’s okay to take risks.

As much as I love arm parties with lots and lots of guests, sometimes I just like a simple bangle or two. I’ve been favoring this feather cuff that I got on a trip in Arizona when I was in seventh grade. We went on one of those Native American cave tours, and I picked up this cuff and matching earrings. I didn’t appreciate it then, but it’s easily my favorite piece of jewelry these days.
While it’s tempting to throw on every bracelet and watch that you own, remember it’s okay to dial it back and take the simple route.
I went on a mini shopping haul the other day as part of my graduation freakout and cleaned up shop at H&M with some great summer basics. I didn’t think I’d be breaking out any jeans this summer, but after a storm last night today was incredibly cool. Because I’ve yet to unpack, I could only find my green jeans and decided to pair them with a neon tank. It’s hard to tell in the pictures, but the back is sheer so it’s perfect to wear with bandeau or a cute lace bra underneath.
