5 Reasons Women LOVE Snapchat

Snapchat is described as a fun messaging app for sharing moments. You can snap a pic or record a short video and add: a caption, doodle, or even filters! Depending on your settings, friends can view your snaps for up to 10 seconds once or you can add it to your story- meaning it can be viewed by your friends for 24 hours and it disappears forever (unless screenshot via android ;))

Snapchat has been receiving a lot of love. The company hasn’t commented on the size of its fan base, but the fact that it has surpassed the number of daily photo uploads than Facebook is quite a significant feat.

Evan Spiegel, Snapchat’s co-founder, revealed 70 percent of the app’s users are actually women. Who knew there were so many women on snapchat!?

Let’s finally get into the meat of the matter; what do women love about it so much?

  1. It helps to perk up your day. There is nothing better than getting a funny snap from a friend when you are feeling down.

2. It’s texting on crack! Imagine being able to take a shot of exactly what    you’re talking about, and then, add a doodle and/or add a caption?!

3. POOF it’s GONE! Unlike other platforms the longest snapchat stores an image or video for is 24 hours. Because of this you don’t feel as self conscious when you are posting.

4. Did someone say ugly selfie?! It’s so much fun to send ugly selfies with your friends knowing it won’t come back to haunt you later! Having an ugly selfie competition with your friends is a great way to kill boredom.

5. It shows snippets of your life in motion. Want to show your friends that concert you went to? Now you can! Want to make them see the sights in another country? You can do that too! Snapchat is so quick and easy that you can post or send so many snaps in very little time. Unlike other apps it’s effortless and doesn’t require time deliberating what the best caption would be because the next day you will rewind to zero anyway.

6. We decided to throw you a freebie – cuz well, we love you  guys – so why not?! With the new snapchat update you can ‘tun up’ your selfies to a different level. It’s hard to resist not having hearts in your eyes when you see that burger you’ve been craving- it’s only appropriate for this feature to be added. We are glad Snapchat has incorporated more ways to get insane selfies, in the mix!

Too Cool For School: Fashion Do’s and Don’ts For College (Females)

It’s almost time to hit the books once more, and one of the biggest problems female students face is how to dress for school on a daily basis. Without a doubt, college is nothing like high school, and though you don’t need to create an entirely new you, you will need to make some changes in order to look the part.

The following are some very basic fashion do’s and don’ts for college females to help get through the school year.

DO accessorize

Accessories work like a charm in adding some pizzazz to a plain and ordinary outfit. However, this doesn’t mean you should pile on every single jewelry you have in your collection. Less is really more in this case. Opt for some nice studs or hoops, add a long charm necklace, or get funky with some cute arm candy. You’ll be amazed at how this takes your outfit to a whole new level.

DO keep an eye out for sales

As college students, we know shopping for outfits for school can be quite difficult because of limited funds. One tip, is to take advantage of sales, both in stores and online, which allows you to stay fashionable on a budget while saving money. Be sure to purchase pieces that you can mix and match so you can switch things up a bit and create different outfits.

DO dress comfortably

Dressing comfortably does not mean throwing on a pair of sweatpants or looking sloppy. It is possible to be stylish and comfortable at the same time. The key is to ensure that your clothes fit; not too big, but not too tight to the point where it restricts your movement or reveals too much. Ensuring that your outfit is appropriate for school will make you feel even more comfortable as you won’t attract any unnecessary attention, as well as wearing outfits that express your personal style will leave you feeling confident.

DO use sunscreen

You can use a foundation or moisturizer that has SPF. There is no escaping the sun, so you need to protect your face, especially on campus where one must embark on long journeys in the sun just to get to class. Sun exposure also causes age spots and nobody wants that.

DON’T wear leggings as pants

Substituting leggings for pants should never be done. No matter how attractive you think you look in them, it looks tacky and is inappropriate.  Instead, pair it with a long tunic, an oversized shirt, or even a dress or skirt for a casual look that covers your, uh, ‘lady bits’.

DON’T wear heels on campus

I don’t know about you, but wearing flats from class to class is hard enough, let alone heels. Unless you have an interview or a presentation that you need your heels for (even then, I suggest you bring them in your bag and slip them on when you arrive), you don’t want to be the talk of the town after you wobbled in them and fell flat on your face. Save your six inches for the club and save yourself the embarrassment.

DON’T reveal too much

Yes, I get it. You finally get the chance to say goodbye to school uniforms, and you’re so excited to wear casual clothes to school, you end up wearing nothing at all. Many colleges/universities don’t have a dress code, and so many girls make full use of this opportunity to stroll across campus with their chests and buttocks falling out of their clothes. Cover up and save those revealing outfits for the parties.

DON’T use heavy coverage

Opt for very light foundation and spot conceal where necessary. Too many girls make the mistake of going heavy on the make up. Less is more, also applies in this situation. You never want to look as if you’re wearing plaster on your face.
