sole society alessandra bag

Michelle Hammond

It’s never easy for me to find a work/school bag. While I always want it to be cute, I never want to invest too much in it because at the end of the day, it’s lugged around everywhere and more often than not, set down on the floor.

It’s a great bag because it looks nice, it’s spacious, it’s comfortable to carry and it’s affordable ($69.95, not bad in the land of purses.) Plus, it’s a bag that can easily transition from being a workbag, to a travel bag or even just a purse. It comes in three neutral colors that you can use throughout every season, too. I have mine in mahogany and I could not be happier with it.

pevonia botanica ligne soleil

Ruthie Burst

Looking for a fabulous and refreshing face product?

Pevonia Botanica Ligne Soleil phyto-aromatic mist is a soothing face spray suggested for use after sun exposure, but can be used at any time to restore moisture.


This product can also be used to ensure longer lasting makeup.  It sets the makeup and moisturizes the face at the same time.

The mist restores the skin’s natural oils and allows the face to glow.  It’s reviving and makes the skin look healthy.

Also, it can be used on all skin types.  It doesn’t clog pores or feel heavy on the face.  It is a light spray that is thin and uplifting.

This spray can be used multiple times throughout the day – in the morning after applying makeup, in the afternoon to feel re-energized, and at night to glow.

Pevonia Botanica Ligne Soleil phyto-aromatic mist is a great “pick me up” product.

rock the crop

Michelle Hammond

While they are certainly nothing new to the fashion scene (nothing ever really is, is it?) there is no denying crop tops are up there on the list of this season’s spring must haves. With the recent return of the high-waisted skirt though, the crop top’s comeback should come as no surprise.

Slowly but surely, this small piece of clothing has gone from being 90s girl band attire to gracing the runway of designers like Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, Chanel House of Holland and many more. Naturally, it has trickled down to some of the more accessible stores like Urban Outfitters and Forever 21. What we may have once deemed tacky, uncool and even unflattering is back and apparently cooler and classier than ever. What better way to welcome the warm weather than by showing off some of that soon-to-be sun kissed skin, right? I still can’t decide if I’m for them or against them but all I can say is: wear them wisely. There is a vast difference between an undergarment and a top. That being said, rock that crop ladies!

style for your iPhone

by Jenna Veldhuis, Elle Finney, Grace Merck

We’ve come to a time where now everything we touch has a design to it, even our technology.  Our phone has become like our third hand, so why shouldn’t it reflect our personal style?

From animal prints to colors in funky patterns, people aren’t afraid to express themselves through their tech accessories.

Not only does a case protect your phone, but it’s an accessory you’ll use all day every day.  Most of our generation uses the iPhone. Rather than all sporting the same generic look, our iPhones should have cases with style, since everyone knows a cracked iPhone is never a good look.

An iPhone without a case is like a girl without sunglasses at the beach, it’s neither functional nor fashionable.
