Being Single A.F. On Valentine's Day

Being Single A.F. On Valentine's Day

“The only thing in my bed tonight is some money, some chicken nuggets, and some birth control”

One night after maybe one two many dollar drinks, my friend called up her boyfriend and said these extremely related words.“The only thing in my bed tonight is some money, some chicken nuggets, and some birth control”. This got me thinking about two things: Valentine’s Day and the fact that I’m incredibly single.

Valentine’s day was cute for a hot minute in elementary school, but now I feel like the general consensus of people is that it’s overrated for sure. Here’s the deal, why wait until February to get or do cute things for your significant other? Why not just be cute all the time? With that being said, I lead you into my next point. I guess I have no right to make the rules when I am, in fact, not even in a relationship. Being single isn't that big of a deal but sometimes, like on Valentine’s Day, I really start to think about it.

However, I’m not about to start on some emo rant about my tragic life of being alone. Because let’s be real, there are some serious perks to being alone on Valentine’s Day. The biggest one is you don't have to get dressed up and go out. I’m sure some people will only Netflix and chill (obviously a wonderful heartfelt sentiment) but you get the point. Instead, take off your bra, get some food, and curl up on your bed and watch that Netflix series you’ve been wanting to dive into since last year. If you're single on Valentine’s Day, it can also double as a great personal day. Love yourself and dig into that pint of ice-cream. I mean Aquamarine said it best when she said “the only men I need in my life are Ben and Jerry”. So whether your bed is full of chicken nuggets this valentines day or your person, I hope it’s a great one.

6 Clothing Trends You Never Saw Until You Went To College In The South

XL tshirt please!

Southern college wear summed up into four words: comfortably casual at all times.

1. Comfort Colors T-Shirts

Who knew I would grow to love a T-shirt brand. It's all I wear now. To class, to the grocery store, to the airport, even to the bar. Comfort Colors T-shirts never fail me.

2. Free People Sweaters

If you go to school in the south, you know the exact sweater that I'm talking about. Every girl on campus has a shrine of Free People sweaters in almost any color they can get their hands on. This sweater in the south is worn over anything and EVERYTHING. The most popular use is over a comfort color T-shirt, paired with Nike shorts, and converse. Where I'm from up north, these sweaters were worn with jeans and riding boots.... no one would ever buy a $68 sweater just to wear over Nike shorts to class. 2 years later, I am all for the sweater over the T-shirt trend.

3. Tennis Skirts

Tennis skirts.... and not particularly worn for tennis playing. Tennis skirts worn to class, tennis skirts worn to darties, tennis skirts worn to the bar. I'll give it to these southern trends, they really do make use out of one clothing item for every occasion. A tennis skirt just allows more room for activity.

4. Nike Shorts... or "Norts," as they say.

Since I am already on the sporty trend, let me address these Nike shorts. Every girl who goes to school in the south has a shrine of these. Any color, any design, two of the same color and design, it doesn't matter. Nike shorts are our holy grail. No one ever sees them because our T-shirts are ALWAYS worn a size L/XL, but these Nike shorts never do us any wrong.

5. Chacos

The ugliest shoe known to mankind. My "Yankee" self will NEVER buy a pair of these atrocious shoes. If I ever came back home to New Jersey wearing these, my friends would never forgive me, and I would never forgive myself.

6. OTBT's

OTB-Wtf? Yeah... that was my first thought when I saw every girl wearing these during recruitment. At first, you think "I'll never buy those", but then they grow on you. And let me add they are like moon shoes, so comfortable.


These are the major trends that you'll see almost every college student wearing once you attend your southern university. Your friend from home may make fun of you for your new outfit choices, but low-key they are jealous that Nike shorts and an XL t-shirt are appropriate for almost any occasion.

Lladró's New Jewelry Lines Are Literally Made Of Wearable Sculptures

Exhibit your refined taste anywhere you go.

Based in Spain, Lladró produces handmade porcelain pieces that range from lighting to tableware to practically any luxury decorative object. Haven built a reputation for handmaking fine designs and producing both contemporary and classic works, it has been a seemingly long awaited, but also surprising discovery to see that their latest venture has been something unique to the brand entirely: Jewelry.

Lladró has been dancing with small amounts of parallel pieces before this launch, but the brand has never quite fully dived into the world of crafting accessories.

Featuring two full collections, their new range of enamel accessories are a step into a new world of creation for the company. Consisting of beautifully finished porcelain combined with plated precious metals, each piece wields its own identity while complimenting the collection it stands to represent.

The Aquarium collection is rendered with cascading waves of everchanging blues that give length to even the smallest pieces. Said to be "inspired by the depths of the ocean and the power of nature," Aquarium is a breath of air to the jewelry industry as a whole.

Lladró's partnering collection, Heliconia, is led by the timeless coupling of white and gold. Each piece was designed with a contemporary touch and an eternal archetype. Molded after the natural beauty of flowering plants, this line is empowering by both grace and underlying tenure.

It's no trivial understanding that Lladró's journey into wearable accessories would be alluringly successful. This extension will surely be a small step in the forces that Lladró will continue to champion in the future, but it represents the conception of a movement in both jewelry and enamel. Giving their audience the option to take Lladró with them wherever they roam is the right way to extend the life of the consumer/brand relationship. Lladró is no longer a brand that is forced to reside at home.
