Who doesn’t love a little extra sparkle and glimmer? Sequins and foil were flashed all over holiday party looks and New Year's Eve outfits. If sparkles aren’t exactly your thing but you still want that little extra flare, there’s a simple way to fix it.

Whether you’re looking to subtly stand out or your roots are in need for a touch up but you don't have time for an appointment, there’s nothing to fear. Glitter roots are here!

While you won’t see any fashionista strut into the workplace with some jazzed up roots on a Tuesday, it is quite possible this look could make an appearance at a concert, a club or anywhere a little shimmer may go a long way.

To begin, simply part your hair. If you can rock the middle part, I suggest this to assure the best look. Don’t get too crafty with your 2001 zigzag part. The glitter will draw enough attention. If your part is naturally on the side, begin with taking styling gel and combing it from your roots down an inch or two in order to press down the hair. Once the part is perfected, with glitter on hand, gel the same part of your part. Afterwards, quickly apply a generous amount of glitter to the desired areas of your part. Repeat as many times as you feel is necessary to get your dream glitter roots. No need for an elaborate dress because your roots will steal the show.

A few hair washes and several shakes of your pillow will be necessary to get rid of all the glitter post-occasion. Try it while it’s hot. C’mon, we all had colored streaks in our hair somewhere in between middle school and high school or dip dyed it for a hot second. Unless your competition dance team did not allow it (like mine).

Skip the salon and dig into your craft drawer for this look.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
