The temperature is continuing to drop, and it seems that fall is slowly leaving and the harsh cold of the winter months isn’t that far away. In order to prep for this, investing in a great winter coat is a must. If you’re going to spend money a coat, make sure it lasts this winter and future seasons as well will be your best bet. I know that not all of us want to wear a typical down jacket from The North Face, but lucky for us, there are tons of warm jackets that are super on trend.
For most of us, midterms are either over or nearing the end. Whether you did well, you're probably just glad it’s over. Midterms bring about high stress levels, sleepless nights and unhealthy habits that make turning in your last midterm feel like finishing a marathon. This relief can make us feel a little too comfortable when the time comes to start the second half of the semester. Once again, you may put off studying until next week and inevitably start writing essays at the last minute. This is why it’s crucial to not get too comfortable after midterms.
Limited-time seasonal items are a delicious tease. They are only out on the shelves for a certain length of time and once you think you can’t get enough, some of the best products are instantly gone. That’s why the best place to stock up on these favorable items are from your local Trader Joe’s. This cult-favorite grocery store provides some of the most unique seasonal products that you'll look forward to seeing back on the shelves every year.
It might be stating the obvious, but the commuter and off-campus life isn’t easy. Coming home after a long day of classes is tiring in itself and those who want a more fulfilling and flavorful meal find it hard to make one in a decent amount of time. Many of us like the idea of cooking more than ordering in or eating out, but the concept of time often gets in the way. Meal prepping for busy people is essential during the midterm season, as it saves you time, money and hassle. Sometimes, life is much easier when you have a home cooked meal, especially when you have it for the next few days.
We love New York Fashion Week, and when thinking of fashion hubs, Paris and Milan might be some major cities that come to mind. One of the most innovative and fashion-forward places doesn’t seem to get the love it deserves, though: Tokyo. Iconic for its Harajuku fashion and being the birthplace of A Bathing Ape, Comme des Garçons and Uniqlo, Tokyo is far from an unfashionable city. From Oct. 15-21, designers showcased their latest and hottest looks, while show-goers, as always, let everyone know why Tokyo is known for its street style.
As summer has ended and we slowly say goodbye to our summer clothes and comforts, we welcome the fall that will turn into winter. As the temperatures cool down and we wave farewell to the warm weather, swimsuits and sunscreen commercials and billboards seem to bombard us everyday in the summer.
We’ve seen them in western films and country music awards. Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Jessica Simpson famously wear them. A staple feature of country and the rodeo, the cowboy boot has a pretty straightforward reputation. Fashion has recently changed that. Shown on models all over the runway, the western leather boot is slowly becoming a closet staple.
The newest way to get turned on is something quite out of the ordinary: solely through sound. The crisp crunch of someone eating tangy pickles out of a jar or the soft vibration of a whisper through a microphone are just a few examples of the sensory-porn that’s taking over the internet. Also known as autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR), millennials are discovering sounds they find to be relaxing or satisfactory on Youtube, where hundreds of vloggers are gaining a serious following for their “brain orgasm” inducing videos. Compilations of people tapping their long, manicured nails on a hard surface or crushing cubes of soap, for example, have garnered millions of views.
What goes around always comes back around, and wearing animal print is no exception. Animal print has continued to be relevant in the fashion world for decades. In the roaring '20s as a printed fur coat, in the '60s during the Bohemian movement in hats and trench coats, in the ‘80s, when leopard print was best worn skin tight as a jumpsuit. Animal prints even managed to make their way into early ‘00s accents and statement pieces. Leopard, python and crocodile skin are all asserting their power as Fall 2018 staple pieces this season, and they’re effortlessly blurring the lines between “want” and “need.”
Due to a change in ownership, the campus convenience stores in the Livingston Student Center, Busch Student Center and Student Activities Center closed this past summer, making it harder for students living on campus to get their essentials. Luckily, digital drug store retailer goPuff made its way to Rutgers this semester to save the day, offering students a quick and easy delivery service app that is open 24/7.
Apple picking and pumpkin spiced lattes are great, but one of the best things about fall is the fashion: cozy sweaters, leather boots and oversized flannels. These are some staples that are most likely in all of our closets, but while these are essentials, some statement pieces should make their way into our closets to add a little more life to our outfits. Why spend money on a piece that will only look good with one outfit? Statement pieces may seem really tricky, but they can go beyond fall and become a piece you love to pair with all your essentials in any season.
It’s Friday night and you have to choose between going out or staying home and watching Netflix. You open Snapchat and see a bunch of your peers hitting the town. Then it hits you: FOMO, or the fear of missing out.
As a college student, it always feels like the end of the world when you misplace your school ID. The RUID is a student’s convenience pass. Not only does it grant you access to dining halls, gyms and library printers, but it also serves as your access key to get into your on-campus residence hall or apartment. And in some cases, for those that have RU express, your student ID is used to make purchases, such as clothing from the book store or food at local restaurants around campus.
Last Wednesday, Oct. 3 may have been "Mean Girls" Day, but today commemorates something much more pertinent to coming-of-age.
Many of America’s favorite fall traditions start in the early days of October. Football season, Starbucks churning out pumpkin spice products by the trough and the incessant need to put “spooky” in front of almost anything are easing us into autumn. That being said, the transition from summer to fall has been particularly leisurely this year, with 80 degree temperatures still being clocked in the past week. Our prolonged days of summer might explain why another yearly occurrence, the start of “cuffing season,” has seemingly been delayed.
From tropical vacations to concert gigs to cute pictures of their pets, practically everyone is sharing the best aspects of their lives on social media. The constant pressure and desire to share your life with your followers plays a role in how millennials are determining and expressing their relationships. When a significant other hits the Instagram page, the relationship immediately becomes official. It’s harmless to post pictures showing off your bae to everyone else, but the issue arises when the relationship doesn’t last.
Wu-Tang Clan said it best: cash rules everything around us. It also places most people in tough financial situations from time to time. Particularly full-time students, unemployed college graduates and a boat load of people who work, as every paycheck goes toward monthly expenditures, such as rent, car insurance and credit card bills. Although it may seem like there is no way out of this hole, there are lots of budgeting solutions that will allow you to live comfortably without putting all your funds toward necessities that are crucial to get by in life.
When imagining color schemes for the fall and winter, we think of neutrals, some burgundys, browns, navy blues and mustard yellows. The last thing on our minds are bright, neon colors. But, this upcoming season is all about blinding fluorescents. As we saw during New York Fashion Week last month, bright, saturated hues made their way onto the runway. While these colors may seem unwearable, it’s easier than you think to incorporate this 80s-inspired trend into your everyday wardrobe.
The need to look and feel beautiful is the world’s oldest desire rooted in insecurity, and in the age of social media, vanity has become more prevalent. So it’s no wonder that many women and men are constantly trying new products that claim to diminish wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and give a natural glow. Although many people stick to a simple routine of a basic face wash and moisturizer, there are a boat load of others that have a recent obsession with adding more steps like toning their skin or using a serum, just to get that much closer to age and pore-defying beauty.
In the last 20 years, the biggest shift in entertainment has been the streamlining of content. The advent of smartphones and compact laptops has caused various creative industries to adapt to our more mobile lifestyle. The music industry is banking hard on streaming, and platforms like Hulu and Netflix brought the same approach to film and TV. Social media has changed (and often condensed) the way we communicate, while print news outlets have pivoted to video to keep consumers interested. There seems to be a quick, one-stop shop for just about everything we need now.
