Hello, mid-semester slump. It's that period after midterms when you're trying to recuperate, catch up on that beauty sleep, and transition out of your uniform of leggings and sweatshirts. Nope, definitely haven't been going on any first dates lately. Well, what better way to get out of that rut than with a fashion makeover worth $1,000—free?   We're partnering up with Coffee Meets Bagel, an online dating site like no other. Each day at noon, you're matched with a new “bagel”—you can either pass on the opportunity, or choose to connect with your match. And since you need to look your best when meeting the one, we're setting you up with a chance to win $800 to shop at J.Crew, plus a brand...

Love nail art? Us too. But how many times have you attempted your own DIY nail art, only to end up with disastrous results (and all this after spending hours trying to do an ombré or draw a cat on your thumb)? Yeah, us too. That's where our obsession with Jamberry Nails comes in—the brand carries hundreds of vinyl nail wraps in all the patterns you could dream of, and they take mere seconds to apply! Get festive with the season with adorable Halloween designs and more, get in on some sisterly love with the sorority collection, and even show off your school spirit with the collegiate collection (there are more than 80 schools to choose from!). As if that wasn't enough, you can even create...

Fall shopping—there’s nothing like it. It’s a time to give our closets a full overhaul and a much-needed upgrade from last year’s wardrobe. But as we stock up on chunky knit sweaters, statement outerwear and dark wash denim, we often forget that our accessories need an update, too. So if you’re finding yourself using the same tote you’ve been wearing around campus for longer than you care to admit, this one’s for you! We’re giving away an amazing 7-piece accessories collection from Vince Camuto, every collegiette’s go-to for the most stylish shoes, bags, jewelry, clothes and more (seriously—they’ve got it all). The prize includes an oversized red hobo big enough for all your books,...

The ultimate accessory you need to have on campus? The coolest pair of over-ear headphones. You know the ones—they're ultra-sleek, come in colors that match your personality, and offer stunning sound quality... enough to block out the people whispering loudly at the next table in the library. We've found the headphones that fit the bill, checking off every one of your requirements: Panasonic's newest Monitor Stereo Headphones, with vintage-inspired style and modern-day quality. They're lightweight enough to carry with you all day, and that super-comfortable ear cushion means your temples won't be sore even after an hours-long study (...or jam) session. You get to choose from four trendy...

Sure, it’s easy to rely on your phone for the time—but where’s the fun in that? As practical as it is stylish, a good watch (or ten) is a must in every collegiette’s wardrobe. But how do you choose just one to go with your varied wardrobe? Thanks to RumbaTime, you don’t have to! Shop dozens of unique styles (like gem-faceted faces, layerable toggle bracelet watches and sporty digital ones) in every color imaginable—all at incredibly affordable price points. We’re giving away five $100 shopping sprees, so you can get a new watch for every outfit! The Orchard Double Wrap is our favorite style for fall, but every watch on the site is so pretty, you won’t be able to stop looking at the time...

We're already halfway into October, which means you should've been on top of your Halloween game... yesterday. Of course, it almost never works that way, and come Halloween weekend, you just might find yourself scrambling to make a pair of cat ears to wear with your LBD. Thanks to AMI Clubwear, that's not happening this year! We've partnered up with this one-stop shop for all your going out needs to bring you the chance to win two $250 gift cards! Almost everything on the site is under $50, and with hundreds of new styles added weekly, it is the place to go for the latest and greatest dresses, AMI shoes, and of course, Halloween costumes 2014. Whether you want to be a sporty ref, a sassy...

Are you regretting opting in for the standard bedding set provided by your school? Realizing the comforter you brought from home (the one you’ve been using since you were twelve) isn’t really fitting in to your new grown-up look? Well, you’re in luck. We’re giving away an entire bedding set worth $170 (including a comforter, pillow sham and matching accent pillow!) from American Made Dorm & Home, your ultimate destination for ultra-chic dorm bedding and accessories. In short—your dorm room is going to reach Pinterest-worthy status. The winner gets to choose from the sleek and sophisticated Cool Grey Quatrefoil set, the edgy-glam Black and White Damask set, and the fun and colorful Sky...

With fall comes some of our favorite outfits of the year: Oversized knits, tons of street style-approved layers and of course, boots, boots and more boots. While a collegiette can never have enough pairs, it can be pretty frustrating to shop for them. You might spot the perfect pair, only to find that they just don’t fit over your calf because hey, not everybody is the same calf size, boot designers! Trust us—no matter what your size, it’s a problem every collegiette has experienced. Let us introduce you to Duo, a footwear brand from across the pond (available stateside via their e-shop!) that just gets it. Among the dozens of styles available, you’ll find classic riding boots, sleek over-...

Stepping out in your favorite beauty look is a total confidence booster, whether you go for something more fresh-faced and dewy, or you prefer a bold red lip and long lashes. And that’s what we love most about Too Faced, a cosmetics company that’s fun and feminine, and most importantly, emphasizes your version of beautiful. To get you all set up with everything you need to create your best look, we’re giving away an 8-piece makeup set from Too Faced, worth $208! You’ll get the cacao-based Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection, which smells delicious enough to eat, and features 16 shades ranging from neutral to smoky; four Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks, which gives you rich color, high...

You survived Rush Week—and you can finally sport your sorority’s colors! As excited as you are to show off those letters, that tote that every sorority girl has (you know the one) is kind of starting to blend in into a hazy sea of Greek letters. Since that’s no way to show your sorority pride, we’ve partnered up with accessories line Ame & Lulu to give you a chance to win a $500 gift card to shop colorful totes, bold wristlets, carry-all weekenders and more, all in your sorority’s colors! You’ll also get custom sorority monogramming, and you’ll score half off the entire collection for your whole chapter! Our favorites? For every day campus wear, we love this canvas tote, which features...

Admit it—you’ve definitely skipped out on a gym session (or two) because the only clean workout gear you had available was a ratty t-shirt…and sorry, that is just not SoulCycle-approved. Well, toss that tee, because with a $500 shopping spree to Without Walls (Urban Outfitters’ new activewear line), you’ll have a whole arsenal of chic-to-the-next-lev tanks, leggings, sports bras and more to wear to your next cardio session! You can also choose from sporty outerwear, thermal leggings and other essentials so that no matter what your exercise of choice—running, hiking, rock climbing—you’re properly outfitted. Between the vibrant colors, graphic patterns and the coolest cut-outs in structured...

When you share a campus with hundreds of other collegiettes, running into someone who’s wearing the same dress or has the same tote as you do is very, very possible—cue the awkward, “Cute bag!” That’s why we love discovering cool new places to shop—and one of our new favorites is ShopbellaC.com, a boutique based in Arkansas. Founded by sisters Laura Walker and Cristie Merritt, the shop is inspired by the Southern charm they grew up around in Atlanta. You’ll find cozy printed cardigans, tunics perfect for lounging in the dorms in, perfect-for-Fall boots, enough statement necklaces to make any jewelry lover swoon and much, much more. The best part is, we’re giving you a chance to win $100 to...

When you’re in college, you’re on the fast track to becoming an adult. This means you need to stock up on grown-up things: thank you notes for your internship supervisor, holiday cards (yes, the holidays are coming up soon), business cards for those networking events—and no, we don’t mean buying those one-card-fits-all packs on your next trip to the grocery store. So where to go? Rifle Paper Co., an adorable paper goods line chock full of the prettiest, hand-illustrated cards we’ve ever seen. Since we can’t quite express our obsession over the gorgeous prints, you’ll have to check them out yourself: We’re setting two winners up with a $250 gift card to shop Rifle Paper Co.’s Personalized...

It’s practically mid-terms (when did that happen?!), which means your most impressive back-to-school outfits are slowly being retired to the back of your closet—suddenly, those wax-coated skinny jeans and heeled booties just aren’t as attractive of options anymore. That doesn’t mean you don’t want to look cute on campus, though—that’s where Molly Miller comes in, a company (started just this year!) that offers easy-to-wear clothing and accessories you can throw on anytime, anywhere for the ultimate casual-chic outfit. The best part is, the brand’s mission is to empower women to be comfortable in their own skin—7 percent of every purchase is donated to the National Eating Disorder...

More often than not, dorm cuisine doesn’t quite hit the spot—you end up having cereal for dinner more than you choose to admit (that extravagant meal you Instagrammed last night? Yep, a #regram). Your college diet doesn’t have to be that way, thanks to Peggy Wang, founding editor of Buzzfeed. Whether you’re comfortable in the kitchen or you’re looking for ways to spruce up a meal that doesn’t require any cooking time, Wang’s newest book, Amazing Food Hacks: 75 Incredible Easy Tips, Tricks, and Recipes to Amp Up Flavor, will give you tons of ways to make all your meals taste top notch. Did you know adding Sprite and sour cream to biscuit mix makes them that much fluffier? Or that adding a...

As collegiettes, more often than not, you’re plugged in—and we’re not just talking about social media. Your headphones are in when walking to class, tuning out at the library, at the gym…as in, the majority of your day. And no matter how catchy T.Swift’s “Shake It Off” is (hey, no shame), there’s only so many times a day you can listen to it on repeat—after round 16, you’re thinking you need to start discovering new music, stat. That’s why we use Pandora One, the music player you can listen to virtually anywhere—access it on your computer, smartphone or tablet. Create customized, ad-free stations so you’re discovering new music based on artists or genres you already enjoy, and only listen...

There’s nothing like new workout gear to inspire us to get to the gym (yes, the struggle can be very real). A new pair of crops or a cute tank is kind of like our version of a pregame pump-up song … though a little “Eye of the Tiger” never anybody, right? We’ve partnered up with the self-proclaimed “betchy girl’s bible” BetchesLoveThis.com to bring you only the best in gym attire: A $500 Lululemon gift card to shop to your Wunder Under-loving heart’s content! You can choose from tons of leggings in chic colors and prints, fitted jackets to layer with this fall, and even cropped pullovers and structured pants you’ll be wearing everywhere but the gym. You’ll also get a classic You Can’t Spin...
