The weather is finally getting cooler and what better way to make your dorm feel cozier than by baking a simple pie? This recipe is an attempt at a healthier version of the classic apple pie recipe. If you try it out, let us know! My personal favorite way to eat this pie is by adding some ice cream or gelato on the side! Total Time: Prep: 15 minutes Bake: 1hr 45min Ingredients: 8-10 granny smith apples 1 cup of coconut oil (or Canola Oil) 1 cup of flour 1 cup white sugar 1 teaspoons vanilla extract 4 eggs Juice from half a lemon READ MORE

As we’re still struggling with the transition from summer into fall here in Atlanta (I mean seriously, make up your mind. One day it’s cold, the next it’s sweltering) I thought it would be nice to talk about a trend that works regardless of the weather. The trend in question: stripes.     Stripes work on everyone, with pretty much anything. While it’s imperative to find a type of stripe that’s flattering for your body (whether it’s horizontal, vertical, thick or thin), once you’ve find a good fit you pretty much can’t go wrong.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I know I never need an excuse to go off campus and eat some amazing frozen yogurt. In case you’re not as easily convinced as I am, Emory’s chapter of  Delta Phi Epsilon sorority is hosting an event at Sweet Monkey that you definitely won’t be able to resist. This Tuesday, be sure to make your way over to Sweet Monkey in Emory Point for DPhiE’s Sweet Monkey Educational Foundation Proceeds Night. When you buy their frozen yogurt between 6-10pm, a portion of the proceeds will go towards the sorority in order to raise money for the Educational Foundation. READ MORE

Do you feel totally in tune with life on campus, but a little out of the loop when it comes to what’s going on in the world? It’s easy to get stuck in the Emory bubble and feel way behind on world affairs.

Here are some of the best and easiest ways to stay in touch with the outside world so you can be in the know.   1.     The Skimm READ MORE

Flipping through my monthly issue of Teen Vogue, I came across my latest obsession: Ryan Porter bracelets. Founded and designed by the beautiful Krysten Kauder, these bracelets were made to “add something to [the] arm party that also meant something to [her].” She nailed it.  READ MORE

But on the bright side, it's also time to ditch the pretty pastels and pick out some amazing autumn shades next time you visit the nail salon—or from your own overflowing nail polish bag. When in doubt, I always go with Essie. Of course, it can still be quite difficult to pick one color out of all the gorgeous ones available. To make your decision easier, here are three that many girls swear by for the fall: READ MORE
