Hey ya’ll! I’m so excited that I get to continue with this awesome series of DIYs, probably just because it means I get to browse Pinterest and the Internet looking for fun ideas that would love to do and I know you will too! This week I decided that I want to show you guys how to do a glitter letter pumpkin. I’ve seen this a few places, so it’s not completely my idea, but I thought I would still show you guys how to make one in your own style! photo credit: Time: about 30 minutes READ MORE

A New Old Way to Communicate

By Abby Fields
October 23, 2014 - 8:00am

I'm in the midst of a quarter-life crisis. Since I started at KU last fall, I have had a plan. I am pursuing a Bachelor of Sciences in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. I have done undergraduate research since my first semester, and my faculty mentor has started to plan for me to take on my own project. The plan is to get a publication to make myself a more impressive grad school applicant. This is how you become successful in research. But I realized that I'm preparing myself perfectly for a career that I don't want. I don't believe in research as it exists today. READ MORE

Even before you have your first conversation with KU freshman Paige Krug (@thats_sopag) you can tell that she is a bubbly, funny, and artistic kind of girl.

In appreciation of this, I asked Paige some questions to find out more on how she views fashion and where she gets inspiration for her standout style. READ MORE

It’s been said many times in magazines, commercials and you’ve maybe even said it a few times yourself, but it’s true. Eyebrows are the frame of the face. Not only do your brows give your face some major definition, they are also a part on your face that is completely under your control. They are one of your beauty assets that you can alter to your liking with minimal damage. Dying your hair is fun but is not always a great choice if you want to keep your hair healthy. Cutting your hair differently will have you feeling fresh and new, but after the cut is done, you have to wait a bit to change it again. Eyebrows, on the other hand, give you much more freedom and flexibility. Although brows seem small they can make a difference and shouldn’t be something...
