Happy October, aka Pumpkin Spice season! While you may be seeing a ton of PSL (pumpkin spice latte, duh) pics showing up on your ‘gram recently, there is way more to pumpkin spice than just coffee. Modern technology has allowed us to move forward into various other industries, including alcohol and burgers. For everyone that loves pumpkin but hates being called basic, these products are for you.

It goes without saying that living in New Orleans is every food-lover’s dream. Having permanent access to some of the best food in the world definitely has its perks. It is clear, however, that nutrition is not commonly associated with the Big Easy diet. Of course we all love our beignets, po-boys, and District Donuts, but it can often seem difficult to find some yummy grub that won’t come with excess calories and guilt. If, like me, delicious food and healthy ingredients are equally important to you, these under-the-radar spots will be right up your alley!  1. Superfood Bar With options ranging from fresh juices and smoothies, to wraps, salads, and tacos, you could say Superfood Bar has it all...

Best Sandwich Places Near Campus

As I was eating yet another turkey-swiss-tomato-spinach-pesto mayo sandwich at Bruff, I realized just how bad I wished I could be eating a delicious sandwich somewhere else. Fortunately, we live in a city filled with great food, and quite a few sandwich places near by. Brunch has become my new favorite meal, and lately when I wake up at 2 P.M. on the weekends I find myself craving a yummy sandwich rather than pancakes or waffles. Why? Sandwiches have everything you want in a meal and more. They’re filling, Insta-worthy, and always come with a side. Here are a few of my favorite inexpensive sandwiches that are definitely better than Bruff: READ MORE

Trendy and Functional Backpacks for Fashionistas

By Caroline Joseph
October 5, 2014 - 3:49pm

Looking trendy is a day-to-day concern for many college students, but can sometimes be a struggle. When we feel like we look fashionable, we usually feel better about ourselves. However, between the jam-packed days, late nights studying (or partying), and lack of sleep, it is easy to neglect taking the time to make this effort while getting dressed for classes. One thing that is always constant with the school day is how we carry our books. Oversized purses can seriously hurt your shoulder, so it’s healthier to carry a backpack. A cute backpack can ensure that your outfit is stylishly accessorized, while allowing you to stay comfortable and organized! READ MORE

By the time the calendar strikes October 1st, I have one thing and one thing only on my mind- Halloween. Halloween in New Orleans is an incredible time filled with festivals and decorations galore. Going to Tulane, we’re so lucky to get to celebrate the holiday in such a spirited city. If you’re anything like me, the ever-daunting task of figuring out the perfect Halloween costume is also on your mind at every mention of the holiday. With so many opportunities to be festive, there’s tons of opportunities to spend tons of money, and on a college-kid budget sometimes that’s just not possible. Here are a few ideas to integrate your everyday wardrobe into classic Halloween costumes- without breaking your bank! The Black Legging = Endless Possibilities...

Travel Guide: 5 Things I Learned from being Phone-less Abroad

By Isabella Jaye
October 4, 2014 - 4:29pm

Before this summer, I couldn’t think of the last time I spent more than a couple waking minutes without looking at my phone. We use our phones for everything—from checking the time during a boring class to sending embarrassing snaps to our friends to playing (read: losing, in my case) 2048 over and over again. Our phones are almost like the grown-up version of that blanket or stuffed animal we clung to when we were kids—entertaining us when we’re bored and giving us something to fidget with when we’re nervous or feel awkward.
