Certainly you have seen them practicing on the McClure Stage sometime this year; as you sluggishly walk back home from a long day on campus and are quickly awakened by the guitar and accordion melodies and the rapid tapping of their boot heels on the pavement. This is the Grupo Folklorico de UCLA. The group will be hosting their 7th annual spring showcase, "Fiesta Mexicana!", a celebration of the rich and diverse culture of Mexico, this Sunday, May 25th. It is free and open to the public and will take place in Royce Hall from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Sure to be full of great dancing and music, it will be a night you won't want to miss! Their yearlong dedication will certainly payoff. Watch  a behind the scenes look of their 2012 showcase down below!...

Neck candy. This not-so-new trend has sustained its popularity for quite some time now. It is a great trend all year long but personally, I find it the best to wear during summer. Layering necklaces adds that extra touch to an outfit without the need of adding an additional layer of clothing (... it's hot out, let's not wear more than we have too. Am I right??). Depending on the style of necklaces you decide to layer, you can achieve a look that will compliment your outfit every time! I love these combos for a casual yet chic feel...   READ MORE
