Top 5 Things You Should Just Forget About

1- Getting a decent parking spot on any college campus. In related news, don’t even try to park illegally…fifty bucks says there is a parking services agent hiding in the bushes. 

2- Wearing your hair down in this heat. Don’t lie girl, you know that ‘do is gonna be in a topknot before you even make it to the subway.

3- Waking up early to work out on the weekend. I’ve told myself this was going to happen, oh, a few THOUSAND times in my life…and I’ve never done it once.

4- Acting funny, witty, smooth, or refined when needed. Sorry player, this is going to be the EXACT moment you knock over your glass and/or get a piece of basil stuck in your teeth.

5- Choosing the “right” line in security. It’s always a gamble…and I inevitably get stuck behind the newb who forgets to take out his laptop…way to hold up the entire.freaking.line. dude…

Top 5 Styles I No Longer Sport

1- Flip flops. Unless I’m at the beach, it’s highly unlikely you will catch me with these on my feet. My grandmother once told me they were “sloppy and noisy” and only excusable on teenagers…years later, I have to say I agree.

2- Butterfly sleeves. They look stunning on the hanger…and atrocious on the bod. Trust me. 

3- Denim jackers. I know they’re back and I know they’re all over the runway…but I would bet my life savings that a black or white blazer would make any outfit look better.

4- Tracksuits. This style is almost as 2003 as Paris Hilton.

5- Dresses with a banded bottom. That was a fun/brief moment in time wasn’t it? Too bad Jersey Shore had to come and ruin it for us all.

Top 5 Items Worth The Save

1- Hand soap. Buy a delightful little dispenser and then stock up on the huge dollar store refills (to be stored out of sight, of course).

2- Decorative bowls/glass. These things are often priced outrageously…and you can typically find beautiful pieces at any thrift store for mere pennies.

3- Halloween costumes. The pre-packaged options are both ridiculously expensive and ridiculously cheap! Get creative and have a quality, original, and tasteful get-up!

4- Lipstick. While I also adore department store brands, the drug store stuff works just fine!

5- Summer sandals. These things are going to get beat up, washed up, and danced over by the time the the season is over…save your money so you don’t stress about it until fall!
