What to Wear to a College Party

What to Wear to a College Party

Hey cupcakes! I haven't done a fashion post in quite some time! I decided to do a simple post about parties - college parties that is! Now these outfit ideas can be for frat parties, work parties, hall parties in your dorm and pretty much any fancy occasion you might encounter in college. Let's get started!

Casual party - For a casual party, don't try to overdress! Wear some comfy jeans, a semi-dressy top, and your favorite kicks. It's casual for a reason so feel free to get comfortable! :)

Formal event - At formal events, make sure to look great but not sleazy. Body con dresses are super cute but make sure it isn't too short! You don't want to look trashy at a formal event! This same rule applies to all other dresses too! <3

Semi-formal - If you aren't sure how formal an event is going to be, go for the semi-formal look! Skater skirts, a cute blouse, and an oversized cardigan is my go to outfit for a semi-formal event :)

10 Annoying Things Girls Do...

Hey cupcakes! Last month I did a post called "10 Annoying Things Guys Do..." (read it here!) I got a few requests to do a version of this for girls (just to be fair) so here it is! Again, this is totally just for fun so no need to be offended girls ;) Enjoy!

1. Gossiping - I hate when girls gossip! It is super duper annoying and really not cool at all!

2. Never looking up from their phones - I guess boys do this too, but I notice more girls constantly looking at their phones.... Enjoy life already!
I hope you fall into a fountain!
3. Saying "like" in every sentence - Like some people like to say "like" like all the time, and it's like super annoying :P

4. Wearing short skirts and crop tops in the winter - Maybe this is just a personal thing, but it annoys the crap out of me when girls wear like no clothes during the winter months.... You can totally look cute without taking ur clothes off!

5. See through leggings - Some girls wear leggings that show EVERYTHING which is annoying because I don't want to see that #gross

6. Dieting - If you really want to diet, go for it, but I don't want to hear about it every 5 seconds!


7. Talking about guys 24/7 - I know that only certain girls do this, but it is sooo annoying when they do! There are a lot cooler things in life than boys (no offense ;) )

8. Uploading a million and three selfies on social media - We get it, you are at this super hip party and are totally cool....

9. Pretending to be stupid for a guy - Girl please, show your brains! Being smart is cool! :)

10. Attention seeking - Nothing annoys me more than when girls try to attract attention all the time... So not ok!


I hope you enjoyed this silly and random post! Don't forget to comment and follow me! :D <3

Review: NEW Tropicana Farmstand Strawberry Banana Juice

Hey cupcakes! I have been seeing a lot of commercials for a new juice line from Tropicana (Tropicana Farmstand), so I decided to try and review one for all of you! :) Enjoy!

Brand: Tropicana Farmstand Juice
Flavor: Strawberry Banana
Price: $1.79
What is advertised: 1 serving of fruit and 1 serving of vegetables in one bottle

What I think:
Overall, I thought this was a great juice! The price was actually cheaper than the soda at the CVS I bought it in (the Cokes were $1.89) which is awesome since you get 1 serving of fruit and 1 serving of vegetables in it! The bottle was super super super cute which was an added bonus. It was like the larger Tropicana Orange Juice bottles but in miniature form!!
The orange juice bottles!
The flavor just tasted like strawberry banana juice even though there are many different juice blends included. The only really big downside was the amount of sugar. While it is still probably less than soda (and might be natural sugars), I feel like you couldn't really have these all the time because it would be bad for your teeth. BUT, I totally recommend this juice as a once in awhile treat :) I will definitely be purchasing this again!


What is your favorite juice? Comment below and don't forget to follow! :D

12 Tips for Staying Fit in College

Hey everyone! As many of you may know, college is known for causing people to gain weight (not the dreaded Freshmen 15!!!!)... Today, I wanted to do a post on my tips and tricks to staying healthy/fit while away at college! Enjoy! :) <3

1. Drink lots of water - Water helps with lots of things: preventing illness, staying hydrated, clearing skin, etc. I drink a TON of water everyday and haven't gotten sick yet this year (knock on wood)... I tell you, the water really helps!

2. Eat healthy - Even though you have unlimited access to food in the dining hall, don't pig out! Make sure you eat enough friuts and vegetables and have lots of healthy snacks in your dorm room during study breaks (don't just binge on potato chips please!).

3. Take the stairs! - If you are on one of the higher floors of your dorm (like me!), take the stairs every once in awhile instead of the elevator! This really gets your heart racing for a quick and easy way to stay fit :)

4. Power walk to class - Instead of taking your sweet old time getting to class, try to power walk to get your heart racing!

5. Walk around campus  - Instead of going directly to your dorm after class, explore your campus! You are going to be there for at least four years so find some great study spots, fun locations, etc. while getting in some steps!

6. Find friends to go to the gym - Going to the gym can be daunting if you are going alone, so find some friends that can go together! This will also help with motivation as you try to stay fit :)

7. Take advantage of free classes - College campuses always have free classes of some sort whether it be yoga, Zumba, etc. Try something new and get your heart racing!

8. Find a local gym, dance studio, etc. - There are always local businesses that non-college students use to stay fit! Check out some of the options, and you might find something totally awesome and new!

9. Fun fact: alcohol is a lot of extra calories - If you party all day every day, you are going to gain weight. Just saying...

10. Join an intramural sports team or student org - Check out the student clubs on campus and join in on intramurals or club sports to stay fit! This is also a great place to make new friends and you might find some really cool options (like a Quidditch team!)! <3

11. Get plenty of sleep - Staying fit also depends on your mental health so really try to get at least 7 or 8 hours of sleep! Trust me, you won't be motivated to stay fit if you are tired all the time!

12. Don't binge eat when you are stressed - Control yourself :P Find something better to do when you are stressed <3

Story Time: I Was Hit on By a College Professor?!?!

Hey cupcakes! Happy Valentine's Day! :D For the holiday, I wanted to do a quick story time post which is a little different for The Chic Cupcake... But hey, why not? :P Let's get started!

So as many of you know, I am currently in my second semester of my freshman year in college. This story takes place last semester when I had to take an English class. Now, I personally don't really enjoy English because I am more of a math and history kind of person. So, I wasn't too excited about this class that happened three times a week at 9 AM. But, I had to take it.

The first day of class went fine. The class was only about 20 or so students, and my professor was this animated dude who liked to sing when he taught. Again, I don't like English that much, and my professor told us he didn't give out As, so I already assumed I wouldn't enjoy this class very much.

The third week of class he required us all to attend his office hours so that he could get to know us. I assigned a time and went to his office just like he asked and everything was fine until I got up to leave. I was almost to the door when he asked me this question:

"Do you always wear that headband?"
My reaction
This might not seem very odd to most people, but I wear the same headband often because it keeps my hair out of my face in class. BUT, it struck me as quite odd because he had only been teaching me for about 6 or 7 classes. Why was he looking at what my headband looked liked? I shrugged it off and kept going to class.

During Thanksgiving break, I went shopping to stock up on food, etc. and bought some new headbands. The first day back of school (Monday = 9 AM English), I decided to try out one of my new headbands. I got to class a bit early so waited outside the door looking on Facebook. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see my professor coming down the hall and when he got near me (like literally after 3 seconds), he said,

"Is that a new headband?"

Um, since when does a married 40 something-year-old man care about what I wear in my hair? I was a tad creeped out.

For the remaining classes of the semester, he never commented on my headbands again, but commented on the logos of my t-shirts a couple of times.

"What does that say?"

Um, why do you care? He was real creepy.

But I got an A in the class :) (and yes I worked my butt off to get it!)

And he got fired (no I never complained or anything, the college just didn't sign him back on for the next semester because I guess they didn't think he was a good teacher).

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed my brief story time post! :P

My Experience: Grease LIVE!

Hey cupcakes! As many of you gals may know, FOX recently performed a Live version of the musical Grease! I was super duper excited to watch it (since Grease is one of my fav musicals!), so I thought I would let you know my thoughts after watching the whole thing... Let's get started!


What I Liked About the Show

Overall, I thought the show was great! It wasn't just another remake of the movie everyone knows and loves, and I thought it was the perfect mixture between the actual musical script and the movie. I also really enjoyed the new unique things they added in :) The choreography was so stunning, and the costume changes were beyond perfect (they even had magnetic costumes for costume changes that lasted a few second - AMAZING!)! Some of my favorite characters included:

1. Patty (played by Elle Lemore)

2. Blanche (played by Haneefah Wood) - so hilarious omg

3. Marty (played by Keke Palmer)

These were probably my top three characters, but ALL of the actors/actresses were actually amazing! I really enjoyed how they picked less mainstream people who are still super talented! I also loved how they added old Frenchy and new Frenchy into the same scene... The feels! <3

Last but not least, my favorite scene by far was Greased Lightning! ;)

Honestly, if you haven't watched Grease Live yet, I really recommend it!

*Watch it here: LINK*

What I Didn't Like About the Show

Being a live show, they had a few mistakes (like the sound issue during the hand jive).. But that makes it more like a stage show, so it personally didn't bother me :D Some of the scenes were cheesy (like the race scene which looked so hilariously fake), but Grease is kinda supposed to be a cheesy musical. I loved it all! :P

Final Thoughts

If you haven't already, GO WATCH GREASE LIVE! It blew Sound of Music: Live and Peter Pan: Live out of the water by a tonnnn! Grease is totally the word! <3

How to Style Heart Prints

How to Style a Heart Print

Hey cupcakes! Continuing with the season, I wanted to make a fashion collage devoted to the adorable heart prints! I feel like heart prints are always in style, and I personally love them :) Here are three difference ways to style them:

1. If you only have an accessory with a heart print on it (such as a scarf, purse, etc.), wear a pretty neutral/classic outfit so that the hearts really stand out! :) I suggest a gray v-neck tee, your favorite pair of jeans, and some comfy booties!

2. If you have a top with hearts on it (such as a sweater, jacket, blouse, etc.), all you have to do is put on some dark denim jeans (or black pants) and some of your cutest flats! I personally love how this sweater isn't the traditional red or pink color but is still really festive and chic <3

3. If you have a heart print dress (which are so trendy btws!), go all out with the season and wear some red heels! Perfect for any Valentine's Day date! :D

Places to Go on a Girl's Night Out!

Hey cupcakes! Valentine's Day is almost here, but that doesn't mean you have to eat ice cream in bed while watching Netflix just because you don't have a significant other. With all of your single friends, have a girl's night out! Make some amazing memories! Here are my top choices for places to go on a G.N.O:

1. Hit up your favorite restaurant - While it might be difficult to get a reservation (due to all of the people going out to dinner), it is totally worth it for a fun night with some great food!

2. Go see a really cheesy movie - Laugh the whole time and enjoy some delicious popcorn! ;)

3. Go clubbing or bar hopping - If you are old enough, go out dancing or to some bars! Don't let anyone in your group even talk to any guys because this is girls ONLY! :D Have a blast!

4. Have a girl's night in! - Have a spa night while watching your favorite classic films and paint nails, do hair, etc.

5. Go to the mall - Who says you can't splurge when you're with your friends? ;)

6. Have a cupcake competition - Have everyone bake cupcakes together and then try to decorate them the best! The winner gets to choose the movie after! <3

7. Do some crafts - They can be heart themed but totally don't have to be! Do something creative!

8. Get super dressed up - Then, do any of the things listed above (even if you stay in!)... Dressing up will make you feel great for the holiday :)

Remember: YOU DON'T NEED A MAN ON VALENTINE'S DAY TO HAVE FUN! <3

5 Unique Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day

Hey cupcakes! Valentine's Day is coming around the corner which means some of us will need to purchase gifts for our significant others! :D This year, I decided to make a gender neutral list of 5 unique things that you can give your partner for Valentine's Day.... Enjoy!

1. Photo book - Collage.com has some really cute photobook options (link here) which allow you to create a one of a kind memory book for your boyfriend or girlfriend. I personally would love this gift (being in a long distance relationship) becuase whenever you miss your significant other you can just look at the book they made for you! So thoughtful <3

2. Reasons I love you book - Making a book of all of the reasons you love your partner is so special and cute! You can make your own book using a composition notebook, or you can purchase some on Amazon!

Why I Love You Journal: link
What I Love About You Journal: link
3. Mix of their favorite foods - Being with someone who doesn't really like chocolate, buying your partner a whole bunch of their favorite candies, snacks, drinks, or food is the perfect substitute for a box of chocolates in the shape of a heart (plus it is more meaningful!)

4. A stuffed animal of their fav animal - Instead of buying the basic teddy bear holding a heart, find them a stuffed animal of their favorite animal, character, etc. This will be way more thoughtful than a random teddy bear!!!! <3
I love otters so this would be perfect for me! ;)
5. A love letter (or Open When letters) - Love letters are amazing! If you are in a long distance relationship (or not!), writing them a love letter, or a whole bunch of Open when letters, is such a meaningful gift! It is super sweet, and they will love it! :D
