That’s a Wrap
April 15, 2014-
Headbands are always in style, one way or another, be it prim and proper Blair Waldorf style, or Coachella-inspired with a hippie vibe. The latter is what we’re craving right now, and we’ve spotted them all over campus. These are our top picks for getting that effortless boho vibe:
Dreaming of Daisies

Need a quick bite? Head on over to Mickey’s Sliders (or search out their food truck), a dining experience built entirely around sliders (a.k.a mini sandwiches). For those of you thinking of mass produced White Castle sliders, don’t. Mickey’s Sliders uses fresh ingredients and inventive flavor combos to bring you delicious sliders like the Chicken Wing Royal, chicken marinated in homemade wing sauce and topped with ranch blue cheese slaw, and the Lonestar, BBQ pulled pork topped with crispy onion rings. We also highly recommend the parmesan fries with the black pepper truffle dipping sauce to nosh on the side—they’re to die for.
Store Spotlight: Prefontaine
March 19, 2014-
Stumbling into Prefontaine among the antique shops in downtown Waco, we were taken aback by the high quality (and designer) clothing in store. Located inside the historic Hamilton House on Austin Ave. this store combines charm and simplicity to make your shopping experience comparable to that of a specialty boutique on South Congress Ave. in Austin. Designers like Vince, Joie, Rebecca Taylor, and Diane von Furstenberg fill the store, accompanied by designer shoes and jewelry on neighboring tables, If you can’t make it into the store, or can’t find something in your size, have no fear! The can order straight from their vendors to ensure you get your hands on every incredible piece you covet.
Found: Your Perfect Tee
March 12, 2014-
There is one thing that’s hot in Lubbock right now, but unfortunately, it is not the weather. It’s Piko! Purveyor of extremely soft, want-to-wear-all-the-time tees, Piko is all but taking over Lubbock. These tops range from $30-$50 depending on the style, but they’re more than worth the price, because you will live in them! Get them at local boutique TC Elli’s.

The Sweet Addiction
February 14, 2014-
At SMU, nothing gets a house of girls moving faster than, “Sprinkles run! Who wants to go?” Most students are less than 10 minutes from The Plaza at Preston Center, home to three glorious Sprinkles creations: Sprinkles Cupcakes, the Sprinkles Ice Cream Shop and one of Dallas’ first Cupcake ATM’s (read: 24-hour cupcake access). Even though Sprinkles cupcakes don’t have a spot in our daily diets, it’s a great resource during finals week…or any test week for that matter!
