All About Highlighters

puppies, kittens, & opinions

The best highlighters are the ones that blend easily, accentuate key features, and don’t emphasize texture on your face. I have tried several highlighters from low end to high end and these are the ones I consider to be the best I have tried!

The Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder is by far one of the best highlighters I’ve tried. The highlighter costs $44, but blends effortlessly and doesn’t show off any of my texture. I love how natural and fresh it looks as well!

image-3Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors are also some of my favorite highlighters. I particularly like the shades Moonstone and Champagne Pop the most! They are so smooth and look beautiful on the skin. These highlighters cost $38.


One of my holy grail products is Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator (I specifically use the shade Charming Pink). I would buy this over and over…

In defense of being ‘extra’

Courtney at UofL

The top definition at defines being extra as:

“over the top

excessive, dramatic behavior

way too much”

While the consensus in definitions on Urban Dictionary seems to define being extra as something negative, in actuality we should all strive to be extra sometimes. To me, being extra just means approaching average things with above-average enthusiasm.

Days that would just end up being rather forgettable and ordinary can turn into cherished memories. By being extra, you are taking the excitement of your life into your own hands.

I spent this past summer interning at Walt Disney World, and there is certainly no better place to be extra than that! Disney World is a place where adults can walk around in tiaras and mouse ears and no one bats an eye.

Now, I have vacationed at Disney World over a dozen times and worked there a cumulative of 7 months over…

Serial Wiper Erector


Every person procures their thrills in peculiar ways.  How do you get yours?  For example, some people prefer roller coasters while others favor an eyebrow-raising petty theft.  It is possible to achieve thrills from the occasional social participation and even doing a good deed.  I mean, have you ever honked for the car that has “HONK AWAY BREAST CANCER!” written on it in soap and suddenly felt exhilarated?  Have you ever paid for the meal of the person behind you in a drive-thru and felt a rush of euphoria?  Well, that was the feeling I sought today.

media1 Get your jollies your way.

After my morning cup of coffee, my husband and I proceeded with our daily routine by jumping in the car to leave for the gym.  Before leaving the driveway, my husband instinctively left the driver seat to put up the wiper blades on our other car.  I wanted to…

Student Film

Julia's Judgments

This semester for our Digital Journalism class we were tasked with making videos about certain topics. We were part of the group called “What to Watch” so we discussed entertainment topics such as “Halloween Movies” and “People’s Opinion about the Ending of Friends”. This class gave us the opportunity to develop skills such as interviewing people and editing the footage together so it tells an interesting story. For our last topic we chose to discuss student film.

As someone who has been involved in student film for over a year I can say that I have so much respect for anyone who takes up the challenge to being involved in this process. It is a very long and difficult process, but if you push yourself you have the opportunity to create something amazing. Not to mention that while the process is difficult it can also be incredibly fun. If…

A Little Piece of Thai Land in Jeffersonville Indiana


After adventuring to many local restaurants in the Louisville area the food girls decided to take their final trip across the bridge to Jeffersonville Indiana. After trying diner style burgers, an Italian feast that made one group member feel right at home, and a pizza place that took the size of one slice to a whole other level we stumbled across authentic Thai food. Located at 1411 East 10th Street in Jeffersonville Indiana, Mai’s Thai was the ultimate Thai experience.

Mai’s Thai was created and is still run today by Mai Kungkran-Myers herself. Mai grew up in Bangkok Thailand where she learned her traditional Thai cooking from her father. When Mai became a young adult, she met her husband who was an American soldier at the time and followed him back to the United States. Louisville shortly became her new home. When she first arrived, she struggled keeping jobs…

UofL’s LGBT Center Celebrates a Decade of Inclusion!

According to Aspen

The University of Louisville’s very own LGBT Center is celebrating ten years of success on campus. There has been a great deal of growth and change that has occurred in the last decade because of the center’s work with the LGBT community.

Many thoughts come to mind when thinking of the center’s prominence in the university community. Students use words such as family, acceptance, and hope to describe their experiences here.

But where did the LGBT center get its start?

The center started as a repurposed closet in 2007 and has since been relocated to The Intersection in the Red Barn where it still resides. It was created as a branch of the Office of Diversity and International Affairs in response to a series of homophobic propaganda that occurred on campus in 2004.

Since its humble start, the LGBT Center has contributed to the growth and success of the university…
