Columbia Cool

Today I had the awesome opportunity to attend the  the Her Campus National Intercollegiate Conference at Columbia in NYC. As a high school brand ambassador for the 2013-2014 school year, I was eligible to go to on the first day, which was reserved for Her Campus team members only. I had a blast meeting collegiettes from all over the country—seriously, they came from places as far as Washington, Texas, and Puerto Rico! The amazing seminars lead by female leaders in tech, journalism, and business were super inspiring, and there was plenty of entertainment set up by all the conference sponsors, including Intel, Luna, and Amtrak. The snacks were fab, but what really took the cake was the Chipotle catered an all-you-can-eat burrito buffet for lunch (oh mah gawwww, I luh Chipotle). Plus, don’t even get me started on the take home swag bag: earrings from Chloe + Isabel, makeup from Milani, a Bobble water bottle, a Victoria’s Secret Pink mini dog, Essie nail polish, and much, much more!

Naturally, I had to dress to impress for this kind of event, but I didn’t want to look boring. To add a little sparkle, I decided to pull out the big guns: sequins. To make it look a little bit less club-y and more office appropriate, I went for darker, professional color paired with a thick, matte scuba material skirt. I’m also absolutely in love with the minimalist grid pattern, a la Philip Lim Spring ‘13. Sort of an oldie, definitely a goodie.

Spookeyes: Colored Contacts with a Punch

I love my dark chocolate eyes, but, sometimes, I want to mix things up a bit. Have you ever imagined what you’d look like if your eyes were a different color?

SpookyEyes has got you covered! With hundreds of colors and designs to choose from, they’ve got the right contacts to fit your style. Their comfortable, hygienic lenses are a fun and safe way to shake up your look. Along with lenses, they also sell contact care kits and solution to help keep them clean and maintain their vivid color for future wears.

I had the opportunity to try out the SpookyEyes Natural Violet Circle Lenses and I have to say, I’m a huge fan. Paired with a simple gel liner cat eye, I love how they add a mystic-chic feel to my beauty look, a la Daenerys Targaryen. To contrast the darker, ominous color, I love pairing them with girly colors, like corals or pastels, and flow-y silhouettes.

Would you try them? Head on over to SpookyEyes to find your perfect pair!

Neon Trees Pop Psychology Tour in NYC on July 7

image

Last night, July 8th, the Neon Trees hit the NYC stop of their Pop Psychology tour, featuring Nightmare & the Cat, Smallpools, and, exclusively for the night, Brooklyn’s own The Stationary Set.

The Central Park SummerStage was the perfect setting for the sunny vibes that warmed up the crowd during the opening acts. The space was actually pretty intimate and there were only a little over 200 people in the audience, something I wasn’t expecting at all, considering what a huge fan base the artists have. But, the smaller audience resulted in no less energy than a larger crowd—or volume, for that matter, as proven by the earsplitting screams that filled the open air when Smallpools threw their signature killer whales into the crowd. The noise on the floor, as well as the insane thumping base and beach-y rhythm guitar sometimes made it hard to make out the lead vocals, but rest assured, all lyrics gaps were filled in by the audience who sang along to every word.

Still, the first three hours of the concert didn’t even compare to the explosion of energy that occurred when a large white sheet went up in front of the stage, blurred psychedelic lights beaming from behind. Then the curtain fell… but everything was just getting started.

Tyler Glenn’s stage presence is really a sight to see. Not only is he crazy, but he’s also crazy confident. His quirky dance moves and witty anecdotal leads into songs all played vital roles in creating what was such a fantastic show. His personality lives up to his image; he is every bit as vibrant as his wardrobe.

The entirety of the tour’s namesake album was played, as well as some oldies-but-goodies. “Animal” had everything partying like it was 2010. Fans also went crazy for the new Pop Psychology favorites, including “I Love You (But I Hate Your Friends)” and “Unavoidable”, on which Elaine Bradley put down her drumsticks and gave the mic a little spin of her own. She also added a fun touch to their cover of Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me”, where she both sang and rocked the drum set. Talk about a #GIRLBOSS. 

Before this concert, while I easily could dance to and belt out all the lyrics to “Everything Talks”, I admittedly wasn’t always such major fan of the Neon Trees. But, after seeing them live, I can say without a doubt that I’m a believer in Pop Psychology. Want to be part of the hype? The tour is going until October, so check their site to see if they’ll be at a stop near you.

What’s In My Bag: Summer Concerts with Madison

Madison is an up-and-coming It Girl whose influences in fashion, art, and pop culture are drawing more attention by the day. Neuroscience was what first brought her from Miami to New York, but after laying down some vocals in a friend’s studio one night, she was inspired. From there, she entered a whole new crazy world of music. Her EP In the Bright Light was released just last month—head on over to her Soundcloud and give it a listen for yourself.

To get the inside scoop on this icon’s ultra-cool style, we asked her about her necessities for an outdoor summer concert.

$950, Opening Ceremony

"I’d pack everything in a Fleet Ilya bag—it’s a great leather shoulder bag, the perfect size!"

$3, drugstore.com

For lip gloss? “Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color in the shade Click on My Hyperpink!”

$38, Anthropologie

Her iPhone 5 is also a must. “I keep it safe in a cute case by Anthropologie.”
