  • Fashion Maven: Show off your shades

    Huge, out-of-this world, colorful sunglasses are a hit this spring and while they may look great in magazines, I’ll bet many of you are having qualms about actually pulling off this look.
    Fashion is about making a statement and making a statement can mean plucking up a lot of courage, but also making sure the trend looks good on you.
    Since this trend is focusing on how large sunglasses are, we’ve got to make sure that the color of the shades compliments your skin tone.
    Hold the glasses up to your face to see if their color makes you look very pale or pasty. Vibrant, neon colors tend to have this effect more than neutral colors, so if you want more toned-down shades, go for neutral colors. That means black, white, beige or navy.

  • Getting a 'F' in economics

    The end of the school year is just over a month away and most students are already busy making plans for the summer.  A visit to the grandparents in Montana.  Some time on the California beach with friends.  Whitewater rafting down the Colorado River.  Perhaps a trip out to Europe to see if the Tower of Pisa is still standing?
    But for graduating seniors, the horizon beckons a new sunrise, a new horizon, a new challenge.
    College,right?
    Well, not exactly.  After the acceptance letters and college selections, the real challenge is that crinkly green stuff that colleges demand in return for an education.  What’s that called again?
