Spring is here and it's time to bust out your inner "fashionista". Do you live and breathe fashion? Is your face is always buried in the latest issue of vogue or other fashion magazines? Are you thirsty for a life-time supply of "red-bottoms"? Do you have your pulse on every single trend before the season even hits?

I live in Barnes and Noble. As a lifetime bookworm, I find solace in my second home that houses thousands of books begging to be cracked open, whether it be travel guides, fiction, or how-to books for everyday life. Although I love club B&N, there is one thing that peeves me about this place. Aside from the fact that the Starbucks Cafe/unofficial library is inexplicably packed at all times of day, I can't ignore the nagging feeling I get every time I lock eyes with the African American Interests section.

M.I.A. is great not only because her beats are hot, but she (at times superficially) infuses seemingly meaningless lyrics with political messages primarily about the 3rd world. She also has the looks and the rap swag to boot. In celebration of this amazingness that is M.I.A., I have listed my personal top 5 M.I.A. songs. Enjoy!

There's been a growing trend lately that seeks to put an end to the classic image of the model: The tall, rail thin, size zero woman who does not represent the majority of women. While I'm on board with the movement and do think that the fashion industry upholds a very rare and impossible to achieve standard of beauty, I also HATE when people counter this message by saying "Real women have curves." This phrase only serves to put others down while lifting up a certain demographic. It makes it seem as though women who aren't a size zero should be THE standard, not included in it.
