Gainesvillista: Perfect lips for summer

Summer is the time of the year where I feel like I can be the most creative when it comes to my lips; picking bold pinks and oranges seem less of a daunting idea for some reason. I tend to lean towards neutral pink-toned lips and bolder eyes, which I still do most of the time. Lately however, I am loving doing the exact opposite; neutral eyes and a bold lip. 

Bleacher Creatures: No-Hitters

Bleacher Creatures: The makeup of a no-hitter

Many great feats can be achieved in the sports world, but perhaps the most intriguing is baseball’s no-hitter. In the long history of Major League Baseball there have been 285 no-hitters. As of July 11, 2014, there have been three no-hitters in the 2014 season. The pitchers responsible were Josh Beckett, Clayton Kershaw and Tim Lincecum. 


Gainesvillista: Fashion for a cause

Fashion is sometimes ridiculed for being superficial and selfish, as it is “just for looks”. I strongly believe that fashion encompasses much more than these stereotypical notions. Fashion can help people in more ways than one; besides boosting confidence and making people feel special, the Fashion Industry Association (FIA) of Tampa is showing people that fashion can truly make a difference in thousands of lives. 


Gainesvillista: Summer trends

Summer is here, which means one thing: a new wardrobe! When I think of a summer wardrobe, I think of short denim shorts, tank tops and of course, flip flops. However, this image of “summer style” has been shelved this season.


The Wandering Gator: Goodbye to Florence

Florence gave me more in a mere six weeks than college has given me as a whole in two years. I came into college with no sense of direction. To be honest, my only purpose for majoring in engineering was pleasing my family. For the past few years, I have been desperately searching for myself to no avail. I did not feel the need to do well in my classes, I spread myself too thin amongst clubs in an attempt to find someplace I belonged, and I just was not happy.

The Wandering Gator: The Italian Facebook

Have you ever considered the effect social media has on you? Can you go one day without checking your Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter accounts? Almost everyone I know, including myself, has one of these applications on their smartphones. We want people to know all about our lives (the good, filtered parts of course) and "like" it.

Gainesvillista: Summer Time Beauty Tips

Summer is here and the heat is to the point of melting when you step outside. Florida heat makes wearing makeup one of the most uncomfortable things in the world. These are some of my “go to” tips and tricks for wearing make up in the summer- hopefully without melting. 


The Wandering Gator: Simplicity is key

Italy is a wonderful teacher, probably the best teacher around if you’re in the business of learning how to appreciate life. The secret? That’s simple, it's simplicity! Simplicity can translate into enjoying the small, seemingly insignificant aspects of life.
