    Hi ladies and gets,

    I appologize for my recent slow movement on the site. I am working on a new business that will be designed to help writers promote their work in a much better way than anything out there right now. If you are interested in this, sign up at PenPath.com!! It’s still under development but the first version should be released…[Read more]

    I have a new article titled, ”4 Saving Goals After Graduating” – it basically covers some financial milestones college students should plan for after graduating (paying off student debt, buying a car that’s not a junker, etc.) Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll submit for review.

    • Profile picture of Brinton Parker

      Hi Miles! Sorry to get back to you so late. That article definitely sounds interesting and relevant to the readers of LTCL. Do you think that there is any way to make it funny, so that the scary topic of finances doesn’t come off as “too serious” but you still share your tips?

      Obviously it’s an important topic that needs to be discussed, so…[Read more]

    4th of july article: fun drink recipes for the 4th (all red, white and blue themed)
    How to add pizazz to natural eyes for summer (adding gold glitter)

      also, for the makeup one i can do a video and make step-by-step photos to go with the article

    • Profile picture of LTCL

      HI Linz! Sure, I think the video one would be great. The only thing I would say, is that it has to be filmed in HD (minimum 720). As far as the topic itself of gold glitter, I would rather do something that covered makeup fundamentals. Let me know your thoughts on this.

      I love the 4th of July idea! :)

    • Profile picture of Linzy Anna

      haha don’t get offended if I pitch that idea and it gets used for College Gloss then :P
      hmmmmm…….. makeup fundamentals…… look at that blush! Tips for flawless cheeks?
      also, due date for 4th of july drink article?

    • Profile picture of LTCL

      I think writing about some of the fundimentals will be great. Check structure or something like that I see is popular. I’d suggest to loon at Pinterest posts and see what makeup pins are popular and about makeup. The reiterate that and maybe improve on it. It will be a big hit!

      As for the 4th of July one, anytime this month would work. Maybe do…[Read more]

    I have two different article ideas. One would be “What to Wear on the Fourth of July” and it would focus on different outfit choices for the holiday. The other would be an article based on what are some guy’s favorite outfits that girls wear in the summer. I’m not sure what the title could be, but I would include quotes from college guys! Let…[Read more]

    • Profile picture of Alex Cruz

      Great ideas, Rachel! I like that your 4th of July idea. I’d add to explore what kind of tips you want to cover because you could cover a full outfit and you could also do just shoes or tops. The more specific the deeper you can get in the advice. As always, give them examples of brands that have the clothes you recommend. :)

      And I’m not sure…[Read more]

    We need some fun 4th of July posts! Feel free to pitch about that. ;)

  • Profile picture of Brinton Parker

    Here are some of the article ideas that I was thinking about for the next 3 weeks. Any feedback?

    1. Article about the upcoming return of ”Arrested Development” and the buzz surrounding it.

    2. Beauty article about how to stay safe during summer in terms of cosmetics, sunscreen, etc.

    3. Dream summer vacation spots around the world.

      I don’t remember the brilliant ideas I mentioned in the last time I replied to this but let see if I can recap some of it….

      The beauty article we dont really need right now bc Linzy is already doing that. Maybe you could do something related to health like staying fit in the summer using outdoors activities or something? Feel free to throw…[Read more]

    Since the relationship one is going to take a bit of time to get my sources, here is another idea I can do tomorrow or the next day:
    top sunscreens for summer
    highlight 4 or 5 different sunscreens that help with certain aspects, such as protection from freckles, easiest to use, best feel etc

    I want to write an article about how to decide whether to take a relationship long-distance. I know with summer, graduations, new jobs etc some couples may be facing the question whether to stay together or not. I want to get insight on people who have gone through this (either decided to break up or stay together) and use it in the article.

    • Profile picture of LTCL

      Excellent idea, Linzy. I like it because it’s very relevant to what’s going on this time of year. Interviewing people going through it will be great insight of what decisions they are faced with (job, money, happiness, family).
      I’m not clear on what exactly do you want the article to accomplish for the reader, though. How are they going to…[Read more]

    • Profile picture of Linzy Anna

      It is going to focus on what to consider when making the choice to make a relationship long distance or to end it (examples, length of time in relationship, seriousness, how far away, time going to be apart etc)

      I replied to this too. Did you get a chance to see it>?

    I’m hoping to write an article highlighting the most anticipated movies this summer, but I don’t want it to just be a cliche movie article. Suggestions?

    • Profile picture of LTCL

      I know. It has to stand out from the rest out there. In order to not make it chiche, I would suggest making it more niche to a specific situation and approach it from a less expected angle.
      For example; you could write about the “Top X Movies for a Date this Summer.” Something like that.
      Digging deeper into the topic is also a great way to…[Read more]

    I wanted to write an article that covers the best summer music festivals to check out around the US. Thoughts?

    • Profile picture of Alex Cruz

      Hi Miles!

      Great! Please look up the article we already did about electric dance music carnivals so yours doesn’t end up looking the same. I would say go for it though.

      Breaking these festivals down and telling the reader why they are amazing and different from one another would be of value. Also price points for those who are on a budget. Let…[Read more]

    I was thinking about writing about the resurgence of 1990’s fashion, with side-by-side photos. I’ll call it ”The Dream of the 90s is Alive in…. Fashion?” as a reference to the TV show ”Portlandia,” which addresses this issue a lot. Any feedback?

    • Profile picture of Alex Cruz

      Brinton, I like the idea! I think what sells it for me is the side by side photos. I’m not familiar with the show so I would suggest a little description might be helpful. I’ll say go for it, though. Looking forward to some nostalgic recollections of our younger years.

    What does everyone think about a video series for the Ladies Lounge where we seek out the best tutorials for the hardest things to master (involving makeup, hair, nails, etc…)? Thinking the series would be called ”Unlocked”

    • Profile picture of LTCL

      I think its brilliant!
      But if you are going to base your article off of a youtube video, it is important to do a couple of things. 1) Your article must still add value. You can do this by adding your own input or by summarizing the most important things covered in the video. You can bullet point the most helpful advice, summarize it, suggest…[Read more]

    My article idea for this week is about relationships… Is the ”overly attached girlfriend” (e.g. the meme) as prevalent as the internet would lead us to believe? I’ve already surveyed about 70 college students and have their answers. All I need is the ”ok” to start writing. :)

    • Profile picture of Alex Cruz

      Sorry for the delay in response, Brinton!

      That sounds like an interesting post! The fact that we have original data to support your conclusions will make the article and content very rich. I’m excited to see it.

      Feel free to start! Let me know if you need anything.
