The Best Thrifts Stores in São Paulo For You To Visit

Nowadays, thrift stores are considered vintage, have several cool clothing options and the price is great. Here in São Paulo, we have an extensive amount of thrift stores, from the most expensive to the cheapest, for all types and tastes. Here are some of the coolest ones we've come across.

#GirlPower: Get To Know The Women Who Are Changing The Fashion World

The International Women's Day, March 8th, is coming, and obviously, as women, we have gained a much more active voice in the world of fashion, which for a long time had to follow what society said was a trend. The curious thing is that a lot of these influencers were men, but with the invention of the savior of our generation, the internet and the social media, they have given voice and opportunity of expression to many women, who are strong, independent and full of style. So, we have separated

Don’t Wait Until You Hit a Wall To Wake Up

It’s that time of year, which is what brought this topic to my mind.  It is the end of Spring Semester, and that means it is finals times. By this time, we know where we are in our classes grades-wise, and it makes us question what we’ve been doing the whole semester.  Unfortunately, if we’re failing a class horribly, and have waited until the last two weeks to ask the Professor what we can do to improve our grad, we already hit that wall without even knowing it. But this saying doesn't only rel

If You Hate It, Quit It

We always hear that you shouldn't quit things, and to stick it out if you can. But, some things you just need to give up! I am here to tell you it's ok to quit something that doesn't necessarily bring joy to your life because the most important thing is you and your well-being. Romantic Relationships: It doesn't matter if you two have been together for two years or two months, if the relationship isn't working, let it go! There is no reason to stay in a relationship if it's not making you happy

Take Your Taxes Off Our Tampons

Hey, Ladies I know a lot of you have already seen it, but just in case you haven't, Amber Rose has a PSA Commercial. This time she is not talking about owning the phrase "slut" or about different sexualities on the LGBTQ Spectrum. This time she is taking on the topic every woman battles with every month, the good ole Crimson Wave. This new PSA was news to me, and I feel like I need to share this with any other woman that doesn't know about it. When first watching the commercial, you think it wa

Does The Internet Have Boundaries?

Hey ladies! Recently I was listening to a podcast, and during the conversation between the two women, something caught my attention. While one of the women were talking about them becoming a new mother and how some people were upset about her choice to breastfeed in public. She was ok with people judging that because everyone has their different views and opinions. But, she then stated something along the lines that an individual commented on her new baby's appearance in a negative and repulsive

Why Are We Women Constantly Feeling Guilty?

I noticed this incredible topic being brought up in an article I recently read from the Huffington Post, and it's nothing but accurate. Women are constantly feeling guilty about the choices that they make.  As women, whether some believe it or not, we do deal with a lot more in life. We make the final decisions in dilemmas like whether to end a pregnancy (because it's our bodies after all), to say yes to a proposal, or even what our family is going to eat for breakfast, even though there are oth

Aim For Your Nontraditional Goals

Hey Ladies, I am here to give you my opinion on Nontraditional Goal.  All of our lives, we Women have seen girls/women in TV shows or books, all reach their "Ultimate Goal." And that goal is always something like getting married to some handsome guy and having 2.5 perfect kids in a house with a white picket fence. That's great for some people, but the media need to stop showing us Women what they think we all dream of and one day hope for as a "Happy Ending." There are women who ultimate goal is

Self-Sabotage

Hey Ladies, I am going to touch on a topic that's very near and dear to me, and probably to you, your friends, sisters, and maybe even your mothers. I am going to try my best to speak on the issue of Self-Sabotaging. I always felt like I did this and even my mom has brought this to my attention many times. I always thought she was joking until this summer. I was watching one of my guilty pleasure TV shows, and this girl kept ruining friendships and relationships, and close to the end of the show

Clothes Don"t Determine The Kind of Guy He Is

Recently the subject of how guys dressed has been brought up in many different conversations with friends and acquaintances because I've been told and judged for crushing on guys that look "homeless." I'm also starting to feel like the government is listening to what we are saying because I started seeing this meme around the same time of these conversations(that I cannot do the life of me find!) that said something along the line that men that dress like this: Is not "boyfriend material".

Black Panther: The Soundtrack

So, we all know the best movie of 2018, Black Freaking Panther, last Friday and the hype is still at an all-time high. The movie was nothing short of AMAZING but was any of you curious about the music in the background of some of those scenes. Well, the soundtrack was curated by Kendrick and Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith and is currently Number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. On this album, you will experience a variety of sounds, genres, and artists you would have never thought sounded so great toge

You Have to Move to Find Yourself

As a soon to be college graduate, I have been thinking a lot about what my plans are after college, and most importantly where my life will start its new chapter. Most people claim that they are moving to a new place rather than going back to their hometown because they are sick of being there. I think to be able to move you have to want more than just to leave your hometown because you're bored of it, you have to be able to want to go through the good and bad to learn more about yourself.

There's No Need To Compare and Contrast

With my impending graduation in May, most of time and thoughts are about graduation and post-graduation plans. I have had ideas about what I might want to do, and you might not know what your next step is either, but one thing we're not going to do is compare ourselves to other. I believe that everyone, no matter how much they claim they don't or how hard they try not to, always end comparing themselves to others even if it's about something as little as manicures. One comparison that can really

You Are Not Anyone’s DUFF

As a woman who loves inspirational quotes, or just quotes that give you a new perspective on life, I have always paid close attention to song lyrics and monologues from plays/movies, to find hidden gems. Most of the time I write them down in a notebook or put them on my wall to refer to when I go through different situations. Well, I had to find out the hard way that every seemingly good quote is not meant to be used as a reference when you're going through real life situations. The summer befo

8 Ways Bridget Jones Is Like A College Student

When most of us were still in elementary school, a little film called “Bridget Jones’s Diary” stole the hearts of moviegoers everywhere. The film tells the story of a 30-something British gal named Bridget (played by pre-wax figure Renée Kathleen Zellweger) who lives her life like it’s perpetually the weekend of her 21st birthday.

Nabra Hassanen is Not Being Protected: Why I'm Upset Her Death Isn't Being Investigated as a Hate Crime

The opinions expressed in this article are the author's own and do not reflect the views of Her Campus. After I initially learned of the murder of Nabra Hassanen via social media, I took it upon myself to search through the few articles and news reports about the event.

Floridian in the Fort

Growing up in Tampa, Florida, it never crossed my mind that I would spend my college years in Texas.  I had actually never even been to Texas until I was a junior in high school. I mean, I live where you vacation! Why would I ever want to leave that? But, when I stepped on the campus of TCU for the first time, I knew it was for me. The sense of community and adventure is what drew me to this great school.  Tampa and Fort Worth do have many similarities, but the differences are just as great. T

The Back to School Plague

The time has come where only a few weeks of school have passed, but every time the alarm goes off, your head starts to pound with it. You pretty much feel like you’re dying. The back to school plague is something that almost all college students are familiar with.  Waiting in line at the health center, living off of Emergen-C and Advil, and taking a Nyquill before bed are all too familiar. But, for any college student, getting sick for the first time without having someone to care for you migh

Alcoholism and Acceptability

Many students are currently finishing off assignments and preparing for exams. The last few weeks have been filled with late nights and library bins filled with stacks of empty coffee cups. After all the St. Patricks Day celebrations, all that coffee was swapped with another substance for many of these students, one that is very much associated with being Irish.
