PINK Tailgate Tour Takes Bama

I can't believe that it has been almost a WEEK since the PINK Tailgate Tour visited us here at Bama. I had such an amazing time getting to see all of you angelwings at the tailgate.



And since we had so much fun last week... we have decided to continue celebrating the Crimson Tide with a tailgate viewing party for this weekend's Alabama vs. Mizzou game! Come hangout with us on Saturday at the Presidential Living Community to watch the game and snag some great freebies.

I hope everyone had a fun and restful fall break!!!

We LOVE YogaBliss!

Just wanted to say one thing...

All you yoga-angels who came to YogaBliss to get your 'omm' on with us are AMAZING. I'm still feeling the burn from Sunday.


We had so much fun meeting with all of you and giving you some sweet freebies! What did you think of the new yoga bra?? I'm. In. Looooove.



But moving on... HAPPY TUESDAY Love Bugs!

Thought of the Day:

Be thankful for everyone in your life... especially your best friends. You know, the one who lets you borrow her shoes, the one who will join you for a midnight trip for ice-cream, and the one who love you for you. So celebrate your bestie today!!!!

Another Rainy Alabama Day!

So I guess first things first - I need to apologize. Now that school has definitely been kicked into high gear, I have been busier than ever and have been neglecting our blog!! But never fear, I promise to be back in full force.

*Who wants to study for a test on gameday? No one. But this girl did. At least I got to enjoy a little quiet-time at Chloe's Cup (my FAVORITE T-Town coffee shop) before the craziness of Alabama football... Not complaining though - ROLL TIDE all the way. School can wait :)


Why is it that everything thing stressful always seems to happen all at once? I have been so busy with work, first tests of the semester, and attempting to maintain a social life that my priorities have gotten all out of whack.


Today (after this devil of an art history test is over with), I am re-prioritizing and making sure I am taking time for me, refusing to miss the fun things and then seizing the opportunities that present themselves. I would even go further to say that its necessary even for our health to have a little "me-time" thrown in there.

Here is a challenge for you today. Make a list of everything in your life right now and of things to come that make you happy and that you are excited about. Here's mine, love bugs:

1. Driving to Birmingham after my classes today and FINALLY getting to spend a little time with my family

*This is mi padre. He's a pretty cool dude. I'm still trying to get him to understand what PINK is.

2. PINK Campus Reps are going to be at YOGABLISS this Sunday!!!!! YAHOOOOOO!!!!!! My roommate is a yoga-superstar and I can't wait to learn a little yoga for myself and get my 'oomm' on. And even better, here's a little SURPRISE for YOU! We are giving away all kinds of fun YOGA goodies all week so stay tuned in to everything BamaPink for your chance to snag some sweet freebies, gorgeous!

3. Dunkin' Donuts coffee - the new location just opened up on campus and I am rewarding myself after my test with a big cup-o-joe. ahhhhhhh

4. Working at the store tonight - Work? Are you crazy? Yes, I absolutely love my job at Victoria's Secret and the fabulous girls I get to work with every day. Bring on the midnight shift!

5. The weather is finally getting cooler- enough said.

6. BAMA HOME GAME THIS WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

7. Still really excited about last Friday night - I went to a Kelly Clarkson, Carolina Liar, and the Fray Concert. Let me just say that they killed it... and now I want to grow up and be Kelly. 


So there you go. I am feeling better already. Now only an hour and a half until this test is over with and I'm golden! Stay dry today, angelwings!!!

Love,
Rebecca

Away Game Blues

It's one of those weeks that we all dread. It seems that every student at the University has a test or a project due every day this week; so, everyone has packed their bags and filled their Starbucks cups to move into the library for the week. Just when we thought it couldn't get any worse, it's an away game weekend (aka no tailgating, no shakers, no Rammer Jammer). Although this week is filled with academics and not as much Alabama spirit, traditions, and fun, the girls at Alabama know how to spice up a week of coffee and 5 hour energies - their outfits. 

My best friend and roommate, Katherine, might as well be my very own fashion icon, or dress up Barbie. She is a Pinterest Guru, knows every notable fashion blog on the Internet, and may as well be a pro shopper. Did I mention she can do hair? Anyways, just like most Alabama girls, Katherine has the challenge of putting together several outfits throughout the day - work, class and library. It's easy to throw on something, but Tuscaloosa is our catwalk so it's always fun to play dress up. 

For work outfits, during these sunny Tuscaloosa "it's not still summer, but not yet fall" weather, pairing jean and solid colors is always a stylish yet comfortable combination. High-waisted, flowy skirts with a tucked in shirt is a super trendy look in the south. Pair it with a chunky, statement necklace with a pair of slide on wedges or tribal boots, gives you a stylish yet business casual look for work.


For class and the library, it is ALL about comfort here at Alabama. We may not dress up for class with a cute outfit, but we will rock that t-shirt and tempo shorts like it's the cutest outfit we have ever put on. Neon tennis shoes and laces are super popular here on campus, they give you just enough pop of color to spice up your 'on the go' outfit or for the gym. Tempo shorts and leggings are perfect to pair with an oversized t-shirt and do not forget an oversized sweater to curl up with in the colder classrooms. 


Here's what we are obsessed with this week:

Pure Barre



It's catching on like wild fire here in Tuscaloosa! It is a fitness studio that provides full body work outs utilizing the ballet barre to perform movements to music. They have wonderful student packages and results are said to be seen with just ten classes! It is the newest and most unique exercise classes to hit the world of fitness! 

Monogram Necklaces 


Let's get real - everyone loves a good monogram, especially their own. So why not wear it? A simple, dainty monogram necklace is a staple to any outfit. It is classy, chic and trendy while being a personal piece as well. They also look great layered with other fine and dainty necklaces as well as well as with statement pieces. They can also be dressed up or down. All in all, I am obsessed and counting down the days until Christmas (hopefully Santa will bring me one this year).

DIY Projects 



Although the day in the life of a college student seems rather hectic and packed, let's be honest ladies, we have a lot of free time on our hands now and then. Ever since Pinterest became popular, I was convinced that I was meant to be crafty. I started going around to local antique shops and Goodwill stores to find pieces that inspired me. You know what they say, 'One man's trash is another man's treasure.' Well I found tons of treasures and was inspired by many blogs online on different things to do. Repurposing furniture and creating little knick knacks for around the house is a rewarding hobby and activity. DIY projects usually save money too, and shabby chic mixed with modern is extremely trendy right now when it comes to home decor.


PS - check up with us on TWITTER @bamaVSPINK for links and information about our Yoga Event at Yoga Bliss on Sept. 23rd!! Hope to see you all there!

Happy Friday!

HAPPY FRIDAY!
 

I love this photo so much. I found it on Pinterest a few weeks ago and it reminds me so much of me and my best friend. 


What are you doing this weekend? Go make some memories! Its the first BAMA home game - I think that calls for a little celebration.

Because HELLO!!!! We are in college!!!  How many people have told you that this is "the time of your life?" Don't get me wrong, I definitely am having the time of my life here at Bama, but I'm going to be honest. I refuse to "peak" in college. So here is my challenge to you, break out of your routine today - drive a different way to campus, paint your nails purple, or let your hair down and give your self a break!


And I am the most guilty of this. I am the worst about saying "yes" to so many commitments and then before I know it, I haven't left any time for myself to enjoy "the time of my life." I am currently in a creativity class and we've been learning about motivation. In class yesterday, I learned about how without intrinsic motivation, we aren't able to access our most truly creative abilities. Thankfully, this class has helped me realize how much intrinsic satisfaction I get from certain activities as opposed to other ones.

So I think you should join me this weekend (and for forever!) and start discovering where your passions lie and GO AFTER THEM, love bugs! You are strong and stunning and intelligent - now go get 'em girl!

#TailgateWithPINK Week 2 - TOP 5 Tweet Off

So all of you Angel Wings are AH-MAZING. My phone has literally been dying by 3pm everyday because the light never turns off from all your tweeting! But am I going to complain?? Absolutely not! Cause who needs to text boys when we could be tailgating with PINK!?



Tonight we officially passed 14,000 votes!! WHAAAA? Like I said... amazing. Sydney and I have been keeping track of all the votes and we have a little news for you...

Alpha Chi

KKG

At 10pm tonight, those 6 sororities will be on equal playing ground - we will begin counting the final tally starting at 10pm tonight and the sorority that tweets the most votes between tonight and Friday wins.

Here are some rules to keep in mind:

- Make sure to include @bamavspink so we can know you voted
- Your tweets also need to be sent to @vspink
- Include #TailgateWithPINK and then BAMA somewhere in the tweet
- Do not put UT, Tenn or any other form of the word Tennessee in the tweet or it gives them a vote too

But there are so many things to be excited about! Such as...

It's FRIDAY EVE!
 and... we are also flexing our big National Champion muscles at Tennessee and showing them who's boss in our Tailgate With PINK tweet-off!!!! OlĂ©!

At this VERY moment, Bama has a whopping 6,795 votes!!!!!!! What?!?! That's AH-MAZING! Like, I must go to school with a bunch of rock stars. Who knew.

And because I love all you angels so very much, here's a little love!

How I Wear My Pink!

First things first: Today I am so thankful - Sometimes when things out of our control happen, it forces us to step back and take inventory of all that we have. All of our thoughts and prayers here at UA are going out to the people being affected by Hurricane Issac right now.

But on a happier note... GREAT JOB BAMA! So far we are still in the lead to win a Tailgate With Pink this fall! We are putting a whoppin' on Tennessee right now but the competition lasts until next Friday so keep those tweets rolling in! Remember all you need to include is "BAMA" "UA" or "ALABAMA" somewhere in the tweet along with the hashtag #TailgateWithPINK. You are rockstars. Truely. Now keep on rocking and lets remind UT what a Rocky Block feels like!

So I'm going to give you a little personal information about myself... I've had the worst, most annoying cold all week, sniffles and everything. Today when I woke up and saw how dreary it looked outside, all I wanted to do was crawl back in bed. But instead, I decided to go for the "relaxed" look when going to class and chose to wear some PINK!


*Now look how happy I am! See, PINK can solve all the world's problems

 So I paired my hotchacha pink Boyfriend Tee with my favorite pair of classic all black boot Yogas.
I'm also starting to realize that pretty much everything I owned has become a shade of pink since becoming a PINK campus rep... I'm sure a blog post of pictures of it all will come soon when all the pink becomes too much to handle. I guess it is a good problem to have :)

But happy Tuesday loves and don't forget your umbrellas tomorrow!

Love,
Rebecca

Puppy Love

Weekend Recap:

 My puppy Lucy came to stay with me in T-Town! Not a whole lot I love more than getting to spend the day with my pup! We had big plans to go down to the River Walk but.......
all Lucy ended up wanting to do was snuggle up with the PINK DOG! I guess everyone needs a little PINK in their lives.

 but.... CONGRATS BAMA! We are off to an early lead in our 'tweet-off' against Tennessee to Tailgate With PINK! Keep those tweets rolling in! 

Things to Remember:
- Use the #TailgateWithPINK to @VSPINK and VOTE BAMA!
- Be careful not to say/type/mention "UT" "Tenn" or any other form of "Tennessee" because that gives them a vote too!
- Add a hashtag of your student organization or sorority and they group with the most votes on Sept. 7 wins a FREEBIE PARTY!

This week is off to a GREAT start! HAPPY MONDAY PINK BAMA BABES!

Love,

Guess who was caught wearing PINK?

Introducing.......
LONDON!

Want to know how London and Chelsea snagged these great PINK accessories? Last month, users of the PINK NATION iPHONE APP received a free PINK iPhone case with any PINK purchase in stores!

Pink Nation is a great way to stay connected with all things PINK and our way to reward our most loyal and excited PINK girls! Its free to join - all you have to do is go to pink.victoriassecret.com to get started!


So what could possibly be better than being a member of PINK NATION?? Having the free APP on your phone, of course! You can access members only exclusives from anywhere right there on your iPhone! From free panty coupons to iPhone cases, this is your way to be the first to know about what's going on in the world of PINK.

New Year, New Roommates

With a new year comes big changes. Just a couple weeks ago I moved into my new condo in Tuscaloosa with a whole new set of roommates. I think that a new place and new roommates can be tough sometimes but fortunately I have been so lucky with two of the greatest roommates ever!



Tonight we decided to throw a little "slumber party" for ourselves complete with the Incredibles, Midnight In Paris, popcorn and of course our favorite comfy PINK gear. Who doesn't love a slumber party with your best friends???

My yoga-lovin' roomie on the left is lounging in PINK's full-zip hoodie in a relaxed purple while my always cool and stylish roomie on the right is working the boyfriend tee with the yoga leggings.

Sounds like a good night to me!

How I wear my PINK

Don't let those Monday blues get you down!


Its Monday and less than 48 hours away from the first day of classes. I know... I hate to see summer go but I'm so happy that everyone is finally back in Tuscaloosa! Check out my comfy-cute outfit from today for a little PINKspiration! All you need is a couple pieces to layer and then you're out the door to class, running errands, or to a friend's house!

So today I layered my black lace PINK bandeau underneath a baby pink slouchy racer-back. Then comes my favorite... the fold-over PINK yoga crop in the cutest Aztec print I've ever seen! Gotta love that Aztec.




 So how do you layer your favorite PINK pieces?? Leave us a comment or tweet us @bamaVSpink!!

We are in a 'tweet-off' competition with Tennessee for PINK to take over the Capstone and throw a tailgate like you've never seen! So go follow us on twitter! Right now!
