If you’re studying in any of these five universities in California, then you must be one filthy rich stud. But you certainly need more than cheap college text books to get through your classes and come out of them in one piece, since not only these universities share the pedestal of being the most expensive universities in the state in terms of annual tuition fee but they are also notable in terms of their academic and social contributions.

According to data provided by CNN Money’s College Cost Finder, here are the five most expensive universities in the State of …

5 Best California Beaches for Sun Tanning

beach1.jpg Summer is just around the corner, and soon enough you’ll be hitting the beach to get that good old summer tan. Of course, you can always skip this part and just find a tanning salon to achieve that sun-kissed look, but if you’re looking to do some surfing or swimming as well, you might as well go to the nearest beach and soak in the sun. Besides, did we mention that the beach is going to be full of all those gorgeous bodies for you to ogle? But then again, you already …

Young Hollywood

young-star.jpgIf you are a regular Internet user or faithfully follow gossip shows on TV, chances are you’ll have an opinion on how out-of-control today’s young Hollywood stars are.

But to be perfectly honest, today’s young Hollywood stars aren’t any wilder or badder than the young stars of yesteryears. As a matter of fact, the shenanigans of such current tabloid fodder as Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears look relatively tame when compared to the escapades of some of the young stars in the 1940s and 1950s. The major difference is that in today’s world …

Ultimate: Yoga Exercise and a Massage

yoga.jpgName one form of exercise, and chances are, I’ve already done it. For years, I’ve been dabbling in almost every kind of workout that comes along just to stay fit. From Tae-Bo to Pilates, I’ve done them all, and modesty aside, I’ve got the body to show for it. Nothing, however, comes close to the benefits I get when I’m doing Yoga. And no, you don’t have to be a human pretzel to be able to practice Yoga, which, after all, literally means “discipline”, something which all of us can certainly use …

Los Angeles Nightlife - I Went, I Partied, I Conquered

One thing I really love about Los Angeles is the nightlife. I mean, I’ve partied at God-knows-how-many nightclubs everywhere in my entire life, but nothing compares to those that pepper LA. Not that the music, ambience, drinks or food are any better than those in, say, New York City, but if you’re hitting the scene in the City of Angels, there’s a bigger chance you’ll bump into, or in some instances, get barfed on by celebrities who are by no means angels. Far from it.
