  • Acrylic Paint
  • Scissors

How to make:

  1. Fold your piece of construction paper in half and cut it to the length you want it.
  2. Take a new sponge and outline a pattern. I made an outline of a bralette. Cut out the pattern.
  3. Figure out what you want your card to say. Idea: Bralettes be Valentines! OR Will you be my PINK valentine? Write your message on the folded construction paper. Make sure to leave room for the sponge stamp!
  4. Dip your stamp into the acrylic paint and carefully stamp it where you want on your card.

  • One or more glass cups (depending how many you want to make)
  • Glass paint marker (Craft stores have them $2)
  • Oven 375 degrees

How to make:

  1. Grab your cup and markers. The marker will need to be shaken and press the tip to make the ink come out
  2. When the ink is ready, begin decorating your glass with your markers.
  3. When your masterpiece is done, let dry for four hours.
  4. After ink has dried, heat oven to 375 and put your glasses in BEFORE oven is preheated. Glasses need to be in oven for 40 minutes.
  5. When the timer is done…WAH LAH your glasses are ready to come out! Be careful glasses will be hot!

PINK Break!

Spring break is a time students get to put away their books and head out to the beach for some fun in the sun with friends. Over the years Victoria’s Secret PINK has brought Spring Break to a whole new level. Every year Victoria Secret ‘PINK’s out’ spring break and throws a huge bash in an area known for its beaches, South Florida!

PINK Break 1

It all started in 2004 at Miami Beach. Spring break was welcomed by a Pink Runway Show featuring new and exclusive spring break bikinis. Models, like Alessandra Ambrosio, passed out Pink goodies like free t-shirts and interacted with fans that came out.

Due to its success, Pink continued on with the spring break tradition and the next major party was also held in Miami and had guests such as Selita, Ebanks, Ciara, Jojo, Nick Cannon, Kristin Cavallari and Haylie Duff. Party go-ers could dunk celebrities in the dunk tank, watch Nick Cannon juggle or indulge in some ice cream to beat the heat. There was also non-stop DJ entertainment, a smoothie bar, tug of war, pool relay races, volleyball and many other fun activities for PINK fans to enjoy.

KristIn Cavallari, Haylie Duff, Ciara, DJ Irie, & Nick Cannon

The next major PINK bash was thrown in 2010 at Key West’s landmark Mallory Square. Not only was their an exclusive PINK-ified Pop-Up Shop featuring must have Spring Break items but also a photo booth, body painting, glitter tattoos, braiding and beading, friendship bracelet making, palm readings, and even hacky sack! Afterwards there were musical performances by One Republic and Matt White and a guest appearance by Ashley Tisdale and  Behati Prinsloo.

 PINK Break 3

 In 2011, Victoria’s Secret PINK hosted Spring Break in Miami with the theme “Let’s go wild in Miami” the celebration was at Lummus Park in South Beach. The party was hosted by PINK models Chanel and Behati. At the party Victoria’s Secret launched their exclusive “Aloha Pink Collection” and gave early access to all members who attended.  The day was filled with fun activities, beach challenges, freebies and more!

In 2012, PINK went all out during Spring Break. By then Victoria’s Secret PINK’s spring break event had become the biggest annual event to hit South Beach. The party was held at the Shelborne Beach Resort and took 3 days to set up. They worked their magic and transformed the upscale beach-side lounge of the Shelborne to a Victoria’s Secret Pink haven complete with balloons, furniture, logos, banners and pool furniture all made exclusively for the event. The event welcomed over 800 people and was the buzz of the town thanks to hosts Joe Jonas, Chanel Iman and Elsa Hosk. It featured goodies such as a PINK ice cream stand, branded games, water pong, a photo booth, surfboard signing station, a taco stand, and an exclusive Pop-Up PINK store to display all the hottest trends for spring break.

PINK Break 4

This year PINK kicked off Spring Break with a vote-off for the next PINK bandeau. This was open to all PINK Nation members and featured the most talked about piece of the season the bandeau! After weeks of voting the winner was…..

PINK Break 5

I can’t wait to pick up and rock this new bandeau this spring break. It is the perfect piece to layer under a cover-up or even wear for a day of tanning at the beach! There also will be a private shopping event featuring the newest Spring Break Apparel and goodies by the brand open only to Pink Nation Members. The event will be hosted after-hours, have special offers, a DJ to jam out to while shopping for the hottest looks and offers exclusively for those who attend! You can get your invite at pink.victoriasecret.com and join the fun February 17th.

We can’t wait to see the fun PINK has planned for this Spring Break!

Let the #VSFashionShow Countdown Begin!

2010 Fashion Show

The Victoria Secret Fashion Show is a prime time television event like no other. Originally the fashion shows occurred around Valentines day as a marketing technique in the 1990’s, and were not aired on national television. The first was in 1995 at the iconic Plaza hotel in NYC. In the later 1990’s and early 2000’s the fashion shows moved to the web. In 2001, the Victoria Secret Fashion Show moved to around the Christmas Holiday season and made its debut airing on ABC. Every year after that, the fashion show has aired on CBS except in 2004 where instead of a traditional annual fashion show, the models did an “Angels Across America Tour”, where they visited many hot locations across the USA promoting Victoria Secret.

2012 Angels

The fashion show has been held in a number of hit locations including Miami, Los Angeles and of course New York City. Every year the show becomes bigger, better and more lavish than the year before though various celebrities, set design, theme, costume and music. Musical acts include Spice Girls, Kanye West, Destiny’s Child and Mary J Blige. A group of 20 to 40 of the hottest models every year are hand picked to model, and become the world renown Victoria Secret Angels.

In 2006 Victoria Secret PINK made its debut into the show!

Doutzen Kroes 2006

Something to watch for is the Fantasy Bra. Every year a different high end jewelry designer is picked to bedazzle and glorify a bra and one of the top Angels is picked to wear. Angels who have worn the Fantasy Bras include Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima. The bra is used as a centerpiece for the event. These bras are for sale, as the ultimate gift, but to date only one has sold due to their extreme price tag.

Floral Fantasy Bra

This year, the Victoria Secret Fashion Show will be held in New York City featuring artist Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars. Make sure you watch out for this year’s Fantasy Bra, the Floral Fantasy Bra being worn by Alessandra Ambrosio being valued at $2,500,000. The Victoria Secret Fashion Show airs on CBS on December 4th at 10pm! Visit Victoriasecret.com/fashionshow and see how to train like an Angel, how to earn your wings and see exclusive sneak peek footage!

Join your Victoria Secret PINK campus reps for the viewing party at Pots! Doors open at 9pm! Come out for exclusive free merchandise, games, raffles and a whole lot of fun

LOVE! I wear yoga pants for everything. They’re a perfect comfy solution that can still be cute for those lazy days of class. I like to wear them to the library to study too because they’re comfy, warm and cute. Of course, I wear them to the gym with a PINK V-neck to work out also. And they’re great for just lounging with friends. I wear my yoga pants with sandals and sneakers.

I wear my yoga pants EVERYWHERE. With boots as leggings, to the gym, to class! Nothing is better the spending a lazy Sunday napping in yoga pants. So comfy!

Alex

I wear my PINK yoga pants every day! I love to be comfortable and these are the best bottoms to wear whenever. It’s fun to match the colors of the yoga pants with my $2 for $28 pieces.

Alyssa M.

I love to wear the yoga pant! The stretchy, comfy fabric is perfect to throw on with an over-sized shirt and to the gym.

Alyssa D.

These pants are perfect for all around campus!  I pair them with all of the essential Victoria’s Secret PINK tops and tanks.  It’s such a cute and fashionable look, great for any plans I make!

I live in my PINK yoga pants. Whether I’m going to class, to the gym or to sleep these pants make it easy to be both comfortable and stylish.
