Hautelinks - your weekly source for the best of the web

It's that time of year again! Whether you're currently taking a break from your 6-hour library sesh, dreading the all-nighter you're going to have to pull tonight, or celebrating the end of your exam week (lucky!), one thing is clear: Midterm season is upon us. And with all that test and paper-related stress comes a serious need to relax (and procrastinate a little)!

That's where we come in. The following link list is designed to keep you entertained and happily clicking away while forgetting all about your obligations for a solid 15-30 minutes. From all of us here at CF, you're welcome!

*

*

Fans of The Hills, rejoice: Looks like Lauren Conrad is returning to MTV - only this time, it's strictly business.

*

Styleite talks celebrity airport chic - lots of great outfit inspiration for your next vacay!

*

Prepare to laugh and cringe at the same time: Shine takes a look at the world's worst handbags. I have to say, though, I sorta like some of them in an ironic way.... Sorry, it's true!

*

Fashion Week-approved eyelashes? Sign us up!

*

Single and looking in NYC? (Or just wish you were?) Check out R29's list of fashion's most eligible bachelors. BTW, yes, before you ask, there ARE straight men in fashion.

*

NYLON has a look at the Jimmy Choo & Ugg collaboration. Would you wear any of the pieces?

*

The NY Times dishes up college advice from those who (supposedly) know best.

*

Bypass Facebook Fan Pages is a great idea - you know those pages on Facebook that make you "like" them and grant them access to your info (so they can post on everyone's newsfeeds!) before showing you "hidden" content? This site makes all that content available, no newsfeed-spamming required!

*

Hmm, penny loafers for fall? We're torn on this trend.

*

Cosmo has posted some good stuff recently. See: 10 Hairstyles that Take 10 Minutes (great tips), and The Most Memorable Resume Mistakes (so random!).

*

7 Priceless Works of Art Ruined by Staggering Acts of Idiocy. The art history nerd in me loves this!

*

One of our Twitter followers sent me a great article she wrote about internship success, and it's especially applicable to the media industry. See: My Internship - 5 Lessons I Learned This Summer.

*

CF reader Hannah details her experience interning backstage at Boston Fashion Week!

*

Okay, this is mostly non-work (or library)-safe and semi-offensive, but it's worth knowing about for the debate it brings up: college girl's powerpoint "sex list" goes viral. Basically, a Duke student made a Powerpoint about all the guys she'd hooked up with, complete with Cosmo-style stories and rankings, and it's gone viral.

*

Holier than Now breaks down the camel trend, with great photos & budget-friendly ways to rock this color.

Haha, I loved Paris Hilton's guide to generic Halloween costumes. She does have a knack for finding the most cliche (and skin-baring) costume ideas, year after year.

*

Crushable dishes out college advice, tackling the age-old dilemma, how to deal with your pestering mom.

*

One of our fave bloggers, Erica Domesek, from P.S. I Made This, chatted with gURL.com about following your dreams, crafting a career from your passions, and making the coolest gemstone earrings ever. Totally inspiring!

*
