6 Reasons Why You Should Attend the Taylor Swift Concert


As if it requires much convincing, we really think it would be in your best interest to attend the Taylor Swift concert if you have the chance. Co Founder, Karen, recently went to her show in Seattle and was blown away by her performance. Rumor has it many of the tickets are sold out for her remaining shows, but there is nothing a ticket scalper can't fix! Below are 6 (hmm we really should have came up with '22'...) reasons why you should attend the Taylor Swift concert:
  1. Vance Joy is her opening act--his voice is phenom!
  2. It's an instant therapy sesh because she gives a lot of motivational speeches throughout the show.
  3. You can dress up super cute and no one will stare because they will be dressed up super cute too in honor of Tay Tay.
  4. She shows off her cats...like, a lot.
  5. She surprises you with celebrities left and right. Example: Fetty Wap , Seahawks' quarterback, Russell Wilson and R&B songstress Ciara!
  6. She pulls people up on stage....it could be YOU!
Click here for a link to the rest of her 1989 Tour Dates. We hope you can make it to a show!

Summer 2015 Road Trip Playlist



For the past two years, we've brought to you TSS Summer Playlist 2013 and TSS Summer Playlist 2014 and since you loved it so much, we have created TSS Summer Playlist 2015 through the recommendations from TSS Reader and Alpha Delta Pi alumnae, Stephanie Rosa. Stephanie is no stranger to music as she is embarking on a summer travel tour equipped with road trips and exploring different countries. She's even started her own blog called Sights 'N Sounds With Steph to track her adventures and all the music she encounters on the way. When speaking on the playlist she shares, "This is a super versatile mix! These were all pulled from my road trip playlist. One thing I did was have a ton of different genres to keep things interesting, and most of these songs cannot be found on the radio (because when I wanted to hear the radio I would switch over). I made sure to include some throwbacks too because they were fun to jam out to on those long drives".

Checkout the playlist here and if you don't have Spotify then check out the full playlist below!

1. Sun Models- Odesza

A Girl's Guide To Coachella


Coachella tickets go on sale today and we are so excited because Coachella is pretty much life-changing! If you're wondering if you should go, our answer is YES YES YES! Coachella is so popular that they've been having it go down over two weekends. Both weekends offer an awesome line up. This year we are looking forward to seeing The Weekend, Drake, Axwell, AC/DC and much more. It is going to be monumental. But, first things first, you've got to buy a ticket! Go to Coachella.com and sign up. Signing up will allow you to track your profile and the tickets you've bought. Here are some other helpful tips:

  • You will want to buy a ticket AND a shuttle pass. 
  • For lodging, get a house! It is the most affordable and convenient. 
  • Stay close to the fairgrounds--it's just more convenient. 
  • Dress minimally, but tasteful. If you buy something from Urban Outfitters or Free People it will be super cute, but just keep in mind that most people will be shopping there. 
  • Arrive at the fairgrounds at sun down--that is when most of the amazing artists go on and it's less hot. 
  • Sandstorms are common so wear a bandana to protect your hair. 
  • Carry cash. 
  • Rent a walkie talkie; there is no cell phone reception. 
  • Wear comfortable flats--like not even strappy flats because those eventually hurt. 
  • The cab line is super far from the fairgrounds so if you decide to take it, be prepared to walk far. 
  • Stay hydrated as you're basically in the desert and it's hot! 
  • Wear sunblock to protect yourself from the sun. 
  • Don't wait until the last minute to buy tickets!
Good luck and hopefully we will see you there!!

#Ready2Roo with Teva


*This is a Sponsored post written by The Sorority Secrets on behalf of Teva for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% ours.

In February we shared with you the  Ultimate Music Festival Outfit Guide, but we left out one other important ensemble piece: Teva footwear!
Teva sells all sorts of footwear from sandals, to flip flops, to boots and much more for both men and women. Since 1984, Teva has been a brand for the go anywhere, do anything, "live life for the unscripted moments that make the best memories" type of person. Their brand is fit for those people who like to get out and have adventures. We love how versatile the styles are and how you can virtually cover and secure your entire foot, which is awesome for festivals since you're walking around a lot (and dancing of course!).

Speaking of festivals, Teva is the official footwear of the Bonnaroo Music Festival! We are seriously considering attending the festival this year, and if we do, we would rock the  Original Sandal  in a hot, bright color. We would even sport the Capri Wedge because it is super cute and stylish but still offers support. 



Really, when it comes to festivals it's just all about these three important things:
  1. Staying comfortable
  2. Drinking lots of water
  3. Snapping pictures to capture the memories
It sounds like Teva can help with the "staying comfortable" part! What are your tips and tricks for festivalgoers? As an official sponsor of the Bonnaroo Music Festival, Teva is looking to help festivalgoers make the most of their time on The Farm by collecting tips and tricks from festival veterans. Whether it’s a tip to make sure you check out ‘The Jesus Tent’, to using an emergency blanket to keep your tent cool during the day, there are things that festivalgoers know that others could benefit from. These tips and tricks are being aggregated on Bonnaroo’s The Fountain, where people can go to get prepped for the experience of a lifetime. Share your tips below and be sure to hashtag it #Ready2Roo. While you're prepping for this festival and other festivals coming up, keep in mind that you can easily buy Teva sandals straight from Zappos
Summer festivals here we come!
