In case you missed last night’s Emmy Awards – you must watch this hilarious opening skit featuring the Glee cast, Jon Hamm, Betty White, Tina Fey, Kate Gosselin and Jimmy Fallon. In a word = HILARIOUS. This makes me a. laugh and b. super excited for Glee to start back up in the fall!! Happy Monday!Tweet

Happy weekend dear readers! Here’s to hoping that you can take full advantage of one of the last weekends before summer comes to an end! I know that I for one am looking forward to some rest and relaxation after my recent college tour travels. Perhaps I will make a trip to the beach like the adorable image above – however mine would most likely be sans balloons. Sigh! Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend!!
We are back from our college tour travels! We had a great time meeting new RIU fans, passing out free goodies and just hanging outside the campus bookstores. While it’s great to be home we will definitely miss all of the college atmosphere we got to soak in over the past 8 days! You can see all of our pictures from the events on the RIU Facebook Page. In the next two days we will be announcing the winners of the drawings held at each of the college campuses.Tweet
Hello RIU fans! We had another successful event at U of West GA on Friday. After the event we headed on over to Atlanta for a couple days of much needed rest and relaxation. Highlights of the weekend included a trip to the GA Aquarium, a trip to Atlantic Station and Lennox Mall and of course the 5.5 hour drive to Pembroke, NC! Tomorrow we will be located outside the UNCP campus bookstore! Tomorrow we will be heading over to UNC Chapel Hill for our event on Tuesday – then it’s time to head on back to Sunny South Florida!!!Tweet
Alex and Kristin outside the Auburn Bookstore
Another day another successful event! We had a great time today in War Eagle country! Passed out lots of free RIU goodies outside the Auburn University bookstore. A huge thanks to Teresa and everyone else who came to give us ice cold water and those essential AU fans! We are now heading over to Georgia (back in Eastern time!) to visit the University of West GA bookstore. If you are a West GA student be sure to stop by and and say hey and pick up one of our free prize packs! Check out our updated pictures from today’s Auburn event on facebook here. More updates tomorrow!!Tweet
Roll Tide!!! RIU at ‘Bama!
I am happy to report that we had a great event today outside the University of Alabama Supply Store! We gave out a lot of great free giveaways and had a number of entries for our facebook college tour giveaway! Besides the 1:15pm rain downpour – I’d say the day was a success! We want to thank Peter and Michelle for being great hosts for our event and all of the Bama students that stopped by during their first day of classes. You can see our pictures from today’s event on our RIU facebook page. We’ll be adding more each night after our events!
Tomorrow we are headed to the Auburn University bookstore where we will be handing out more giveaways from 11am – 2pm! If you are an Auburn student be sure to stop by!Tweet
Tomorrow Kristin and I travel to Alabama to kick off our College Tour events! You can follow our adventures on Facebook and Twitter where we will be periodically updating as we travel from Alabama to North Carolina! We are super excited to have the opportunity to visit all of these college campuses and spread the word about RIU! According to good ole’ MapQuest we’ll be on the road – in total – for approximately 12.5 hours!! Here’s hoping Kristin made that killer playlist on her iPod! Kristin and I are also hoping to visit some of our other non-collegiate retailers along the way – so if your store is on our route you might just get a surprise drop-in from RIU!Tweet
The first days of school are upon us! While I am happy to be done with my years of high school and college – every fall I still yearn for the first few days of school and all that they encompassed – new gear, new clothes, new friends! Over here at RIU we are still in full back to school mode and this morning I was inspired to create what I think to be a great back to school outfit! Look below to see what I created – all of which is extremely back to school budget friendly – all pieces are $70 and under! On a slightly related note – we would love to see how you are incorporating your back to school looks with your RIU gear. Post your pictures to our Room It Up facebook fan page! (those who do – may be in for a fun surprise!)
That’s right, RIU is heading back to college this month. Not just one college – but five!! We are loading up a RIU emblazoned SUV and hitting the road! From August 18th through 24th Kristin and I will be traveling through the south to visit five southern schools, all whilst spreading the word about Room It Up! Join us for one-day events outside the following campus bookstores – University of Alabama, Auburn University, University of West GA, UNC – Pembroke and UNC – Chapel Hill! Check out our event pages on Facebook – if we are visiting your school be sure to RSVP! We’ll be handing out loads of fun giveaways!!! Hope to see you at one of the tour stops!Tweet
