5 Ways to Show Your Jayhawk Spirit

Do you dream of red and blue? Do you often wish your own hair was as beautiful as the shock-red plumage of Jayhawk himself? Whether you’re a current KU student or just an alumni with a lingering fondness for the team, here are five tools for announcing your spirit loud and clear.

Hats

From visors to beanies, there’s no shortage of headgear that will declare yourself an ardent fan of the Jayhawks. Traditional fans may be satisfied with a baseball cap, but adventurous ones will probably prefer big waffler hats or blue plaid fedoras.

Phone Cases

Protect your smartphone and show a little sports enthusiasm through the use of a KU-approved phone cover. Ladies, the official bookstore also sells them in pink! Find now or miss your chance!

One of the easiest ways to declare your love for KU is with a t-shirt. Wear the school logo with pride; put Jayhawk’s face on your chest for game days; find the right number to support your favorite player.

Koozies

Game day will be here sooner than you think, and all self-respecting beer drinkers will need a koozie or bottle suit before they pop the top. Is there any better tribute to college sports than alcohol?

Gift Cards

Perfect for the friend who already has everything, a Jayhawks gift card will allow them to buy whatever jerseys, hoodies, keychains, coffee mugs or other memorabilia that strikes their fancy. If you can’t decide which is the most appropriate gift, make a gift of them all.

Playing the Guitar without Hurting the Fingers

Guitar strings have gone a long way since its predecessor, the strings made of animal guts. Musicians played the guitar complaining of calluses and bubbles on their fingers because of the low quality guitar strings that would compromise their health.

More than a hundred years ago, the guitar strings evolved into three types namely: nylon for traditional and classical guitars, bronze for acoustic guitars and nickel or steel for electric guitars.

Manufacturers have their own brands of guitar strings but the most sought-after are the Dunlop guitar strings at Guitar Center. If you use this type of strings, your fingers cannot feel the pain every time you strum the guitar because it gives smooth and gentle tactile feel. Since the strings are low tension, they offer the real balance for each string size giving power and dynamism to every sound they produce.

Sound distortion is a thing of the past with Dunlop guitar strings at Guitar Center. The strings give fast break-in time and the quality is satisfactory. The Dunlop guitar strings produce harmonious blending of notes and powerful chord sound.

Preparing Your Feet For Summer

Summer is fast approaching, and that means it’s time for flip flops. But are you ready to bare your feet after a long winter of boots and socks? Here are five steps to prepare your walkers for the sunshine.

1. Exfoliate Everything

Flip flops showcase your entire foot at one point or another. The tops are always visible; the bottoms become so once you sit down and cross your legs or jiggle your ankles. Leave none of your skin crusty and dry. Slough off all the dead cells.

2. Moisturize The Good

Once you’ve revealed a fresh new layer of skin, it’s important to keep it in good shape by applying creams, lotions and moisturizers to maintain its hydration. Do this at least twice a day, ideally in the morning and again at night.

3. Buffer The Bad

For all their convenience, flip flops aren’t kind to your feet, not when your heels are constantly grinding into a cheap material with no give and no protective padding. Make it a habit to buffer the bottoms of your feet during summertime. Remove build-up before it begins.

4. Paint Your Nails

Flip flops and pedicures go hand-in-hand, or perhaps toe-in-toe, so your first order of business after buying a pair should be getting your toenails done. You might also want to treat your cuticles after they’ve been neglected for the winter.

5. Enjoy The Sun

Congratulations! Your feet are now presentable to other humans. Click here to find a great pair of flip flops to wear all summer long!
