Tech Talk: A Solution for Tangled iPhone/iPad Cords?

Many of us already think Apple products make the world a better place, but wouldn't it be even better if the cables didn't get tangled up and were a little more colorful?

I recently received some CableKeeps to review and realized that they are a fun way to "dress up" your iPad or iPhone charger and keep them from getting tangled up on the go when you have to throw them in your purse/bag.

U Chic Approved: HBO’s ‘Girls’

My current TV obsession is HBO’s award winning series "Girls." I watched the first series in a span of about two days (with only 10 30-minute episodes, it did not take long to catch up), and was immediately hooked.

New Year, New Chic: Keeping Up with Your Goals All Year

It's the end of January, but that doesn't mean you still don't have time to make resolutions and try your hardest to become a better you. The hardest part of a New Year's resolution is how to keep them going throughout the year.

Hopefully, with these tips, you can become a better you all year round!

New Year, New Chic: Finding New Hobbies

When you are filling out a survey or some kind of application and it asks what your hobbies are, are you one of those people who always put down the same five hobbies you always do (even if you don’t do them anymore) or do you panic and really wonder if you have any hobbies?

When I see that question or if someone asks it of me, I feel like I am constantly being reminded of what a super lame 20-something-year-old I am. Now that we are growing up, we may feel society's pressure for us to join stamp clubs or go to financial meetings. But don’t give up the hobbies you love just because they seem adolescent!

New Year, New Chic: Finding an Internship/Job

During the holidays, most college students spend their time visiting and traveling with their families and friends. Students are given the chance to take a break from their busy semester schedules and relax instead.

This past holiday break, I came to the panicked realization that I was about to graduate in less than five months and that I didn’t know where to turn for jobs and internships.

The process was stressful and at times a bit overwhelming. I realized my security blanket of college was about to be uncovered as I began to focus on what people love to refer to as “the real world.”

Studying ‘Abroad’ in the U.S.

The term “study abroad” conjures up images of trendy clubs in Barcelona, great food in Florence or amazing landmarks in Paris. However, this spring semester, I set off on my own study abroad program right here in the U.S. My next four months will be spent in sunny Los Angeles, a place that most people claim is as good as a foreign country to an East Coaster like myself.

One might ask what lead me to study abroad at home and the answer is simple: opportunity.

Traveling Abroad on a College Student’s Budget (It’s Possible!)

Do you have a dream destination that you would give anything to be able to visit? As students, we are constantly told that this is the time of our lives to travel, but sometimes it seems like we will never make it on our college bank accounts.

I am here to tell you that you can and you will! I never thought I would be able to make it to Paris, but I did, and I paid for it by myself -- even as a full-time student. This doesn’t go without saying that I was definitely on a budget, though!

Here are some tips that helped send me on my way.

The Real Benefits of Joining a Sorority

During my sophomore year of college, I went to recruitment and was graced with incredible sisters and a sorority that has completely changed my life.

I never thought that joining a sorority would impact me as much as it has. My sorority is my life and has made me the person I am today, and I do not know what I would do without the support of my sisters and the feeling of empowerment that Greek Life gives me. It has taught me so much about myself.

Interning 101: What You Need To Know

The first day of my internship, I made sure to leave early. Tardiness is not an attractive first impression! I sat in the waiting room before they unlocked the office, but at least I was on time and prepared.

I had checked the directions carefully before heading out. Parking takes some time on the first day, so if that’s a factor, be sure to add that in as well. Also make sure to prepare the necessary documents. Paperwork is often a substantial part of the first day, so being able to properly fill everything out is a must.

New Year, New Chic: Setting Post-Grad Goals

It happens every year. Somewhere amid the holiday season and New Year’s Eve planning, a friend or family members asks you the dreaded question. While talking about 2013, someone was bound to ask you “What’s your New Year’s resolution?” to which you probably muttered something cliche about losing weight, in a startled realization that you had yet to meet last year’s expectation let alone form a thought about the upcoming year.
