Overnight hair styles | Back to School

Hey guys, Friday flew by so fast, I didn't recognise I hadn't posted! Again, I had intended to do these styles on myself, but due to a recent bad experience at the hair dresser's, I sadly couldn't. More on that in my hair update. For these hair styles you can prep your hair from the night before and wake up to gorgeous hair in the morning. Luckily, many of them are my go-to styles, so I've posted about them before!

7 Study Habits Every College Student Needs | Back to School

Studying can be one of the most tedious aspects of college, especially if you wait until test time to cram in all of your learning. It helps to think about studying even before classes start, as college is more fast paced than secondary school or high school even was.

4 Ways to Maintain a good Diet at College | Back to School

You know that saying, “you are what you eat”? Well it’s mostly true. If you eat junk, you will feel like junk and you will not perform your best. In college you have to fend for yourself, handle your home life (if you live on campus), academics and social life and somewhere in there, you have to eat. The quickest options between classes may not be the healthiest ones, and may lead you down a road of weight gain, acne and health problems. Have you ever realised that most people experience weight gain or acne flair ups during college? Late night study sessions, greasy fast foods, and caffeinated beverages are biggest culprits. Here are  non-boring ways to maintain a healthy diet in college.

Balancing Work & Play | Back to School

Unlike high school or secondary school, you may have lots of time in between classes and there’s no restrictions on what you can do with your free time. This lack of structure to your every second of the day can be both liberating and destructive. It’s up to you to decide what you want to do in this time. In many universities, there are clubs, Greek societies, sports and of course, PARTIES to take part in. Some of these parties, or fetes (as we call them in Barbados) may be hosted by the student societies of your campus or may be independent. Culturing a fabulous social life can be very easy during this time, but what about your academics?

College Relationship advice (from a guy) | Back to School

Hey all! We're lucky to have Tyrell guest writing for this post. It's always nice to hear relationship advice from a guy's point of view.
College is the place where your life will definitely start to feel much more real. In your final year, and even more so in your final semester, if your life doesn’t have direction, and you don’t know what is next for you, then you probably might find yourself in an early mid-life crisis. There are many ways to gain direction; for example, some people are born with it, some have to discover it, some people have to fight for it and some people just don’t believe enough. I hope none of you awesome readers are the latter. Direction in college is essential in college, as touched on when deciding a major. I know from experience that without it you can fall short of excellence. It’s important to have goals just like everyone else, but how do we reach them? That is what direction is. However don’t get discouraged just yet because falling in love in college and a solid college relationship can also give you some form of direction.

3 Outfit Ideas for College | Back to School

Finally the switch from wearing lame uniforms and now, you’re in your own clothes! It’s the perfect place to experiment with style, colour and trends. But remember one thing, a college campus is a lot bigger than your secondary school/ high school and there will be lots of walking to be done. Regardless of the weather, lecturers expect you to be in class, so comfort and prep is a must.

5 Tips for Deciding your Major | Back to School

You’ve decided to go to college but the idea of having just 1 major is stressing you. That’s ok, not everyone is inspired to decide on their career path from very early. Although I was, I surely had those moments where I felt like changing majors and as I move forward to considering a Master’s the options have me at a crossroads.

6 ways to Finance College | Back to School

Many of my Barbadian readers know the dire situation the local government has recently put students pursuing tertiary level education in. They've cut their spending to higher level education and left students with a large bill to foot and very little time to put together their finances. Just under a year since they made their decision in fact. In other countries, the student usually has to pay part of their tuition and housing, and if you’re an out-of-state, regional or international student the extra costs can sky-rocket. So here are a few ways to help you finance your college experience!

Headed to College! | Back to School Series 2014

This year is so different, I’m not going back to school, at least not as a student. The feeling is so surreal! I still wanted to help those of you out who had to head back so I’ve put together a series for the rest of August.

I’ll still have a couple fun posts, but I definitely wanted to share some useful information with new university students or those returning to college.
