8 Tips for Long, Healthy Hair

Hair Photo

Hey everyone! I recently just had my hair dyed and I am super excited about it. Both above photos were taken 24 hours apart, and I don’t know how I like my hair better. I’m still not used to it being lighter, I really loved my black-brown hair. Yes, I realize that people get their hair done everyday, but this was my first time in four years and I LOVE talking about hair so bare with me! In this blog post, I wanted to give you guys my hair story and share some tips to grow your hair long and keep it healthy. I’ve done this before, and made videos, but I took them down, due to some updated methods I’ve chosen. My whole life, pretty much, I’ve gotten questions about my hair, or if it’s real or extensions, how I keep it healthy, and all that…

People often ask, how do you keep your hair so long, and it’s not dried out? Well, I actually had a long journey to where I’m at today. I’ll give you all some background, so that maybe someone with the same or similar hair type to mine can use my advice! Continue reading “8 Tips for Long, Healthy Hair”

Leave a Job Interview with Confidence!

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! Being almost done my Commerce degree, a conversation I’m constantly having with my friends at school starts off with, “what the Hell are we going to do after we’re done school?”


With a degree that is so broad and general, and a marketing and management major, the possibilities are endless, yet also limited when one doesn’t have “5-7 years experience” like many of the job postings are looking for. They ALSO require a business degree; so I have one of those, but one of those are more valuable than the other…the experience. Nowadays, I’m trying to be more involved and put myself out there, and show that I can contribute mutually to a company or job, but paid experience, in my opinion, is more valuable on a resumé, you can correct me if I’m wrong, because I’m new to this.

I’m writing today about techniques and advice that I’ve collected to help someone get a job. These tips are from conversations I’ve had with managers, friends with established careers, and human resources and career advisors that I’ve talked to in the past.

Obviously, the first thing you need is a resumé, which is a one to two page summary of all your work and volunteer experience, as well as your level of education and other talents (computer competent, excellent public speaker, etc.). There are many templates online that you can use to make sure your resumé is in the correct format, but make sure it is not too long, and that you’re not using any irrelevant information about yourself. I also learned that if you are applying for a specific job, cater your resumé to the job requirements, because if your words match what they are looking for in the position, you’ll be recognized as a suitable candidate.

5 Tips to get BACK into School Mode

What’s up everyone? Happy Friday! So, for most of us students, we’ve just finished our second week back at school after a long Christmas break where we either slept, worked, hung out, ate, or something totally unrelated to practicing equations or writing 5000 word essays, for majority of the time. My Christmas break was spent in my hometown, where I was only awake for at least 4-5 hours of daylight, and worked at the local sports lounge. I have found it a little challenging to get back into organizing my life and waking up at decent hours, that i have decided to create a list of ways that will make our lives easier.

I realize most of these “back-to-school” lists come out before the break even ends, but many people don’t realize they need some “assistance” until they start falling behind, so people, I am here to help you. It doesn’t have to be January 1st to have a “perfect” start to the year. Your perfect start can be on Monday, January 20th, and be just as good. So, let’s get started…

1. Sleep Schedule

My sleep schedule for all 23 days of my Christmas break was: go to bed at three or four in the morning and wake up at one or two in the afternoon the next day. An effective way to back that schedule back on track in a jiffy is NOT to force yourself to go to bed early (this won’t work because you’ll only just lay there until the time you usually go to bed), but try to wake up at six or seven in the morning. It doesn’t matter if you’ve gone to bed at 4:00 am…just WAKE UP before 8, and you’ll be able to go to bed by ten or eleven the next day, voila! You’re welcome.

2. Eating Schedule Continue reading “5 Tips to get BACK into School Mode”
