College Girl Inc.: How To Be Stress Free During Midterm Season

Midterms! What can I really say about them other than it is stressful part of college life and we all go through it. Right now, I have one Midterm to finish and I'm not ready for it but I know I will do do well. I'm always stressed out when it comes to Midterms and I know I'm not the only one either. But do not fret, because I have some ways to make your Midterm season, a very smooth sailing season.

1. Most of people don't do this but it is very helpful, listen to music. Either music you like but not the type of music that distract you. Me, for example, I love to listen to Soca and Reggae music because it works for me and it gets me pumped up to study. 

2. Study Buddies are very useful and reliable to use...utilize it to the best of your abilities. Working in groups makes the workload less stress because you are around people who have one goal, to pass. You make sure your cool with people in your class, get their contact information and set up a Study Buddy date just to study.

3. DO NOT STUDY ON YOUR BED!!!! The worst thing to do is study on your bed because you will not get anything to done because you WILL fall asleep. Trust me, I've been through this plenty of times when I start to study or even when I do homework. Find a place that is comfortable, like a desk, a dinner table or you can even study in school (In a quiet area because loud areas are not the best!) It will avoid you sleeping on yourself. 

4. EAT A SNACK OR FOOD!! You cannot study on an empty stomach. I've tried it before and NO it does not work at all. You have to be functionally and functioning without any food in your stomach is the worst thing to do. Make sure you have a decent snack or reasonable food to eat in your system. Food is like our gas and our body is our car, when a car runs out of gas it means it's time to fill up. So EAT!!

5. Always make sure to talk to your professor when it comes down to your midterm. To make sure you are studying the right things because you don't want to be that person when you study and it was completely wrong. The professor is there to help you and to refresh what's on your study guide. 

6. Remember GET A GOOD NIGHT'S REST. You want you eight hours or more so you can be completely refresh when it come to your Midterms. You don't want to come to your exam looking like death, run's not a great look. You want to be refresh and ready to kick this Midterm in the butt. 

7. BE CONFIDENT. You got this! Smoothing words also work so that the workload doesn't stress you out. Be confident, you own this Midterm, not the other way around.

I hope this helps you out, even though most of you guys finished with Midterms, us in NYC are now in Midterm season!! There's always next semester, you know that you will be prepared and confident in your exams. 

How do you stay stress free during exams?

Saturday's Pick of The Day: iPad Air

I've always been a big fan of the Apple iPad, something I always wanted for a very long time. When the first generation iPad came out in 2010, I was really interested in getting one but you know parents, they are not going to spend so much money on something so big...and it was big. The only thing I didn't like about the first generation iPad was they didn't have a camera on it, until the second generation iPad came out with the camera on it...they got my attention again.
The one I really wanted to get was the iPad Mini because of it being portable and easy to put in your bag without it adding weight to your bag. Until recently, the iPad Air came out in 2013, I was in love!! With it's slick and thin look and weightless feel of it...I was determined to get it. I was very happy when my dad brought me one as a birthday gift because I really needed one for school, because I hate using my laptop because it's so big and it weighs a ton on my shoulder. Me, being a English major and a blogger, I needed a portable piece of equipment and that's where the iPad Air comes along. 
I have the iPad Air 16GB with WiFi for T-Mobile and since I've had it I always use it for school and to write my papers for class it's very helpful. A lot of my friends asks what app I use to write my papers for school, I tell them it's a new app from Apple called Pages. 
 Apple's Pages App

That's the app I use to do my homework and papers for my classes, it is very useful. I also use other apps to write my blog, do other school work and etc.  Another app I use on my iPad Air is the iMovie app, I use that to make my YouTube videos because I don't have a MacBook so I don't know any good software to do my video editing...if anyone know a good video editing software for my PC, it would be greatly appreciated.
After using my iPad Air for almost a month, I can honestly say it is worth it, it's even better to have it from your Cell Phone provider it might be a little cheaper to get then getting it from the Apple store. Because when you get it from the Apple store you don't get the WiFi that is attached with it but you do get the Internet, of course. My iPad Air is more of my notebook than a device since I use it for all my classes and also to do my blog posting. 
iPads are just a good investment to have just like a laptop, so you would be investing in something well worth it.

Friday's Pick of The Day: Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick Review

I'm not a fan of red lipstick, but when I got this lipstick, my views on red completely changed. I wanted to test out the lipstick for three days to see how it look, it's really moisturizing and also if it can last all day. I will give my 100% honest opinion on this product, the good and the bad.
Day One

I just love the color and how it blends with my skin tone, which is a plus for me because I've tried other red lipstick before and it just didn't work for me. That's why I don't always buy red lipstick. Rimmel London Moisture Renew is very moisturizing I love that. It has a nice smooth feel when you put it on your lips, you don't want to take it off. It's just too cute for words because I love it. When I take off the lipstick, it still feels moisturized after taking it off. 

  Day Three

I gave the good, now here's the bad. Even though I did love the lipstick I did have some things I didn't like about it. First, I didn't like the fact that it wasn't a long lasting lipstick for all day. I put on the lipstick at 8:20am but by 9:15am, the lipstick was fading.
  You barely see the lipstick, I wish it was more long lasting. It does leave a little lip tint on it but it can be a little better. It does take a long to take off my lips but other than those two concerns on the lipstick. Overall, I love the lipstick and I will be using it again. Just beautiful. If you want a cute, wearable lipstick that works for you skin tone and looks cute than this is the lipstick for you. Trust me, you will love it!!
What are you favorite lipsticks to wear?

Thursday's Pick of The Day: Origami Owl

I love a nice piece of jewelry whether it's on my neck, on my ear or on my fingers. This piece of jewelry is something that I always wanted for myself because its your life and the things you love in a necklace or bracelet. Origami Owl are custom made jewelry, it's very unique because everyone would have the same things you would have, which makes me more of a beautiful piece to have in your collection. 
Origami Owl was started by Isabella “Bella” Weems when she was 14 years old. For her 16th Birthday, she wanted a car for her birthday, her parents told her she has to work to get her car. She started to do babysitting work and thats when the creation of Origami Owl came to be.
Bella has made Origami Owl into Million Dollar company something she didn't dream that it would be this big. I wouldn't of thought something like that in my mind because it was an amazing idea to come up with a beautiful piece of jewelry like this. 
Even though you can buy it from the actual website itself, there are actual Origami Owl Jewelry Bar, where you have a party to sell different pieces to put into your locket. Also you can also be a hostess and sell the product to friends, family, etc. There are perks to being a Origami Owl Hostess, if you are interested in selling Origami Owl. here's the link: Origami Owl Hostess and any other information you would like to know about the brand, check out Origami Owl

Spirit Football Jersey...How Can I Compare Thee??


When I'm in love with a particular article of clothing, I will let it be known from the rooftop, This is one of them. I been in L-O-V-E with the Spirit Football Jersey, since I saw one of my favorite YouTube Guru (Sarahbelle93x) showing one in her hauls. So let me give you a little mini history about the Spirit Football Jersey: Made in the USA becoming very popular with sororities, fraternities, colleges and sports teams. With its comfortable, the features the unmistakable bold back print in our famous puff font and unique drop-shoulder design. 
 I want to get Spirit Football Jersey but the only thing I don't like about it, is that you have to buy them in bulks, you should be able to get them individual without having to get them in bulks. There are different places that you can go, that sells them individually. So have been looking for other websites to get them individually. This is the ultimate jersey, very comfortable, big and soft. 
I do have questions for people who do the the Spirit Football Jersey, did some of y'all get in bulks or did you go to a particular website to get them individually?  I really want to get one with my sorority and just a regular spirit jersey, also if you have a Spirit Jersey I would like to here your reviews about it.

Here are some websites you can check out if you want a individual Spirit Football Jersey:

Just to name a few pages, and if you have any other pages, please leave them below.

Interview Look #1

Interview Look #2
When I'm on an interview, I know that the look is everything because it shows that you want this job and you are one stylish person at the same time. A look is everything, depends on what type of job your going for because you can look fabulous for a great job or look okay for a okay job. The looks I came up with above is simple yet cute outfit that you can wear either for a job interview or for work. These are simple outfits that can be for business attire and then it can be changed to an after work attire also. 
Just know when your on an interview, remember to be confident, poise and determined to get the job. When you show that your edger to work for them, you have a better chance of getting the job. Also remember, know the history go the job that your working for, if you never been to their store or shop or read their magazine, give them that impression that you have shopped in their stores or read their magazine, they want people who knows what they sell or what type of stuff they have in their stores. 
Just remember, in your mind, you got this job even if you didn't get it yet, just know that job is yours. Even if you don't get the job, just know that there's other opportunities coming your way. Don't give up, just keep on trying until you get the right one for you or just a decent job that will work for you. Think positive and positivity will flows through you.

Great News.....*Drum Rolls Please*

Hey Everyone,

So I been trying to do this for the past year if I wanted to start up a brand new YouTube page. I always wanted to start a new one because the old one I had, I had it since I was a sophomore in high school. It was time for a change. So today, I finally made a brand new YouTube called Being Selene (Pretty Cute, right?). I came up with that name based on my personal Instagram page and I felt since I love watching YouTube videos, I might as well make my own. I will be doing my videos from my iPad until I get a better camera (Parents, wink wink) and my post will also be on my blog page too so you guys are able to check out my videos. I am still waiting for my first video to upload (I totally forgot it takes so long to upload!) but when it's finally uploaded I will be posting it on my page. 

Here is a link below to my *NEW* You Tube page! Please Subscribe and also if you have any video requests or suggestions, you can leave them below this blog post or on my YouTube video.
