9 Ways to Wrap the Perfect Gift

12/11/2013

They say it’s better to give than to receive, and as someone who loves to wrap gifts, I definitely agree with that statement! Of all the things I love to do during the holiday season, wrapping gifts is definitely near the top of my list, and over the past few years I’ve developed a few techniques for making my gifts look that much more tempting sitting underneath the Christmas tree. Here are a couple of my tried-and-true gift-wrapping tips!

Tip #1: Try picks

What’s a pick? It’s a small decorative object or cluster of objects, like a few Christmas tree leaves or a group of baubles, that’s in the form of, well, a pick. These were originally made to stick in wreaths to add flair to them, but it turns out they also make the perfect toppers for Christmas gifts! What I’ll do is tie a giant bow first, and then tuck the pick right behind the center knot. Voila – instant wow factor!

Wrapping paper: Marshalls; ribbon, pick, washi tape and tag: Michaels

Tip #2: Try stacking multiple gifts together with coordinating paper

You can create really interesting present shapes by combining two or three separate smaller packages into one larger piece. Of course, only do this when the gifts are related and will be used together! Play around with how you incorporate ribbon – often, the added height and different shapes of your individual gifts help you elevate a standard ribbon into a sculptural element!

4 Tech Innovations for Your Best School Year Yet (& Office 365 Giveaway!)

11/19/2013

Her Campus has been proud to partner with Microsoft as an Office Champion for three years and counting to bring you tools, tips and tech goodies that will keep you at the top of your class. To kick off this year’s partnership, Microsoft sent me to Seattle to visit the Microsoft Campus and learn about the latest Windows and Office product updates! Read on for my top tech takeaways for collegiettes and find out how you can enter to win a copy of Microsoft Office for yourself!

For the Perfect Study Guide: OneNote

Question: What’s efficient about having a separate document of notes for every lecture and every class? Answer: Nothing. Does that sound a lot like what you’re doing with your current note-taking? Stop. Now. Seriously.

Enter OneNote, a note-taking program that lets you organize notes into tabs and folders within a notebook so you can keep all your notes for a certain class together. You can also search across all your notes easily so you can quickly look up something you wrote down in class. No more combing through a million files!

When it comes time to put together a study guide, you can easily see everything you’ve got at a glance, whether that’s notes you’ve taken or even images or documents, which you can embed right into your OneNote notebook.

#GetItDone & Win a Karma Wi-Fi Hotspot & the Trip of a Lifetime

11/7/2013

Happy #GetItDone Day, collegiettes! Today, Microsoft is celebrating everything we do to #GetItDone and maximize our productivity, whether that's in completing our class assignments, working out at the gym, crafting the perfect resume or planning the most efficient Black Friday shopping schedule (hey, I know some of you are planning ahead like me)! More often than not, we're taking care of all these responsibilities and hobbies by multitasking: not limiting ourselves to completing one task at a time, but leveraging the resources and technology at our disposal to switch quickly between school, play, and work.

Microsoft is committed to empowering everyone to free themselves from tethered work forever. To see this in action, if you're in the New York City area, drop by the TKTS bleachers in Times Square from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. or 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. today, November 7, for an exciting #GetItDone surprise! Read more about #GetItDone Day, here!

Personally, I'm all about getting it done on the go. One of my favorite apps is Microsoft's OneNote, a fantastic piece of note-taking software which I can access as a program on my laptop, as an app on my smartphone or even as a web app online if I'm using someone else's device. It allows me to view or edit my to-do list, meeting notes or anything else I've jotted down anytime, anywhere.
