The Perfect Pen for Collegiettes

5/22/2014

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of BIC 4 Color. All opinions are 100% mine.

Call me retro, but I love putting a pen to paper. Whether it’s my to-do lists, calendar, or some doodling – I’m into it. The other thing I really like to do: color-coding. The pen that helps me do all of this is the classic BIC® 4-Color™. The pen – which I’m sure you’re familiar with (who isn’t?!) is my go-to. You’ve got green, blue, red and black ink. Perfect for correcting your papers, making lists, and best of all: doodling (just don’t tell any professors that).

With the 4 Inseparable Colors in 1 Pen, I can best express myself and best organize my thoughts in an aesthetically pleasing way. With the 4 different colors, I also get to express myself in different ways (because really, the kind of person who writes with a blue pen is very different than one who writes with a black pen) or even express my mood (I’m angry! I want to write in red!).

While I definitely prefer a black color pen — professional and clean — I do find myself going for red often, as it’s the ultimate corrector and perfect for editing a paper. It makes me feel like I can be harder on myself when I correct with a red pen. As long as it’s me putting the red on my papers, and not a professor, I’m ok.

Nina Nesbitt Talks Ed Sheeran, Touring and Peroxide

5/21/2014

Her Campus got the chance to sit down with singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt who gave us a peek into her exciting life on the road and in the studio!

HC: Tell us about a normal day for Nina.

Nina Nesbitt: There’s not really a typical day, not at the moment anyway.

HC: Are you busy promoting your new album?

NN: You would expect I would be promoting my new album Peroxide all the time, but it’s straight back into the studio AND promotion at the same time. It doesn’t go in one routine; it’s all just lots of different stuff, which is good! I'd get bored otherwise!

HC: Do you prefer one or the other – touring or recording?

NN: I like touring and recording a lot – when I’m touring though, I want to be recording. And when I’m recording, I want to be touring! Touring is probably my favorite though, because it’s like being on holiday and getting to play shows.

HC: Really? Like a vacation?

NN: You get to see the world, and the fans, and it’s exciting. It’s a good laugh as well! When you’re recording you are kind of shut off, and you forget that there are people out there listening to your music. Then you put it out, and you hear people singing it back to you, so it’s pretty cool. And then on tour you see what songs people relate to best, which is quite interesting.

HC: Sounds like you prefer touring.

NN: I guess…but also, I’m itching to get back in the studio and make new music. But touring…it can be exhausting, but after the third day your body gets used to it, and it becomes normal. It is so much fun!

Hot Chelle Rae Debuts "Don't Say Goodnight" Video

5/8/2014

A few months ago, the guys of Hot Chelle Rae chatted with Her Campus about everything from tips for single girls to the most romantic things they've ever done. At the time, the guys — Nash Overstreet and brothers Ryan and Jamie Follesé — had just released their new song, "Don't Say Goodnight."

Today they're sharing the brand new video with HC, just in time for the ultimate in college don't say goodnight moments: graduation. So turn it up and do like the boys tell you and "Don't Say Goodnight" as you enjoy your last few days of school (or, if you're lucky enough, just the last few days of this semester).
