Queen EXTRA? Not Today

(Giphy.com)

We all have that one friend who does the absolute most! We love them to death but sometimes their personality is EXTRA. You ever find yourself rolling your eyes whenever they’re around? Yeah, it’s time to check this diva.

Remain Unbothered -When your friend is having a diva moment don’t exhaust your energy by feeding into it. They’re probably telling you a story with lots of embellishments in order to get more attention.

No More Drama -We love hanging out a spilling tea with friends. However, we are going to have to cut this friend off from tea spillage. Drama only adds to our diva friend’s over the top personality. This is a fire you don’t want to add fuel to.

Keep Calm and Carry On –Everyone has their issues where they need a friend to vent to. When your diva friend contacts you for support, make sure you remain calm. No need to add in any “Oh no she didn’t” and “Girl! Are you serious?!”. Just give her the advice she’s looking for.

Small Doses- You may need to cut back on some of the time you spend with her all together. It’s easier to handle personalities like that in small doses. You care for her the same, but you do so from a distance.

Introvert’s Guide To College!

Going off to college to be around unfamiliar faces can be nerve racking. Doing it as an introvert can seem impossible. But don’t fret because even the most introverted person can make a friend with these 3 tips below!

Love For The Clubs! Joining clubs is the easiest way to make new friends during your first semester on campus. You’ll be spending a good amount of time around people with the same interests as you while working together to achieve a common goal

Extra Study Sessions! When there is a huge exam coming up, professors will usually have the teaching assistant lead an extra study session. Go! Even if you feel confident about all the material, a quick review never hurts. Plus, you’ll get a chance to mingle in a smaller setting with other people from your major.

Come + Talk To Me! – If you’re still super nervous, it’s okay. Let people come to you first. Quick tip: Wear something eye-catching like a dope pair of sneakers so people will be inclined to approach you and strike up a conversation about them!

So don’t fret; you’re not the only one!

Style Diary x Maya!

Scroll through the style diary of D.C. college blogger, Maya Fleming:

Style is showing who you are with out having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
I’m not really into trends (and I can’t really keep up). With that being said, I love comfortable style, so I’ve really been feeling athleisure trends. Matching sweat sets (cropped crewnecks are my favorite) and sneakers are two trends that I can’t get enough of. I’m also really excited about nostalgic fashion and how everyone is into 80’s and 90’s brands and logos. It gives me a reason to go thrift hunting!

If you had 30 seconds to grab your 3 favorite style pieces, what would they be?
If I only had 30 seconds, I would most definitely grab my Levi’s denim jacket, my favorite black ankle booties, and my camel beret.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
My style changes with my mood, so I definitely have more than one icon. Right now, one of my icons is Monica Brown because I love how she manages to stay on top of trends and hot brands without overdoing it and losing herself. Zendaya is also a huge inspiration because I love how laid-back her at-home style is while her red carpet style is all about ground breaking styles and amazing silhouettes. Her chocolate August Getty dress at the MTV awards was EVERYTHING!

Getting ready in the morning can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to look if you’re in a rush?
When I’m in a time crunch, I almost always gravitate towards a striped top (I have way too many), a pair of dark jeans, booties, and my denim jacket. It’s a classic look that works for most settings.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
My number one style rule is to stay true to yourself. If you aren’t feeling a look or trend, it will show, and the look will still bomb no matter how amazing the pieces are. Be comfortable in what you’re wearing, and let yourself shine through. Style is meant to be a means of expression, so tell us who you are!

What city do you live in?
I am from Kansas City.

Beauty is all about being comfortable in your own skin + having fun! What are 2 beauty trends you’re loving this year?
2018 has been a year full of new and super exciting trends! The first beauty trend that I’m absolutely loving is the all inclusive foundation lines that are coming out. It’s very important that big makeup companies help women and men of all skin colors feel beautiful and I love that a lot of them are including lighter and darker shades. The second trend that I am really into is the new lip tints! Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE a cute lip color.

If you had only 15 seconds to grab 3 beauty products, what would they be?
If I had 15 seconds to grab 3 makeup products, I’d grab my eyebrow pomade, concealer, and my lip favorite pink gloss of course!

Beauty inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate beauty icon + why?
I absolutely love Aaliyah Jay. She is my inspiration and I hope to be just like her one day.

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s one beauty must-have that lives in your bag?
I ALWAYS keep lip gloss with me no matter what. It’s either a shimmery one or one with a pink tint.

What’s your number 1 beauty rule?
My #1 beauty rule is “Your face, your rules!” Your makeup is a reflection of how you feel about yourself. Express yourself however YOU want & stay fabulous :)!
