Exam: Stay Stylish Care Package

Going away to college is a very exciting time. But between all the excitements, comes hard times such as a new town, new friends and obviously classes. As much as a college student may be pulling away from their parents and friends, they still really need support. I know I did and after a tough day at class, there is nothing better than going home to your dorm room to find a slip of paper in your mailbox stating you have a package. What could it be? Who is it from? Yay! I know I was excited when I got my first package from my friend back home. 

So amidst the hustle and bustle of college midterms and cram sessions, muster up the energy to create a care package. There is a certain level of self-satisfaction when you create one of these. Reason? Because you are providing someone with things that will brighten their day or simply with things that they aren’t, for whatever reason, providing for themselves. So as a friend, you come to the rescue! Providing them with the essentials to get through the day! You know your best friend inside and out. So a care package is a great way to show you care about them. This will surely put a smile on their face. Also a themed care package is even better such as an ‘Exam: Stay Stylish’’ pack.Let your creativity flow! Here a few ideas you can include:

Muse Retouched: Issue 3

This just in! Muse Magazine has officially launched their third issue entitled Retouched.

"The brainchild of three artistically enthusiastic students at Queen's University, Muse Magazine is simply a publication that thrives off the Fashion, Arts, Entertainment and Lifestyle that electrify the campus it resides in. Muse is a tribute to the innovative, the unique, the fashion forward and the stylistically creative - it is a nod of gratitude to those who break the mold, and expose beauty in places we may glance over in our daily student adventure. This is our "hats off" to you; the inspirational reader." - Muse Magazine

Also I joined the Muse team as Fashion Contributor this semester and wrote my first article titled 'Embracing a New Trend.' Check it out on page 34!

Dormify Style Advisor

So today I got an email stating that I was chosen as the featured style advisor of the week. This simply made my day and felt like sharing it with you as well as telling you what Dormify is all about!

Three words describe Dormify and it’s creators: 


‘It’s philosophy, blog and products are all meant to spark your imagination. After all, you only have four years of college. You shouldn’t settle for less than the best when it comes to discovering your style or designing your space. Dormify aims to inspire college students to explore and embrace their style both inside and outside their dorm rooms. From clothes and accessories, to school supplies and shower curtains—they want to empower students to explore their own design tastes and express it throughout all aspects of their lives.’

So as a style advisor, you act as style consultant to college friends who need a little help in the interior designing department and expose them to fun, funky and functional design and help them transform their dorms/rooms into modern, convenient and gorgeous homes.

Anyone can turn a boring white room into a comfortable home away from home that has style and personality. They’ve made it all very easy —creating pieces that complement and coordinate with one another. Even if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, Dormify can help you style your space.


Check them out at dormify.com and don't miss their Gift It Up Campaign for ideas for the holidays!

Olivia represents the sheer essence of elegance and beauty. Her style is impecable yet simple and refined. This truly relates to her great appreciation for fine clothes which translates quite effortlessly to her stunning ensembles and her ability to mix and match high end and lower end fashion together.

Life of a Hermit

Apparently this semester, I have changed as a person. Good or bad you ask? I hope in a good way. I have become quite the little hermit dedicating most of my hours to schoolwork, writing, and projects. This being said, I have come to realize who my true friends are. Friends that don’t care that I don’t go out anymore. Friends that let me laugh until I can hardly breath. Friends that will drop anything and everything if I need help with something. Obviously, working a lot comes with its downsides. Up until now, I have resorted to living on caffeine, little sleep and a small number of friends. Being so focused on simply getting through the day, has definitely made me lose perspective on the bigger picture. 

My Girls at ECE Wine & Cheese.
Couldn't have made it without all of you!

With the occasional regrets and breakdowns as well as a slew of emotions, I am dedicated to completing my degree. While I appear calm and relaxed most of the time, I am stressed and sometimes do not know if I can get through the day or even the next minute. So I will leave it at that and let you in on the projects I am currently working on. Enjoy!

Fourth Year Design Project 
Speech Synthesis through Gesture Recognition
A system that will be used by an individual with limited mobility that translates blink gestures to speech through an adaptive graphic user interface. A small vocabulary of about 150 words that will be reliably implemented by recognizing successive blinks gestures with the left or right eye thus enabling implementation of a useful vocabulary. The prototype developed will be non-invasive, rapid, easy to use, accurate, and allow for ready expansion. This project entails the use of Ardunio and Java implementation.  

Distributed System Project
Design and Implementation of a Chat System
Design and implement a collaborative chat system for textual conversation between multiple (50) participants communicating with each other. This will be done by creating a client-server application using remote procedure call. The system will have participants register to a server before they can send any messages to the current users. 

Biomaterial Presentation 
A Mechanical Engineering presentation that looks and discusses the choice and impact  of Biomaterials in Dental Implants.

Now to get all this done in the next four weeks! Wish me luck!

Bedside Manners

Living off campus is quite the exciting experience, you get to live with some amazing people and it allows you to decorate a whole new room from scratch. When I took on the challenge to decorate my room away from home, I choose my bed to be the main focal point. I understand that as students we all have certain budgets that we would like to stick too, however don’t worry because finding unique pieces for your room is quite simple and easy, if you just put some effort and time into it. With sites like Dormify and stores such as Ikea or Target, finding fun and exciting pieces is a fun. Pieces such as cushions, table lamps, art, dyi headboards etc. Here a few examples of wonderful rooms:


Going on, when figuring out  the basics of decorating a room, one must choose a colour scheme and a focus of attention, whether it is your bed, headboard, wall art or a simple mural in your room. Everyone has a creative side, so hope this inspires you and remember have fun. Enjoy!
