Lifesavers: My Favorite Study Sites

So funnily enough, this blog's first "real" post is not about makeup, nor fashion...No, it's about studying. Today I want to share with you some of my favorite study tools, resources, and motivators that have helped me out over the years.

1. Quizlet
Whenever I have to memorize vocabulary terms, people, or any type of list, I turn to Quizlet. This online flashcard site is fantastic- you can quiz yourself, play study games, take a test, and print out your virtual flashcards for homeroom cramming. You can even share the link with classmates, or study from other people's sets. It's a lifesaver!

2. NoodleTools
NoodleTools is, in my humble opinion, the best online citation generator. It organizes and saves all of your citations, and you can even link your paper or project to it so everything is in one place. It offers MLA, APA, and Chicago style citations, so you can accommodate any picky teacher. NoodleTools also offers help with parenthetical citations, and it's really easy to use. The only downside is that your school has to have an account there in order for you to use it. Check with your school or university library; chances are they can give you the username and password you need.

Well hello there!

     Welcome to Textbook Chic! I've been wanting to do this for quite a while now. This blog will mostly be centered around cruelty-free beauty and fashion, with a few random, nerdy bits and bobs thrown in. In the past, I've had a beauty-based YouTube channel, EverythingsPeachy514. It's been inactive for a few months, but I may start making videos again as a supplement to my blog. Here you can expect to find tutorials, reviews, informative posts, and even some grammar here and there. Sounds fun, right? ;) I can't promise for posts to be frequent, or on a regular schedule- I will do as much as I am able to. Anyway, I hope you'll stick around. I'm full of ideas and can't wait to get started!
