From time to time, the Her Hacks team likes to get out of the hack mines, get some sunshine and have a couple of margaritas (frozen, of course) while enjoying a warm breeze. And sometimes they are pulled out of the mines, put in a library and told to find some hidden gem authors. Both...
Being a parent is about three parts blood, sweat and tears mixed with three parts MacGyver and a dash of drill instructor. In other words, it’s a hard job. But it’s one for which the Her Hacks team is dedicated to helping you be prepared. For our parents’ generation, being prepared often took the form...
In the era of social media, online dating and Netflix and chill there are few pleasures as tactile and satisfying as entertaining. Whether it’s a couple of friends and a bottle of wine or a couple dozen and a homemade antipasto bar, there is a world of face-to-face fun out there just waiting to get...

For an undergraduate student, the Christmas season can be daunting. We are slammed with papers, presentations and final exams. Immediately after school ends, the Christmas season is upon us and we worry about finding gifts for friends and family while trying to stay on a budget.

Ah, school days. Whether you’re heading in for that first year or a returning veteran of the be-lockered hallways, the return to school is an exciting, sometimes stressful time. If there’s one thing that’s especially difficult to get back into the swing of, it’s studying. Good study habits are the work of an entire academic...

The Her Hacks team made a resolution this year to get back down to basics.
