10 Things Every Girl Should Take On Spring Break

Midterms are almost over and the finish line is so close. Don’t give up just yet! If you need a small study break, here are just a couple of things that every girl should put on her packing list for spring break. Am I the only one that plans my packing list by the day including exactly what I’ll plan to where? I don’t think so! Here is a spring break packing guide for all the gals!

1. Sunscreen.

This is a no brainer. I know we all want to look like copper pennies by the end of our trips, but seriously the sun’s rays are not a joke. We think we’re invincible. The aloe in my fridge says otherwise. Pack your sunscreen ladies!

2. Flip Flops.

If you’re going somewhere warm, this is a necessity. You will be walking around in flip-flops for most likely 90% of your trip. My advice? Find a comfortable pair and place them in your suitcase first and foremost!

3. Hat.

Ladies, our scalps are delicate, too. Pack a fun sun hat, or even a hat with your favorite sport’s team logo on the front. Shield that scalp in style!

4. Lotion.

Again, the sun’s rays are not a joke. It is so important to moisturize. Of course, your sunscreen will brag about several moisturizers it has in it. My advice? Pack your favorite scent or scentless lotion and glow all throughout your trip!

5. Your favorite book.

If you’re a bookworm like me, this is an absolute necessity. If reading isn’t your thing, take your headphones and relax. Whatever puts your mind at ease pack it! A week of no textbooks calls for reading your favorite things regardless of what it may be.

6. Beach bag.

If you’re going somewhere warm, this is a must! It doesn’t have to be a designer brand (There is sand everywhere, but you know this already). Beach bags are designed to be filled with sun tan lotion, towels, and the inevitable, sand. Put this on your spring break packing list or I promise you will wish you had.

7. Ziploc bag for swimsuits.

This might seem a bit over the top, but it makes a ton of sense. You probably won’t want your salty bathing suits from the beach touching your evening wear in your suitcase on the ride home.

8. Dry Shampoo.

I use this all the time. It is a known fact that washing your hair over and over again can strip it of its natural oils, yet you have Google for this information. Dry shampoo is perfect for spring break. You won’t have to worry about washing and styling your hair. Throw some dry shampoo in it and let it bring on the beach curls! Natural oils are a great thing, ladies.

9. Aloe.

I cannot say this enough. Skin care is critical! You most likely haven’t been exposed to the sun in a while due to being cooped up in the library studying for those midterms. Burns are bound to happen. A piece of advice? Stick it in the fridge for a few minutes and apply it after a long day in the sun. You can thank me later!

10. Cover up.

Resorts are big on this. It was so cute when you were four to run around in the lobby in your bathing suit. Now that you’ve grown into an adult (If you would call me that), it is not necessarily as cute anymore. Pack an oversized t-shirt or tank top and slip it on before you hit the pool. Yes, some rules were meant to be broken, yet breaking this one is, well, tacky.

These ten things are just a few necessities to think about when packing for your spring break trip. I should also mention: pack awareness. The world is a crazy place. Be safe, be smart, and have a blast!

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
