10 Things in my Study Abroad Closet (Or that I Wish were in my Closet)

Studying abroad and only being able to bring a very small portion of my wardrobe as taught me to really appreciate what I have in my closet, and what everyone needs to own. No matter where are live, these 10 items will sure become handy to you at one point in your life. Here are the 10 things everyone needs in their closet:

1. Leather Jacket

For the in between months, when it's too warm for a heavy jacket and too cold for nothing, a leather jacket is perfect. And not to mention that you will fit in with the rest of the world.

2. Expensive Sunglasses

The sun doesn't get any weaker in different parts of the world. A good pair of sunglasses will ensure safety for the eyes, as well as give your outfit that extra accessory that it needs to be complete.

3. Heavy Winter Coat

It is no doubt that when it is cold, it is cold. A heavy winter coat will keep you warm, and you will not regret it. This is not something to splurge on.

4. Durable Weekend BagFor those weekend trips, it is important to have a weekend bag that can fit what you need, as well as fitting the strict size requirements of international airline companies. You don’t want to be away for the weekend and have your bag break, after all.5. Reliable WatchTime is of the essence, especially when you have to use public transportation and maneuver around a city that you’ve never lived in before. Time is extra important and a good watch should never let you down.6. Sneakers

For when the feet get sore, which happens to everyone. We all need to give our feet a break at times, which is why a good pair of sneakers is important for everyone to own.

7. Scarves, Hats, Mittens

They fit both the practical needs as well as the fashion needs. They will keep you warm and dress up your outfit. It’s no joke, these are very important in other parts of the world. Never walk out of the house without them, or you will stick out like a sore thumb.

8. Black Jeans

For when you don’t want to wear blue jeans, but don’t want to wear dress pants. Black jeans can be dressed up or down, not to mention are a total fashion statement these days.

9. Sweatpants

For those early morning flights, it is important to have a good quality pair of sweatpants. Whether they be joggers or baggy, good quality ensures that they won’t rip when you have nothing else to wear and they will be able to withhold the washing machines.

10. Slippers

You never really appreciate how much comfort slippers give to the feet until you don't have them. When the floor is cold and creaky, slippers add some much needed cushion to your feet as well as the floor. Trust me, the neighbors below you will thank you.

If you're ever thinking of going abroad, be sure to take these items, and if you're not, it's okay. These are good to have in your closet, wherever in the world you live.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
