5 Beauty Essentials You Need Right Now

We're always willing to spend a few bucks on a couple extra beauty essentials- right?

5 Beauty Essentials You Need Right Now

These are the ones that you won't regret buying!

1. Glossier Lash Slick


What's a list of beauty essentials without a Glossier mention? I'm sure you've heard this before, but the Glossier Lash Slick is the only everyday mascara you need. It makes you look like you're not trying too hard with your makeup, in the best way possible. I wouldn't recommend for a bolder lash look, however, for the purpose of Lash Slick is for everyday wear, for sure.

2. Milk Makeup Cooling Water


If you don't have any products from Milk Makeup yet, it's time you change that. One of the best decisions I ever made was to purchase their Cooling Water, which probably sounds like nothing you've ever heard of. It's literally a roll-up stick (kind of like deodorant) that keeps cold somehow 24/7. The aim of Cooling Water is to depuff any area of your face that looks tired/puffy, but it works as an amazing primer (which I use it for any time I put on makeup). The cooling sensation even helps with headaches!

3. Trader Joe's Rose Water Facial Toner


I'm sure you've heard of the famous Mario Badescu's Rosewater Spray , and this Trader Joe's version is just like this one. Either works beautifully, but you're probably at your local Trader Joe's every week or so, making it even easier to pick up a bottle (rather than heading to Urban Outfitters or ordering the MB version online). Use a spritz to keep your makeup in place or just to keep your skin hydrated and fresh. I live by this stuff.

4. Glossier Balm Dot Com


Another cult-favorite Glossier product you've probably already heard all about. What everyone is saying about Balm Dot Calm is true, and yes, you do need it too. This lip balm leaves your lips feeling ultra-moisturized and works fabulously as a lip gloss (the way I use it most) without feeling too sticky. Not to mention there's eight flavors to choose from; my favorite is coconut!

5. Too Faced Peach Blur Finishing Powder


Looking for a new powder that will leave your face looking smooth and dewey? Look no further- Too Faced's Peach Blur Finishing Powder is here to solve all of your problems. I've used this for years and swear by it now. After concealer, my normal loose powder, and highlighter (and sometimes blush) I pat this baby on everywhere using a brush like this one and voilà! Smooth and dewey finish! And the powder is only 30 bucks!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
