6 Fashion / Beauty Must Haves For Back To School

Back to school means back to fashion. Here are six basics to get your wardrobe excited to be back in the classroom.

1. New Jeans

The reason why this up first on my list is because jeans can be very versatile. From nice tops to T-shirts, jeans can fit into any wardrobe mood. Also, chances are something about you inside or out has probably changed over the summer; why not invest in a pair of pants to match?

2. Comfy Shoes

Who doesn't love an excuse to buy a new pair of shoes?! For those of us in college, we get around to campus a lot, so why not accessorize with something that won't make your feet hurt? My personal favorite shoes are my Toms (I have 4 pairs), but any shoe that is cushy and flat is probably a good thing to start off the new school year with. A shoe with a fun and versatile print will give you something to look forward to when you absolutely don't want to get up and go to your 8 AM.

3.Dress Clothes (Nothing too fancy)

With school comes presentations and other countless reasons to have to dress up. While participating in these activities can be painfully stressful, dressing for them doesn't have to be. Choosing a T-shirt dress or maxi skirt can be a great way to look nice while feeling like you're wearing sweatpants. Also, you won't sweat much if you get nervous. Even choose a pretty (but not too dramatic) color to help you grab the attention of your audience.

4. Comfy Sweatshirt or Jacket

When you are back in the classroom, things can get a little chilly. Some professors like to keep their classrooms freezing, and you need to be prepared. Plus, jackets are good way to look cute while being lazy at the same time. Not to mention, by the time September rolls around, things aren't getting any warmer.

5. Natural / Everyday Eyeshadow Palette

As someone who doesn't frequently get adventurous with beauty routines but still loves makeup, I consider this an essential. Neutrals take the least amount of expertise and effort, so anybody can learn to use them. Natural looks are great for enhancing your natural beauty or helping yourself look like you got more than five hours of sleep. My favorite is the Too Faced Natural Matte palette.

6. Nude Lipsticks

Nude is my favorite lipstick color family for three main reasons. First, they look the most natural, hence "nudes." In addition, they are guaranteed to match just about any outfit. This may be silly, but one of the best things about this color family is that it's less noticeable when things get messy.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
