Well, you no longer have to worry about walking aimlessly around the mall. Simply stick to these five places from start to finish, and you'll be able to have your dream shopping spree in no time.

1. Aerie 

Aerie by AE

I was recently in Aerie and it was amazing. Their clothes are all so soft and perfect for the new chilly weather. Whether you need to stock up on leggings or tall knit socks, Aerie has plenty of great options without being overwhelming. One piece that stood out the me was the long sleeve fleece dress which came in a variety of nice muted colors and would be perfect with leggings and boots. Another favorite that caught my eye were the Aerie twill overalls. They're comfy and slouchy and could be paired with a big sweater, a tight turtle neck, or even a delicate button up to dress them up. Aerie is just a great place to start your shopping trip because you can really lock down some staple pieces to help guide you on the rest of your shopping trip.

2. H&M


H&M is a great place to stop into to get some more unique pieces for fall as well as some more tailored looks. They have a lot of a great pieces for layering such as their lightweight down jacket, which comes in three different colors and is perfect outerwear for these early fall days. They also just released their studio line which features this denim shirt in natural white. It has crisp clean lines and would flatter many different body shapes as well as be a very versatile piece in any wardrobe. Also you can't not look at their shoes, like these chunky ankle boots which are made in a black suede and would go with so many outfits this fall.

3. Bath and Body Works

Bath and Body Works

Bath and Body Works needs no introduction. Their fall line of candles, shower products, and scents are all amazing. They have everything pumpkin, apple and woodsy. My favorite product of theirs are their three wick candles. They have fall scents that are perfect for every room in your house. I love burning pumpkin pecan waffles in the kitchen to make it smell like you always have something delicious cooking. Their scent leaves is so nice to light before bedtime, and it has notes of red apple and warm clove spice. If you can't light candles in your dorm, try out their shower gels! A favorite of mine is marshmallow pumpkin latte. It's a very sweet scent but leaves your whole bathroom smelling delicious.

4. Target


College girls love Target, and it isn't hard to see why. Target has recently brought out their Fall Harvest collection with beautiful home pieces that are suitable for any sized spaced. For example this Happy Fall lit wooden sign would be perfect hanging on the back of a door or as an accent piece in your kitchen. Another piece that really stood out to me as something that would get a lot of use is this Happy Harvest serving tray, which you could use for hosting or leave on a coffee table as the base to a center piece. Overall Target really has some of the best home pieces for really reasonable pricing,

5. Lush


While Lush doesn't have specific fall products, they are always bringing out new products. Lush has created a new line of Naked products that are packaging free. So if you're trying to go into this school year a little more waste friendly then you should definitely check them out. Their newest shampoo bar, the #BeCrueltyFree bar features clove bud oil, which is sure to give you that autumnal scent you're craving. Another great product are their bath bombs.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
