Beauty Essentials for the Those on the Go

As a busy college student, I’m constantly managing my time efficiently so that I always have time for everything I need to do that day. Sometimes things like putting on makeup can seem like a luxury especially if you have a morning class, but I found that these beauty products are not just quick to put on, but worth it for an everyday look that will last all day!

Optional beginning: Though I understand that many probably don’t have time for this, but if you do I highly recommend cleansing and washing your face prior to any makeup application!

Step 1: Prime: I’ve been using the Porefessional Face primer from Benefit cosmetics and you would not believe the difference this makes in the way your face looks after foundation/bb cream application. Just a dot or two on each cheek goes a long way!

Step 2: BB Cream from Smashbox. At $39 it’s not the most inexpensive product ever, but it’s well worth it if you don’t want thick foundation but neither do you want a watery BB Cream. It's full coverage but it applies and feels like a face lotion. I’ve used this for years and I swear that it is worth every dollar.

Step 3: Concealer: While still experimenting somewhat with concealers I have not been disappointed yet with the buys I have made. This month I’m trying the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer whose spongetip makes application easy and quick especially for those days when you're running late and need to cover those panda eyes.

Step 4: Though I swear up and down that Stila is one of the best liquid eyeliners to exist, the Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining pencil has been given the same hype I give Stila. Apply it in any way you’d like!

Step 5: Lastly, is some sunscreen and a setting spray! UV protection is one of the most important steps in step care and incorporating this step just before you go outside is one of the best ways to make sure that you're getting proper protection from those harmful UV rays.

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.
