20 Things Every College Girl Needs, Because Life Is Hard Enough As It Is

Every girl will realize how important these 20 things are.


Every woman has a list of their every day essential products and routine schedule to keep them feeling their best. These are probably the No. 1 things that every girl needs just for the day.



You have to make sure you're keeping that skin nice and refreshed.

Face cleanser 


Cleaning out your pores will be a life saver and will help keep you acne free.

An all-in-one journal 


This is a great way to let out any feelings you may be holding in, or even to write stuff down so you don't forget. I have about 15 journals I use.



Smell good, feel good.

Face masks 


A face mask a week will do wonders for your face.

Good pillows 


The key to a good nights' sleep is a good pillow.

A better hairbrush 


A good brush equals healthier looking hair: less tangles, less frizz, less drama.

Clear lip gloss 


Just a little shimmer to catch the eye of someone special.

Flat iron 


Straight hair = chic hair, professional hair, fresh hair.

Moroccan hair oil 


Of course, when you flat iron your hair you need some oil to keep it healthy.



Some people prefer to wax, but, I, on the other hand, break out in hives. So, this means I pluck.

Face cleanser brush 


The oil from your fingers can be your skin's worst enemy. A brush for your face can save it.

Cute water bottle 


Water is your best friend and having a cute water bottle will make you want to drink more.

Scrunchies or hair ties 


Scrunchies are coming back and they are coming back fast. Plus, they are a lot healthier for your hair.

Good body wash 


A good smelling body wash will make you feel like a new woman.

Aloe vera 


Aloe Vera is a wonder plant and can help with pretty much anything.



Chewing gum helps lower stress, improves your memory, and keeps your breath smelling fresh.

Drugstore nails or polish 


Having your nails done always makes me feel good and like the H.B.I.C.

Clear polish 


Not only does clear polish make your nails look nice, but it also can help cheaper jewelry from turning your skin green or the color on the jewelry itself from changing.

Simple jewelry 


A little bit of jewelry can completely change an outfit in the best way. Even costume jewelry can spice up your wardrobe, and you won't break the bank!

There are plenty of other things every female needs, but these are probably the 20 most important. Nothing beats smelling good, feeling good, and looking good.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).
