Your skin and your wallet with thank you.


Everyone has their own beauty goals. Some people want long lashes or tan skin or full lips...

While we have our unique looks and glam styles, the truth is no matter who you are everyone wants the same thing.

Good. Skin.

Like really good skin.

The kind of skin that you can wear those I-just-woke-up-and-looked-this-good makeup products and not have the strong need to wear the fullest of full coverage foundations even if you're just going to the grocery store. Believe it or not, perfect skin is not impossible and you don't have to spend $50-$100 per product to achieve your skin goals. In fact, these skin care products you can pick up TODAY at your local drug store without breaking a sweat. Or spending a paycheck.

1. Yes to Carrots: Vitamin Enriched Kale Paper Mask

If your skin is looking a little dull and needs a vitamin kick to get some life back into it, Yes to Carrots vitamin-enriched kale paper mask is the ultimate pick me up. It sits easily on the skin, doesn't feel greasy and leaves you feeling fresh.

2. Neutrogena: Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit

We all get acne, but harsh cleansers can be harsh on your skin and actually make things worse. Neutrogena's pink grapefruit collection is the ultimate weapon to help you fight acne. My favorite product is the acne wash. It's lightweight, soft on skin, but super effective!

3. Bioré: Deep Cleansing Pore Strips

Pore strips have been all the rage recently, but nobody does it as well as Bioré. While Bioré has a few different types of pore strips, the good old fashion deep cleansing has the best results. You can even see the blackheads once you rip it off. Sounds gross, but it's actually really satisfying.

4. Burt's Bees: Rejuvenating Eye Masks

Who knew Burt's Bees made more than chapstick! Sometimes we need a bit of an under eye pick me up. Burt's Bees rejuvenating eye masks help give a little extra life to the place that can show off our most tired days.

5. Formula 10.0.6: Picture Perfect Day


A daily moisturizer with SPF 15 AND Vitamin C? Can you ask for anything better than that? Formula 10.0.6 has been a hot brand with their masks recently, but a vitamin C moisturizer with sunscreen is exactly what your skin needs to wake up with. Plus, who doesn't love guava?

6. Clean and Clear: Oil Absorbing Sheets

As the sun gets hotter, the skin gets oiler. Clean and Clear's oil absorbing sheets are the perfect thing to keep in your purse, bag, or bedside drawer. Blot that shine away and get back to feeling fresh again.

Seven Tasty Coffee Drinks Without The Coffee Taste

I'm pretty sure my body is 90% coffee and soon, yours will be too.

Though I don’t understand it, there are a lot of people who don’t like coffee. Many people still want to have the coffee to wake them up, learn to like coffee, or want to hop on the bandwagon of enjoying a coffee treat from Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts, or Wawa (the overall best). So, here’s a list of seven drinks that include coffee, but don’t taste like it, to help you transition from a non-coffee drinker to an active one.

1. Coolattas from Dunkin Donuts

A Coolatta is basically a frozen flavored drink. Most of them contain coffee, so getting that boost of caffeine without the coffee taste is easy with this treat. It comes in caramel, vanilla bean, mocha, Oreo, and more.

2. Any kind of Mocha Coffee (or caffe mocha)

A mocha coffee tastes like subtly coffee flavored hot chocolate. One of my favorite mocha drinks around the holidays is a peppermint mocha, because it tastes like a chocolate dipped candy cane, which is perfect to get anyone (even a Jewish girl like me) into the Christmas spirit. If you like hot chocolate, a mocha is a good way to transition into drinking regular coffee.

3. Vanilla Latte

A vanilla latte is one of my personal favorites. They can come hot or iced, and though they contain a good amount of coffee, it tastes like you dipped a sugar cookie into coffee.

4. Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha

After going to Starbucks with a friend, she forced me to try this when she ordered it, and it was fabulous. She described it to me as a drink for people who don’t like rich chocolate. It’s a really creamy drink that tastes kind of like white hot chocolate.

5.Starbucks Frappuccino

Don’t even get me started on Frapps. The amount of flavors they have is amazing, and it’s basically one of the best beverages ever. My favorite is the double chocolate chip, because you get a rich chocolate flavor with crunchy chocolate chips inside. SO good. They also have caramel, vanilla, strawberry, cinnamon, green tea, and pumpkin spice and toasted graham cracker during the fall season (just to list a few).

6. Chai Latte

A chai latte tastes like tea with milk, infused with spices. It is definitely something people either love or hate, but if you like that spiced flavor, I would recommend it.

7. Caramel Macchiato

I have never tried one of these, but people LOVE them (not to mention the drink is beautiful). In simple terms, it is steamed milk topped with foam, topped with espresso to create a luscious, caramel, layered coffee drink.

So to those crazy people out there who don't enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning, or a mid-day iced coffee in the summer, try these drinks and soon you'll wake up craving a cup of coffee like me.

Top 5 Hidden Gems In Clemson, SC

What are you missing out on in this beautiful South Carolina college town?


Clemson, South Carolina. Home to the Clemson Tigers, one of the happiest universities in the nation and full of southern hospitality. I'm sure if you live in or near Clemson you know all the main spots to hang, or just grab a bite to eat. Who doesn't know Red Bowl, Spill the Beans or Bowman Field? Maybe you need a new spot, somewhere to quench your thirst for adventure, or maybe you're just tired of the same old same old. Either way, you're going to fall in love with these ten hidden gems, just as I have.

1. Yolk Asian Kitchen

Whether you're coming to Yolk for the made in house ginger ale, the stone rice bowls, or the kimchi tater tots; you'll always leave satisfied.

Located across from Mellow Mushroom (because you surely know where that is), this small restaurant has a very special place in my heart. I mean, 5 minutes from campus, good prices, and vegetarian options? What more can be said?

2. Todaro Pizza

Todaro Pizza. This small pizza shop that has the right amount of crust, to sauce, to greasiness and cheesiness. Everything aligns perfectly on these large slices of heaven. Not to mention, dollar slice nights every Wednesday from 6:00-11:00 p.m.

3. All In Coffee Shop

This small (but not really so small, its got amazingly spacious seating inside) cafe features pastries like your grandma would make, a bountiful selection of coffees and bubble tea offered every Wednesdays. This place is home to many of my study sessions, friendly conversations, and my large consumption of almond milk caramel lattes.

4. The Barnes Center

Now, I know this one may not be very hidden to those students who live on campus (particularly the high-rises) but, some may not know about the weekend events hosted here (and at least this one isn't completely food related). Whether it's game nights, DIY sessions, or cupcake wars: this spot on Clemson's Campus is a smorgasbord for bored college students.

5. Brackett Hall

Now, of course, if you're a student this building is not much of a secret. Many of us have had classes, exams or walked past this building many times. Though this building is underrated in the fact that in the evening it's one of the quietest places to study, with rows of tables and computers lining the bottom floor. (It even has a secret lounge for geology majors!)

I know these spots are great places to hang out with my friends and as a freshman, they've almost become little spots of home to me. Hopefully, these small little gems in this college town will quench your adventurous thirst and bring some spice to your life!
