5 Summer Beauty Essentials That Your Body Will Thank You For So You Can ACTUALLY Say, 'I Woke Up Like This'

When the summer heat starts rolling in, a lot of great things start to happen.

Beach days, warm nights by a bonfire, random trips to get ice cream, and vacations all suddenly become part of daily routine. And what better way to compliment these memorable days than a beauty routine that won't leave you feeling heavy, dry and fighting the elements?

Aussie 3 Min Miracle

This Australian brand has made waves much larger than the ones cascading down your shoulders. Aussie's three minute miracle deep conditioner has been a go-to for me lately and I apply it early on when I start my shower so that by the time I'm finished, my locks are so much softer and healthier. This product has totally changed my hair care routine and has completely replaced my regular conditioner.

MAC Teddy Eyeliner

I have to admit, the reason why I gravitated toward this eyeliner is because American Royalty Meghan Markle has been known to don this product, making her brown eyes pop even more than they already do. I love the gold in this brown shade and it fits perfectly into my everyday makeup routine. Honestly, I don't even bother with black eyeliner anymore.

Maybelline Dream BB Cream Fresh

Oh dear, this product is something else. I've only tried the one with pomegranate extract, but it's already been my summer makeup game changer. It's light, natural, and dewy without being overly shiny. I pair it up with some translucent powder, focusing especially on my T-zone, and I'm good to go.

Wet N Wild Coloricon Bronzer

I never gave too much thought to my bronzer, and I just went along with what was often recommended to me. I have to say that once I decided to check out Wet n Wild's section in my local CVS, and search for a more natural-looking bronzer that would help me achieve that summertime glow, I don't think I'll ever go back. It's inexpensive and a beautiful shade that is super complimentary. 10/10 would recommend.

Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick

The thing about summertime is that matte lipsticks don't usually cut it. I realized that the darker, more dry shades that I so often used during the colder months were only making my everyday makeup look seem out of place, and when I came across this product, I knew it would be an instant staple of mine. I have it in the shade "papaya" and with the moisture that comes along with this great smelling and pretty shade, I will definitely be buying more.

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.

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.
