The 5 Best Chapsticks To Use This Winter

Hot chocolate, fuzzy socks, soft blankets, scarfs.... and chapped lips-- Winter has arrived!!! Having super dry lips all of the time is the not so fun part of the coldest months to come. Every year, I struggle to try to find the perfect chapstick that will actually work. Certain chapstick brands pride themselves in different areas of expertise whether it be hydration, moisture, or the highest SPF. Here are five chapsticks that include all those and combine it with their recipe, making the perfect lip balm for this holiday season:

1. Baby Lips by Maybelline

This gives your lips renewal and continuous moisture for 8 hours!! It also has SPF 20 so it keeps you protected at the beach. After a week of using it, you’ll have baby-smooth lips. Glow balm is a new type of baby-lips and it reacts with your pH and reveals the perfect shade of pink, which is SO cool.

2. Carmex Original

This lip balm creates a special long-lasting barrier to help heal and soothe lips. It also has camphor, menthol, and cocoa butter to help cool and moisturize. Like most brands these days, it has an SPF of 15 to keep your lips from being harmed by the sun.

3. Clinique Superbalm

This odorless, colorless, lip balm will heal your lips in just about an hour!! The slightly thicker consistency is beneficial for all-day hydration, lasting a long time before you would need to re-apply. It’s a little on the pricey side BUT lasts awhile-- so, it’s totally worth it.

4. Blistex

This company has been around for over 50 years! Fun fact, it was founded in 1947. So, you know that their stuff MUST be good. As soon as it's applied, it instantly makes your lips feel better and soothed-- unlike other things like, Vaseline. It comes in a variety of flavors but the medicated is the most recommended and the fastest acting when lips are in need of nourishment.

5. Hemp Lip Conditioner

This lip balm is unique because it is made with Hemp Seed Oil. This oil has an unusually high concentration of fatty acids. This greatly helps repair the skin and keeps it smooth. Hemp brand is found to work the best in the elements-- rain, snow, and sun! It gives off that all-natural, herbal, aroma too. It is also perfect for wearing under or over lipstick to keep your lips full of moisture-- especially matte!

Next time you're due for a new chapstick, consider trying one of these brands out-- there is a lip balm for everyone. You might be presently surprised just how big of a difference it can make. Your lips will be thanking you!!!

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.
