What’s in your purse? I’m not talking about the obvious cell phone, wallet, and keys. I’m talking about those essential items that we, as females, depend on to look and feel our best. Here are some items that every girl should consider having:
1. Compact mirror - Ever walked around with smeared eyeliner or food stuck in your teeth all day? And no one said anything about it and you got weird looks all day? Prevent embarrassing situations like this by checking for mishaps with a compact mirror.
2. Mints/Gum - No one wants to be able to guess what you had for lunch by smelling your breath. Keep fresh by chewing a piece of gum or popping a mint in your mouth.
3. Blotting Paper - A long day can lead to an oily face. Prevent oil and shine by keeping a pack of blotting papers in your purse. It’s also the perfect solution to prevent glare in your pictures, if you’re planning to take any for those nights out.
4. Chapstick/Lip gloss - Not only are chapped lips unattractive, they hurt. Keep your lips looking and feeling incredibly soft with the help of chapstick. Also, tinted chapstick or lip gloss is a perfect way to play up your look with a few quick and easy sweeps.
5. Tampons/Pads - You never know when mother nature will call and surprise you.
6. Hand lotion - Prevent ashy hands by keeping a travel-sized hand lotion in your purse. Your hands will thank you!
7. Hand sanitizer - Opening doors, shaking hands, and don’t forget the ever-so-popular texting. You’re always using your hands, and there’s bacteria crawling everywhere. Use hand sanitizer to prevent the spread of germs.
Whether you are in need of cash or just want some extra cash on the side, here are six ways you can make money, fast!
1. Recycle! It’s 2012, the year that the world is supposedly going to “end.” If I were abeliever, I would have to say that global warming is probably one of the key conntributors to “the end of theworld.” In an effort to help this plausible catastrophic event, here’s a little suggestion that may delay the feared day: recycle. Not only is recycling good for the environment, it’s good for your wallet. Imagine all those water bottles you go through on a hot Riverside afternoon. Those beer cans after the party you threw last night? Don’t toss them! Collect all plastic, aluminum, and even glass bottles in a trash bag, and take them to recycle. You will be amazed at how much money you can make from trash, literally.
With midterms out of the way, and winter quarter more than halfway over, spring break is just around the corner. This means it’s time tuck away the worries of lectures, discussions, homework, and well...school in general, and look forward to the oh-so-satisfying feeling of what one student may call, seven days of sweet-sweet freedom. But before you shove last quarters text books to who-knows-where, and you really don’t care (so long as you never have to see them again) consider this: textbooks are a great way to make some extra cash!
