It's that time of year again! The time where we spend countless hours in the library, living in sweats, eating endless amount of junk food, and never ever sleep. Yes that's right, finals week! Luckily for us at Her Campus Utah, Her Campus Nationals and our sponsors hooked us up with an amazing Finals Survival Kit so our finals week isn't so bad. We would like to thank Her Campus Nationals, Chipotle, LUNA bars, TRESemme, Cold-EEZE, Kettle Brand, CamelBak, Bayer's/The Timeline Project, chain & charcoal, baublebar, Aritzia, and Cosabella Underwear for spoiling us beyond belief! Take a look at all of these great gifts!

It can be hard coming up with fun date ideas with your significant other or crush that you have never done before. It is especially hard in the winter when it gets freezing and all you want to do is stay in and get a blanket. And that is totally fine sometimes, but we can't hibernate our winter away. Here are some date ideas that will make you want to get out there and actually enjoy some winter activities with your special someone.
Ha! So, PSYCH! As much as I hate having to say this, welcome back to my roommate woes for your entertainment Part V! For those of you who’ve read these tales before, you may remember that for the past three years I've moved about every six months because of roommate struggles. Part IV ended with me signing off as a “finally content Salt Lake City Resident.” I’m an idiot. Not two weeks after Part IV was published, my hippie roommate became more than I could handle.
Girls – even when we’re wrong, we’re always right (am I right?!). I’ve used this defense on more than one occasion and sometimes it works! But, (secretly) sometimes it doesn’t. There are a few things that we girls are definitely wrong in doing. Maybe you yourself aren’t guilty – I doubt it – but you know someone who is. Hell, I’m guilty of every single one. But admitting we’re actually at fault is the first step to recovery. And just so we’re clear – if we admit fault before anyone accuses us of it…are we really “wrong?” Of course not – so educate yourselves!

Over the past weekend, I was lucky enough to take the MUSS Bus to San Francisco to watch the Utah vs. Stanford game. For any students who are in the MUSS, I highly recommend going on the trip. It’s only $250 for transportation, 2 nights hotel stay, and your ticket to the game. It is an AWESOME deal if you ask me!
Utah is a very, very dry climate and everyone’s skin reacts differently. Here are ways to help prevent dry, unwanted skin! I'm going to talk to you about three types of skin: dry, oily and combination. How do you know what skin type you have? Well, if your face feels tight and will peel off in some places then you have dry skin. If your face feels/ looks shiny and you could blot off oils onto a paper then you have oily skin. If your skin is oily in your “t- zone” area (the T from your forehead down to your nose) feels tight and could potentially peels around your mouth, then you have combination skin. So now that you know what type of skin you have, follow this special skin care routine I made just for you! All products can be found at Sephora.
