Having a few Krazy Glue Singles on hand can make all the difference between a last-minute emergency and an easy-to-fix solution. Did your heel break in the middle of a night out?

#ActuallySheCan + Le Motto

Who doesn’t love a good statement tee, especially when that statement is empowering to women?

With slogans such as “Less Drama, More Karma,” “Less Regret, More Sweat,” and “Less Hesitation, More Meditation,” your activewear will both encourage you to find your focus while also rocking some cool threads.

These endlessly wonderful products are here to help collegiettes everywhere dominate the end of their semester while also preparing them to enjoy a well-deserved break. However you are spending the holiday season, we hope it is filled with happiness!
