Spring Break Essentials

Spring break is now less than a week away, and after 9 weeks of nonstop class, we cannot wait for the relaxation and rejuvenation that comes with a break. Here at Her Campus Clemson we want to make sure you have the BEST spring break possible, so we have compiled a list of some must-haves for your vacay whether you spend it at home or abroad.


1. Glowing Skin

You’ll be taking pictures while on vacation, and you’ll want to make sure you radiate. A little bit of self-tanner can go a long way in boosting your self-confidence and putting your best face forward. There is nothing wrong with a little help. For goodness sake, you have been too busy studying in the library for your mid-terms to work on your tan!

Our picks? We like Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes for a quick tan and Sublime Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion to get that spring break glow.


2. Polished Toes

It’s sandal season! Nail polish is a great way to top off your look and to express your excitement for the season with bright colors! In addition, if you’re taking a trip to the beach, you’ll want to see that sand between your polished toes.


3. Must-Reads

A break from school means a break from all that required reading. It’s the perfect time to catch up on some reading. We are anxiously awaiting our copy of Ann Shoket’s The Big Life which will be released just in time to pack in our suitcase! Magazines are also a great way to unwind. We love #ActuallySheCan Success Issue to inspire us on those long car rides.


4. Relaxed Waves

While on spring break, you don’t want to worry about your hair. So let that hair down! Embrace your natural waves. To keep your hair still looking good, we suggest investing in some dry shampoo. It can be a lifesaver when you are having too much fun to wash your hair in the morning. We love Pssst! Tropical Dry Shampoo! It even comes in a travel size which is perfect for plane flights.


5. All-Purpose Tote

Totes are a great way to keep everything together, and there are so many fun styles and colors that you are sure to find one that suits you! It’s a nice break from lugging around a heavy backpack too.


6. Sunglasses

The sun will be shining, and you want to make sure you don’t miss anything by squinting your eyes. Don’t forget to grab your sunnies before leaving your dorm room for break.


7. Fun Planner

Spring break definitely requires a plan if you are traveling. We cannot express how much love we have for Erin Condren and her amazing planners! Not only are they helpful, but the bright colors make them fun!


8. Fresh Makeup

We love the fun and fresh colors of Charlotte Tillbury’s Hot Lips lipstick. Spring break is the perfect time to play with your makeup and try out some bright & bold shades!


We hope you all have a fun and safe spring break!
