Her Campus Emerson's Summer Survival Picks

Happy finals week, collegiettes! Summer is nearly upon us (can I get an AMEN?) and we have our top picks for what to read, what to wear and where to eat as break begins and we all start hitting the beach.

What to read:

Stay connected to your school life this summer by picking up Her Campus National's recently released Guide to College Life. This book is a must have for all collegiettes and will make navigating coursework, relationships and life in general that much easier. If you're getting ready to head out into the real world soon, Rich Bitch by Nicole Lapin is the perfect resource for advice on how to get your finances in order. 

What to wear:

Once you get your base tan started, grab a set of Blink Tattoos to enhance your beach-ready look. The temporary body tattoos are sparkly and trendy, perfect for standing out at any and all bonfires and tanning trips.

If you're into online shopping (Who are we kidding? Of course you are...), Boo Hoo clothing should already be bookmarked as your favorite place to get fun, fashionable and affordable outfits for all occaisons. Complete your outfit with some statement-making accessories by heading over to chloe + isabel.

Where to eat:

Last, but certainly not least, is our top pick for where to eat healthy and get one step closer to that ideal beach bod. Chipotle is a long time favorite for us collegiettes at HC Emerson, but the recent news that they are completely eliminating GMOs from their food made us fall in love with them all over again. Eat those burritos with pride, ladies.


As the semester comes to a close, don't forget to #CelebrateYourself by indulging in one...or two...or maybe all of the above. We won't judge you.
