Finishing Strong: Her Campus Style

If you attend a university that does not offer a Fall break prior to Thanksgiving break, you understand that going home for an entire week for Thanksgiving is the biggest tease on the planet. At this point, it genuinely seems like the semester is never going to end. Getting through these last few weeks of the semester and to Winter break is no easy task; however, we here at Her Campus have a few ideas of how to not only survive the end of the semester, but how to finish strong.


Put things back together.

Just about everything has fallen apart by this point in the semester—your GPA, your sleep schedule, your diet—we totally get it. It’s that time of the year! Luckily, for those things you can fix, like the pair of booties you broke the heel off of one weekend, there’s Krazy Glue! These adorable packs have enough glue in each tube for one fix. Keep them in your desk or in your purse because you never know when you’ll need them.


Revive your eyes.

Remember how we mentioned your sleep schedule falling apart? We totally have you covered for that too! Fast Fix for Puffy Eyes Cooling Eye-Revive Gel by Alba Botanica® is perfect after you’ve pulled an all-nighter and need to freshen up your eyes in a hurry. Not only is this amazing product hypoallergenic, it’s also vegetarian! The only thing that could make this product better is if it were pocket sized…which it is! We love it!


Enhance those eyes.


I don’t know about you, but doing my makeup can be a serious stress reliever. Tarte Cosmetics is absolutely incredible whenever you’re looking to enhance your eye makeup game. The Tarteist™ PRO Palette is a professional eyeshadow palette that works for all skin tones! This palette works whenever you’re wanting to be over the top or sweet and subtle. No eye look is complete without mascara and Tarte has you covered! Lights, Camera, Lashes™ is like a push-up bra for your lashes! This vegan mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes, and conditions your lashes with each use!


Take care of your hands.

You’ve spent the last two weeks writing papers and studying nonstop. Your hands are a boss and it’s time to treat them as such. With their smells that are pure, perplexing deliciousness—Being will have you feeling and smelling like the baddest boss in the room. With scents like Salted Caramel & Macadamia and Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom what’s not to love?



Dress inspired.


When #ActuallySheCan partnered with retailer Le Motto, everyone knew that these designs would be a success. I mean, what else would happen when you combine a female empowerment with a retailer that focuses on positivity? The #ActuallySheCan Tanks, created in partnership with Le Motto, are perfect activewear and come with some of the greatest empowering slogans in three different colors. Our personal favorite is the “Less Regret More Sweat.”



This end of the semester is rough. We’ve been here for what seems like an eternity and it seems like the schoolwork will never end. Take some time to treat yourself and remember to breathe. After finals, we all deserve some serious R&R!
