The holidays are almost here, which means lots of time making memories with family and friends. Make sure you look picture perfect this holiday season with the following essentials!



Being’s Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom Hand Cream

Right after finals week every college students needs a little pampering. Start with Being’s Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom Hand Cream. I normally hate lotions, but this one smells SO GOOD and makes my hands feel super soft!


Krazy Glue

Follow up with giving yourself a fierce manicure! Have a broken nail? Fix it with Krazy Glue! You can do so with a teabag or with one-ply toilet paper! Just cut a tiny piece of the teabag or TP that is big enough the cover the crack in your nail. Cover the crack with your paper and squeeze a drop of super glue on top! Then just let it dry, file if necessary, and paint over it.


Fast Fix for Puffy Eyes Cooling Eye-Revive Gel

Still tired from finals week and sick of your eye bags on eye bags on eye bags giving you away? Try the Fast Fix for Puffy Eyes Cooling Eye-Revive Gel from Alba Botanica®. Not only is it super natural and pocket sized, but it is also feels super cool all while reducing redness. I was actually amazed with how awesome this felt on my skin!

Roll up to your Christmas and New Years parties with incredible eye makeup! Use Tarte Cosmetics’s Tarteist™ PRO Palette. This palette is laid out in four separate rows with perfect highlight, lid, crease and liner shade pairings. These warm colors will be the envy of everyone at your holiday parties! In addition to looking awesome, you can barely feel that you are wearing makeup. A must have for any makeup lover.


Tarte Cosmetics Lights, Camera, Lashes ™ Mascara

Finish off your eyes with winged eyeliner and mascara using Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes ™ Mascara! Start with the wand at the base of your lashes and pull out in a zig zag motion to reach every lash and reduce clumps. Your lashes will look longer and better than ever!


#ActuallySheCan Le Motto tank

Finally, work out in style over break with an empowering #ActuallySheCan Le Motto tank! Mine says “Less Regret, More Sweat” and I absolutely love it. Not only is it super soft and comfortable, but it actually motivates me to power through some brutal workouts. No one actually wants to exercise over winter break (especially when we could eat cookies and watch Christmas movies), so dress for success in this awesome tank! Not interested in hitting the gym? Wear this tank under an open flannel or leather jacket with leggings and ankle boots for an inspirational but trendy look.
