Do midterms got you down? Are you looking for a way to update your look for Fall Break? Are you missing some wardrobe essentials? If you answered yes to any of these questions then stay tuned for what the Her Campus Back to School Survival Kit has for you. 

1. If you’re feeling bored…

…then give Andrews McMeel Publishing’s books a read. Two great options: “Adulthood is a Myth” or “The Roommate Book”. 

  • “Adulthood is a Myth”- Adulting is hard—navigating the murky waters of dating + relationships, hair and makeup, jobs, friendship, body image, introversion, laundry— how to cope?  With Adulthood is a Myth for comic relief!
  • “The Roommate Book”- The Roommate Book offers a not-serious guide to living with a friend (or total stranger).


2. If you don’t want to shave your legs…

…then cover up them bad boys with L’eggs Sheer Energy Sheer Panties. 

  • Black sheers provide perfect balance of sheer and light opaque coverage. Sheer Energy knit micro-tones legs for constant, refreshing comfort that feels like an all-day massage.


3. If you need coffee with you AT ALL TIMES…

… then carry your pick-me-up with you in this CamelBak Forge Divide Mug. 

  • The Forge® Divide is all-terrain mug that makes it easy to drink coffee or tea one-handed, with a drinking valve that opens with the press of a button, and then seals shut to prevent leaks or spills. The leak-proof cap means you can confidently toss the Forge Divide into your bag without soaking your stuff.


4. If you have your sights set on studying abroad…

…then make sure the Wearsafe Tag is on your packing list. 

  • The Wearsafe Tag is the only personal safety button that instantly connects you to the people who know and love you the most, giving them both your location and valuable context about what’s happening through a continuous audio stream. With a private group chat, the people in your network can also communicate with each other to quickly decide how to get you the right help, right away.


5. If you’re ready to say bye bye to tampons…

… then say hello to the Diva Cup. 

  • The DivaCup is a reusable, bell-shaped menstrual cup that is worn internally, collecting rather than absorbing menstrual flow and offering women more convenience, confidence and flexibility. Easy-to-use and comfortable, The DivaCup provides up to 12 hours of leak-free protection all-day and overnight, making it a perfect choice for any activity.


6. If you’re tired of losing your cup at parties…

…then dress up your cup in a Flying Colors Apparel Koozie.

  • Flying Colors designs feminine, fashionable, flirty and fun clothing for fashion forward women of all ages who want to make a statement and support their college and love of collegiate spirit.


7. If you’re wearing your stress on your face…

…then treat yo self with a Freeman Feeling Beautiful Face Mask.

  • Bold. Sensual. Intriguing. The new scent from Juicy Couture is for the glamorous rebel who declares her passion for life and all things Juicy. With notes of sparkling mandarin, jasmine and addictive patchouli, this fragrance is a must-have.

10. If something isn’t quite right “downstairs”… 

… then see if it’s a yeast infection and help yourself out by using MONISTAT Complete Care Instant Itch Relief Cream.

  • When it comes to dealing with intimate health issues like yeast infections, young women are relying on advice that’s plain wrong – and even harmful. More than half – 53% – of young women say they don’t know how to deal with a yeast infection and two out of three women (66%) don’t know it can be cured with an over-the-counter treatment. With all the information out there, finding the right answers can be confusing and overwhelming.  There’s no reason to panic. In many cases, yeast infections areas easily treatable as they are common. MONISTAT® launched It’s Time for TMI because when it comes to your body and your health, you can never have too much information. 


11. If you’re ready for a new look… 

… then reach for a new makeup goodie from Rimmel.
