5 Ways To Survive the Rest of the Semester, As Told by Gilmore Girls

The mid-semester slump is happening right now, and to be honest, we cannot wait a full month for the Gilmore Girls revival to help pull us through. Thanks to our amazing Back to School #HCSurvivalKits, we have a goods that you need to survive the rest of Fall 2016. Good luck, collegiettes.

1. If you look good, you feel good.

The middle of the semester can be a hard time, but Her Campus UFL is here to make sure that you are always looking your best.

Makeup: Add a pop of color to those tired eyes with Rimmel London’s 24HR Supercurler Mascara and Colour Precise Eyeliner.  Step onto campus and be #flawless.

Face: Stay fresh with Freeman Beauty’s ~feeling beautiful~ face masks. With peel-off masks, clay masks, polishing masks and many more, you’ll never look better! They can be ordered online or in Ulta stores.

Clothes: Gamedays may be coming to an end, but it’s never a bad time to wear your best orange and blue attire in Gainesville! Make a statement while supporting your Gators with Flying Colors Apparel! Just choose your school and the rest is easy.

Scent: Your look is not complete without a signature scent. Let’s be honest, Juicy Couture perfume never goes out of style. Take a sniff of their new scent, “I ♥ JUICY COUTURE.” You won’t regret it. 

2. Coffee. Coffee. Coffee.

We can’t provide you with an IV filled with coffee, but we can provide you with an awesome camelbak filled with coffee. Check out Camelbak’s Forge Divide Mug, a insulated travel mug that can be thrown in your backpack without spilling. I mean, what else could you ask for?!

3. Keep your lady friends healthy

Though sometimes it’s comfortable to go commando, not wearing underwear isn’t always the best choice.

Bras/Panties:  Undergarments aren’t always a chore with Maidenform Love the Lift® bras and L’eggs sheer energy panty! Feel ~sexy~ underneath your clothes while also being super comfortable!

Period Probz: Let’s be honest, nobody actually likes to wear tampons and pads. So why not try to things to make those couple days a little more enjoyable?! Check out The DivaCup! It’s a reusable menstrual cup that’s super easy-to-use and comfortable.

#TimeForTMI: It happens to the best of us -- yeast infections. And when it does happen, MONISTAT® is there to start curing on contact! Find our more info here, because you can never be too informed!

4. Find some humor in these dark times

Andrew McMeel Publishing has recently released two hilariously relatable books for us college students (yes, books, but stay with me).

Adulthood is a Myth navigates the world of “adulting” with comics about dating + relationships, hair and makeup, jobs, friendship, body image, introversion, laundry, etc.

The Roommate Book offers a not-serious guide to living with a roommate.

Take a peek through these books. Not only are they great distraction from the stress of school, but you may be surprised at how often you’ll laugh out loud.

5. Stay safe, collegiettes

In reality, you probably won’t get hit by a dear in Gainesville. But... there are clowns.

Wearsafe 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.
