Pop Sugar Must Have Box...
This month Pop Sugar sent me their January Must Have Box. Since I'm in college I don't have the chance to go to the store and pick up a bunch of new products all the time so this subscription box is great. I've also tried out the Glossybox, which is mostly makeup, so I like that Pop Sugar has a variety of products in their boxes. Here are my three favorite things that came in the box! Check out everything that I got in this blog post.

1. Hair Towel
This is a really great dupe for the turby twist. I used to have something similar back at home but it didn't make the move to college with me so I was pumped when I saw this in the Pop Sugar Must Have Box. Basically you tie your hair up in the towel, as I've shown, and because it's so compressed your hair dries faster. It's also a lot smaller than a normal towel that you would use to wrap your hair so you can do stuff without worrying about it falling off. My only complaint is that the material isn't super soft on my dry skin. I hate that feeling of dry skin catching on things (ew! right?) and this towel slightly had that sensation. That could completely be a me problem though! I also thing if you washed it with some fabric softener it would go away.
2. Monthly Desk Calendar
I love these desk calendar's but unfortunately my desk in college in tiny. I had some string lights running above some photos on my wall so I decided to attach the first 5 months on to the string lights. I LOVE the way it came out and think I might use these monthly calendars to decorate my apartment next year too!
3.Goldfaden MD Peel Off Mask
I love this mask because it fixes the texture of your skin. I hate when I put on foundation and it sinks in to all the groves in your skin because it's uneven. This mask has folic acid in it to help correct unevenness. All you do it clean your skin, then rub on a little bit of the mask, wait 3 minutes, and then wash it off and moisturize! I have sensitive skin so I've learned that I should leave it on for maybe 1-2 minutes instead of the full 3 or else it stings a bit.
Today's post comes as advice from someone who has never been sick more times in their life than at college. For most of middle and high school I would maybe catch a cold once a year. I would miss a day or two of school so I could recover and then go right back at it. College caught me by storm. The first week was sorority recruitment, which was super stressful. Stress conveniently lowered my immune system during a time when I was meeting, shaking hands with, and hugging more people than ever. I got a really bad cold and never seemed to fully recover. I would get better for a week or two only to go back to being sick the next. To make things worse I couldn't take days off because you miss one class in college and you're practically weeks behind in work. The lack of sleep, water and exercise caused my body to never completely get over my cold. This semester I'm driven to change things. Nothing sucks more than being forced to attend college classes or go out with a cold. So here are my tips on how I am going to remain healthy and happy this semester!
DRINK extra WATER
Start Taking Medicine early
Get extra sleep
find time to relax
So this post is featuring my new Snake Print Sneakers by Aldo! I got these over winter break and I am obsessed. I already have snake print skirts and accessories but I have been hunting for an affordable pair of snake print slips-ons for a long time. I think snake print is super trendy right now and so are slip-ons! I wear these shoes with everything from dresses, jeans, leggings, to skirts. The snake pattern is neutral colored so it goes with everything but still adds a super edgy flair. I hope you all enjoy this look I wore when I was back home over winter break!
