5 Must Haves For Hell Week (Finals)

Are you girls all freaking out too? I know...It sucks! Late night cram sessions, then when you finally can manage to fall asleep you have nightmares, your alarm clock doesn't go off, you forget everything you know, you forget pants I know I've had them all! Finals are awful, you have to take two hour long exams when other people are at the beach and getting a summer glow. Here are 5 things that will help you survive :)

1. Comfy sweat pants: I love Victoria Secrets Boyfriend sweats! They're baggy yet cute and chic. I have them in Purple, Black and Blue, I am so obsessed! They are a little pricey, but they will last forever plus they are adorable. For summer I would pair them with a cute tank.

2. Hair Elastics That Won't Slip: The hair ties with the grips are fantastic, because you don't have to worry about your hair falling all over the place during your test. I recommend: Goody hair ties, they can be found at any drugstore!

3. Easy Effortless Makeup: You have enough to worry about, you don't want to take 20 minutes trying to blend your crease right. I reccomend: a cream eyeshadow, it stays put and looks like you put way more effort in then you really do. A tinted moisturizer, a total summer staple, plus it light weight. A tinted lip balm, with tinted lip balm you can slide it onto your lips really quick and still have a bit of color on your lips! Also bronzer to give you a little glow.
Any drugstore would have these products :)

4. A Good Face Mask: When I get home after a day of tests, I just want to relax. I adore face masks! I recommend: Queen Helenes Mint Julep Mask, you can find it at Walgreens or CVS for around $4. Or make your own! (In the next couple of days I'll have a post on DIY Beauty Treatments for you girls!)

5. Patience :) Look on the bright side! You have shortend school days and school is almost over!

When it's all over? I recommend: A party with a big or small group, co-ed or just with your girls...enjoy your summer is just beggining and its time to celebrate! A pool party or even just a BBQ with some tiki torches and your BFF's! Summer is a time for friendship and memories, so make the most out of it!!!


  1. Love this post. I wish you had it up a few weeks ago when I was in finals. LOL but I love it. I just used the Queen Helenes Mint Julep Mask last night. Love it. Can't wait for your DIY treatment. I am hoping to do a post after I try a few I have found online.

  2. I have my finals this week too!
    My friends and I have already planned a party for afterwards.
