BACK TO SCHOOL/COLLEGE PREPARATIONS (FEMALE EDITION)

Ladies, you can't start off the new semester unorganized, that wouldn't make us look like professional young adults, would it? That being said, here are some back to school/college must haves!

1. Backpack Backpack, Yeah!

If you need a new backpack now's the time to start purchasing one. You know, to avoid the back to school last minute shopping rush. However, if you do not necessarily need a new book bag DO NOT BUY ONE! You can save those coins for other things you might need in the future.

2. NoteBooks

Here's another tip to save you a few bucks. If you still have empty pages in your notebook from the previous semester, use up those pages. If you don't, then feel free to purchase yourself some new cute notebooks. Remember, the more you save, the better it is for you!

3. Pens/Pencils

Unless you go to a school where they only use laptops to write down information, something tells me you are going to need a couple of pens & pencils.

4. Calculator- You know, for Math. 

5. Wristwatch

So you can pay absolutely no attention to what your lecturers/teachers are saying so you can gaze at the time which seems to be going nowhere, because the class is so boring! Please pay attention kids, your future depends on it.

6. Reading Book

Nowadays everything is on our mobile devices, so you can either download your favorite book on your smartphone or carry a physical copy with you to look intelligent. Psst! I'll go with the hardcopy.

7. Hair, Outfit & Nails. 

Now that we got the essentials out of the way--I think-- it's time to slay your first day back with an outfit that'll make your crush fall 'head over heels' in love with you. Or maybe just notice your existence for the first time in two years. But that's not the point. We go to school to LEARN. No boys, boys bad!
8. Tumbler

I just stuck this one in here because I have an obsession with tumblers and I must share this love with the world.

If you enjoyed this post don't hesitate to share with friends or family members. Like and comment below, I love reading them. Until next time yours truly, Tye!!

BACK TO SCHOOL/COLLEGE HYGIENE TIPS!!

The school semester is about to start again so I figured, "why not come up with some useful hygiene tips for our young female B.O.Y.S (Based On You Subscribers). Sorry guys this one is just for the ladies.

The Self-Care Kit


1. Deodorant

As teenagers our body odor tend to get a little wonky. Therefore, certain deodorants that use to work well for us during our pre-teen years, stopped. So if you don't want to walk around smelling like onions and garlic all day, try switching to Men's Deodorant. Trust me, it works wonders!

2. Feminine Wipes

Purchase yourself a pack of feminine wipes (I prefer baby wipes because they smell so good) so that you can wipe off during the day. Prespiration (sweat) doesn't look or feel good on the skin.

3. Mini- Hand Soap/Hand Sanitizer

I don't know about you guys but at the school I attended they NEVER filled the soap dispensers with liquid hand soap. Even if they did I would never use it because the restrooms looked unsanitary.  Yuck! Always travel with your personal hand soap/hand sanitizer.

4. Emergency Pads

I have no clue what a tampon is or how to even use it. But I do know how to use a disposable pad! (Psst, comment below if you want to see a tutorial). Always travel with a pad in case of an *eh-ehm* EMERGENCY! Don't act brand new girlfriend, we all had those days.

5. Menstrual Cramps Pills

If you have terrible period cramps and your period just happens to pay you a visit on a very unexpected day, be sure to keep a small package of menstrual pills in your kit. You know, to avoid having that face like you want to murder somebody--unless that's always how you look-- in that case you be fine.

6. Lip Balm

7. Peppermint Gum/Mints

Please don't draw attention to yourself by sticking a toothbrush & a tube of toothpaste in your mini self~care kit. Instead buy some gum. If you don't want halitosis (bad breath) all day, especially when talking to your crush who doesn't know he'll be your future husband one day, baby girl 'pop a gum'! (P.S. Do not pull out your gum in front of a crowd).

8. Lotion

Don't pretend like your skin never experienced a drought. Always travel with lotion!

9. Mini-Body Spray

Nothing better than looking good like smelling yummy. Yummy yummy yummy!

5 THINGS YOU MUST DO BEFORE SUMMER ENDS!

So, you haven't travelled since Summer started, but that does not mean it's impossible to have fun before it ends. Here are "5 Things You Must Do Before Summer Ends!"

1. Starbucks

Visit your favorite coffee shop or restaurant with friends or family members. Sit down, chat about life, your goals, take photos etc. Make even the smallest moments count with the people you love.



2. Water Balloon Fight

I live upstairs in a 3 Story apartment so my friends and I decided to take a trip to our local beach to have our water balloon fight. So, get your buckets full of water balloons & throw on your cutest swimsuite, it's about to get wet!

3. Movie Day/Night

Do people still go to the movies these days? Anyway--plan a day/night at the movies with your squad & spoil yourself with your favorite snacks. Hey! You deserve it because you didn't go to Paris for Summer like your snobbish co-worker/classmate who you stalked on Instagram and whose probably going to brag about the entire trip when they return as if anybody cared. Totally not jealous by the way.



4. Go Out Dancing

You can either throw a dance party with  your friends at home, or finally take that cute black dress off the rack in your closet that you've been saving for a special occasion. Beat the heck out of your face & go to a disco boo!



5. Room Decor

"Wow! Room what Tye?". I know, I know it sounds a little far fetch but if you haven't already, you can give yourself a little change of scenery by decorating your room with either summer knick knacks or simply a new painting or night stand. Psst! I heard the thriftstore has great decor items for the low.


Remember Summer should be a time to enjoy yourself, have wholesome fun, and should be something to brag about when you get back to your sucky job or school. Don't stay home wasting precious time behind a computer screen. If you enjoyed this post, feel free to like, share & comment below what your plans are for the rest of the break. That being said, Love you guys & Happy Summer!
