Treat Yo’Self: Finals are Over!

Written by: Sarah Felbin


Summer is here! No more tests, quizzes, or homework – and best of all, finals are finally over! After so much stressing and studying, everyone deserves a break… But your summer budget has to last until the end of August, so hiring Justin Timberlake for a backyard concert might not be the best idea. Instead, treat yourself with these fun, fabulous (pink!) finds, all for under $15!



Relaxing R&R

One of the best ways to relax is by amping up your bath time! (Yes, we said bath.) These products will help you get the most of your suds and bubbles, so you can enjoy being worry-free.

Inspired by Audrey Hepburn, this sweet bath bomb is just the thing after a long day at the beach!



Bright Mani-Pedis

In the mood for a new shade? Any of these stunning pinks make for a majorly marvelous mani! Feeling bold? Go for a perfectly painted pedi instead, or mix and match for the ultimate summer combo!

Soft Waves

Hang on, not the kind you’re thinking of! While we can’t wait for sea breezes and ocean waves, what we really want is soft, wavy hair, the kind that makes mermaids jealous. These products will help protect your locks from harsh sunscreens and sea salt that can dry them out.

Can’t stop, won’t stop beaching it all summer long? This dry shampoo lets you keep going days after your last dip in the pool! Fresh hair + awesome scent = your best hair ever!
