Exam Week Survival Guide

Yes, exams are here again.. What a jolly time of year.. not really. I just had two exams today (Spanish 5 and AP Calculus) and it was quite stressful and tiring to say at the least. To help all of you out there with exams, I thought this post would be helpful. I’m not going to mention the usual stuff like pencils and calculators but instead I’m just going to mention things that will make your week more enjoyable and pleasant 🙂 The picture on the right is how I organized piles of paper for studying this past weekend haha. Let me know how you de-stress during exam week or any secrets you have! I love you guys!

Firstly, it is important to feel comfortable when you’re working extremely hard and have to sit in hard chairs for an entire day. Therefore, sweats are essential for exam week. I go to a private school so we are not allowed to wear t-shirts and sweats during the year but we are allowed to dress down for exam week. When you go this week without makeup, then you will at least feel cute if your sweats if you wear ones like the ones below:

American Eagle Sweatshirts- $24.95
Victoria’s Secret Hoodies- $69.50
Victoria’s Secret Crews $25.00

Fuzzy socks are so comfortable for exam week! I wore a pair today I love them so much! My mentee actually gave me a pair as a present and I will do a blog post on that another time 🙂 (Thanks Holly! lol). These fuzzy socks below come with a teddy bear!! (This would be great for a present!) They are only $6 at Wal-Mart!

Warm boots are also lovely for exam week. This plus the fuzzy socks will make you so incredibly comfortable that you will want to walk around for no reason. The weather where I live has gotten incredibly cold and everyone is wearing boots to their exams this week. Check out these boots below 🙂

All of these boots except the bottom left one in the last picture are Uggs. They usually price around $140. The boots in the bottom left of the last picture is from Aeropostale and only cost $12!

Lastly, it is important to relax during exam week! Don’t forget to care for yourself as you push your brain to the max and eat whatever is around. A bubble bath is the perfect way to wind down after a hard day at school. Try these products from Lush; they are all hand made and from natural ingredients! The round bath items are called Bath Bombs which have been described to “bursts and explode with a mass of fragrant fizzing, sometimes launching flower petals, natural butters, fruit, leaves and even confetti.” Here is the website for Lush! www.lush.com

Good luck on your exams!!!

Fabulous Fact: LUSH has become a palm oil free company. The increasing demand for palm oil is leading to the wholesale destruction of rainforests in Malaysia and Indonesia. Palm oil is found in food products, bio fuels and is a key ingredient in many cosmetics, including soaps. LUSH has created an initial goal of being organic and “green” and changing their base for soaps has been beneficial to the environmental.
