I'm going to be reviewing the products that I've received in my Target spring & summer sample beauty bag. Nivea Extended Moisture Daily Lotion was in the spring beauty bag. Keep reading to find out what I think of this lotion! If you haven't seen the video of me "unboxing" the Target Spring beauty bag, the video will be linked below so keep reading!
A good jacket should be able to last you from season to season. It’s something that you’re likely to be wearing every day, or on more than one occasion. It is also something that should complement your style, fit comfortably, and go with pretty much anything. Comfort and durability are important considerations.
Mens jackets aren’t simply about keeping warm. Chances are, your clothes are going to be one of the first things people notice about you. They give people the heads up on who you are, and what your style is. So, taking the time to look around for something that fits well and looks good is usually time well spent.
Trends come and go – we all know that – and before you know it, you’re beginning to look like you got dressed in the dark. A clever coat or jacket could be the thing you need to stay looking cool – whilst keeping warm at the same time.
There are plenty of menswear retailers out there, so there’s little excuse when it comes to getting the look just right. G Star RAW, Soul Cal and Topshop all provide excellent men’s clothes. River Island is also a good stop for on trend pieces that won’t break the bank.
If you’re wondering what colour or shade you should be looking for, think about where you’re going to wear it. For work and business, navy blue, brown and black are always going to fit in perfectly. A lighter brown in suede or corduroy will set you apart, whilst still looking smart.
Bright blazers are very much in this year, and are available in a rainbow of colours from green to salmon. Whilst these are a great choice for casual wear on a night out, caution should be advised when it comes to teaming a colourful piece with the rest of your outfit. If you do choose to go bright, make sure you tone it down with plain fabrics and muted colours elsewhere.
If you’re just looking for something to wear with everything and anything, take a look at some of the great zip-up, high neck coats available on the market. These look great whilst also being masculine and durable. They’ll also keep you dry if things start to look stormy.
Whatever style you decide to try, this season’s men’s fashion is all about the perfect fit, so it’s time to move away from baggy or loose clothes. Hoods are fine, but make sure they work well with the image you’re trying to project. Whilst great for casual wear, they’re a big no-no for the work place, and should be avoided.
There are plenty of great coats and mens jackets around, whether you’re after something for the spring, or something that will see you through summer and autumn as well. A good men’s jacket should complete a look, whatever the weather, and will keep you looking smart and feeling confident. ;)
Use the college app essay to improve your chances of being
admitted into the college of your dreams—especially if your test scores, grades
and extracurricular activities aren’t as strong. The essay can set you apart
from the other applicants at your level, bumping you from a “maybe” to a
Use it to describe your favorite activity, story about
yourself, etc. The most important part is capturing the reader’s attention, and
the easiest way to do that is to talk about something you’re passionate about.
Since this could be the deciding factor in your admission
process, make sure you start early. For me personally, I wrote my first college
app essay my freshman year of high school because my English teacher assigned
it. After that, I got a lot of practice by writing practice SAT essays, as well
as writing college app essay assignments my senior year (I eventually used
those for my app!).
If you don’t get the chance to do it your first three years
of high school, then do it during the summer before senior year! This gives you
time to play around with ideas, as well as get feedback from other people. If
you’re not going to be a senior in the fall, just print out the prompts for the
universities you’re interested in and start thinking of good topics to write
about (as well as activities that you should do so that you can have an awesome
activity to write about J).
Five easy steps to writing the essay:
Print out prompts.
Brainstorm topic ideas. (go crazy!)
Select an essay topic.
Write the essay.
Proofread!!! Be sure to have others look at it
·Write about yourself with your own voice.
·Be genuine and honest.
·Be concise. Most prompts have word limits.
·Provide vivid details.
·Focus on one aspect about yourself to seem more
in-depth and passionate.
·Mundane topics about your life are A-OK; your
essay doesn’t have to be outrageous to be an interesting read.
·Share opinions, but be sure to back them up with
details and facts. Keep in mind your audience (the admissions committee). They
read thousands of (boring, typical) applications, so entertain them but don’t
·Most importantly, tell a good story! Show how
you overcame something of great difficulty, learned something new, became a
better person, etc. Write an essay that you yourself would want to read.
It’s super important to focus on the essay because it’s one
of the few things you can still control when you apply. Scores, grades, and
activities are past things that can’t be changed. The college app essay is your
opportunity to show off, and prove that you’re the best choice the college has
ever made. Good luck. J
I recently picked up a new sunscreen because I didn't have any sunscreen and I started swimming lessons this week, and because I lost my Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen. I think Neutrogena came out with this product around May or June this year, so I assume that this sunscreen is fairly new. If not, my mistake! Today I'll be reviewing Neutrogena Wet Skin Kids Beach & Pool Sunscreen.
