Midterm Tips!

It’s that time of the semester again— I just spent the last two weeks preparing for and tackling all of my midterms for my fall classes. If you’re a college student, like me, you know that having a bunch of tests to get through can be both stressful and challenging. Here are some tips to help you get through the work!

Get organized! I like to write down my daily schedule and lists (to-do lists, shopping lists, homework lists, etc) in my day planner. Planning out what you need to get done for the day makes it easy to allot time in your busy schedule for studying and homework. I know that day planners are pretty much the perfect side kick to any prepster these days… but just in case you don’t happen to have one already, here are a few of my favorites–

Gallery Leather – $28 – I just purchased this planner in ‘Wasabi’ in preparation for 2013! It’s simple, lightweight and very cute–not to mention I love the gold trim on the pages!

Maybooks – ~$20 -Maybooks are fun, you get to design your own day planner or notebook! There are so many pretty cover patterns to choose from, not to mention you can add your name or monogram to it!

Lilly Pulitzer – $26 – I feel like everyone is sporting a Lilly Pulitzer agenda these days. The cover features one of her beautiful patterns, and the inside pages are just as lovely!

Once you have found a time to study, make sure you stick to your schedule and get the work done. Don’t procrastinate and you can save yourself from a lot of stress! Sometimes it’s helpful to form study groups with friends from your classes; you guys can help each other out on the material you’re not totally comfortable with. While you’re at it why not go all out and order a pizza and make it a study party!

Now when it comes to test taking outfits, being comfortable is key! But remember, just because it’s a midterm day doesn’t mean your outfit can’t be cute too! Need outfit ideas? Check these out—
