Fall Essentials That Dreams Are Made Of


Fall is slowly creeping up on us and now is the time to get prepared for the new season! Her Campus Media sent me a box of fall essentials and I am excited to share everything about these goodies with you!

I have been obsessed with light pastels, even for fall decor this year and that being said, I swear Her Campus curated this box just with me in mind!

The first thing in the box was the gorgeous Ellie backpack from High Sierra in the print Tropic Nights! This backpack (on sale for $34.99 + extra 20% off is made with the most gorgeous print I have ever seen- it’s so precious! It’s palm inspired with sweet pink florals and I am envious that I didn’t have a backpack this cute when I was in school. This backpack has a desired TECH SPOT™ tablet sleeve, a huge main pocket with an adjustable drawstring closure which has two small open pockets and a zip pocket, a front pocket with organizational slots and a key fob, two side pockets that have a snap closure (perfect for snacks and lipgloss (which I will discuss later in the post 😉), as well as a matching zippered pencil pouch, which could be used as a makeup/toiletries if you want to use the backpack for traveling like I do! Since I’m not in school anymore, this backpack has been my partner in crime for my latest travels and I love it’s durability and capacity! Student or not, you will love this backpack!

Fall travels call for delicious road trip snacks and Her Campus hooked me up in that department as well with Garden of Life organic lifestyle bars! You guys know I love a healthy snack and with only 8-10 whole food ingredients, you can’t go wrong with GOL bars! Each bar contains 12g of Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, grass-fed whole milk protein along with real whole foods such as organic dates, nuts and blueberries. These bars also have no added sugars, which is amazing, and they are high in protein and fiber! They come in 4 flavors – Chocolate Coconut, Blueberry, Chocolate Sea Salt and Maple Sea Salt! I received the Chocolate Sea Salt and Maple Sea Salt. These are great for when you’re hiking, just worked out or need a quick snack in between classes! The chocolate sea salt flavor tastes similar to a tootsie roll, but obviously a healthier version without the sugar jolt. I’m looking forward to seeing what the Maple sea salt flavor tastes like!

In addition to snacks, Her Campus also sent me 2 different beauty products! The first is Bliss’ Lemon & Sage body butter which my skin will thank them for once the weather starts cooling down and the air gets dryer. The lemon and sage sent is so refreshing and this will be a perfect addition to a little fall pamper night- especially when traveling! They sent me a full size, which has found its new home in my nightstand and a bunch of travel sizes which will accompany me on all of my fall and winter travels!! What I love about this body butter is that it’s fast absorbing and leaves skin soft and smooth, never greasy! I also really like that it is formulated for all skin types because my skin is oily some days and extremely dry on others.

The other beauty product that they sent over is four different shades of Almay’s new Goddess Gloss from their Cosmic Collection, available at Ulta! This collection is so fun! The colors are full of sparkle and I can’t wait to layer these over my darker fall lip colors for fall to give them a fun twist! I received the shades rainbow, mystic, fairy, and flame! I really love the way that fairy looks on its own (I’m wearing it in the photos for this post) and I am excited to see what fun looks I can create with the other shades! I think they’ll be fun for the Holiday Season and New Year’s too! My favorite part about these glosses is that they go on smooth and aren’t sticky! These glosses are hypoallergenic and fragrance free so anyone can enjoy them. They are also pretty long lasting as well!

Last but not least, Her Campus sent me an eye mask from their own merch collection, which you can find at the HCXO Shop! This adorable 100% silk eye mask will be a dream when traveling on long road trips or flights! It is the softest sleep mask ever and I am absolutely in love with it! It says Never Stop Dreaming, which is a motto I love to live by! Her Campus is all about empowerment and helping women reach their goals and live their dreams so I am really excited to have my first piece from their merch collection!

This box was such a great surprise to kick off the fall season and I will be thoroughly enjoying each and every one of these items throughout the season! Let me know if you have any questions about any of these items- I’d be happy to help! Thank you so much for reading and I hope you are having a great long weekend!!
