Surviving Finals Week

Can you believe that today begins the the first full week of December?! For me, that means it's finals week--yikes! I have one today, two tomorrow, one on Thursday, and my final one on Friday. If I can make it through tomorrow, I think I'll be fine. As I'm sure you'd all agree, finals week is super-stressful, and everyone is a bit more on edge than usual. To survive finals week, I rely on a few things that I just can't live without: 

My study spot in the library 

Goldfish, my favorite on-the-go snack 

InStyle for when I take "study breaks" 

Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Lattes 

Michael Buble Music--right now I'm obsessed with my MB Holiday Pandora Station

My Lilly Thermal Mug for Coffee refills

My cozy bed that I miss oh, so much while I'm studying away in the library! 

What can't you live without during finals week? Hope y'all have a wonderful Monday!
