so if you're like me, your first day is coming up in about 2 weeks! you don't want to seem totally unprepared, so here are some tips.

i don't care how nervous you are, you're going to be seeing a lot of people for the first time in 3 months, so you don't want big dark circles under your eyes! get AT LEAST 8 hours of sleep, and drink water the day before and the day of!

eat a good breakfast! you don't want embarrassing tummy grumbles and it'll give you energy. have something healthy, like a fried egg on toast, fresh fruit, yogurt, or a smoothie, NOT something super bad like mcdonalds or fast food, bacon, or other unhealthy things! start your day right and you'll want to eat healthy the entire day

pick out your outfit in advance! it helps so much, especially when you're not used to dressing to a dress code. if you wear shorts, make sure that they are acceptable for your school! (aka not super tight and short). wear your favorite new shirt, you'll have confidence and it'll be something a lot of people haven't seen you wear before. don't wear those super cute high heels you bought either, dress like you did last year, comfy, cute shoes always work! also, don't wear a tee shirt, it's the first day, try a little!

wash your face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am super anal about my skin, so wash and exfoliate the night before, maybe do a mask (your skin will be glowing!), and then when you wake up wash your face again! DONT POP PIMPLES. 1. ewwwwwww and 2. it doesn't really help, bacteria gets all up in your zit. ;alksdf;alsdkj ew. wear simple makeup, don't overdo foundation and bronzer if you wear it, you don't want the foundation line on your chin or to have your face be shades darker than your body. for teeth, always brush! but you could try doing some white strips or whitening products awhile before school just so you have some extra sparkle in your smile! for nails, paint them a few days before in a cute color so you don't seem like you're trying to hard, they'll have some wear, and if you mess up you won't be rushed the night before!

i'm sorry, but at my school, everyone uses a backpack. TNF has super cute ones! girls who try to use purses always seem like their purse is super heavy, the purse gets destroyed super quick, and it's not that cute or stylish. just get a really good cute backpack that will last at least the entire year! pacsun has cute ones but they won't last forever, so if you want a really good one get a hiking one by TNF, jansport, or mountain hardwear.

hope this helps! we're taking requests and advice questions so comment or pm us!
