Back to School Essentials + GIVEAWAY!

Hi Friends!

It’s back to school season….UGH. But to make school a little more tolerable, I’m sharing my ultimate BTS essentials. Things I never ever start the school year without. Warning- this post is probably going to make you want to go out and buy office supplies and re-vamp your desk area. You’ve been forewarned.

*Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with any of the brands mentioned and all opinions are my own!*

1 . Ink Joy Pens

Freaking. Ink. Joy. My life changed when I discovered these pens. So many colors, they write so smooth, they don’t bleed, and they’re not felt tip! (I can’t stand felt tip!!!) I have a huge stash in my home desk and I always buy the Mega Pack before every school year. Yes, I am that girl that color-codes her notes. These pens are kind of why.

2. An {adorable} Pencil Pouch

Okay, there’s a few different ways to go with this one. I’ve had everything from monogrammed, to Lilly Pulitzer, to old Clinique makeup bags, it’s really up to you. My favorite is this kate spade one!

3. Cute Folders / Binders

I’m obsessed with color coding my folders and notebooks to match the class. It’s where my true Type-A quirkiness really show through! I love these from Office Depot and these from Target!

4. Hydration (A Cute Waterbottle)

Staying hydrated is so so important especially when we’re all back in school. I’m obsessed with Camelbaks. I’m not quite sure if it’s the colors or the style or the fact that everyone has one, but I’m obsessed. You can even put cute stickers on them to make them stand out! They just released a collection of printed ones and i pretty much DIED when I saw the floral one!!! Here’s the one I’m carrying this year!

5. A Pretty and Productive Desk Area!

I work best when I’m comfortable and inspired by my desk space! I love colorful office supplies and fun prints! It truly helps with my productivity and keeps me in a good mood while I’m working on schoolwork! To shop some of my favorite prints click here.
