Hello charmers and welcome to a new post! Now if you´ve seen the title you can pretty much guess where this is going but that doesn´t mean that we can´t make it a little bit more fun. That´s right, with summer vacation almost over and back to college time right around the corner I´ve decided to share with you my essentials and must-haves to make the return to class a little less dreary and much more fun.
So, without further ado here is my back to school (or college in my case) essentials and must-haves haul. I hope you enjoy it!
Backpack: A backpack is something that is extremely important, not only because you will use it pretty much all year but it also adds character and helps you define your style. Now I usually choose black leather backpacks but the one that I´m using this year is this super cute aquamarine and fucsia vans backpack that was a gift from my mom. Now, the best part about this backpack is that is has a lot of pockets which is super useful since I usually carry a lot of stuff around.
Planner: For me, a planner is extremely necessary and I carry mine around wherever I go (I use as a backup for my smartphone in case something happens) and I use it to keep track of everything, from exams and papers for college to work and doctor appointments. This planner was designed by me and I was inspired by Lilly Pulitzer designs.
Multi-subject notebooks: Call me old-fashioned but sometimes I prefer to take notes instead of typing them on my tablet. Since I usually have multiple classes a day I prefer to take one single notebook instead of one notebook for each class and these are perfect for that.
Tablet/Laptop: Now I don´t usually take these to college with me (call me paranoid but living in Venezuela I don´t trust to ride the subway with a laptop in my backpack) but since Journalism is one of my majors I have to stay up to date in what is going around the world. I not only use my computer for college reasons, I also use to keep up with my blog and to create a ton of fashion designs.
Smartphone: This more of an everyday essential since my phone, along with my planner, is super important (this is such a milleniall statement that I think we can all agree on!) because I keep a lot of things on my phone from contacts to applications and all of my social media.
Pencil case: This goes right along with my pens & highlighters since I need something to carry them around. Now, this isn´t exactly a brand new item, I think I´ve had had this pencil case since last year but honestly, this pencil case has so much space and owls are one of my favourite animals since pretty much ever.
Pens & Highlighters: Right now I´m using a fountain pen to take notes but I also like to have glitter pens for titles and dates and highlighters to remember anything that might be important in the texts.
Post-It Notes: They're not exactly an essential for me since I mostly use them when I´m studying but for some people, Post-its are really necessary.
Well, this is everything for this post, I hope you enjoy it and if you want you can leave what are some of your favourite school or college essentials in the comments below!
