Hey guys! I don’t know if you all would be interested in this, but I wanted to do a “haul” of my school supplies and things I bring to school and use on a regular basis, minus the textbooks. 🙂 So…here it is! Let me know what you guys use down below, and don’t forget to subscribe to get new weekly posts! ❤

The backpack I use is the North Face Women’s Jester. Here’s why I love it!
a. It’s super comfy and doesn’t hurt my back when I am carrying a lot of books.
b. It fits a ton of stuff and has good organization pockets in the front.
c. It’s sporty, still cute and very practical.
d. It’s durable and cleans easily.
My first semester I bought an ASUS laptop because I needed something very fast for the design programs, because I was studying Interior Design. When I switched to business I wanted a laptop that was smaller, handier, simple, but still fast. So I sold my other one and bought a MacBook Air 13″. Three words suffice. I Love It!
So awesome. I don’t have an Apple phone so this was my first Apple product. It took a while for me to figure out the operating system and the interface, but overall it’s very user friendly and super handy for school. It has a long battery life and I love how thin and easy to carry around it is!
I am an absolute lover of pens and anything ‘office supplies’. And of course, school supplies is my favorite outlet for this. This year I got a set of PaperMate flair colored pens, ProMarx grippy pens in blue and black, two ComfortMate ULTRA mechanical pencils, a black Sharpie marker, Sharpie highlighters, and I have a few extra pens and pencils that I keep at home.
My pencil case is a faux leather one I found at TJMaxx. I think it’s really cute, and it holds all my pens, pencils, and a few extra things like a stapler.
One of the things I couldn’t live without in school is a planner. I love them (along with the pens :P) and get a new one every semester even though they aren’t even half finished. The one I am using this year is an Eccolo LTD, Dayna Lee collection planner, that is super cute. It’s smaller than the ones I usually get, but that’s what I wanted for this semester. I also use a note pad on my desk to write down reminders, quick notes or anything I don’t want to write in my planner.
Next, are a bunch of extra things I use during school.
- My TI-inspire CX (Texas Instruments graphing calc).
- A mini stapler (highly recommend having one of these!)
- My Seagate Backup Plus Slim (for Mac)–very useful to have this computer backup. In school you want one in case your computer fails and you lose all your work!
- A POM Gear portable battery to recharge devices. I just bought this and don’t yet know how well it works.
- A Kingston 8GB flashdrive. I take this with me to school and use it for presentations or just a quick backup, while my other Seagate stays at home.
Last is my little bag of “purse supplies”. 🙂
I carry (other than wallet and phone and keys):
-a Pacifica perfume roll on
-a EOS lip balm
-a BurtsBees lip color
-a Tide mini stain remover
-a small pack of Kleenex
-my sunglasses (Aviator ones like these)
So, what do YOU carry in your bag or backpack? Let me know if you’d like me to do more of this kind of thing! 🙂 ❤
