Back to school essentials

We all know what time is getting closer and closer each day, early mornings, deadlines, homework and “stop chatting and listen!”. We know it too well. But I’m actually looking forward to it in a sense, I like learning (nerd alert) and I love that I get to see my best friend every day again. My uni course starts on 16th September and I found out I’m there Mon-Fri only for 3 and a half hours a day, not to bad, hey. I’ve chose to do this post on my back to school essentials because if you guys are anything like me you’ll of forgot something, I probably already have, you can tell me in the comments below! aha.

So firstly the beauty bits, I always take a concealer with me because sometimes it just wears off throughout the day so a touch up may be needed. A mini mascara is always handy to make your eyes look all pretty and they make them look bigger, which is normally flattering. Lip products, if you read my old posts or follow me on instagram you’ll know i’m a lip product junkie, so i’d take a lipstick, lip gloss and definitively Vaseline, its so handy, especially in winter, my lips get dry and crack and nobody wants that.

A mini hairbrush is always a good thing to carry especially if you go gym or do p.e in the mornings, and deodorant for those reasons too, you don’t wanna stankin’ up the place! Hand sanitizer or hand cream, I normally have a hand sanitizer but I’ve ran out at the moment, but I normally buy the Soap and Glory ones, if you go on a bus or just walking around school you don’t know where people hands have been and sometimes its not the most hygienic of places. I also like to have mints with me especially drinking coffee all day and you might have something a bit smelly for lunch aha. I love a minty fresh breath.

A diary, full year or academic, its always a good idea to have one, I found it helped me a lot with sorting out coursework and random homework bits that had to be handed in, so it was always on time and I could plan what nights I would just sit down and do it. Also its handy for new computer password for school/uni e-mail and logging in, I always forget. Coffee, yum yum yum. Coffee is always needed in the morning, how else would we function! I got this cute porcelain travel coffee mug off eBay, its great if your in a hurry too, you can just have your morning caffeine on the bus.

Stationary, I’ve always loved shopping for stationary, even in primary school, it always made me excited to go back and use my 500 different gel pens, but now I’m at University I don’t need as much, I have some A4 cute notepads for taking notes in lectures, highlighters, they are always needed and a bic pen, they are my favourite pen to write with. I also picked up some page tabs which I thought would come in handy for textbooks and if you need to refer back to things.

What have you guys got for the new school season, anything I missed?
