My Top 8 Back-To-School Essentials

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Even though I'm not going back to school this year, I'm still getting excited looking at all the pretty stationery - and maybe have caved and bought a few things to add to my [already ridiculously large] stash of notebooks...I can't resist! I'm a paper lover. :)

Whether it's your Freshman year or Senior year (or somewhere in between!) or you're just a graduate with a penchant for pretty paper, I've rounded up my favorite bits for your enjoyment. What can I say? I'm a stationary-hoarder's worst nightmare...XD

1. Rifle Paper Co. Russian Rose Pocket Notepad
2. Kate Spade Quick and Curious Spiral Bound Notebook
3. Rifle Paper Co. 17-Month Desktop Planner
4. Longchamp Le Pliage Nylon Backpack, Bilberry
5. Pilot G2 Pens (the best!)
6. Manqo Jacquard Cotton Cosmetics Bag/Pencil Case
7. Kate Spade Bow Paper Clips (how cute are these though?)
8. Bic Mechanical Pencils (my favorite, in a lifetime-supply-size pack because why not?)

What are some of your stationery essentials? For those in school, are you starting your back-to-school shopping yet? What are the best things you've found? 


  1. I'm starting uni next year, Lord willing and ach, you seriously have made me consider purchasing some of them these days. I so want to be organised and fresh for a new start to my uni studies! Especially eyeing that gorgeous 2017 planner.

    :P :D Thanks!

    1. That's so exciting, Joy! Definitely get yourself some fun and pretty paper bits before that fresh start. :)

  2. I LOVE pilot pens ... I'm going to be a freshman in college! Eeep!

  3. Dude those pens are my entire life now and I can't use anything else :P
