Back-to-school Haul

Hi, everyone! I really should be starting my homework now since I’ve really been procrastinating since college started.  I wanted to make this post the night before school started but never got around to it, but here it is now!

So, this post is about what I thought I needed for back-to-school.
  • 2 Five Star 1 subject notebooks
  • Where’s Waldo? notebook
  • pink folder
  • mechanical pencils
  • Post-It page markers

The notebooks are really coming in handy. I don’t use the Waldo one though. That one’s just for my collection.

The folder I thought about using for school, but ended up just giving it to my mom to use
The pencils are the only one’s I like that they sell in American stores. I got them from Wal-Mart.
I love the Post-It page markers. They were always kind of on the pricey side, but I got them during the back-to-school sale and there were so many colors so I had to get it.

When I went to the commissary with my boyfriend before school started, these were some things I picked up for school.

The Kellog’s To Go protein breakfast shake mix: Vanila have too much of that protein taste for me. It’s not super bad, but I can’t drink it all at once without breaks. It tastes a little better if you blend it with strawberries and bananas. I also use soy milk instead of regular milk.

The Special K Protein Breakfast Shake: Chocolate Mocha has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. I really like this and if you like mocha flavored things, I recommend this! It makes it so easy to have a breakfast when you’re on the go. Especially when you’re a commuter for college like me.

I bought these to snack on between my first two classes. I personally didn’t like it probably because of the coconut.

LUNA bars are my favorite bars to snack on. The Chocolate Peppermint Stick flavor is my favorite one. I tried the Chocolate Dipped Coconut flavor for the first time and it was pretty good! There’s lots of LUNA bar flavors so you should try them out. I like the s'mores one too.

I bought this 6 pack of Kleenx tissues because I thought it would be a good idea to always bring it with me. The packaging was so cute I had to get it!

That’s the end of this post. Thanks for reading and comment below what your back-to-school essentials were! Have a lovely day.

Would you like for me to make a post about what I carry to school and whatnot? Comment below.

Hello, there! I actually typed this on my Macbook in the car as I was going home from Richmond last Friday.



In my previous post, I talked about my trip to D.C. (to see 5SOS & One Direction), New Jersey, and New York. I go to New Jersey and New York every summer with my family, and that’s when I always do my back-to-school shopping. This year, I didn’t get as much as I did in my previous years, I think. But anyways, check out what I got below!

  • Oatmeal bralette with white lace
  • Navy blue beanie with ears (Like a bear. :3)
  • Floral bikini bottom
  • Ruffled ankle socks

  • Keith Haring T-shirt (I saw this a while ago and really wanted it and wasn’t sure where it was from so when I found it, I had to get it.)
  • Black & white striped baggy shirt
  • Black & white patterned pants
  • Oatmeal high socks with teal stripes

  • Tangerine hand cream
  • Petite Bunny gloss bar (01 - Strawberry)
  • Face MIX Concealer (02)

  • Black Chiyo Top (Back-caged bralette)
  • Sammy Top (Black & white striped crop top)
  • Jada Dress (Red roses dress)
  • Blue tie-dye v-neck (I'm not sure what this one's called lol.)

  • Running shorts

  • Bikini top
  • Daisies bandeau
  • Grey lace bralette
  • Pink lace crop tank
  • Pink hearts thong
  • 2 pairs of leggings (2 different Victoria Secret lines; Victoria's Secret & PINK)
  • Nail polish remover
  • Tweezers (My mom had a pair and they are my favorite tweezers so I had to get myself one.)
  • Hair ties

Thanks for reading!
