Fresh Start

One week from today I'll be back on campus, back with my friends, and back to the classroom. Now if you ask me about school, I'll reply lets not think about it, but secretly I'm really excited. I'm taking very few classes this semester, but they're all major and career oriented so I'm really excited. Plus I start with research with one of my favorite professors & am absolutely jazzed about the opportunity. To get prepared for the new semester I've compiled a small list of things that will help start the semester with success. Or in other words, a few of my favorite things, school edition. 

I received this Vineyard Vines whale tote over Christmas & am so excited about using it! I only have one class each day, so using a tote bag is much much easier for me. This beauty has a zip top, and multiple pockets. 

Staedtler pens are my favorite. I was a fan of the sharpie pens for the longest time, until I discovered these in our bookstore on campus. They are super fine and don't bleed at all!! Plus they come in all sorts of fun colors, which helps my color coding OCD. I always look forward to adding fun events in my planner with these pens.

My water cup. I realized toward the end of last semester I tend to drink more water if theres a straw, don't know why I just do. And over the break between the extreme cold outside, and heat of the stores I've felt very dehydrated. So heres to drinking more and more water to keep me going through the day. 

These are a few things I love to use everyday while at school. 
What do you like to use? I'm always looking for new ideas. :)


  1. Awe, I love your tote! So cute! I can't go anywhere without my vera tote and wallet. I like really bright bags so it fits me well. Hope you have a good weekend :)

    xo, Jenna!
