IN THE MORNING: College Supplies List

Now I know if your a freshman you might be thinking I need all this stuff and I have to buy x y and z

BUTTTTTTT I’m here to lessen your worries

I have a list for you that’ll blow your mind and I promise you this is all you will need for college (pinky swear)

Now some of these items might change depending on what you prefer but more likely then not this will be all you’ll need to survive your 4, 5, or 6 classes

I want to tell you guys and gals a back story about how I got to this list; I promise its short

So in my freshman year I forgot to staple a paper before class started and if you know professor you will know that they do not like the corner folded and will probably not even accept your paper

Knowing this I ran to every classroom and friend asking them for a stapler to which everyone told me they did not have one

Eventually I found one and saved myself of having to look at the professor with a staple-less paper but I realized and almost scarily realized I needed a stapler

I eventually realized over the years too that I did not need as much notebooks as I thought I did and I prefer instead typing on my laptop

SOO on to this list now like I said things might be interchangeable or not needed but thats up to you and how you like to go to school

I will also say this is just whats in my bag so this will include some beauty and other items that are in my bag.

College Supplies List:

  1. Backpack or Purse– personally I have a big purse from forever 21(not the exact one but similar) there are also these two (zara1,zara2) that look very similar to mine. I tend to carry a big bag because I have lots of stuff
  2. Pens, pencils, highlighter (one or two) and for a little splurge nice color pens
  3. A PLANNER I put these in capital letters because a planner has saved my life and they’re just BOMB. I got mine off of amazon  but this is there website also bloomdailyplanner.
  4. 5 Subject Notebook-I kid you not this will last you the whole year. I prefer using a computer most times but sometimes you just need a notebook or professors do not like laptops out.
  5. I also have a makeup bag where I put my pads and lipsticks pretty much everyday essentials. Here are a few that are super cute bag1 and bag2 .
  6. a STAPLERR– yass yeah its essential get it. You could save a college kids like I got mine from the dollar store and with a stapler you need staples too.
  7. Phone and computer charger– soo many times when I needed it and it wasn’t there
  8. Folders and Post its– I lived off of these one year and survived but the reality is you need folders and post its.
  9. small umbrella- Too many times has it rained and I have had zero umbrella. I got mine from target heres a few umbrella1(my umbrella it has bad reviews but I love it have had no problems with it),umbrella2 and umbrella3
  10. mints wipes and aleve– Mints can wake you up from a boring class, wipes for when you have to go number 2 in school(mine are from costco) OR you just need them and Aleve because you never know when your going to get a headache and if your a girl cramps
  11. WATER BOTTLE this is ESSENTIAL you will always need water and its good to have id your parched I usually just get a pack of nestle pure life water from Walmart but you can also get a water bottle from target swell1 and swell2.

IN THE MORNING: Home is where the Heart isΒ 

A little back story so I was watching this documentary called the minimalist(its on Netflix btw) and it really did open my eyes and give me a change in perspective

They essentially talk about how we usually collect all this stuff most of which we don’t use or has no value to us and how we can de-clutter our lives and have happier ones as a result

I immediately went through my clothes and took out items I knew I wouldn’t wear and decided to donate them instead

But I did minimal things here and there because I do believe you can still have decor in your house that means something to you

Five item essentials to make your home and you(obviously) a little brighter and better:

  1. This Himalayan rock salt lamp is a must have for your room or living room. When my mom first bought this I was a bit skeptical but when its turned on and you touch it, you immediately become calm. It can clean the air around you and can be used when doing some meditation. Its not too bulky so it won’t take a lot of space in your house. Also its 16 bucks which is a steal (compared to reg price)!!Screen Shot 2017-07-31 at 8.57.09 AM.png
  2. On the subject of Himalayan salt, there is also a cutting board which seems pretty cool and can also give a lot of flavor to your food! If your a foodie and love to cook this is definitely something to try out in a house or over the grill. I suggest getting the tray as well since the himalayan salt can get dirty. This retails for 30 dollars.Screen Shot 2017-07-31 at 9.11.07 AM.png
  3. Blankets are probably one of my favorite things in the whole world and because of this I keep a few in the living room for myself and guest. I like really soft cozy ones but that can be affordable. Target is a great place to get your monies worth without putting a hole in your pocket.

    Items above by number: 1. 2. 3. 4.

  4. Candles!! They smell so good and can give you a relaxing vibe (if your in the mood). They also can give your room a cute look without being overwhelming. I personally love candles in my room. Just remember to turn them off. I usually prefer candles in jars.

5. Last but not least some plants or flowers are great to give your place a cute look without spending a bunch of dollarrss. Remembering to water a plant is sometimes a hard job but seeing it grow is actually really rewarding. You can get flowers and plant seeds at your local store. Down below I’ll show some of my favorite flowers/plants.
