Now, i'm one of those people who absolutely dreads getting up at 5:30 AM five days a week & going to a place filled with people i don't particularly enjoy (school, ahem), but i have to admit i love shopping for school supplies - folders, notebooks, pencil cases..the whole lot. I mentioned on Twitter about a week or so ago that i wanted to share all the goodies i got for the coming school year, and i got a surprising amount of people who wanted to see as well!
This may not help those of you whole are already in school (i hope it's going well for those of you who are!), but i thought i'd go ahead & share anyway. I got all of the school supplies mentioned at Target, besides the bag which i bought at Forever 21. I hope you all enjoy!
This year (i'm a junior if you're wondering :), i wanted to infuse my school supplies with colors & cutesy things - compared to my supplies from last year, which were dreary & quite plain. I want to be able to have these things kind of brighten up my day a bit, because i don't know about you, but school can put quite a damper on my day.
I'm also a folder & notebook person, i don't really like lugging around bulky binders with looseleaf & a mish-mash of papers sticking out of them. That being said, i got a folder & notebook for each of the classes i needed them for (all but orchestra & gym). I tried to get the folder/notebook for each class to match (or at least go together) to organize me a bit more, but to also make them cute of course :). I also got what i call a 'take-home folder' (because i'm still in elementary school at heart haha), and this will hold all my extra papers, as well as my homework for that night. I would've gotten an assignment notebook as well, but apparently my school is supplying them for us this year.
Yesss, a Michael Jackson notebook! I knew i just had to get it when i spotted it.
I'm going to get totally hated on for having a Hello Kitty folder..mhm, people at school just don't know when to leave others alone! Whatever ;).
This last notebook/folder set, by the brand 'Greenroom' are made with paper containing 70% recycled fiber & printed with non-toxic soy-based ink..love.
The 'take-home' folder i was talking about earlier, as well as a pink 4 GB flash drive & a flashy pink glitter pencil case (only about $3!).
A closer look at said pencil case ;)
And of course to store all this & more in, you need a fabby bag. This one, as mentioned before, is from Forever 21 and was around $34-$35. It's massive inside, where it has two open-pockets & one zip-pocket, and it also has a zip-pocket on the outside. This bag came with a detachable longer/adjustable strap as well.
I don't use the same bag for school everyday, i do switch off bags for school depending on my outfit, but the more bags to choose from, the better! And i didn't have a tan/nude color bag so... :)
Of course along with getting all the necessary supplies for school, i went back-to-school shopping for clothes as well (several times, haha :P), which i might do a separate post on ♥
Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend so far..last one before school starts for me :(
Let's all make this school year a fun, yet productive one, hmm? :)
