Ready To Start

I feel like trying some new things out to see if can try to write a post every day this week. All over the TV, the  commercials are talking about back-to-school, I'm getting ready right now. I'm such a stereotypical nerd. I feel so fired up talking about school supplies; smooth pens,  the smell of notebooks, finding out the best deals off amazon for my college textbooks, stocking  up on pain medicine for those countless headaches.
Of course, I would never neglect the best part of back-to-school shopping. Here are some essentials to sweeten of the start of the new year.

1. Large tote for carrying around your books, notebooks, pens, pads, or whatever else you can't live without.  I would not buy any cheap bag for the the year. You want something that will last all the bumps. I can't not emphasis this enough that cute canvas tote from Target will not last three months at university. Or if you worry about back problems, check out urban outfitters or ASOS  for cute backpack options.

2. Comfy, Flat Shoes. I understand that some girls have the endurance to wear 5 inches and above all day but dearies think about all those icy steps, possibly running late to class exams or trying to catch up with the hot guy in Spanish, do you honestly think you want to be wearing a pair of Lita boots? I honestly believe that heels are classic and timeless but there's a time and place for everything.  Flats are way more practical for when you have to get across a busy campus in 15 minutes or less. Personally, I plan on getting a pair of TOMS shoes, for the new school year. Also, who can't resit supporting such a wonderful cause.

3. Pens and Paper, it's crazy the amount of time students spend on their computer. It's okay to use for taking notes in big lectures. Rather when in a more intimate class, I bet the professor would gather see their students engaged then staring at a screen. So many beautiful choices for a notebooks, and I really do not need to post any suggestion but here are my favorite pens EVER! So many colors and perfect for small highlights and organizing your day-planner.

I hope some of your girls that are going back dominate the school this year. I'm ready to check out some more back to school basics. It's the weekend now and I'm going shopping!
