Back to School Essentials: College Edition






I hope you all enjoyed my post from earlier this week about Back to School style! I'm getting more and more excited to head back to Richmond, settle in with my new roomie (shoutout to Ashlee!!),  and start the school year! I'm pretty excited for my room this year...I'm still living on campus but I'm going to be in a suite style room with a connecting bathroom to our awesome suite mates! Whether you are going to be a freshman in college or are getting ready to head back to school, I've put together some things that I would consider 'essential' for starting the year off right!

School:
- Agenda - I used this Ban.do agenda all last year and loved it! The size is just right for me and there was plenty of room for all my assignments. I ordered it again in this adorable peony print and can't wait to start using it!

- Desk Accessories - I found myself doing homework in my room quite a bit last year because it was always quiet and comfortable. Since I worked from my desk, I tried to make the space as 'me' as I could. These accessories would add so much personality to any boring desk! ( TrayStaplerPencil Cup)

-Notepad - If you're always writing lists like I am, then you probably have stationary scattered all over your room. I always have a notepad on my desk and this one is too cute to resist!

- Colored Pens + Pouch - I use colored pens to organize my agenda! A different color for classes, clubs, and blog tasks! My sister just ordered this pencil pouch and I'm considering getting it too, it's just so fun!

- Backpack - I always got excited to go back to school shopping, especially the part where I got to pick out a new backpack! I am loving these ones from Madeline and Company. It's a brand I found through blogging/Instagram and I immediately fell in love! The brand was created by a young entrepreneur who wanted to solve a problem while creating a functional, stylish product...and the result was Madeline and Company backpacks

Dorm:

-Decorative Pillows - my bed was one of the only place that felt completely comfortable and cozy in my room so I'm making sure to do the same this year! I love the look of decorative pillows against simple bedding. I recently bought this gold triangle one  but I'm loving this pom pom and 'xo' ones too!

-Wall Decor - I'm going to make these tassel  garlands for our room and I'm nervous/excited to see how they turn out! Hopefully they will add some color and dimension to the room! We're adding some prints to the room too - this Richmond map print would be too perfect and so would these inspirational words!

Diffuser - I'm a huge cable lover and it's such a shame that we can't have them in the rooms! I picked up this diffuser from work in one of my all time favorite scents and I'm excited to use it in our room this year!

Keurig - I don't think I could start the day without a cup of coffee so getting a Keurig was a must! I'm pretty sure I used mine everyday last year and brought it with me in this fun mug.

S'well - Staying hydrated is so important to your overall health and I feel 100x more alert when I'm fully hydrated. I carry my S'well bottle everywhere I go because it keeps the water cold all day and holds more than an average water bottle!
