Back to School Shopping Must Haves

I've been back to school shopping for my kids for years, but it just doesn't compare to when it's you cracking open a new notebook, sharpening a new pencil, and even picking out a few new outfits (can't hurt, right?!). I CANNOT HELP MYSELF, I LOVE a new bundle of pens and pencils, untarnished folders, and all the little bookish gifts I've been eyeing and finally splurge on.

I am a SUCKER for stylish totes and bags as we head into the school year. For me, I've been in classes since January and kept on all through summer, it's finally time I treat myself. I've been eyeing this messenger bag, but for my book loving heart, I might get this one too! For bookish totes, these are my latest obsession.

I have a constant and endless supply of bookmarks, but these still stand as my most favorite.

As I am finishing the Harry Potter series, I just CAN'T HELP MYSELF with these pencils! I will also splurge for THESE ones too and this for a mechanical when I feel the need, it's so cute! For pens, I've read these are so great, especially as I write notes I don't want to forget and fear pencil wear. 

This standard journal is excellent, but I also love this leather bound one. But of course, I need the occasional spiral-bound, and this is the tried and true one I always pick up and have on hand.

How have I been living without these sticky notes my whole life?!

Has anyone picked their big cozy fall reads yet?! I'll have mine in tow as I head to the coffee shops Saturday morning, and Michaela will have hers.

To get us through those long nights, we aren't going to feel guilty about a strong diverse novel and a custom cocktail from Bad People Book Club. Ardent10 for 10% off your order!

To make up for that cocktail, I'll pick up a fresh new mug for the next morning's strong cup of coffee.
