Hey everyone! Today I am going to be sharing some things that are essentials for school and make school a little bit better and happier. These aren’t just for school, they could also be for work or just everyday life. Please follow me if you aren’t already, and enjoy!
1. Pack It
The first thing is this Pack It lunch box. This is so handy for packing lunches, because the lunch box freezes. You don’t have to use all of the space for an ice pack, you can pack more food lol. This will help you stay healthier, because you can pack your own lunches and bring whatever you want.
2. Emergency Bag
Next is an Emergency Bag. Basically take a small makeup bag and then fill it with whatever you think you may need. Things you can include are: pads/tampons, ibuprofen, powder, makeup wipes, gum, hand sanitizer, dry shampoo, hair ties, protein bar, mini deodorant and perfume. That way you don’t have to worry about any emergencies that might happen to you at school.
So you might be thinking books??? Yes books. I remember sometimes a few years ago in class, when I would finish my assignments or just have a break between classes, I would pull out a book. It would be enjoyable to me and also the teachers aren’t going to come tell you to stop reading lol. It is also good for when you need a break while doing homework or studying. Instead of going on your phone and getting distracted, just take a reading break. This is the book I am currently reading it is called Altered, I really like it. You would like this if you like sci-fi books or adventure/action books.
4. Watch/Apple Watch
Next is a watch or an Apple Watch if you have been considering that option. Having an Apple Watch is so nice during class because you can sneakily respond to any emergency text messages. You can also check the time and other things discreetly. It is also nice for when you are studying you can respond to texts without getting tempted my anything else. A normal watch is also super nice during class, because you can check the time without having to search the walls for a clock and look rude.
5. Great Playlist
I don’t know about you but I love to listen to music in the car while I am driving to school. It helps me feel more awake and happy when I listen to music. I also like to listen to some songs from my favorite musicals so I can sing along. If you don’t think this is something you would like, just try it. Thats what I thought at first, but now I love to listen to music. If you find that music isn’t your thing, you can listen to free podcasts during the ride.
Because the school year can be quite stressful during times and can cause a lot of people to get anxiety (myself included) it is SUPER helpful to write things down. I tend to get really stressed and just ball it all up which makes me feel really bad. But once I write everything down thats worrying me or that has happened I feel so much better.
7. Water Bottle
Most people don’t drink enough water which can slow you down during the day. Having a water bottle (or a new water bottle if you already have one) can help you drink more throughout the day. It is also helpful during school to have one with you all the time. If you drink a lot of water, it can help you stay more focused, your skin, your brain, and tons of other things. Personally I really like Hydro Flasks or Swell’s because they keep your drink cold or hot for hours. They also last a really long time.
Next thing that is handy for school is natural makeup in a cute bag. If you don’t have time in the morning before you leave you can use this emergency makeup kit at school or work. You can also use this kit just to touch up your makeup throughout the day. I like to include things from Glossier because their makeup is meant to be applied with your fingers. You can put concealer, lip balm (with a tint), setting powder, mascara, and lipstick. You can also pack some mini makeup or scent samples that you never know what to do with.
9. Comfy and Cute Clothes
You also NEED comfy clothes that are also cute. I have noticed that when I wear cute clothes I feel a lot happier and also more confident, but being comfortable is also important. Some of my favorite things to wear are jeans or leggings, with a sweater or T-shirt and vans. I also love comfy big cardigans during the winter or fall. Jewelry makes an outfit look more put together and fancy, so add some jewelry to an outfit that looks plain or too casual. Another one of my favorites for being comfy is vs Pink’s No Wire T-shirt bra. They look like a normal bra under clothes, but they are so much more comfortable. This sweater from Forever 21 is super soft and comfortable but also really cute. I added this rose gold necklace from Aeropostale.
10. Keurig or Coffee
Finally you need coffee or whatever drink you prefer. I like coffee and tea, so I make it in my Keurig. Normally I make my coffee the night before, so I don’t have to do it in the morning because I like iced coffee. So I make the coffee and then put it in a mason jar in the fridge. Then in the morning I add my sweetener and syrup and then put it into a different cup to go. There are other things you can drink to wake you up in the morning, like tea or infused water.
haha you get a bonus list with little things that are essentials too 🙂
- Glasses or sunglasses – so people can’t see your eyes if you look tired.
- Scrunchies – to give you that messy pony tail look
- Jacket – to put in your car or locker
- Hat – to put together a sporty outfit or to hide your face
- Coffee Cup – preferably cute to wake you up happy
- Cute supplies – to keep you motivated to work and use them
- Bottle – to disguise your coffee if you can only drink water
- Umbrella – for the rain
Those are all of the school essentials I could think of! I hope you enjoyed this post, please like and comment if you did! Thank you so much for reading!!! ❤ -Briana
