I don’t know where the summer went, but it is that back to school time of year! As much as I’m not looking forward to not having a life for the better part of the next 9 months, I am pretty excited because this is my Senior year! Regardless of the end of summer blues, I’ve always loved getting all geared up for the school year, so today I’m sharing with you some of my College Essentials to help you get prepped and ready to tackle the school year right!
Back to school fashion is all about having on trend pieces that are easy to throw on and go. I love adding cool details to my looks to make my outfit just that much more special. This classic, vintage style Casio watch is perfect for keeping you punctual all throughout the school year. I love this throwback look, and I know this watch will definitely be a conversation starter on campus this year. Make sure you head here or check out Macy’s to shop this watch!
Ok, usually I’m a huge advocate for the healthier stuff, but sometimes when you’re cramming for 3 exams and have 2 papers due, you need a little sugar high. Good snacks are definitely in my college essentials One of my go-to sweet snacks for those late nighters are Sour Punch, because they’re sour and and sweet and pack a little punch if you know what I mean! I’m loving that they come in this resealable package now so that I can keep them in my backpack for all those moments in class when I need a jolt of something to keep me alert! Head here to grab yourself a bag: SourPunch.com
Speaking of snacks, I am so glad I found this website called EZneeds. It is basically like Costco, but it is all online, and it is so easy to use. This is going to be such a time saver for me this year because now I don’t have to go to a “big box” store and battle the crowds and traffic to get my everyday grocery needs. Plus, you don’t have to pay a membership fee to shop on EZneeds. I love buying things like protien bars and trail mix in bulk so that I have a supply of quick and easy things I can grab on my way out the door to campus. Check out EZneeds and never battle the crazy warehouse stores again!
Alright, I am all about a great home cooked meal, but college can get seriously nuts sometimes, and even thinking about spending time making food and then cleaning up after can be unfathomable at times. That’s why I love these yummy pre-made sandwhiches from Big AZ. You can pick these up at convenience stores across the country and keep on keepin on your crazy schedule without missing a beat, all while staying fed. To check out where you can buy these sandwhiches, head to this link. You can also get a $1 coupon by heading here!
This wouldn’t be a college essentails post without a little self care y’all! You have to make sure you take care of yourself during the school year. One way to do that is to keep yourself healthy even when there’s something going around on campus. I literally hate throad drops, but these flavors from Luden’s are actually not terrible, which means I’ll actually use them! I love that they have watermelon, which is not a throat drop flavor I’ve ever encountered before. The great thing is these aren’t just good for when you’re feeling an itch in your throad coming on but also when you raged too hard at that concert the night before you have to give a speech in debate class. They really help with any sort of throat irritation. You can stock up on Luden’s here! There’s also a coupon code on their site for $1 off of 2 bags of Luden’s.
Speaking of TLC, I found the perfect blanket for those days when you just want to curl up in your dorm and watch Netflix all day. This adorable throw from Viv and Lou is seriously so freaking soft! I have mine in my living room and just love coming home at the end of the day and snuggling up in it. They will also monogram your microfiber throw for you for free if you want, which is amazing, mostly because you can always make sure your roomate knows not to mess with this gem of a blanket. 😉
Head here to grab your super soft throw blanket, and make sure to use my code MissMooreStyle25 to get 25% off site-wide from now until September 30!
School can be full of ups and downs, so another one of my college essentials are great organizational tools. It is important to not only stay organized, but stay motivated and inspired. The Princess Saves Herself In This One is such a great book to have on your desk for this very reason. It won the 2016 Good Reads Choice Awards and is a collection of poetry that will inspire you to be resilient and write your own ending. Grab a copy here!
Another major essential for going back to school is a good planner. I’m loving this Posh Planner because it starts in the fall and ends in early summer, so its perfect for the school year. I also love that its full of inspirational quotes to keep you motivated and reminders to find your happiness. This can be so essential when you’re feeling bogged down with an impossible school workload. Get your planner here and never forget an assignment or event!
