Well maybe for some people school started last week but still I hope this post it&rsquo,s helpful. I had a lot of experiences with backpacks through my highschool years and now in college/ university. Beauty makeup supply.
For me the most comfortable way of carrying all my necessities is a backpack and not a bag, here is why:
- Backpack are comfortable and have so much more space
- They come in all shape and sizes and are customizable.
- Easy to wash and a little less expensive.
- No pain on your shoulder or arm because of the heaviness of a bag.
Now for the reason of the post, this for me are the essential things you should have:
- Notebook/iPad: for taking notes and searching in class.
-Journal: for the important dates and thoughts.
-Stationary: Pens (Stabilo, Pilot G2, Muji, Zebra, Staedtler), markers (Sharpie, Zebra Mildliner), washi tape, erasers, sharper, mini stapler and pencils.
- Book of preference: this will help to kill time through your free periods. (Mine right now is Inferno by Dan Brown)
-Water and energy: Remember to carry your bottle of water and some snacks for boosting your energy like energy bars (personally I like Nature Valley), blueberries, cranberries, some cookies, etc&hellip,
- Bag of makeup: I&rsquo,m no the kind of persons who likes to have this item on her bag but it&rsquo,s a life saver for emergencies, in it I have: compact powder, the lipstick or lipbalm, mascara, Kleenex and tiny container (like those round of Nivea for creams or balm) with Vaseline, this odd container with the Kleenex will help you if you have a smudge mascara and even if you made a mistake with your brows.
-Headphones: for studying, canceling noise or just simply killing time with good music or audio book.
This is what i carry on my backpack, believe me it&rsquo,s so much easier if your use one and not a bag for example: I have a friend that loves her Nine West giant bag and use it for school but she complains about the weight of her things (laptop included), yes bag are pretty and make you look girly but they are a pain in the ass and you don&rsquo,t want pain or marks on your shoulders specially on those long days.
So my advice girls is if you don&rsquo,t feel comfortable with a backpack like Jansport or Kanken types find a Instagram one like this ones, comfort doesn&rsquo,t mean ugly.
I hope you found useful this post guys, I would love to know what is in your backpack or bag 🙆,🏻,✨, and exchange tips.

A while back, we created a post that covered the different beauty products worth investing in, and I thought it would be fun to do a drugstore version to showcase the tried-and-true products I&rsquo,ve been using for years. A majority of my beauty supply shopping is carried out at drugstores like Walgreens, CVS and Duane Reade, and so over the years I&rsquo,ve tried an absurd amount of products. I&rsquo,ve always been somewhat of a beauty supply junkie, and I used to find it difficult to finish a product (like lotions and chapsticks) before I found myself running out to the store to try another. Obviously this behavior was not budget friendly, and so I&rsquo,ve learned to weed out my impulse to buy something because the packaging is nice, and replace is with more productive behaviors. Now, I only go to the drugstore once a month when all of my products have run out, and I need to replenish my stock.
It look me a long time to figure out which products I liked, but now that I know which ones work best and yield consistent results, it will be tough for other items to supplant these long time favorites. Although I do splurge on items like mascara (I haven&rsquo,t found a drugstore mascara I like better) and fancy eyeshadows for special occasions, the products below are part of my daily go-to routine. Take a look below at the 10 drugstore items I swear by.
I&rsquo,ve tried MANY BB creams in my day but the coverage, smoothness, and quality of this one cannot be beat. It&rsquo,s not too heavy or cakey, and it has a hint of sheerness to it which makes it great for your summer beauty routine.
Freeman Feeling Beautiful Charcoal &, Black Sugar Polishing Mask &mdash, $3.99
I couldn&rsquo,t believe how inexpensive and effective this charcoal &, black sugar polishing mask was. The girl behind the counter recommended I try it, and the Allure beauty seal of approval convinced me. I usually leave it on for about 10 minutes and then scrub it off to reveal fresh glowing skin that is super soft and supple feeling.
Studio 35 Beauty Cocoa Butter Lotion &mdash, $7.49
Of all the store-brand bottles of lotion this one is my favorite. It smells like the beach, spreads easily, and dries quickly, so it doesn&rsquo,t leave you feeling sticky or gross. I highly recommend this brand if you have it available in stores nears you.
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner &mdash, $7.99 and NYCX Wonder Pencil in Nude &mdash, $4.49
No joke, I have tried nearly EVERY variety of liquid eyeliner at the drugstore. It is my beauty staple, and I usually won&rsquo,t leave the house without a swipe of it on my upper lids. This is the brand I swear by because the brush is perfectly thin enough to achieve the cat-eye look. The color is very dark and not watered down, and the liner almost has a gel-like consistency. I then use the nude eyeliner pencil on the bottom which opens the eyes and makes them look wider. I&rsquo,ve tried a lot of different eyeliners from Sephora, and this one is my favorite.
This is a great summer lip color that goes on smooth and doesn&rsquo,t smudge. Although it&rsquo,s matte, it doesn&rsquo,t feel too dry on your lips, and it glides on easily without requiring any lipliner. The color above is called &ldquo,Standout.&rdquo,
Studio 35 Beauty Oil-Free Makeup Remover &mdash, $7.49
Before I go to bed each night I make sure to take off ALL my makeup. Trust me, this is a step I do not skip, as my skin is prone to breakouts. I could be stumbling home after a night of heavy drinking, and I&rsquo,ll be damned if I slip up my pre-bed beauty routine that consists of make-up removal, a face wash, and moisturizer.
I always moisturize with this Nivea lotion before bed. It&rsquo,s super soft and light, and is a product I&rsquo,ve been using for years. This little pod is perfectly sized for carry-on bags for when I travel, and lasts up to about three weeks. A little goes a long way, so the $1.29 price you pay for this is well worth it.
This Ology brand soap is a relatively new discovery, and I&rsquo,ve been using it for about the last year and a half. I love it because it smells like hEaVeN, and the bars are entirety natural. No harmful chemicals, no plastic beads that make you smell like a bon bon, just real ingredients packaged in a beautiful hand drawn label. My heart <,3.
St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub &mdash, $4.49
As someone who has combination skin, it&rsquo,s been difficult for me to find a face wash that cleans my skin but doesn&rsquo,t leave it feeling dry. I&rsquo,ve tried nearly every face wash at the drugstore and a wide variety of ones prescribed by my dermatologist, but this one is my favorite. It smells great, minimizes my breakouts, and leave my skin feels super clean.
Although everyone has their preferences for makeup and beauty essentials, if you&rsquo,re looking to try some great products that won&rsquo,t break the bank, the items listed above are a great place to start. (FIY all thoughts/opinions are entirely my own and no one is paying me to say this)
If you&rsquo,re a guard captain (or just the mom friend in the guard), someone&rsquo,s gotta have a mom bag. Sometimes it&rsquo,ll be your instructor, sometimes its up to you. So here&rsquo,s my master checklist for my personal mom bag. Feel free to use it as a guide for your own.
Sally beauty supply makeup case
- TAPE (I bring black and white, for flags and weapons)
- Ibuprofen or Tylenol (only over the counter!!)
- Fingernail Polish Remover (our instructor doesn&rsquo,t allow any polish)
- Cotton balls or cotton pads (for the polish remover or other things)
- Disposable toothbrushes
- Extra gloves (if you have them)
- Everyone&rsquo,s phone numbers (these can go in your phone of course, just make sure you can contact everyone you need to)
- Change or small amounts of cash (for food mostly)
Dress your dresser
Where fashion meets functionality
The vanity area is undoubtedly the most favourite space of every girl&rsquo,s bedroom. We spend hours sitting in front of the dressing table each day putting on a little something here or a little something there, combing those tresses and having our own little moment of self-love so it is only fair that our dressing tables look the part too.
It does not take much to prettify a dressing table as long as you keep it decluttered and organized. Instead of hiding away those elegant makeup supplies display them on clear acrylic containers or mason jars and bring a nice pop of colour. It will also make life easier for you as you won&rsquo,t have to scour through your drawers to find that lipstick that perfectly matches your dress when you are getting late. Store your cotton balls and q-tips in cute apothecary jars and ditch those ugly plastic containers. Look for storage containers that double as decoration too.
Flaunt your jewellery collection by storing them in classy glass cases. Repurpose those small china bowls from your old broken set to store your rings or watches. Buy a gorgeous bust and hang your necklaces from it to keep them untangled. Experiment with new storage ideas because your statement necklace on display can get your dresser some major style points too.
A dressing area is a very personal space and make sure your dressing area screams you. Incorporate your personal belongings like your photo on a gorgeous sterling silver frame or your favourite quote framed. To bring a hit of freshness keep some fragrant flowers on vase. Decorate with your favourite trinkets or souvenirs from your last vay-cay to remind yourself of the good times when you are frowning over that pimple on your chin on date night. Make a space that not only screams but breathes you.
