7 Back To School Essentials

Here are seven non-essential items I think are essential to have for back to school!



1. A Good Water Bottle
I am someone who can not live without a water bottle during the school day and those days that I do forget a water are absolutely miserable because we all know that I would rather die from dehydration than drink out of the mono infested school water fountains. Now that I drive myself to school I will be keeping a case of waters in the back of my car for days like that. I love my Lilly Pulitzer Swell bottles which sadly, were limited edition and are no longer sold. But I do love this Swell water bottle (and a monogram sticker would look really cute on it). If you don't want to spend the money on a Swell Walmart sells Swell look-a-likes for under $10, I also found that Tuesday Morning has cute inexpensive metal water bottles.

2. The Perfect Backpack
Having a good backpack that is roomy but also screams "you" is so important! It's important to have a backpack that has enough room for all of your stuff and is good quality. In the past couple of years I have been using Jadelynn Brooke backpacks and I love them!

3. Chapstick That Actually Works
Chapstick is a struggle for me. My lips are always chapped and I hate it. I recently started using Burt's Bees chapstick and it actually works! My favorite one is the medicated one but my dad purchased it for me and can't remember where he did so I have no clue where you can buy it but if you find it somewhere I recommend purchasing it.

4. A Comfy Jacket
I talked about this in my Back To School Wardrobe Essentials post but had to share it again. Jackets are so important during the school day because if your school is anything like mine, you will freeze your way through the day without one. My favorite jacket for school is this fuzzy North Face.

5. An Emergency Kit
Whether you're in need of a ponytail holder or lotion, an emergency kit is good to keep in your bag. In mine I keep chapstick, tissues, makeup remover, a small brush, ponytail holders, bobby pins, lotion, perfume, and hand sanitizer.

6. A Good Pair of Headphones
At my school we have had a bring your own device policy in the past couple of years where you can use your device in class to listen to music and things like that and in the upcoming year we will all have laptops at school so headphones/ ear buds are a necessity. I'm not one to spend a lot of money on headphones just because I don't think the quality is much better so I use Lilly Pulitzer ear buds that I received for Christmas or the ear pods that came with my iPhone.

7. The Perfect Planner
I have talked about the importance of a good planner many times on my blog (you can click here to read about a couple of the planners I've tried out and you can click here to see how I've organized my planner in the past). For me a planner is an essential for back to school just so I don't forget everything I have going on in my crazy life.

Those are a few of my back to school essentials I hope they helped you to prepare for the new school year! You can use my code SLMHS for 15% off the Jadelynn Brooke items I mentioned in this post.

My 21st Birthday + XOXO Dining Room Review

Last month I celebrated my 21st birthday at one of the most Instagramable restaurants in Dallas! If I were a restaurant, I'd definitely be XOXO Dining Room. From the pink building, to the picture-worthy garden, to the DJ's music selection, it could not have been a more perfect place to celebrate my 21st.

I did some more shopping but honestly are you surprised? My Step mom, MB and I went to TJ Maxx in search of some Lilly Pulitzer at a good price and I hit the jackpot! And I took pictures in the dressing room to do another try on! 

5 Tips for Buying Lilly Pulitzer on a Budget

Within the last couple of years I have really fallen in love with Lilly Pulitzer. I love the fun bright prints and how I stand out when I wear them. My Lilly collection isn't very big but I would like to think I own a good amount. I'm always asked how I can afford so many Lilly Pulitzer items and the truth is, I can't. If I were to buy all of my Lilly items in a Lilly Pulitzer store I would be so broke. By now you should know I'm all about finding great deals and that's my secret to affording Lilly. Here are my top 5 tips on getting Lilly Pulitzer items at a great price!

A Day at Crocodile Encounters

In my  Spring Break Recap post  I mentioned going to a petting zoo and that I wanted to do a post about the adventure and that's what I am sharing with you today! The petting zoo was actually an alligator petting zoo that had other animals as well. The place was called Crocodile Encounters and it's near Houston. I must say that it was a bit sketchy (it was in some one's backyard!!) and I was a little bit nervous going in but it was a ton of fun! When you get there you enter through the gift shop where you can buy crocodile food that you can throw to them and lettuce you can feed to all of the other animals so we bought some to feed the animals. We didn't spend but a couple of hours there because this pale girl was quickly burning and I didn't want to be the color of a lobster the next day. And don't forget you can click on the pictures to view them larger!
