Well, it’s that time of year again! Time to get back to those busy schedules, bury yourself in piles of books, and pull those horrendous all nighters. Yes, that’s right, classes are back in session!

In just one short week I will start my senior year of college here at GVSU, and part of me is still in shock because time has gone by SO FAST! To celebrate, I decided to create a three part Back-to-School series for all of your college needs! Since my favorite part of going back to school is shopping for all new supplies, I will be kicking it off today with the perfect, and much needed, essentials for starting your year off strong!

I love the new Watson Lane backpack by Kate Spade, not only because it is sleek and classy, but it’s durable too! I made the mistake of having a backpack that wasn’t water resistant in my earlier years as a college student, and it just so happened that every time I forgot my umbrella, I would get dumped on by the pouring rain while I walked across campus. Needless to say, I won’t be making that mistake again!

I am also obsessing over the new Beats Solo3 headphones! They’re perfect for those long study days in the library, and they also come in a variety of colors. I was so torn between the rose gold which is pictured above, and the yellow gold. They are both swoon worthy!

As for the Erin Condren life planner, I love that it can be completely customized to your needs. There are tons of styles and layouts that will be perfect for any student! To view a few of my other favorite planners, check out my post from last Fall here!
