What’s in my Backpack?!?!

Hi guys! So this post (if you haven’t read the title) is going to be about what’s in my backpack. I have seen a lot of YouTubers doing this but I thought I would add a wee bit extra and throw in some essentials I like to have for school. So without further procrastination (big word of the day Ta Dah !!) let’s get into this post! 

My Backpack! 

I got this backpack from Amazon and the minute I saw it I immediately fell in love with it! I love how boho and relaxed looking it is and it’s so comfy to wear! I’ve had a wee test run with it around the house and immediately missed walking down to school with my friends with a bag on my back! 

 And it’s so much bigger and prettier than in the picture!

What’s actually in my bag πŸ˜‚

So first of all can I just say… ITS SO BIG!!!! AND SPACIOUS!!!! I just love it so muchπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but seriously it is! 😊 When I went to Tescos with my friend, my mum and my wee brother David, we were walking down the first aisle we saw a HUGE section of back to school supplies! Obviously I wanted everything but knowing that it was too much and I have a huge amount of stationary  I settled for a Panda Sharpener (also super cute 🐼)  

    
 I told you!!!                                                 I also bought a ruler that’s a calculator… I mean who is that smart?!?! It’s ingenious (or its just me being stupid πŸ˜³πŸ˜πŸ˜‚) here’s a pic!  

And I love that it is my favourite colour, GREEN! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

The next thing that I got that day was this big Pukka Pad kinda set thing that came with loads of things I don’t need right now but might in the future and that’s why I got itπŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’™ 

 I just need to be prepared but the only thing I will be having in my bag from that set is either the green or blue notepad (you decide tell me which one in the comments)

Now for the pencil Case!βœοΈβœ’οΈ

I got my pencil case and pencils in California and because I love bright colours I loved it! And of Course  it is covered in sweeties 🍭Here’s a picture of my snazzy lookin’ pencil case!  

 It’s from Dylan’s Candy Bar πŸ˜† 

 
I also got a tub for my pack lunch (not that exciting but hey!) it’s got my 2 favourite colours and it came with a water bottle so I don’t have to buy another one for my pack lunch! It fits into my bag really easily and can hold a lot of food in it which is goodπŸ˜‹ 

    
 
Now for the essentials!

I keep all my essentials in the front pouch so it doesn’t get mixed up with any homework or notesπŸ“–πŸ““πŸ““πŸ“ŠπŸ“„.   Here is a pic of all my school essentials πŸ˜‹πŸ‘πŸ˜‚ 

 these are my essentials πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

– EOS hand cream: I can’t remember the name but it’s really good and moisturising for people who have really dry hands like me.

– Vaseline: this is my favourite Vaseline scent, Cocoa Butter my friend actually introduced me too it because she had it in P5 and I used to sit next to her and spend the day bugging her to let me smell it! Sorry Amy! 

– Hand Sanitizer: I actually have this hanging from my bag but anyway! I love this one and I recently got it in California in Bath and Body Works it’s called Caribbean Escape and it is one of my favourites!  

 – A spare pencil: I don’t know about you but I lose my pencils all the time, either if it’s someone has borrowed it and forgot to give it back or even if it has fallen out somewhere and I never noticed but I always have a spare pencil! 

So that’s everything that’s in my bag!       I hope you enjoyed reading my post today and to all you out there who want more BTS posts I will be posting some DIYs soon so be sure to stay tuned! I have made some really cool pencils using washi tape and mod podge .

Have a great rest of your day and to however has gone back to school Happy Back To School! (Even though you might be dreading it!) to make you feel any better I’m going back next Wednesday so I don’t have much summer holidays left! 

BYE! πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’™

 
 

Wake up and get ready the easier and more fun way !!Β 

hi guys! I don’t know about u but I am hopeless about getting Up and then ready to go out on time especially when it is for school. I am super excited about school and I have been researching loads of ways to stay organised in prep for going back in 2 weeks. Yay !!  I saw this idea and knew immediately that is what I need to do. 

I am giving credit to this amazing idea to the wonderful you tuber mylifeiseva. So here it is:

πŸ’œβ€οΈπŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’œβ€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œβ€οΈπŸ’›

Basically you go onto a music app on your phone that u can play through and create playlists with. I am using napster as we have a family account. 
  
The idea behind creating a music playlist is that u make the playlist in a way that u know how much time you have left to get ready  as u listen to the songs. 

Here is the start of my playlist 

  
I have started my playlist with a jump out of the bed and dance song ( well that’s the intention anyway )  and the idea is to know how long each song lasts or eg what song is playing when u have been up half an hour and for a certain time etc, u get the idea. 

  
I am still sorting out my playlist at the moment and will work out how long it is playing for and just generally play around with the order of the songs to get the right morning mix. But I think it is a great idea. Fun one too. We dance around like crazy people in the morning anyway, usually on Mum and Dads bed but I want to start taking responsibility for my time and getting ready so fingers crossed this works. 

What do u guys think?  Do u think it will work, what do u guys do to help u stick to a routine and get out on time. 

Would love to hear from you all. 

Bye

πŸ’ŒβœοΈHandwriting tag πŸ“βœ‰οΈ

Hi guys 

How r u all doing today? I’m having a chilled Monday with my Mum and the cheeky monkey that is my brother πŸ΅πŸ’

Today I am going to take part in a Handwriting tag by the amazing A girl called Egypt. U should go and check her wonderfully cool blog. Www.A girlcalledEgypt .WordPress.com

I absolutely love practicing my handwriting skills, got millions of notebooks that I doodle and write away in. I love looking on Pinterest for ideas,thats my main source of inspiration 

So for this tag I have to answer the following questions in my own handwriting.  should be easy, here goes!!  

Questions

1. What is your name? And your blog name?

2. Blog URL

3. Write: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

4. Favourite quote

5. Favourite song

6. Favourite band/singers

7. Say anything you want

8. Pass it along to a few bloggers
Concentrating hard 😬. 

  
Was getting frustrated earlier as trying different styles and to me weren’t coming out right 😫😫

 
Viola!! Finished questions 

  

What do u guys think?  How do u practice your handwriting skill or do u think its becoming a lost art with the use of touch screen technology, mobile phones etc. I will also love to hear from anyone who writes “snail mail”  its something I really want to do 

So lastly I nominate the following bloggers to do this challenge
