Back to School | Wishlist Wednesday #1

Hello, my lovelies!
I decided it was time to start a little series. Basically, I have a wishlist/lustlist/buy-it-for-me-now-list as long as my arm for pretty much every possible collection of things. And who doesn't love a visual presentation of things they will never have? *cry cry cry*

One | Two | Three | FourFive | SixSeven | Eight | Nine

Luckily, for once, my wishlist isn't actually out of the realms of possibility. These are the basics and essentials that any student should have for going back to school, college or university looking pretty fabulous. So really, I need to buy them...

Decomposition Notebook (
I fully love this: these gorgeous notebooks are made from "100% post-consumer waste" so are environmentally friendly which is very important to me. Often, recycled notebooks are a bit on the ugly side but these are just so cute. TEA CUPS!! Perfect for doodling during lectures taking notes...

Edelweiss Braid Ball Point Pen (Accessorize)
Okay, it's a pen. Not that exciting. But look how pretty it is?! You're going to be scribbling away in style.

Panda Highlighters (Paperchase)
  I completely rely on highlighters for getting through the vast amounts of boring reading I have to do, and these should bring a little sunshine to my studies. They are so whimsical and happy!

"Brain Food" Lunch Box (
Enough said. We all need a bit of brain food to get us through the day and I'd love nothing more than to pack my fancy lunches (courtesy of Martin) in this box!

Butterflies and Flowers Travel Mug (Lakeland)
A travel mug is literally an essential for getting through the early starts and long days at Uni with copious amounts of tea (or coffee if that floats your boat). This is the prettiest travel mug I have ever seen. *Heart face emoji*

Harrow School Satchel (Topshop)
Going to school wouldn't be complete without a new bag to carry all our pretty little goodies would it? This one is just gorgeous and at £30 I think it's an absolute bargain. It is b-e-a-utiful.

Academic Enchanted Diary (Collins, UK)
 A diary is a must have. Simple as that. An academic one that starts in September with the term is ideal if you're anything like me. A new diary for a fresh start in a new school year is the best thing to motivate me to organise myself.

Peeping Pens (
I'm just obsessed with how utterly adorable these pens are. They come in a range of pastel-type colours so you might as well collect them all, I mean, it would be rude not to, right?

Futile Attempt Fridge Jotter (
I can't even emphasise enough how much I rely on lists to get me through literally everything so this is at the top of my list of must-haves! Stick it to the fridge so you see it all the time then there's no excuse to be an unorganised, chaotic mess anymore, though I'm sure I'll manage it somehow

Hopefully this will help you fight away the back to school blues!

Q. What do you think of my "must haves"? 
Q. Are there any essentials you think I've forgotten? 


  1. Love the bag! My stationary list always looks more like 'notebook notebook notebook notebook notebook colouring pens... calculator??" - not quite as sensible! Have been meaning to do one of these back to school posts, now I just want to get down to Paperchase! xxx

    1. Mine probably should look more like that! Looking through all the pretty stuff is the only thing that keeps me going haha I could spend forever in paperchase, it's dangerous!

    1. It's definitely the high point of the year for me, haha!

  4. Aww how cute are those panda highlighters! I was literally just looking at them yesterday on Paperchase, I think I might have to get them. The notebook is lovely too, reminds me of Alice in Wonderland x
