Back to School was always my favorite time of year. I loved getting new, cute notebooks, folders, and pens and finding out which of my friends would be in my class. Even today, I love new office supplies and find it hard to resist buying loads of new stuff when back to school sales start every year.
So, I'm dedicating this post of some of my favorite things for back to school.
I'm a sucker for multicolored pens, especially packs that have green ones in them. As a lefty, most ballpoint pens are at best infuriating and at worst useless. After handwriting two bar exams (yes, I'm crazy), I've found that these pens write nicely and are comfortable, so they are always my go to writing utensil.
As a magnet lover, I was immediately drawn to this fun calendar. I would have loved this for my high school (or law school) locker. The best thing is that it can be used year after year since you have all the months and dates already.

Oh, how I love notebooks. I could buy a thousand of them just because I like the covers. I wrote all my notes for classes until I was in law school and I truly believe a pretty notebook can make a difference in taking quality notes.
A new school year is not complete without a new bag. Although a backpack is certainly more practical for hauling books, this satchel is too cute and would be perfect for carrying a laptop and a notebook.
Pony Express Stationary
So, these aren't exactly a school necessity, but they are too cute not to include in my list. Everyone needs a nice stationary set, and this set is perfect and oh so pretty.
