Yesterday I headed off to WH Smiths in a pursuit to pick up some essentials for the next (very busy) year at college. I didn't get too much as I usually stock up on things that I never, ever need or use. I already have a bunch of the frosty lever arch files to use, with an endless stock of A4 plastic wallets.
One thing I was in desperate need of was a new pencil case. I'm very fussy when it comes to pencil cases, that's probably very strange but eh, oh well. I don't like them to be too childish, but not too... boring? I don't like flat ones, and I don't like ones that have different kind of pouches. Tins are far too small. See my problem? But then... this one was staring at me, and I had to get it.
Yup! A gorgeous spangley champagne/gold box shape pencil case. Perfect. A bit of bling that I can bring into the classroom ;) It's also available in black. Just because it's pretty and glittery I think some more photo's are needed to bring out the true sparkle!
I'm someone who loves to annotate my notes and highlight important bits and pieces. I also like my pages to look bright and colourful... I think it helps when it comes to revising. Look at these beauts...
Double ended highlighters in a variety of bright colours. They came in this pack of 6 and one side is your usual highlighter nib and on the other is a fine felt tip end, perfect for writing reminder notes!
You've probably noticed that I like to make studying and learning as fun as I can by finding anything bright and cute, and this definitely fits the bill...
A watermelon pen! Oh god am I one for a gimmick... that dented grip part is actually scented. Yes of watermelon! It's making the pencil case smell b-e-a-utiful. I don't know if they have any other scents or designs, this is the only one I saw, but I might pop back tomorrow!
Sparkle Pencil Case |£4.99|
Pack of 6 highlighters |£2,99|
Scented watermelon pen |£2.49|
So I don't know if you can tell, but I get very excited about stationary! Lol.Surely I'm not the only one? I came back from my spree and started showing the boyf my back-to-school goodies instead of pulling out the new bits and pieces of clothing. He thought I was mad...
Have you been to get your essentials yet? Not long left!
