Back to School Survival Kit~!

Hey Guys~!

I have another back to school post for all of you. Today I'll be sharing a kit of stuff I think everyone should have in their locker. I did a similar post to this last year, so if you want to check that out, {click here.} Of course you can substitute or take out some things, but this is what I like to have either on me or in my locker at school. So let's start~~!

Here's the bag I plan on keeping everything in. I got it in a Clinique set last year. It came with the little matching pouch too and I'll start with what I keep in there first. I like to have this one in my bag, so these are the things I always want to have on me when I'm in class.

Hand Sanitizer
If you’re going to lunch or you just feel like your hands are dirty, it’s great to have your own hand sanitizer. You can buy one just about anywhere, but I personally like this one from Bath and Body Works. There they have tons of different scents, the one I have is Fresh Picked Wild Berries and it smells really nice. They’re small, so they don’t take up a lot of space in my bag.

I don’t really feel like this needs an explanation of why I have to have this with me. But for those of you that want one, gum makes your breath smell nice. If you’re in school, where you have people that you kind of, sometimes, need to talk to, everyone will like talking to you if your breath doesn’t smell like your breakfast or lunch that you just ate.

Lip Balm
Especially in the fall and winter, I love having a lip balm on me. I do get chapped lips easily, so I constantly reapply lip balm throughout the day. There are all different kinds you can get, tinted, scented, etc. But if you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know I love the Maybelline Baby Lips, so that’s what I’ll have with me.
Perfume Samples
I always get perfume samples at places like Ulta and Sephora that I never really use. However at school I don’t enjoy taking a big perfume bottle or anything in my bag because it could break. So having these small samples of perfumes I like is great. I can spray them on after gym or whenever I need a quick, nice smelling, pick me up. The ones I have here are the same and they are the Jo Malone perfume in Nectarine Blossom and Honey.

When you have independent work time in class, I personally enjoy listening to music; to do that I need to bring my earphones to class. The ones I have are some cheap ones from Amazon that I got in a phone accessories pack. Also I like being able to listen to music when I’m working in the library or walking to or back from school.

Now I’ll show all of you what I keep in the larger bag. This one I will keep in my locker, so in here are things that I like having on me, but I won’t need to have on a daily basis or just to have for emergencies. So let’s move onto that bag~~!

Mini Deodorant
I have a gym class in the middle of the day, and I want to smell nice for the rest of the day, so I like having some deodorant on me. This one is a mini, to save space, and it’s from the brand Secret in the scent Ooh La La Lavender. Really any deodorant will do, and the mini ones are easy to find in the travel sections of drugstores.
I won’t need these for the entire year, but for the warmer / sunnier days I like having sunglasses for if I’m sitting outside, walking to and from class, or walking home. Also I like keeping them in a case so they don’t get scratched or ruined. My case is from Omega and I’m not sure if you can get this. My sunglasses are cat eye shaped, and I’m sadly not sure where they came from.

Hair Elastics and Brush
If a hair falls out of place, it’s getting hot, or you’re just having a bad hair day, having a hairbrush and elastics is great. I personally like having these for gym class so I can tie my hair up into a ponytail. I know there are places that sell smaller hair brushes, but I really like this one.

Nail File
I always have the problem of breaking my nails. So having a file on you or in your locker is great. That way if you chip a nail or something, you can easily fix it. This is a generic one, and I think I got it in a pack.

If you are going out after class with your friends, need to buy lunch, or you have a free block, you need to have some money. At maximum I like having ten dollars because I don’t want someone to steal a ton from me or to lose any.

Extra Pens and Pencils 
I don’t know about you guys, but I always lose all my pens and pencils before the end of the year. So I like having a ton of extras in my bag. I just have some mechanical pencils and some colored pens. I love taking notes with colorful pens, since it’s just more fun.

So that’s everything in my back to school survival kit. If there's something that you'd keep in this kit that I didn't include, let me know in the comments below. Thank you guys so much for reading and I'll see you at my next post.
