Welcome back! Today’s post is one of my favorites strictly because of the cover photo. Isn’t that a beautiful flat lay? Also I just discovered that berry/mauve color is complementary to my mint green that I use and I’m kinda obsessed. Anyways, now that my mini excited rant is over, lets get on to this awesome haul!
Today’s post is short & sweet so I hope you don’t mind.
I don’t know about y’all but I love to watch and read anything back-to-school related. I also love watching and reading haul videos and posts. Combine back-to-school with hauls and I’m sold.

Annnnnd this marks the beginning of back-to-school posts! But Abigail, we literally just celebrated the 4th of July and I still have a solid month and a half before I even start school… Y’all I know, but hear me out because at the end of this post, I have a really exciting surprise for all my amazing readers! Trust me, you’re not going to want to miss this. (Or you can just scroll to the bottom and check out the surprise).
I hope y’all had an amazing 4th of July with friends, family, delicious food, and beautiful fireworks. Today I’m partnering up with Rifle Paper Co. (I know I’m still in shock this is happening) to bring you a post all about my go-to planner for college. Not only is it stunning, but it’s practical, affordable, and effective. I used a Rifle Paper Co. planner for the entirety of my sophomore year (you’ve definitely seen it in a lot of my Insta posts), and I am honestly just as excited to break open this bad boy on my first day of class in August.

College. It seems like one minute I have my life together, all my assignments are in order, and everything’s going well. Then the next minute I have five papers due, three tests to study for, and seven blog posts to write all in one week. Ok yes that may be a bit exaggerated, but that’s what it feels like. And I know I’m probably not alone.
College can be a huge learning curve for some people. It’s the first time you really have your whole life in your hands. And if you’re not careful, things can get out of hand (ha see what I did there?) really fast. But, fear not! It can be easy to stay on top of your assignments! All it takes is a bit of planning and not procrastinating to make sure you never miss an assignment again. Today I’m sharing with you the ways that I make sure I never miss an assignment.

Hello friends! I know a lot of us have already started school or are heading back in a few short weeks which means hello stress, long nights, and endless cups of coffee. That could be your semester, or you could have a stress-free, sleep-filled, exciting semester! I want everyone to have a successful semester with minimal stress because we’re all way too young to be stressing this much about school. Now is as good of a time as any to figure out how to have a great semester.
This post is full of tips from me and other college bloggers across the web. Originally, I wanted to write a whole post about all of these topics, but then I realized it’d be like 3,000 words long and no one wants to read that, nor did I want to spend 3 hours writing out a post. It’s important to start off the semester off right in order to have a successful few months. After all failing to plan is planning to fail. And we definitely don’t want to fail, do we?
Ever since I started this blog back in June of 2015, I’ve written out my goals for each semester. There’s just something about solidifying my goals in a blog post that makes me more likely to complete them. This semester is no different, and the outcomes of my goals have definitely changed since last year. I’m focusing more on improving myself both mentally and physically instead of the social aspects of my life.
I was so focused on school and doing well last year, that I let my mental health fall. Instead of letting myself fall back into that place, I’ve set goals to keep me motivated, happy, and involved. After all, if I’m not happy with myself, how can I be truly happy around other people? Not only am I working on improving myself, I also have a ton of fun things lined up this semester! I can’t wait to see how everything turns out.

Happy official back-to-school everyone! I started classes yesterday, and with every first day of school comes some first day essentials. For those of you who may be heading to college for the first time this year, the first day is super intimidating, scary, and exciting all at the same time. But, don’t fret! I’m here to share my first day of class college essentials because there’s nothing worse than showing up unprepared.
First off, embrace and enjoy syllabus week. Syllabus week is the first week of classes because you don’t really do much except go over the syllabus (hence the name). Your professor may mention the class expectations, whether or not you need the textbook, and other important factors for you to be successful throughout the semester.
Clearly there’s not much you physically need for that first day, but success in college comes from a lot more than just a notebook and pretty pen.
