Preparing for School

School starts on Thursday, and I could not be any more excited! Of course, a new school year means shopping for school supplies! Personally, I love school supplies and shopping for them. 

Usually, I stock up on plain spiral notebooks and devote one to each class for notes. However, the choices are getting pretty bad--I wish I could buy pink for every class, but I need to be able to differentiate between them--so I turned to my beloved Etsy to find some cuter options! 

I found Lucky Paper Company, which specializes in fine paper goods, and ordered two personalized notebooks from them! The notebooks are super cute, and they can be personalized with your name! Of course, anything personalized sounds perfect to me! 

The white part is where my name is!

 These are the two notebooks I ordered, a gray chevron notebook with my name in hot pink, and a gate pattern notebook in citron green. I am in love with these notebooks! It was a hard choice, because all of Lucky Paper Co's notebooks are so cute! Here are two of my other favorites:

 This notebook reminds me of Missoni! 

This notebook is so elegant and simple!

What do you all think of these notebooks? If you're interested in spicing up your school supplies this year and buying one of these notebooks, you're in luck! Emily, the owner of Lucky Paper Co, has extended my readers a 10% discount from now until September 10th with the code stuza8Ut! 

Another supply I needed this year was an iPad sleeve! Once again, I turned to Etsy to find a cute monogrammed one! I ordered one from iselltshirts, and I'm obsessed with it!

My parents made me put this ugly case on it, so if it drops, it doesn't break. Even with the case on, it still fits into my sleeve! I'm so obsessed with it and cannot wait to show it off at school!

I also love the iselltshirts shop! Look at some of the cute stuff they sell:
Tiffany-inspired Otterbox!

Another cute sleeve
Monogrammed coasters!
Have y'all gotten all of your school supplies yet? Hope you have a fabulous Friday!
