It seems like just yesterday, and we finally got out of school. We put away our books, through away old supplies and went to the beach, or went on vacation, or just stayed home. (Nothings wrong with that. That’s what I did for most of the summer.) But no matter how you celebrated summer, or what you did or didn’t do. Schools coming back and we need to ready. I don’t know if this is strange but I absolutely love back to school shopping. One of my favorite things to do during the summer. No matter what, I’m always super excited about getting school supplies and I would love to share my back-to-school excitement with you so let’s get started.
1. Pencils (obviously) for doing homework, taking test, writing
2. Pens- Black, blue and read: many teachers only allow those colors, you can get different colors to write your personal notes and to write in your planner
3. Filler paper- I personally like filler paper foe homework and things I have to turn in.
4. Notebooks- I like these for writing notes.
5. Binders
6. Dividers
7. 3-ring binder 3-hole punch
8. Folders
9. Composition Book
10. Calculator- 4 function for elementary and middle school, scientific or graph for high school
11. Post-it-notes
12. Highlighers
13. Planner
14. Stapler
15. Index Card
16. Printer*
17. Printer paper*
18. Ink*
19. USB Flash drive
Supplementary Supplies: These are for creative ways to decorate, fo projects and study.
1. Construction Paper
2. Glue
3. Tape
4. Crayons/Colored pencils- whichever you like.
5. Poster boards
6. Tri-fold
7. Decorative paper

* these are needed for high school students more than any other student. If you can’t use these. Go to your school library.

Remember, all school supplies have different designs. Choose designs and patterns that express who you are. If you don’t find any that are you or you can’t afford it, make your own designs, do-it-yourself. It’ll be really fun and you have it your way. Either way, enjoy your school supplies and make this school year fun. As the Hannah Montana song says, “Life’s what you make it, so let’s make it rock” Make the most of this school year, get good grades and make friends. You’re young. Enjoy it!!!

Just got a new bag today and I absolutely love it. You know that feeling you get when you find something you’ve been looking for. You run to it, trampling anyone who gets in your way and when you finally get to it, you cry, kiss and hold on to it for dear life and never let it go. Okay, okay. A little bit of an exaggeration. There was no trampling but I did kiss it and I held on to it for a while. Other than that, I was totally under contol.

This turquoise bag has completed so many of my dream, you won’t believe it. I will wear it as much as I can because it is simply my favorite bag so far. It’s bold color, beautiful shape and multiple compartments makes it so reliable and stylish. It will light up the room no matter where it is. It’s so bright and beautiful it can make the grumpiest grouch happy.

So obviously, I L-O-V-E this bag and will try to add it to as many outfits as I can. Since I want all of you to have this amazingly glorious, radiant, exquisite bag, I’ll tell you that my mom found this at CATO. So go tear down a CATO store right now. It’ll totally be worth it.
*ForeverCollect is not responsible for any demolition of any of the CATO stores. It is totally CATO’s fault for having such a gorgeous bag*

City Sneaks- Canvas Sneakers

image

City Sneaks have been around for a while. There are different types but I really like the canvas sneakers. Cute, simple sneakers you can wear with anything anywhere. On a casual day out in town, to school, at the park or at the mall, City Sneaks can go everywhere and has a variety of different colors ranging from black to white.
Last year, I had a pair of gray City Sneaks. They were my absolute favorite pairs of shoes last year because they were so comfortable. They helped me through those days when the stairs looked too steep and the classrooms seemed too far. They were with me those days when mother nature wasn’t as kind as she could be and the days that I was just lazy. I wore my City Sneaks with jeans, dresses and skirts. They look amazing with shorts and can be worn with or without socks. Sometimes I used them as my gym shoes (it’s not like I did anything in gym anyway). They were always there for me and they will always be there for you.

City Sneaks are very fashionable and cheap. They look similar to a lot of the of the big named fashion distributors like the Keds Taylor Swift rocks but they are less expensive. I got my teal City Sneaks at Payless for $10. The ones that are blue, red, white, gray or black cost $14.99 and the ones that aren’t can be $10( depending what time you go to the store). You can get a fun color for just $10. Isn’t that great?

City Sneaks are a great way to show off your style, too. Each pair of shoes comes with two shoelaces, one white and the other, a color that goes really good with the shoe color. The gray pair gets purple, the black gets pink, the white gets a light blue, and so on. If you get about three or more pairs, you are able to mix and match the colors and style the shoes the way YOU want to. YOU make your shoes look the way YOU want them to look. It’s all up to YOU.

As long as you take really good care of your City Sneaks, they will last a very long time. My gray ones from last year didn’t go through any bad damage throughout the entire school year, only the simple wearing from walking with them. All they need is a little washing from the days I spent walking through grass and dirt but other than that they are okay. I do advise that you wear some type of socks when you are wearing them to make sure they stay clean inside because they do get a little dirty on the inside.

All in all, City Sneaks are amazing!! I love them so much. They have become an essential to my closet because they will go with everything. They are inexpensive, last long and can be styled in different ways. They are fun to wear and are so comfortable. Go down to a Payless, buy a few and style them the way you want to. It is fun and simple, just like the shoes.Make the most out of and enjoy them. Live them up.
