The Perfect Backpack

For this upcoming school year, I’ve had my eyes on the North Face Women’s Borealis Backpack and for my birthday, I was so happy to have received this one! This backpack has so much storage and compartments to hold school supplies and much much more! I’m hoping to do a “Backpack Organization” post in the future.

The Trendiest Water Bottle

To keep my thirst quenched during school, my go to is my Camel Bak Eddie Water Bottle, but the Swell Bottles have definitely been on my wishlist for school, especially the white one or this magenta one!

——

A Lilly Agenda

I absolutely loved my Lilly Pulitzer agenda last year! It has so much room to write daily to-do’s, but for me, homework! I recommend this agenda to everyone! Plus, there are so many sizes to choose from that works best for you!

My July Faves

Welcome to a new post on Sprinkle of Southern! Through the month of July, I wasn’t really too productive when it came to things I actually did, but I did find some goodies that I always seemed to be reaching for this month, so I hope you enjoy!

Clean & Clear Morning and Night Duo

My face broke out a little bit on my chin and especially my forehead, but when I started to use my Morning Burst Facial Cleanser and the Night Relaxing Face Wash, my trouble spots were no where to be seen in the matter of a couple of days! Trust me, these bad boys work wonders, plus they smell amazing.

Lilly Pulitzer Mini Callahan Shorts

These shorts are A) super comfy and B) super cute!! I am in love with the print and the colors! I’ve paired these shorts with a plain white top from J.Crew and a pair of sandals from J.Crew Factory. Also, they are the same material as J.Crew Chinos, so if you enjoy those shorts then you will have no hesitation loving these Lilly ones.

Burts Bees Vanilla Bean Lip Balm

This lip balm has to be a 10 out of 10, but what Burts Bees product doesn’t impress, am I right?! It is so smooth and being a girl with constant chapped lips, this lip balm has definitely helped with that!

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

This mascara is unbelievable! Do you want volume? This mascara has it. Do you want length? This mascara has it. Do you want color? This mascara has it; this mascara has it all!!  This mascara is so easy to apply and even fix with a plain mascara brush! My lashes are long even with no product in them, but this gives the right amount of everything to make a girl happy about her lashes! My routine has been applying this mascara (in a black color) to my upper lashes and my Clinique mascara (a brown/black color) to my lower lashes and they make great results!!

POSTING DAYS: 

I posted on my Instagram about my updated posting days; I will be posting on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, but that will change when school comes around, but until then, you will be seeing posts on those three days. I will definitely let y’all know when I decide what day I will be posting in the school year.

My 6 Desk Essentials

Hello lovelies and welcome back! To begin, you need the back story… My desk is always the cleanest area in my room, so I’ve found my essentials on my desk that keep it organized and fun! So, I am going to share my essentials that I hope will give you some inspiration for your desk! Let’s get on with the post:

——

Flowers or Succulents

I have both a plant and a succulent on my desk! They can add much needed color as well as a more earthy and alive feel to a simple part of your office or bedroom. Plus, there are so many flowers and succulents to chose from that will give you the right amount of “something” to your room.

Calenders or Agendas

I used my Lilly agenda in school like crazy, but I never used it in the summer time, so I decided to give the organized summer life a try! I try to write in my plans for the month as much as I can because it helps me remember what I have going on each day.

——

Candles or a Difuser

I have a difuser on my desk to keep me relaxed whether I was studying during the school year or just blogging in the summer time! Candles work great as well, I just can’t burn any because my parents think I will burn the house down (lol).

——

Notepad or Sticky Notes

If you’re like me, you write down things like crazy, so a notepad is a must! Plus, you can get any set of notepads and sticky notes for pretty cheap.

——

Pens 

Like I said, I write things down a lot, so how could you write things down without your favorite pen? exactly. I love to have tons of pens or pencils to write down notes.

Storage Bins / Jars

To organize the pens, supplies, markers, and all of the little things on my desk, I use storage jars, which always do the trick! I also did a DIY on the colorful wooden pencil holder, so scroll down to find the link to check it out.
