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.

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.

I hope you enjoyed my desk essentials! See you in my next post.


Preppy School Essentials

School, for me, is an excuse to buy the agenda you’ve been wanting or a new set of your favorite Ball Point pens! So today I have some preppy essentials that will make your the time at school, bright and fun! 


School Essentials

Going back to school shopping for supplies, for me, is an excuse to get the new planner I’ve been wanting, the awesome new gel pens, and to buy basically all of Target. We both have a big list of our school essentials that we could not live without!

 A planner/agenda is our way to write down our homework for the day, notes that are super important, and it gets us super motivated to be more neat and organized. You can find them in Barnes and Noble, Dillard’s, Target, Walmart, Staples, and more!  We have a Lilly Pulitzer Medium Agenda and a Kate Spade Agenda!  
We both have a Jansport backpack for the upcoming school year, and let me advise you…Jansport backpacks are the best! You have a lot of pockets for all of your school essentials, and supplies! Backpacks also help you organize your supplies, and organizing is a must! A backpack is our biggest essential for back to school!

Everyone knows that you can’t go through school without pens and pencils! These are some school supplies that will jazz up your essays and homework! The mechanical pencils are from Paper Mate, the colored pens are from Paper Mate,and the black pens are from Pilot.

Folders and notebooks are necessities to our school essentials and to help us organize! You can get these items at Target, WalMart, Barnes & Noble, etc.  From writing notes to storing essays, these supplies won’t let you down!

Thank you for reading our very first blog post!! We hope you enjoyed it and keep your eyes out for new posts every Sunday!
