Although the thought of returning back to school and school uniform shopping is very stressful, there are a few things I enjoy about starting the new year. For example, buying new stationery, new shoes, and also a new school bag. Therefore today I decided to do a "what's in my school bag". Hope you enjoy...
This bag was out of Primark in the sale for just £5 which I think is an absolute bargain for such a cute, stylish and decent quality satchel! However, at first I picked up the same satchel but in plain brown, and then discovered this one later on in the store. So after ten minutes of looking at the two satchels, attempting to decide which one I would be taking home with me, the monochrome satchel won! These are the main things I would carry with me on an everyday basis around school, and becuase I don't like to carry a lot in my bag I have cut it down to the bare minimum.

I would also usually carry a concealer and a sample of perfume with me but I have ran out of my current ones.
The next thing I have in my school bag is my earphones, for when i'm walking to school or doing my paper round after school. I then have my keys attached to some rather big key rings so I can find them easily in my bag, my iPhone, and my glasses. I would also carry some Nurofen with me in case I got a headache.
I also like to carry a notebook around with me along with a reading book. I had already started reading Looking for Alaska a while ago but then completely forgot about it, however, i'm going to give it another try and re-read it.
I picked up the pink portfolio file in a pound shop becuase I thought it would fit nicely in my satchel (which it did) so I could put all of my school books into it. I thought this was a good idea because when it rains my books always get wet on the way home, but becuase the file is mainly plastic, it should hopefully keep my books dry. It also means I can quickly and easily remove my books from my bag.
Next is my
make-up case pencil case, which was just £2 from Primark which was really cheap compared to an actual pencil case. This was exactly the right size to fit all of my stationary some of which you can read about it my stationary haul.
