Blogmas Day 11: Winter School Essentials

Hiya guys, Paige here. Today I am doing another essentials post for blogmas. This one is winter school essentials, most of these I have all year but I especially like to have them in winter.

1) Headphones

I have these all year round anyway and there isn’t really a reason why I would need them any more in winter. I have these for when I’m on the bus or if I’m walking on my own.

2) Bobbles and Bobby Pins

If I am am wearing my hair down in winter and the weather is bad, it is likely that it will go frizzy so I need to have bobbles and hair pins for if its really bad. I normally have a regular bobble on my wrist which I use if I want to keep it up all day but if I have dance or PE and need to tie it up I use the bumpy one in the picture as it dints my hair less.

3) Hand Gel

Again I normally have this all year round but in winter it is definitely essential I don’t really want another cold. I have one that smells of strawberry laces which beats the smell of normal hand gel.

4) Lip Balm

I think I might have included this in at least two winter essential posts already but its also an essential for school in winter. In my bag I have the Jack Wills one and it is the rose scented one.

First Impression Review:

On the 11th I opened the 11th door on the Mad Beauty, Beauty and the Beast advent calendar. In this door was a rose scented shower gel. I don’t really like the smell of rose, but as with the hand cream this isn’t too strong and actually smells quite nice.


Also the packaging is really cute and the colour of the shower gel is pretty.

Thank you for reading, I hope this post was helpful.

Bye for now,

What’s In My Backpack 2017/ Back To School Haul

Hiya guys, Paige here. Today I am going to be doing a back to school haul as well as showing you the other things I already have that will be in my backpack. I don’t know when most people go back to school but I had seen a lot of posts and videos like this before I had even finished for school so I know this post could be too late for some people.

My backpack for next year is an Animal backpack that I got from a surf shop when I was on holiday, I can’t remember what the shop was called however you can probably get it online of the Animal website. It’s a good size and will be different to what the majority of people will have.


The next thing I got was a SuperDry pencil case which is a dark blue and is a really good size as with most over pencil cases I’ve had I haven’t been able to fit my calculator in but this one I can.


Next for the things in my pencil case and bag. I get another set of Papermate black pens and a set of sharpie highlighters. I also got some coloured index cards for revision and a new maths set.


The rest of the things that will be in my backpack are stuff that I already had from last year. I have my pink calculator and my pink glue stick (its worth it even though it stains the paper pink). I also have some post it notes and pencils. I also have my two books that I have to learn for literature which are Macbeth and Jekyll and Hyde however I will only take them when I need them.


Thank you for reading,

Bye for now,
