College Staples.

So today's post is all about my college staples. Now I officially don't start college till tomorrow and trust me, I am absolutely terrified but today I thought I'd put together some items that will be my college staples and will be items I will have with me at all times when I am at college. I get that most of my college 'staples' will be the obvious, lanyard and bus pass and pencils and notebooks but these are just a few items that I think will benefit me and be important.  

So I have my Stabilo Fineliners - These will be an essential for me so I can make pretty and bright notes in my new notebooks and are just a bit better than a standard BIC pen, not that there is anything wrong with BIC pens. My fineliners cost me £6 at the time but they've probably gone down in price since so I may have to invest in some more as I did buy these last year in Scotland for when my exams started and I used them so much during my exams and I could do with treating myself to some new ones. They are such good quality and yes, you may pay a bit more for them but they are totally worth it.

Then this is my pencil case which was £0.99p from B&M Bargains. As you can see it's full of stationery; pens, pencils, a ruler, highlighters and much more and so it basically has everything I will ever need in college. The pencil case is super easy to clean and is very travel friendly and it certainly will be a college staple for me because I will have it with me at all times.

Then I have my *Classy Sheffield (34mm) Rose Gold Watch by Daniel Wellington. It is an absolutely gorgeous watch and will just be a nice staple for me, as I can wear it on my wrist and it will go with everything. It's so comfy! I've been wearing it every day since I got it. I'm not going to talk about this in too much detail as I did a review post on this here - so if you would like to find out more, you can just read that post. This retails for £159.
Also, Daniel Wellington have kindly provided me with a promotion code so that you can get 15% off the Daniel Wellington website until September 15th. All you have to do is use the promo code; theperksofmeg in the checkout and you will get 15% off your order.
The final college staple I have to share with you are these *Peppersmith Sicilian Lemon & Peppermint Mints. I love these mints as they are travel friendly, taste different (but are nice) and are sugar free and have health benefits for your teeth. These will be so easy to just chuck into my bag and get one out when I need one. A full review of Peppersmith products will be up on my blog as soon as possible.
As I said, these are just a few of many items that are going to be college staples for me and I thought I would share them.
What are your college staples?
