Ok, term 1 of the new school year is well under way here in Australia. I know a lot of my readers & friends were sending their little ones off to school for the first time this year and some have a older kids returning to school and some of my readers are even still at school. So I thought this post would be appropriate :)
The only person in my family who is now still at school is my little brother (who is actually not little at all - he is actually the tallest in the family), Tristan is in grade 12 this year and has a huge year ahead of him. He is completing a vet assistant traineeship through TAFE & will also be completing the QCS test and plans to attend university next year. I am so proud of that kid, I know he will do great things. But I also know how stressful grade 12 is, I also did the QCS test in 2006, not that I had the pressure Tristan does by no means, but even then I found school stressful & I think preparing for school really helps eliminate stress.
I really liked having my school books all decorated & made to be individual, if you want to check them out click HERE. I know that is maybe more of a girly thing to do, but I found I was more inclined to keep my notebooks all neat & organised if the covers were awesome & pretty!
Of course being organised for assignments & home work is key to having a great school year and also eating well is super important.

A few "back to school necessities" that are also handy to have in everyday life are; a spare house key, a spare pen & a neutral shoe shine.
I find these 3 products are very important, I think neutral shoe shine is brilliant as it can work on any coloured shoe, this colourful spare key is going to be very helpful as my house key & my parents house key are almost identical & I often confuse them both (which sucks when it's pouring rain & I'm fumbling with keys) and a tiny pen I can clip to the inside of my handbag is great for not taking up much room & always being handy!
I hope you enjoyed this post & found it informative.
