Back to school supplies haul! *groans then shrugs and smiles*

Hello lovelies! How are you on this fine day? I hope you’re doing wonderful 🙂

It is officially that time of year again, time for SCHOOL!!! Haha, if you’re anything like me, you dread this time of year, when our summer break fun is cut short and you have to start again with the daily school work. Depressing isn’t it?

anyways, let’s cut the depressing stuff!

One of my favorite things about going back to school is school supplies. The inner pal pal in me loves all things stationary or paper and pretty notebooks and etc. Well, I started school on Monday and the Friday before, we went school supply shopping! I didn’t need a ton of new supplies but I needed a couple notebooks and I’ll always take more pens if I can ge them 😉 Anywas, now let me show you what I all got!

Here’s an overview of everything! Now let’s get into more detail 🙂

First off, some basic notebooks! Last year I went with the black, minimalistic, aesthetic look but this year they had this ADORABLE yellow notebook, and I fell in love.

These are some of my favorites!! I adore the grid print, it’s in right now and I don’t know why, but it just makes me happy. Especially with the minimalism of the black and white, it’s all just modern and minimalistic and I’m happy about it :))

Next, tabs! Tabs are my favorites, you can most definitely say I am a tab-er. I’m obsessed and I love to put tabs on everything but no hate, they’re helpful! I think my guide has close to ten tabs, i’m a little overboard 😂 #sorrynotsorry

Ahhhh pens 🤩 Although these are technically markers I think but still. They’re pretty awesome! I’ve had some of these before and I loved them and this time is no different! They write super easily and smoothly which I love because a lot of times, when I write with a regular pen, my hand starts to hurt so fast! But, with how easy these pens are to write with, my hand doesn’t hurt until I’ve written for a good 3 hours 😉

Last but not least, STICKERS!!! These stickers are the bomb.com, I got them because they were super cute and when I tried them out in my guide/planner, they sadly didn’t fit my dream. But I still adore them and can’t wait to use them in my bullet journal!


Folks, that is all for today!! I’m going to try and have my bujo post up by Thursday so keep your eyes open for that 🙂 I’m finally starting bullet journal posts again so im very excited. Sorry for not telling you guys that I was taking a break from them but the summer just got very very busy and I couldn’t. But now I’m doing them again so be ready!!!

When do you start school? What kind of school supplies are your favorites? What are you doing for school this year, homeschool, in-person or online? I hope you enjoyed and talk to me in the comments, I’d love to chat!! 💛

HanjiKraft happy mail surprise kit review. *my socks are blown off*

Hello my lovelies! Today I’m back with another review, and believe me, this is a good one! If you’re anything like me and have a huge obsession with anything pen-pal-y, snail mail-ish or stationary things, then you’ll love this. The sweetest girl, Karen Kim, over at her Etsy shop: HanjiKraft, sent me some of her beautiful products and I could talk about them forever. and ever and ever. First of all, let’s get this straight: I have only good things to say.

Karen was the sweetest to work with, super fast with shipping and replying, very good at communicating and really generous and kind. I recommend her shop so much, and all the products are wonderful quality.

Now, instead of listening to me rant about how much I love the stuff, I’ll show you it.

Warning: It’s pretty awesome and you’re going to want to go buy it so be ready with your money 😉

First off: WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT PACKAGING?! *Heart eyes for years* It’s so gorgeous and perfect and I wish I could package stuff this perfectly!

Karen sent me this adorable little keychain that so reminds me of myself and it says “hahahahahahahhahahahanope.” It’s absolutely adorable and so super handy for clipping onto your purse or backpack!

SO. CUTE.

When you open the larger package, this is what you pull out. *Internal happy squeals* It’s so so so so beautiful; it just makes my inner pen-pal-er so happy 🤩

And guys. Get this: the whole time I was opening this I was just like “wow okay. ahhhh it is so pretty!!!!! AHHH!!! SO PRETTY! Like howwww… awwwww! I can’t even”

So in the above picture shows an adorable notebook and the hello friend thing is actually like this envelope and it unfolds and inside it has MORE STUFF 🥰

When you unfold the envelope thing, inside it had some lovely plant stickers and an adorable little envelope full of what is labeled as “bits and pieces” and girllll it’s almost the best part of the package!

Inside the “bit’s and pieces” envelope, there’s lots of stickers, cut-outs, mini envelopes, and stamps <333 Lot’s and lots of little epic things 🙂 I was grinning so big while opening this ❤

Last but not least, we have some paper ephemera!! I received some old book pages, some cute tissue paper, and more 🤩


And that’s it for this review! Please please go check out Karen’s shop, it’s so adorable and the prices are so good for all that you get! If you struggle sometimes with decorating envelopes or making your snail mail cute, then this is definitely a shop to check out!

Thank you once again to Karen for sending me something from her shop, she’s an angel!

I hope you enjoyed! What is your favorite part of this post? Do you snail mail/pen pal? How’s your day going? I hope it is going great 🙂 And talk to me in the comments, I’d love to chat!

Hello wonderful human! I hope your day is going as amazing and you are. Please remember you’re loved and valued.

The rules:

•Thank and link back to the person’s blog who tagged you! Liberty, thank you so much for tagging me! I had seen this tag floating around and it looked fun so I was hoping I’d get tagged somewhere along the line 😉 So thanks! •Thank and link back to the person’s blog who started the tag! (aka Beth at Beth in Boots if I did my research correctly haha! Thank you for creating this tag, it’s super fun <3) •Write about eight of your favorite things in your post! •Add at least 2 pictures or gifs in your post that is related to your favorite things. •Tag eight people at least! (If you don’t know eight blogs to tag just tag as many as you can) •Put the eight rules in your blog post! •Include the picture above for the beginning of your post! •Have fun!!!

Okay, onto the post! Here are eight of my favorite things, and just for fun, since its summer right now, I’m going to do 8 of my favorites from this summer/recently! Now, let’s go!

  1. Coffee

Coffee. Enough said 😉 But I’ll expand, just for you and because I want to. This summer I became WAY to addicted to coffee, I’ve started drinking coffee once and sometimes even twice a day 😳 This summer we’ve been making cold brew and it’s so good *yummm* What kind of coffee do you like?

2. Sunflowers

Sunflowers. are. so. cool. 🤩 This summer some person that lives by us decided to host a sunflower festival and it was so cool! I ended up going twice with my friends and it was loads of fun! I even got some really cute sunflower socks to wear with my birks and I love them 🙂 What’s your favorite kind of flower?

3. Confirmation

I went through confirmation this summer to be confirmed to my church and it was all around a great experience. I learned a ton, met some new people and had a great time ❤ I had classes for two weeks, get togethers/parties and it was so fun. Definitely one of my favorites!

4. Spontaneous things

This summer, since COVID happened, I figured we wouldn’t be able to do much. But my friend Danielle has her license and we ended up having a great summer. Even though some stuff couldn’t happen. We did spontaneous hikes up a mountain, spontaneous drives, spontaneous buyings of whole tubs of ice cream, and even spontaneous Christmas sleepovers in August! Shameless plug 😝 But anyways, throw the word “spontaneous” in front of any adventure and I’m up for it :)))

5. Snail mail

please excuse my messy editing xD

Snail mail is featured on my blog quite often as it’s a large part of my life. I have 10+ pen-pals and I try my best to write to them consistently. It can be hard but some of the best times are when you go the PO Box and you have a couple letters waiting for you 🤩 It’s the literal best!

6. Going to the lake

My family goes to our local lakes and rivers quite often during the summer and it’s always a blast. Paddle boarding around, tanning in the sun, hanging out with friends, eating “lake” food, and swimming is always so fun ❤ Do you have any fun lakes or rivers by where u live?

7. Ice cream!

Ice-cream is always a good idea. I hope you agree with me xD Unless you’re dairy free, then I understand your reluctance to agree with me 🤪 But I’ve ate a lot of ice cream this summer and I don’t regret it. Also one thing we’ve got a bit this year is lasso bars, and they are SOO GOOD. Go buy some pleaaseeeee 😘

8. The setting sky that lasts almost forever

Where I live, the sun doesn’t set in the summertime until 9 or ten on especially lucky days. I love it usually, because I love being outside playing volleyball or softball at like 8:30 and the sun is just setting, it’s amazing ❤ and the sunsets are always so pretty!


And now, that is all! It’s definitely not all of my favorites, two of the bigger ones I didn’t add are my friends and family, and I’m so so thankful for them ❤ I hope you enjoyed, this was a fun tag 🙂
