so this is my backpack, its the black fjallraven kanken in the regular size. and i LOVE it so so so much! it looks pretty small, but it can fit a lot inside and it has many pockets and pouches. i have to wear a uniform at my school, so my backpack is one of the ways i express myself style wise!
so here are the items in my kanken…
p e n c i l c a s e – this is pretty self-explanatory, but i have a pencil case with a bunch of pens, markers, pencils, & highlighters!
w a t e r b o t t l e – its really important to stay hydrated during school, so i like having a water bottle in my back pack.
c h a r g e r – this is a must have if you are allowed to bring any devices to your school!
l a p t o p – at my school we can bring our own laptops or use the schools devices. i just bring my one from home.
h a n d s a n t i z e r – another essential because theres lots of germs at school.
s n a c k s – i love having a pack of gum and a bag of chips in my backpack incase i get hungry!
h a n d c r e a m & l i p b a l m e t c – hygiene products are a must bring to school!
e a r b u d s – i sometimes take the bus home from school, so these are a lifesaver!!
i p h o n e – my school isn’t very strict about us bringing our phones to school, so bring yours if you’re allowed to.
b o o k s – pretty self-explanatory, bring binders, notebooks, etc.

Hello lovelies! Since you all (hopefully) enjoyed last weeks favourites post, I decided to post another!
If you guys would like to see more of these blog posts, leave a comment down below 🙂
First up is my ” wreck this journal” for Indigo. It cost $20.99 CAD. For those that don’t know what a wreck this journal is, it is a book with instructions on each page on how to destroy it. I decided instead of wrecking it, to make it more of an art journal. I love this book so much and I definitely recommend it.
Next is my polaroid camera. I have the Instax Mini 8, in the colour of “baby blue” It cost $100 CAD and the images turn out great. The film is relatively expensive, over $1 an photo, but the quality makes up for it. (btw I drew on the polaroid with sharpie)
This highlighter was featured in my “whats in my travel makeup bag” post. This is one of my favourite highlighters I have ever had. It is called baked highlighter by e.l.f. in the shade of moonlight pearls. I absolutely love this amount of shine that it contains. If that makes sense ahaha.
Next up are my Adidas Superstars featured in my summer ootd blogpost. They are really nice and I like that you can dress them up or down. They are also super comfortable and they are simple, so they can go with anything.
I purchased this book light at Indigo, and I absolutely love it. It says “not all those who wander are lost” and it has a clip so you can attach it to your favourite book or use it as a bookmark. I think it cost $12.99, but I’m not 100% sure.
Those are this weeks favourites!
Thank you so much for reading.

Hello lovelies! Since I am on holidays, I decided to share whats in my travel makeup bag. These are my go to makeup items, and most can be purchased at your local drugstore.
This is my travel makeup bag. It is a pretty magenta colour and is very plain and simple. I’m pretty sure I purchased it at Urban Outfitters a couple years ago, but I’m not 100% certain. I am probably going to buy another one soon, because this one is pretty old.
The first item is the Fit Me Powder by Maybelline New York. I use this on a daily basis and I love it so much! I use it to set, and it leaves your skin looking matte and even. It costs $9.99 CAD, which is a great deal.
The next thing is the by e.l.f.. It comes with a pink blush (left side) and contour/bronzer (right side) They are both of great quality and I really recommend e.l.f. products as they are very cheap. It cost $4 CAD.
I use this e.l.f. concealer on a regular basis. It provides full coverage and is of great quality. It cost $3 CAD and I purchased it in the shade “ivory”
The next item is the baked highlighter by e.l.f. in the shade of moonlight pearls. This is such a great highlighter, but I ended up using a q-tip to apply it because I forgot my brush. Haha.
I have several eyeshadow palettes, but this one is by far my favourite. It is the Tartelette Tease Clay Palette (REVIEW) I bought this palette for $30 CAD at Sephora and I absolutely adore it!
Next, is the Collossal Volume Express Mascara by Maybelline New York. This is my favourite mascara and it works so well. It makes your eyelashes look so much longer! It cost $11.99 CAD.
I use this beauty blender. It is plain black and works really well! It is pretty simple and there is not much to say about it.
I brought these three makeup brushes. The first one (far left) is for my brows, the middle one is contour and blush, and the last one is also for my brows.
The final item is this eyelash curler. I bought it from sephora and it is silver.
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed!
p.s. I forget to take a cover image, so I decided on that one haha.
Last night I stayed up late, perched on my window sill, watching lightning light up the sky. It’s funny how something so small and simple can make me so happy. The low rumble of the thunder was calming, almost reassuring. I sat there, gazing up at the sky, waiting for a bolt of lightning to strike the earth. I love how the lightning is small, yet so powerful as it lights up the night sky. When I was in Italy, there was a huge thunderstorm. Believe whatever you want, but I swear there was at least one bolt of lightning every three seconds. I watched the storm with my family from the balcony of our hotel. I remember how the lightning lit up the sky and how we counted how many bolts we could see at once. Since our hotel was on a mountain, we could see the whole entire sky. It was so amazing and for me, one of the most memorable moments of the trip. That is when I first became fascinated with storms. Over the year, I have spent hours watching them.
Sorry that this was a shorter blog post. Hope you enjoyed!
