August Favourites | Getting ready for school !

August Favourites | Getting ready for school !

Hey guys ! I'm going to start college in a week and it's stressing but exciting at the same time. Last year, I barely went to class so I don't really know anyone (except for 2 or 3 people) so it's like I'm doing my freshman year all over again.

The beginning of the year usually determines how it's going to be so I have to quickly meet some people because I know there will be some group projects... Ugh. I hate group projects. I don't like depending on others and I hope everything will be okay. There's also going to be some oral presentations to do in front of the whole class. I hope I'll be comfortable with everyone by then.

And if I'm not... Well it doesn't change anything, I'm still going to be awesome *cough*. Seriously guys, if you don't like to talk in front of an audience just think that it's just going to be 10 minutes of your lives. Everyone will forget that you were standing there in a blink of an eye, so don't get anxious and do your best ! I once sang in front of the whole class because of an assignment ... And the teacher told me just after that it was "for fun" and not really something that mattered in the final grade... Yep, tough time for me. Guess what ? Everyone forgot about it and I even got some compliments (not because I'm a good singer because I'm really not) !  The thing is, the more you seem comfortable the better. Even if you mess up, keep your chin up and embrace it.

Anyway, let's talk about my favourites of the month. I bought some cool stuff and now I feel more than ready to go back to school.

1. Pencil case

Last year, I didn't have one (I was too lazy to go to the store and I felt like it wasn't worth it since I didn't go to class very often). But now I have one. *Epic music* This is not just a pencil case, this is a commitment. I commit to go to class and be the best student I can be ! *Epic music off*. Too much ? Maybe, anyway, it's cute and I love it !

2. New eyeliner

This is the first time I mention beauty stuff in my favourites. I'm not really the type of girl who puts makeup on everyday. There isn't anything wrong with that, but to be honest, I'm lazy. However; I bought some new products, my favourite being a very thin eyeliner. It's easy to use. I did exactly what I wanted to do the first time I used it, so if you struggle with your eyeliner, you should try this one.

3. My rings


Since the beginning of summer I wanted to buy a couple of rings. Some people need pretty outfits or makeup to feel confident, well I need rings. It's weird but I feel much more feminine when I wear them. Maybe you'll find them too simple but what can I say, I have simple tastes.

4. My Back To School outfit


I couldn't not mention my back to school outfit. I mean, it's important, right ? Okay, not really. And to be honest, I wear this kind of stuff pretty much everyday. I always say that comfortable doesn't mean ugly. I wear men shirts (well, this one isn't) and I'm proud of my style.


That's pretty much all of my favourites for the month of August. Don't hesitate to tell me what your favourites are and if you'd like me to add some stuff in my favourite posts (like what I'm currenty reading, or... anything).

I hope your school year will be good and easy. Good luck to everyone !

Somehow when I was in college, I never had a pencil case...usually I just had a couple of pencils or pens jammed down the wire spirals on my notebooks - or on the bottom of my book bag! :)

I know what you mean when it comes to rings. I don't wear makeup (I've never really gotten interested in the stuff, and my face is extremely sensitive - so it can be supremely uncomfortable to actually find something that works with my skin if I have to wear the stuff) and I don't wear much in the way of jewelry either. I usually have at least one ring on my fingers - current favorite is a wide band spoon ring with a unique design. :)

By the way, I just wanted to let you know that I've nominated you for the Liebster Award! Your blog definitely deserves it!

I never thought of putting them in the spirals :o

It's very hard to find the right products when you have sensitive skin. And when you find them they're even more expensive so it's not really worth it...
It seems good ! I don't know if it's like I pictured (probably not) but it seems cute *.*

Thanks :D
