Hey guys! I hope you’re having a great day or night, depending on when you are reading this! Today, I wanted to share with all of you something a little different. I’ve done a post like this a while back. I believe it was about 2 years ago. Anyways, this is a back to school haul! Personally, I won’t be using these notebooks primarily for my classes but mostly to organize everything for ZimmyLifestyle.

Even though I do almost everything on my computer and iPhone; I still love writing things down on paper. My writing on paper is where all the brainstorming for my blog posts are! This haul contains; 2 notebooks, 1 huge paper pad, a folio, my agenda and a couple of accessories. These are all things that I will use to help me get organized for the next few months and for the new year. I somehow ended up buying everything in pastel pink. To me, they just looked so much prettier in pink and more aesthetically pleasing.

(A little disclaimer): This post isn’t sponsored in any shape way or form by This is the brand I decided to buy everything from as I just really like the vibe they were going for.

Pale Rose Paper Pad – $30

While scrolling down they’re website I fell upon this paper pad. I was in need of a big one to brainstorm ideas for anything. This wasn’t specifically for ZimmyLifestyle. Once it arrived I couldn’t have been happier with what I got. The quality of the paper is so nice and it will be a great way for me to create new content.

Small Velour Notebook – $27

If you know me, you know I love everything velvet. From my favorite cake: red velvet cake to velvet chokers to any velvet clothing item and to even stationery items in velvet. Okay… I think you get the point, I LOVE velvet! Anyways, this item is a medium sized notebook that I will probably end up using for my acting classes!

“No Bad Days” Get it Together Folio – $45

Onto something new that I’ve never had before, this folio. So far it has been the best way that I found to keep all things related to my blog in one place. It will be absolutely perfect for when I travel. It will help me stay on top of things and make sure I didn’t leave anything behind! It is very organized inside. It has pockets for notebooks, pencils, cards, an iPad and pretty much anything you can think of (apart from my laptop). I also love the touch of the “no bad days” written across the front of it in electric blue!

“Serious Business Woman” Notebook – $12

I will probably end up finishing this notebook before the end of the year! I loved it so much that I almost ended up buying another with a different cover and with spirals. I am a strong believer that you can never have enough notebooks. Especially these ones which are my absolute fav! I also obviously love the color, since it is light pink… again and I’m loving the cover with the cool quote!

“I am very busy” 13-month planner – $28

How could I do a “back to school” haul without mentioning my new planner!? I saw this planner on Urban Outfitters and ended up going to the Ban.Do website to purchase it since they were already sold-out on Urban. When I was browsing more on Ban.Do I came across all the other items in this haul and went a bit crazy. This planner is so incredibly pretty but also so practical! They have a poster inside, 2 pages of stickers and incredible art covers for each month. I can’t wait to plan everything that this year has to give inside of it! As you can see from the pictures there’s a little “TLZ” engraved in gold on the cover. These are my initials. How cool is that?! They give you the option to personalize your own for $5 extra.

Smiley face tape – $3

I also ended buying this cute little smiley face tape. I imagined it being super cute to stick a ton of polaroids everywhere with!

Tassel paper clips – $9

And last but not least, these little paper clips! I bought this cute little pack with 6 of them inside to help me keep track of the important pages in whatever I’m reading. They’re also super cute with the little tassels.

And that wraps up this back to school haul! I hope you enjoyed these items as much as I do every day. Do you know the brand Ban.Do? Also, do you have a planner like me or do you keep track of everything on your phone? If you have a planner, where is it from and what does it look like? I love planners! Let me know down in the comments below!

Lots of LOVE, as always,

Tiffany Lea
