10 Back To School Essentials: Collaboration with Rose Touch

It is that time of the year again. You know what I am talking about, right? The biggest hint is in the hated S-word in the title. Before you close the page, I want you to know, that I am trying to make this at least 3% more interesting for you. Remember, I was in your shoes at the time (still am, but my going back to school looks a bit different now). 
I remember I had mixed feelings about going back to school every year. I hated it because that obviously meant the end of my favourite season: Summer. But on the other hand,  I kind of 'digged it'. It was for the same reason as why I love Mondays: I adore new beginnings. And the 1st of September (3rd or 4th if we were lucky) definitely leaks of new beginnings: new teachers, new faces, now stationary stuff and new experience slash knowledge. Call me a nerd, but I was genuinely interested in most subjects at school. I had good grades (except at Math, because who gets good grades at Math?!) and my biggest tip for that one is: be a listener. Also in real life, but especially at school. You'll be surprised. The biggest 'focus-destroyers' are definitely smartphones, so I would recommend you keep them in your bags for 45 minutes (if any of my classmates or teachers are reading this, I am sure they are rolling their eyes out at this point because I was the queen of using technology during lessons and not only was that unrespectful towards the teacher, it was also bad for me, because I didn't remember sh*t from that lesson while scrolling through Instagram). I am gonna stop the rambling now and show you, how you can bring some fun into your exciting beginning of 2016/2017:

The jars are from E.Leclerc; 2,40€/each

The first thing after waking up is (should be): hydration! Make it fun with using those pretty jars: fill them up with lemon juice and water and add some mint leaves! So yummy and good for your digestion, skin, bloatedness etc. This is a wonderful way to kickstart your day (omg I can rhyme!).

You can get these deo pump sprays in Muller for around 4 €/each
Keep yourself fresh with CD Deo Pump Sprays: my personal favourites are the waterlily and the new, orange blossom ones. These products are not tested on animals and are silicone and paraben free. So if you are looking for something 'less aggressive', this should be a good pick since it is dermatologically tested. Another bonus: the size of it is perfect for your bag so you can take it with you and keep yourself fresh throughout a stressful day.

I feel like this one is pretty much self-explanatory. No one likes chapped lips and even though I am a bold-lipstick-kinda-gal (the bolder the better!) I always keep one (or three) of those on me. Can you guess which one is my favourite? :)

You can get this palette at your favourite drugstore for around 13€

This Maybelline New York: The Blushed Nudes palette is my latest discovery. I simply adore it. You can create very subtle and natural looks which are appropriate for school. Heavy make-up should be reserved for evenings, parties etc. You simply can't miss with this one. Of course, you are beautiful without make-up and this shouldn't be a priority, because school is far from being a runway, so only put make-up on if you enjoy the process and look at it from the creative side.

Check out the Babushka notebooks here (click)

Can you tell I am a notebook fan? Actually, I am a fan of planning. As much as I love when the best things happen spontaneously, I need to have the feeling of keeping things under control. I do this with writing, most of the time in several notebooks for various topics: my schedule, blog, health&fitness, personal diary etc. Yes, writing is my thing! I recommend you get one of those cute planners and start jotting down important dates, tests, oral examinations etc. Nothing can surprise you anymore because you are a well-prepared badass!

You can get those muesli mixes at: www.nutrisslim.com or at Interspar or E.Leclerc.

The importance of breakfast: you have to fuel your body and prepare your brains to function properly. Never skip your breakfast. You can even prepare it the night before, so if you are in a hurry, you'll have no excuse. You can also take it with you and eat it on your way but I would recommend sitting down properly and have some me-time while eating your breakfast. For me, breakfast is a sort of morning meditation.

Get your own Macaccino at: www.nutrisslim.com

Speaking of breakfast, what is breakfast without a hot beverage? Personally, I am trying to ditch coffee so this Macaccino is a perfect substitute. Think of creamy cacao or the Dolce Gustos' Chococcino taste. Heaven! You can also  take your coffee to-go and sip it on your way to school (not really recommended during lessons, some teachers really can't stand it. Oops).

Snacks, snacks, snacks. These are my holy grail which fuel me while paddling through a long day. Lately, I love to snack on coconut chips (you can get it here). Instead of regular chips, chocolate and other processed stuff, I would recommend healthy and mindful snacking (keep in mind that nuts are high in fat and consequently, calories; a handful is perfectly enough).

Books?! You might think I went mental with this one and it is perfectly okay to think so. Because I do and will recommend books forever. I know you have a shitload of boring literature to read during your school year and you sure as hell don't need any extras. But I do recommend you to read. Read something that feeds your soul. As controversial as it sounds, this will get you through your other, boring literature. Because you will still look forward to your reading time and won't immediately connect it with snooze button.

Last but not least, don't forget to include some physical activity. If you know me, you could kind of guess that I would recommend something like this :). This way you will take care of several aspects of well-being at the same time: with physical activity, you will clear your mind, activate your happy hormones which consequently leads to good results in almost every area of your life. Even grades! And also, get enough sleep. Yes, this means no midnight Facebook parties. But that's what holidays are for, right?

I hope you liked this post and found some inspiration or maybe even a new routine. I am happy to announce that this post was a collaboration with Neža from Rose Touch Blog.
