a few things I don't think I could live without

There are a few things I need in my life to function and without them I'd probably be a hot disorganized mess.

Eucalyptus Spearmint Stress Relief lotion, thank the Bath&Body Works gods for making this. Yes it may really not relieve my stress but I like to think it does. Whenever I put it on my hands I cant stop smelling it. And I put it on at night and it helps me sleep.

CO. Bigelow Mentha Lipshine or any other CO. Bigelow chapstick/lipbalm/mango butter. I love that stuff so much it almost replaces my mango Burts Bees chapstick. In fact I carry both a Burts Bees chapstick and CO. Bigelow chapstick all the time just so I have a choice in what I want depending on the day.

Fine Tip Sharpie pens, genius, Im obsessed to say the least. They are basically the few pens I write with. I use them to write lists, cross things off my lists, in my planner, the list goes on. I have one black one in each of my school bags at all times.

I think I could buy stock in post it notes and be a successful person. Theyre what I write my to-do lists on, last minute notes to myself and in textbooks for extra reminders. There are also one of these in each of my school bags. One day I forgot to replace a stack of post it notes and I was seriously lost in class. Maybe I'm a little too obsessed with them.....

Finally my index card notebook for my culinary classes. For my two culinary classes this semester (foundations of baking and culinary arts) I have to have the recipes with me at all times. These notebooks are great and just the right size and easy to tear cards out if I need to.

Also not pictured, my iPhone. It's like an extended limb of my hand. I do alot of stuff on there and if I left at home or lost it I would probably cry and be a lost child.


  1. love all these necessities! i love, love post it notes and recently discovered the sharpie pens. why have these nuggets of genius been kept from me for so long? and yes for bath and body works, every single thing from that store reminds me of my childhood and makes me smile:)

  2. Love this post! I definitely would love to try that lotion from Bath and Body works! Maybe I could feel a little more stress-free with it. :)

  3. Post-its are ALWAYS essential.

  4. That's a great list! Sharpies and Post-Its are essential:)
