Well, it’s that time yet again students. Yes, I’m talking about going back to school. Whether you’re ready to hit the books or dreading the thought of it, I have some essentials and supplies to get you back into the school mindset.  

 Water Bottle  

This one isn’t just a back-to-school essential; it’s a life essential. A person’s water bottle says a lot about them besides the obvious: you care about the environment and want to be hydrated. If you haven’t decided what one you’re vibing with, let me present you with my top 3.   

  1. Stanley 1913: THE ICEFLOW FLIP STRAW TUMBLER for $46.00 BUT SPC+ and SPC members get 20% or 15% off, respectively. (I personally love the cream one)

  3. Owala: Free Sip Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle for $39.99 via Amazon!   


I don’t understand people that think they’re too cool to wear a backpack. First of all, backpacks are cool if you have the right ones. Second, ergonomically and practically speaking, there is no better way for you to carry around a bunch of heavy shit. Whether it’s for school or the gym, it’s a necessity. So, which backpacks are trending at the moment?
