University Study Essentials Haul!

Saturday, February 20, 2016

I'm  a complete stationery addict. There, I said it! There's nothing I like better than a cute notebook or some colourful pens to add to my already huge collection! I study full time at university and therefore spend a lot of time using all my study stuff.... which I like to think is an excuse for the rather large pile of new stationery sitting on my bed right now! I hope you enjoy this little haul combined with me showing you the study bits that I think are essential for succeeding at university!



First up is all my writing utensils, which I clearly have a lot of! I received Johanna Basford's Enchanted Forest colouring book that I have been lusting after forever for my birthday, which was very exciting! So of course I had to purchase a set of coloured pencils if I was going to be able to use it! 
I've also been looking out for a big set of permanent markers for absolutely ages, as I use them to make study posters on pieces of A3 paper. My theory is that more colours=prettier posters=more inspired Kate=more study gets done...it works in my head anyway! Anyway I picked these up on an amazing special for $6 when they're usually $24 so I was pretty pleased with myself! 
Next are my beloved Bic whiteboard markers-I love these and regularly pick up a pack as I know that they will get used up before I know it! 
For whatever reason I deemed it necessary that I needed two different types of highlighters this year (keeping in mind I already have a perfectly good set of the smaller stabilo ones!)... so there you have it. 


Ok so I'm sure that anyone else who lives in Australia will join me in saying just how amazing Typo notebooks are. I mean, just look at them! I'm ever so slightly obsessed with all these notebooks, so I bought a travel themed set as well as the Disney themed set (which is SO cute!). These will last me all year so I'm pretty happy! 
I also picked up a set of note cards as I really like to make my flash cards on these-they might not be as pretty but they make up for it in how useful they are! 



Last but most certainly not least are my other study essentials. I am a firm believer that having a good break can make the quality of your study SO much better, so this colouring book should serve this purpose nicely!
This amazing burgundy coloured cardigan is my current favourite thing-it's so loose and comfortable and will be perfect for pulling on in lectures, as our lecture theatres are always freezing! 
My last study essential is this gorgeous candle from Short Story-how beautiful is this packaging! Candles always make me so much more cheerful while I'm studying so I think this is a total essential. 


That's it for my latest stationery haul, I hope you enjoyed it! If you'd like to see my last stationery haul, you can find it here! I'd love to hear what your study essentials are!

  2. Ahh Stationery makes me very happy too I'm glad I'm not the only one! I have Enchanted Forest, isn't it gorgeous? I didn't use it for ages though for fear of spoiling it! (I realise that makes no sense!) That cardi looks so cosy too I think I need to invest in something similar :)

  3. Cute stationery makes it all so much better. Unfortunately, I've been out of university for almost two years and I don't have use for all of it anymore. I still buy it but it gets too much and silly. I'mean so jealous of everyone who caneeds shop at Typo. :D I've been to the store when I lived in the US but now that I'm back in Europe, I don't have it anymore. I love your notebooks. Enjoy using all of it. :)

  5. I havent done a stationary shopping in a such a long time. I remember when i started uni and i did like minimal stationary shopping cuz i didnt want to get too much or too little. So i would only get the necessity, and then do some more shopping afterwards. But like i never ended up doing that since i technically i had everything i already did, and just did something organizing instead. But you ended up getting some cool things! Kinda jealous i didnt do that hahah
