BACK TO SCHOOL ESSENTIALS 2021

My favorite part of heading back to school was getting my new lunchbox ready and all my back-to-school essentials! My mom would buy me my Trapper Keepers and PeeChee folders, spiral notebooks and #2 pencils! But now, things have been kicked up a notch — and my girls get to peruse all the coolest creative things on the market online!

I can’t even handle how cute these crayons are – and they will get your little ones so amped for school and creativity!

INSTEAD – CARD DECK FOR SCROLLING LESS

This deck is a perfect back-to-school tool. Staying focused and turned inward is one of the hardest parts of getting back into the school mindset. INSTEAD is a simple and affordable tool that offers bite-sized affirmations and activities as an alternative to the distraction of scrolling.

I’m so bummed to have left my copy of The Daily Stoic in my office (which I haven’t stepped foot in since March 2020!). These are bite-size affirmations that get you started for school, for work, for any moment your nerves are working against you. They also make the perfect addition to your coffee table!

INSTEAD is a Black woman-owned brand, manufactured in the USA, printed on sustainably sourced paper and affordably priced at $16 at Inner Workout!

Undeniably the best water bottle on the planet!
It’s spillproof and works as the best coffee or soup mug (keeps it piping hot for 6 hours!), cold water bottle (icey cold for 12 hours) and is BPA free!

JOAH LOVE MASKS

Y’all know my love and obsession for JOAH LOVE – and especially for their JOAH LOVE MASKS! I’ve blogged about them a million times – and even had founder, Ahyoung Kim on my Kimchi + Challah podcast!
Joah Love’s masks are the perfect back-to-school item for those who practice Covid safety! Be chic – be safe!

FIDGET TOYS

If your kids are like my kids, they are obsessed with fidget toys. They’re easy to take anywhere and are supposed to be the perfect solution for those feeling anxious or restless. They also make adorable keychains that your kids can clip to their backpacks!
