what's in my backpack + my senior parking spot

Contents of my backpack:
  • Binder (w/ DIY sugarskull)
  • Planner (Target)
  • Luna snack bar (drugstore)
  • Pens/pencils (Target/drugstore)
  • Orbit sweet peppermint gum (drugstore)
  • Summer Hill hand lotion (gift, sorry!)
  • Smith's Rosebud Salve (Anthropologie)
  • Body butter in Sandalwood (H&M)
  • Sunglasses (Ebay)
The backpack itself! Same one as last year...ended up returning the Roxy one I bought because I couldn't even fit my binder in it.

Aaaaaaand here's my senior parking spot! The obsession w/ sugar skulls continues.
Thank you a billion times over to my genius artist older sister, Mary, who helped a ton with making it so pretty!!

So my senior year begins tomorrow. Well, almost "today"'s nearly midnight. Probably should go to bed soon...
Anyway, I'm not as nervous as I thought I'd be. Just a little sad, because as much as I despise school, I think I'll miss this place just a tiny bit, and knowing this is my last first day here makes me feel a bit weepy.
I'm excited though! My schedule holds great classes with great teachers and even greater friends. So hopefully this year will be the best yet!
I'm going to be crazy busy though: editor-in-chief of the newspaper staff, creative director on the literary magazine, and an assistant photographer editor on yearbook. I went a little journalism crazy this year....fingers crossed for good college scholarships.

Anyway- for anyone else starting school tomorrow as well, GOOD LUCK!


  1. You can paint your parking spot?! and the skull looks awesome :D

  2. Yay for seniors! I don't start school until next Tuesday:) And your backpack and parking spot are awesome! We don't have specific spots to park in at my school so we can't paint our spot like that. I hope that you have a good first day!

  3. Oh my god your parking spot is so cool, you're so talented at art!
    Love the whole sugar skull theme

  4. Did you draw that skull in the first picture? I also love your backpack :) Your parking spot is so perfect, i bet that needed a lot of patience, but your hard work paid off, good luck with school, just stay passionate, you have one chance so make it your best year (just a word of advice from experience) I'm sure you'll do great.

    Lots of love,


    1. I printed out a photo of an ugly medical skull and doodled on it and added the flowers :') Thank you! My sister helped me so much with all of the pretty designs on the skull, I'm so thankful to have had her help!
      I'm excited for the school year, hopefully it all goes well! Thanks again, pretty lady!xx

  5. You get to paint your own parking spot? CooL!

  6. whoa, you can paint your own parking spot?! that's so cool!! sugar skulls are awesome too ~

  7. Wow, how cute! Everything from your bag and the supplies to your parking spot! Today was my first day as well and it wasn't too shabby! I do despise school as well, but I keep thinking that one day I am going to miss it a lot.
    Good luck to us both during this hectic last year of school!

    1. Thank you! :')
      I older sister is a senior in college this year and she keeps saying how she misses highschool (even when she didn't like it much at the time) and I know I'll be the same! I'm trying to appreciate it while I can!
      I hope the rest of your first week back goes well, and also the rest of your year! xx

  8. love that you can personalize your own parking space!

  9. In loooove with you binder, and the parking space omg!!! Enjoy your last year of high school, it really does go by so quick and is over before you know it, but also know that after high school is also super awesome and something to look foward to!!
