We seriously can’t believe it’s August! Like most summers, this one flew by, and now we’re realizing that we have so much to do before September rolls around. So, we decided to get a head start on our back-to-school shopping by making a list of our top five must-have products.

Cute Pen Set

With cute pens like these, you’ll always be on point… no pun intended! Seriously though, what’s better than looking good and feeling smart?! We don’t know about you, but when our desk supplies are fresh and new, we feel on top of the world. Not to mention, these pens by Poppin are luxe gel ink, so they write smoother than anything you’ve ever used! We’re basically obsessed with this brand when it comes to office supplies, so you should definitely check them out if your desk needs a pick-me-up before the school  year rolls around!

Shop Poppin Pen Set

Clear Vinyl Pouch

Speaking of pens, we have the perfect place for you to store them… in the Don’t Need You pouch! Instead of simply tossing your school supplies in your oversized bag with the rest of the “sh!t you don’t need”, store it in your pouch within your bag. The extra layer of protection will do wonders. Not to mention, it will make it much easier for you to find the smaller things amongst everything else! We’re still fawning over how insanely cute they are! As you know, translucent bags are very on trend, so this one will fit right in! The Don’t Need You pouch should definitely be used by the daring girl who’s not afraid to give everyone a glimpse!

Chic Reusable Water Bottle

We love this product because it will help you to better your body, the environment, and your style all at once! BKR created these reusable glass water bottles in all colors and sizes so there are tons of styles to chose from. Not to mention, the use of glass instead of plastic is extremely eco-friendly, so you can feel good about the product you’re using! You can simply throw this in your school bag and refill it throughout the day.

Multi-Use Portable Charger

You didn’t think we forgot about the Beauty Bank, did you? This product is an illuminating compact mirror that serves as a portable charger for your Apple or Android device. It’s the perfect summer accessory for the on the go girl who wants to stay fresh and powered throughout the day. While we keep our beauty banks in our bags all year long, we find it especially useful during the busy fall months when we’re constantly out and about. So, you’ll never have to worry about your phone dying when you need it most. As long as you keep your Beauty Bank in your bag, you’ll be all set!

Trendy Monthly Planner

Lastly, if you’re anything like us, you absolutely can’t live without your planner! It’s the perfect time of year to buy a new one, because most agendas are August-August. We found this Bando brand planner and we can’t get over how cute it is! Because let’s be honest… girl bosses are VERY busy. So, makes sure to get your hands on one of these ASAP. You don’t want to overbook yourself!

4 Uses For Our Clear Vinyl Pouch

New Product Alert!

We’re so excited to introduce our newest product: the Don’t Need You clear vinyl pouch. With tech accessories and sunglasses under our belt, we’re ready to venture out further into the world of fashion. So, we wanted to create an accessory that’s both useful and trendy! As you can see, this bag is completely see-through, exposing all of its contents. Not to mention, the quote printed on the front is too real: “A BUNCH OF SH!T I DON’T NEED.” This bag comes in two variations, one with a pink zipper and one with a standard black zipper. We’re completely obsessed with this new product, and we want you to love it just as much as we do. So, we decided to create a list of just a few ways you can use this clear clutch!

#1
Use it at the beach

 With our headquarters right near the ocean, we always have beach on the brain! When designing this clear vinyl pouch, one of our first thoughts was that it would be the perfect beach day accessory. There’s truly nothing worse than finding sand in every crevice of your stuff, so we found the solution. Simply throw your phone in your Don’t Need You pouch and it’ll be protected from the sand at all costs! Not to mention, you can use this to store sunscreen or tanning lotion so it doesn’t leak onto your other things.

#2
Use it during travel

Next, on the topic of leaking lotions, we thought our vinyl pouch would also be the perfect travel accessory, especially to store shampoos and conditioners! It’s pretty much the perfect size for most full-sized shower products, making it the ideal way to isolate them from your clothes in your suitcase! In addition to this, you could also use the Don’t Need You pouch to organize your clothes when travelling. For example, you could store your delicates in this pouch to separate them from your shoes and other items. And, since the pouch is slim, it won’t take up any extra room in your suitcase, so you can totally pack that extra outfit!

#3
Use it as a night-out clutch

When these pouches arrived in the office, we were seriously fawning over how insanely cute they are! In fact, we decided that they would even make a cute going-out clutch to bring to the bar! As you know, translucent bags are very on trend, so this one will fit right in! The Don’t Need You pouch should definitely be used by the daring girl who’s not afraid to give everyone a glimpse!

#4
Use it to protect your fave accessories

You didn’t think we forgot about tech accessories and sunnies, did you?! The Don’t Need You pouch is the perfect place to store some of your more fragile things. Instead of simply tossing your sunnies or beauty bank in your purse with the rest of the “sh!t you don’t need”, store it in your pouch within your bag. The extra layer of protection will do wonders. Not to mention, it will make it much easier for you to find the important things amongst everything else!
