Getting emails from Lifeguard Press makes my DAY, getting a box from them makes my WEEK!
There are two annoying things about going to school in DC. 1) It rains a LOT in the spring and 2) No cars = walking a LOT in the rain.
I love starting every year off with a new umbrella, but I'm super picky. The handle has to be substantial. It has to be big enough for me and my backpack, but small enough so I don't have to share (ahem, Georgetown Boy is totally guilty of this). It needs a cover. I like to have the loop thing at the end of the handle. Last, but not least, it has to be cute.
This umbrella totally covers all my requirements!
(It also comes in Lilly prints!)
This is genius. I've seen these reusable snack sacks on other websites, but the Lilly print takes the cake. Little V definitely rubbed off me last year and passed along some environmentally friendly habits. This little pouch is a great replacement for zip-locks. The inside is lined and safe for foods! Don't tell on me, but it will be great for smuggling food out of the dining hall.
I love luggage tags. They make identifying bags so much easier in airports. But what I like about this one in particular is that your information is hidden away behind a flap. You don't really need everyone knowing your cell phone number... unless your bag actually gets lost! Best of both worlds!
I was so excited when I saw this tool kit. The morning before it arrived, I had just been talking with a girl going back for her second year at UVa. We were saying how tool kits never make their way onto college packing lists, but they totally should! You never know when you are going to need the tools, or what you'll need them for (and sometimes it's unconventional), but you will!
The mini size of this tool kit makes even more sense for college dorms, and the cute print is perfect for college prepsters :)
I was really excited to get this! It's so so so perfect. I tend to carry multiple laptops with me, in addition to my regular books and notebooks. This laptop tote is going to help out with the load. It fits laptops up to 15.4 inches, but since my laptops are 13 something and 11 something, they both squeeze in with no problem at all.
The straps are great for freeing up hands to carry stuff (read: coffee) on the way to the library. The front has a pocket that can hold extra things. My external harddrive slipped right in.
I think the new Lifeguard Press stuff is great! What's on your list for back-to-school?
