So, we’re half way through summer (where has time gone?!) and the thought of back-to-school makes my son hide under a rock but not my daughter. Recently, she’s hit the stationery craze, spending her free time creating DIY bullet journals. To her, this is serious business, as she’s become very particular with her stationery supplies. Her journals are colourful and show off her personality, as she loves perfecting her penmanship and drawing skills.
We recently attended a Back-To-School event and received a super awesome goodie bag from Staples Canada filled with today’s on-trend back-to-school supplies. And it appears that my daughter is on point with one of the top trends for back-to-school — vibrant colours. She loved using the colourful Papermate Inkjoy pens for her journals and is looking forward to creating a desktop organizer using Poppin accessories. When shopping for back-school, think fun, bright colours as everything from pens to sticky notes, markers, desktop accessories and even computer mice are in on this trend.
Another huge trend are emojis. Kids and even adults love to add the cute emojis to text conversations. We fell in love with the Merangue Emoticon Locker Magnets, which are perfect to help brighten up drab looking lockers. For the boys, the Zipit Grilltz Backpacks are subtle yet screams attitude and personality. The Jansport Superbreak Multi Stickers Backpack will be a huge hit with tween girls this fall.
