This post is sponsored by Babbleboxx to share some fun college essentials. All opinions are my own.
I was driving around my college town this past weekend with my mom and was like, “wow, there seems to be a lot more older people around here than usual…” Then in dawned on me. It was move-in weekend and classes start this week! It’s funny, because I thought it would hit me that I graduated once the time came to go back to school, but I still don’t feel any different! I even got a little rush of anxiety for a hot sec thinking that I actually was going back to school soon!

Butttt good news is that I put in my 5 years and am out in the real world… but don’t cha worry, girlfriend. If you’re still in college I’ve got tons of college goodness for you in these blissful parts. 😉
Today, I’ve teamed up with Babbleboxx to talk about a variety of products that might make your time at college extra blissful, exciting, or whatever ya wanna call it!
Before we go on, I think it’s fair to mention that as I’m writing this post I’m extremely slap happy. 😜 Might be running a little short on sleep right about now…so I’m chugging this Diet Coke I got from McDonalds.
Okayyy I digress. So with school starting, let’s talk about what came in my Babbleboxx! Babbleboxx is kinda like a subscription box, where you know the theme of the box, but not the contents inside. Rather than allowing anyone to receive one, they work with influencers who’s community will be best for the products. So today, I’m gonna give you my honest opinion on all that was inside!
1. Casio A168WG-9VT Vintage Watch
When I heard that a Casio watch would be included in this box, I was intrigued to see what kind of watch it would be. Timeless watches are such a perfect accessory and something that any college girl would love. However, I was a bit shocked when I opened the box because it did not look like something a college student would wear. Y’all know that I keep it real, so you already knew that I wouldn’t lie in a review. The quality of the watch is great, but I would have loved to see a more modern piece instead. I think even one of their fitness watches would have been awesome for those looking to prevent the Freshman 15. If ya wanna see what other kinds of watches Casio sells, you can check out their watches here.
2. Sour Punch Share Me!® Mini Bites
I think it’s safe to say that I was ecstatic when I pulled these out of the box. When I lived in the dorms, I always used my leftover weekly dining hall swipes toward candy. They definitely helped me get through some late night studying a time or two!! And these Sour Punch bites are the perfect combo of sour and sweet. You can find more at Sour Punch!
3. Viv & Lou: Throw Blanket
I am such a sucker for blankets. Especially cute ones. So when I saw and felt this adorable and super plush throw blanket I died a little. In my dorm room in college, I think I had about three laying around because I love snuggling up in them! And bright colored ones make dorm life feel so much homier and brighter too! And with monograms being a huge thing in college and sororities, you can also monogram your Viv & Lou blankets too! 🙂 Go now to the Viv & Lou website and use the code “BlissfulGal25” to get 25% off your purchase until September 30, 2017!!
4. BIG AZ® Sandwiches
When you’re in a dorm room, simple food is essential. Big AZ sandwiches are perfect for on-the-go students and are super easy to heat up and eat right before you head off to your class. You can find where to buy these sandwiches here and use this coupon for $1 off!
When you’re in college, the last thing you can afford is a club membership to buy bulk groceries and toiletries. However, EZneeds is changing that because you can easily order what you need online (without a membership) and you’ll get your goods in a day or two. I ordered on a Thursday night around 11 pm and my package cam before noon on Saturday! Also, there’s free 1-3 day shipping on all orders over $50!
6. Luden’s Throat Drop
I think it’s safe to say that I’ve lost my voice a time or two throughout my college life. Between concerts or staying out late at a bar yelling over the loud music, you’re bound to wake up sometimes with a scratchy throat. Or worse…no voice at all! So I was pretty pumped that the Luden’s throat drops were included in this box, because having something to soothe your throat afternoon a long night of screaming in kinda essential. You can score $1 off 2 bags of Luden’s throat drops using this coupon.
7. The princess saves herself in this one & The Posh: Happy Living 2017-2018 Monthly/Weekly Planner
What kind of successful college girl doesn’t have a planner?! I’m old school, so I always kept a paper planner to track due dates and other important events. Not only is this 2017-2018 Planner super cute, but it also has inspirational quotes throughout it to help you rock your week!
And you can never go wrong with an uplifting book to keep you going. The princess saves herself in this one sounds like a pretty sweet book- its a collection of poetry broken up into 4 different parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, and you.
It does feel strange to be to not be going back to school this fall, but I’m so enjoying seeing other people posting and sharing about their experiences! What’s your fave part about going back to school?! OR do you have any awesome memories?!
