Ready, Set, Get Back To School

Yep it is that time of year, we face it every year. Crazy to think I only have this year and next year for going back to school! This is always an exciting time, moving back onto residence, decorating my dorm room, and of course seeing all my friends again!

I take great pride into decorating my dorm room and making sure i have everything I need to get through the year. This year I had lots of memories show up on social media from when I first moved into residence 2 years ago, wow how it feels like that was yesterday. I can remember going shopping for everything with my Mom. How many trips to Canadian tire did we make oh countless! My dad and I moved me back this year and now we are pros, we even brought some of my own furniture and assembled it here at school. It was a great task to check off the list.

I was really excited with Canadian Tire and Sport Check emailed me wanted to help me get ready to go back to school and residence. They also helped me get ready for my new position as a Resident Advisor! I was so excited because it brought me back to buying my Keurig and storage bins from Canadian Tire my first year on residence.

I got some amazing products that I will share more detail about in my dorm room tour post coming soon! But to sum it up I received an awesome 10 piece cooking set, hanging closet organizer (it was actually designed by university students!), Magic Bullet ( I was SO EXCITED about this one), woven storage bins, all from Canadian Tire.

Then to make me even more pumped for school Sport Check hooked me up with new Nike Free runners, Firefly Leggings, Nike Sweater, and Nike running tank- can you tell I am a fan of Nike 😉

I really love having lots of athletic wear, I live in one of the most beautiful places on this earth. There are amazing coastlines, mountains, trails, waterfalls and forests. I wanted to show off just how amazing it is here in a sunrise shoot with my new gear! I mean this spot here is 15 minutes from school! I could spend every morning here!

I seriously could not get ready for school or get my dorm in style without Canadian Tire and Sports Check, they will always be a frequent trip to get supplies for the coming year! 

A huge thanks to Richard Kelly for getting up to do this sunrise shoot! It was so fun to finally shoot together after talking about it for months!
