What's in my School Bag?

Hey guys!
It's been almost 4 weeks since I began school, and 
I am really back into the routine!
It feels like summer never came... I'm so used to school again!
I'm in second year and I'm loving school so far this year; even though the homework and study is a bore, it's fab to see my pals again, now 5 days a week (or more)!

Today I decided to do a What's in my School bag post. I was inspired to do this by some American YouTubers like MakeupbyMandy24 and BeautyBySiena. I don't have that much essentials apart from the obvious stuff like books and stationary, but I hope you enjoy!

So here's my bag from Jansport and on the zip I have a few key rings.

I'm going to start with my least needed things
(a.k.a the most interesting ones)

(Anti-clockwise from Top Left)
Baby Lips in Pink Punch (see my review here!)
Walgreen's Hand Sanitizer
Vaseline in Rosy Lips
EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint

I have three lip products, yes I realize! I like having the variety; EOS is the most moisturizing with no colour, Baby Lips of course has pink tint and I only use it occasionally and the Vaseline is forever the most trusted lip balm so HOW could I go without?
I also have one hand sanitizer from a pharmacy in America. No I didn't get the Bath and Body Works ones; I felt like they were not worth buying when I you could get an equally good enough one at Walgreen's. I hardly use it. I'm not a germ freak at all! I thought it might be handy if colds start to spread since it's almost winter time.

These guys are super handy when you want a fresh mouth after lunch. I don't always pop one into my mouth after lunchtime; I forget, but I should get into the habit. Mints are so nice! Tic-Tacs are also just as good a Silvermints.

A hairbrush.
Shall I explain myself?
Nope, you know the answer...

My locker key.
I don't really keep this in my bag; I keep it on my wrist. But it's something I need every day anway, very essential.

My phone.
We have a strict rule in my school on 'Phones off during class and kept in lockers'. I normally turn mine off and bring it to school in case of emergencies (e.g. if I forgot something; thanks Mum) and sometimes I turn it on but leave it on silent.

My pencil cases and stationary are obviously a must.
I love highlighters for taking notes and colourful pens!

My copies, workbooks and folders and school planner.
Of course I need these for class.
I don't have textbooks because...

I have them on my iPad!
So my iPad is also important, probably the most important.
iOS7 came out recently, and yes, I did update my iPad. It just looks like that because that photo was taken a while back, as it says on the date.

That's it guys!
Hope you liked it!!

Before I go, I shall mention two things:

I got shortlisted for the Best Youth Blog in the Irish Blog Awards!

And last thing...
It is Wake Me Up by Avicii but IN THE IRISH LANGUAGE!
