Tea: Studying in London makes tea an obvious must-have but this former coffee-only-girl is now also a tea lover! My favorite tea all term has been regular black tea with cream and sugar, but I am also partial to a sweet chai or anything with vanilla.
Eye Mask: An eye-mask is a definite must have for me because my roommates and I are hardly ever on the same sleep schedule. Sometimes one of us is up really late doing a paper and one of us is heading to bed early while others are just trying to nap, but whatever the case an eye mask is key so that I can sleep no matter what my roommates are up to…
Hand Sanitizer/Hand Lotion: I keep hand sanitizer with me so that I can just whip some out after riding the tube or the bus to school and during rush hour. I also love having lotion with me during these crisp fall months to keep my hands hydrated (especially when using a lot of hand sanitizers that can dry out my skin). This one is my current favorite- you only need a little bit, plus the rose hip seed oil smells amazing.
Scarves: I used to find scarves a kind of hassle before coming to London because they were always something I ended up having to carry around or stuff into my pursue, but in the UK scarves have been my favorite fall weather item by far. They have been providing just the right amount of warmth on these chilly and rainy days while also bringing a pop of color to my black rain coat. I bought a red tartan wool scarf when I was in Edinburgh last month and now rarely leave my flat without it. Here is a similar style.
Planner: While I have always used a day planner for school, I find my self checking my planner even more than usual this term to keep up with multiple assignments, showings, and of course weekend trips. I use this Lily Pulitzer planner because I love the layout but I also adore this Kate Spade version.
