Back to School Guide!



There’s been some unseasonably cooler weather where I live lately, temps have been in the low to mid 70s, and it got me thinking about fall and you know what fall means? Back to School!  Long since gone are the days that I was in school, but I still remember the excitement, from kindergarten through college, of the first day of school…even for those 4 or 5 years that I hated school.  School meant: an end to the late summer doldrums; new clothes and school supplies; reunions with friends; making new friends; art, theater & music classes; and later school was something to rebel against.

Anyway, before I go any further down memory lane, I’ve put together a fun ‘Back to School Guide’. It’s filled with all sorts of back to school goodies, mostly for teens and adults, but there will be some younger kids’ stuff as well.  Each day this week, I will share a couple of categories from the Guide with you. Categories include: Dorm Life, Apples!, Supplies, Accessorize, What to Wear, For Guys, Lunchtime and Little Kiddos.


Plus, win a Back to School Prize Pack from Shana Logic consisting of: Miss Piggy Cameo Necklace, Glitterlicious Heart Necklace, Happy Raincloud Belt, Little Ladybug Earrings.

To enter, leave a comment on this post with your favorite item(s) from the Indie Fixx Back to School Guide. Since I will be revealing the Back to School Guide all week long, you can enter all week long! That means, you can enter multiple times to increase your chances. That also means you must come back and visit all week long. I will choose one random commenter to win the prize at the conclusion of the contest. The contest ends on Friday, August 15th at 11:59 pm EST.
