What's in my bag? - 1st week of exams


Revision guides - for some last minute revising

Water - not sure if I'm allowed this in the exam, but I can't think straight without being hydrated

Pencil case - As you may have seen from my post Case Closed, I consider this aspect of the exam very important. I may have panic-packed pens... I have at least 10, just in case.

Lucky charms - My silver 'A' necklace and magnetic bear. As far as fate's concerned, I'm not taking any chances!

Calculator - Maths isn't for a few weeks, but I'm so hopeless that I know if I don't pack it now I'll forget it on the day.

Watch - A lovely, functional, clear watch. What's that you say? Isn't it a little plain? Of course not my friends! I love the very slight texture on the simple black strap, the silver around the face and the fact that i can totally envisage it on the wrist of a chic Parisian lady eating her morning croissant.

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath - If you also have exams around now, I would recommend reading as a good way to calm down, plus you can get some ideas for descriptive writing. Other ways to calm down include going for a brisk walk and my secret ingredient...

Emergency white chocolate mice - any chocolate will do, in fact, dark is probably best. Did you know, when you eat chocolate, it can cause emotions of happiness because it contains phenylephylamine - the same hormone the brain triggers when you fall in love.


Good Luck if you are also taking exams this summer! You'll do fine.

You look prepared. The Bell Jar might not be the best thing to read during exams though... plath is pretty bleak hahaha
