Posted by Katie Orphey on

Labor Day has come and gone, which means no more wearing white (yeah right!), but more importantly, finally getting into your back-to-school/post-summer routine. As we say goodbye to our care-free summer rituals, it’s time to get down to business with the essentials. Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up our favorite stuff to make your transition a little easier, and make your back-to-school season that much more perfect. Check out what why we’re toting these goodies around all season long and make sure to enter for a chance to win the ultimate giveaway prize, so you can too, during 9/12 – 9/16 over on our Instagram:

Planet Box


The founders over at Planet Box, craved something to help them pack lunches more efficiently; something that was all in one, but had separate compartments to keep foods neat and fresh (sign us up!). It needed to be easy to open and close — especially for little fingers, durable enough to last for years of wear and tear, yet flexible enough to stay fresh and current. And, last but not least, it had to be easy to clean and dishwasher safe.

Meet PlanetBox – where packing lunch doesn’t need to be rocket science! Each Planet Box is made from non-toxic materials, because it’s a safe choice for their family and yours. Not to mention, using a reusable lunchbox means creating a lot less trash (like paper bags, ziplocs and plastic containers – which lets us sleep easier knowing we are doing our part to help the planet for future generations. Get your hands on your own Planet Box by entering our Instagram giveaway between 9/12-9/16.


Nomva is what happens when you take tasty combinations of whole, organic fruits and vegetables and toss them in a blender with a scoop of immune-supporting, dairy-free probiotics (billions of ’em!). These on-the-go snack packs are created with high-pressure processing (HPP) technology—not pasteurization—to preserve every Nomva pack without compromising the natural nutrients and taste on the inside. Like other fresh foods (cough cough, yours truly), Nomva should be kept refrigerated.

Which are we squeezin’ up, you ask? Well, honestly, they’re all equally as tasty as the next! With flavors like Kale, Apple, Blueberry, Carrot and Strawberry (and freshly bursting flavors within each of them), there really is no picking favorites. You can find both of us chillin’ in your local Whole Foods fridge, or head on over to our Instagram and enter to win some Nomva of your own.



We all remember the days of shopping with Mom for new school supplies and being über selective to pick those which matched your style (almost as important as your first-day attire). Well, today’s students (and, who are we kidding — even adults) are in for a sweeter treat, when it comes to school supply selection with this month’s SWL pick.

Yoobi, pronounced “you-be,” means “one for you, one for me. It was born out of the idea to make colorful, vibrant tools that spark learning and creativity. Not only did the Yoobi team want to perk up the school supplies aisle, they wanted to help solve a very big problem: Many kids in the U.S. don’t have access to basic school supplies, unless teachers pay for them out of their own pocket. Yoobi wanted to help. So, for every Yoobi item you purchase, an item will be donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S. Pretty awesome, right? Get all of your back-to-school needs, while paying it forward, with Yoobi by entering our Stuff We Love giveaway on Instagram.


Now, let’s get back in the groove, in style. Come on, ya’ll! 🙂
