Lizzie Darden’s Summer Faves


There’s nothing more invigorating than prepping for a new school year! I have fond memories of curating the perfect first-day outfit, and of course a backpack full of new supplies. Even now that I’m graduated I get a little giddy when I see Target start to set up their back-to-school section because I just know it’s going to be packed with cuteness. That’s especially true this year because Yoobi debuted their newest, biggest back-to-school collection, and I’m not even exaggerating when I say I’m obsessing over every single part of it! I wish I had an excuse to stuff a backpack full of these goodies, but I’ll just settle on decorating my office desk with them instead. Check out my favorite foodie, sparkly, rainbow picks below!


1. Donut Keychain

Don't you wish you could have donuts with you wherever you go? Me too! I have a MASSIVE keychain collection (I swear my keys must weigh 20 pounds!) and this is my new #1!

2. Ice Cream Pen

Cool off from the summer heat and think sweet, frozen thoughts with this cute pen.

3. Mini Holographic Spiral Notebook

All that glitters is absolutely FABULOUS! I can’t get enough of the entire holographic collection, and this mini notebook is the perfect size for jotting down ideas on the go.

4. Unicorns Forever 3D Erasers

Proof that unicorns are real, or at the very least really cute. The colors in this eraser pack are just too good!

5. Donut Tape Dispenser

The only way this could get any better is if it dispensed actual donuts. It’s tough to find a desk-worthy tape dispenser, but the hunt is finally over thanks to this practical pastry!

6. Rainbow Enamel Pin

I’m all about personalizing with flair, from pins to patches and everything in between, and I can’t wait to stick this cheerful little guy on a tote bag!  

7. Document Organizer - Yoobi Awesome

One thing I loved about the new school year was the chance to start fresh and organized! I like how this has OODLES of pockets so you can really optimize your organization!

8. Holographic Pencils

You can never have too much sparkle! Can you imagine how pretty even the shavings would be from these beauties?!

9. Watermelon Coin Purse

I’m going for the coveted Cutest Fruit Bowl Award with this juicy coin purse!

What do you think of these picks? I think they’d look absolutely adorable on a school desk or an office desk! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a chance to win your own Yoobi goodies, as well as a copy of my brand new book, Punemployed.
