Be Most ***Flawless on Campus With Beyoncé School Supplies
Queen [Teacher] Bey has spoken: it’s officially back to school season and we’re gearing up for it with Beyoncé’s latest release — school supplies. Whether you’re a student in high school, college, grad school or simply want to take your cubicle or home office desk to Sasha Fierce levels of greatness, there’s something for you in her, ahem, #flawless collection.
The Back to School Bundle ($75) is available on Beyoncé’s website and comes complete with a Beyoncé t-shirt, #wokeuplikedis locker (or dorm room/cubicle) poster featuring Bey in a basic white tee, two tote bags, a pencil pouch, composition book and plenty of pencils. If you’re not a student, you can easily use the “Flawless” pencil pouch as a kit for your makeup essentials to throw in your purse. And the two tote bags, one labeled “Mine” and the other “Beyoncé,” can be carry-alls for textbooks, magazines, DIY supplies or groceries. As for the “Mine” composition book, we’re planning on jotting down plenty of to-do lists, crafting ideas, recipes and grocery lists. And songs, of course.
Just in case you wanted a closer look at these Yoncé’fied pencils, there’s one for every song off the latest album. We will personally be using SUPERPOWER to cross things off of our to-do lists while we #runtheworld and jam out to all of our Beyoncé playlists, natch.
Obviously to officially “school life,” you need to stash all those goodies in something equally stylish. Luckily for you, the Limited Edition BeyGOOD X STATE Union backpack ($125) is here featuring a 15-inch padded laptop sleeve + tons of organizers and pockets fit for a #grownwoman. And don’t forget that embroidered #BeyGOOD patch.
Besides looking good, the BeyGOOD team is doing good, by teaming up with State for the #BeyGOOD x STATE GIVEBACKPACK Program. On August 18th, they will be giving out backpacks and supplies to students in Charlotte, Baltimore, Washington D.C, Philadelphia, Newark, and NYC. And we hope if any lucky school gets a Bey-sighting, it will all go down similar to the video above.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
