Jacarandas are starting to bloom in sunny Brisbane, and high school and university students across the country are filled with dread. Yes, we’re approaching exam block! Here at Showroom we want to help you (or your stressed out loved ones) get through this as smoothly as possible, so without further ado here are our top picks for an exam block survival kit!
If you haven’t upgraded from the humble biro, you don’t know what you’re missing out on. A well-designed pen that glides across the page while you’re taking notes not only feels better, but it will help you keep clearer notes, write faster and delay those inevitable hand cramps. This timeless beauty from Japanese stationers Delfonics will get you through your exam, and still look and work perfectly when you rock up to the first day of your dream job post-graduation! If you’re a serial pen-loser (no judgment here) then a Rollbahn Pen Case is a worthwhile investment. For the perfectionists out there, a Rollbahn notebook completes the ensemble and helps you keep your study notes all in one place.
But what about once you’ve finished your cram and you need a solid night’s sleep before you start it all over again? That’s when you need to up your relaxation game. Run a hot bath and tip in some of Soak Society’s original wellness soak, light a candle (we like the Patchouli candle from Salus as it helps to rejuvenate tired spirits, plus it makes your bathroom smell like a very expensive day spa), and pour a big mug of West End Tea Co’s Peppermint Tisane. Not only is it relaxing, but it also aids concentration and helps with stomach upsets, so it’s great right before an exam to help with those butterflies!
