She’s no stranger to wearing many hats, but 19-year-old lifestyle vlogger Janina Vela — YouTube sensation, singer-songwriter, all-around creative, not to mention YS fave — is checking off another item on her bucket list: Working with National Book Store and designing her own line of fun and functional day-to-day supplies.
Aimed at students, young professionals and the young at heart, the Janina x NBS collection boasts eye-catching pastel hues and puts together chic leatherette and see-through elements that make the products sturdy and stylish, and completely waterproof. Each piece comes in six dreamy colors (sky blue, mint green, pink, lavender, yellow and white), which makes it easier to mix and match — or bring around an entire rainbow everywhere.
They’re all very clearly a part of her: dedicated to and encouraging confidence and self-expression, calling for creativity and keenness, and appealing to anyone with a penchant for cute things.
The tote bags are roomy and durable, perfect for carrying umbrellas, folders, your current read, and all other essentials. The pen pouches have the cutest shape and can fit everything from your go-to pens for daily note-taking to brush pens and even scissors and glue sticks, because the journaling and collaging bug can hit anywhere. Not to be beaten, the makeup pouches let you stash and show off your trusty beauty must-haves on the go and are Janina’s personal favorite. (Don’t say we told you, but they even have a secret message inside.)
