Hide Them

So… someone gets you something that you don’t necessarily like. At all. But it was so nice of them to get your a gift, right? Right. That’s the point. It’s always nice when someone gives you a gift. It always is the thought that counts, even if the gift isn’t something you would ever pick for yourself. With all of that in mind… How do you utilize the gift in your space? You don’t necessarily want to, but it was a gift and that’s so nice and you can’t just get rid of it. I’ve faced this problem a few times. And, I still have those gifts in my space. I just sort of hide them. And it works! They’re a small pop of color, or a stand for something. If you change the way the item is viewed, it can almost make it look different than it actually is, so it isn’t as bad anymore! You just have to be creative and put thought into it. Try different things to figure out the best...

Should You Hang Pictures of Yourself?

Should you post pictures of yourself around your house? Have you seen some celebrities do it when you watch a reality show (Keeping Up With The Kardashians) or just anything? Well… you should NOT do that. I get it, you want to feel like a celebrity because who wouldn’t? BUT you don’t need to take it that far. Celebrities have tons of photos taken of them because that’s their job. It is more than likely not the job of a college student like you. Therefore, don’t do it. It’s better to put up super cool art, or some pictures that are cool that you took yourself, just not OF yourself. Or pictures of yourself WITH your friends is always cool. But not just of yourself. It’s a new trend, but here’s to it not taking off....

Plan Plan Plan

Plan, Plan, Plan. It helps! Planning really helps a lot to get your thoughts out and straight when it comes to deciding what you want to do with your space. There’s so many different times this applies! The time this helps maybe the most is before going shopping. If you don’t plan what you want and the layout or feel you want for your space before you go purchase things for it, you’ll most likely end up with things you don’t need, or things that don’t totally fit in the space you want it to. So, you’ve then wasted time and energy and money… Yikes. To avoid that mess, just plan! You can even make it fun! Buy some cool stationary and take some time to do it. Get inspired! Play some music, drink some tea and plan! You’ll be so happy that you...

Room Themes

Are you looking for a theme for your room? Are you unsure if that’s “cool”? I think a lot of people struggle with that… so don’t feel too bad. I’ll give you my opinion on it… but I’m not an expert. Everyone has different taste and everyone likes different things. I personally am not into room themes. By room themes, I mean such as a 90’s theme, or a western theme. Of course, it’s great to make sure that things match. But, I don’t think that it’s needed to have a theme overall, but like I said, everyone likes different things! And, if you struggle with trying to find different things to hang on walls or put together, then it is a good alternative to trying to find things that simply look nice together. Happy...

Candles

Scent in general is important to set the mood in your room. I don’t know why, but personally, I work so much better in my room with a candle lit. I have a lot of different candles and I light them at different times, depending on the things that need to get done. It can act as a motivator to get things done in your room, or to stay in your room. That sounds funny, but sometimes you have to get things done and the hardest thing to do is stay in your room, because then you have to get things done and do things you maybe aren’t looking forward to, such as homework or studying. Candles also can provide awesome lighting with the flame! So, go buy yourself a candle! It could be anything! My favorites include… -Soy candles -The 2econd Life by Chesapeake Bay Candles from Target -Bath and Body works candles -Anthropology candles But, you truly can get them from anywhere. My mom’s favorite candle place is Yankee Candle, so clearly you have tons of choices!...

Stockings

Hi blog followers! As Christmas approaches, there are so many fun and cool designs to add to your list! One of the all time classics are stockings! Stockings are festive and a cool way to have a group thing on the walls. I personally prefer classic white and red stockings, but there’s always room for some creativity. You can buy your own or make them, either way they’re a great way to add things to the walls this holiday season. You can also always put things in them, such as Saint Nick gifts to show your appreciation for your roommates and friends this holiday...
