Thanks to Kleenex for sponsoring today's post about how to get your dorm feeling like it's really your own personal space.
Going back-to-school is an exciting time and for those of you heading back to college, it can be quite challenging to go from your bedroom at home to a dorm room. I'd like t share a few dorm essentials that I think will make a big difference in making your dorm your own personal space and help you feel at home so you can get on with the business of studying.
Comforter: I spend a good portion of my life laying on top of my bed. It can be reading, doing homework, chatting or just relaxing after a long day of classes and the comforter that I pick for my bed is very important. I switch this out every few months to change things up a bit. Because it is the focal point of my room, I always choose bright colors and patterns that will make this special spot comfy.
Speaker: I love to listen to music when I am doing homework. I have a few headphones but those make my head hurt after a little while so I enjoy listening to my favorite playlist on a speaker.
Kleenex Expression Oval Facial Tissue chevron designs: these very cute oval Kleenex designs will give your room an extra pop of color at a very affordable price. I use Kleenex all day, so why not have such a cute design that looks great in my room too.
Personal touches: I love having personal touches that make me feel like I am at home. These include pictures from home, a few of my favorite books and adorable little knick knacks that don't cost a lot but make me smile.
A cute lamp: I love changing up lamps and will switch those every few months. This is another easy way to change the look of your dorm fast without spending a lot.
Laptop: So important and something every student needs. I am saving for a coral laptop but I would not mind having a pink one too. I just love to incorporate as much color as I can to my life.
Comfy desk chair: When you're going to be sitting at a desk all day, a comfortable chair is very important. If this chair can be a bright color that will give your drabby dorm room more color and life, even better.
A coffee maker: Coffee is life, especially when you are studying non-stop. I love the Keurig because it can make you almost any drink you want and it is very easy and mess free.
