So for today’s post, I’m blogging about the stationery that I purchased for school. These were all a steal with the highest priced item at only $6.00. All of these were from Target, TJ Maxx and Marshall’s, so check out their products. Also, The shirt I’m wearing is from Primark and was only 6 pounds.

I’m obsessed with stationery, and I love these Thank You cards. Right now, I’ve been really into metallic prints and these gold polka dotted cards are simple and cute. These were $3.99 from TJ Maxx.

This Target candle was only $3.00, and I really liked the scent. I like more simple scents, but this one is a nice mix of coconut and citrus, and it’s not overpowering either.

These pencils were $1.00 and they have the days of the week printed on them with the pink one simply saying “weekend” on them. I thought there were quirky and cheap. The cosmetic bag can also function as a pencil case and it was only $5.00 by Ashley Mary.

I got this simple notebook from Marshall’s, and it was $3.99. I loved the quote and color, and it’s the perfect size to carry around to jot down notes.FullSizeRender (11)

These were all $1.00 from Target. I like to clip my papers and notes in bunches, so these paper clips were an essential. The pens also had a fun design on them, so I picked those up as well.FullSizeRender (12)

I also use these file folders to organize my class notes and work papers so these were perfect because they came in a set of nine. They were $5.99 at Marshall’s and I loved the short sweet sayings written on them.

This little painted tray was $2.00, and it was super pretty. I thought this was great to throw jewelry on, or to put keys on. FullSizeRender (14)

Decorating My Dorm

So I’m back in college, and decided to share what my dorm looked like. It’s very colorful, and I hope it gives you guys some ideas for decorating your own room.

This is the wall right above my head. It’s one of my favorite parts of my room because of the mix of patterns and textures. First, I loved the long poster of daises placed in a simple vase. It’s vibrant and fun, but still has a minimalist feel overall. Underneath is a collage of a bunch of small little posters and cards. I included some magazine pages from an old Marie Claire issue. I also used some old cards, which is the tulips, the butterfly, and the sun cards hanging up. The cake pop and macaroon posters were from an old calendar. The white frame with gray brushstrokes was an old folder that I cut out and framed, because I liked the pattern.

I also included a teal poster that has various brushstrokes and says imagine, which I got at A.C Moore.

I wanted to have fun with my bed set, so I played with color. The yellow bedspread, and teal sheets are from Target, and I loved the color combination. The pillowcase with gray birds is from another sheet set, and it was from Marshall’s by Cynthia Rowley.

This is my desk area. On the right side, I have a small pink and green box with a mix of cards and envelopes. My desk lamp was only $5.00 from Walmart. Also, I have my notebook, planner, a book that I’m reading, and the newest issue of Vogue piled on the side.

I wanted a little plant for my room, and love this little fern by my TV. It definitely makes a room cozier. I also have a cute little cupcake mug for coffee in the morning.

Finally, this is my closet space. There really isn’t anything special, other than this cute little jewelry idea that I came up with. I used some thumb tacks to hang up my jewelry because I wanted to showcase my statement necklaces, and it’s a lot cheaper than getting a jewelry rack.

And that’s my dorm room. Hope you liked it!

How to Make Your Dorm More Comfy

Here are some small things to add to your dorm to make it a little cozier. They aren’t the obvious things like a rug or throw pillows. I included a lot of decorations and home goods below.

Small Notebooks: I love having a notebook to jot down quick notes, so I really liked both of these notebooks. I usually write down notes for class or blog ideas in these. The blue one was $3.00 at Home Goods, and the other was a gift by Louise Carey.

Bright Picture Frames: I love having pops of color, and I really liked this color combo. A fun frame is perfect to put pictures of your family and friends in.

Printed Pajamas: For the lazy Sundays where you’re in your pajamas all day, I think these shorts and pajama bottom are perfect for college because you can’t even tell it’s sleepwear. The blue crocheted pair were a gift from Target. The dark blue shorts were $9.99 from Burlington, and the Cynthia Rowley bottoms were also $9.99.

Fragrance Sachets: These are great to throw in your drawers of clothes and your closet. These were $2.99 at Burlington and they’re vanilla coconut. They make your clothes smell fresh, and I really like this warm scent.

Fun Folders: Remember that these are the folders that you’re going to be throwing on your desk after class. These were a $1.00 at Target, and it reminds me of shopping for the printed folders when I was in elementary school.

Follow T.J. Maxx on Instagram!

Lately, I’ve been looking at a lot of fashion blogs on Instagram! I think when it comes to fashion and beauty trends, people are looking for more visual ways to find inspiration. Besides blogs, people should also see if their favorite stores have an Instagram account to follow.
