8 Things You'll Wish You Bought BEFORE You Moved Into Your Dorm!

It's that time of the summer. When everyone gets their housing assignments and all of the stores are out of over the door storage and husband pillows. A few days ago, the ever-famous Bed, Bath&Beyond Dorm Essentials catalogue landed in my mail. I looked at it, thinking about all of the things that I wish I had bought before I had moved in. Yeah, it would have been nice if I had picked up a speaker ottoman, but it would have been nicer if I had picked up these 8 things before I had moved in!

Favorite Board Of The Week!

I'm not sure if I've already told you guys, but in August I'm moving into a townhouse! I am so excited. I'll be sharing the house with 3 other friends, and unlike a dorm room, I have a LOT of freedom to do what I want. With my parents selling the house to downsize, with me being gone and all, this truly translates in MY OWN SPACE.

The Best Fruit And Veggie Wash Already In Your Pantry!

When I was about 12 or so, while in the grocery store with my mom, I came across a bottle of what I thought had to be absolute magic. It was a "pesticide remover"! It came in a spray bottle that was strategically placed between the cucumbers and the apples. 

I remember truing to sneak it into the cart and I remember my mother reaching through to it's hiding place and setting it back. She said to me, "Anything that is sold to take off chemicals, is probably also a chemical." I thought to myself, "No, that won't happen! That isn't fair!" but lo and behold, I never saw that product again. 

Was she right? I'm not positive, but I do know, it got me thinking. "What else can do the job?" After doing a bit of research, I found this amazing and simple recipe for a fruit and vegetable wash/soak!

What Clothes You REALLY Need To Pack For College: A Guide

A picture I took during a much need wardrobe edit! 

There are a lot of misconceptions about dorm closets. I have never, in all my days, seen a walk in closet in a dorm room. Do not expect a large space for your clothes.

To Thrift or Not To Thrift: Blankets and Throws

In August, I'm moving in with a few friends in a house outside of our campus and I realize that there are a lot of things I want but a lot of things I do not have. These things are in my family's home, but I can't take what they're using!
