{sponsored} dorm room decor

{this post brought to you by Residence Hall Linens. all opinions are 100% mine.}

with j being in the military my college situation has been anything but easy.
i’m currently attending my third college in four years.
i started out living in the dorms at depaul university in the fall of 2010. i remember how excited i was about dorm life and packing to move in like it was yesterday. the thought of living on my own (kind of) was totally sweet. buying my own set of dishes, towels, laundry detergent, silverware…it’s almost like registering for a wedding but you don’t have to wait for your items, you get them right away!
for your viewing pleasure, here’s a super awkaward picture of me in my dorm room:
my roomie had decorated my side of the room in honor of my one year dating anniversary with j. he was in the middle of a desert at the time so we weren’t able to talk. (ps- don’t hate. i warned you it was awkward!)

packing for the big move in can be pretty stressful.
dear reader, don’t stress!
there are tons of sources that yours truly will help you take full advantage of!
first off, take a look here. that link will bring you to an awesome checklist of all the thing that you need/might want to bring with you to your new living space!
after you take a look at that list and are ready to start buying, check out Residence Hall Linens.
they have tons of bedding/towels/so much more!
here are a few of my favorite items from the site:
-once upon a time i was a french major so i simply adore this “Paris” reversible comforter!
-dorm mattresses can be pretty uncomfortable so an Egg Crate Pad is a must.
-unfortunately, i’m quite the klutz so it’s critical that i have a First Aid Kit near by!
-having some art on the walls can make your blank four walls feel much more home-y. i’m loving this Umbrella Kiss piece.

Residence Hall Linens is a great site to get started on making your dorm room feel like a home. the prices are awesome and the designs are pretty sweet too.
best of luck with your shopping!

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
