I don’t know if you’ve heard…but Juicy Couture tracksuits are back in. Yes, the ones that every celeb from Paris Hilton to Britney Spears once donned to LAX. A rather iconic piece if you ask me. They were also my bread and butter in middle school until one day, I walked past the Juicy flagship store on my way back from school only to find out that it had shut down (I even called Juicy Couture to make sure that this was legit and not a fluke). Fast forward a few years…The LA girl’s staple uniform of the early 2000s has been resurrected. My question is–how does Juicy go from a practically dead brand, picking up dust on the racks of Sears, to collab’ing with the likes of Vetements? Unprecedented, but in a way, exciting that such an classic brand is making waves again in the fashion world. After all, they were the OG athleisure brand. Chalk it up to ingenious marketing. #trackisback
The desk. Oh the desk. You have love-hate relationship with it. On the one hand, you spend so much time organizing/beautifying this space. On the other hand, you sit in front of it for hours (alone most of the time), agonizing over words and numbers. My goal with this post is to give you lots of tips (!) to tip (!!) the balance so that the love component overwhelms the hate part…Never underestimate the power of colors and organization in bringing excitement to your busiest corner in the dorm room.
Side note: If you ever have any questions about desk/school supplies/organization, pls feel free to email me at email@example.com !! I’d be more than happy to be your consultant and offer my 2 cents xx
What is a work space without a comfy chair to support your back for all those hours?? I got mine from Ikea here, and needless to say, it has completely changed the way I study. The desk chair that came with the room was so uncomfortable that I couldn’t sit on it for more than 1/2 hour without my back starting to hurt. It was also this half rocker chair that would make you fall backwards if you weren’t careful enough…This new swivel chair with an adjustable back allows me to lean back without falling and swivel away as needed. I can sit and study on here for hours. And the best part? Easy assembly and dis-assembly 🙂
With school in full swing, I thought I would start a dorm room installation series to give you some fresh new ideas on how to spruce up your small space that is the dorm room. If you are like me, the dorm room decor is an all year round project. I’m constantly looking to tweak things here and there to jazz it up. It’s an endless love affair…;)
Here is a sneak preview of how the series will be organized:
Part 1: The Bed & Accoutrements
Part 2: Desk Organization/School Essentials
Part 3: Walls & Floor
Part 4: Self-care & Healthy Snacks + Misc
I will start the series with the bed & all its essential accoutrements to help you make your sleeping space as good as the one you have at home 🙂 A good night’s sleep is undoubtedly one of the most important things to strive for as a student. There’s nothing better than getting dreamy, restful sleep, especially when under enormous amounts of stress… But let’s be real. A bed is never just a bed. It is a couch, a reading corner, t.v. watching station, and of course, the ultimate reflection/showcase of your personality. Keep reading to see what pillows/duvet/mattress topper I use to get A1 sleep every single night and of course, all my favorite things that go on and below my bed to make it my dreamiest corner.
Restoration Hardware– The Italian framed duvet cover in black is out of stock, but I believe RH still has grey and pink. You can also get it monogrammed which is always an A+ personal touch. While this style in particular reminded me a lot of hotel-style bedding, it was really the crisp, B&W look that caught my eye. This year, I was definitely going more for a minimalist/glossy theme as opposed to last year, which was admittedly all over the place stylistically…
