the back-to-school season is right around the corner y’all, and honestly for the first time i’m actually ready! (i think that’s what college does to you.)
as far as knowing what to pack for college, i got you covered here
last year i debunked the typical “college packing list” to show you what do NEED and you really don’t.
customizing your dorm, apartment, or room is key
to make it feel like home. i swear making your space all homey and cozy is like the antidote for homesickness. see tours of my freshman
want to know the basics every girl needs in their backpack? i listed the essentials here
but the real question is, where do you get all the stuff you need?
well, you could waste your time going from store to store and spend outrageous amounts of money, orrrr you could just go to bed, bath & beyond
if you’ve ever been to a bed, bath & beyond you know exactly what i’m talking about, and if you haven’t, then let me quickly explain to you.
bed, bath & beyond is the best “one-stop-shop” for any bedding, decor, storage, laundry, bathroom, or organizational things you’d need.
between all the various decor and things i have from my two different rooms, there isn’t too much that i need for my room this year (did i tell y’all i have a house?!). however, i did pick up a couple of things when i dropped in the other day.
1. i’ve seen these fairy lights everywhere recently, so of course i picked some up! i love these because they are lightweight, thin and delicate. i’m planning on draping them over my headboard, but you could easily hang them on the wall with command strips or even sticky tack.
2. i picked up more black velvet hangers because i’m on a mission to replace every plastic one in my closet. my type a / ocd personality needs all my hangers to match. lol
these hangers are honestly my pick because of how thin they are and because they hold any fabric. no more tank tops falling off slippery hangers! YES!
3. i love candles, but unfortunately they’re a huuuggee no no in dorms. these yankee candle fragrance spheres are perfect! even though i can burn candles in my room, flameless options like this are great for when i’m not around but still want my space to smell fab.
pink sands is the scent that i purchased (or should i say repurchased?). it is easily my all time favorite scent from yankee candle.
4. these wall decal calendars were the last items i picked up from the “shop for college” section. these are actually for my younger sister, and i’m so jealous that i won’t have room on my walls to get my own. the pack came with a monthly and weekly calendar, as well as one for notes, and tons of stickers! i swear i’m 20 not 5…
i’ve still got a few other organizational items to pick up, so you can bet i’ll be heading back soon! before i go, i want to give a huge thank you to my girls over at InfluenceHer Collective for setting up this collab with Bed, Bath & Beyond. y’all are amazing!
