5 Words to Know

It's really embarassing to be talking to someone and only catch 50% of what they're saying because you have 0 clue what the words they're using mean! I've encountered this more times than I'd like to admit! I've picked a few words that could come up in conversation or would be pretty impressive to use in conversation. 

  1. Inculcate - instill (an attitude, idea, or habit) by persistent instruction
  2. Usurp - take (a position of power or importance) illegally or by force.
  3. Gauche - lacking ease or grace; unsophisticated and socially awkward
  4. Diffident - modest or shy because of a lack of self-confidence
  5. Sanquine optimistic or positive, esp. in an apparently bad or difficult situation.

If you knew these words I am very impressed! Hopefully you find a way to use them in conversation and impress your professor or a even better, a cute english major!

Summer Must Have Saturday

Jack Rogers
The Perfect Summer Sandal

You've probably seen them before (they're a pretty sample) but if you dont have some, GET THEM! They're a little pricey  but totally worth it! They are really great quality and will hold up for years. A must have for summer because they can dress up or down. They look great with maxi and sun dresses (even wedding dresses) or shorts and tank top. Also they come in any color you can think of so theres sure to be a perfect pair for you!
The Navajo Sandal $110 on Jack Rogers
Sometimes you can find them for cheaper on Zappos, Amazon, Etc.

Stock-Up On.....

There are hundreds of dorm room checklists out there (personal fave) but they can leave out some things that your going to want to stock up on. Things you don't even think about because your mom probably buys it or you may just think it appears out of the blue!

1. Underwear and Socks
This may seem a bit odd but think about for a second. Our mom probably does laundry once a week, in college when your doing your laundry (or waiting to bring it home so your mom can) it probably isn't getting done once a week. While you can get away with wearing your jeans a couple times before washing them I really hope you dont do that with underwear and socks.  Stock-up on them now before your doing that midnight load of laundry cause you've run out!

2. Extra Contacts & Solution
I'm really bad at this. My mom still orders my contacts. But before you leave for college make sure you've brought as many boxes of your contacts as you can! Its really easy to forget about these cause you don't change them every day! Also bring extra solution so you dont have to buy more in 2 weeks!

3. Medicine/First Aid Kit
You don't have to turn your room into the Red Cross but you'll be thankful you have some Advil when you get a head ache or have a bandaid for that paper cut! Also buy the store brand medicine its cheaper and is the exact same!

4. Phone Chargers
Buy an extra just in case! They fray and get lost easily.

5. Pens & Pencils
College is still school! It's better to buy a pack in the beginning of the year then replace them if you ru out!

Closet Organization

There are products that I have loved having in my closet and they maximize storage space! One is a sandal holder. They aren't expensive to buy and are perfect for dorms. Add it to your list like now cause it is so worth it!

The Sandal Rack I have is pictured below, it's $9.99 at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Heres the link! I love it because it is really thin and fits in my closet nice without being tacky like other shoe holders. It hangs on a normal rack like regualr hanger. The clips have fit almost all of my sandals not just flip flops like in the picture.

DIY Key Holder

I've recently been doing DIY projects for my dorm room and I came across some Key Holder DIYs. I think thay are so cute and simple! I'm not going to include directions to these just cause they're pretty simple and if you need them all you have to do is google it. There materials can be bought at any craft store or Walmart. To save money you can get a frame from a thrift store and paint it! Here are some ideas that I liked for you to go off of if you like the idea as much as I do. I like different things about different designs and will probably incoorpate different aspects of a few of them!

I love the Chevron and the pin at the top for notes!

I'm in love with the mason jar! I love the shabby Chic styling of it too.  It'd be easy to get artifical flowers to match your room colors and they'd last all year.

I love this idea bacuse it's a really cute way of incoorpoating roommates and making the room look cohesive. 

I love the idea of having the keys within the frame! I think it might be difficult to find a frame deep enough though!

Simple Spring

Lululemon Obsessed

Lululemon is a workout clothing brand specializing in yoga clothing, but these are the cutest workout clothes ever. I couldnt be more obsessed. They're cute without trying to hard and they are actually supportive and are high quality. They really think about what girls and women want to wear and how the clothes will work/fit. The price is the only problem! They are on the expensive side. BUT they have outlets in some areas. It is safe to say I have Lululemon Lust.
This is the cutest sports bra in the history of sports bras. 
I am in love with the stripes!
