The weather in Alabama doesn’t play around y’all! One minute it’s freezing and windy and the next it’s sunny and warm. Word on the street is that we are going to be getting snow on Wednesday and if that is the case you better believe I’ll be out there playing in the snow taking pictures! Class has already been delayed tomorrow until 11am so who knows whats going to come for Wednesday…but I will be bundled up in this pink coat!
Stay warm out there friends!

I’m not going to lie…trying to figure out how to dress for cold weather is not my expertise. I’m still trying to get the hang of it…I mean I grew up in Florida…growing up when it would get cold we flocked to uggs, jeans and a long sleeve shirt. Cold weather up in Alabama is a whole different story…No joke. I just got back from class (it’s 16 degrees here) and I had on 5 layers plus a scarf, and a headband. I looked like a total goon!

 [show_shopthepost_widget id=”405284″]

My boyfriend and I picked out some of our favorite things that we own as college kids! My top 3 favorites for her gifts would be Pure Barre, a Barbour jacket and a Clarisonic. Why? I’m crazy for Pure Barre I try to go 4 times a week in Tuscaloosa however we don’t have one at home and it makes me so sad! A Barbour jacket because it keeps you warm and stylish! A Clarisonic because it keeps your skin feeling good and without it I’d be lost. My boyfriends top 3 favorites for him are a Barbour jacket, cowboy boots, and a Yeti Cooler. Why? Because without a Barbour jacket he’d be cold and he can stay on trend even though he doesn’t even know it, plus sometimes we match and it’s really cute but don’t tell him I said that!!! Cowboy boots because every man should own a pair! A Yeti Cooler because what else are you suppose to keep your drinks in when you’re at a tailgate, on the boat, or at a date party!

Hope y’all enjoy

The Dorm Essentials Checklist With Pottery Barn

 Crazy to think that I lived in a dorm 3 years ago and now I’m starting my senior career, boy has the time flown by. There are plenty of things I wish I could have changed when I lived in the dorm and I know one of them was wishing I didn’t bring as much stuff with me! I am currently in college at the University of Alabama and I  lived in Julia Tutwiler Hall when I was a freshman which was an all girls dorm right next to Sorority Row. I happened to luck out and get a “pie shaped room”. Literally, in the shape of a slice of pie… the smallest room you could possibly have in the dorm.

dorm essentials

| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 |
leave it to me to decorate a dorm the same color scheme as my blog…
Here’s why you are going to want all these items:
1. A carpet because trust me…you are going to be tracking dirt in and out of your room. You’ll want to sit on the floor but it will either be too cold or dirty. Plus, the tile is just disgusting. Especially if it’s an old dorm…you don’t know what’s been on that tile. I suggest a rather large rug that will stretch to you and your roommates beds. But remeber to vacuum it weekly!
 2. A monogram pillow because adding personalization is key..especially when you’re home sick. You want to make yourself feel like you’re at home..and that way people will know which side of the room yours is!
3. A shower tote especially if you have community bathrooms…and don’t forget your shower flip flops!
4. A towel wrap…because you never know who is going to be running in and out of your room and if your roommate is there and you’re trying to get ready putting on a towel wrap is the best way to go. You also won’t dirty more clothes that way  (getting to the laundry part)
5. A jewelry holder or a shoe rack, I  turned mine into a spot to hold all of my hair products, lotions, cotton balls, and etc. Trust me…you will thank me later. It will leave more space on your desk
6. Yes…you’re going to want a laundry bag for the gruesome hauls to the laundry mat..and please don’t wait around like me and do you laundry until it is literally overflowing and you have no clothes left to wear.
7. A wooden monogram to add some more personalization to your room…go ahead and get your roommate one also so y’all can hang them above your beds 🙂
8. A bulletin board to hang up pictures of your family, old friends and the new friends that you meet!
9. Don’t try getting a make up organizer because when you’re in a rush to get to class  in the morning putting everything away in the same spot won’t happen…it will be the least of your worries. You’re roommate will use your make up (you think she won’t but she will)..so it’s not like she will put it back in the correct spot either. If you really don’t wanting her using your make up you can put it in a cosmetic bag and lock it away (coming next). Also, a makeup organizer will take up more space on your desk.
10. Yes, a trunk…or a least a lock for you closet. I can’t even begin to explain the amount of things that went missing because of my roommate and people just walking into my room and helping themselves if i want to be kind. I wish I would have had a giant chest like this to keep my most valuable things in so that wouldn’t have gotten stolen. Also, I highly suggest that if you have nice clothes, shoes, purses and etc..get a chain and lock for your closet door. I’m not trying to freak y’all out…but trust me. Things go missing…and people lie. Better safe than sorry.
And if you get the chance…Go Greek! It’s the best decision I ever made
I’m trying to be realistic here..there are a lot of things I wish I could have put in this post that I adore from Pottery Barn…but trust me I know what I’m doing! I’ve experienced it all. This is a college dorm room, not your bedroom at home. Imagine sharing your bedroom with another person…yeah it’s real.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask!
