Hello there, lovelies!
I’ve been incredibly busy because, as you might be able to tell from the title, I recently moved into my dorm room in Normal, Illinois. I’m attending Illinois State University studying Speech Pathology with a minor in Spanish. I’ve attended a couple meetings pertaining to my department and other campus opportunities, and I’ve gotta say, all of my worries and fears have been replaced with complete and utter excitement! I can’t wait to learn all there is to know about Speech Pathology and become everything God intended for me!
I live in a quad in Hewett Hall, a dorm for underclassmen. When I become a junior, I’ll have to move to an apartment, but for now, I’m absolutely loving dorm life! There’s three other people in my room besides me, and they are such sweethearts! Our dorm displays our individual styles, but it still all comes together to bring the cute and homey aspect into it! So, now I’ll show you my side of the room!
A loooooot of this stuff was purchased at Ikea, Target and Bed Bath and Beyond, the candy lands of college stuff! I think it’s super cozy, it reflects my style, and it reminds me a lot of home, even if home is only 45 minutes away. 🙂
I lofted my bed so I could fit my dresser and desk underneath, and believe me, in a room this small, you need all the space can you get! It’s enough room for me to climb up my bed without hitting my head, but it’s still tall enough to fit my desk and dresser underneath.
Here’s a look at my desk set-up! I got these three location canvases at Ikea, and they are the perfect addition to this otherwise lifeless wall!
And obviously, the most important part, the makeup collection! I got these acrylic containers at The Container Store. I got to customize my own little storage unit by buying the separate drawers and stacking them on top of each other.
My pictures are my favorite part about my side of the room. I took advantage of the 50% off photo sale at Walgreen’s and ordered about 150 pictures. Obsessive, you say? Probably. 😉
I stuck them on my wall with picture hanging “putty” that you can get at Target or Michael’s. The package is super cheap, too, and as long you use super small amounts of putty, an entire package will last you these 150 photos!
My view from my window. It’s absolutely GORGEOUS at nighttime.
One of my roommates is super into crafting, so we all took a trip to our local Hobby Lobby and got our initial to hang outside the door of our wardrobes! Obviously, mine consists of music, London, and Disney. 🙂
And, of course, I couldn’t forget to bring my practically perfect parrot-head umbrella for rainy days. 😉
Well, there you go! There’s a little peek at my dorm room! What is/was your favorite part about living in a dorm at your college? Any suggestions to make this room even more lively? Leave me a comment down below!
See you soon!
