One of my favorite parts of the college preparation process was definitely deciding on my decorations and theme for my dorm room. I had so much fun searching around my town for picture frames, school supplies, and, my personal favorite, throw pillows! I went back and forth for quite a while on what I wanted my theme to be for my dorm; I wanted something happy and bright, yet also simple. After arguably too much contemplation, I chose to go for a “bohemian chic” vibe. I am absolutely LOVING IT!! My central theme was pineapples, so I naturally purchased what seemed like 50 different pineapple decorations, only to realize that my dorm room would not have enough space for all of them. I brought all of the decorations that would fit into our car and headed down to Lexington, VA to make my visions a reality. Here are some shots of the finished product and my favorite aspects of my room:

From paintings, to tapestries, to pineapple shaped purse holders, you can’t go wrong with cute wall decor! It gives your room its own personality!
I love my calendar; it helps me so much to have it right in front of me when I am doing work so that I don’t forget to attend a meeting or practice!

First of all, I think my cactus and orchid are ADORABLE. Also, it is rewarding to have the responsibility to care for another living thing. Cacti are especially easy to care for!
