Back to School: Dorm Life

With dorm living and the first day of school around the corner (or maybe already here for some of you), it's time to get your space in order. You guys know I absolutely love interior design and decorating which is why I am loving a new site I found, Dormify! Although I am out of my dorm living days, Dormify is all about making your small spaces whether it be a dorm, apartment or condo trendy and fashionable. Above I have rounded up some of my top essentials for a dorm/apartment.

1. Storage is obviously essential when it comes to small spaces. Dormify has some amazing storage boxes and they come in some really fun and trendy colors and prints.
2. A good side table is essential and I love the glass top of this one plus it tucks perfectly under a couch.
3. Reminders from home whether it be friends, family or pets are so important. I love having cute ways to display photographs and the one above is perfect.
4. One of the biggest essentials in my home is lots of greenery. I love adding lots of plants to my home. I feel like it brings a little of the outside in and opens up the space.
5. If you guys are like me, I always (and still to this day) like to work in bed or on my couch and having a good lap desk is essential. I love the print of this Jonathan Adler desk and know it's perfect for my home.

Make sure to check out Dormify's consultation quiz where you can get personalized design recommendations from their experts!

Two Minute Hairstyles

It's no secret I like to take care of my hair and need easy simple hairstyles. I have round up some of my favorite two minute styles above. I have been using the Head & Shoulders Fresh Scent Technology collection which I love, and have been using it to get the above styles. It fights off my dandruff & makes me feel clean and fresh. Plus, it smells amazing.

The Texturized (and Voluminous) Ponytail

You will need:
Garnier Fructis Texture Tease
Elastic Hair Tie

Step 1:

Separate one section of hair and spray with Garnier Texture Tease

Step 2:
Scrunch hair that has been sprayed to create more volume.
Repeat on the other side.

Step 3:
Loosely gather hair into a ponytail
Tug upwards at the hair right above base of the ponytail to create more volume.

Step 4:
Spray ponytail with Garnier Texture Tease for added volume and texture.
Scrunch for desired look.

Sometimes there's nothing better than a big voluminous ponytail. I'm a very simple gal and I like my hairstyles to be very easy which is why I absolutely love this look & seriously ADORE this Garnier Texture Tease! I am not really one to use a comb to tease since I'm always afraid of damaging it so this product is my savior! It's basically a backcomb in a bottle. All you have to do is spray it and scrunch up the hair a bit and voila, instant volume! Above is my easy way to get that big textured ponytail we all die to have!

Jacket: ASOS // Pants: Target // Shoes: Chinese Laundry // Bag: ASOS // Rings: Gorjana (Here & Here) // Sunglasses: Ray Ban

Who doesn't love a good pair jeans or leggings especially when they are a total steal?! I am obsessed with this pair from Target! I'm a huge fan of denim leggings (jeggings) and am always adding to my collection. I like how they are form fitting yet allow you to movie and not be uncomfortable. With Fall right around the corner I'm getting geared up and adding to my denim collection!
