Peek Inside My Dorm!

21 comments


I'm a little slow getting around to it, but here's a peek into my dorm room! I've made it literally my dream space to live in that I couldn't ask for anything else. Feminine, organized, romantic, and well....dreamy! I have the top bunk and I have Christmas lights strung around the bed post so I can write in my journal at night while Audrey looks down from above. On the other wall by my bed I have my motto for the year 'dream' in word cut outs with stick on clouds and glow in the dark stars going up to the ceiling. I love to look at them when I pray at night. My bed is super comfy- more so than the one I have at home!

I have all of my dresses and such hung up in my closet with my heels displayed down below. In drawers I have my pants/skirts and in the drawer below that I keep all of my flats. My desk area is the perfect place for inspiration yet getting work done and I love having a bulletin board above to pin my favorite magazine clippings and words that I keep close to my heart. 

I keep all my jewelry on a cute tree sitting atop my dresser and have all of my perfumes, trinkets, and sentimental items sitting there, too. My makeup is organized in the drawers of the storage unit; all by type of product (lipsticks forever being my favorite drawer). The first week of school I bought a movie posters of The Notebook and the famous World War II kiss to adorn my walls. 

My hamper looks like a washer which is pretty much the most adorable thing ever, and I keep all of my food (aka junk food) atop a shelving cubical which organizes my towels and such. I had to be weird and color coordinate them all!

To be honest I don't miss my home. I miss the people at home (my family and kitty cat), but not the actual place. It brings me too much sadness and I end up crying too much when I go home. Memories haunt the place and unexpected momentous that I haven't gotten rid of are always popping up all over the place. I wish I had a metal detector to collect them all at once so I never have to have the pain brought up. But then again, it's not just items that remind me; it's everything. And you certainty can't get rid of everything.

With much love, Lauren.

Darling and whimsical Lauren...just like you :) Actually, the way you've decorated your dorm reminds me so much of how I did mine...down to the clouds & same Audrey Hepburn poster. I wish I had a photo to show you because it's uncanny! xo Marisa

I love this - so colorful! so you! You save napkins too I see :) Love that laundry bag !

shay said...

Wow I love your dorm! its so colorful:) i'm a total creep in that I always want to see everyone's dorms, but to me its fascinating- each room starts the same,yet evolves into something that's such a statement of the individual living there.

I understand what you say about going home-I'm a freshman too, and its sad to go back and see my family and all the memories. It will get better though, not as painful and more nostalgic :)

I love following your college experience! its great to read fellow bloggers in the same boat xx
