Perfect Dorm Style: Clean & Chic Room Decor

As my birthday approaches, I can't help but reminisce college days and how I never really experienced a complete "dorm room" moment.  After entering college, I had my own place but secretly enjoyed the thought of dorm room décor to reflect my personal style.  Adding a little custom flair to any dorm room not only transforms the entire room, but gives it character and a feeling of being at home.  Therefore, I've decided to go back in time (think Back to the Future with Lynsee) and live my college days all over again along with PBDorm to showcase some of my personal dorm room essentials.

Personally, my decor style is chic, clean and fresh.  I like to keep everything fairly neutral and feminine with unique items that have multi-purposes because it limits the amount of space needed while adding a personal touch.

Dorm room organization is the number one priority when decorating such a room, as there is little space to work with.  However, it can be done with the right pieces.  For example, bundling up beauty products along with a wall mirror is a great way to keep everything consolidated in a small area of the room.  Additionally, placing makeup or other products in wall storage containers helps keep everything clean and organized too.

As for a workspace, I think it's pretty essential to have an area where you can do homework or projects because it helps maintain balance between work and a living area.  PBDorm has some space-saving desks that also contain wall storage compartments which is perfect for all work essentials.  I'm also loving these fresh chevron printed desk organizers for pencils, paper clips, folders, notebooks, etc.

The "Freshman 15" does not need to become a fad if you have the proper food storage pieces in the dorm room.  A few of my must-haves in this department include: 1) a miniature fridge (how cute is the pink one?), 2) sealable food containers (portion control), and 3) a healthy snack bar.  I would include little packets of raw nuts, dried cranberries, Quest bars, and popcorn in mine.

Of course, a little wall art is necessary in any dorm room.  I love the photo frame decals for adding photos with friends while the bulletin board is perfect for little reminders to stay on schedule. 

Show your PBDorm Room Style by creating a Pinterest board or photo collage highlighting which items you would use from PBDorm's website and tag me on Instagram at @StyleByLynsee !  I'll be posting mine on my Pinterest page and would love to see your style as well :)

Friday Favorites: Raving Treasures

Happy Friday everyone!  For today's post, I want to showcase some of my favorite treasures of the week.  These are items that I've been using almost every day, or I'm just very pleased with the quality of them.  For example, I use this body wash religiously.  It smells so good and it has a hint of orange zest in it to wake me up each morning.  I've also been looking for a reliable drug store foundation, since I don't like to use my high-end foundations every day.  I decided to try out the Revlon 24-hour ColorStay foundation, which holds pretty well throughout the day.  The only down side is that I have to set it, otherwise it leaves my skin feeling a little oily.

I found these candlestick holders at a Japanese gadget store on Lincoln Road, which I am in love with.  The store is filled with modern items that can't be found in many other places.  I also picked up a cute backpack for my son (I'll show in a later post).  Furthermore, my breakfast typically consists of Quaker Weight Control oatmeal and it is so yummy.  I recommend this brand and flavor to all of you.  As for the candles I've shown below, I grabbed this steal at Pottery Barn.  They were only $3!  What are some of your favorite items?

What's in here:
1) Clean & Clear Pomegranate and Orange Zest body wash
2) Revlon 24-hour ColorStay foundation
3) Candlestick holders from a Japanese store on Lincoln Road
4) Quaker Weight Control oatmeal in Maple & Brown Sugar
5) Pottery Barn candles
