Christmas Decorations


I decorated my dorm prior to Thanksgiving so we would be able to have the decorations up for quite a while before going home.  My classes ended the first week in December, so there wouldn't have been a point to decorating after!  After coming home for Christmas break I simply decorated my room at home with the decorations I had at school, so I thought it would be fun to show you both!

Dorm
This is where all of the main decorations in the room were.  We already had the lights up so we simply hung icicles and a bow from them.  We placed clings on the window the said "Let it Snow."  On the windowsill we sat my fiberoptic tree in the middle, and then added little knick knacks all around, which you can't see well because of the weird lighting... I swear I didn't take this in a dark room, but the combination of backlighting from outside, the string lights, and the tree, it all just messed with my camera.

Here closer up picture of the tree and the things around it.  I have had all of these things for so long there is no way I could tell you where it all came from... The pinecones are from Michael's though!

This is my bed, which isn't too terribly different than when you last saw it.  I flipped the comforter so it would be solid grey and then added a cute little snowman, but that's it!  But since I took this picture things have changed a lot... I added another picture line in the corner, added groupings of pictures all over the wall, and my best friend's mom made me a couple of new pillows for my bed!  I'll post an updated picture after break.

This cute little snowman is pretty much the only other decoration in our room!  Aside from a bell wreath I hung on our door which isn't pictured.

Bedroom
This is the main area of decorations in my bedroom at home.  Like I said, I brought all of my dorm decor back home, so there will be a lot of repeats!  I put my tree in front of the window on my little side table, put winter-y stuffed animals in my chair, hung snowflake window clings, tied the bow to my lamp, and decorated my bookcase!  

This is the main cute area on my bookcase!  The little wooden box in from Target's dollar section and says "North Pole Express." In the box I put my little snowman (which is a Webkinz back from when those were cool) , snowflake beads, and some Christmas books.

Here is my tree again, still surrounded by cute little knick knacks.

And then there is this little arrangement that I love!  The tray and tree are from Target's dollar section as well, the plate is from Walmart, and the bottle is from Dollar General.  If you look closely at the ornament in the lower left corner you can see mine and my boyfriend's names!  He bought it for my this year and I think it is super cute.
Other than what is shown here there are just more small items sitting around, and a lot of stuffed animals!  Of course the rest of my house is decorated more elaborately, so I might as well give you a small peek at that!  

This is out tree with all of our homemade ornaments or the ones that don't match the main tree.  If you look closely you can see a little village underneath!

This is our tree in the breakfast nook which is decorated with cookie cutter and cinnamon sticks and things like that.  You can also see my beautiful decorated table in front!

Another table I decorated that I am quite proud of.  Yes, I am basically a 40 year old woman even though I am 20...

And then our main tree in the living room with presents wrapped and ready underneath!

During this stressful holiday season I pray that each of your coming days will be filled with love for those around you, joy in the festivities, and knowledge of the true meaning of this wonderful day.  Thank you for visiting, and I hope you all have a blessed and wonderful Christmas!

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
