Either you or someone you know is more than likely going off to college this year. Exciting, yet scary and fun it can be oh so stressful! So we’re giving it a spa makeover! Here’s our spa spin on how to tame those beastly situations into bliss & the goodies to transform your dorm room into a pressure-free paradise where you can escape, daydream and even do a little studying!
Dorm rooms are small & hard.
Remedy: Soften it up with plush picks. Small = cozy! Fragrance can make your room homier too – try vanilla based reed diffusers a feel good scent.
You may have a roommate
Remedy: Put a wall up. Privacy is priceless and sometimes you just need some me o’clock. A screen is the ideal way to block out the noise and retreat – when you’re ready to be a social butterfly again, simply fold it up. I like the four panel bamboo one from Target – 3 panels aren’t as stable & don’t give as much privacy.
Remedy: Craft a rejuvenation station w/soothing gear. There’s not much space in a dorm room for spa stuff – so make what you include count. We suggest a paraffin melter. It’s fun & feels great on feet & hands – especially if you layer on lotion or olive oil before dipping. *Note just don’t let your dorm mates know – everyone will want to come visit and play!
Trying to remember your party, er I mean class, schedule is tough.
Remedy: Remind yourself with an Inspiration Board. Great spot for your calendar & also pictures that represent your dreams and schemes. Love these magnetic ones from Ballard Designs.
