DIY Dorm Decorations

Moving away from home to live in an exciting new place is not all it’s cracked up to be especially when home is roughly 3,000 miles away. To make the culture shock of living in a dorm room with 3 other girls more bearable, I decided to spruce up my living space a bit with


I love getting to meet new people and I enjoy discovering new blogs written by interesting individuals.
