Let’s face it, the dorm room life is a squished life. I was reminded of the fact as I dropped my younger sister off at BYU to start her sophomore year. We arrived at her apartment, took a look at the worn-out cabinets and shelves, entered the bathroom to see that the toilet didn’t flush, and there was mold growing in the corners of the shower. Typical college apartment, right? It doesn’t have to be! With the discovery of some mahogany stain under the kitchen sink, we spruced up damaged areas of the wood, bought some bleach and cotton balls to soak the moldy areas and quickly notified maintenance about the toilet (S.O.S.!) Thanks for the help, mom! With these projects underway, we went to decorating the (under furnished) apartment. Here are a few tips that guided us to making her dorm-like apartment her home for the next few months. We hope you can use and share these tips too!

I’m back from the Big Apple and I’m pretty sure it was just all a dream. Did I really stand on the rooftop of The Met and watch the sun set? (Yes!) Was I at the Yankees game when A-Rod got his 3000th hit? (almost!) Did I see a dead guy on the subway? (that’s true too) New York City seems to offer it all, and I want to share with you some tips that made my trip extra magical.

A few weeks ago I interviewed style and fashion blogger Stevie Henderson for the first installment of Confident. Fearless. Inspired. (If you missed it or need a refresher, here you go!) Since then I’ve thought about the style tips she gave us and the décor she said she’d love to have in her home. With Stevie’s suggestions in mind (black, white, simple, minimal patterns and color) I browsed a few of my fave online décor shops and threw together a few things I thought she may like. Here you go Stevie, a little design love All Por Ju! Hope you enjoy!
