Friday Faves- Week 1

Here are my top 5 finds from around the Internet this week!

1. DIY Storage Jars: I’ve been loving chalkboard labels for a while now, it’s so handy that Martha Stewart has some pre made ones! I have a few jars laying arond, I’ll definitely be making these.

2. Summer Outfit: I love how easygoing this outfit is. I can easily see the top transitioning into fall too! I’ve been dying to get a bubble necklace so I think this is the perfect chance to get one, although I don’t want to pay the J.Crew price. I read on another blog that they can be purchased on Amazon here.

Healthy Dorm Snack Ideas – No Fridge Required

You know,

I really don’t know how I’m going to survive in my dorm without a toaster.

Can’t toast bagels in the microwave you know. I mean, I’m sure the cafeteria has bagels and a toaster but still.

Not the same.

 

While I was mourning the sad reality of my toaster-less cubicle of a dorm in the fall, I decided to put my mind towards something more important.

Like snacks. Healthy snacks! Well mostly healthy. You’ll notice that I didn’t include things like bananas, apples, oranges, and etc. in the list (aka the healthiest options) and that is because I figure those are already pretty obvious snack choices. The goal here is to give you a few ideas to spice up your snackin’ life. And while they may not be as healthy as a piece of fruit, I did make a point to choose the healthiest prepackaged snacks I could find because they’re convenient and don’t take up any of that precious mini fridge. When choosing a prepackaged snack, make sure to pay attention to the ingredients list, sugar content, and additives.

DIY Bobby Pin Holder

I have a little story for you today.

A few months ago, I made enchiladas.

Somehow, my mexican food cravings netted me a schmancy new bobby pin holder.

Neat, huh?

The best part is, I want you to be able to make a neat bobby pin holder without actually having to make enchiladas so I made a handy tutorial with only four easy steps! But you could, you know…make some anyway? Go to a restaurant and order one? If there is one thing I know besides how to make a holder for my beloved bobby pins, its that enchiladas are tasty. At least eat some guacamole or something. Then go make this!

You know, I find it sort of funny that I started a blog about saving money as a college student when

technicallllllly,

I’m not in college yet.

But I will be in the fall! That counts right? Okay good.

Anyways, on to my post. Who loves Ikea?!

Ikea is a great source for finding budget friendly furniture and home products that are surprisingly tasteful and well made. I combed through their products to find my top ten picks for living in a dorm room that will definitely be making my shopping list. I mean, tv stand for only $20?!
