Before going back home they asked these artisans to make 400 bracelets to take back home, they put a few of these bracelets in some bowls in boutiques. They instantly ran out of bracelets and were asked for more, that is when these two graduates realized that these bracelets could be a lot more. They ended up partnering with the two artisans in Costa Rica and much more around the world to make these bracelets. Originally these bracelets symbolized living in the now rather than the later because Pura Vida means Pure Life in Spanish.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning. You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret. So here are 20 tattoos where you can't go wrong. Here are 20 small tattoos with big meanings. (But don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!).

A Look Inside My Overpriced Dorm Room

The cutest 200 square feet.

505
views

For most, the thought of leaving home and living in a space the size of their parent's master bathroom is terrifying; however, once you have lived at a camp for half the summer, you are oddly blown away with the space of an entire desk, futon, fridge, and closet to yourself.

A summer of hot hikes and bunk bed living prepared me more for a 200 square foot room at a 37,000 student population school than I ever could've thought to be thankful for. After a very sweaty 7 am Sunday check-in, a wholesome chipotle family gathering, and one last goodbye, I was officially a college student living almost on my own.

Dorm Sweet Dorm!

An over-the-door mirror was a must and apparently so was the "ring for champagne" wall decor that is only hanging up for the sole purpose of aesthetics and color scheme despite having no actual function. On our letter board, I had to throw in my favorite summer camp saying "Cho Boi" which is part of an African chant used to welcome warriors back to the safety and support of their villages and means "welcome home". We also keep our glorious shower caddies by the door on top of the dorm-hall-supplied "pedestal" which has quickly become our snack cabinet. We also have taken "adulting" all types of serious by buying pink and grey bins for real cleaning supplies and even a shower curtain to give the appearance of clean closets.

THE Futon

Here's to the people who sell color scheme matching futons on facebook for $15. Since our futon is on the smaller end and was built to be resting low to the ground, my super dad played Bob the Builder at 7 am and put together all the pieces of the futon frame we designed. When it comes to 200 square feet, storage space is the greatest gift, and we are blessed with a full drawer under the futon and two ottomans to contain an Amber Scholl sized shoe collection. We also can't forget about the Yeti-skin looking faux fur through that feels like a polar bear hug.

The Desk/Makeup Table/Step-Stool

For Senior Night, my mom took out the glass from an old picture frame and replaced it with chicken wire, and with some glittered clothespins and a paint pen banner, the cutest DIY picture display was made. I keep my hair products and tools on my shelf alongside all my "desk pens" (I keep them separate from back pens so I have them no matter where I am). I attached my extension cord with command strips to be out of the way and reach up to my lofted bed and down to the desk easily. I have gold accents for all my organizers and even a matching laptop case.

I have a slanted mirror from IKEA for makeup. I keep a three drawer cart for makeup where I use spray painted file organizers for pallet storage, have bins in each drawer to organize my products, and have grey buckets for eyeshadow and face brushes.



My Sacred Space

Hi, my name is Ansley Cartwright, and I have an unhealthy love for coffee.

We returned our bulky K-cup organizer, and instead, used a decorative bin for all my latte needs. We have a white basket for dry snacks and a Scentsy for our candle-free dorm. We also are in the process of setting up a Wii and TV for game nights, Bachelorette showings, and Netflix addictions.

Throwin' it out!

A cute wooden sign to remind me of home, and all the throw pillows you could ever need. The ruffle bedding is also a 10/10 because you don't have to iron what is supposed to look wrinkly!

Though dorm life is a challenge, I have absolutely loved our first few days in our tiny home!!

Please enjoy pictures of a CLEAN dorm, because it won't last long !!
