5 Dorm Accessories You Definitely Need

Everyone knows that Target is the place to go when you need to shop. Although most of the time, many of us just go to walk around. You can never leave the store without buying something, even when you tell yourself multiple times not to. On the bright side, you will always find anything that you need there no matter what it is. Shopping for your dorm may be difficult but Target makes it so much easier with everything you need in one place! Here are 5 things that you totally need in your dorm from Target!!

All items will be linked on the bottom!

1. Organizer Task Lamp

We all know that the lighting in the dorms are not the greatest, especially for a desk. That is why a desk lamp is an amazing idea! This lamp not only has a USB port but it also has a plug on the top! You will also not have to waste space with any small drawers or pencil/pen holders because the lamp includes that! For only $15 this lamp will cover everything that you need on your desk!

2. Dinnerware

When you don't feel like spending money on food in the dining hall you can always throw a cup of ramen in the microwave. If you want to be "boujee," you can put it in a $.79 (yes, I said $.79) bowl. Not only do they have cheap bowls, but they also have super cheap plates and cups. With a wide range of colors you can definitely find one that fits in your color scheme!

3. Bedrest

For all the times that you just want to be comfortable and write an essay on your bed, now you can! You will never have to worry about putting your pillows up against the wall and having to fix them every 5 minutes. They have different sizes and obviously many colors, but they also carry them in different fabrics! If you prefer fluffy, they have it, sherpa, they have it, even velvet, they have it!

4. Mini Fridge Caddy

You're obviously going to need a place to store all of those dishes you just bought, so instead of putting them in your closet, get a mini fridge caddy! It's perfect due to the fact that most dorms already come with a mini fridge! It comes with a place to hold plates, silverware, bowls, and cups! With it being flat on the top you do not have to worry about losing that space on top of the fridge either!

5. Hanging Organizer

As everyone knows, your closet in your dorm is not going to fit all of the clothes you have. A good solution is to get a closet organizer! If you are out of room in your drawers or you don't have any place to store your shoes, this can help! All you do is hang it in the closet and voila! You know have extra room to put anything that you need! It doesn't just have to be used for clothes, you can also store extra books or notebooks in it. Any way to free up some space!

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

Millennials can remember a time without online social affirmation, but we may be the last ones.

The Social Dilemma / Netflix

I've been in a media job for the entirety of my professional career. From part-time social media internships to full-time editorial work, I've continued to learn how to tell stories, write catchy headlines, and keep people interested. I believe working in media is a big responsibility, as well as a valuable way to advance our world.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
