This Fall, Follow These 5 Steps to Make Your Room The Cozy Cave You Deserve

It's the Fall, y'all. Let these steps guide you down a magical path towards your coziest room ever.

This Fall, Follow These 5 Steps to Make Your Room The Cozy Cave You Deserve
Skyler Waugh

It's finally that time of year again, the time all Pumpkin Spiced Latte drinkers and apple pie lovers rejoice. For me, I make it my mission, the reason for the season if you will, to make my room as cozy as possible, even if it means being overwhelmed by every cinnamon scented candle out there. Here are 5 of the best tips I have to offer.

1. String Lights. 

UO DIY: Decorating with Instax

This is quick (and cheap!) addition instantly adds all the warm and magical feels needed for the Fall. Throw some pictures of your BFF's from the pumpkin patch last weekend and you're good to go.

2. Candles. 


I just want to reiterate how important they are in creating a cozy environment. They add an instant warmth, comfort, and yummy scent in just about any space. Whether you're like me and have several lit at once or just one, you'll notice the difference right away.

3. Chunky knit blankets


I mean come on, look how comfy and cozy it looks. Pair it with some cute throw pillows and a faux fur rug to top it all off. An added bonus, if you're crafty or looking to get into a new hobby, they sell kits on Etsy or Amazon to make your own blanket.

4. Chill music playlists. 


Basically 99% of my playlists are either of my top three artists: Bon Iver, Vance Joy, and Hozier. They're also my go-to's for whenever I'm trying to make my space calm and serene. Turn up the fireplace, grab your honey, and put on some nice Indie music for a cozy night in.

5. Add a Himalayan salt rock lamp.

Not only does this magical little salt rock give a soft glow to your room, it also is supposed to be packed with health benefits like air filtering. Despite if the health claims are true or not, at least it'll be a nice addition either way.

I hope your newly decorated room gives you all the cozy feels this Fall.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
