It's the holiday season, which means the urge to make our rooms as inviting and warm as possible has finally arrived. It's always fueled by lazy-day Pinterest searches and chilly fall mornings. These twelve essentials are key factors to giving your space a comfy, cozy vibe!

1. Candles

There's nothing better than the warm glow of a candle in a dreary room. They even make electronic candles for those who want the ambiance but can't have open-flames in a dorm!

2. Essential Oil Diffuser

These are also a great candle alternative! Diffusers are a natural approach to making your room smell inviting! Scents like geranium, lemon, peppermint, and lotus flower can be added to the water, creating a scented vapor that brews all day!

3. Rugs

Stepping on a cold floor has to be one of the most uncomfortable feelings on a chilly day. Rugs give your toes a break as well as adding style and dimension to your room.

4. Plush Blankets

The #1 key to acquiring the coziest room of all is lots and lots of blankets! Wool blankets, microfiber plush blankets, crochet blankets...I need them all!

5. Wall Tapestry

If your walls feel harsh and bare, add a creative tapestry! They come in loads of size and patterns to fit your specific style.

6. Salt Lamp

Himalayan salt lamps have great health benefits because they purify and neutralize the air on the ionic level. Plus, they look pretty cool as a raw focal point.

7. String Lights

The warmth of these lights gives your room a radiant glow without needing sterile overhead room lighting.

8. Plants

Plants can help purify the air as well as adding greenery to your space. Good houseplants include succulents, cacti, spider plants, and ivy.

9. Pillows

Pillows in the bedroom, throw pillows in the living room, pillows everywhere! Pillows add warmth and comfort to your space. They act as a decor piece, making your room more lively as well.

10. Crystals

Crystals have the power to brighten and soften the energy in your space. Clusters of similar crystals in different parts of your living space can promote feelings like tranquility, positivity, and harmony. The best crystals for making a space cozy include rose quartz, calcite, and selenite.

11. Soft Furnishings

Regardless if it's a woven dreamcatcher or lots pictures and knickknacks on a coffee table, little personal details help to really make the room your own.

12. Slippers

It's almost a requirement to own a good pair of slippers in the winter. Between cold floors, achy feet, and moving around the dorm from friend to friend— it's definitely a necessity.

13. Heating Pad

Sometimes turning up the heat isn't an option. Heating pads are great for watching tv, sitting in bed, or just doing your homework on a blustery day!

14. Warm Beverages

Rev up that Keurig, it's time for coffee! Hot chocolate with marshmallows and whipped cream works too!

10 Ways Retail Workers Can Remain Sane During Black Friday, For The Most Part

"No you can not speak with my manager right now, she's currently crying in the bathroom."

25

November, a time of being thankful for family and friends and also a time of people losing their friggin mind over ~sales~. I remember the days of enjoying this frantic "shopping holiday." I remember eagerly waking up at 3:00 am and digging through mountains of clothes at Forever 21 with my sister and mom. Then I grew up and had to get a job, and now all I know is darkness.

How does one prepare for the iced-coffee-fueled mobs waiting outside the doors of the store you work at? I remember I once made eye contact with one of these dedicated shoppers through the glass door as I clocked in for my shift from hell. It was like looking at a dementor. But now, after working Black Friday for a number of years, I have decided to share some wisdom for any fellow retail workers on how they can maintain their sanity during this trying time.

1. Get a good night's sleep

Giphy

I mean this is kind of an obvious, but I still never get enough sleep. I will forever look dead in the eyes.

2. Wear something comfortable

Giphy

Catch me sporting baked-potatoes slippers on Black Friday.

3. Mentally prepare yourself for disappointment

Giphy

Even though you are probably trying your best, people will get upset with you for reasons you can't control. Don't let it get to you. They're sleep deprived zombies that only want sales. You'll most likely never see them again.

4. Stay positive

Giphy

Yes, a herd of people just trampled over you for a buy one get 2 belts sale. It will be okay. Things should only go up from there.

5. Drink caffeine

Giphy

Unless you don't like drinking caffeine. Then don't. But I would.

6. Don't constantly check the time

Giphy

Clock: 5:00 a.m.

*What feels like an eternity of stress*

Clock: 5:04 a.m.

7. Pack a lunch or make sure your work is providing food

Giphy

8. Hide

Giphy

^ ^ ^ me when I hear a customer complaining.

9. Just keep smiling

Giphy

Remember: you get to go home after this hell ends.

10. Remember that you will eventually be paid

Giphy

Remembering the sheer fact that you will be paid goes a much longer way than you think.
