5 DIY Ideas To Recreate For Your Dorm Room

Everyone loves a good DIY, am I right? Yeah, that's right.

And that's why I've selected these five tutorials to share with you. They are all relatively simple and not time-consuming. They are practical and use materials that you can find at Walmart or your local craft store. And of course, they're adorable!

1. This hip eucalyptus wall hanging. 

Wall décor can become a little pricey, so why not try your hand at making some art yourself? This particular DIY is one of my favorites because of its natural color scheme and how it incorporates multiple textures.

2. This colorful addition to any room. 

A garland is the perfect accessory to any room. You can string it with your lights, above your photo wall, or even over your door!

3. These funky geometric coasters. 

I tried out this DIY myself about a year ago, and they turned out so well. All you need is cork board (I bought a five-dollar set at Walmart), paint, and an X-Acto knife! So easy and very functional!

4. Classy planters for that garden you want to grow. 

And the best part is that you can buy whatever pattern of contact paper you want, so they are fully customizable! Also, you're helping the environment by reusing containers!

5. Adorable bookmarks for all those textbooks you’re reading (… or not). 

Simple, practical, and cute? I think yes!

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
