Cleaning before the weather gets warmer is a must. Storing some winter clothes, shoes, and other items, getting rid of furniture we don't need or want, as well as wiping those sky dust particles.

Shedding Winter Weight

I know what you're thinking- why work out? Well, when we have been adding some weight through being less active as well as eating more during winter it can add some pesky pounds. After all, we could even just go for a walk, helping go into that summer body.

Plan Vacations!

Whether we open our wallets and hear crickets or hear that cha-ching, we should plan at least one get away from having to be a busy bee this past few winter months. There are many affordable options for a good vacation. Or even treat yourself in your own home. Regardless, you should relax and don't worry. You deserve it.

Shop for Clothes!

As a "Friends" fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite "Friends" moments. So, here are six places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a "Friends" fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in "Friends" is real and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pulitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in "The One WIth Monica's Thunder," and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

7 Affordable, Easy Ways To Vamp Up Your Dorm/Bedroom

A guide to the best room ever.

I've always been a fan of interior design and room decorating, and I'm constantly looking for new ways to improve my room game, make DIYs for my room, or buy cheap room decor. I've compiled 7 tactics I use in my own room to make it look more aesthetic without spending too much on it.

1. Make a wall photo mural.

This is as simple as printing out a ton of pictures of family, friends, or anything else to your liking, and using wall tape to tape it to your room. Some different ways to position the pictures could be in a heart, spelling out your initials, or simply sticking them in rows and columns. A nice touch would be adding fairy lights to it or using string and clothespins to hang them up.

2. Use tapestry.

Tapestry is about as simple as it gets when it comes to room decor. It's inexpensive and it serves as a great backdrop which can be used for a variety of purposes. I personally recommend ones with darker colors, straying away from the lighter, brighter ones.

3. Add throw pillows to your bed.

Throw pillows can get a bit pricey, so it's important to know where to buy them. I always get mine from Ross, TjMaxx, or places like Walmart/Target. Even a few of these can make your bed look 10x better.

4. Use a statement art piece.

Using one bold piece of art or something that serves as a center or focus for the room can help in decorating and making your room look like you put in more effort than actual. Lately, I've been really interested in the multiple pieces of art, where each one completes the other, and neon signs which can sometimes be customized.

5. Keep a color scheme.

When decorating, it's extremely important to stick to a theme or a color scheme and apply it throughout. Although it may be tempting to buy an item that doesn't match, it is more beneficial to stick to the scheme. I've found it appealing to use 2-3 colors because 1 seems as if there's too much going on, and anything above 3 is basically not a color scheme anymore.

6. Keep designated areas for different tasks.

Don't do your homework on your bed! It's extremely important to have a separate work table that allows you to be more organized and keep your nap life away from your student life. It's extremely easy to keep a work room organized, as long as you have designated locations for everything, and put things back when you're done with them!

7. Invest in a comfortable rug.

Throw rugs can make any boring old wooden or tile floor look much more appealing. I personally have invested in many plush throw rugs over the years and I have never been disappointed. However, I recommend getting gray or colored rugs as I find the white ones get dirty easily.
