Dorm Room Essentials

It's the time of year where everyone is heading back to school.
The majority of school age kids are already attending school, but college begins on Monday, which means it's time to move into your dorms and that's why I'm here to give you a list of your dorm essentials.
As someone who is also returning to college next week, I've been excited to create this list! Now, I'm not going to be moving into a dorm because I'm married and share a house with my husband, but I am looking for anything that can make my college life easier, and that's where this comes in!
It's almost fall, which means it's about the time of year where I get sick and who can afford to miss class?
I try so hard to keep up with my vitamins and vitamin C to combat that, but if you do get sick you should get the Kleenex Expressions Oval Facial Tissues*! Not only are they so cute and can add a nice look to any room, but they're super convenient and affordable. 
They can be found here and purchased at Wal Mart in the Back to School section! Also, these are LIMITED EDITION and will only be available for a short time!

How cute is that print?!

Let me add that you can use your Kleenex Expressions Oval Facial Tissues for things other than a runny nose. I love to use them to blot my face after applying foundation to remove any excess oil as well as placing one of my lips after applying lipstick to blot face powder over it to mattify and extend the wear of my lipstick.
The chevron design of the Kleenex Expressions Oval Facial Tissues as well as the shape are very complimentary to many different interior designs. 
In addition to the Kleenex Expressions Oval Facial Tissues, I recommend keeping paper plates at all times, because who has time for dishes everyday?
Also, as I mentioned above, the Vitamin C Lozenges are an essential as a college student.
Another tip I have for you, if you're really busy, is to meal prep! So, Tupperware is an essential.
Making a bunch of meals and storing them in your fridge is so convenient and much quicker than you think!
I also highly recommend a laundry hamper. I recently purchased a navy chevron print hamper earlier this month. This will make laundry day much simpler.
A shower caddy is also a must have! No more juggling your shower products!
A nice throw blanket is a necessity.
I also recommend a small vacuum. No one has room for a large one in a dorm.
Labels! You need labels, especially if you're sharing a dorm with someone else, and you typically will be.
Headphones. You know, to block out your room mates.
The last thing I'm going to recommend is candles; if you're allowed to have them.
In my opinion, there's nothing more relaxing than a nice candle.
So, that's it for my essentials!
I tried to leave out the obvious things.
Thanks so much for reading!

Spooky Eyes Contact Lenses

Spooky Eyes sent me a pair of contacts for review* last week, so I wanted to show some pictures and give some information on them.

The contact lenses I received are from the DreamEyes line at I chose green because I already have green eyes but I wanted to enhance them.
The green contacts I got were the Spiral Green lenses.

Here's a before picture:

And here are some after pictures wearing the contacts from Spooky Eyes.

You can purchase these contact lenses for $27.95 for one pair at
These are NOT prescription lenses! If you don't have 20/20 vision, you will need to wear glasses with these lenses. 

These are large, and they make your eyes look huge and amazing. Despite being larger, they are still easy to put in. It may take a few minutes for your eyes to adjust, but after a few minutes you won't feel them anymore. 

These will last up to 4 years sealed, after opened they last for 1 year with proper care.

I totally recommend giving these a shot if you like changing up your eye color or enhancing your natural color. More contact lens reviews coming up next week!

Thanks for reading!

*The lenses mentioned in this post were sent to me, free of charge from Spooky Eyes. I am not being compensated for this review, and I am 100% honest!*
