All About Bedding!

 Tuesday, August 7, 2012

The Winner of the Country Club Prep Giveaway was
Entry #136......
Sarah W.!!!

In just three short weeks I will be going back to the South to begin my Sophomore year in college. This last week has been a little crazy for me. Since I am a true bargain shopper, when I found this Anthropologie quilt in a super sale last December I had to pick it up. I knew I would use it for this year because Anthropologie quilts are usually so expensive and they are really soft.

 I think I was in love with the good deal and not so much the bedding because when I took it out last week I felt disappointed with the drab colors. With only three weeks to pack and get into school I thought I could at least cross bedding off the to do list. Unfortunately I couldn't because I knew that the bedding I had was not for me.

I used this beautiful Amy Butler "Dream Daisy" set last year!

Whats a girl to do when bedding falls through so late in the game? All the good deals are gone and the selection is slim pickings. So I called my future roommate (R.) who is smart, calm, and considerate and we have a lot in common- I can't wait to room with her! She already bought her bedding so I asked her to let me know which one she bought.

Add good taste to R.'s list of amazing roommate qualities! When I saw she bought this Echo Calypso bedding I went right away to Bed Bath and Beyond to buy the same one. Not only is it cute but it will be perfect when the two of us (bunk bed style) have the same bedding. 

I ended up just buying the duvet and one sham. I'm thinking about doing an orange sheet and maybe even getting one thats monogrammed! Now all we need is a matching rug.....

I wanted to share some of my search for the perfect bedding. I find it hard to find well made comforters in a Twin or TwinXL. For some reason companies assume college students are broke-I wonder where they get that idea ;).



  Want a plain bedding? Theres a groupon today for a $80 set on sale for $30!
 What bedding do you use?

You're new bedding is so cute! I'm about to start my senior year and surprisingly I'm still using my bedding from freshman year from PBTeen. It's super bright and fun and it still looks great! I guess sometimes when you pay a lot, it's actually worth it! :)

Bedding is definitely an essential part of a bedroom! All of these are so cute! I love your new bedding!

I always love new bedding. Love this post!

In order to appease my ever changing taste but stay within my college budget, I would always purchase simple and inexpensive comforters from stores like Target and DIY cool pillors and accents throughout hte rest of the room!

Picking out bedding has always been so difficult for me because I literally want everything lol. In college I ended up changing mine every year. xo

So love the Vera Bradley Va Voom bedding, but I'd probably stay in budget for the under $50. range.

Making a dorm room seem cozy and matching is so helpful in making it seem like "home" for the year. I'm glad you found something you both like!

Niki August 7, 2012 at 2:53 PM

There are many different websites that offer kayaks for sale, and these kayaks come in a
wide range of sizes, from five feet to twelve feet, and
are built of materials according to their usage.
You will also have to decide whether you want a tandem kayak or single kayak.

One thing that you should practice, and the only
time that I believe you will dump your kayak will be when exiting and re-entering the
boat. Some fishermen just take a rod and a few lures along
and others like to bring lots of gear along. So, make sure you stay hydrated, so that you do not tip off in
fatigue while reaching the dock.
