A Cozy Space to Call Your Own

I am going to keep todays post short and sweet! But a quick first week of school update… so far so good! Awesome courses, great instructors, and it is so awesome to see many of my friends again! I’ll fill you more with school later but onto making a cozy space for yourself! 


Today you are going to get a sneak peak at my dorm room, it is 98% finished I just need to get more canvas prints done for my gallery wall but that will be over time. I will do a full tour of my room later this week on snap chat ( follow me at sydney.power ) and a blog post/ video will happen once I get classes under control!


I think having a cozy space to call your own is really important to keep a healthy mind and environment. That could be a sitting room, maybe even a chair or space in your office. For me it is my bed in my dorm room. After long days and a lot of team based classes this semester, I need some time to unwind and relax. Now my relaxing normally will include editing photos or working on the blog as there are not enough hours in the day to do it all! I also love to read and watch some netflix. 


To make my space cozy I immediately go to pillows and lots of them! Laying back into a mountain of pillow is very soothing trust me! Another great thing to have is some soft blankets to snuggle up in and some soft lights to calm down. 


Keeping my lovely diffuser on my side table is great  so I can have a peaceful scent going before I go to sleep. To make my cozy space complete is photos! I love photos they are the best memories for me. I am focused on creating a gallery wall this year. I love my canvas prints and I have some more ready to order to add on the wall!


Let me know where your cozy space is! I can’t wait to hear. Thank you all for reading and have a lovely day! 

love, S

    What a chic dorm room! In college, I never really decorated my apartments. But finally a few years post-grad, I’m starting to decorate, haha! It helps that I’ve recently moved into a brand new apartment — there’s just something about decorating a crusty old apartment that was never appealing to me, haha!
