Embrace the Summer Feeling.

So this weekend launched the home improvement project marathon and thankfully my entire family was on board. Since it was such a beautiful day, my mom, sister, and me made a trip to Home Depot and then a quick visit to Pier One for some essentials and inspiration. Along with purchasing home accents and furnishings, I picked up a few items for myself. I wanted to embrace the warm weather and bright colors with these "must-haves."
Double-walled drink cups with plastic straw.
I own the first one!
3 Medium-Size Paper Lanterns for my Apartment Next Semester
Round Bright Red Pillow Ball
The pillow is the exact red color of a lamp I already own, so its a great accent for my future bedroom. And since I am a sucker for the whole paper-lantern look, there was no way I was walking out of the store without a few of them. Plus, it will be nice to have some soft lights hanging in the corner of the room next semester.
I know the box marked "Going back to college" currently living in the corner of my room is going to be full of new items to make my new home feel "just like home" over the summer months.
