Cozy-up your room!

Cold weather keepin' ya inside? Sigh. If the weather outside is frightful, keeping your room cozy is a must. Spruce up your space so it's all warm 'n' toasty before winter sets in.

An adorable fleece blanket is great to snuggle up to in snowy weather. No need to stash it when you're done—just toss it over a chair or fold it at the bottom of your bed to give your room a super comfy feel.

TIP: The warmest colors for rooms are typically reds, oranges, and browns. For a fast fix without painting four walls, throw some colored pillows on your bed for a burst of cozy.

Kick back in bed with some books or homework. This fab bed desk is perf for your laptop or your copy of Jane Eyre. Lounge in your jammies all day but still get your work done.

TIP: While cramming for quizzes and tests in bed is usually a big no-no, studying in bed is OK—as long as you stay focused. Making flashcards and copying some notes are both bed-worthy moves. As a reward relax with a movie under your covers when you're done!

Cozy up a corner or two with some cute candles! Lighting a few around your room adds just the right touch of whimsy and a way-sweet smell. Just remember to blow out the flame when you’re peacin' out of your place! 

TIP: Reed diffusers are a great alternative to candles since they're less messy and you don't have to blow 'em out before you leave.
