My name is Rose Velazquez, and I’m a junior at Louisiana State University studying English and mass communication with concentrations in creative writing and journalism. At the start of the fall semester, I moved into my first on-campus apartment. Though it’s not much, it’s certainly a step up from the dorm rooms I’m used to. Since moving in, I have been looking for cute and affordable ways to decorate my new room. You can follow along with me on my blog as I journey through the world of thrift shopping and DIY projects in search of outfits, furniture and decor for a college budget.
