College (and other new beginnings) check-list

Heading off on your own brings along a whole range of emotions no matter the destination. Whether your adventure involves moving out with friends, traveling to Europe, or going to college, new beginnings often cause stress and anxiety along with excitement. The Linea Intima team is made up of women ranging from young adult to grandmother, and we’ve “been there, done that”. We want to make your new experiences easier and more enjoyable, knowing that it’s the little things that create an easier day-to-day. Here is our post high-school survival guide.

Sleep Masks

A sleep mask can bring comforting luxury weather you’re spending the night in a dorm room with a roommate who’s cramming for tomorrows economics exam, or in a hostel catching up on sleep after last night’s pub crawl.

Wash Bags

We’ve all had experience’s where an aim-to-please boyfriend or roommate tries to right wrongs and do our laundry for us. We come home pleasantly surprised before WW3 breaks out over some shrunken tops and ripped bras. By throwing your delicates in a wash bag, it will ensure that everybody (including yourself) remembers to hang those items instead of putting them in the dryer.

Double Sided Tape

Consider this your “mom away from home” or your “cheap seamstress”. Double sided tape is the perfect quick-fix for that skirt that’s a little too long or a hem that’s come undone. It can also be used to keep plunging necklines in place and to prevent gaps between buttons. The tape leaves no residue on fabrics and is a much better idea than putting safety pins in your clothes!

Wicking Fabrics

Sharing a room gets difficult if both people have different room temperature preferences. Choosing to wear a fabric that keeps you cool will allow your roommate to sleep in the sweltering temperatures that she prefers, and will earn you brownie points (and maybe even real brownies) to put towards future favors. Some great lines to check out are Softies and Knock Out!

Bra Bags

We know that when you begin packing up your wardrobe it will be nearly impossible to keep the “no man left behind” promise solemnly made to your closet. Ensure that you have your entire bra wardrobe with you by picking up some Bra Bags. They can be stored above the closet, under the bed, or next to the desk discretely, great for when you are in mixed company.
