Exciting Announcement: Check Out My Pottery Barn Dorm Catalogue Feature

So, I've been keeping a secret from y'all and now is officially the time to let the cat out of the bag. Blogging has led me to some really amazing opportunities but so far this is the highlight! Back in May I was contacted by a member Pbteen's social media marketing team asking if I was interested in being featured in their dorm catalogue to be released this summer. I distinctly remember that I was in the library studying for my Environmental Science final and it took all I had not too squeal when opening my email during that study break. Thank goodness in the email I was reassured that no this email was not an accident or typo because otherwise I would have sat in utter disbelief. I immediately responded to the email with an absolute YES and hurried outside to call my mom and dad and tell them the exciting news. 

I remember as a child sitting at our kitchen island whenever the newest pottery barn kids (or as I got older, teen) catalogue came in the mail, flagging pages of all the products I would love to redesign my room with. Although it was always imaginative it's probably a good thing my parents never allowed that to happen since once I was finished nearly every page was dog-eared with at least one item circled per page. 


It took all of my willpower to not spill this excitement on social media before it was released although I did hint at it a few times. Well, Sunday I saw the feature in person for the first time! For whatever reason the catalogue never came in the mail to my house so my mom and I ventured to the Pottery Barn store near us and were determined to get our hands on the catalogue for ourselves. The ladies in the store were probably so confused as to why we took about 5 copies a piece. I was super grateful that so many of y'all sent me pictures of the feature but there is just something about having it in person that makes it that much more real. 

They had asked me to put in my "expert advice" in regards to a dorm photo they styled and 3 other bloggers were featured as "experts" in the catalogue as well. The dorm room I focused on was filled to the brim with greek letters, preppy prints, and all things navy. What could be a more perfect design for me? While I don't think y'all want me to quote myself word for word (that would be a bit conceded) from the catalogue if you're interested in my commentary check out page 15 of the newest PB dorm catalogue. 


 Let me know if you've seen it, I would love to hear what you thought! And thanks for sticking around and reading Prep In Your Step. If it weren't for y'alls constant support this opportunity wouldn't have presented itself to me!
