We are featuring the Talia White Comfort Pak.

MacKenzie loves that it has a soft look. 

Everything is coordinated so it comes together with incredible results.

All the bedding items are twin XL sized: the comforter, both sheet sets, the mattress topper, and the quilted mattress pad.

The twin XL bed sheets have deeper 10″ pockets to accommodate mattress pads and toppers.

ocm pink sheets

The set comes with two sets of sheets.

This “Dorm Essential Kit” included white sheets and these soft pastel pink sheets.

These sheets are soft. 

They have even stitching.

We just made the bed right from the packaging, so there are some wrinkles, but after we washed them, they were even softer, and they do not “itch” MacKenzie’s sensitive skin.

MacKenzie loves the Talia White comforter.

This Twin XL comforter set is perfect for creating a glam dorm room.

A pretty diamond pattern combines with kiss-pleats to bring elegance to the everyday.

The Talia White bedding set is soft, textured, and beautiful.

No wonder pleated bedding sets like this are a favorite year after year.

The embroidery gives the front a textured look and a modern feel.

Probably MacKenzie’s favorite is the plush, microfiber blanket.

It is the softest blush color.

It is the perfect addition to the bed. 

Whether she adds it as a layer of covers or snuggles up in it while doing homework, it’s cozy and a great staple.

Available in a range of colors, including grey, ivory, and blush.

Also available in coordinating decorative pillows and blankets.

ocm storage caddy

One of the most clever pieces in this set is the bedside storage caddy.

It hangs between the mattress and the bed frame. 

A large pocket is perfect for a tablet, phone, notebook, other objects.

The smaller pocket on the front is great for highlighters, pens, and smaller items.

This set includes two extra fluffy, machine-washable pillows.

Who doesn’t love new pillows!?

It’s the perfect way to start the year. One for sleeping and a second for studying, hugging, or propping.

Every college student needs comfort and that’s just what the premium hypoallergenic pad does.

It will add support and comfort where you need it the most.  

Cover it and the mattress with the quilted mattress pad for extra comfort and a barrier.

The comfort pak also includes a complete set for the bathroom.

Soft all-cotton bath towels–two.

With two matching cotton hand towels and matching cotton washcloths.

Finally, toss clothes into the laundry bag at the end of the day.

It’s a great way to keep clothes off the floor and ready for laundry day.
