Hard to believe, we're talking back to school already. Our Lauren Berman spoke to a lifestyle expert to help get your kids ready.

Amy, I can't believe it`s almost back to school season already. What do you have for us?

"We are going to start with a dorm room. Putting your personal stamp on your dorm room begins with the bed so we have the Anthology Happy Indigo Comforter Set and don`t forget about additional seating when friends pop into your dorm space. You need something flexible. So, we have the faux fur butterfly chair, which opens up when you need and also folds away when you need to put it away.

Don`t forget about additional storage space, which is so tight in the dorm room so we have this great storage cart with lots of additional drawers, but it also doubles as a nightstand table.

Don`t forget about decorative elements like a decorative tapestry, which you can splash across the wall. You can put it into the window and also throw it across the bed on those colder winter months. So you can snuggle up to that! All of these ideas, which are great for a Boho-chic look, are from Bed Bath and Beyond. It's a great one stop for all of your dorm room needs.

Now speaking of fashion, H&M is gearing up for Fall with some great back to school styles which starts at $4.99, if you can believe that. From top trends to transitional styles, they have great denim washes that are a great fit for all. These start from only $9.99.

Let`s delve into great fashion for kids, but don`t forget the H&M Conscious Collection, which is 100 percent organic cotton and also features some great basic styles. For girls, we are featuring suede jackets and bomber jackets for this season, graphic T-shirts, and beautiful printed skirts. Don`t forget about accessories like fringed purses, backpacks, and motto booties, those are $29.99.

For boys, feature on the comfort level, everything from joggers to hoodies and graphic T-shirts and the high top sneakers that will definitely be a home run. When you go to H&M and you spend 60 dollars you can save 20 percent off. Also take your old and unwanted clothing to H&M stores and you can save 15 percent off your entire purchase, such great savings.

Now when it comes to going back to school, you also don`t want to stress out because that causes break outs. So, our next product is absolutely essential! This is the Seventh Heavens Tea Tree Peel-Off Mask, and it is the newest, all-natural high performance facial treatment for clear, cleaner, and calm skin. It is absolutely amazing. You put it on for 20 to 25 minutes all over your face then you do a relaxing activity. You peel it off and all of the impurities come off right with it. You can find this product at K-Mart and some other great retailers and it has the stamp from Leaping Bunny and PETA, which means it's cruelty free. So definitely check it out!"

Amy, I cannot believe the deals at H&M they will definitely be good for those college students. Thanks so much for joining us this morning.

"Thank you."
