Current Obsession: UO Home

For all of you who didn’t know, I recently moved in with one of my best friends in our very own apartment. Since moving in June, I’ve been so so sooo obsessed with decorating and really making this apartment more like a home. Before this apartment, I was crammed in a house with four other girls/students and it didn’t feel like home at all. I know that I’ll be moving again sometime in the future, but for now, I really want this apartment to look nice and to be a reflection of myself and my roommate. So far, I’m STILL working on my bedroom. It definitely looks more like MY room than it did at the beginning, but there’s still so much more I want to do! This is where my current obsession comes in: Urban Outfitters. The “home/apartment” section on their website is something I find myself browsing almost every single day. I love love love everything on that site. I tweet about it ALL the time. I love the style, I love the home-y vibes. Everything is so cute and so nice – and also sooo pricey. Pillows, rugs, blankets, frames, jewellery holders, lights, and snow globes- they have it all! Heck! I WANT IT ALL. I bit the bullet and ordered an area rug from them about two months ago, and I’m still in love with it. I’m dying for a cute floor pillow to go with it!

I  don’t really know how to describe the vibe I get from Urban Outfitters’ home stuff. A lot may say it’s hipster, but I just think HOME. To better explain the things I like about UO Home, I’ve added a few photos that are “apartment goals” for me.

(Mom, if you’re reading this, can I get plants and pillows for Christmas?)

That’s all for today’s post! Are any of you nuts about home décor? Anybody else obsessed with Urban Outfitters Home? I can’t wait to finish my room, maybe I’ll do a blog post on it once it’s done!! Or a “Room Tour” video!! I’m super excited.

Hope you’re all having a good week so far!

Until next time,

#GirlBoss Material?

What is a #GirlBoss? What does it take to become a #GirlBoss? Just recently I have finished reading Sophia Amouruso’s book “#GirlBoss” (I was up until 3am), and I absolutely loved it. LIKE LOOOVVVVVED IT (no exaggeration). Her writing style and words of wisdom are beyond inspiring, making this book a must-read for all aspiring fashion students/people. Heck! Even if you aren’t crazy about fashion but are interested on how to be successful in the business world, you HAVE to read this book! Sophia’s story behind her amazing success is far from glamorous, and it was definitely far from easy (she was a 17 year-old dumpster eater for Pete’s sake!)! However, after reading, I’ve learned a number of great ways to help me fulfill my dreams. Sophia made it clear to me that hard work and compromise is rewarded. Her story and the things she had to say were so relatable that I feel empowered after reading it. She gives me hope and the motivation to try to “be the best”. I really don’t want to give too much away because I’m really hoping you guys will read this book too. Sophia and other inspirational #Girlbosses (like Leandra Medine from Man Repeller) give advice on a few things like how to manage your money, stay positive, and achieve success. After reading this book all I want to do is work hard and keep busy!

You all have to read it, I highly recommend it 🙂
