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,

Current Obsession: Statement Earrings

Hi again! I felt the sudden urge to make a blog post, so here I am to share with you my current obsession. If I’m going to make a blog post, it has to be about how obsessed I am with statement earrings lately. I feel like they are really making a comeback this year and well into next year. I love the look of statement earrings and how they’re simply the icing on the cake to any outfit. My collection of statement earrings is quite small at the moment. I think I have maybe 3 or 4 pairs of statement earrings that I rotate through throughout the week? I definitely want more. Below are photos of earrings I wish I could afford/add to my collection..

(All these photos were taken from Tumblr.)

What do you guys think of statement earrings? Do you think they’re too much? Heavy? – I think they can be heavy and because my head is on the smaller side, I feel that sometimes earrings are too overwhelming next to my face. Statement earrings that are on the simpler side are probably my safest bet.

Anyways, once I have various pairs of earrings in my collection (I’m hoping some vintage and some new), I’ll share them with you! It probably won’t be anytime soon though, Christmas is coming!! (AHHH)

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!

Until next time,

March Favourites 2015

Processed with VSCOcam with p5 preset

I’m trying a different kind of post today. Let me know if you guys like it! I’ve decided to create a monthly post dedicated to everything that I’ve been loving that month. These are the things that I have been loving throughout the month of March! Let’s begin with the gray sleeveless vest/jacket. Not quite a vest, not quite a jacket. It’s bigger than your average vest but unlike your typical jacket, it has no sleeves! I’ve been throwing it on over a number of different outfits this month. It’s really versatile and I highly recommend getting one if it suits your style! My second favourite is Gossip Girl. I’ve owned every season for a while now but I’ve never watched all of them consecutively! This month I took on the challenge. Starting from the beginning, I watched every single episode (I actually just finished the final episode yesterday lol). Seriously, who does not love a little GG? Blair and Chuck? Don’t even get me started! There’s so much to love about the show and if you’ve never watched it before (and I really how you have!!), YOU’RE TOTALLY MISSING OUT. My next favourite is a book I borrowed from my boyfriend’s mom. It was such a good read! I was so addicted that I could not put it down. I just recently recommended it to my sister and she read the first chapter then bought it herself! I can’t really summarize books without getting so excited that I basically ruin it for you. I WILL say that it is a very eye-opening memoir. If you can only read one memoir this year, make it this one! My next favourite is this cute mug from Anthropologie with my initial on it. It’s adorable, what else is there to say? For a while, maybe since the beginning of Fall last year, I’ve been searching for the perfect pair of black ankle boots. Ones that go perfectly with any outfit and can be easily incorporated from season to season. I don’t want to jinx anything, but I think I’ve found the ones. This pair from Boohoo has been on my feet a lot throughout the month of March and I am so happy I purchased them! I can picture wearing them in the summer with denim shorts and a flowy tank ;D They’re perfect! My last two favourites are these bracelets from Aldo and two nail polishes that I have been gravitating the most towards. I began my Aldo bracelet addiction with the purchase/donation I made to support the fight against aids/HIV. They were so colorful that they reminded me of the bracelets I used to stack during the summer.  This made me go back to Aldo and buy more colorful bracelets. I’m not sure if “arm candy” is still a thing, but I enjoy seeing the color on my wrist! I may not go overboard but I will most definitely sport these bracelets more often in the months to come! My final favourites are the two nail polishes that I have been loving for the month of March. I didn’t gravitate towards color, so I apologize for that. Nothing special really happened in the nail department for me. I wore a lot of black and a lot of nude. My favourite black nail polish is Revlon’s “Knock Out”. My favourite nude nail polish is Essie’s “Topless and Barefoot”.

So there you have it! My favourite goodies for the month of March! If you liked this sort of post, let me know so I can start working on my favourites for April! ;D

Until next time!! xx
