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,

(Faux) Fur Baby

There aren’t even words to describe how excited and happy I was to find this faux fur jacket. I’ve looked and looked for years for a faux fur jacket that was a reasonable price, and up until now I had zero luck. I was Christmas shopping downtown with a friend one day and stopped at Urban Outfitters. Of course, when your goal is shop for presents for OTHER people, you end up finding the perfect things for yourself. This jacket was regularly $200 and was marked down to $69. Sale items were also on sale for 50% off the lowest ticket price, so at this point I’m like freaking out that it’s only $35. I tried it on, fell in love, got to the cash, and by some miracle it came to $25!! Seriously, it was meant to be. I love it, but then again, I say that about a lot of other things in my closet. I REALLY REALLY LOVE IT. Here’s myself wearing my new (faux) fur baby.

Working Girl

I have just recently been hired as a sales advisor at a nearby Topshop. Yesterday was actually my first real shift on the job (which went really well!). One of the other new hires just happens to be a blogger and a fellow student in my program, so naturally we had to take some pictures of each other and create blog posts!! That’s what you’re supposed to do, right? After work, we literally just went outside and snapped a few pictures of our outfits. ‘Our-first-day-working-at-Topshop’ outfits.

For my outfit, I wore black American Eagle “jeggings”, a top from F21, a Brandy Melville necklace, my favorite Zara booties, and my new oversized/i-look-like-a-wannabe-hobo cardigan from Urban Outfitters (I luuuvvv it!).
