Hello, everyone! Today’s post is something a little different from what I normally do. I just moved into my new apartment, and took the move as an opportunity to redecorate my bedroom. I’m calling this a “mini” bedroom tour because there’s still some things I would like to add to my room, so there isn’t a ton to show. That’s why the photos in this post are mostly focused on one side of my room. The other side that’s not pictured basically just consists of my boring white dresser, the television, and my framed Titanic movie poster (I’m not even a little ashamed). Also, my room doesn’t get a lot of natural sunlight, so bear with me on my photography skills. I’m still trying to figure this camera out (#toomanybuttons).

Another disclaimer: a lot of the items in my room are from Home Goods, aka the Holy Land of home decor, so since Home Goods doesn’t have a shoppable website, there’s a good bit I couldn’t link, and most of the similar items I found were all super expensive. So the items that I did link are items that I purchased from places that actually have websites that you can shop, like Target. I highly advise going to Home Goods if you are looking to decorate any part of your home on a budget. The mirror in my room is amazing and it was only $40! Every similar mirror I found online was about $200! So, I conclude this rambling paragraph with…Home Goods is where it’s at.

My room in my old apartment was basically the exact opposite of my new room. I’m talking bright pink, orange, and green. I had known for about the past year that I was ready to redo my room and make it a little more grown up. Don’t get me wrong, pink is still my favorite color, I just wanted colors that were softer, and a little more peaceful. I also thought that neutral decorations would be great because I can use them for many years and pair them with almost anything. All of the tan and gray decorations in my bedroom now, may make for a great guest bedroom in a house one day.

My favorite parts of my room are definitely the mirror, the lampshade, and the pillows. That mirror and lampshade were awesome Home Goods finds. I mean, how cute is that lampshade?? And the mirror is such high quality for its price. A definite steal!

There are still a few things I would love to add to my room though…

• 1. Home LED Marquee Sign • 2. Basket Weave Accent Pillow in ‘Ivory Dove’ • 3. Bath and Body Works Mod Stripes Candle Sleeve • 4. UGG Shearling Cuff Bootie • 5. UGG Genuine Sheepskin Rug in ‘Natural’ • 6. Plush Throw Blanket in ‘Grey Frost’ •

And that concludes my little room tour! I am so happy with my room. It’s the place I go to binge watch Friends, and where I wake up in the morning with horrendous bed head, and I love it! Let me know what you think of my bedroom in the comments below! Anything you think I should add? Happy Monday, everyone! Have a great week!

April Favorites

April has come and gone, and if I’m being totally honest, I was in summer mode for about 83% of it. But on the bright side, along with April came some new finds and trends that I am enjoying very much, and what better way to get through finals than by writing about things I’m loving, because we all know that final exams will definitely not make this list.


Marc Fisher Shoes

I had been wanting a pair of Marc Fisher wedges for awhile, and a few weeks ago Macy’s was having a huge spring shoe sale, and these two pairs were already on sale, plus had an additional 30% off! When I saw the sale, I lost all will power and snatched them up. I am so so happy that I bought them! They are just great, high quality wedges that I can put with anything, so I can get a ton of use out of them!  They are definitely worth all of the hype they receive, and Marc Fisher is probably my new go-to brand for wedges.

Target’s adorable doormats!

I know, right? This mat is totally, 100%, ridiculously adorable. Target has sooooo many cute doormats out right now, like this pineapple one (perfect for Charleston!), or this tropical one! When my roommate and I saw this cactus mat though, we thought it was just too cute to pass up. I don’t even want to step on it because I don’t want to get it dirty!


CHUCK Baseball Cap by The Nash Collection

For all of you Charleston-lovers out there, I know that you’re digging this Chuck-Town baseball cap. I bought this from Teal Boutique a couple of weeks ago! I was hoping to get it in gray, but they were all sold out, so I settled for the olive, which is still available online (as I’m typing this though, there’s only one left in stock, so if you want it, you better go grab it!)! The Nash Collection also makes hats like this one for other cities as well, so you should definitely check them out. This hat is perfect for when I haven’t washed my hair in three days (which is my hair right now, as I’m typing this) and want to pretend like I actually put in the effort.

Statement Earrings

And finally, I have started to develop a taste for big and vibrant statement earrings. After I bought the earrings for this post, I wanted more, and I’m hoping to grow my collection over the summer! I am drawn to the really chunky, brightly-colored ones, and I think they just pop so nicely with a summer tan. I have my eye on some Lisi Lerch pairs in particular, and Baublebar has some awesome options for statement earrings out right now!

Well, another monthly favorites post down is in the books, and I hope it was just as enjoyable for y’all to read, as it was for me to write (and to buy the stuff for it, let’s be real)! Just a few more days of exams left, and I am finally freeeee!! I am wishing everyone a happy Monday, and check back next week for a new post!
