Great news, everyone! As of today, I have a new apartment. 

That’s right, I’m not going to be homeless. I know you’re all terribly relieved.

If you think I’m going to go decorating crazy, you are 100% right.

The big things I’m sort of struggling on. Well, that’s not exactly true. I bought a shit ton of furniture already. But as far as rugs and chairs and things go, I’m having quite a bit of trouble. Or maybe it’s just that I have really expensive taste. Either way, it’s a problem.

So for now, I’ll focus on the little things, but fear not! I’ll be writing a follow-up post on some more serious purchases I’m trying to make shortly. It’s past my self-imposed bedtime, OK?!

These two items are both from Anthropologie, or as I like to call it, the store of broken dreams. My broken dreams. They shatter the moment I walk into the store.

The first is a candle. A simple, yet elegant candle. A staple, in my opinion, and an easy way to make it look like you put a lot of effort into your living quarters. While I do love the aesthetic of this candle, I chose it for an entirely different reason. IT SMELLS UNGODLY. In a good way, not like a lingering fart or something of that nature. It’s by far my favorite Anthropologie scent, and that’s saying a lot because that store smells like heaven. It’s Volcano, for those of you who were wondering, and it is absolutely worth checking out, and also worth the $25 price tag. (Side note: you can get this, or any, Anthropologie scent in candles of all shapes, sizes, and prices. I just really happen to like this one.)

Item two is a Horizontal Chemist Vase. I really dig the look of this thingy. It’s unique (well, maybe not in this Pinterest-centric world that we live in, but for non-Pinterest-obsessed parties), and it’s cute, and it’s fun. That’s all I ask for in a good old fashioned thingy. Plus you don’t need to go out and buy a bouquet of flowers once a week to satisfy it. Simply pluck some wild flowers out of the ground, or from the hill bordering the parking lot of your local Trader Joe’s, and you’re golden. I might be a bit hesitant to purchase this item, as it’s $38 and I’m a big believer of shopping around, but it can certainly serve as a source of inspiration.

And with that, I must force myself to go to bed. Good night, and don’t be weirded out when you read this in broad daylight; I merely queued it. Oops, secret’s out!
