Mini Target Haul (Including Oh Joy! for Target)!

Happy 4th of July weekend, everyone! I’m trying my best to keep up with this blog. But the stress & details of planning a wedding are really taking its toll on me. All I can say is for those brides out there wedding planning, I feel your pain!

Now, on to my Target haul! I’ve previously posted on the amazing home décor line that Target has with Joy Cho known as Oh Joy! for Target. She makes the prettiest items that are full of color & life! I have to have colorful things in my home to keep me sane. It just makes me happy to see bright, cheerful items in my home.

Her newest additions to her line are definitely geared towards home items rather than her previous baby décor collection (though I did buy some of those items, no shame. Also, a lot of those items are in clearance, so look out for them. The heart ottoman was on sale for a steal!).

The only item I bought that wasn’t a part of her line is the light up “<3 Tacos” sign. I just thought that was adorable since my fiancé & I enjoy tacos all the time.

Comment below with your favorite Oh Joy! for Target items! 🙂

Apartment Tour: Living Room & Kitchen!

As promised, here are some pictures of my apartment! This is the living room & kitchen. I love how it looks, & I think for the small space it has well used furniture & décor items. I get most of my décor items from Ross, Target, Marshalls, Home Goods, & TJ MAXX. While I believe that less is more, I also love having pieces that make me happy. Overall, I think my kitchen & living room is inviting and girly, obviously. Let me know what you think in the comments below! 🙂

Christmas Time & Where I’ve Been!

Christmas is just around the corner, & I couldn’t be more excited! We’ve been enjoying decorating our apartment. That’s right, I said “our” apartment! After a year of applying for jobs, getting no response or a straight out “no” for jobs, my boyfriend got a job! It’s what he really wanted, & even though it took a while, I’m glad he waited for the job he wanted. Our long distance relationship is finally over, & he moved over this past weekend. Crazy! 🙂 It took us a while to unpack everything, not to mention we are still straightening everything up. So my apartment tour is on the back burner until we get everything together.

We also went engagement ring shopping! Talk about diamond overload. I just didn’t realize there were so many rings with so many different designs. I thought I wanted a princess cut solitaire ring, with diamonds on the band. But after trying on that look I thought it just wasn’t sparkly enough. The fashionista in me loves sparkles! I’ve found one ring that I really love. We are going to one more jewelry store to be sure it’s what I want. I’m so excited that we are taking these steps in starting our lives! I’ve been with this man for over seven years. I love him so much, & I’m glad he loves me the same. ❤

Now, about decorating our tree. It was a trip! We got this one tree that looked nice & full on the box. Don’t be fooled by the cover! This tree was so pitiful looking! The lights in the middle didn’t even work! I called it a Charlie Brown tree.

We ended up returning the tree and buying one that was only $10 more. I think the end result was so much better!

Sneak Peek At My New Apartment!

I recently moved into my new apartment, & I am in love! It is beyond beautiful, and I love putting my touches into every part of it. I’m still in the process of unpacking. I just never realized how much stuff I have. I thought I’d post a few pictures to give you an idea of my style & decorating aesthetic. I try to go for the eclectic style, similar to Monica’s apartment on FRIENDS.

A Glamorous Weekend!

A Glamorous Weekend! by lovely2298 on Polyvore featuring Olivia von Halle, UGG Australia, Kobelli, Oliver Goldsmith, Christian Dior and Kate Spade:

The weekend is finally here, & I couldn’t be happier! Over the past week I have been slowly moving into my apartment. Let me tell you, I do not plan on moving again anytime soon. That’s how fun it was packing and unpacking. lol. But I couldn’t be happier with my beautiful place, & I will have some pictures & styling tips coming in the near future. Until then, I am without internet or television. I thought I could live without that for a little bit, but it’s getting tiresome. Especially with college work being due each week. This weekend I’m going to remedy that problem, & I’ll be back to blogging in no time!

Now, when the weekend comes around, I love relaxing & enjoying girlie things! This could include anything from candles, to a favorite movie, to staying in my pajamas the whole time. I recommend anything that makes you feel glamorous & fabulous!

Comment below with what your glam plans are for the weekend! ❤

Sofa Hunting & OOTD!

Shirt: Target. Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters. Jacket: Loft. Shoes: Ross.

Happy Monday, everyone!

So I had my first experience buying a couch. Let me just say, there is so much that I didn’t realize went into making this decision! Color, firmness, style, stain resistance. Picking a couch that would last me a while was a bigger struggle than I thought it would be (yes, first world problems). I finally decided on this teal colored couch by Ashley Furniture. My grandma was nice enough to buy my couch for me. Thank you, Maw Maw!!!! 🙂

Afterwards, we made a quick stop at Target. I had to try on this cute burgundy hat, such a great addition for your fall wardrobe. Sadly, I just can’t seem to pull off the hat look. But if you can pull off hats, be sure to check out Target. They have a lot of great floppy, fall hats!

The outfit above was what I wore on Saturday. I think it’s really cute! Kinda throw-backish, which is exactly what my boyfriend said when I showed him. Who knew he was so fashionable?? 😛

Weekend Furniture Hunting!

Happy Monday, everyone!

This weekend was really busy for me. Saturday included getting up early in the morning to go to yard sales. I didn’t get anything major, but afterwards we had delicious breakfast at a little restaurant called Zee Best Café. I got French toast with sausage links. It was so good!! My mom got biscuits & gravy, which I took a taste of (okay, more like I ate a biscuit).

On Sunday I went to a salvage flea market. There were so many cute refurbished & upcycled items! I ended up buying a salvaged dessert buffet table from the 50’s to go under my TV in my living room. I also got a bar cart, which is so beautiful! I am waiting to give a full view of these items until I move into my apartment. That’s a future post I can’t wait to do! Afterwards we got cupcakes from a pumpkin farm, which were so yummy!

How was your weekend? Comment below!
