Turn your Apartment Into an Oasis with These Must-Have Home Decor Items

Having a home or apartment decorated with the most unique modern pieces is always the dream.  Whether you’re the type of person that’s never home during the daylight, or someone who works from home, we all know that loving your living space can be a great form of daily inspiration.

When you wake up in the morning and you’re at your most visually vulnerable, there’s nothing like a little bit of bath mat encouragement.

Urban Outfitters

And if that doesn’t inspire you, hopefully this bath mat will.

Your bedroom should reflect your personality and individual taste.  This feminine headboard is the perfect combination of antique and modern.

Light up your life with these ultra chic candles, lamps, and lights.

You should be thinking about functionality and design at every step of the way.  Each tabletop should make a statement just like this one.

Anthropologie ($498)

Use your space wisely.  This chest of drawers is the perfect tabletop and convenient form of storage.  It’s bright and rustic, perfect to lighten up any room.

Sometimes it’s best to dig down to our roots and live old-school style on the floor.  These floor couches create a comfortable space to lounge on and take in the beauty of your apartment or home.

Urban Outfitters ($219)

Turning your home into your personal playground doesn’t have to happen all at once.  Like relationships, sometimes you have to search a while until you find your love.  But hopefully when you do, you’ll have all the furniture and accessories you need to make your Netflix and Chill nights a dream come true.

Love,

Kitchen Accessories that will Change your Life…or at Least Make it More Glamorous

See bottom of article for links to each item

From colorful dishes to elegant coasters and funny flasks, there are an endless number of cool kitchen gadgets to find at Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters.  I’ve picked out some of my favorites above!

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that help add a dash of positivity to our lives. For example, your morning coffee ritual could be a lot more satisfying if you’re drinking it from the donut-shaped mug above!  Or, perhaps something as small as the heart-shaped mug could remind you that you are loved.

For those quirky souls out there, the avocado cutting board may be the showstopper kitchen accessory of your dreams.  As someone who adores anything pink, my heart skipped a beat when I saw the pink toaster.  Although I rarely ever make toast, if I did, this toaster would be on my “to buy” list for sure!

For all you soup or cereal fans, the set of big colorful bowls would surely add some much-needed color to your life! Opening up your beers with the pink stone bottle opener would definitely turn some heads, as long as you do it at the beginning of the party before everyone is too drunk to notice.

But in all seriousness, how about that donut mug?! I’m in love.

With all the items ranging from $12 to $150, a small amount of money could go a long way in making your kitchen the perfect reflection of you.

Love,
Molly

Your Weekend Pick-Me-Up Starts at Home

Every now and then all of us could use an infusion of positivity in our lives.  Surrounding ourselves with awesomeness and reminders of our awesomeness is a new trend that more of us should embrace!

I looked through pages and pages of Urban Outfitter’s home goods to find these inspiring gems!

While coffee is a great way to inspire good vibes in the morning, a pillow could help as well!

Urban Outfitters

When you’re standing in front of the mirror in the morning after waking up, a time when you’re you’re most visually vulnerable, a bath mat compliment couldn’t hurt!

Light up your life with this inspirational LED box lamp.  When you strive for the best, you should achieve the best!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Let’s Go a Little Boho

Boho: The perfect combination of the old vintage-like looks we love, but with all the glory of our modern day chic-ness.  You can find bohemian styles at Forever 21, Anthropologie, Shopbop, Free People and many more stores.  This caftan from Shopbop works as a dress for a weekend festival in San Francisco, or acts as the perfect bathing suit cover-up for your vacation.

Like Charlize Theron showed us at the Critics Choice awards, a black dress with cut-outs could be the perfect way to turn heads at whatever party you attend.  Keep the look light and boho with a floral design on a black cut-out dress like the one featured below.

Get the Best Look for Coachella

As we all know, it’s festival season.  Coachella is this weekend.  Tonight you’re probably scouring your closet wondering what the hell you’re going to wear.  You’ll be outdoors, you’ll have minimal prepping time, you’ll be jamming out to your favorite tunes, you’ll be hot crammed in between thousands of people, so what should you wear to stand out?

Start with the basics.  Consider the stores with a boho, rocker “I want to rebel slightly” vibe: Urban Outfitters, Brandy Melville, and Free People.

White skinny jeans are great in theory.  They’re hot, sexy, a little feminine chic country, but they can also get dirty…Urban Outfitters is offering a pair of white skinny jeans on sale for $39.00.  I’d say jump on that like a fat kid on a Smartie if white is your thing.

If you’re more into the dark neutrals, you’re in luck because Urban Outfitters is offering a pair of black skinny jeans for $39.00.

Pair them with high heel black booties, a ripped grey or white t-shirt, a black leather body harness, and you’ll be the one that they should hire to be on stage at Coachella!  I’d say visit Nasty Gal for their black leather body harness…but I just bought one of their last ones in their hottest (and cheapest yet not cheap) style…oops.  I couldn’t resist.

Next we have Brandy Melville.  Yes, you may have to arm wrestle a bunch of pre-teens to get your favorite styles, but if one size fits all is your size, then Brandy Melville could have the perfect wardrobe pieces for you.

Rock the concert in a grey mini cotton/viscose dress from Brandy Melville.  Make it a bit more slammin’ with a chunky necklace, a pair of black country booties, and some wickedly straight, shiny hair.

Last but not least, let the people be free in Free People.

This sleeveless roll neck slouchy shirt will look great paired with jeans, a skirt, or over a pair of overalls.  Throw on a long gold necklace overtop.  If you’re wondering where to go for that, check out indie designer, Vanessa Mooney.

Looking for something a bit slouchy on the bottom?  Go boyfriend, go army green, go three-quartered length, go slightly off-kilter.

Last but not least, you need to stand out in the crowd in some way.  A jazzy ring could work, a bracelet is good too, but how about a ring and bracelet combo? Check out Nasty Gal for hot hand piece jewelry that could have you feeling totally rocker-chic.

Perhaps you’re one of those lucky ones going to Coachella this weekend, perhaps you’re just planning a hot weekend filled with a Shark Tank marathon; don’t worry, it’s all good.  These items can take you from Coachella audience, to lounging around your house in style, or chilling in your favorite bar.

Have a great weekend.

Love,

J. Molly
