I am obsessed with my house.

See that DARLING yellow lamp there?? Yeah, the one with the yellow velvet trim? H-OMG! I can't get over it.... IT WAS $14.00!!! FOURTEEN! And that CUTE ASS SHELF in the corner?! $5.00 effing dollars! Like, whaaaaaa???!?!?!?!?! 

"Oh my gosh, I wish I could decorate my house cute! But It's just too expensive."

But you just spent $14 on a coffee and bagel at Starbucks... I totally get it. I loveeeee my coffee! I don't go without it! Honestly, You have to adjust your priorities.

---My Biggest piece of advice.... DON'T CARE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK!!!---

I usually get this response...

"Ewww. you seriously go get stuff that other people have had in their house?"

UH YES! Yes I do. It might not be for everyone. Everything I buy, I CLEAN! Like, Deep clean the shit out of whatever you get. It's that simple!! I have found some things that I am so in love with but it can't be saved or cleaned and that is always a sad day! haha. It doesn't happen often! but it does!   

If you love it, that is ALL THAT MATTERS!! Seriously. There are quite a few people who don't vibe with my house. And that's cool too! (: 

I don't onlyyyyy shop thrift. These are some of my favorites: At Home, Ross, Target, TJ Maxx, Worldmarket, Urban Outfitters and IKEA. I always seem to find superrrr cute stuff at these places!! World Market and Urban Outfitters are a little bit on the pricey side, but hey, if you got it!!! (; 

  • ANOTHER THING!!! My paychecks don't stretch too far! So don't think I'm just rollin'! haha. Living in a space that I love to be in is super important to me! So I will set aside $20-$40 here and there and pop on over to Savers! (:

PLANTS. PLANTS. PLANTS.

You can get superrrrr cute plants at Home Depot, IKEA, Lowes, Cactus & Tropicals(If you're local), Paradise Palms(Again, local) and Walmart(Sometimes)! I know there are more, but these are my go-to's! 

Plants add soooo much to any space! I know... something you have to keep alive! *gasp* Not all plants are hard to take care of! I have figured out which ones I can and can't have in my house! I haven't always been able to keep plants alive! I have totallyyyyy killed some plants along the way... quite a few actually!!! Don't be ashamed! Do some research! You'll get the hang of it!! If you don't know where to start, I will be posting a full on step by step process soon! 

Well, I hope someone got something out of this! If no one reads this, that's cool too (; If you just like to see how weird my shit is, that's also rad! (;
