Fall Must- Haves

Wishing the happiest first day of fall to all my fellow basic babes out there! May your day be filled with pumpkin spice lattes, darker lip shades, a fresh black mani and alllll the fall fashion. As for me, I’ll be sitting in my favorite Fairmount coffee shop, OCF, watching people be scared by Eastern State Penitentiary’s “Terror Behind The Walls” (PS – if you’re planning on coming to Philly sometime this fall, you should TOTALLY put this on your list of to-dos!).

Shop my fall must-haves at the links below!

Making a House Feel Like Home

GUYS! WE BOUGHT A HOUSE in our favorite city, Philadelphia- and it was stressful and terrifying and hard and exactly the opposite of everything I thought it would be 🙂 BUT in the end, it was totally worth it and while I’m still adjusting, I’m happy to say that the new place is starting to feel like home.

I’m a firm believer that a new place doesn’t feel like your own until there are pictures on the walls and a big pretty carpet on the floor. That’s why when we moved in I knew I had to go interior shopping ASAP, so I hit up the usual suspects – HomeGoods, Pier 1, West Elm, and my two personal favorites, Facebook Marketplace and local thrift stores. I’m not even kidding – Facebook marketplace has some GEMS that have real character you can’t find in a store. Don’t knock it till ya try it.

Anyway, my personal interior style is distressed chic. I like bright whites combined with dark accent colors and lots of vintage pieces. While our house is still a work in progress, I think we finished my favorite room – the living room! Product details linked below – happy decorating.
