October Favorites! (Miscellaneous)

Happy first post-Blogtober post! Wow that’s a mouthful.

So I do this thing where I go through phases  in being obsessed with all sorts of different things depending on the week, or day, or month, so I thought it might be fun to do a few of my favorite things through the month of October. I tried forming some kind of order to these, but honestly, there isn’t one, so we’re just going to roll with it.

The first thing I’e been obsessed with is something I’ve talked about here before-my sloth blanket. I literally have carried this thing all over my apartment with me for the entire month. I sleep with it at night. Bobby knows that if I ask him to get me a blanket, I mean the sloth blanket. There’s just something so absurdly comforting about sloths in Halloween costumes! And honestly, it’ll probably just be a constant favorite. It’s too soft and too cozy to be a seasonal item.

My next favorite is more of a general category than a specific item, and that is CUTE SCHOOL SUPPLIES. I’m obsessed with my planner this year; it’s one of the Happy Planners from Michael’s. It’s big and colorful, and the layout is super cute. And how adorable is my pen?! It’s from this great website called Blog Prop Shop. The crystals inside were what originally sold me. I had so much trouble figuring out what color I wanted to get, but the pink goes so nicely with my planner, I definitely made the right choice! And it just writes so smoothly, I’m obsessed. If you’re a school supplies junkie like me, you know how I feel.

The final item is something I didn’t know I needed until I had it, and WOW is it a lifesaver! This adorable pink dish (also from Blog Prop Shop) is the perfect addition to my vanity/desk setup! I have this cute little fall aesthetic going, and it fits perfectly! Right now, it’s holding a cute set of bridal hair ties, and I use it to hold my rings when I’m doing my makeup, going to take a shower, basically whenever I need to put them down and not lose them. It’s pretty sturdy, too, so I’m thinking it’ll just become my go-to when I need a cute place to hold literally anything.

Blogtober Day 18: My Spooky Apartment!

It’s the time of year for the best part of holidays…DECORATING! My roommate & I have a box of miscellaneous holiday decorations in the closet (I’ll admit Christmas is overflowing to other places) and I love getting to open it and see all the cool things I forgot we had. Of course, I always end up buying more every year, so God Bless Bobby because we’re going to have to have an entire room in our house for all my themed items (Love you babe).

I thought it would be fun to share some of the things that I use to decorate my apartment! I love seeing everyone else’s decorations, so I’m here to hop on the bandwagon!

First is my FAVORITE! I have basically the coolest relatives alive, so one of them sent me this HALLOWEEN SLOTH BLANKET (Shirley you are my HERO), and I literally carry this thing around my apartment with me. I use it at night, at my desk, on my couch, like EVERYWHERE. I’ll honestly keep using it after Halloween, but right now it makes me feel so festive.

NEXT: Spooky candles, spooky Target pumpkins…I’ve definitely shown this before on here, but it’s still one of my favorite setups. And it has changed- my plant babies had to come inside because it’s cold! Also, that candle is called Crisp Fall Night, and it’s so wonderful that I’m burning it without Bobby even though it’s “our” candle. (Sorry not sorry).

SPOOKY NIGHTSTAND

So, most of this stuff is actually here year round, like the little hedgehogs/bat, the black statue, the letters (my roommate & my sorority), and the skeleton succulent, but honestly they fit in so well with all the holiday decor. The vase I threw together today by shoving the little pumpkin garland into a vase; it was too tangled to unknot and hang, so I figured this was a good repurpose. These are just a couple little fake leaf/acorn bundles from the dollar store, but they work great! And of course, the little baby pumpkins from Target.

That’s just a little glimpse, mostly because I don’t have many “displays.” There’s little pumpkins here and there all around the apartment, but these are the main areas of focus!

How do you decorate your house? Send me pictures! Tell me! I’m always down to go bigger and better…!
