Shopping Trip!!!

So, I have a bit of a confession to make...  No it's nothing too terribly scandaleous and some most of you probably have the same issue (come on, you have to admit it).  Oh, but I haven't told you what it is yet have I?

Well, I am a bit of a shopaholic.  Certainly not on the same scale as Becky Bloomwood but certainly worthy of the title.

So, in order to relish a bit more of the joy of my new purchases / scare off any nearby cravings, I'm going to write this blog to show you some fancy new duds I recently acquired for my bedroom!

First I have another confession, the headboard of my bed hasn't been attached to my bed due to a lack of motivation to do so partly and also because I knew it would cover the picture when I did attach it.
So, since I've decided that I'm not a fan of the only black framed object in the room anymore I also decided to attach the headboard.  Here it is attached.  See what I mean that it's too high for the frame?
 Now I needed something smaller to fit the space.  I went out to Home Goods (my new favorite place in the world, honestly, that store is like crack for home do gooders ((see what I did there... gosh, I die)) and got this fun print for $25!  I like the green as an accent color and the teal goes decent with my comforter.  I honestly thought they'd go better together but since the comforter is my sister's and will be staying here once I move I'll be getting a new one anyway.  I might go white with fun pillows like HERE or I also love THIS ONE from Urban Outfitters.
 Anyway, notice the pillows?  The blue one is my sisters I stole for the picture and the green one is my new favorite throw pillow (Also Home Goods $12) (Any other YHL readers think it would be a dead ringer for their green shag rug?)

But this is what it looks like now with my random pillows I've had since middle school.  Yes, the one does say Kiss Me (It was a V-Day gift from my mom).

So there you have it!  Anyone else have a bit of a shopping problem love? What about embarrassing memorabilia you still have displayed for some reason?  Hope to hear from you!



  1. I love that new print! Perfect for summer and perfect for the color scheme in your room :)

    I tend to hold onto lots of memorabilia like ticket stubs and autographed pictures. Like right now, I have a poster signed by Dr. Drew framed on my desk. Weird!

  2. So worth the switch up! Adds some great life to the room!
