I actually had no idea that Amazon does this but they have a "black friday" type sale for Prime Members and it starts TODAY at 8pm Central time. It goes on for 30 hours and new sales drop throughout those 30 hours. I compiled a list of my favorites that are on sale and I can't wait to shop! Here's a link to the sale to check it out.

Moving home for anyone is such a culture shock. You're used to doing things your own way and then you're back at your parents house. For me, I kept myself busy and knew I had to make this home feel like my own so I started organizing all the drawers first in the bathroom and then moved into the kitchen. I've also learned throughout moving home how clean and organized I am. I knew I had to make my room feel as cozy as possible and I knew I had to feel comfortable in it as much as I could. First I started painting my room white, my favorite color. Then I moved all my furniture in from my apartment. My roomie was very into interior decor, the place really looked amazing and we had a great view of the Chicago skyline. I do miss it for sure. But I do have to say, the things I had in my apartment looked so much better now in a room with nice wood floor, no pop corn ceilings, and an all white aesthetic. I was instantly excited, Thank God. I organized the hell out of my closet, put winter clothes in boxes, and made my room exactly what I wanted it to be. Chic, bright, and organized. I ordered the prints above my bed off of World Market. My nightstands are from one of the Zara window displays. My old roommate does the windows for Chicago, Boston, among other cities and she brought these home for me one day since I desperately needed night stands. My bed came with just regular black buttons in the headboard but I got thumb tacks off Amazon and stuck them in as buttons to add a gold element and spice it up a bit. The dead roses are an interesting piece of decor and a collection of roses I've gotten from my boyfriend, Colin. The first bouquet started to die and I realized it kind of look cool dead so I just started to add more from him to it. More details below where everything is from but I continuously try to redo each room in the house to give me something to work on and something to do while living in the burbs so you'll be seeing some posts about each room my brother and I have done. Coincidentally at the same time I moved home, my brother lived at home as well and we tag teamed a lot of this. He is the reason I'm not taken after selling so much furniture on the app OfferUp and 5miles. Also, thank goodness for my cousins that live a block away from my parents house, I could always escape there if I needed some change. Moral of the story, making my home feel like my own home helped me a ton and feeling in control helped my anxiety. I've also focused on saving money and found some new hobbies that I love, aka remodeling homes. Do you have any anxiety remedies?

Insider trick: I painted the world map on my dresser because it was sold out online and was pretty pricey. I bought the canvas at Michaels (when it was 50% off during Christmas time) along with the some gold canvas paint color. Here is where you can buy the original if you don't want to paint one. If you're interested in me painting one for you, please send me an email or post a comment and let me know.

Hi, I'm Ela! I started this blog to share all my knowledge of fashion, home decor, travel and more. I previously worked as a men's model agent (see that post here) and now I work in advertising. Majoring in Fashion Business, I've always had a love towards fashion and love sharing about it. I get so excited getting pieces for a steal (my Polish background does that to me,) I love to travel anywhere and everywhere, and I love interior decor and turning something old into something beautiful and new.
