I love getting a sneak peek into other bloggers’ shopping carts, so I thought I would do a quick roundup of some of my favorite purchases as of late…let me know if you’ve tried any of these items!
Peacock chair: I had been wanting one of these for ages and finally found a great one on Craigslist. It was still fairly pricy, but it was a great deal compared to ones I’d seen elsewhere online. The best part was that the seller lived only a few blocks away, so I didn’t have to worry about fitting it into a car to bring it home (although I did look a little silly walking through Dupont carrying the chair over my shoulders–and got a few compliments on it along the way!). I’m loving how it looks in my upstairs space, and it’s super comfortable and adds a great boho touch.
Linen comforter. I’ve constantly been hearing rave reviews about linen bedding items and have used linen sheets once or twice but wanted to look for a comforter or throw blanket made from that material as well. I actually picked mine up at Marshalls of all places, but there are many similar options online. It’s perfect for folding over a plain comforter or duvet color or using on its own, and the fabric is just so comfortable and is an ideal weight for this time of year.
White noise machine. I’m lucky in the sense that I usually have no trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night, even if I’m in a new location. However, Alaina posted on IG stories about this sound machine a few months back, and I was curious and wanted to scoop it up to give it a try! I don’t use it every night, but I’ll turn it on if if it’s especially loud when I’m going to bed (which can happen frequently, as my apartment is located on a major street in an area filled with bars and restaurants) or if I’m feeling restless and want some white noise in the background. You can choose what “sound” you want it to play, but I just use the generic white noise setting each time…I don’t really know who would find the tropical sounds appealing! Obviously, there are free apps that do the same thing as this machine, but for $30, I feel it was a worthwhile purchase.
Bedside lamps. I have changed up my bedside lamp situation more times than I can count over the past few months, oops. It took me forever to find a setup that I was satisfied with aesthetically, but I think I’ve finally arrived at a winner. I spotted these gold lamps on Jess’s blog awhile back and waited a bit to order them–since my preferences change all the time, I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t going to change my mind–and thankfully they were still available and shipped out super quickly. I love the gold and the classic shape. I believe Target released a similar style at some point, but I haven’t seen it online anymore. At $50 each, they’re a great buy for really any room.
Annie Selke throw. I snagged this throw on major sale and am in love with the pattern. I really shouldn’t have bought two bedding-related items back to back (#priorities) but they match and work as a set! The tie-dye pattern (designed by Bunny Williams) is perfect for summer months goes with the rest of my blue and white bedroom decor.
Lululemon tote bag. This bag is also a fun tie-dye print and will be perfect for summer travel as a carry on. I have a black Lululemon bag that’s similar and holds all of my gym stuff, though this bag is slightly larger. The material is sturdy, looks super easy to clean, and the bag as a whole got great reviews, so I’m excited to test it out as I travel later this week! It’s seriously soooo spacious!
