What I've learned living alone, and a little apartment tour.

This year I embarked on a journey of epic portions, living alone. After spending half of my college experience with less than desirable roommate situations I decided to pack my bags and move further away from campus to a place of my own.

But let me tell you, living alone is honestly really freaking weird sometimes. Like the things I’m so used to just having in my house growing up aren’t there anymore. Yesterday I had to buy flour, which was strange because the realization that I didn't have it was startling. My mom is a baker, and a pretty avid cook so things like flour, sugar, vanilla extract etc just lived in our pantry. They don't anymore.

It's also odd to have so much autonomy over a space. Don't get me wrong, it's also one of the best parts, but knowing it's absolutely up to me whether my entire apartment sinks or swims felt extremely daunting at first. Despite that, the experience is matured me in ways I'll be forever grateful for. I've learned 100% accountability, budgeting and a couple of things in the kitchen too.

This is all a really long introduction to what's essentially a visual tour of my apartment. I live in a cozy little studio apartment, so essentially the entire thing is just one big room with a kitchen, closet, and a full-sized bathroom. It's definitely a one person place because honestly, it's tiny. But I absolutely love living here and am planning to stay through the end of college. It's my first time decorating my own space for Christmas, and thanks to Target I love the way it came out.

As you can tell I'm a huge fan of neutrals and natural fibers, and so it was super fun getting to do that throughout this little space.

If you want to know where anything is from I'll happily reply with links if I have them but just know the answer is most likely Target, Homegoods or TJ Maxx.

Until next time,
