Apartment Decorating

I'm so excited to be moving into my own apartment in a few weeks! I'll admit - I will miss living at home, and know I'll be homesick. But I know it will be great to have my own space...and my complex has a pool!

The hardest thing has been picking stuff out to decorate the apartment. Originally, I wanted to go with a boho theme in the living room, but now I think I want more of a beachy theme. So far, the living room is the only room that I have most of the stuff for. I have yet to buy stuff for the kitchen, bathroom or bedroom! But at least I have a really comfy couch ;)

I'm still in the process of buying stuff and there is still a lot on my to-do list. I wanted to share my "wish-list" with you all and see what you think & what you would add. Perhaps there are things I am forgetting!

Here is an image of what I'm trying to go for in the living room:

I love blues and greens, so that's what I tried to go with. 

And here are a few things I really want!

Area Rug
I really need an area rug for the living, but also a smaller one for the bedroom. I love patterned rugs like this one...or maybe I'll look for a chevron one?

Ginger Jar
I first saw these on Mackenzie Horan's blog and loved them. They are a great decorative piece to put on a side table or shelf.

Storage Shelf
I really need some sort of small storage space. I plan on putting this behind the back of my couch, since my couch will stick out from the wall a bit. It will be a good way to disguise that and have some extra shelf safe. Luckily, I already have a big bookshelf for all my books :)

I have no kitchenware yet except for cups. My sister makes fun of me because she says I buy everything else (like wall paintings, frames, etc.) but not the necessities like things to eat out of haha. Oops.

Wall Art
This photo is from an Etsy seller. I love looking through Etsy for prints or photography. I want a few for the living room, and want to find a big, horizontal print for over the bed.

Throw Pillows

I haven't bought any pillows yet because I'm deciding on if I want to buy them or make my own. Can you tell I love blues and greens? :) Currently, some pillows at Target are buy 3 get the 4th one free, so if you're in need of some pillows, check it out!

That's all I can think of for now but I know there is still a ton I'm missing. If you think of any apartment necessities, please leave a comment below or tweet me

Summatime Concerts ☼

I love summertime concerts because it's the best feeling to listen to your favorite music in the warm weather with good friends.  I found some concerts that I'm looking to go to next month! All of these are in the Tri-State area BUT if you click on the tour name it will take you to an official website where you can see if they're coming to a town near you! 

Link to my blog 'The Earbud' with the concert dates, places, and times are HERE HERE HERE :)

Who are you looking to go see in concert this last month of summer?
