I never understood why my mom found so much pleasure in redecorating the house until I moved out on my own. It turns out I love decorating my condo almost as much as I love styling outfits! Even something as simple as adding a new succulent plant makes me a lot happier.

Unfortunately my place is way too small to do any real decorating, but I’d love to someday live somewhere as Pinterest/Urban Outfitters-worthy as Claire Marshall’s home. Until then, these are some cute home essentials that you can fit even in the tiniest of homes!

These are all things currently on my wishlist or things I already own/have something similar to. They’d be perfect for dorm rooms or college/university apartments as well. Plus, I made sure to include all Prime products so you can get free same day or two-day shipping.

If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up here. I recently discovered Amazon sells groceries and toilet paper, and my life has been forever changed. You can literally find anything and everything on there!

    Decorating my house is my #1 hobby! I’d happily decorate and redecorate if only someone would fund it! 🙂

  • Jenny Rodriguez

    I want it all! These are my favorite colors and it’s all so chic!

  • I love this post, Jessica! So cute. I definitely need to find a tabletop mirror of some sort but I can’t decide between one like this that you posted, or an LED one. What do you think?

    • Thank you Camille!! I definitely think you should get an LED one – I didn’t realize they existed until they appeared on my homepage under “related to items you’ve viewed” lol. I have a non-LED one right now, but it’s pretty beat up so I’ll probably get the LED one next!

      • That’ll probably be my next buy! Hope to see it on your blog sometime soon 🙂

  • I have the camera lens travel mug! It’s perfect for toting my coffee to work in if I don’t finish it in the morning lol.


  • Great list! LOVE the doughnut and shaggy pink pillow… x

  • shootingstarsmag

    Cute items! I love those cat mugs. 🙂

    I remember thinking the same thing about my mom when I first moved out. Love that donut pillow!

    I’m loving those lights! I also really need to get myself some makeup storage like that!

    • Acrylic makeup storage boxes are so useful! I bought all mine at Muji before I even knew Amazon sold them and they were double the price 🙁

  • So many fun things! Love those pretty lights!

    • It’s so cute haha! I was actually inspired to add a pink silk pillow to my wishlist because of you hehe 🙂

  • So many cute choices! The cat mug & spoon set are so adorable. :]

    • I love anything with cats or puppies on it haha 🙂

  • Teresa Desouza

    I have been looking EVERYWHERE for a white mongolian faux fur pillow! Thanks for this find 🙂 The pink one is super cute too!

    • Haha I want the pink one sooo badly, but throw pillows would be a bad idea for my couch because I always lie on it and they’d probably all fall off 🙁
