Ikea Shopping List


Finally a wishlist that I am now turning into a shopping list! We have found a house. I am over the moon excited. I feel like I have been neglecting Eager Emily for the past few weeks. But there has been a lot going on. Along with the house that we are moving into Friday I started a new job today. It seems like everything comes together at once. So I have been a busy bee. And I am itching to get to idea. So I have picked a few things that I am pretty sure we are going to be buying. If not on the first trip then on the second.

1. Lill Lace Curtain- $3.99, I want to get a ton of these. I really want to create a canopy over the bed. Also these would be great to just have on all of the windows. Example: Here & Here

2. KALLAX- $139, This is the new version of the Expedit. I know that has had a lot of people in an uproar. But I think they look similar enough and will do exactly what I want. I am itching to style some shelves like here and here. Weird thing for a 20 something to say, huh.

3. Tarva- $149, I am in need of a new dresser. I really am loving the look of stained top dressers with the bottom painted. Inspiration.

4. BEKVÄM- $14.99, This is such a cute little stool.

5. ASKHOLMEN- $19.99, The house we are moving into has a great screened in porch and I can not wait to fill it up with plants.

6. VITTSJÖ- $139, I have mentioned this before. The hacks of the Vittsjo look fairly simple, but they have a big impact. Like the one here or here. I especially like it when the glass shelves are replaced with wood.

Vintage Home Haul

 Oh boy I went on another home goods shopping spree. This time I went to an estate sale with Steve. We actually went on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday we stopped by and realized we had no cash on us. Which looking back was a horrible idea. We should have went and got cash right then. So I purchased the crazy floral fabric in the last picture for 25 cents and left. When we were there Steve fell in love with a cabinet so we decided to come back on Sunday when everything was 50% off. The items that we really loved ended up not being there anymore. Steve's cabinet and these awesome wire outdoor chairs that I fell in love with were gone. However, we quickly got over our disappointment of those items being gone and found some more goodies. We braved waking up early on the day of the time change and were not going home empty handed. I ended up with a bunch of goodies.

I think that these two pitchers are really classic and would look great with hydrangeas in them. I am not really sure what they are called I think they are referred to as salt glaze, but I am not sure.  If you know the name of pitchers like this please let me know.

Then I found this little guy. I usually do not go for pottery pieces like this, but I like the cloudy gray bit of glaze on the top. There is a mark on the bottom, but it is  not legible.

Then I found these great old maps. The Savannah map is not that old, but the map of Smyrna is from the early 70's. I love the colors in the Smyrna map. And it would look really cool hanging up. Especially in a lucite frame that I found a diy for here

 A neat thing I found on the map was the street that my Great Aunt Edna lived off of.

 Then I picked up a bedspread. It is in really good shape and would look great on my bed.

Then here is the fabric that I picked up on Saturday. It would be cute to make into a little curtain for a kitchen.

With all of the house items if you have been following me for a while you might be wondering if we have finally found a house. Sadly, we have not. Though we are going to look at one on Friday. It has been really frustrating. A lot of people are just not calling us back or not replying to any emails. But I am hopeful that Friday will go well! Also I am getting my hair cut tomorrow too. My super long hair has started to get really annoying. It has been getting caught on things and tangled lately.

Forever 21 Haul

I took a trip to Forever 21 the other day. In a post the other week I made a Forever 21 wishlist. I was about to hit the confirm button on an online order when I realized that I had time to just go down to the store. My goal when I entered the store was to find my red dress. Then if I found anything else I liked after that it was extra. Well I found my dress!

It is absolutely adorable. The weather has taken a turn for the cold again here or I would be wearing this everyday. The detail on the sleeves is fantastic. Also it is a little bit longer for a Forever 21 dress. All around I think the quality of this feels higher than usual for Forever 21.

I Love London Ankle Socks - $1.50
Then I decided to check out the accessories and the first thing I picked up were these adorable little London socks. I just thought they were cute and for a $1.50 I was not going to put them back.

Heart Shaped Sunglasses (Similar) - $7.80 & Must Have V-Neck - $5.80
Then I picked up some adorable heart shaped sunglasses. Looking back I wish I had found the ones with red rims instead. But for like $7.80 and my sunglasses breaking habit I thought they were a good buy. Also I picked up a simple grey v-neck. I liked this one because it felt a little bit thicker than some of their other tees and is perfect for a casual outfit.

French Bulldog Compact Mirror - $3.80
Lastly, but certainly not least is this adorable little mirror that I picked up in the check out line. Forever 21's check out lines always get me. Atleast 9 times out of 10 I end up adding something to my basket. I love the adorable little Frenchy and his bow tie. I think I need to call him Mr. Smith.

What are you loving at Forever 21 lately? I would love to hear some of your favorites. I am constantly posting finds from Forever 21 on my pinterest board

Also I am going to be doing a giveaway soon! Because of this I am going to add a little survey on the right sidebar for everyone to answer how they subscribe to Eager Emily. When I am making up the giveaway widget I do not want to leave anyone out!

CVS Haul

The other day I ventured into CVS to pick up a few things. I was going in particular for Seche Vite. My nails have not been painted for a while mostly because I ran out of my top coat. This is my first time trying the Seche Vite top coat. I have tried the base coat and liked it a good bit. I also picked up a nail buffing block. The block is relatively inexpensive and a must have for doing your nails. I picked up one of the Scandaleyes shadowsticks by Rimmel in the color Bad Girl Bronze. The Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof Kohl Kajal nude eye pencil is one of my favorites. The eye crayon is perfect for making a warm smokey eye. I used this for the concert went to and it stayed all night. There are a few more colors I am interested in Gossip Green, Paranoid Purple, and Guilty Grey. Lastly, I picked up the Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Treatment Mask. I have not tried a sheet mask before and this one seemed rather nice. Though I have heard that they are not as effective as Asian beauty masks. I have been looking at the My Beauty Diary masks. If you have tried any great tissue masks let me know if you liked them!
