A few months ago I shared the Black art that I was scoping out for my new apartment as a manifestation tool because there was no apartment in sight, y’all.
Now that I’ve finally found the right place and moved in, I’ve been shopping non-stop to create the perfect space for myself and my son.
Between furniture goldmines like Wayfair, Amazon and Urban Outfitters I’ve been able to put something together that I think will put a smile on my face every time I walk through the door.
As a single working mom, I’ve also put a lot of thought into how much I spend and where to invest my hard-earned money.
I figured it only right to share the steals I’ve come across in case it tickles anyone else’s fancy as much as it does mine.
Behold, everything I’ve purchased for my home so far.

Marion Canopy Bed, $119
I’m all about glam and a little bit of subtle drama. This gold canopy checks those boxes and took it easy on my pockets at $119.
