An Anthropologie Haul

You guys know of my love for the home section of Anthropologie. I already have quite a few items that I adore, including my beautiful white duvet, and every time I pass this store I like to go in for a little peek. Today, these babies stole my heart. They are called "Measuring Hedgies" and are the closest I am going to get to owning actual hedgehogs. I mean come on... who doesn't want these as a pet? Especially with little golden ears and feet! These are technically measuring cups, but will double as an adorable kitchen accessory. I can't stand how cute these little guys are! I also think these would make a perfect birthday or housewarming gift for a friend... I need to keep these in mind ;)

As I was poking around the kitchen section checking out coffee mugs, of which they have the CUTEST designs, I saw these little chalkboard canisters. They come with lots of different colored tops, but these silver ones I fell in love with. I'm not sure what I'm going to put in them yet, but I am designing a little coffee nook in my kitchen so these might be perfect to hold sweetener and straws.

As I was heading to checkout I saw this little book of love poems, and decided to treat myself. I was feeling extra affectionate, and took it as a sign that I had decided earlier in the day to do a blush and gold themed coffee table set-up. This little book was meant to be mine.

I'm pretty happy with my haul; each and every one of these items are adorable and will be perfect in my new home. Have you guys gotten any new home decor goodies recently?

  8. If you like those poems you should see the movie Il Postino. It's a romantic comedy with Pablo's poetry in it. It's one of my favorite movies. It's a foreign film. I forget from which country, but it has English subtitles. It won awards.

  12. Hi! Could you do a video or blogpost about being half Turkish (do you speak the language, have you been there, do you like the food, do you feel half Turkish)?

  13. Elle, I have owned a hedgehog. His name was Herbert and he was very cute, though he had quite an attitude! I know a place where you can get great quality hedgehogs, along with accessories for them. www.carolinastormhedgehogs.com is where I got my lovely Herbert. Larry (the owner) is very nice and is very helpful when it comes to questions or concerns.

  16. Oh my goodness I saw those hedgehogs in my feed and died a little. They are too adorable! I've been loving gold accents in decor lately, and those guys are just perfect! Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters really have the best things for your home.

  22. Hey Elle! I adore reading your blogs in my spare time, I tend to feel a tad more jovial when I see a new post up on both of your blogs. Your new decor is very fun and cute! I think it fits perfectly with your home and your whimsical personality and style.

    Just some advice for your blog, as much as I love hauls, this is a lifestyle blog! For other lifestyle blogs they post their daily adventures, doing little activities and what they ate (at a restaurant? home cooked meal?) all in photos! I think it is great that you have a lifestyle blog to help us get to know you better, which is a great idea, but we really still do not get to see what your life is like because your not posting about it. Bloggers like 'The Londoner' (http://www.thelondoner.me/) or Zoe (http://www.zoella.co.uk/) have so many beautiful pictures of vacations or just things that happen throughout their day, which are just so inspiring and really help your viewers and fans be more connected and have a glimpse into your life. People really do appreciate that. What your doing now is great with your posts, but I feel like you can do a bit more, even if it is just posting about a good book you are reading (which I would love to see). Anyway, this is just meant to be constructive criticism which I am saying to help! I am not trying to be mean, and I hope this was helpful! I hope you give it some thought! I feel like a lot of your fans would love this and attract a lot more readers to your blog! :)

  23. Elle, I really enjoy your home decor and organization posts. I'm glad you started an entire blog for it! Anyways, the measure hedgies are too adorable to pass up! And I hope you enjoy your reading Pablo Neruda, because he is one of my favorite poets out there and his love poems are epic. Keep up the great job in blogging. It really inspires me to redecorate and maintain some organization in my room. :)

  27. This is an awfully cute haul! I purchased a similar type of canister, only it's glass and has a knob lid not a screw on one, so really it's only similar because of the chalkboard detail. haha I got it from the Christmas Tree Store, such a fun place to explore! :) http://dreamliveandrepeat.blogspot.com/

  28. To die for cute!! Thanks for sharing - can't wait to see these in an updated apartment tour!

  34. Awe the hedgehog measuring cups are super cute!! I totally want to go out and get them. But, my only reservation is its accuracy. Have you used them and know how accurate these measuring cups are?

  35. I came to know about the word "anthropologie" through your videos Elle. Inspired by anthro's vanity mirror I did a DIY version of it http://whatsthetopic.com/diy-anthropologie-edelweiss-vanity-mirror/
    it turned out pretty good!

  36. That love poems book is written by an author that's talked about in How I Met Your Mother it's my favorite episode called "The Naked Man" It's hilarious and works 2 out of 3 times.

  37. Hi Elle! First of all, I just love this blog! I really enjoy reading the posts! :)

    I have two questions about blog design..

    I am currently re-designing my blog and I am struggling with the fonts on my blog. I'd like to use a font from Google Web Fonts (it's a website with over 500 fonts on it) but then you have to do something with the HTML code and stuff and I watched lots of tutorials already but I just can't seem to do it! I am also wondering how I could create a nice header for my blog..

    Do you have any tips for me? Or do you know a good website with tips on it? :)
    Thank you and have a wonderful day!
