NYC: A productive day spent outside my apartment 😀 furniture shopping, exploring brooklyn

so this is what we have it’s kind of dark so you guys you guys over here *ding* so it’s actually more like this this entrance is like this
back entrance to go through right here and these are the measurements why am I
taking measures because decorating me please and the first order of business
before we talk about decorating my face my face my place I’m gonna talk about my
face yeah a little sty baby growing on my eyelids it’s so cute it’s so
unavoidable so I’m gonna stand a little further away so you guys don’t really
see it you fingers on my words instead of focusing on my sty so this is
measurements of my apartment cuz I’m gonna start I feel inspired to start
doing something with it all so this has been here for a way too long and I just
want to I think it’s time I think it’s time and I think this is the weekend so
we’re going to go to design within reach the outlet in Brooklyn because I spent 30 minutes before reading looking up furniture on
Urban Outfitters, CB2 and Crate & Barrel and the ones that I wanted
were either sold out or back ordered and I just.. I like seeing things I like touching things I like you know.. like being able to see
and then envision and then yeah.. so let’s go do that I’m going to change, put on a hat,
put on sunglasses and let’s gooo ~ we’re here ~ that was quite the trip whoaa ~ just walked by this little courtyard haven’t found anything yet
but I’m so glad I came out because this area is so cool oh my god ~ I would never come here if
I didn’t go to Design Within Reach and now I’m headed to ABC Carpet I think it should be straight ahead oh my god ~ another little pocket between all these big buildings are little courtyards there’s like so many rows and rows of warehouses so cool ~ so cool ~ waao wao waao ~ heading there ABC Carpet & Home see you guys there ~ *whispers* I really like this this is pretty I like it ended up at a shopping center with Bed Bath & Beyond, World Market,
Saks 5th Outlets like all the outlets are here my eye is still pulsing if anything.. I think it got bigger *cries* but just resting before I go back home why… whyy ~ let’s go sunset is so pretty

  38. Jessica Maia says:

    Fun fact: chairs are expensive because they are the hardest to make of all the furniture.

    Idk what your budget is and what else you're looking for, but I work in finishing for a handmade furniture company called Stor New York. We have an Etsy and a show room in Brooklyn, but we dont make chairs! 🙃

  53. S. Roberson says:

  54. Amanda Cook says:

    I just finished furnishing my apartment this weekend!

  55. Biji Smythe says:

    I'm sorry, I can't watch these long ass purple commercials

  56. Larisa P. says:

    You should consider Craiglist/Facebook groups for people looking to get rid of their apartment furniture! You can find some gems that are relatively cheap because people move in/out of apartments all the time in New York, and are looking to get rid of things (Also a good potential for people who want to pick up houseplants). Just a thought! It takes a little more time than going right to a store and buying something, but it's fun and saves money.

  57. Ava Thyen says:

    0:42 "tent/10" 😂😂😂
    I love noticing all the clever little things you do in editing 🌟🌟

  58. Patrick Byas says:


  59. Leyla Zobel says:

    Hi Rowena, will be visiting NYC in mid september. What is the weather like around september? Im contemplating what clothes to bring. What places do you suggest to visit? Please help. Thank you. 🤗

  60. Grace Lum says:

    random side note" I love your ramen shirt

  61. chesterfyit says:

    Hi Rowena! Been loving your videos for months now. Thanks for all the life advice. It really inspires me.

    Just wanted to give some tips on furniture shopping, if you don't mind secondhand furniture. You can always look on Facebook Marketplace, Offerup and Craigslist for certain products and brands especially in New York. They come at a fraction of the cost, as people are trying to get rid of them. I look for brands like you (CB2, West Elm, DWR…). Some cons to it are that: you would need a car and a friend to help move certain items, some furniture pieces may have some scratches and dings and it would all be in timing. You can find quality items, but you would need to search constantly if you don't mind that. One time, I bought a small sofa on Craigslist from a guy in Chelsea for $100 that was originally $500 online. Just recently, I bought a 6' x 9' high quality jute rug on Facebook Marketplace from a family in Brooklyn for $50 retailing at $300. Both items were like new, as the owners bought them within the past year or so. I currently have my eye out on a West Elm Rabbit and Roar chair. You can save a lot of money, even if they're on sale at the brick and mortar stores. Other than that, keep up the great video work! 🙂

  62. Megan Yeo says:

    This kinda feels like doing furniture shopping for my sims especially with the music in the background

  63. Erika Zhan says:

    Did you really filming this ALONE (?)

  64. Emily Reals says:

    she attacc
    but most importantly, she be getting her vibe back
    ~~another great place (in Manhattan) is MUJI- they're kind of like a Japanese ikea, but cuter <3 love your videos, btw

  65. jasmine says:

    you’re so cute!! your videos never fail to motivate me 🙂

  66. vgirly10 says:

    Thank you so much for being real and not shying away from talking about the stye, I had them SUPER frequently for a year or two -_- and they were so annoying! It's cool to see someone just unabashedly show/talk about them. I moved into a new apartment recently too and am crying over how $$$ nicer furniture is. Wishing us the best of luck in our furni searches!!

    P.S. Also read that James Clear gem recently and it's a total game changer


  67. Susan Harkema says:

    do you have a sty? Hot moist cloths as hot as you can stand asap. Don't let that baby get hard. LOL

  68. Samira Schwannecke says:

    Never have I ever seen someone filming how she closes a bottle from 3 camera angles before 😂😂😂

  69. Aziellis says:

    Love your channel so much! It feels real and really relatable. I personally really like how you share your struggles (anxiety issues and etcetera) with all of us and how you try to deal with them. It does help some of us (me I mean lol)
    Loved to see much more videos per week! Oh and your makeup routine! Sending love from Portugal 🇵🇹♥️

  70. Mai Nguyen says:

    Every time I've had a sty, I normally get a q-tip and rub some coconut oil on it at night and it helps it heal quicker because coconut oil has some antibacterial properties. Recommend it for the next time you might get one.

  71. dklamara says:

    square all the way

  72. ocean_joy_500 says:

  82. The Modern Glitch says:

    So how do you get around when there's a blackout when you're relying on public transportation? I'm guessing you either Uber or have to stay put ??

  83. Sarah .A says:

    It is a really great Asian practice for such eye pimples to first clean your hands and then take the tip of your Index finger and rub it against the palm of your hand and when you feel like its warm enough touch the fingertip gently to the tip of the eye pimple. This is very effective and will disintegrate the pimple in matter of days and you wouldn't have to use any drugs.

  84. colachim says:

    i'm postive i've watched almost every single one of your videos over the past month and i'm now rewatching them, because at this point i can not go a single day without your voice and face! you've helped me grow and broaden my horizon so much, i really can't thank you enough!! <3
