It's been a while since I have made a blog post, it's not that I've been doing a lot it's more that I've been loving doing absolutely nothing so much that even making a blogpost is too much of an effort. I really need to get out of my little rut of only watching One Tree Hill, working and sleeping and do something a bit more productive and fulfilling with my time, perhaps I should simply read the Harry Potter Series again for the hundredth time.
However there is one thing I have managed to accomplish during my beautiful holiday time and that is re-doing my room. Before there was a violent aqua feature wall and oodles of stuff that I thought was cool at the time of purchase - not so cool anymore, so of course that all had to go - and what better time to start fresh straight after finishing high school! I leapt at the first opportunity to cover up that awful wall with some lovely white paint and from there everything snowballed into action. When I am determined to get something done there is absolutely no stopping me. To save some of my precious pennies I opted for some DIY's including the tassel garland and macrame hanging planter which I believe paid off because I think they both look incredibly cute! A trip to Ikea was also a necessity (another way of saving those precious pennies) where I picked myself up my new floating bookshelf, a nice pot for the planter, a faux sheepskin and a white throw for the end of my bed. Prior to re-doing my room I had been eyeing off a blue chair from Matt Blatt and of course I bought it because I couldn't resist. After a whirlwind two days of painting, decorating and crafting I had to wait for Christmas day until the room could be completely finished as the one and only Santa was bringing me that awesome Kip & Co bedspread - absolutely to die for!
Once Christmas day came I was finally feeling content and at peace with my room once again, however, I think it still needs a super wonderful Rachel Castle silver metallic cushion to finish it off - a birthday present perhaps! I won't lie to you, the main reason I took all these photos of my room is so I could submit them to Teen Lair - a super awesome tumblr where people all over the world submit images of their bedrooms (if you're a snoop like me I can guarantee you'll be scrolling for hours). So yes, here are few snaps from around my room.
