Because I'm a nosy sort, some of my favourite blog posts are the kind where I get to have a peek into someone's life. What's in my bag posts are kind of my crack, and god, I love house tours. Love. Them.
Anyway, the last time I did a room tour post, it went down quite well! That was last year, back when I was still crashing at my parents' house, but now I am in my own little place and have been dying to share more than just little glimpses. I live in a house share with two other lovely ladies, and between us we've made our house into the cosiest, girliest home that ever there was.
I'll share some pics of the rest of the house at a later date, but for now I wanted to share my favourite place - my cosy little room. It was a challenge - it's very small, and I have a LOT of stuff.
I'd love to replace all the furniture with clean, white stuff - but the drawers were here when I moved in and fit perfectly within the space, and the wardrobe was sold to me for pennies by my sister, and it seems silly to spend the money when everything is perfectly fine (doesn't stop me wanting to though!).
I just bought a full length mirror - it hangs over my wardrobe door, and it is tacked on at the bottom with double sided tabs designed for outdoor use so it doesn't bang about. It's so good! Before this, I had stuck tiles on the wardrobe door and they looked scruffy - not to mention a couple got cracked because they are so flimsy. This was only £12.50 in the Cargo sale.
The lamp was a TK Maxx bargain a few years ago - I've never seen them since, but it's the kind of quirky classic that I think I'll have forever.
I got the little birdhouse in the Wilkinsons sale - far too nice for the garden, it holds all my Lush bits instead. And lots, and lots of sparkly shoes. You just can't lock sparkly shoes away, especially my sparkly Shelly court shoes that I just had to buy in both colours (the Dorothy ones are amazing but the silvery ones are multi-coloured glitter and are just amazing). You might spot my beloved birthday crown (and lots of other circusy souvenirs) and my dear little Madeline doll, as well as one of my favourite pictures of my best friends from Sha's birthday.
It's taken absolutely forever to put this post together! I'm so fond of my room and all the little details that I've accumulated. Have you ever done a room tour? I'd love to see! Remember? Nosy.
