Room Decor & Tour

Hey Guys!

It’s been requested a few times that I do a room tour post and because I love seeing room tour posts on other blogs myself, I thought it would be fun to do one of my room. As I said in a previous post I did recently re-do my room, it used to be pink on three walls and grey on the fourth wall. I was just getting sick of the colour and wanted something new and fresh, so I decided to go all grey with white accents. My room isn’t 100% finished, I’m still missing something over my bed (…head board? painting? I’m still deciding!) and I still need to mount my bedside shelf beside my bed and my large silver mirror but oh well! I feel like my room will never be 100% perfect, there will always be thing that I want to add or change so if I wait for perfection this post would never get published haha! I hope you guys like the room, I really had to lighten the pictures because the lighting in my room is horrible for pictures.

I am also going to do a ‘room organization’ post as well, I wanted to add it all into this post but it was just wayyy too much content, so I’m going to break it up into two different posts. Be sure to look out for that one in the coming weeks!

This is my new work space area, where I work on my blog but also do my hair and makeup!

Having extra makeup sponges and Q-tips on hand is key, but I also think they make cute decor as well!

This tall chest-of-drawers houses all my beauty products, its the perfect piece of furniture for keeping me organized, and for keeping my room uncluttered!

The glass hurricane jar on top of the tall drawers is the one from my may favorites! I have another one on my shelf above the desk too, right beside the big white ‘M’. I love the look of them with a candle in it!

I have a love for boutiques and my dream is to own my own one day, so I like to decorate my room in a boutique-like style with the racks of clothes and purses and accessories displayed on shelves. That’s where I get a lot of my room decor inspiration from.

**Storage hack! -The great thing about displaying your purses out in your room as decor is that they can double as storage! This Rebecca Minkoff bag holds all my bathing suits and cover-ups.

I’m a sucker for pillows and throw blankets if you couldn’t tell <3

This rack is home to all my newer clothing items that are going to be published in outfit posts on my blog! So this is a little sneak peak of whats to come!

I have so many scarves that I needed to find a creative way to turn them into room decor, so I took all my gray, pink, white, black and beige scarves that go with my room colour scheme and rolled them up and put them in a basket. But then still had more that I needed to find a home for so I stacked a pile of them beside the basket too!

This shelving unit holds all my shoes, I have them all sorted in these pink boxes. You’ll see more in the organization post i’m going to do!

**Candle hack! – because I burn my candles so much which gets expensive I try to cut corners as much as possible. I like to add tea lights to the candles on my white candle holders, since they’re up so high on my shelving unit you cant actually see the tops on the candles. So when I burn the tea lights I have the illusion of the large candles burning without the unattractive look of half burnt candles & no need to ever buy new large candles! I just replace the tea lights every time they burn out instead! (I really hope my explanation of this makes sense!)

These are my everyday jewelry staples that I keep out on hand for when I’m getting ready and running out the door!

I have quite a lot of jewelry so I had to find creative ways to store some of the larger pieces that take up too much space in my jewelry cabinet, I thought placing them over ceramic vases looked really glam!

Hey friends!

I thought I’d start off the week with a little bedroom inspiration! Personally I find that I am so much more productive in a clean, organized environment, and since I don’t yet have my own house to have an office in, I have to make sure my room does double duty as a work space! I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I’ve been in the process of painting and redecorating my bedroom, and that’s so I have a more functional and organized desk space, and an area to work in. I had a work space before but it was kind of dark and cluttered, I needed something a little more ‘me‘. I’m planning to do a room tour on my blog when it’s completely finished, but it’s not quite there yet (#PerfectionistProblems hahah).

Anyways- I’m linking all my favorites in girly chic decor under the photo, most of which I bought for my room.. Oops! You may have noticed I linked a couple textured throw blankets, I love these because they make such a difference on your bed, the texture in the throw gives some interest to your boring old comforter. But if you wanna take it to the next level –  try layering multiple throws on your bed(all of different textures), with lots of pillows. I find it gives off a really cozy and luxurious feel, which is a must for a glam bedroom! Lately I’ve had a slight obsession for candles that are so pretty they double as decor pieces, and let me just say; those opal jar candles I linked are everything! These babies are definitely on my shopping list for the next time I go to Indigo.

I hope this post gives you a little inspiration to make your room/house/office into a space that really speaks to you!

Thanks so much for reading <3

Blog & Life Updates

Hey Guys!

Just an update on my posting schedule – I`m now going to be publishing my posts on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week. This way my posts are evenly spaced out throughout the week!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed a different backdrop in my pictures, that’s because I am re-doing my room to make it more functional. I never had a proper desk area to work at and blogging from my kitchen table just wasn’t cutting it anymore.  So I used that as an excuse for an entire room over-haul 😉 . I bought my furniture and décor last week, and this week I`m painting! Fingers crossed that everything is finished by next weekend, I have major organization OCD when it comes to my space (& so does muffin, she’s been acting weird since my room has been turned upside-down) so I need to get things back in order stat! I`m hoping to do a room tour post shortly after everything is finished, so look out for that in the coming weeks!

Okay that’s it for now, sorry for the boring Monday morning post! I just felt like I should fill you guys in on what`s happening and what`s to come!

Have an awesome day and thanks for reading! 🙂

 

DIY Golden Detail Vases

image

With Valentines day right around the corner, I thought I would DIY these pretty vases I saw on Pinterest a couple weeks ago.  I’m thinking we can use them to hold the flowers we may or may not be getting from our valentines ;). These vases are super easy and fun to make and cost less then $15 for all three!

What You Need:

  • Various glass vases or jars
  • Gold spray paint
  • Blue painters tape

How-To:

  • Start by quickly washing your various sized glass vases
  • Tape off the top rim of the vase  (as pictured below)

  • Use your painters tape and tape off whatever pattern you want

  • Spray paint a thin layer of gold over your vase, wait an hour and then spray another thin layer of paint. You will want to layer the paint on thinly so the paint doesn’t start to drip, and make sure the paint is completely dry before you spray another layer. (continue this step until the paint is at your desired coverage)
  • Once your paint is dry, carefully peel off the tape
  • Then fill with flowers 🙂

 

It’s that easy!
