My Room











I really don't like the phrase "room tour" I kind of just go like "bleuuughh" into a cringe attack when I see it like is it a museum ? Is it the person who uploaded it your tour guide ? I don't know and then you have to write the whole disclaimer "I'm not bragging" thing because apparently everything and anything is bragging {I hope you understand Internet sarcasm but wut even is bragging now ?}. I also filmed a "room tour" video which you can watch here - It's quite detailed in comparison to the photos above. 

I adore my room and there's so much more space now that my bed's at the back and I'm so glad I went with the turquoise paint in the end, There was one long sigh of relief when the walls didn't turn appear too dark. The whole 'theme' of my room is worked around the three canvases which are so beautiful and I just want to marry them because who needs boys when you have pretty canvases - The car and bike canvases are my favourite as they remind me of old cities. Beside my bed, There are several shelves and the bottom one is my favourite mainly because it's so cute and spring-like, It's pretty indescribable how much I love it and then I'm obsessed with the battery powered fairy lights too ! One are leaves which remind me of Halloween and the others are butterflies which fit in perfectly above the dressing table. 

I also own makeup storage now which makes getting ready in the mornings so much more convenient and the funny story about the brush holder is that it's actually meant for toothbrushes ! The bracelets which I wear every day and most of my rings {as in the ones that I haven't left in my handbag.} stay on these two tea plates which were only a euro together in a charity shop and my favourite necklaces plus a few bracelets are kept on a necklace hanger which is seriously handy. Another way I store jewellery is this hand pictured beside Tulip in her goldfish tank. This used to be my nanny's and although it is probably meant for rings, I usually use it for the odd bracelet or too. Speaking of Tulip, In the video I called SeaLife {where I got the aqua box things.} 'SeaWorld' {thanks Jane for correcting me !} and I'm just here facepalming and blaming Paper Towns. I blame fictional characters a lot lately. Above my bookshelf and perfumes, etc. I had a spare shelf therefore I lined up all my nail polishes there in order of colour code and I really hope somebody noticed so I'm not the only odd one here !

So I really hope you enjoyed this post which was very photo and ramble heavy !

Talk to you soon with an AwkwardSprinkles video coming your way at the weekend,
