Snippets Of The Pale Female's Room

 

As with most people I'm sure, a bedroom is your own little haven. A sqaure shaped room ( in most cases), filled with all the bits and bobs that make you feel at home.
I moved out of my family home  when I was 18 and moved up to London on my own. I am a real hoarder and so over the past six years since moving to the big city, I have collected numerous things that make my little abode shape into a room of things I love.
I started off with two big bags and a guitar and have ended up with a chaise lounge, baskets of dried flowers and about a million tiny mirrors.

Things that make me the most happy in my room:
  1. Plants- they breathe life into the room and just look so darn beautiful.
  2. Fairy lights-I love turning them on in the evenings and watching my room glow pink.
  3. Clothes Rail- Seeing everything hanging up in the cosy corner always makes me feel privileged to have collected some really lovely pieces-at least in my eyes :)
  4. Bed- It goes without saying that everybody loves to chill out in clean sheets at the end of a long day.
I love having a little peak at other people's rooms, tour videos are one of my favoruties. So I thought I would try out a little version of my own. Of course there are things I would like to change about my bedroom, currently all of my books are sitting on shelves in the hall and my shoes are misarrayed around the kitchen, stairs and landing...so there is always room for change. I also need to get my desk and inspiration board into gear, but, all in all I love spending time in my own little space.

What do you love most about your bedroom?

P.S I apologise for the severe lack of hoovering in these pictures. Just don't look into the blue abyss of the carpet!

Lots of love always

Country Weekends

Hat~Vintage/ Skirt~H&M/ Socks~Primark/Top~Beyond Retro

Hey Darlings!

What a warm, sticky and sunny few weeks it has been, especially in London! Although this weather is divine, I felt it best spent in the country by the sea, rather than in the city. So, I went to visit my parents in Devon and what a lovely weekend it was. Trips to the ocean, eating fresh prawns and watching the sunset over the harbour. I really treasure my summer weekends in Devon and I wish I could go back there more often. I am definitely going to try my upmost to do so this summer, despite working like a maniac most of the time!

I didn't bring a lot of clothes with me, so my lovely sister lent me this beautiful sequin top from Beyond Retro. Although, I must say it looks a lot more dashing on her. I am currently living in this H&M suede skirt, it seems to pair just right with most of my outfits.

In other news my holiday to India is nearly booked, I am prepping a market stall for summer and I am planning on filming a room tour this week! Fingers crossed all of these things happen :)

Until next time....lots of love

OOTD: Denim & Pink


Jumper~Topshop/ Pinafore~ Mod Dolly/ Bag~ SunJellies/ Socks~Primark/ Shoes~JuJu

Hello my darlings!

Just a quick outfit post and cheeky update!
I have been away for a while doing this and that, but am finally back into being excited about blogging. Every since my birthday last month I have been trying to bring as much colour into my outfits as possible. As a sort of salute to the next 10 years of my life, where I feel I will still be wearing these little, girly outfits.
When I saw the previews for this Mod Dolly pinafore, I literally couldn't wait to get my hands on it. The heart pockets are my favourite part, pockets are the key to everything! Trust me.
I had been having a bit of a Britney music marathon this morning, hence the hairstyle inspiration.

As usual my jellies are out for June and what better way to enhance this years' jelly vibe, with a matching bag from SunJellies. Pink too, of course!

I can't wait until the weather is less humid and sticky, it's been driving me mad this week! This year really is just soaring by!

Hope you have all been enjoying the first few weeks of June :)

GRWM: Summer Edition Video



Hey my petals,

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend!

So..I made another video, something I was literally terrified to do. I did a short 'Get Ready With Me' (GRWM) video, for my typical look on a sunny day in summer. 
It's a big thing to sit in front of a camera and talk to it, I know it is cliche to say the least, but I really think it is. 

However, I decided to conquer my fear and just film and see what happens. Even if I'm not wearing a scrap of make up throughout the majority and showing how many moisturisers I need to coat on, to deal with my dry skin haha! 

Please let me know what you think and if you have any YouTube tips, then I would be so happy to hear them. 

Ooh and make sure you pop the quality up to HD! 

Lots of Love

Another Year Older

Dress~Beyond Retro/ Faux fur sash~Beyond Retro/ Earrings~Vintage 

So, on Monday I celebrated my birthday... my 24th birthday to be exact. Even writing this now I still can't believe that is my age. It seems only a day ago that I was turning 18 and moving to London on my own. Now it is a whole 6 years later! 

I spent the day wearing this glorious, floor-length dress from Beyond Retro, which I picked up on my trip to Brighton. Walking around I got a few odd looks, some good some bad, but I just thought it's my birthday and I will dress how I want :)

I spent the day with my nearest and dearest and kept it minimal with carrot cake and goblets of cherry vodka. Walking around Regent's Park in the warm weather was also a lovely end to the day.

My aim is to really embrace being 24, even if I feel like I am turning 56.... there are always exciting things happening just around the corner!
