A lot of you will be starting University in a few weeks so I thought I would put together the things that I think are necessary for your room. You can find out more here.
Hi guys, I am BACK! I know, it has been a long time, I have been completely MIA…I haven’t posted once in 2015! I have missed it so much! I thought I should pop by and let you know that I’m still here and I haven’t forgotten about you! What have you been up to since I’ve been gone?
Uni has got very intense, who said a Law degree would be easy hey?Of course that has to be my priority at the moment but it will all be over for my second year soon (thank god) and then I will back and you will be sick of hearing from me haha!
I thought I’d share this outfit with you as I’ve found some bargains this week! These jeans are from Primark and are £10, yes £10 and they’re amazing! Seriously, I used to only wear Joni Jeans from Topshop which cost about £40 and they were as good as useless after about 4 months, the knees went all baggy and they were completely unwearable. I haven’t been able to find a jean that fits that well but now I have! Everyone needs a pair of these jeans in their life, they fit so well, are so comfy and for £10 who wouldn’t want them?
I also picked up these shoes at the weekend too and I am in love! They are so different and I think for flat shoes they make an outfit look really dressy! I especially love the chunky gold heel, that definitely adds a bit of glamour to an outfit. I had seen some just like this on the Office website but I found these in New Look for half the price and I think they’re even nicer! I also think they’ll go with everything, so they’re definitely a ‘necessary’ purchase! What do you think?
I think the hat and the gold detailing on the shoes and bag really pull this otherwise very simple outfit together! This is the sort of outfit I love to wear, very simple yet elegant and understated and people would assume you’ve made a lot of effort, when really you haven’t (shhh don’t tell anyone)

[WHERE TO FIND ME]
A year has passed since I first moved here and I couldn’t love my room more! When you move away from home for the first time it’s always a daunting experience and it really helps to make your bedroom really homely, this is definitely true when you flat share. Your room is the place where you can escape from everything and just shut yourself away and relax. So if your room looks pretty, it makes it even better! I thought I’d share some pictures of my room with you all.
I got all my bedding from Primark recently and it’s such good value for money – the quality is really nice and that fur throw is to die for, honestly the softest and snuggliest thing I have ever owned. I can never wait to just snuggle up in bed under it.
This is our little work station. I love our peace lilly – we had one last year but it died when we went away for the summer so we brought a new one! It adds some colour to the room and makes it more homely.
As you can see our beloved Yankee Candle has nearly run out, this is a sad moment for us as we have had it the whole time we have been living here. The scent is ‘Bahama Breeze’ and it is absolutely beautiful, honestly the nicest smell ever! We are definitely going to have to buy another and they’re such good value because they last for so long.
We’ve also got a massive map of London on the wall, it was my dad’s idea and I think it’s so cool! We always look at it and decide which new places we want to go and explore. It also puts some colour in the room which is always good when your walls are painted white.
We keep our clothes on a rail at the end of our bed – at first I hated the idea of having my clothes out and being able to see them all the time but it has actually come in really handy! It’s so easy to pick an outfit and they also add colour to the room, I’ve got them all colour co-ordinated so they look pretty too.
These mugs are on our bedside table, we do drink out of them but we also like to use them as ornaments! My boyfriends name is ‘AJ’ so I think it’s a nice touch. He got them as a Christmas present last year and I think they’re so cute. I wish my name was only two letters long so I could have a matching set too.
This is our flatmate, Dolly! She is honestly the cutest little thing and we love her!
