I woke up this morning thinking holy crap, it’s May already. We’re 5 months into 2015, and I still remember partying in the new year like it was yesterday and I can’t believe how fast it’s gone…
Anyway it’s getting to that time where I’ve been so busy working and running around in between trying to see family and friends that I have completely neglected my room. I hate being in there because it’s sooo messy, looks so sad and I just haven’t had the time to tidy it or give it a good clean so I think it’s time for a little make over and hopefully make my room smile again.
So here are a few of the things that I use/do/have to make my room into the Perfect Princess Paradise again;
(yes I took that picture it is mine, IM FINALLY GETTING BETTER AT THIS! even if it is only a little better)
Light colours! I made the mistake a few years ago of painting one wall in my room in my dads house black. Although all the other walls were white it made my room look dark and dingy so now, since I mainly live with my mum because of work work I made sure I didn’t make that mistake again, now all my walls are an off white colour and it makes such a difference!
Flowers, flowers and maybe a few plants. Okay, so if you’re a busy girl maybe it’s not a good idea to get anything that takes a lot of looking after, you could even get fake flowers although you don’t get the lovely scents they will still brighten your room up and give a little burst of colour of your rooms like mine, pretty monochrome.
With it being summer a lot of supermarkets and shops like to do a little garden centre type sections with a range of house plants, the majority of them are pretty easy to look after, even if you have no idea about plants they usually come with ‘directions to look after’ sections on the packaging. My recent favourite is my mini-rose plant it’s absolutely beautiful and I never want it to die 😦 it’s like my second pet!
Fairy lights and lamps. I hate using the main light in my bedroom, I’d much rather light from a lamp or fairy lights (or both!) A lamp is perfect for your bedside cabinet, especially if you’re like me and want a light on to doodle or write before you go to sleep but you know for sure that once you’re ready to go to sleep you’re too lazy get out of bed to turn the light off so you can just reach over an knock the lamp off instead.
I love having fairy lights dotted around my room, it makes me feel like a princess.
Candles!!! Yankee candles, nice smelling candles, cute little tea lights in your favourite candle holder! I love love love candles, you can never have enough candles (okay maybe you can but you know what I mean). My all time favourite Yankee Candle is Cherry Vanilla but I’ve told myself once this one runs out I will step out of my comfort zone and try a new one!
You can buy bags of tea lights from pretty much any supermarket for a couple of pounds and they’re nice just dotted around your room (obviously in safe places) even if it don’t have candle holders for the time being.
Do you have any tips that help your room feel like the Perfect Princess Paradise?
