Bedroom Tour!

Hey! Sorry I haven't blogged for a while, I've been trying to sleep lots and recover from this horrible cold/chest infection/fainting thing I've had (if you follow me on twitter, I'm sure you'll be bored of my moaning!)

I saw a feature on YouTube where this girl did a bedroom tour (sorry I can't remember who's channel) but I thought it was really interesting in a Big Brother type way. I don't have a video camera or YouTube channel so I'm going to do this with photos - I hope it works!

I know the photos are too big for my blog layout, but I think they look better big so please forgive my inept-ness at using computers and being a technophobe!

My room is in the attic of my parent's house at the moment. I really love it! So here's the view when you walk in the door:


As you can see, my room is pale blue with cream furniture (I spent a whole summer one year painting my horrible old pine furniture and turning it into this!)

Can't resist a close-up of my ted!


His name is Dr. Monkey and I got him from my parents when I had my spine operation 6 years ago. I love him! 

If you look to the left...



and here's a close up of my desk


I have little Muji stackable drawers for storing my makeup, my Liz Earle products (I still love them) and my favourite perfumes - Marc Jacobs Daisy and Chanel Coco Mademoiselle.

This is my view out the velux window - I can see the Spinnaker Tower!


Facing the other direction, this is what the other half of my room looks like:


Not as pretty! Yes I am 22 and still have some childhood teddies. I can't get rid of them though! I also have my amazing snuggly dressing gown I got from TK Maxx a couple of months ago which I love. The pictures on the shelf are all by family and friends:


The one on the left is of cyclamen by my nan, the one in the middle was by my old housemate Rachel - it's so good! And the one on the right is of Weymouth highstreet, also by my nan.

So that's the end of the tour. Hope it wasn't too boring!

  2. awww love this post! :D your room is super tidy and pretty! If i ever did a room tour it would have to undergo a major cleanup session to look at all presentable :P

    We were thinking of converting the attic into a room but uh, having said that, no monies as of yet :p bro argued it would be irritating to keep opening/closing the attic trap door LOL ^.^''

    Heheee, dr monkey <3 xxx

  5. I absolutely love this! It totally appeals to my nosey side. I love the way your make up and products are all neatly arranged on your dressing table. All of mine are stuffed in a huge drawer, which has become like a blackhole -what products get chucked in don't usually find their way back out! :S lol x x
