I've spent the past week moving back to my parents, from University. Thus, I've also spent the week rearranging furniture in my bedroom, buying all sorts of little trinkets, and goodies to fill shelves and window ledges. My room now feels very much my own again. It's filled with pink trinkets, lots of different textured black cushions, cupcake trinket boxes, and my magazine and book collection, very much on display.
I love cushions. In fact, I ADORE cushions. I have so many of them. I have at least 4 to match each set of bedding I own, and I own about 6 sets of bedding. I think they add so much personality to a room. I love these cushions from House of Fraser. The texture is amazing. I love the 3D effect of the roses.
I've been reading Vogue for about six or seven years now, and I've kept about 75% of Vogues I have bought. I have a nice collection of Wonderland, iD and Another Magazine too. I darn't count how many I have, because I will just make myself sick with the amount I have spent on magazines. I also collection fashion and art books, and I've got some beautiful books on vintage fashion. I also have a nice collection of classic novels, and trashy chiclit too.
I absolutely LOVE the cupcake trinket boxes. I found some in a local cheap store for £1.49. They have 4 different styles, two cupcakes and two sundaes. I bought a cupcake and a sundae and they're on my window ledge filled with all my earrings and necklaces and such. They're just absolutely adorable!
I'm a sucker for hoarding things, and I can't wait to get down to the local market next weekend, to see what unusual goodies I can pick up.
The sun has also been inspiring me a lot, and I'd like to make it known, that I have managed to get sunburnt in April….in the UK.
