New Years' Resolutions

It's that time of year when everyone starts evaluating where they are in life, and what they need to change about them selves. The standard is lose weight, stop drinking or smoking, and exercise more, which is pretty generic really. So I thought I'd make a post about my personal goals for 2016, and they're little things that are really personal to my life specifically. So here goes.

1. Instagram OCD. 

Stop my instagram OCD. I've gotten so bad recently, like everything on my feed has to match up, and if it doesn't I'll delete it. If I don't post for a couple of days, I panic and frantically search for something to photograph. And for what? It's only bloody social media, after all. I also have an iPhone 4 as well, so I constantly feel like my photos aren't good enough, or need super's sad really.  So yeah, my goal is to not care so much, stop letting that app take over my life.

2. Write more.

I love writing, it's why I started blogging, but I feel like i just don't write enough in general. Like this blog for example, I should use it a lot more than I actually do! So I plan to make a lot more written posts, not just fluffed up with pictures. 

3. Eat more fruit and veg.

I'm terrible at this, especially at uni. Plus fruit and veg is so expensive???? Like when you've got a 60p bag of crisps in one hand, and a 80p apple in the other logic kicks in and goes for the crisps. However, I do not eat enough healthy stuff, the only thing I manage to eat is salad and berries. 

That's all I have so far. What are your resolutions?

My Nest

As much as I love fashion- and considering I'm studying it, it's a good job- lately I find myself taking a big interest in home furnishing, and arranging my bedroom in to the perfect nest. And it makes me slightly sad that in less that a months time i'll have to leave it to return to uni (although I'm excited to go back to Newcastle don't get me wrong!). So today I've decided to do a little post about my room, and how I like to live.

This glass box is a new edition to my room actually, my current fave place to buy home furnishings is T.K.Maxx! They have unique things, and a lot of things similar to Urban Outfitters home things, but for a fraction of the price! This glass box was only £10 which I thought was a bargain. I've also decided to use my books as an ornamental feature instead of just being shoved in the cupboard.

These "carnival" lights were a bargain from B&M Bargains (lol) at about £4, and they look so cute just strung up in my room! Just adding a little bit of rainbow glimmer to my room!

My shoe ladder made by my dad from old tree branches from the garden! I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, and since my shoe collection is ever growing I needed somewhere to put them all! 

My super rainbow clothes rain, also knows as my over flow since My wardrobe, draws and shelves are all full...and yet I continue to shop for clothes 24/7? 

Hope you enjoyed this post about my little room!
