Hey friends! I feel like its about time that I created a little spare time in my life to at least try and get 2 blog posts in a week. ...
I feel like its about time that I created a little spare time in my life to at least try and get 2 blog posts in a week.
I have definitely slacked and left my blog in the dark just rotting away (poor blog- I'm sorry)
And what better time to make an entrance again- at Christmas time!
ALOT has changed in my life since the last time I posted on here, so you guys will definitely be seeing some changes in my types of posts & the content within.
I don't want my blog to simply be about clothes- I will still have posts about what I wear etc, but I feel many people would rather read information & keeping you all up to speed on current events in my little boring life.
This post is simply going to include looooooads of pictures of how I decorated my bedroom for the run up to Christmas.. I was a little eager- not as eager as some, but it had to be done this weekend otherwise it would have been put off until next weekend & that seems too late to me.
Forgive me if you feel it is too early but maybe some of you would like your own decorations like what I have done.
Christmas decoration inspo?
That kind of thing?
I purchased most of these decorations from Wilkinson's, and my mum done a huge haul for me while I was at work around various poundshops. So I really haven't spent a fortune on these in the slightest.
The most expensive item was my lights (30 metres for £9.95) I purchased these in 'Day Pure White' this gives them the blue glow instead of the usual warm yellow glow that white Christmas lights have.
As you can see, they are pretty bright. I also have various other lights for example, around my mirror- these are battery operated LED's from eBay also.
And finally, I have some small snowflake LED's around my headboard mixed in with some tinsel. These were from Wilko.
This little bird jewel lamp was from Wilko last year - and it is still in stock woo!
TIME FOR THE TREE!
I purchased this little white tree from ASDA for £5. You'll be able to pop into a store and grab one. I had to have white seeing as my entire bedroom is white/grey/silver now. I don't usually like white trees but as my bedroom is all white, it really adds to the cold winter theme.
The little polar bear shown above was from wilko also.
Pretty much all of the baubles were purchased from various pound stores- so you'll have to have a little hunt around if any catch your eyes!
Also some are from ASDA- http://www.wilko.com/wilko-frozen-christmas-decorations/wilko-frozen-polar-bear-dec-asst/invt/0419613
The little hears & bells have been in our decoration collection for quite a few years now so I'm unsure as to where they were from. But here are some lovely alternatives to fit with the scheme of the tree!
The silver beads are also from Wilko
The tree topper was from the poundshop but an alternative can be found in Wilko
This lovely little house candle holder is another cute bargain from Wilko,
It creates some lovely patterns on surrounding areas with the candle glowing through!
The love of my life.
The curtain that you can see pictured above was a recent change in my bedroom, along with my wardrobe & curtains. There was a door on this cupboard- but due to my wardrobe being huge, I had to remove the door & I decided to hang a white voile & a bead curtain together to save space. And especially for Christmas- I added lights between the two curtains to make it extra pimpin' & sparkly.

The stick on snowflakes- were from wilko. They look lovely BUT they did take quite some time between me & my mum trying to peel them off of the backing. Worth it, but pretty frustrating at times!
I just need to add- how beautiful this Jimmy Choo perfume is. SO NICE. so so nice. You need it.
Snowflake chain Link:
I had all of my Polaroids printed using the app: LALALAB. It is free to download form the appstore.
They are an amazing company to use & I have never had any faults whatsoever from them.
If you use my code: PGSV9HMD at the checkout, you'll receive £5 worth of free prints! So at 29p per polaroid print- you really can't complain!
My paper lanterns were from eBay last year- a simple search of white paper lanterns will throw out loads of stores to purchase them from!----------
I threw a few left over baubles around the room for some finishing touches.
I hope that even one person had a little bit of interest in reading about my Christmas decorations (I LOVE Christmas and I'm sure loads of you do too).
So happy decorating guys.
