Bedroom Decor Plans + Inspiration

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

My bedroom has been my greatest creative inspiration and space for the last few years. It went from being a pastel purple teenage disaster littered with emo band posters to my rose gold glowing sanctuary.

My bedroom doubles as my office right now, which means that I spend a lot of time in there. So, anywhere that I am spending a lot of time I want to be nice, inspirational and visually appealing.

My color scheme is very millennial approved. Everything works around my touches of copper, pink and white.

While I do love my space right now, I am always thinking and looking for ways to improve it even more. I have done a post on my room in the past (which you can check out here), and not too much has changed, but this post is more about where I hope to go with my future decorating.

I have worked on adding some more greenery to my space (definitely want much, much more soon). I tried having succulents in the past, but unfortunately didn’t care for them properly (or maybe overwatered) and they died. I now am the proud plant mother to 5 air plants and a trusty *bamboo* (I’ve heard the IKEA bamboo sticks aren’t really bamboo). I would love to try a bigger potted plant next.

I love this terrarium that was gifted to me during Christmas.

I got very obsessed with making yarn wall hangings once I followed a DIY and kind of ran with it and made it my own a few years ago now. I have since made several for gifts and I think they are just adorable in any space. I have been huge on texture lately and these provide just that. They do get quite dusty though! So be sure to give them a good shake outside now and then.

One of my favorite new decor editions this year has been my rug that I found at a vintage shop locally. Just everything about it: the color, the texture, the handmade quality and the shaggy little ends. Obsessed. I’m not usually huge on carpet-on-carpet looks, but since this is the space I’m currently confined to I really wanted to still incorporate it.

And of course my trusty IKEA lamps have kept my room loyal to the rose-coppery look. These were such a great addition to my room. I have one on either side of the room and when they’re lit up with the Edison bulbs they illuminate a beautiful golden, copper glow that reflects beautifully off the pink accent wall.

Now for my inspiration for future room decoration plans:

First thing I’d love to change is my bed frame because it’s old, bulky and just doesn’t match. I found this one on West Elm and I am so in love with the simplistic, wire frame:

My bedroom currently doesn’t have a mirror which is something that I desperately need to change. This one from Anthropologie, although expensive, has given me some serious inspiration:

And just how cute is this little pink stool from Wayfair? I would love for this to be in reading corner.

Much more inspiration to come. I am always looking for things to renovate and improve my space! What are your favorite places to shop for unique and cute pieces? Let me know in the comments.

As always,

Thank you so much for reading!

I Got My Haircut

Hello lovely followers! I hope you’re all having a great week so far. I’ve been very busy recently with some non-blog related personal stuff.. but I’m constantly thinking and working on my upcoming posts (there will be loads on things coming).

A few days ago, I got super fed up with my shoulder length, uneven layered pixie grow out style. I have never really liked having hair longer than my collar bone. I’ve always felt it was unflattering with my face and I just always want to chop it off (hence why I cut my hair off 3 times into a pixie cut).

This time, I wanted to cut it into a sort of Mod-inspired 1960’s style. I went for a blunt (just above) chin length bob. It evened out all of my layers, which will make it easier to grow out without wanting to run for scissors.

I absolutely love how it turned out. It’s so easy to style and makes me feel way cuter on the DAILY.

I’ll post more pictures below:

VMA’S 2015 – SHOW RECAP

The time has come once again for MTV’s most prized possession: The Video Music Awards. Hosted by the wild Miley Cyrus, the night was a whirlwind of barely-there outfit changes and countless F-bombs. But, how can you not admire her confidence? She is who she is!

Nicki Minaj opened the show in an interesting red tribal outfit and during ‘The Night Is Still Young’, she was joined on stage by Taylor Swift (everyone oo’d and ahh’d as this happened, since their Twitter feud was just a few weeks ago). They acted like best friends for the moment (but I feel like it’s not that way once they get off stage).

Miley opened the show with a wild flared-leg, sequined jumpsuit with flowers in her hair. She basically jumps out of a Lisa Frank coloring book (in terms of her looks) at all points during the show. She warned about MTV letting her host, saying they may never have anyone host again. Her outfits got crazier and crazier as the night went on; I loved them all.

The Weeknd performed his hit Can’t Feel My Face. The crowd seemed to love it, with T-Swift mouthing “that was amazing”. He danced inside of FIRE, guys (quite the symbol for how his career is taking off at the moment). I bet Drake is sitting back in a chair somewhere smiling.

Best Female Music Video took us all by storm. It was intense with Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift nominated. All these ladies deserve to win, honestly, but Taylor took it proudly. I know that Beyoncè fans everywhere were falling to the ground in agony while burning Swift’s albums, but that’s just how it goes.

Demi perfomed ‘Cool For The Summer’ and fully KILLED IT, but then Iggy Azalea joined her on stage.. and honestly, I was upset. She really gave it her all, though.

Justin Bieber came out and owned the stage while performing ‘Where Are U Now’. He sang it perfectly and even through in a few riffs while owning every single dance move. I was impressed.

Tori Kelly brought a thing seldom seen at the VMA’s these days: A GUITAR. She did a PHENOMENAL job performing ‘Should’ve Been Us’ and looked LOVELY. Girl, I think you just made a name for yourself (more than before).

Kanye West won the Video Vanguard Award. Taylor Swift presented his award, sharing that his album College Dropout was the first one she bought on iTunes. She even pulled the ‘IMMA LET YOU FINISH’ card, and called him her FRIEND? I guess all is forgiven in the land of Swift and West.

But, then Kanye came on stage and everything broke loose. He apologized to Taylor Swift for his past actions, through a very dramatic monologue.

“You know how many times MTV replayed that again, cause that got them MORE RATINGS?” Kanye slammed MTV during his ‘apology’ (still talking about the incident with Taylor Swift). He also kept repeating “listen to the kids”, which I’m still confused about.

“I just wanted people to like me more,” said West about his actions.

HONESTLY HIS WHOLE SPEECH WAS A WHIRLWIND. You should probably go watch this on youtube.. AND HE’S RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020 I GUESS.

Can we expect any less from Mr. West?

Miley came on stage after saying “well we now know what happens to Kanye West after he smokes weed,” and then “TRUMP YOU HAD MY VOTE, BUT NOW KANYE WEST FOR PRESIDENT.”

After things calmed down, Twenty One Pilots and A$AP Rocky took the stage to perform. What I thought would be a kind of confusing performance turned out to be..um…okay? It was fine. Nothing special.

The Video of the Year award (and final award of the night) went to miss TAYLOR SWIFT for BAD BLOOD, again beating out Beyoncè. I think we all knew it was coming though, it was a big video.

Swift ended her speech with an inspirational quote, “I’m just glad in 2015 we live in a land where boys can play princesses and girls can play soldiers.”

Introduced by some members of the trans community, including Gigi Gorgeous, Miley closed the show with a performance (full of glam drag queens) of a new song?! Her vocals were lovely and the song was all about LOVE. The Happy Hippie gave us something to remember with confetti blowing out of her crotch.

AND SHE DROPPED A NEW ALBUM FOR FREE:

Congrats to all the winners of the night.

Overall, the night was pretty entertaining compared to some previous VMA’s.

What was your favorite VMA Moment of the night?
