UNI ROOM TOUR


Hello, it's me.. Jen, if you've forgotten. Queue the 'I'm such a terrible blogger' jokes and apologies as I've been really quiet on the blogosphere lately. I want to start by saying a huge thank you to all of you who entered my giveaway, the response was lovely and I'm so thankful you took the time to enter and massive congrats to Sonia for winning!

It's proving to be pretty damn difficult finding the time to blog now I'm back at university (I still manage to find time to bingewatch Netflix though, shame on me). But I'm working on it, blogging is one of the only things I truly love doing so I refuse to slack any longer. Especially since we're now moving into my favourite month of the year - who else am I going to share my halloween and pumpkin spice latte adventures with?!

Anyway, since I'm still trying to decorate and make my uni room a little more homely I thought I'd show you my progress so far. There's still a long way to go, I'm a perfectionist so I'll probably never be 100% happy with it (don't mention those awful cream walls). But so far, it's coming along nicely. There's parts of my room I don't want to share just yet, but once I find the decor to suit my girly needs it'll be complete. I'll try to add some of the links to a few things I've picked up recently because I love reading those kinda posts and finding some affordable uni decor too, so here goes. Enjoy!


Bedding: Primark
Flora Poster: Urban Outfitters


10 points if you spot me. I love this little storage box I got from Ikea, it's the "Kallax" series and it was literally £20, how good is that? I love that you can accessorise with the boxes to fit the spaces too. I don't have the same colour scheme in my bedroom at home so when it comes to moving back I'll be able to pick up some different coloured boxes to pop in whilst I'm at home. I think this is my favourite part of the room so far, it's a little bit cluttered but that's just me, I'm a little cluttered human. Shoutout to Ken the catcus for hanging on in there too, he's grown so much since last year, I'm a very proud cacti mother.



This is also another Ikea purchase *shock* as when I moved in the furniture provided was.. 'sparse' to say the least. I'm a kinda gal to have a cup of tea and a lamp right beside me so I can read in bed to my hearts content, so I obviously needed to buy a bedside table. This is the 'Selje' and again, it's £20. I love the way it looks and it's just the right size. I also picked up the little glasses holder from Tiger for around £4, how adorable is it?! I also just noticed my beauty blender is dirty and I think I must be the worst beauty blogger on the entire planet. Oh, and there's another catcus.




The rug above was from Ikea, christ I hate that word now, I promise I'm not sponsored. I have a little bit of floor space and I think this just breaks the whole bare feel of it up a little and it's super soft and comfy, especially for ten pounds too. The little cards I've got up next to my door are some of my favourite images from Tumblr I put together and printed. Some of them are funky patterns and some have lyrics from my favourite songs, I think they were around 40p to print from allposters.co.uk and I'd definitely recommend doing it, it's such a cheap yet pretty way of sprucing up yo walls.



And heres me, looking way too happy sporting my new dorky glasses and my brown-gone-ginger ombrè/ish hair. I'm really trying to make the most out of my second year and I feel so much happier already, I'm bettering myself, organising my work in good time and I've even pushed myself to ask questions and not be afraid to speak up. For blogging, I promise you'll see a lot more of my face in the very-near future, I've even scheduled a few posts in advance. Me? scheduling?! I know. Thanks for reading and I hope you're having a lovely sunday. Xx
