Hello lovelies! How are you?
I have a reading week in uni which basically means I’m about to spend the week watching stranger things and sleeping. Juuust kidding, I’m going to spend the week watching stranger things, sleeping and doing important uni work…probably.
Yesterday, I decided to make a blog post all about how to make your room look cute on a budget! Now that it’s November it’s basically Christmas and there’s nothing nicer than coming home to a cosy room where you can snuggle up with a hot chocolate and watch *iconic* Christmas films like The Grinch.
So, after thinking long and hard about how to transform my bedroom without spending too much money it finally hit me: PRIMARK. They do the most amazing homeware for the cheapest prices so I couldn’t help picking up some pillows and a fluffy throw whilst I was out shopping with one of my best friends the other day:
I honestly can’t get over how SOFT they are. I love all things cosy and I’m obsessed with throws (I have around 5 currently in my bedroom) but I find that they can be so expensive so I was pleasantly surprised to find that Primark sell a range of absolutely gorgeous throws for insanely cheap prices (my one cost £6!)
The pillow I bought matches the throw and cost just £3! It’s such a lovely quality and again, it’s SO soft. I also love the neutral colour as it works with a range of colour schemes. I’m obsessed.
I bought the same pillow in pink a little while ago to add a bit of colour to my room (I’m a pillow hoarder, guys) and I can honestly say I’m so impressed with the quality of Primark’s homeware range.
Another favourite of mine that I think are the perfect detail to any space are candles! I adore candles. Seriously, they’re my favourite thing. They smell good, they’re atmospheric and they’re so relaxing. Honestly, what’s not to love?!
I bought a spiced apple candle recently from ASDA for £3 and it smells so good. During this time of year, my candles of choice most likely have the word ‘spiced’ somewhere in it’s description. Scrap that, they definitely do. If a candle smells like Starbucks at Christmas, I’m 1000% buying it.
I was in the holiday spirit on the weekend and decided to treat myself to a Christmas Yankee Candle and it smells divine.
This candle literally smells like a spiced gingerbread latte and it’s taking a lot of willpower not to start burning it before December 1st! It was a little bit more expensive than my other one (£8.99) but so worth it. ☃️
It sounds silly but I love the little details like placing my slippers on the floor by my bed or putting a few books on my desk. I have a wall hook where I keep my most used accessories and honestly, I just think it adds a cute touch to my room.
Let’s not forget the most important detail, fairy lights! They’re the perfect touch to make any room look cosy and I love them.
I have some on the frame of my bed! Admittedly, they’re not turned on because it’s the middle of the day (and I was too lazy to lean across and turn them on before taking a pic) but I’ve been a fan of fairy lights for years and firmly believe that no bedroom is complete without them. ✨
What do you use to make your bedrooms/spaces look cute and cosy? I’d love to hear them!
Also, I’m thinking about making a YouTube Channel in the very near future! If you would be up for watching my vids please let me know 🌟 I’m thinking about filming my first video soon ✨
Until next time,
