safe haven // my bedroom

Friday, January 03, 2014
Well, hello! And Happy New Year! I'm as late as the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland because the last week has been a flurry of family events, trips, shopping and the general holiday busyness that make days untrackable... (I thought today was Sunday). Anyway, I've been having lovely holidays and although I do miss school and my friends very much, I could get used to the sleep-ins and lazing about endlessly. Yesterday I got back from a fun little 'one- night' trip to Brisbane (as you might have seen on my instagram) with my cousin and aunt. We saw Roger Federer play for the Brisbane International tennis tournament, stayed on the 70th floor of the Meriton and shopped till we dropped. It was fabulous! 

As for the room tour, it's been almost a year since my first room tour video, so I thought I would give you all a little peek into my bedroom since it has changed quite a bit since you last saw it! This year I was lucky enough to receive the bed frame I had been coveting for Christmas and I think it's perfect - especially with the fairy lights!

Bed // Overview
I think my Mum bought the bed from a local furniture store, but since it's a Christmas present, I'm not too sure. My bedside table was originally Izzy's but I gave it an epic makeover about two years ago and it's served me well ever since! My bedding is a little mismatched as I decided to save the money I was originally going to spend on a bedspread, and stick with my old favourite duvet over. I like the way it's turned out though; very pink and very me! The latest issue of Frankie was wonderful too, there's nothing better than a huge year planner for your wall. Oh, and ps: that Macbook isn't mine *sob*, it's my sister's and I pinched it because it's fun. 

Flower crowns // Perfume 
I recently ran out of my signature scent; Miss Dior Cherie so I replaced it with a more affordable fragrance from the Body Shop in Japanese Cherry Blossom. It's very fresh and summery and perfect for every day. My lovely flower crowns weren't made by me (unfortunately I'm not too skilled in the flower craft department), but I love displaying them in parts of my room to brighten things up. 

2014 Vintage Disney Calendar 
I found this gorgeous Disney calendar on sale at Typo in Brisbane and snapped it up instantly! I'm a huge fan of Disney and the nostalgia that one is overcome with whenever a movie plays. Speaking of Disney movies, have any of you seen Frozen yet? Oh gosh, I loved it. I was laughing so hard in it, I loved Anna's character too, she was just so brilliant. And I thought Olaf was completely adorable and funny. If you haven't seen it yet, I definitely recommend it!

Wardrobe // Makeup Area
This is probably the most frequently evolving area of my bedroom! That portable clothing rack has served me well over the last year (despite it's fickle stability) and it looks lovely and simple. My makeup and summer clothing shelves are also quite useful. I think I'm going to have to do something about that storage though... my makeup corner is an absolute mess! Oh, and stay tuned for a new post featuring some Lush goodies very soon (I went a little crazy in the Brisbane stores hehe). 

Anyway, I hope you all had a fantastic NYE and I'll talk to you soon! xo

Ah Maria! Your room looks even more stunning now!
I am also crying because I am not an owner of a Macbook.. but some day yeah? HAHAHHA *sighs*

AND YES. OH MY GOSH FROZEN. *fangirl squeals* IT WAS SO GOOD and I loved the dress Elsa "transformed" into that as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make it for my textiles costume major this year! But yes what an overall fabulous film and I feel like I am spiritually connected to Kristoff because he's fabulous.

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Years and by the sounds of it, you did!

Best wishes xx


(wow i'm sorry this was long!)

Your room is gorgeous hun. Inspiring me to get a wriggle on and sort mine. To keep it clean is effort enough right now :)

Happy 14th January!
