Today, I thought I'd give you a little insight into my blogging environment. I got side tracked in Primark and picked up some gorgeous little room decorations, so decided to combine a post showing you my new purchases whilst also giving you a sneak peak behind the scenes into the world of Amy Elizabeth...
One of the first blog posts I ever published featured my room in Manchester, including the kitsch ornaments and decorations that I littered around to make it feel homely and personal. I always planned to team that post with another decor post about my bedroom at home, but never really seemed to get round to it. My room at home is completely different to my studio flat in Manchester, it is a place I go to to study, read and relax. I have no television in there and personally I think it's incredibly important to have a space in your house where you can go to disconnect and really let you brain switch off.
Candles are a great way to relax, as the yellow light of fire is scientifically proven to relax the mind and aid sleep, as opposed to the white light that is emitted from laptops and televisions. Therefore, you will often find me curled up on my bed with my amazing £1.50 (absolute bargain!!) Primark candles lit, along with my £3.00 fairy lights. I love piling up all my cushions (note the newest addition of the white heart shaped cushion, another Primark steal at £3.00) and getting stuck into one of my favourite books or reading the latest issue of Cosmo of Vogue.
I am a huge fan of feature walls and colour schemes. I think it's best to start with a base of white or cream and build upon that with accessories and nick-nacks in your chosen colours. For me, those colours are pink with a hint of gold, and that is even translated into my stationary choice of matching Ted Baker pencil case and pall point pen.
Leave your comments below and let me know if you've bought any bargain bedroom items recently, and I'd also really appreciate it if you would follow THIS LINK and vote for "Amyelizabethfashion" in the Best New Beauty Blog category for Cosmo's Blog Awards!
