As my money comes in at the start of every month, I find that towards the end the funds are dwindling, and I end up with an endless list of things I want to buy as soon as the calender turns it’s pages.
As I’m moving out of my first year student accommodation in just a matter of weeks, I’m looking ahead to September where we move into a proper house (!!), and I’ll have my own bedroom (without blue painted brick walls!) and study to play around with, I’ve been looking at various home accessories to make it a little more ‘me’.
Of course, as it’s a rented house we can’t do anything with the furniture, or anything long-term with the walls, so it’s all about accessories and paying attention to detail.
In the kitchen:
Bit of a boring one first – electric scales! The ones I use at the minute are some mechanical ones my flatmate bought to uni, and I use them daily! But have to get some of my own now we’re living separately next year..
I have my eye on these ones by Salter, on sale for £6 in Asda!
Whilst at uni the majority of my crockery and glasses have gone walkies, so I probably won’t invest again in anything nice for next year as I’m sure they’ll meet their fate in a similar way.
But as soon as I’m in a house of my own- Notonthehighstreet.com – £6.95 each
In the study:
I’m lucky enough to have my own study next year!
I pulled the short straw with getting the smallest bedroom, so I was given the study.
I intend on clean worksurfaces, clear walls (other than a large black and white photograph I already have from this year) and lots of plants and candles!
In the bedroom:
As I said before, my bedroom is going to be pretty small so I’m going to have to be careful how I decorate it!
I’m therefore going for plain white bedsheets, and accessorising with bright scatter cushions, candles etc.
I have my eye on this absolute beauty from notonthehighstreet.com, but at £29 a pop I think it’s a bit excessive just for a uni room!
I’m therefore on the hunt for similar or even similar fabric so I can make my own (let me know if you find anything!)
I intend on making the other ones for my bedroom as well over summer (keep your eyes peeled for a DIY post)
And ever since Ikea released this mirror I’ve been lusting over it, maybe this year’s the year?!
In the wardrobe:
And I won’t even get into all the beauty products I’m lusting over!
What have you got your eyes on this month?
