I Love Shiny!

The shiny lover in me is all over this awesome mirror ‘Smile, I Love You’ necklace from I Love Crafty‘s Modern Romance collection – Isn’t it fun?! The lovely Laura who makes all the crafty pieces is so accommodating that when I cheekily asked whether the necklace could come on a chunkier and longer chain, she quickly and happily rustled me one up! That’s the best thing about indie brands – the customer-to-maker relationship is so much closer, so you can work together to ensure you get just what you want!

I decided to pair it with my new favourite ASOS leggings and my equally garish Office wedge trainers that jingle every time I take a step from all that bad-ass chainage.

This is the first time you’ve ever seen parts of my old bedroom (other than my collaged doors as seen a few posts down.) As you can see, and probably guess, it’s very colourful and kitsch, full of Ugly Dolls and children’s bedspreads left over from my 14 year old self. I’ll be honest, I’ve loved coming back to it now at 22 – The colourful walls ensure I wake up happy in the morning!

    I love the way your room is basically a time capsule. As I know I will probably be back home for a year or two after uni as it is so close to work, I redecorated mine so it is rather elegant now! Not that the reclaimed wood coffee table chests are not full of soft toys, mind you!

    I truly love your style. It’s always colorful, playful, and nostalgic for the 90’s!
