Decorating My Make-Up Room!

Welcome to my make-up room! :)

No boys allowed!!  This is strictly a girls-only post, filled with all things pink and fluffy...hahaha!  I was so excited when we moved apartment because this time I got my very own make-up and closet room which I can decorate with lots of pink and girly items without having to worry about whether my fiancé will approve or not...yay!  It's also a place where I can chill on my own, film my videos, blog or read in peace!  Jonathan also gets his own study which is so great because that way we each have our own space even though we live together.

So I was feeling a little miffed as Jonathan bought a beautiful big desk, a new computer and flat-screen TV for his study, which meant that I had to wait till next month to decorate my room (boys' toys are expensive!!).  So my lovely mama was so kind and generous that she offered to take me shopping today for my make-up room!  This is just the beginning of its makeover but I was really pleased with what we got.  Here are a few pictures for you guys!  Above is what you see as soon as you walk in the door.

The bed/sofa (no-one will really be sleeping here, it's more of a lounging area)
Duvet cover is from Jasper Conran at Debenhams
Throw is from my little sister Erika (not sure where she got it)

At the foot of the bed is a chest-of-drawers, which is currently covered in a mess of jewellery and items I still haven't put away yet!  

My three cushions!!  I plan on buying a lot more and filling the bed with them, but for now it's just these three.  The faded pink and cream printed one is from Atlantic Homecare and the other two are from Debenhams.

How cute are my fairy lights?!  These are pink flower lights from Debenhams and I hung them around my window.  I don't plan on buying any curtains for the room as that's not really necessary...instead I'm going to get a very long sheer pink pashmina/scarf and drape it around the curtain rail.  I think that will look much prettier.

My vanity and windowsill
This tablecloth is also from Debenhams!

I also got a vanilla-scented candle from Debenhams.  Vanilla is my favourite scent!

Beside my vanity is a bedside table, where I store most of my jewellery and my laptop!

My make-up storage!  
These plastic storage systems were purchased at Home Store & More which I think is the UK/Ireland equivalent to Bed Bath and Beyond in the US.  The pink shoes postcard is from the V&A Museum in London.

Okay, here's where all the mess has gravitated you can tell we did a lot of shopping at Debenhams, haha.  Please excuse the messy clothes, jewellery and extremely ugly lamp which came with the apartment.  I intend on replacing it with something much prettier. Again, my room is far from complete...I have to frame and hang pictures on the walls, buy a few more things and get the rest of my closet organised.  But aside from that, I hope you enjoyed the pics!

You can leave now...bye!  Hahaha!

Stay Stylish!
