So Linda has moved out and I am now decorating her room, do its my room. I have never known how bloody stressful it is getting stuff in for a knew room!
there curtain tiebacks are possibly my favourite purchase for my new room – that or my bed. they were bought in harry corry and i actually love them and cant wait to get my curtains up!!
these are my two colours – pink splash and mint. the bottom picture was the original colours – mint and queens mulberry. but the mulberry looked better in the pot and too dark on the wall. the pink is literally going on one wall (window wall) and the rest mint with blue-green decoration and my gorgeous big white bed from Ikea. i fell in love with ikea today!
this is a pic from JEM carpets – f**king nightmare. i have been shopping for a carpet for linda’s flat and now my new room and i officially do not wanna go again! it was horrible. i had my heart set on a nice blue-green carpet and i seen one in a shop with Linda and it was just too expensive. I was gonna end up going for a neutral colour like beige but i just didnt wanna settle for it!! carpet shopping – not a fave.
so this is my room, with a crate full of shoes and some crap crap crap lying about waiting oh so patiently so move next door!!! i’ll have a wee blog with most of the stuff i got for my room and where i got them etc.
for now though i am in bed watching khloe and lamar (basically cause there is nothing else on tv) and wondering what else to watch…. 90210 or desperate housewives….
No, this is not a “how-to” as to be honest i have NO idea how to de-clutter. My friends actually HATE my room, and always have something to say about it.
it is awful. i cannot see the top of drawers because of all the make up and DVDs and clutter on it. the dvds are there mainly because i have FAR too many and not enough space in my DVD drawer. I am also a hoarder…look at my mirror. i keep tickets, invitations, labels off clothes, pictures, cards and even a coaster! the tall drawers on the left? full of CRAP. well maybe not ALL crap, but the second drawer and the bottom drawer are full of nothing. completely useless nothingness.
I also have THIS.
this is a complete waste of space and i always feel (and my mum always points out) that i need it. the books (which i have just got from Linda, who was cleaning out her cupboard for moving) will just be going back to the cupboard in that room when i move next door. the cupcake will be going somewhere else and so will the terramundy. All the magazines will be added to my pile of Elle mags in the corner (which icant get into because theres things on top of them – NO ROOM!). and my laptop usually sits at the top.
Blar, blar, blar!
Anyhoo! So i googled “how to organise a room” and “my room is really small i dont know how to organise” (TIP for right now: GOOGLE EVERYTHING.) this has been my answer to everything these days! i had my donut in my hair the other day and someone in work asked me how i done it. so i didnt have the time to take it all out and show them (because i am always late for work…) so i tried and it’s hard to explain. So in the end i said “google it”. also if i am watching a movie and dont know who an actor/actress is me and Linda are like “IMDB it!”. the internet has everything…
apart from how to organise or somethings like “hoarders anonymous”. so i need a book…”organising for dummies” – OMG just had the best idea…is there a “…for dummies” website…
On this nice tuesday off, i figured i should probably blog since i haven’t since before GC. and i’ll be blogging about just that.
Gran Canaria was amazing. I wish i had a better tan though *sad face. I am also blogging while wtching jersey shore and texting/making arrangements for a group hang so it’ll probably take me forever and i’ll ramble – much like i’m doing now…
Lopesan Baobab is probably the nicest hotel i’ve ever stayed in. We (Me and Melo) were in awe the moment we stepped in the front doors. The African/Modern decor was just fabulous.
The head board was snakeskin – most likely not real. but gorgeous and the TV was hidden behind those wooden sliding doors. the room was such a perfect size and look a the lamps at each side of the massive bed!! it was all just awesome!!
Our first night –>
<– Our last night
On our amazingly huge balcony with a self timer! and infront of the main bar R. Burton Bar where we snagged some yummy cocktails some nights!
Me and my Meloneras cocktail! it was so very watermelon-y and delish!!
I would send everyone there! although it might be a bit pricy, melo and i booked it on a whim and we are so happy we done do. thats all we kept saying on holiday… “im so happy we done this”. the weather was gorgeous and the whole experience was amazing. i could never go below a 5* now! haha! no im completely kidding on…
On the way home i had some euros that i wanted to spend. on the way there i spotted the Urban Decay naked eye palette and i have wanted this for ages, and i had the euros so i though “why not?” and it turned out they never even had any! i was serously distraught ha! bit dramatic. but i bought an UD nail polish set, the colours are so gorgeous.
I’m currently wearing “superfreak” (second from the left) on all my fingers but the ring fingers, on which i am wearing the purple one (third from the right) and i cant remember what its called. The colours are all so so so pretty and you only need two coats. Theres nothing i can’t stand more than crappy nail polish that you need about 7 coats before it starts actually showing.
This is rather rambly and whatever. But I enjoy rambling and all. so i hope you enjoyed and please google lopesan baobab and see how amazing this hotel is! it’s just gorgeous!!
Had such an enjoyable weekend there. Friday I hung at the “Ranch” (my aunt and uncles house, it’s really just in the middle of nowhere) and came to the conclusion that I’m getting Pink Edition Monopoly for my Christmas! YEY!
I played Monopoly with my boyfriend a few weeks ago and loved it – even though i got my ass whooped!! Then i downloaded it on my iPhone and love it! So i was telling her and I googled “pink monopoly” n she was like “I’LL GET HER IT!” one Christmas present down.
So on Saturday my younger cousin came over to chill with me, as all i done was sit on the couch in front of the TV. I was trying my hardest to get her to play Glasgow Monopoly with me – tried and failed.
I’ve been dying for a night out and got one! WOO! Linda and her friends, James and Maria, and I went to oVo in Merchant City on Saturday night. I actually really loved it! Club OVO Glasgow – Fashionable clubbing for the social generation! Give it a look and see what you think. It’s like Tunnel for grown ups and when my girls come back from Turkey i am WELL taking them there because we’re getting WAY to old for Tunnel as its full of under agers and orange guuurrrls.
The drink was cheap and it wasn’t hurrendously busy, like that Saturday-bus where you are literally grinding the person behind you. And music you ask? RnB. Just the ticket.
Yesterday afternoon Ck and Neil (my sisters friends) came over to deliver a belated birthday present and i LOVED it. They bought me a bottle of Malibu and a FURBY! Now it’s a long story! I have a pacemaker and when Furbies first came out it was declared that persons with pacemakers should not be near them as there is a chip in them that can interact/interfere with them. But it’s a wee cutsie! Called SAlly (or Fernando). Look at it’s cute eyes!
Not long now i hit up GC 🙂 The hotel It’s amazing and i haven’t been yet! It’s a complete chilled out week away for and my gurrrl Melo.
