Bed Time Bliss.

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

 My bedroom is my comfort zone, dressing room and best friend all in one.

It is so important to make your bedroom feel as comfortable and safe as you can. The average human will spend one third of their lives asleep, and this isn’t including all those little naps! 

BED TIME = BEST TIME

I decided my little room needed a revamp so I decided to make the trek to Ikea! Armed with not much money and no real idea of what I actually wanted/needed!

My bed frame was only £90 which is amazing for the quality of it! Its a light, cute aluminium design and was extremely easy to build! As a petite 5’2 woman, I was worried I would struggle to build this. I can’t say it was easy but it’s up and still standing! 

I looked forever for inspiration for a feature above my bed but found nothing that I felt I could cope with doing alone! I ended up creating this simple, blissful curtain detail! It creates the perfect ambient lighting especially when partnered up with a few candles.

The LED lights were £6, make sure if you do a similar design that the lights are LED so they don’t heat up and leave you with a pile of ashes instead of a bedroom!

The curtain pole was under £10 and the thin voile curtain was £4. I am so in love with this feature. It’s so simple but elegant! 

Finally I brought a little light pink blanket to run along the bottom of my bed. This was a steal for £4. It is so light and perfect for the spring/summer evenings spent lay on my bed! 

Read me a story,
tuck me in tight,
say a sweet prayer
and kiss me goodnight.

LIFE CAN BE F*****G CRUEL & BEAUTIFUL

When I was a young girl the world was a magical place, full of fun, love and most of all it was safe.

I wanted to be a ballerina, an author, an archeologist, a pop star, a rally driver, a hero in any sort of career. I wanted to be married, have babies and puppies.

When I hit 18 I realised sadly it was very likely that none of these careers would be for me. Life had other plans for me. Life put me in situations that felt like the darkest depths that a human could go to, life made me feel worthless and life tested my soul to the very limits it could reach. 

As a human once you reach the very darkest point that anyone could physically reach, you have no where left to go. Describing this point in my life is unexplainable, the pain and the black is too much. It is like reaching the core of the earth a pitch black nothing, some people describe it as being a wall but the word wall, implies there is something on the other side. Which there was not. It was nothing a pure black never ending. If you have ever experienced deep deep depression you will understand the pain and helplessness that comes along with it.

The world isn’t here to make you feel good, and other people aren’t here to make you feel good. You have to learn about yourself, take time out to research different things, do activities you’ve never done and find what really makes your heart happy.
