Welcome to my crib

My first ever post on this blog covered the decoration of my university room in halls, and it’s become kind of a tradition since to let you in and give a little online tour of the space I call my own – and my third and final year here in Nottingham is no exception. My taste has developed immensely from my freshers’Β room, which I loved but was far more cluttered and densely decorated than now.

On that note, I’d like to dedicate this post to third year, in a kind of ‘cheers’ to everything that’s brought me here so far and everything to come in the future! Here are some bits I’m lusting over this autumn that would really help coax me out of bed on those ugly hangover days…
