Little Uni Bedroom

Hey guys,

So I promised I would give you a little tour around my uni bedroom! Basically I'm living in Cardiff University halls at the moment (Talybont South) , so my room is very tiny and cramped, however I have tried to make it as ME and homely as possible as I do have to live her for a year.

I must admit, at first I did find my new room VERY small, as my room at home is about 3x bigger if not more, however I am happy with it and it is really cosy and stuff so I won't moan! And I'm also lucky enough to have my own toilet and shower yay! 

Right this is my pin board sort of shelf area! When I first arrived the back bit was such a horrible dull grey color it just made me feel so ill to look at and you have to be really careful with what you actually put up in your room or you can get fined so I went to tesco and found this really sweet wrapping paper for like £1 and created a sort of wallpaper affect! I was so pleased because it just makes my room look so much nicer and more me and it was so cheap and easy!

As you can see I try and go for an almost vintage look by sticking up cute little cards (mostly from my mum) and like photo's of friends and a few frames and things (photo's are the best to remember all you friends from home)! I also added some really cheap tesco fairy lights for about £2 and just wrapped them round my frames and jewellery box, this looks so sweet at night, so cosy!

Again here are just a few more little cards and postcards and just random bit I frequently add to as I go along! And also my bunny night light from my previous post which was £8 in Urban Outfitters!

On the left is how my room looks at night time, I think its just so cosy and warm and perfect to just chill out in! I have a couple of Banksy posters on my walls and an Alice in Wonderland one as well!

Close up of my fairy lights, got these from The Range and I think they were about £5 but you can also get them off Amazon! I wasn't too sure about the red at first, but I'm glad I got them as it gives the room a warm sort of glow!
My bedding is just a cheap Ikea bedding, and my throw at the end is just a blanket from tesco for £10 I think, very flowery room!

As I said before, lots of pictures from back home and now lots from uni too make me smile and are sometimes just nice to sit back and look at some familiar faces :)

My Macbook sticker I love, it was just from ebay for a couple of quid but I also bought the plastic case from Ebay for £10 which I love too!

And finally my cushions and my toys, yay! As I said in a previous post my pug cushion was just £4 from Primark and adds to the room! The clock cushion I thought was very Alice in Wonderland style which I adore and was from Marks and Spencers along with this flowery bed set and the two little disney toys were from the disney store and I just love them so cute!

Hope you all liked looking round my room, post to me a few snaps of yours?

Much love,
Alice May xoxox
