This weekend has been rough. I haven’t had the internet at my new house and I’ve been so busy that I didn’t have any time to work on a post for Monday. I’m trying my hardest to do at least 1 post every week. That hasn’t worked very well, unfortunately. Yet, I’m still going to try, because I love it. Now that I’m mostly settled, I can spend more time on my blog!
Moving is difficult. Everyone knows that, but I think you don’t realize how difficult until you actually experience it for yourself! My room is now functioning, but keep in mind I just moved in. I haven’t had a chance to personalize it. That, we’ll save for another blog post down the road. I’ll be honest. My room is still just a tad messy, so I just took pictures of my favorite parts of the room. I’m still trying to find places for everything! 😖
The first thing I want to show you is my closet. It’s not a typical “girl-sized” closet (if ya know what I mean). I managed to get all of my clothes in there with these wonder hangers. I also got the thin velvet hangers to make more room. My favorite thing is this dresser type thing that’s barely visible due to all of the clothes, but it stores a lot! I have all of my hair, makeup, and other beauty products in there.
(These are the same hangers I got and they seem to work pretty well)
Next on the list are the bookshelves. I don’t have a lot of books (clearly), but I like having space to put stuff. I didn’t have anywhere else to put my shoes, so I put them on display on my bookshelf. Then the other one is for other stuff. I do have some books on there. The top shelf is dedicated to candles (I love candles). I’ll probably get more now that I have a better space for them!
I have a good sized collection of nail polish… That just means that I can have any color nail polish that I want! The ones that are on the side are glittery! The only issue is that I’m not very good at making decisions, so that aspect is always kind of difficult. It’s not just nail polish on here, though, there’s a picture of my name that I made like 5 years ago. I got the hippo from my brother for Christmas a while ago, because he used to call me a hippo. I love giraffes and my grandmother gave me a card with them, and I love it. The picture frame with the turtles I got from VA Beach forever ago, and the picture is me with a wild tortoise that I met in Niger, Africa. I thought the picture fit the frame nicely.
This is just a nice decoration to make my room seem less cluttered. I had all these purple mason jars and I have no idea what to do with them and there isn’t any room in our cupboard for them, so I just put them on my windowsill. If you have any ideas, feel free to let me know what you got!
These are the same mason jars that I have.
Last, but not least…
My roommate got a puppy! Her name is Darla and she’s a Great Dane. She’s only 9 weeks old, so she isn’t super big yet. Yesterday, we found out that she was 26 lbs. I just want to show the world how cute she is. So here ya go!
