I'm broke. With 3 weeks until pay day.
But look at what I've spend my money on...it's so lovely :)
(also ridiculously girly, but I don't care! I love it)
Blush Scarlett Collection - Dunelm Mill £5.99 - £24.99 (although I got 20% off)
The smaller pillows I've had for years. One is handmade and the others are from various different shops.

I'd been looking for a small double bed for my room for ages, and I finally found one I liked from John Lewis but it was always out of stock, so I bit the bullet and just bought a full sized double instead. With the mattress it came to over £570! Eek! And then it took me a couple of days after putting it up to find bedding I liked. I was tempted by this one from Next but finally fell in love with the Blush Scarlett Collection at Dunelm Mill (very similar to the Next one with the 3D flowers, but a heck of a lot cheaper! The whole set at Dunelm Mill - duvet cover, sheet and 4 pillow cases came to under £55 (in the sale) whereas just the duvet cover at Next was more than that!)

I've put my feather fairy lights that I got from Tesco donkeys years ago back up because I don't have any space for a bedside table to put a lamp on. It's also going to really annoy me that the shot glass shelf I had my dad put up in the middle of the wall so it would fit with a double bed, doesn't actually line up with the middle of the bed! I could move the bed across a little bit but then there'd be a gap between the bed and the wall and that would bug me even more.

So my bedroom is almost complete now! I just want some sort of storage box to sit at the end of the bed (got to find somewhere to put all the handbags I had under my old bed) but they're proving difficult to find, and I don't want to spend more than £100 on one. Oh and I'm thinking of a little corner shelf for above the bed, just somewhere to put a glass of water and my glasses when I'm sleeping.

Having spent all my money on this bed, I now can't afford any of the Photojojo goodies I just blogged about on 27 Kodak Moments :(


  1. Oh my this is absolutely beautiful, an expensive buy but surely an investment as in it will last you a long time. You spend many hours a night in your bed so it deserves the attention ;)

    1. Yeah I figured the price tag was worth it because I plan to have this bed for many years yet! And I thought for the future the double size would be better than a small double.

      I've found I've spent more time in it so far than I would've in my old bed, it just looks so inviting and comfortable! Haha :)
