Home Comforts And University

So it's that time of year again when most of us are back at uni. Moving away from home means having your own little space to decorate and make you feel at home.

Even though I am going in to my second year I am still living at a halls of residence. Which means another year of putting up with most ugliest curtains you have ever seen! However I have picked up a few little things to add to my room to make it morse cute and cosy (and distract from the curtains).

My main cosy essentials are a lovely smelling candle. I have chosen Yankee Candles Vanilla Cupcake flavour, I have a very weak sense of smell so love strong sweet scents such as this one. I also love the hearts shaped clock that I picked up from Next. For uni and well any sort of studying it is very important to be organised, I got this pretty notepad from a local gift shop and the cute duck shaped paper clips from Paper Chase to keep everything secure. Lastly childish or old lady like as it is, a fluffy big blanket and a magazines are an essential for me!


  1. I really liked having my room at university and the new opportunity to decorate it every year. I live with my boyfriend and really miss having my own room to decorate as I wanted - I now have to be careful not to be too girly! However, it's about time I got a few Yankee Candles around the place - they always smell beautiful xx
