My Trinket Wall

This is sort of a continuation of my last post, Room Makeover: A Personal Touch. So check that out first, if you want.

Since I first left for England for university, before I even began this blog, I’ve kept little things. Continue reading “My Trinket Wall”

Room Makeover: A Personal Touch

When I last updated you guys on my room at my mom’s, it was in this post. Well, I’ve made a few changes since, and I think this is as close to done as it’ll ever get. And you know what? I like it. Continue reading “Room Makeover: A Personal Touch”

Room Makeovers Without Money

I recently read a great article “Minimalism is Just Another Boring Product Wealthy People Can Buy” which raised some great points about how minimalism and nice decor are out of reach for most people, and it got me thinking. The rooms and dorm rooms I’ve decorated over the last five years, could I have done those if it weren’t for my parents’ and my place of financial privilege? Answer: Probably not.

Styling a Bookshelf

This is long overdue. It took so long, in fact, that yet another piece for my room arrived today and I considered waiting a bit longer until it was installed to do an entire room reveal. I decided not to. So let’s get to it. Continue reading “Styling a Bookshelf”

An Incomplete Room Tour

Perhaps I’ve got a career in interior design…

A Brief History of My Room

Today was a big day. My room looks more like a bedroom and less like a construction site than it has in months. Jeez. Months. Has it really taken me that long? Nonetheless, I did what I wanted to do before I leave again for England, and tonight I will be able to reap my reward by sleeping in my own bed again, finally.

Two-Toned Subtlety

I thought I finished Book 3 back in the first week of June. I started the next book and everything, but something about the way it ended just didn’t feel right. For the past five weeks, I kept going back to how things ended. When I considered crossing out everything I’d written since then and trying again, my sister told me I was crazy. Over the weekend, I added another chapter to the end of Book 3 anyway. I’m satisfied with it now, although it’s only a first draft and far from acceptable.

In a way, I’ve felt like that with a lot of things, like they didn’t feel complete, but they were good enough. Continue reading “Two-Toned Subtlety”
