A Room Tour

Hey everyone, happy Saturday! I've decided to do a slightly different post today- a bedroom tour! Since moving to France, I've got a lot more into customising and interior design with all the car boot sales and brocantes about. Before I had this room, as a kid, I pretty much shared my bedroom with my older sister in a bunk bed- good fun but as you get older, you need your own space to breathe! After that, I had a teeny weeny room back in the Scotland where there was literally a square of floor space in the middle. I made the most of it, it was all pretty in pink & my parents did everything to make it as nice as it could be. After we moved to France, I spent the first few months living out of a suitcase, sleeping in a camp bed followed by a year sharing a double bed with my sister, then finally getting my own bed (but still sharing rooms)... you could probably say I've been through it all! But now, I finally have the bedroom of my dreams, my little cove where I can escape & just chill. I'm a big lover of floral, toile du jour and shabby chic as you'll see from the photos. I've spent the years changing & adding trinkets, things I've found in different places & vintage furniture to give it a unique feel, I hope you enjoy this and maybe get some inspiration for your bedroom from it too.

This is a vintage sofa that I got from an antique store for Christmas, it was around 200 euros, I just fell in love with the pale blue colour and the 'etoile du jour' design is one of my favourites. It's also very practical as it can be wheeled closer to my tv and it can double up as a great mattress for when friends come to stay.
Before these were a dated pine chest of drawers, which me and my mum sanded down, painted white and added some crystal knobs to! Just shows you don't need to go and buy new furniture, just modernise the old stuff!
My chill out area, the leather Indian style 'poof' (I love that word) is from a car boot sale for about 5 euros.
  
Phew! Sorry that this post was so picture heavy, but I really wanted to get some good shots of my room and decided to go a bit O.t.t. I hope you enjoyed this post and perhaps it gave you some ideas & inspiration for your own bedroom.

Summer Festival Fashion

It is currently pouring down with rain today (yes, even in France it rains) & I decided to cheer myself up by looking to the promising summer ahead! It is slowly but surely approaching and it's getting me all excited about what to wear during the holiday months. There are festivals all over the world during the summer holidays with the most famous being in Europe. I, Lucie Rose, am going to be popping my festival cherry this summer (oh how wrong that sounds) & going to my first EVER rock festival in Spain, Bilbao BBK Live. I am so excited. The line up includes Kings Of Leon, Fatboy Slim, Two Door Cinema Club & Alt-J and many others, so excited! Did I say that already?

 High-street & online fashion have plenty to choose from so you are really spoilt for choice! I hunted down the shops online for festival looks whether you'll be dancing along to your favourite band in the mud at Glastonbury or jamming in the hot climate at Bilbao (like me!)



1. Studded Bag, £25 Boohoo 2. Sunglasses, £20 TOPSHOP 3. Bikini, £28, TOPSHOP 4. Dress, £36 TOPSHOP 5. Feather & Chain headdress, £12 River Island 6. Crochet top, £22.99 New Look 7.

Dress, £28 Rihanna Limited Edition River Island 13.Bracelets, £6.99 New Look.

I had a lot of fun looking for things for this look as with this style you can throw loads of different patterns together and it'll work. I love the bohemian look & one of my main style inspirations is Vanessa Hudgens.




1. Vest, £14.99 New Look 2. Hunter Wellies, £80 TOPSHOP 3. Set of bracelets, £14 TOPSHOP 4. Aztec dress, was £35 now £20! River Island 5. Leather Look jacket, £58, TOPSHOP 6.

Tie dye backpack was £48, now £25! Urban Outfitters.

This look is very versatile and everything can be mixed and matched. The wellies are essential and go with anything, as well as the backpack, leather jacket & denim shorts (must-have). I am in love with the 'Crown & Glory' headbands which remind me of halcyon festival days.

MY FESTIVAL ESSENTIALS:

  • Tent (duh)
  • Sleeping bag, yoga mat, pillow 
  • Torch (cause finding your tent when it's dark & you're drunk is difficult)
  • Make up remover & baby wipes
  • Dry shampoo, bobbles & bobby pins
  • Water (to get rid of that hangover and to rehydrate from all that singing/yelling/dancing)
  • Bottle opener
  • A packable rain poncho (ugly but practical)
  • Wellies
  • Glow sticks and glow in the dark paint...optional

Whether you're going to a festival or just simply raving it up with your friends in your back garden, there's a summer look for everyone! Dig out those shorts, bikinis and summer dresses... get in the summer mood & hopefully the sun will shine too!

Get The Cara Look

My girl crush right now is  >>>>> Cara Delevingne.


She's an English Rose, has effortlessly cool style & the best brows in town. She is my new style icon & I just love some of the hilarious faces she pulls in photos. She's not afraid to be herself or goof around & she's friends with Karl Lagerfeld... admit it, we're all a bit jealous of her. I saw this picture of her online and browsed the high street to re-create her effortlessly cool rock chick style. Layering is key to this look.
