So, I thought I'd prepare a little post for the nosey lot out there (like myself heh) that like to see inside people's rooms, where they buy their things or just get some tips/ideas for themselves and for your university bedroom by showing you all my unversity bedroom. Or should I say, temporary, university bedroom. I was one of the unfortunate lot (well depends how you look at it really) that got put in accommodation that will be soon refurbished or demolished...no one really knows to be honest. So, come Christmas, I'll be somewhere else! Nevertheless, I wanted to make my new room as homely and comfortable as possible for the time that I am here by adding a few personal touches considering the room is, ahem, is a bit bland and tasteless (green curtains anyone?). I went shopping MAD in Primark seeing as I couldn't bring a lot of it over from France but was surprised at the great variety and quality at Primark's home range. I've listed above where you can find most of things I bought, if there's something I didn't mention- feel free to comment and i'll try and work out where I got it...I buy a lot of things so it's hard for me to remember it all...
Other room essentials i'd recommend are ipod speakers/radio, mugs/glasses, dvd's to watch on lazy days, slippers & a dressing gown, giraffe onesie (optional)...i'd also recommend going to a pound shop/pound savers for anything else. I got tons of things from there and it cost me next to nothing which is always good when you're on a tight student budget!
I hope you enjoyed this post and that it maybe gave you some tips for your university rooms/bedrooms in general. If you've done a similar post i'd love to see it so please comment a link to your post!
