Productive Weekend



 
Well, hello there. I am very happy to announce that I've had a rather productive weekend! Because whereas I usually spend my weekends in bed and on the computer, this week I finally got some things done. I've had this idea in my head of how I wanted to redecorate my room for quite a while and so I went and bought that shelf some weeks ago but never got around to putting it up. And I've always wanted some fairy lights but never managed to find ones that I liked. But then I went to IKEA last wednesday and bought soo many things (even though I didn't really need anything), including the bed sheets (unfortunately, the pillow case wasn't big enough :( ), pretty much every scented candle I could find and those beautiful fairy lights. I wasn't too sure about them but now I'm soo happy and I think they're perfect.

So, on Saturday, I had this perfect plan figured out of how me and my boyfriend (Sam) are gonna put up my shelf and the fairy lights and everything. Unfortunately I'm not really used to putting up shelves and drilling holes in walls and things like that. So I basically spent the first hour sitting around and being afraid that something might go wrong and that we didn't have the right equipment and material. But when my mom came home, the three of us finally started the whole thing and it totally worked out. My mother is surprisingly good when it comes to this kind of work and of course Sam was a great help too. So, to be honest, I didn't really do much myself. But mental support counts, right?


 


And then, that evening, it was time to improve my blog a little. Now, I think a huge thanks to my lovely boyfriend would be appropriate here. Because, first of all, I don't own photoshop myself and even if I did, I wouldn't really be able to use it. So I went over to his place and we designed a new header and all the links to my social media and I'm just really really happy with how everything turned out. I'm hoping to create my own background someday, too; the one I use at the moment is from Hot Bliggity Blog.

But all in all, I couldn't be happier with my room and my blog. I can't believe everything turned out exactly how I imagined it. I usually have this image in my head of how I want something and then it never ever works out the way I imagined it. And this time it just did!

Thank you so much for reading!
