Cute Bedroom Accessories

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

Since moving house in Summer 2009, I've had to make the most of a teensy little box bedroom. This means it can be quite a challenge to decorate the space without it appearing too cluttered. However, I have acquired a few lovely pieces which I think add a more homely, personal touch to the room. They're a mixture of hand made gifts and shop bought items i've picked up on my travels. As i'm in the process of swapping beds, I haven't posted a photograph of my whole room as a temporary mattress bed kind of ruins the effect! Here are some of my favourite accessories anyway.

When I have my own house my dream is a cute, shabby chic bedroom, but for now i'm content with these little touches. I'm always on the hunt for pieces like these so if you have anything similar, i'd love to see some photos for inspiration!

Love, Anna x

Bastille - Bad Blood Album

So recently I was introduced to the amazing British band Bastille and became immediately obsessed with their refreshing mix of dramatic, yet soothing, electronic melodies. Shortly after, I purchased my own copy of their debut album, Bad Blood, for a reasonable £9. I think that alone goes to show how much I love them as I willingly spent money when I could have downloaded the album from YouTube for free (immoral and illegal, although often necessary due to surviving on a student budget).

Both lyrically and melodically, (is that even a word?) every song on the album is absolutely phenomenal. Despite having listened to the album fifty two million times(ish) I still cannot choose a favourite track! However, Flaws and Laura Palmer are particularly catchy, perfect for a private karaoke session! Also worth a mention is Oblivion, which I find soothing when i'm feeling a bit down.

Not to mention lead singer, Dan Smith, who has a mind blowing voice and is also insanely attractive. So, if you've been living under a rock for the last few years, I suggest you take a listen to Bastille as they are truly talented and a credit to the British music industry.
