10/23/2017- Some Changes

Look! I’m making progress. It’s another actual blog post.

I’ve been wanting to make this one for a while actually, since I got home from Jonathan’s, but I just never sat down and worked on it.

Anyway, today is a post all about the things I’ve bought for my room since being home again, and a little review of one of my favorite bloggers/YouTubers things she has for sale.

So, in the window next to my desk, I’ve got these two cute succulents, each in their own little terracotta pots that I hand painted. I got my inspiration color-wise from a Pinterest pin. To the left of those is this little frame I bought from Ross, where I put two cute Instax photos of mine. On the right of the succulents is this cool see-through blue bottle that I got from Target’s Halloween section. I thought they all looked really cool together.

Onto the merch type stuff!

My absolute inspiration for décor and fashion and photography, is the amazing Marzia Bisognin (FIRST NAME: BLOG; LAST NAME: YOUTUBE). If you haven’t checked her out before, please do! She’s literally goals.

Anyway, this past September I decided I was finally going to buy some things from her store . I bought a sticker pack of her Forest Creatures (eventually got another one this month), the trio of her beautiful designs, and the perfume she made with Scent Trunk. Along with everything I bought, came a free Wet’n’Wild lip balm! It was super nice to receive a gift just for making a purchase.

I love those stickers. At first, I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but then I remembered I had this binder I was trying to keep a schedule in. I figured if I decorated it with the three creatures, I’d maybe use it more often! Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of the binder, but trust me, they’re cuties. I also added one on to my laptop (also no picture), along with some other stickers I bought. I’ve never been the type of person who likes putting stickers on computers, but I saw how cute Marzia’s laptop looked, and I just had to do it too! I’ve got a forest creature, a few Sailor Moon stickers, a Calcifer from Howl’s Moving Castle, this cool sticker design of Mae from Night in the Woods, and these pretty stickers I bought from stores on Etsy. I’ll do a post sometime soon with the stickers and all the shop names!

The designs she made had to be trimmed down a bit so I could put them into frames, but I didn’t lose a bit of the picture. I got the frames $4 each from Walmart and matched them up with whatever design I thought best suited it. The hand one I love so much I’m considering it for a tattoo, although it would mean my next two tattoos were hand designs!

And finally, let’s talk about the perfume.

I wouldn’t wear this scent. It’s not that it smells bad, because it doesn’t. But its definitely not what I was expecting. It reminds me of this stress spray my boyfriend gave me, which goes on your pillows before you sleep. It also gives me hints of the Stress Away oil my sister-in-law loves from Young Life. So even though I wouldn’t necessarily wear it out, as I’m more of a floral scented person, it’s been handy to spray around my desk before I sit down to write, or breathe in before I go in for an exam.

Alright, that’s it for now! I hope you guys enjoyed, and I’ll see you next week!

Bye! Kaylie
