University Room Tour

February 22, 2017

I am in love with my flat this year. I'm a whopping 5 minutes walk from the uni campus & my lectures, I have all the food shops a stones throw away, the flat is modern and clean, and I have a great chum to live with. There's nothing more important that being happy in your flat when you're at uni - its your retreat when times get stressful and tough, it should be your happy place.

This flat is everything I need for my fourth year, and has really helped me while I stress about everything else thats going on in my life. I've put love and effort into filling it with happy things to make me smile when I go in. Although its a small space, I worked with what I had and managed to find a spot for everything to fit in.

I've decked my room out in all my favourite things, while sticking to a student budget - so the majority are from Primark or Poundland & the like. It's become a lovely little home this year, where I love to spend time watching Netflix and unwinding from the day. It also helps that its got white walls, meaning I can add colourful items. Oh and get this - the radiator works, so I didn't freeze to death this winter! What more can a student want?

I thought to kick off my youtube channel for this year (since it got lost in the stress of dissertation and blogmas last year) that I'd film a wee room tour, showing off how I've decorated my little space. Its a short wee video, that gives you a little introduction into my life. I'm still a bit awkward with filming etc so I do apologise for the intro and ending - but if you persevere with me, I'm sure I'll get better. (And get a better filming angle & lighting lol).

Let me know what you think of it, and be sure to like, comment and subscribe to my youtube! Lost In Wanderlust

  3. You have very nice and simple room! I love those fresh colors. When I was studying in Ohio my room had blue carpets and wooden brown doors - not the most beautiful combo haha! Those little details like the black board for a to do list are also super cute. Thanks for sharing!
