A Teen Space

I have a niece (I actually have many nieces, though oddly have only done posts for one, so far) in homeschool, who also happens to have a very small space to call her own. So thinking about a redesign to her room I was inspired to write about what I found. Much like the last decor post I did (about a month ago, you can find it here, there’s also an instructional video about the wall decor in that post) I found the furniture at Walmart & the wall tattoos at Style & Apply. If you follow my links to either of these stores I will receive a commission on your purchases.

Let’s start with the bedding part of her room, trying to maximize the amount of available space she has in her little room. Keep in mind that the mattress is not included. The type of bed also does not require a box spring.

Teen Bedroom
Mainstays Twin Storage Bed, Alder ($159)
Your Zone Comforter Set, Purple Cheetah ($24.88)
Mainstays Mini Clip Lamp ($7.97)

On to the study area, simple easy to fit in a corner & functional. Also the chair is kind of cute. 😛

Homeschool Station

Mainstays L-Shaped Desk with Hutch ($89.00)
Nuvo Organizer Desk Lamp ($29.99)
Urban Shop Swivel Mesh Chair ($29)

Now on to a bit of wall art. Two of my selection are functional while the third is simply personality. Though she isn’t quite as into rock as I am, I couldn’t find a guitar with more of a country statement. Now the pieces are customizable so they wouldn’t have to be exactly as they are in my pic & keep in mind that the prices I list are the starting prices before they are more customized.

Teen Wall Decor

Tribal Dragon (19.95)
Time to Rock Decal Clock ($69.95)
Music Notes Wall Hanger ($49.95)

Vivacious

Today’s selections come the the always beautiful Lane Bryant. I enjoy my trips to their online shop, there is such an energy to the display & the lovely fashion choices. Everyone should have pride in their bodies, no matter what the media may be showing about “ideal” body type. We’re all different & we should rejoice in our variety. 😉 As with many of my posts, if you follow my link to Lane Bryant I will earn a commission on your purchases, I like to be up front about that sort of thing. 🙂

LARP Inspiration

I’ve put together a lovely sorceress outfit with items from The Pyramid Collection & jewelry from my boutique. I can’t help but love my role play. ❤ Naturally if you make any purchases from my jewelry shop, I will receive a commission, however I am not affiliated with The Pyramid Collection & will receive nothing should you follow my links to shop. Despite being turned down for their affiliate program I can’t help but continue to love their style, especially where fantasy attire is concerned. I thought about not including a handbag but changed my mind, as all sorceresses require a place to keep their spell components.

In Anticipation of Spring

Though the chill of February is still gripping my area, I can’t help but dream of the returning spring. This time I’ve put together an ensemble from Jolly Chic while thinking of my eldest niece.

Blog Facelift

yin-yang2

I’m sure you have noticed that there have been some visual changes to the blog. Now that I have a few months of blogging under my belt I decided that it was about time that I made myself at home & add a little personal style to my posts.

It took me a week to find a balance between style & functionality that appealed to me. Then a few more hours spent playing with the final overall look until I was satisfied with the changes.

Hope you, my beloved readers, like the change or at the very least don’t dislike it. 😀 I’m growing as a blogger & felt it was a little passed due that my page reflect more of myself. Time to get fully immersed now that I’ve gotten my feet wet.

This is turning out to be not much of a post, lol. Just wanted to touch base with my lovely readers after the sweeping changes to my blog. ❤

Affordable Valentine’s Look

Are you ready for a high end look without a high end price tag? I sure am! OASAP is having some massive sales going on at this time. Many of their items are very affordable under normal circumstances, but they’re amazing steals when marked down! For the ensemble I’ve put together the shoes are by far the most incredible deal being marked down from $85.90! Like many of my posts at the bottom (& to the right) is an affiliate link, if you follow any of my links I will earn a commission on your purchases. Yeah, I know, a day late, but this look was too good to pass up 😉

Keeping Up the Pace

Every day seems so hectic as I research & prepare my for each week of posts, in addition to my daily & weekly promotion of my boutique. Not only do I have to write each post but then I fill endless hours with trying to attract new readers across social platforms, while keeping an eye open for other methods. I am rather pleasantly surprised I have managed to stay on top of my schedule.

In order to maintain this pace I have to prioritize my daily goals & organize them into a daily to-do list. While this strategy may seem a little rigid it’s actually quite flexible as each moment of my day is not strictly regulated, so as things come up the flow of my day is not disrupted. Accomplishing the highest priority items on the list are where my energies are focused into first.

Meditation is a must to keep my mind sharp & centered on the task at hand. I spend 20 minutes a day at this, 10 shortly after I wake & another 10 about midday. I try not to meditate too close to sleepy time as it can increase the instances of insomnia by its restful & almost nap-like features & I have enough trouble with that on my own. lol

When things decide to spiral out of control for a day the most important thing of all is to not panic. Nothing ever gets better while I freak out, so it’s best to remain calm, no matter what life has chosen to throw at me at the moment. Sometimes you just have to let the day flow the way it wants to rather than force your own will onto it.

I am so grateful that you, my lovely readers, have taken a moment out of your, no doubt, equally busy day to commiserate with me at this time. 😉
