My Space

I have not had a dressing table for over 5 years, in fact the last time I had one I lived with my parents in my old bedroom after returning home from uni for approximately 5 months before realising that it couldn't continue. I'm sure that all 21 year olds returning from uni feel the same. So I packed up, and headed to the big smoke. In the preceding 5 years I have moved 5 times, and 4 of those places have been merely temporary (wow, there are a lot of numbers in that paragraph). The problem with temporary places, and small one bedroom flats in both London and Bristol is that there is not a lot of space, so my lotions and potions were all kept in boxes and bags, under beds and in drawers and I was generally sitting on random patches if carpet or sides of beds or standing, sometimes having to stoop to put on my make up and do my hair, and rarely able to find the thing I desperately needed.

Finally we brought our own house in Bristol (the biggest move), and after a few temporary solutions whilst we were decorating I have finally been able to slot in a dressing table!!! I am totally thrilled with this addition to my house, and I have literally made the worlds girliest corner. I was able to unpack 5 years worth of lotions and potions, chuck away the rubbish and re-discover old friends.

Whilst I still have a few things to unpack and a couple more storage solutions to purchase I just wanted to show you my little corner and my make up finally all laid out ready to use. It is like total girl heaven and I love it, my husband on the other hand is not that keen! 


  1. love your dressing table, it is so girly. I'm on the hunt for one at the moment. x

  2. I love this! It looks so pretty! :) x

  3. Oh gosh, I have total dressing table envy. I live in the smallest flat with the tiniest bedroom so can't fit a dressing table in, geez can hardly fit my double bed and wardrobe! I really love the flowers round the mirror, are they fairy lights too? they look beautiful.
    I have followed you now. I have a make up give away on my blog, which I only started two weeks ago, if yo uwould like to enter.
