I've been really fortunate to live in a lovely area of Bristol, on a lovely street, in a lovely house, and in a really lovely room this year, and I'm going to miss it a lot. As a student, I think it's really important to make your bedroom your own little sanctuary, your haven, your personal home within your shared home (this year I've been living with six friends!) Personally, I love keeping my room clean and tidy, and it's really important that it reflects my personality - cue an explosion of girly nick-nacks!
At the beginning of this year I blogged about the best ways to decorate a student room, but obviously I've just put up more and more posters, pictures and revision notes (they make me feel smart... ish) over the year, and I love it. I'm always collecting postcards and ripping pages out of magazines to add to my (some may say OTT) bedroom, and I hope these pictures may give you some decorating ideas. Or maybe you'd just like to have a nosey round my room. Hey, I'm not judging. I'd do the same.

|I spend most of my days sitting here working/blogging/on facebook, and I love it. Fairy lights are a must.|
|Keep calm and drink tea = my mantra. And yes, these are tea towels on the wall, but I think they're too pretty to use for drying pots and pans.|
|I covered a plain set of drawers in a pretty throw, and on top you'll find two massive dictionaries that haven't been used nearly enough, my yummy tin of goodies, and one of my many scrapbooks.|
|Using a Clinique box as home for my nail varnishes (and this isn't even all of them!)|
|Love my (sort-of) walk-in wardrobe, despite how overflowing it is. Yes, those are wellies at the back. I hate rain.|
|One Direction calendar. Natch. I love being able to go down to the garden from my bedroom.|
|Edgy shot from the floor. (Bunting made from old PJ bottoms!)|
|I like displaying my pretty toiletries. Chanel was a freebie. #studentwin|
|Paperchase = my life|
|Cards from my mum, so many cake-related presents, photos in pretty frames and my lip-balm deck-chair (what, don't you have one?)|
