Tidy Space, Tidy Mind.

Or so they say...
You know when your parents enter your room and state "It looks like a bomb's gone off in here", well in the past several months, my room has become just that...a literal bomb site.
It'd just gotten so bad that it was impossible to get back on top of it. My clothes had worked themselves into the infamous 'floordrobe' - except it was pretty much all of my clothes in the mountainous pile (I'm telling you, I found clothes in there today that I'd forgot I even owned), my shoes were scattered everywhere, along with DVD's and everything was in dire need of a good dusting. 
Anyway, I thought with one of my last remaining days before I head back to work, I would take the time to get it back into fully working order. 
I completely switched around my furniture, giving everything a good clean before building two new rails for my clothes and coats (I've accumulated so many coats over the past year it was a squeeze actually getting into my room with them all hanging on the back of my door). 
I also took the time to de-clutter a little bit, getting rid of any old clothes I've not worn in the past six months and bits and bobs I no longer have use for - I'm a serial hoarder when it comes to things like invoices, receipts, tags etc...
My shoes are now stacked neatly on my shoe rack and actually sit in pairs rather than having one under my desk and the other under my bed - a nightmare in the mornings I assure you. 
To go along with the new cleanliness of my room, I picked up these Yankee Candle Tea Lights in Vanilla Cupcake (£6.99). Vanilla Cupcake is my favourite scent by Yankee Candle, I just love anything vanilla scented and I like the tea lights because they're much cheaper than the jars, plus I have two of these Buddha Tea Light holders which they work wonderfully for. 

Hopefully, I'll be able to keep on top of it and not allow it to get back into the state it was in 5 hours ago. Yes, 5 hours...Cleaning is hard work.



  1. Heard alot about these candles! Want to try them! I love vanilla scented candles!


  2. I know exactly what you mean, I need to do a spring clean and get my room sorted out. Your post has given me some motivation to do it so thanks for that 👌🏻
