ROOM TOUR: Inside VavaViolet's Editor-in-Chief's quirky bedroom and office

I'm a nosey lil thing so one of my favourite past times is to watch room tours on YouTube or scroll through pretty pictures while munching on a salad in awe of beautiful homeware. I feel selfish enjoying every body else's rooms and homes but not sharing my own so today I thought I would give you an insight into my bedroom and my office. 

This is where I sleep, occasionally eat in bed while desperately trying not to get crumbs everywhere, binge on Netflix, check out my non-existent abs in the mirror and also get a lot of shit done. 

There is nowhere cosier than your own bedroom so mine is filled to the brim with my character. I have a girly side, a tom boy side, and a geeky side. I like to think that my room portrays all of me. 

I'll leave you to browse through countless photos now!

This is the 'beauty section' of my room. I basically have a really long desk and half is beauty and the other half homes my computer. The desk is from Ikea and has two sets of Ikea Alex draws underneath it. Which yes, my makeup collection lives in there. Who wants that tour?

The acrylic draws that my lipsticks live in are from Muji and the acrylic stand that my most used products stand on is from Amazon.

I got fed up of dust getting on my makeup brushes so I purchased this (yes, acrylic again) storage system from Amazon. It's perfect and keeps them clean and also is so much better for your skin as I'm not rubbing dust into my pores. I have two different sets as one lot didn't fit all my brushes in it so I also have a smaller one without any draws that you can get from Amazon. Once I've used a brush I put it in this cup from the Disney Store (which they sadly don't stock anymore but they have others of different characters) as it encourages me to clean them asap. Well, as you can tell in this photo I need to get cleaning... 

The utterly adorable bear dish that looks after my daily jewellery was from Next and is sold out but Next has similar ones out every winter. Another good place to look for cute dishes like this is Oliver Bonas. 

The above photos are all from the side of the desk where my Mac lives. I got it last week and I am beyond in love with it. I went with the 27" inch because well, the bigger the better aye ladies!

Next to my Mac I have some acrylic (I like being able to see what I'm looking for without having to open a draw OKAY?!) storage from John Lewis where I keep pens and other cute stationary that I don't use. The majority of my stationary is from Paperchase because I like to waste my money clearly. On the other side of my computer, I have an acrylic letter holder from Amazon where I keep documents that I need currently, birthday cards to write, business cards, and all things to do with work such as a shorthand notebook. 

Behind my stationary display, I have some photos of me and my friend Kay who is in the army. I like to keep her there to remind me that I'm all cosy at home while she's most likely crawling through mud at camp. I'm joking, of course. It's because I do have feelings and miss her all of the time. And yes, those are my tits. You're welcome. 

My moo moo mouse mat that I call Milky is from Amazon. I doubt you care about it but I think it's pretty f*cking cool.

The guitars are handmade from a shop in Chichester so I sadly can't leave a link to them but I'm sure there will be similar on the old internet. The black and white one is Ozzy Osborne and the other one is obviously The Rolling Stones. 

Again my coasters of the sweets are handmade and are from Camden market aka my favourite place in the entire world. Seriously, go there if you love quirky homeware.

Above my Mac, I have a massive (and I mean massive) cork board full of inspiration, cute cards, and all things that I love. I just think an office isn't an office until you've chucked one of these on the wall. 

Every girl needs a 'fashion corner' in their room and this is mine. This is where I get inspired and where I think about my outfits (I do actually stand here and deeply think about it, seriously). I have a massive wardrobe on the other side of my room because I'm an addict and spend all my money on clothes and shoes. 

The chest of draws is from Ikea, the acrylic stands that feature my favourite boots are from Amazon, and the shoes are from literally everywhere.

(My coats are faux fur don't throw red paint on me).

I am forever changing my bookshelf around but it always features my nick knacks such as a lucky globe from Tenerife, a Koloa that my boyfriend's brother brought me back from Australia, adorable Skinny Dip clutch bags that I'm too scared to use because they are art, a picture of me and my boyfriend at the Harry Potter Studios, and so much more. It's a corner of my room that makes me smile every time I look at it. 

Perhaps the geekiest part of my room but this is my Funko Pop collection. They're little figures of characters from films, TV shows, and more that are collectables (some are worth hundreds of pounds now before you laugh). The glass cabinet is from Ikea and the stands that are specially made to fit inside are from Amazon. My Pops are mostly from Amazon as well as comic shops and the odd random place.

My window sill is another place where nick knacks are housed. I mean, how cute is my nan in that little hat? The little girl looking drowned in puppy fat is me and the lady in pink is my beautiful mother if I do say so myself. The dog is Honey aka my child.

All three of these posters were bought from Camden Market. What did I tell you? Go and check it out!

I always have white bedding without fail. I like my double bed to be plain and not distract from all the other colours and patterns in my room. But of course, I have a panda which I do sometimes cuddle as I fall asleep (I can't lie) and a Dalmatian cushion from the Disney Store because I'm a child at heart. 

I've saved the best for last, my own Bullseye! I have always loved and wanted my own Bullseye so he was so worth the £24 that I paid for him from the Disney Store.

I hope you enjoyed having a nose around my room and I'd love it if you could leave me a comment below letting me know what you think of my space! If you have a room tour post or video please tweet me it (@vavaviolett) as I'll check it out in a second flat.
