Room for Improvement with Money Supermarket

Monday, June 03, 2013

If there's one thing I love doing that's shopping for bits and bobs to make your bedroom or just a room of the house look nicer! I absolutely LOVE buying cushions, candles, picture frames and I love how it makes a room feel so much more homely I was absolutely delighted when I was asked to take part in Money Supermarket's room for improvement challenge when I was given £50 to make my university room look a little bit nicer! (yay!!) Here's what my room looked like before...

As you can probably see from my uni room i'm a bit of a girly girl and I love the whole 'lived in' look. I love photos and I have a few bloggers in my photos (you might be able to make out who!) on my wall! I like having magazines by my bed and photos of happy memories and I always felt I could make my room a little bit more girlier and so I made a trip to Urban Outfitters and another trip to Primark! (got to love home sections!) and here's the final result...

To me this feels a lot different! I have a lot of plain bedding and I wanted a floral duvet for so long and when I found one in Primark I was so happy and it was only £11! I also bought a few cushions in Primark which were £4 each and a couple of candles (they smell amazing!) which were £2/3 each. I am a massive fan of Urban Outfitters and I found these photo frames which were £6 each! I loved the colour of them and they were perfect to display the photos of my friends inside! I've really enjoyed this challenge and I'm so happy to have a room which looks that little bit more homely now!
Money Supermarket are also giving you the chance to take part in the challenge here and if you submit an entry you could be in with the chance of winning £500 B&Q Vouchers!
