Monday, Monday

In the summer, Mondays never seem as harsh as they do in the winter... so, let's celebrate this Monday with the winner of the $50 Swim Spot giveaway! Drumroll please.... 

Candace Nicole! Congratulations, Candace! 

No worries if you didn't win, because there is lots more fun scheduled in the coming weeks! 
 Now onto the real business for this Monday. I have been working really hard to get my room back into "shape". I've been weeding out old dorm room accessories and things that my new "big girl" life doesn't need. With the said, I still have a TON of stuff-- it really is incredible what you can rack up in just 4 years... 

So I have been toying with different layouts, playing with colors and just getting rid of all of my unnecessary stuff. Needless to say, it is a job in itself. But I am so happy that I finally found the perfect bedding! I found it at Pottery Barn Kids (OK, not very adult, but I swear it's perfect). 
I originally wanted a navy blue/white color combo, however, a navy blue/white bedding is apparently super hard to come by. So I went with the second best combo, pink and green. I'm very particular about sheets so taking into account my sheet preferences I was a bit limited in selection. 

This is the bedding that I went with. It's simple and girly but without looking too childish (all pictures from this post are from Google images...I'll post my pics when everything is all set up and looking good). 

Isn't it great?! It looks a lot paler in real life-- it's almost a neutral pink and the plaid is a lot less prominent. I didn't like the shams because I thought it was a little too matchy-matchy for my taste so I went with yellow gingham sheets and pillows. 

I am obsessed with the gingham sheets and love how they brighten up the entire bedding. Plus, I totally forgot and didn't realize that I already had my green down comforter from school which matches perfectly with the green in the plaid.

Now that my my bed is all taken care of, all I need to do is add the finishing touches! Do you have any decorating tips to share? Have a fabulous day!

I really like that you didn't go with the matching pillow cases, I think it makes the bedding that much more your own! I don't have any actual decorating tips but I always like having things that are important to me like family pictures, my favourite books etc by my bed, I feel like it makes everything more cozy!


YAY!! I won! So excited. Thank you so much. My email is
