Uni room tour

So I thought today I'd do a little tour of my teenie, but cosy, room at university. I've added all of my own personal touches, and the room is painted a lovely bright yellow to make it look bigger. My desk is downstairs (under the stairs - I feel like Harry Potter), which is nice because it means I can separate work from sleep and relaxing.

Clamp Light - IKEA

The clip-on light is really useful for small rooms as it doesn't take up any space, and you don't need a side table to put it on. It's also really bright and useful for reading in the evenings. See my review of the Yankee Candle electric melt warmer here.

You really can do up spaces quite cheaply - Primark, B&M Bargains and Home Bargains all do nice homeware for small prices. I find that adding a few cushions and blankets in different colours add cosiness to a room, and fairy lights make it a lovely atmosphere in the evenings. I absolutely love interior design; if I wasn't doing medicine I would really consider doing it as a job.

Today has been another long day of lectures and workshops. I'm going to spend my evening eating pizza and watching Gravity, and probably catching up on my sleep.
