snug as a bug



Just gonna leave this picture of my new bed and new quilt here so you can all be jealous! I've had the bed up for almost a fortnight but the duvet set has only just been washed! I'm so in love with it, and I think I must look like an IKEA addict as nearly everything you see here comes from there! If anyone wanted to know, I got the flower garland from eBay. I was going to get some fairy lights but these are better for the environment and won't run out! Win win situation, oui?

Was flicking through the Sky Anytime offerings the other night at a ridiculous hour, and watched Moulin Rouge! which means I'm obsessed over it all over again. I go through phases of listening to nothing but the soundtrack, three guesses why I re-downloaded Spotify again! I don't know why, but I totally want a tragic love experience like that of Satine and Christian. Even if it means being the star courtesan and dying of TB. She did get to live in an elephant though. Dreamy!

Naturally I'm at home on a Saturday night. I got the contraceptive implant put in yesterday. I've bruised like a peach and am being a complete girl about it! It feels like there's a screw under my skin even though it just looks like a lollipop stick from what I can tell? I should probably stop touching it anyway. The perks of being a girl! Anyone else got one? What do you think of it?

  6. My doctor keeps recommending it to me I can't make up my mind. Is it uncomfertable? I love the bedspread and the garland so gorgeous x

  8. you bedspread reminds me of my new one! mine is just like yours, but black and white.

    my best friend has that implant; it works too, but can be annoying apparently. hope you become less sore!

  9. Thats a really nice duvet, and beautiful garland as well. My bedroom is tiny but I try and work with the space I've got, so I think a little de cluttering is in order :D

  10. Love the whole set up of your bed/garland/duvet, I wish mine would look like that!
    You're so brave having the implant! x

  11. Your bedroom is so pretty! I love the flower garland, I might take a leaf out of your book and pretty up my bed with nice bedding and decor. Hope you feel better soon! xx

  12. I love your IKEA bedroom and the garland is very eco-friendly and cute!

    I would definitely paint the flowers on it different colours :)

  13. It looks cute! I have the same bed frame too. It is just way to beautiful to not buy, don't you think?
    I like your pink walls so fun!

  14. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but for me, and loads of my friends, the implant is terrible! I had mine for 3 years and only recently got it took out. At first its fantastic cause you don't need to worry about taking the pill on a daily basis but over time everyone I know gets bad side affects.
    Slowly but surely you gain weight not a stone over night just gradual. My skin was really bad and is only just clearing up (ahem... facial hair is apparently a very common side effect *blush*) The final straw for me was that I kept on feeling down when I had nothing to be sad about- doctor took me off implant and I changed back to my happy go lucky self overnight.

    Sorry to be so pessimistic, hope none of that happens to you. And yeah its a really weird feeling when its in your arm. x

  15. Your bed looks so comfy!! Love the sheets too.

    I've had the implant and I had it taken out after 6 months as it didn't work for me at all :( After a few months I began to feel really low for no reason. I also had a couple other side effects which I couldn't put up with so I had it taken out, despite the nurse urging me to try it for a year at last. After I had it taken out everything went back to normal and I felt fine again :)

    I've heard mixed reviews about it and if it works then it's amazing. It really depends on the individual, it's different for every girl. I hope you have success with it, especially after bruising so bad ;)

  16. Wow, I love the look of your bed (: I adore the duvet and the frame is so nice. I wish I could have something this girly and nice. Ooh, good luck with your implant. I've always been curious about other forms of contraception but I'm not sure :/

    ReplyDelete
  17. I had the implant removed after 6 months. I had some side effects that I was over dealing with. My friend got one and hers is brilliant. So I guess it really depends on each person and what your body does with it. Hope it is all good for you :)

  18. oof, nice bed! i'm wondering about the impant - would you recommend? thinking of getting it. added you on twitter too (as minielle) :) x

  19. What a cute bedspread! I love it <3

    I hope the implant works for you. I'd never really feel comfortable with having something implanted in my skin... I'll stick with the pill :)

  24. I have the same Ikea bed! Mine looks a little different though because I have a huge mattress and box spring, so it's extremely tall!

    Very cute with the garland.

  25. ah, me and my housemates watched the episode of 'the joys of teen sex' where the girl gets an implant. my friend had to leave the room after threatening to be sick... I hope it was all good and easy for you though!
    I love your bed, I have a similar style of bed but I have fairy lights and birds and such. All ethereal.

  37. Your room looks so beautiful. I've yet to have an opportunity to customize my own room! Lucky you!

    The contraceptive implant scares me. It's really strange to think of something under the skin that you can feel. Eeeeee!

    ReplyDelete
  38. aww your bed looks gorgeous! I would love to have a bed and duvet like that but it's too girly for my boyfriend! The perils of living with a boy!! Ooh good luck with the implant, I don't know if I could go through with it, but I've heard good things about it :) x

  42. I am really trying not to be a downer here but 2ish weeks ago it was all over the news that over 100 women in the UK have become pregnant while having the implant so be careful. Anys love you blog and your room <3 x

  48. I WISH I could fit a bed like that into my tiny room. Dream bed, looks so cosy with your laptop jealousss. Hope your arm feels better soon, I've heard you can feel very tender when you've first had it put in x

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm jealous of your bravery! I'm too much of a wimp for the implant, it's not the getting it put in that scares me it's them ripping it out (ok they probably don't actually rip it out but that's what imprinted into my brain)

    ReplyDelete
  50. ahh, i found your blog a couple of weeks ago and really liked it but i forgot the name and wasn't able to find it anymore but luckily i found you again today! yay. lovely blogggg x
