*RoomDecor* - A work in progress !

Hey everyone!

I'm super tired today and with pain in every single bone in my body, but for a good cause!

I moved into my mother's house since a couple of months ago (for unemployment reasons) and since then, I've been trying to make my new room cozy and comfortable for me and my boyfriend, but it's beeing very hard!
This room it's pretty small so there's not much space for storage, and also, I don't have spare money to buy anything for decorating it or bettering it, so I had to reutilize things that I already had, have some imagination and try my best till I have the possibility to make it the way I really want it to be.

 This all happened after watching a room tour on YouTube...
I've been changing things all the time, actually, I moved my bed 4 times since I'm here, so I guess I'll never be 100% satisfied with it ahah

But I think that now I'm starting to realize what direction I really want to go with my room decor : )

I'm going towards the "Earthy" theme!
Green, brown, copper, gold and white are the main colors.

I' going to show you first a photo where you can see a little of what my room looked like before I moved everything today!

You can't see much, but you'll now see how different it is :)
Please remember, *still working on it*

Here's a picture I took while squeezing myself between a wall and my wardrobe.
As you can see, it's a tiny little room, but I like it : ) 

A photo from the other corner...

My boyfriend's bedside table.
Nothing much to talk about...just a few cats and a little mouse that I put there because I have too many of them, I love this little decoration animals ^.^

And now my bedside table, with no lamp still ahah
My mother is the author of that painting  (it had to have a cat on it!)

Now, a close up of my side...
Two cats, one wooden box, jewelry holder, phone, and two candles!
That circular green thing on the left it's actually the cover I had on my bed before...now it's serving as a cover for a traveling trolley bag, making it a perfect purse stand : D

So, I had a problem...My bed doesn't have a "head", and I didn't like how naked my room felt because of that so, as you can tell, I used a courtin to make one.
It's not the most perfect thing in the world, but it works for now!

I had to move this armoire to the opposite wall by my own!
Imagine this, tiny space, full of junk, a bed and a armoire on opposite sides, and moving them little by little at the same time so I wouldn't be stuck between them nor making some kind of disaster...
It was tuff! 

Here's the little corner of mess...
I have to work on this soo much!

So here I have my earring holder on a little stool and 2 stacked boxes on the right, covered by a blanket that was on my bed as well, and a trash can hiding on the corner.

Here is my boyfriend's shoes on a thing that was used as a potato basket in the past ahah
I had to use my imagination a pick up as much things as I could to make this a practical space : D

Green curtains...

My green fuzzy rug that I love so much!

And a stander chocolate brown rug that's on my side.

Finally, our lamp shade, also green : )

That's it for today : )

Tell me what you think of my room so far!
I think I'm gonna keep on posting updates on what I do around my room decor ^^

Hope you liked it!

*.* I ❤ Fall *.* TAG !

Hey guys!

Today while I was commenting on some blogs that I follow, I came across one that had a "I <3 Fall" TAG, and I really liked it : )
I've seen many YouTubers doing this, but never saw a blogger doing one, so I thought I would do it to!

Hope you like it ^.^

Favorite Fall Lip Color
Maybelline's Moisture Whip Lipstick in Cherry Brown
* I made a blog post called "My lipsticks for Fall" where you can see what it looks like on *
Link here!

Favorite Fall Nail Polish
OPI Into The Night

Favorite Fall Drink (none Starbucks, because I don't have one here)
Any kind of really hot tea it's perfect for me : )
But I really enjoy Lipton's White Tea With Blueberry & Pomegranate

Favorite Fall Candle
I love Vanilla and Cinnamon scented candles : )
So any candle with one of those scents it's a love affair for me ahah
This one is Bath and Body Work's Vanilla Snowflake

Favorite Fall Scarf or Accessory
If you've been following me since I started, you probably already know that what I love to wear on Fall are jackets.
Jackets jackets jackets!
They can be made out of denim, knit, faux leather, whatever, it just need to be a jacket ahah
You can check my blog post on jackets here!

Haunted House, Haunted Hayride or Haunted Corn Maze?
Haunted House hands down!
I'm a pretty curious person, so when someone tells a scary story about a house, I have to check it out (if it's near me of course).
The majority of the times of pretty freaked out a almost peeing myself, but when you're curious like me, nothing stops you ahah

Favorite Halloween Movie
Here in Portugal we don't celebrate Halloween as much as I would like, so I don't really see this movie specifically on that day, however I love it, and I think it's appropriate for this festivity : )
Corpse Bride by Tim Burton (love this man!)

Favorite Candy to Eat on Halloween
I really wouldn't need a special day to eat candy, however, I can't eat the majority of the things that I love...
Sneakers, Kit Kat and M&M's are my favorite, but can't eat those so I have to stick on Gummy Bears ^.^

What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
As I mentioned earlier, here we don't celebrate it, so I won't dress up.
But if I did, I would totally be Emily from the "Corpse Bride" : D
(as you can tell I really love this movie)

What is your favorite thing about Fall?
Everything! The leaves turning colors and falling, hearing the rain, the crazy amount of  clothing layers, hot drinks while seeing movies...For me, Fall would last all year : D

Well, that's it guys : )
Hope you enjoyed my Fall Tag!
I tag all of you! Would love to see what's your favorites for this season : D

OOTD - In a dress mood

Hey guys!

Lately I've been in a dress kick as you can tell.

I know that I'm certainly not the most elegant girl in the world, that this type of look would probably be better on other people, and that I have pretty stubby legs, but I've already embraced all that and my *full  size'ness* too.

I'm still gonna rock dresses the best I can, show some leg, show some curves and not be embarrassed by it because I've already wasted so many precious years of my life being ashamed  of what I looked, and now it's time to change!

Hope you like it : )

*PreciousGems* - Styling mama's dress

Hey guys!

Today, while I was searching for a sweater to wear, I discovered in my mother's closet some pieces that she used to wear when I was little and that at that time I always loved how she looked in them, so now, that I can actually fit in them (since I'm not too little anymore) I thought I would try them and see how I look in them.

I think I'm gonna start a series here based on what I find at her closet that she used to wear ages ago but that  I can still style it these days... What do you think? : )

The first piece that I'm gonna show you today it's something that she used to wear for work or going out for dinner.

It's a grey fitted dress, knee-length, with thin lighter grey stripes that provides a longer a slimming silhouette.

Hope you like it : )

And please, go hunt your mother's closet too! You might be able to find some precious gems in there : )
