Personalising your space with Fairy Lights

Many of you will be moving this month, some to uni, some with friends, some with a partner. I know that when you get that place of your own, no matter how big or small you want to make it feel like home. This time of year it is especially important to love your surroundings because as it gets colder we're naturally favouring nights in binging on Netflix over nights out in the cold. It's the time of year for cosy blankets, scented candles and cups of tea.  

The problem with furnishing a room and is that it can be costly and I don't know about you but with the lead up to Christmas I don't have spare cash to spend on redecorating. Lighting can make such an impact, fairy lights are so cheap and they can make a huge difference to the feel of a room. 


The great thing is you don't have to be too precise or spend a lot of time at all.
Simply wrapping them around a mirror can look really pretty - and is a great way to spice up those OOTD pics too!  Don't stop there, drape them over anything, around your vanity table, your shelves, your frames -go nuts! 

Pinning photos along a spring of lights looks great. you can buy some little pegs (there's loads of cheap ones around at Christmas time to hang your cards) or even use some cute washi tape which costs next to nothing.


I've always had copper lights wrapped around my bed. The copper wire makes them easy to bend into the shape I want them to and they look really pretty.  Mine have a remote so I can dim them or make them twinkle of the mood takes me. It makes snuggling up and reading a book even more cosy. 


Another really simple way to revamp your room is to line the walls with small lights. My little office corner looks so cute at the moment. I'm tempted to buy another set to wrap around my frames too. You don't just have to go for golden lights, this is a great way to add a bit of colour too. 

We were given some Mason jars when Mason was born and I filled one with some battery operated lights which is so simple but looks really cute and magical. This would also look great inside a lantern for some Peter Pan vibes. You could be really creative and add a little toy fairy if these were in a kids room.
