How I Style My Room in January ❤️

It’s a new year! Hello my lovelies! 💕

My bedroom really is the centre of my life. Not to say that in an anti-social sort of way, but in a way that it’s the one place I think we can agree we feel the most calm. At least that’s where I believe we should feel most calm.

When the New Year comes around I often take it as inspiration to redecorate and freshen up my room. I want my room to be the perfect work and chill space.

I hate the feeling of taking down all the beautiful Christmas lights and being left with *ahem* much less exciting decor.

So I thought I would share how I redecorate and style my room for January, keeping the positive vibes going you could say 😛

To start out I love having new bedding! I received a new Duvet cover and pillow slips for Christmas this year, as well as a beautiful fuzzy throw blanket. It was a no brainer that my redecorating would include both.


I love pillows but I always keep myself to a maximum of 3 or 4.

Along with new bedding, I am always looking for fun new ways to decorate and store all my knick knacks. I was recently given a vintage style cake holder, and am using it to hold my perfumes (while there are no cakes to put on it)


I also tend to keep my room full of positive quotes and energy. 💕

While Christmas is over for everyone , in Canada winter is just beginning! I tend to keep around a few winter themed statement pieces, and I will keep my lights up for a bit longer.

I am a sucker for vintage decor, hence why my room has a overall very traditional feel to it.

At my desk I try and keep it clean and de-cluttered. This is where I work on my blog or just watch YouTube. I love succulents and I believe they can really add life to a room. One of my friends gave me these adorable Air Plants for Christmas and I immediately fell in love. It’s nice having that little touch of life in your room.

This is usually when I take a break from candles (meaning I’m not burning 5 at once lol) and move towards lighter scents. This is a pear and ginger scented candle by Aromabotanical. ❤️

I like my room to be as organized and peaceful as my mindset going into the New Year. It’s a tacky saying (I know), but I honestly live by it!

I hope everyone is having a tranquil new year so far!

My Favourite Red Lipsticks for Christmas 💄

Who doesn’t love a red lip?

Red lipstick looks good on every shade of skin and tone. Finding the perfect red lipstick can be as good as finding chocolate in your stocking! :p

And with the list going on of all the amazing drugstore brand lipsticks, you can find the perfect one without sacrificing your wallet this Christmas.

The swatches match the photos from right to left 😘💋

Starting off with the Revlon Colour Stay Moisture Stain: I have purchased 3 of these over all, and have used all of them religiously. Upon first application the texture is light and airy, but glossy and full of pigment. For someone who is strictly a matte lip kinda gal, this really says something. This is a more expensive drugstore item but worth it for the double feature of a lipstick and a lip stain. Here I have the shades Miami Fever and Shanghai Sizzle. Next sticking with the theme of glossy red lips I love the NYX Xtreme Shine Lip Cream in the shade Absolute Red. This is a high gloss, high pigment lipstick for that perfect Marilyn Monroe pout. My pointer, invent in a good lip liner to avoid and bleeding lines. 💋

I have 2 NYX Matte Lipsticks that are ride or die in my makeup bag Indie Flick and Merlot. Indie Flick is and orange red and is vibrant and bright for the holidays, where Merlot has shades of purple in it, perfect for sultry winter evenings. Both are True Matte Lipsticks, semi dry down, without drying out your lips.

Rimmel Kate Moss in Shade 10: This lipstick was highly influenced by my favourite Youtuber/blogger Zoella, who swears by this lipstick and so do I. This particular shade is the most classic red in my mind and when used with a lipliner and brush, you can create the most precise red lip, for a low price.

Last but not least is the highest priced lip to from Ciate London in the shade Diva. This is a mousse lipstick and half drys down on the lips. I’ve spoken about this before, and while it’s not a true Matte, the texture it creates is worth the few smudges here and there. Plus I have to shoutout to the applicator for being a perfect doe-foot applicator for a red lip on the go!

I hope everyone had been enjoying their lead up to the holidays! Happy (almost) Holidays everyone!
