Just a few things for my room...

Hey all, I'm taking the easy way out again. And rather than sort through the massive pile of pictures I have waiting for my other blog posts, I'm just going to write another quick one.
Sorry. I'll get there I promise.
I got some cute stuff for my room recently and I thought I would share.

I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and found the jewelry tree and I got the vase, flowers (fake) and bamboo (real) from Ikea! :) 

I'll start with the vase, which I believe was like $2 or something ridiculously cheap like that. I just wanted to have something pretty in my room and I loved the colour of this vase. In case the picture doesn't show it, it's a bright pink! I cannot stand the sight or smell or dead flowers. I love real flowers when they're alive, but as soon as they start turning brown I want to throw them out. So rather than spend a ton on real flowers for my vase every two weeks, I got two fake flowers, also from Ikea for like $1 a piece or something. But, I did want a little vegetation  in my room  (I mean spring is coming soon, isn't it?) so I got bamboo (again, Ikea) to put in the vase. It's super low maintenance, looks great and only cost about $4.
I also got an AMAZING standing coat rack at Ikea to store my 348578957 purses. And it looks awesome. I may do a post on it soon. And I also got a cork board, which I have yet to hang, sadly.

Oh hey look, it's my boytoy in the frame. 
Oh, I just love this thing so much. My jewelry tree! Not only is this really pretty, a great way to store jewelry, and reasonably cheap ($20) it has also forced me to take better care of my necklaces. I used to store my stuff in a jewelry case and when I got home from school or wherever I was, I would just take off my necklaces and toss them in the case. More often than not, the next time I wanted to wear it, it would be tangled with 15 other necklaces. Because this tree looks really good when there's jewelry all over it, it means every time I wear something now, I take it off, reclasp the necklace and hang it back on the tree! 

Not to mention I love storing watches, bracelets, cuffs, rings (so many rings) and apparently silly bands (the pink things) in this little bowl at the bottom. I really love this picture. 

Anyhoo, hope you enjoyed reading!
Thanks- Tash <3
