This post is something a little different from usual. Today I decided that I want to write about my safe place, my bed. This is probably somewhere a lot of people call their safe place and you might have the same reasons as I do for deciding on this place.
Everyone has a safe place, somewhere that they go to when they don’t feel at their best, feel poorly or like myself are feeling rather anxious a tad too often and just want somewhere familiar they can go to and be themselves without any worry.
I love my bed, I always have but over the past year I’ve loved it more than ever and without it, I’d be pretty screwed.
Whenever I’m at home I’ll be sat in my bed on my laptop doing some writing with the covers over my legs to keep me warm, or snuggled up inside my bed with the blankets over my head watching YouTube videos or reading blog posts on my iPhone.
I don’t have a desk in my room and the only place I really have to sit is either on the floor or in my bed and as the latter is more comfortable, I always choose that one.
Before work I’ll wake up early just so I can lie in my bed and watch YouTube videos and read blog posts. That may sound really lazy and sad to most but to me staying in my bed is just something I enjoy doing. I don’t really sit with my family and talk about life and such, we all like to be on our own to do our own things, only really talking to one another if we need to be in the same room at any time. This sounds really bad, I know but it’s the way we live and I suppose we’re all happy that way.
When I come home from work, my boyfriends, or from being out with friends I’ll come straight up to my room. I don’t get into bed straight away but let’s say half an hour after arriving home, I’ll be in my pajamas and tucked into bed doing something, more than likely related to my blog.
On my days off I won’t budge from my bed unless I have to, as I’ll usually spend most of my day writing for my blog, which is what I spend most of my time doing towards the end of October and the same will go for this month due to NaNoWriMo. As you can see I have my favourite picture (to date) of my boyfriend and I as my wallpaper. I’ve never really done this before with previous relationships, not even friends so it’s nice to see us both looking so happy whenever I turn my laptop on. I need to get this picture printed off soon, as I just love it so much, it makes me really happy.
I’ll settle down with all the things I need, my iPhone, some lip balm which at the moment is Vaseline’s Paint The Town Red Lip Tint (review here) and a notebook. I love notebooks and I have so many of them for different things. My notebook was a present bought for me by my boyfriend. It’s by Gemma Correll’s greeting cards and gift products called Pickle Parade and has her Pugs Not Drugs design on the front. I use it to write good things down in so I can look back over them when I’m feeling crappy. It’s my favourite notebook by far, mostly because my boyfriend bought it for me and plus I love the design. I use my pink BIC pen when I write inside of it, as it looks nice alongside the blue and white colours of the notebook itself.
Since getting my iPhone in September I love it so much and anyone who claims that they’re rubbish, has clearly never owned an iPhone! In a way I wish I could have got the iPhone 5s, as I have the 5 but I needed a new phone desperately and either way I love this. I use it for Bloglovin’ and it’s great to read posts when I’m traveling anywhere. I use it to organise blog posts and what I intend to write about and such. It’s a great little device and I love my old skool Gameboy case for it too, which I snapped up on eBay for just 99p!
These are the newest edition to my bedroom, my bed sheets. I bought them in October and they’re by Fearne Cotton. Not only does she design clothes for Very, but now she’s designing pieces for your home too and I love everything she has designed so far! I picked these bed covers up in the sale after eying them up since May so I’m glad I finally have them on my bed now. They’re really soft and cozy to wrap yourself up in on cold days and a pleasure to snuggle in whenever I’m writing.
This being said, I wouldn’t say they’re my favourite bed sheets but they’re definitely a treat to put on my bed as they’re different to my usual black and white bed sheets.
I usually have loads of pillows on my bed but I haven’t been as bothered to have them all on there as much as I used to, so I just have my favourite 101 Dalmatians pillow on there from the Disney Store. This pillow is so comfortable to rest on and it’s really soft and squishy too. It’s probably meant to be for a child, but I don’t care, I love 101 Dalmatians!
Although I love my bed, I’m wanting a double bed now. My boyfriend and I struggle to sleep when he stays over at mine due to not much room in a single for two people… Two people who take up a lot of room in a double bed, let alone a single! This being said my room isn’t the largest in the world and for me to have a double bed, would mean a lot less room for me to move around in here, which I don’t have with a single now as it is! But we shall see…
Finally as you can see next to my bed I have a little picture wall against my wardrobe and it goes all the way up, this pictures only got a couple of them in this picture. Since my boyfriend and I got together in June, I’ve since put two pictures of us both up on my photo wall, a place only my best and closest friends are put up on, as well as family. The first picture I ever saw of my boyfriend is one of him in a suit, I thought he looked gorgeous and I’m so glad he messaged me on the website we met on. The picture above it is one of my favourite pictures. One evening before I headed home from his we took some pictures together and this was one of them. I have some more pictures of my boyfriend and I to pop up on my photo wall, including the one I have on my laptop.
I love my bed so much and although this post is rather random, I came up with the idea a few days after putting my new bed sheets on and snuggling up inside of them.
Does anyone else love their bed as much as I do? Please let me know if you do.
This is definitely my safe place for life and I’m pretty sure if I get a double bed in the near future, that will just be as safe feeling as this one.
Until next time, take care all and i hope you enjoyed this post.
