Where the magic/tragic happens... Kathy B HQ!

Good evening beauties! I have been thinking about publishing some photographs of my humble abode for a while now, mainly because I know us bloggerfolk love a good old-fashioned snoop around each other's dwellings, but also because I have just purchased one hell of a funky candle, and wanted you all to see it in action. Granted, I need to get out more.

Today, alongside jiggling my planet-sized booty to some fiercely enjoyable Reggae (gimme hope Joanna, hope Joanna, give me hope Joanna, 'fore the morning come...Tune!), I decided to blitz my floordrobe, do some extreme hoovering, and release my (very) inner domestic Goddess. I think it worked, but I'll let you be the judge of that. Ladies and gents, I give you, Kathy B HQ, aka the bedroom in which I blog, slob, hoop, wiggle, jiggle, sing, chuckle, laze, gaze, and do the Macarena naked .

Oh how I love my bed. It is the most seductive thing in the entire world on a Sunday morning. 
(If we don't count a very naked Ryan Reynolds, of course).

Once upon a time (aka today), my zebra-printed socks failed me, and I slipped upon that fine wooden floor like a flailing donkey. Wild.

Got me this funky, yeasty canvas, and a quirky card. I like putting quirky cards on my walls. 

This is where I contemplate the universe, get my scrawlin' on, smile like a stalker at Dobby, and pile up my antique books. The wall around the memo board will soon be completely covered in inspiration!

I love me some funky, quirky art. The print on the left was created by a very talented Luke many a fine year ago, and the piece to the right was drawn for me by my incredibly arty/wonderful best friend. I love Big Ben. A giant clock?! WOWZER.

I have come to the conclusion that this is the BEST candle in the entire world. My whole room smells of cookies. Mmm, biscuity goodness.

Bracelets and earrings and flowers and bells. And a little, golden rocking horse. Don't tell anybody, but the rocking horse opens in half. That's where I store my secrets. Rocking horse bonkerism.

This is why I'm not a florist! But look at the cheeky little owl, and the cute little birdie. Awww!


'Trying-to-make-myself-look-less-like-Shrek' central. My hairdryer looks a bit like a zebra. Happy days.

Guitar and bookshelf. Don't laugh at the snoozing monkey. I've had him since I was 2ft tall, and though he doesn't share my bed anymore, he has to stay. Love me the pink-nosed monkey.

My beloved hobo clown. He forever makes me smile.

This is me in animal form. Oink, oink!

My wonky-railed wardrobe. I spend endless hours slobbing around in that heart-printed dressing gown, looking all unsexy and walrus-like. Bigtime fashionista, me....

AMEN.



So there we have it folks! What do you think of my humble abode? Was it the kind of room you'd expected I would have, or did you expect me to be rolling round in a trough somewhere?! Have you done a similar post? If so, please do pop a link below. I love a bit of quality snooping!

Happy Sunday!


xXx

    1. I am a HUGE earring and bracelet fiend, it's quite ridiculous! They don't usually look so neat... I tend to find them all over the place. Aka on the floor/in my bed. Oops.

      Ooh, good old Superdrug! ;) Xx

  6. I'm really enjoying this little peek at your room. I'm envious of your book collection and the desk space area you have in general. Your make up/ beautifying area is so darn organised! I love collecting cards as well, except cards people give me and have written in. I just can't throw them out. I should probs do something nice with them like you have xxxx

    1. Aw thank you! :) It is ridiculously tidy/organised at the moment, but usually I like some kind of wild beast, I promise. Yes, I love putting them up on the wall/pinning them to my clip board! Always there for a read when I'm feeling glum! xXx

  8. I loved this little peek at your room. I feel so intimate now. It's like a whole new stage in our relationship. AHAH! ;)

    Anyway, I am pleased to see that we have some hair products and books in common (is The Night Before Christmas any good? It's been on my bookshelf for ages, next to all the other books I bought but didn't read...)

    I like your desk, your bed seems really comfy, and I love the fact that your guitar is on a pile of Cosmo magazines -do you play then?

    1. Haha aww thank you! :) You're more than welcome to come and get cosy with me any time you like, my delicious Frenchy!

      The Night Before Christmas is BRILLIANT! I loved it, and found myself addicted/in love with fine, fictional menfolk. Make sure you read it this December, or I will hunt you down!!

      I do play, yes! And by play, I mean attempt to play and fail quite miserably.... One day I shall improve I hope! Xx

    1. WAHOO. Come round right this instant! I will even throw on my finest pyjamas for you, like the sexy beast that I am.

      Thank you so very much! :) You're right, it is very me, and apart from a few more tweaks/final purchases, it's almost exactly how I want it!

      The bed was only £65 I think... Bargain hunt, anyone?!! If you want a link, I'm more than happy to email it to you! :) (The link that is, not the bed...)

  11. Love this post and I bloody LOVE your room! Silky satin sheets! All great writers have them! (I made that up but I have silky satin sheets too and I like to think I'm okay at it ha!) Your hobo clown reminds me of the scary train ghost in sexual Patrick Swayze's movie Ghost! Your room is so funky!
