So I've just moved into a new little flat in Manchester and I'm not going to lie, it was pretty basic when I arrived. It was dark and drab, but I knew I could look past it and make it as homely as possible.

I wanted to share with you some of the ways I turned a plain flat into a cute and girly home.

Being on my own, in a little dingy dark flat did not seem like something i would ever be able to get used to, so i took it upon myself to make it as bright as possible. I bought a few tall standing lamps and positioned them in dark corners of the flat and bought a shed loads of fairy lights and put them in the bedroom and the living room.

I love Yankee candles, in fact I love any type of candles to be honest and I've accumulated rather a lot recently so have spread them around my flat to make it feel that little bit warmer in these coming winter months and to spread lovely smells around the flat!

Bright Bedding
It is important to make your room feel like home so using bright colourful bedding can transform a room completely and make it feel more like "you".

Hanging Decorations
I also decided to buy cute girly hanging hearts and little signs to go around my flat. I feel like this is a good way to personalise your place and make it feel more like a home.

PicturesPictures are also a good way to make your flat personal. I like to put some of my family,and some of my friends to remind me that I'm not on my own!
