New apartment

Hi, it’s been a long time hasn’t it?

Sorry but I got through another year of college, but oh yes there are summer terms…. And I just moved into my new apartment, it was a week as of yesterday! (but as of writing this I’ve been settled in for 5 months)

The current space that I’m in is a one bed, and one bath. It’s pretty big considering all I have to gauge off of is living in dorms. I’ve had my own bed for the past 3 years now and shortly after this I will be writing about that so keep an eye out!

So it’s not aesthetic yet for fall but I am getting there, I’ve gotten a couple of things but I’m more excited about decorating it for winter! I still have to get a full length mirror so I can keep doing outfit blogs instead of finding random mirrors whenever I go out.

In all honesty, I enjoy my space, it’s nice to know I have a cozy corner room that’s all my own, I have a color pallet in here that compliments any color scheme I have going forward that can be rearranged and what not. It’s mainly pinks and grays which has always been my favorite color scheme because it’s both femme and semi professional.

And that’s really all I have for right now on this and how I feel, I hope you enjoyed this and are having a good, cozy time of day where ever you are right now. I will see you guys later!

Owning a Japanese Futon

As I said last week I have had my own bed for about three years now, and by the title it’s pretty self explanatory. I did a bunch of research on it for a little bit before I actually bit the bullet an bought this. I watched a bunch of videos on what your supposed to do to take care of it, how it’s made, how the cloth for the sheet is made. I also read up on what I can do as a young women living in the city where a balcony cost extra what else my options are. It’s a Japanese full size so it’s enough for me and one other person to sleep in comfortably that I got from J-life international. I also got a floor pillow as well which I use as throw pillows when I don’t have guest over who like to sit on the floor. I do not have tatami but I’m thinking about getting it in the future, maybe not this year but soon(ish). I did however order a wooden accordion style for under the bed but that won’t be here until October-November from japan. As for right now I have a friend who gave me some memory foam mats that she used for her old dorm back when I first got the bed but now she’s living at home. And my partner can tell a difference but I can’t so yeah there’s that…

Owning this futon was a struggle at first because of living in the dorm and not having enough window space for it to actually air out. Or there was also not having anything to prop it up on so i could actually get underneath. I bought a small bed vacuum that works wonders though, it helps get all the dead skin and moisture out of the bed. With owning this bed I have noticed my posture getting better or how my spine feels when I’m sitting in my chair, its very noticable in comparison to when I didn’t have this bed. It’s also pretty easy to fold up for me in the morning and it helps me get out of bed. I just fold it into an accordion and bam then I fold up my blankets then I have a lot more space in my one bedroom!

I wouldn’t say go out and buy one right now because I can’t force you too. I wont either, it should be your decision and this is only my experience. But if your on the fence about it do more reading on it like I did because it is an investment. Anyways I hope you have a great rest of your day and I will see you all next time!!
