TSABD at Home: My Scandinavian Bedroom

After months (well, years if you count the time I did nothing…lol) of purging, building, painting, pinning, shopping, and moving furniture, my bedroom is FINALLY done. I’ve talked about the process in previous posts so if you’re lost and want to catch up, check out my previous TSABD at Home posts here.

TSABD at Home: How to Purge Your Home & Free Yourself of Excess

When you look at all you’ve accumulated and think “What have I done?”

I’ve always advocated for routine closet purges—they do amazing things not only for your wardrobe but also your wallet. I swear if you feel like you’re constantly shopping despite having a ton of stuff, a good purge will set you straight. Think about it—going through all the stuff you’ve bought that you don’t wear, doesn’t fit, no longer suits your style, etc. that you paid your hard-earned money for. It REALLY makes you consider any new purchases much more closely. Now, I’m not saying you shouldn’t ever buy anything again ever (hello, this *IS* a fashion and beauty blog), but you’ll be more aware of your purchase process and happier with your purchase decisions because you’ll buy things that are really for you and suit your lifestyle.

TSABD at Home: Recent Purchases & Additions for My Bedroom

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’ve been on a roll this year with trying to get this apartment together. I’ve come A LONG way but still have a long way to go as well. My bedroom for one did a complete 180. I purged SO MUCH STUFF, got the floors done, painted it in a bright white shade (which is AMAZING both day and night), got new furniture, and added some other decor items to give it what I call a “Scandinavian-Trinidadian” feel…lol.

One of the MAJOR Things I Love About My 30s

Talk about confidence—I took this picture on a busy street in Harlem on a Saturday on a January day without flinching…lol

Listen, I hate to gloat about this being in your 30s thing, but gurl…IT. IS. LIT. And from what I hear from my friends who are 40+, it just keeps getting better and better. Like seriously, I wish I knew how amazing my 30s would be when I was in my teens and my 20s. I’d like to think I wouldn’t have taken myself as seriously. Sure, things aren’t all roses in this decade—things like hormonal acne, body aches, and facial hair can throw a monkey wrench in one’s game, but the confidence? My confidence game is through the roof!

So I’m in the process of slowly (VERY slowly) redecorating my apartment. The last two weeks I’ve been purging and repurposing things like crazy. I’m slowly trying to transition into the minimalism life, which is hard because I come from living a life of loving many things…lol. But minimalism is the life for me and aspects of it have helped me to reduce my spending on clothes and makeup. I just need to be able to calm down and learn to appreciate things without needing to own them.
