Refreshing Your Bedroom for Spring

Apr 04, 2014

It’s officially spring which means it is time to say goodbye to dark colors and hello to brights and neons. Your wardrobe isn’t the only thing that needs to be freshened up this season. Why not give your bedroom some extra love with a few easy and affordable updates!

Patterned Sheets

Bed sheets are a quick way to add a pop of color or a fun pattern. Choose a set that matches your current duvet or main blanket.

Invest in some new pillows or throw cushions to add extra comfort to your bed. Buy them in a few different sizes and your friends can even use them to lounge on the floor.

Want your bedroom to smell as good as it looks? Add a few scented candles and you’ll be drifting asleep to the smells of cupcakes, cotton candy or sweet flowers.

Picture Frames

Print off a handful of photos of you and your friends and family. Then create a photo wall with a bunch of mismatched frames or grab a frame set that already groups them together.

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
