Updated Boho Room Tour

It took me a while to reorganize everything including placing my bed in the middle when it used to be against the wall on the side corner..i think it looks way better!! More easy breathing room, more space this way..yeah.  I love my new forest scene tapestry and my nature flower picture on canvas, I got both of these from Shein.  I've been wanting a forest tapestry since seeing it on a_little_bohohippie_home Instagram! I was super duper thrilled that I was able to find one for only $14.99! I've also organized my makeup table area but its still in progress.

Mushroom Earrings Haul

Shein earrings haul..all about those crazy groovy mushrooms!! I got 2 pairs of neon mushrooms, they are huge!! One is pink (it looks more like orange online) and the other is yellow.  I've been wanting these for quite some time when I first saw them at Marina Fini but it was too pricey (I got 2 pairs for $6.00!!).  I love my sparkly mushroom earrings a lot too, and I also like the realistic nature mushroom earrings too, a bit heavy though!

Does anyone like the new system of blogging?? Why did they have to change it?? Its taking me like forever to figure it out..its so frustrating!! Anyways, I got these groovy things in the mail recently..lovin' my patchwork bellbottoms a lot and I got a package of 90s butterfly hairclips..i was disappointed that they were small compared to the ones I got a while back from forever21 but the colours are way groovy!!

Come Sail Away


Have been reorganizing my rooms, minimizing space once again, got new stuff in the mail (will post soon), getting rid of so many stuff from the basement, bringing stuff for charity..waiting for a rainy cool day to go through closets again, its been way too hot (41 humidex!!)..relooking through all my Ikea catalogues to give me ideas for space, storage etc..watched a really great classic thriller called Never Take Candy From A Stranger (1960)..the disturbing sick guy in it was so creepy!! Highly recommend this film!! Did a bit of crafts, made these pipecleaner retro daisies and put them in my 1970s vase which I thrifted last year. The fairy b-day gift from my mom was purchased at the Earth shop before it closed down.

Shein Haul + Try On


I got my Shein order yesterday and was super thrilled with everything!!! I wasn't expecting much considering how cheap the stuff was, but I was pleasantly surprised!! I got the order all the way from China. This is a pretty good company..reminds me of the retro things I used to purchase at Forever21 or Urban Planet.  The materials are pretty good quality, its not bad really!! I got 2 pairs of earrings..big daisy ones and the square ones..very 1960s!! Retro hair stuff..love the 70s style hair combs!! Then I got a psychedelic mushroom t-shirt, the iron-on is very retro 70s!! 1960s flower power mini skirt, California Dreamin' t-shirt dress (love the color of it a lot!!), daisy print polyester shirt, and rainbow striped bellbottoms..these ones are my most favorite of the bunch!!!!

Modern Psychedelic Bands


Kula Shaker have been one of my most fav. bands for a long while!! They are from London, singer is dreamy Crispian Mills, and their music is heavily influenced by East Indian sounds. On the track Sound of Drums, you can hear The Doors style keyboard which reminds me of Light My Fire. Next up is Mystic Braves are an amazing American band from LA, and they are influenced by 60s psychedelic bands like The Seeds.  Temples are groovy psychedelic band from the UK.  Love their haunting vocals, and their videos are groovy!! Levitation Room, 60s rock with a hint of psychedelica, again from the LA area, super groovy beats!!Of course..The Babe Rainbow..love these guys loads!! They even have their own hippie bus..WOOT!WOOT! This video was taken from a 1971 documentary..Far-Out!! And last but not least, OMG!!! Where did this amazing groovy guy come from??? Lewis Floyd Henry..He reincarnated Hendrix!! Wow!!

Retro Flower


Summer daydreaming in my 70s crochet striped top, 70s sunglasses, and Jimi Hendrix guitar pick necklace.  I ordered these groovy retro flower stickers from Amazon..they were only $4.00! And they came the next day from the States..wow!! There's 10 flower cut outs in the pack.  Haven't decided where i'm gonna put them yet.  Also made homemade chocolate chip cookies..yum! It's been a very very hot and humid July so far, can't do anything much in this horrible heatwave!
