How To Decorate Your Home for Christmas On A Budget

Hey my loves,

in today’s blog post I am going to talk about decorating your appartment on a budget. As a College student, money is tight and you do not have as much money as you would like to spend on decorations, so in order to get your Christmas dream you have to get creative.

Christmas Decor Ideas

I have created a Pinterest board with some ideas!


I’m also sharing one DIY with you, as well as some tips and tricks that I like to use in order to make my living room a magical place.

DIY Window Ornaments

All you need for this DIY are some different sizes and shapes of ornaments. I went into two of my local dollar stores and picket up two different kind of silver ornaments, as well a some star ornaments. You will also need some gift wrapping ribbons. I found these colorful ones on Amazon: Ribbons

Now you just need to measure out the ribbon into different lengths, so that you get sort of like a teardrop effect and put the ribbon trough the holes from the ornaments and tie them around your curtain rail in the order you want. All in all I think I’ve spent about 8 bucks on my entire window creation and I love it so much.

Tips & Tricks

I personally shop my decorations in local dollar stores and at cheaper alternative stores, so that I save a couple of bucks and do no get tempted to buy expensive decor. I also make sure to check out any sale actions of my local stores. But, I think for the most magical decoration lightning and music is the key. So, I always make sure to dig out my fairy lights, candles and listen to a lot of Christmas music. My current favorite playlist is the pre-made one by Spotify: Christmas Hits

What are some of your decorations tips? Tell me in the comments, I would love to know. 

I wish you all a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.

My Summer Playlist

Hey my loves,

today I am sharing with you my summer hits for 2018. Yesterday I spent the day at a lake with one of my closest friends and we had such a nice time and ride there. We listened in the car, as well as at the lake to my favorites from this summer.

My Top 3 songs are:

Ariane Grande – God is a woman

This song is so good, I sometimes wakeup and have it in my ear without even hearing the song. I don’t follow her music much, but this one I love.

iiola – sickly sweet

By far my favorite this summer, heard this on my long train rides to College and it’s just a beautiful song in general. Really love it!

LANY – Thru These Tears

Love this one! I just love a lot that LANY does and I absolutely fell in love with this one when I heard it.

What are some of your summer favorites this year? Let me know, always open to new suggestions.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.
