Confession: My bedroom isn't exactly Instagrammable. I've got wardrobe cabinets, shelves, and a chest of drawers which make my room look stuffy and suffocating. But since I find joy in taking shelfies (check out Cosmoph Beauty IG, please), I wanted to invest in items that would turn any square photo into the most #aesthetic image.
Turns out, this IG-first bedroom makeover plan isn't so expensive! I didn't have to "renovate" my whole room because the small IG square photo didn't require a 360-degree view of my space. I just upgraded everyday items which would be seen in the frame. If you're curious to find out which items I got, read on!

Acrylic bed tray
I love having breakfast in bed, and there are mornings when I enjoy working on my laptop in bed, too! Investing in this clear bed tray makes taking work IG Stories and "What I Eat In Day" pics so easy!

I love sleeping in a dark bedroom so I never saw the need for a lamp. But I realized, the incandescent glow from it adds a lovely touch to shelfies (and cat pics).

White side table
I needed an area to serve as my mini studio, so I got a small table. I could just cover it with cute kitchen towels to change its look.

White bedsheets made my Instagram life so much easier! The products pop out so well, plus it makes my skin look radiant in selfies. (Warning: White beddings are so hard to maintain! I only take them out when I need to shoot something important.)
Although it's always hot and humid in the PH, I got a duvet 'cos the cushy look is so perfect for IG. I also got duvet covers in different prints.

Natural light is still best, so I bought curtains that would let the sun in.
