So I got the keys to my flat in September 2017 (which already feels like forever ago) and today I came across the original estate agent photos of the place, and I was so surprised by how different it looks now! These are the photos that were on RightMove and I remember when I first saw it I thought it looked okay but perhaps little bit small and in need of a make over, but other than that seemed suitable. The flat was the first (and only!) viewing that I did and although the online photos didn’t do the place…

Welcome to the next part of my new home tour! I’ve already shown you around the kitchen, bedroom, and dining room in my earlier blog posts, so now here’s the living room! This room is probably where I spend most of my spare time when I’m home. I love it because it’s so light and cosy! The large balcony doors let in lots of sunshine and I love snuggling up on our cosy sofa. I’ve been in my flat for over three months now and I’m all settled in and loving having my own place. I thought it would be…

Buying your first home is pretty scary, and one of the things that made me reluctant to start house hunting is that I thought it was going to be an almost impossible process.

The bedroom is quite small and also a bit of a funny shape, so when I first started moving my stuff in I was a bit worried about how it would all fit in and how it would be best laid out. But in the end with a lot of shuffling of things around, here it is! My bed is my happy place Firstly I can only apologise…

Sorry for my recent blogging disappearance! I’ve been so busy this month because as I mentioned in my last blog post, I’ve just bought my first home! So I’ve been busy doing it up and making it mine, and it’s now almost finished. Luckily it was in pretty good nick to begin with but it just needed a lick of paint and a few little things doing. I thought I’ll probably do a little blog post on each room (it’s only a 1 bed place!) and first of all I’d like to show you my little kitchen! For my latest…
