An Exciting Life Update


We finally got the keys to our beautiful home almost two weeks ago but it's been non-stop ever since & due to a lack of Internet my blog has been left very unloved recently! I've got two days off now so I'm taking advantage of my free time & getting back into blogging - one of my favourite things to do! I'm using my iPhone as a hotspot because I couldn't wait any longer to login to blogger & get a post written up, we should have proper Internet soon though.

The house itself is situated in Liverpool which meant a big move for Dom, Tilly & myself but a very exciting move nonetheless! I've been craving city life ever since I left London two years ago & we've managed to get the best of both worlds with two beautiful parks nearby yet we are only about 10 minutes away from the city centre. We need to do a bit of work on the house, get some damp fixed, redecorate most of the rooms & generally make it our own so it's going to take time but we have already made a good start! Our bedroom will be the first room to be completed, it's all decorated now we just need to decide on a few more pieces of furniture & get some curtains hung up! We are currently sleeping in the back bedroom with a bedsheet acting as a curtain, but we have the comfiest bed ever so we are good for now! (little bit of advice, if you're gonna splurge on one thing make sure it's a mattress - you spend about half your life on it so it's a worthwhile investment!) It's such an exciting time for us, even buying 'boring grown up things' like a washing machine & fridge was fun, I think I'm officially old!! We have so much more to buy though, I'm currently having a dilemma over which sofa to go for, I'm scared I'll be stuck with a sofa that I'll end up hating & it's such an expensive mistake to make... send over any sofa shopping tips before I have a breakdown over swatches & styles!

We are already so so so happy in our new home, it feels good to finally have our own space again after waiting almost a year & I'm excited to document our home & share updates with you all as we make progress!

p.s I share some sneak peaks of our new home on Instagram if you want to take a look - @loulabeth & there will be loads more to come over the weekend! (:

  1. Congratulations on the move, so glad it went well. The worst thing about moving is the lack of the internet though. Looking forward to your updates. :-)
