New Home Wishlist

So on Thursday I got some of the most exciting news I've received in a while; my boyfriend (James) got into his university of choice! I obviously was super pleased for him as he'd worked his arse off for the whole of the school year and he really deserved the place, I was (and still am) amazingly proud of him for getting on one of the best Chemistry courses in the country. Okay, so if that wasn't exciting enough, him getting into that university means that we are now going to be living together! James, his best friend Chris  (who is starting at my university) and myself are going to be moving down to Brighton in the next month and although I'll still be commuting to my uni, it'll be not nearly as long a journey as it was from London. I'm fairly familiar with Brighton as a place, but it will be absolutely surreal to live there but I'm soo excited to move in with my boys!

The only negative of this whole experience is finding an actual flat to live in; house hunting has been emotional. Flats are disappearing in the blink of an eye, we've had heaps of disappointing phone calls and the travelling down to Brighton is draining both financially and mentally. We have a few more viewings booked for tomorrow so fingers crossed we'll be able to work something out very soon, I'll keep y'all posted! 

Keeping positive, one of my favourite parts of my leaving the nest experience has been of course browsing for home wear! As I suspect most of you would do if you were in my shoes, I've been scouring Pinterest, home wear accessory sites and stores in search for some gorgeous home decor inspiration. We're going to be moving into an unfurnished apartment with next to no furniture, so we've (well, I have, I'm mainly going to be making these sorts of decisions!) basically got a blank canvas to create our perfect little home. 



  1. The best of luck in your new home :) I'm moving into a new student house this year too after months of searching. I'm so excited and can't wait to decorate! xx

  2. Good luck finding a flat! I hope one comes up for you :)

    Love everything you've picked, make sure you get your own way haha.
