H O M E

Hey guys, here's a snippet of what our apartment looks like. Lots more pictures will come, trust me, but this is what I've got to share with you for now.

I'm at this moment sitting on the couch with a glass of white wine, trying to find a new job. The visa I'm on now does not allow me to work for the same company for more than 6 months, soo.... Here I am, 6 months in, forced to leave. Yeah, it sucks. But what can you do? I've been so busy focusing on the apartment that I didn't realise 6 months has already passed, I've got 4 weeks left at work. 4 weeks to find a new job. Ugh.

Good evening crew,

Got a surprise visit from our real estate agent this afternoon, who brought a little something that just made all the hussle leading up to our move-in worthwhile. 2 gold class cinema tickets, champagne and a handwritten thank you card. How sweet?! I've had really, really bad (police report kind of bad) experiences with former agencies and landlords in London, so actually being appreciated and taken care of like this, just goes straight to the heart. I'm so, so greatful. Ping Little Real Estate, thank you!

Good afternoon crew, how's your weekend going?
I just got home from work about an hour ago. Today actually turned out to be quite great after all! But now I'm finally back home, on the couch, under the blanket, where I would have liked to spend the whole day. Isn't that what Sundays are for anyway? Couch, blanket, treats?
I had my lunch break at 9:30 this morning so as you can imagine, I was starving by the time I got home. Luckily I had some COYO coconut yoghurt with vanilla bean in the fridge (please sponsor me, I want life supply) It's my absolute fav.

Btw. I just changed the font of my posts. Thoughts? I'd like to hear your opinion if you notice the difference (before I had more of a 'times new roman' type style). I'll also give you a little glimse of our apartment some time early next week. I hope you've all had a great Sunday!

Peace x

You know those mornings, when it feels like your 4 hour sleept only felt like 1. Your bed is holding you in such a tight grip and you've no energy to even try to get up. The shower is warm, comforting, but not even the shower can wake you up. You make coffee and breakfast and take a seat on the couch. You can barely keep your eyes open. You know that if you let your head rest on the couch ledge for only a minute you'll be gone. Yeah I'm having one of those mornings. Not any less tired than when my alarm went off 3h ago. Oh well, I just did my makeup and surprisingly I don't look tired (thanks aēsop<3) and now I need to book an uber. Public transport is non-existent here on a Sunday morning.

Until later x

Good morning babes,

Again, thanks to everyone following me on my Insta-story, I think I did pretty well updating you with every step of this process. Now it's Thursday morning and our washing machine just arrived. Which means, everything is in place!

Last night we borrowed Cam's work van and went to collect our tables. He drove the van back while I assembled the tables by myself. (To my fellow Swedes out there, I had a little sing-a-long to Håkan Hellström during and I loved every moment of it.)

Woke up by 8:30 this morning and got up and made coffee and bacon sandwiches. Such a good feeling finally being able to have a proper breakfast. Now we're heading out for some more bits-&-bobs shopping and then I'm heading to get my tattoo done! So excited! X

Love love love our concrete coffee table!!! How nice is it?! So glad we found Nordik Living.

First night in our apartment, what a dream. Our couch is coming between 12-2 today so we got a bit of sleep-in. (It's 9:43 what am I talking about?) Just finishing up my cup of tea whilst gathering inspiration from Vogue Living, will soon make some breakfast.

Have a lovely day you guys x

HEY GUYS,

I just wanted to give you a quick update. We're now in bed, in our bed, in our apartment, YES WE FINALLY MOVED IN! For you following me on my Insta stories, already know this, but thank you for your support! You're the best!!

Anyhow, we went for breakfast at 7 o'clock this morning and got here by 8. Got all deliveries and we (read: I - queen of flatpacked furniture) assembled all of it. Went shopping at IKEA and had laksa and champagne for dinner, at home. Tomorrow we're getting the couch delivered and we're picking up our dining and coffee table.

Will show pictures tomorrow! Until then! X

Hey friends,
Just ending a great, busy day at work with a glass of Pinot, waiting for Cam to come pick me up. Not sure what we're up to tonight other than packing the car with our first load. I cannot believe we're actually getting our keys tomorrow afternoon! It has started to feel like our dream apartment we'll never actually live in. One more day off work, 2 more nights sleep, and then we're there. Finally.

Until later, love x

Hey babes,
I promised myself I would never let the blog suffer, and now I feel I have. I've had a really hard time with our move-in date being delayed for almost a whole month, and I'm so thankful for you guys being so understanding. I haven't been able to upload the kind of content that I want to, and not so regularly either. I've got a few post lined up but I don't want to post them in a rush. I want to be able to spend the time I need to feel satisfied and proud. And I want to enjoy it. Right now I'm just stressed and exhausted.

I know you're quite a few readers out there and I promise you with all my heart, NEXT WEEK is THE WEEK.
I've got so much excitement for next week I can barely handle. Weekend pfft, I just want it to be next week already!

Monday
Work 6:15am - 3:00pm
Collect our keys!!
Drop some stuff off at the apartment

Tuesday
Wake up early (probs around 7am)
Quick bagel brekky then load the car with the rest of our stuff
Unpack everything! (our suitcases will be tucked away and all boxes long gone)
Await all furniture deliveries + assemble
Off to IKEA for some shopping!
Takeaway laksa for dinner with a bottle of bubbles!!

Wednesday
Teeny tiny bit of sleep-in in our bed
Breakfast at home
Collect our dining and coffee tables
Assemble our dining chairs
Off to Kmart for shopping

So this is probably not all going to happen in 2 days so we've got Thursday off as well to really get everything done. I couldn't stand the thought of living in a half-furnished apartment with boxes everywhere, so I just want it all done as soon as possible so when we get back from work on Friday we actually have a HOME to come home to. I'm getting excited again. Butterflies in my tummy kind of excited! And ALSO:

Thursday
Tattoo appointment @ 2pm!

Can next week just get here now plzzzz. Stay tuned my loved ones. x

Good morning my loved ones,
It's Friday morning and Cam and I are on our way to get brunch. Our first day off together in I don't know how long!

Yesterday I had the day off as well and I spent my morning having tapas and wine for breakfast with my wonderful friend Michelle. The conversations that never end is the best conversations. We then went separate ways and I was slowly walking down one of my favourite streets in Melbourne; Gertrude St. Actually treated myself to some shopping too. Got a pair of jeans, a pair of flared pants, cropped white t-shirt and a cropped super blue knitted jumper. Basically got 2 outfits!

Spent the afternoon with Cam's sister Olivia and we got our nails done. Will upload some pictures later! Now we've arrived at our brunch destination. Speak later. X
