One week ago I moved out of my studio flat and into a four bed house with my three best friends. A decision not to be taken lightly, but a one to definitely consider. Since we moved in we've had the most fun together, getting up in each other's business and just having a good old time. People always say that living with friends isn't as good as you think it'll be but I can't think of anything better than to live with three people I have chosen to call my friends.
I wanted to share some of it with you as it's coming together rather nicely, I'm sure our parents would like to see what it looks like too. So, if you're into home decor or you're one of our rents, then this is for you! I've tried to link a few of the pieces shown but a lot of it is either vintage or not available to buy online anymore. Hope you enjoy this little sneak peak around our new abode!
Meet Kieran, my stupidly stylish better half. It's going to be hard not to spew out a shitload of compliments during this post (which will go straight to his head) but this guy really does ooze effortless rock 'n' roll style. He could give Miles Kane a run for his money, and as you can imagine, I love it. Dating someone who always looks good is annoying because he looks better than me a lot of the time but it could be worse, he could have no fashion sense whatsoever.
Wearing a mundane outfit and adding ridiculous accessories makes getting dressed in the morning easy, but also a lot of fun. You don't have to think hard about if something matches, you can just stick to a plain pair of jeans and a basic t-shirt and let the accessories do the talking. For me, it's all about the sunglasses, which easily make summer one of my favourite seasons. Who doesn't like wearing a pair of shades to cover the lack of sleep from the night before? Not only do they hide a multitude of sins but they also look cool as heck. I have an impressive collection which grows every summer. It ranges from the classic perfectly-round John Lennon specs to a simple RayBan Wayfarer knock-off, but these ones are quite possibly my most outrageous pair yet...
I haven't been blogging for a while, it's been an on and off hobby for some time. This isn't because of my usual excuse of life getting in the way, it goes far deeper than that this time. I've been struggling with self confidence and not of the appearance kind. I've started to feel low about my ability to write and create which is upsetting me to no end. I feel like I've always been a creative person, I was always terrible at math and anything that needed my brain to function even slightly, so being creative always made me feel comfortable and like I am actually capable of doing something good.
