Man, I've missed blogging so much. As usual, life has been pretty hectic over the past few months and there never seemed to be the perfect time to sit down and get some blog posts written until now. Me & Ally officially moved into our new uni house a month ago today. As much as I loved halls and I am so grateful for the experience, there's honestly nothing better than having your own house. It is pretty scary as you become in charge of all these bills, making sure you don't blast out the heating before your dreaded payments start to roll in and not mention the thought while in lectures on whether you turned the cooker off properly or even whether you shut the door properly. I suppose it's just all the things I took for granted while living at home, but in the end it's all a learning experience.
I think the thing I was most excited about was fixing up my room and just making it mine. Over summer all I did was read blog posts and watch YouTube videos of room tours to get as much room inspiration as possible. I think my room now is the look I wanted to go for when I lived in halls. Last year I found it really tricky to get my room to how I wanted it to be. Did anyone else feel a big change room wise moving from halls to a house? it's hard to explain but I think my room now just feels so much more cosy. I've accumulated so many books in the last 12 months and they all have the perfect spot around my room and it's the nicest thing to jump into bed after a long day and just grab one and read all night. My artificial flowers really brighten up the room, I couldn't be trusted to get a real bunch just yet. My Game of Thrones canvas not only completes the room but makes for great conversation whenever anyone comes over, it always starts with a "OMG, I love Game of Thrones too" and "ew, why did you choose the Lannister's" which FYI it's more fun having the bad guys on your wall, even though Jon Snow would have made for great eye candy.
Lastly, you may or may not notice an improvement with my pictures. Since I started this blog back in 2012 I've gone from using a digital camera, an iPhone 4s, an iPhone 5s to... The Canon EOS 1100D. I'm so happy to finally have got my hands on a Canon camera. It's something I've wanted for ages to not only get my blog pictures to a better quality but to also improve on my photography skills. I still haven't quite got to grips with everything but I'm going to dedicate a lot of my free time over the next few weeks to getting to know every detail and feature about it. So watch this space...
