Gone Packing!

London here I come!

Howdy! Just a quick one to say hello before my head dips below the surface of cardboard boxes lake and I am gobbled up by the packing monster again!

What the hell am I talking about? Well, I’m moving house! After spending the last year and a half living with my parents in Surrey, I decided the occasional 4 hours spent travelling wasn’t really how I wanted to spend my 20s and so off I went to find a room. Easier than it sounds, which is why I’ll be writing a post on the subject of renting in London with tips from my own experience. Have you got any hunting/moving tips?

Saying I’m excited to settle in is an understatement! I might even admit to be losing sleep from mulling over the most space efficient and aesthetically pleasing shelving arrangement. I’ll be posting my bumper New Room Wish List very soon so do throw over any homewares or interior shop recommendations! In the mean time, here are some shots I took from my old house before I moved home. I wonder how my new place will turn out, stay tuned!

    Tu est retournée chez tes parents?

      Oui, je suis retournee chez mes parents depuis plus qu’un an apres la fac pendant que je commencer mon travail a Londres. J’ai eu de la chance mais c’etait assez loin pour voyager chaque jour! Lucy

    Good luck with your move – if like me you have an overflow of old carrier bags, these can be used instead of bubble wrap to squish into boxes of breakables 🙂

      Thanks Nikoline! I love moving so I’m in my element! 😉 But lets hope I don’t have to do it again too soon! x

      Hey Jessica! Thanks so much! I’m moving to sunny Muswell Hill in North London! It’s really residential but with nice, big old Victorian houses and a village feel. I’m really excited to settle in! x
