My new flat – a glimpse so long

Categories DIY, fashion, food and decor, Personal

There has been a great build-up to this moment. In fact, I don’t think a single one of my blog posts this year has not made reference to the fact that I will be moving into my own flat – alone – for the first time ever.

Well, the big day finally arrived on Saturday and with loads of lugging, unpacking, cleaning and organising help from my family, I was quite happily settled by yesterday evening.

So, it is with great pleasure that I present to you a few little glimpses of my new little nest.

There is still quite a lot to be done, like getting a couch and plush Persian carpet (a girl’s gotta dream, right?) for the sitting room area, installing a towel railing and mirror in the bathroom and getting the last few kitchen necessities… but so far I’m quite cosy, comfy and loving it.

Finally somewhere I can ride my bike. Now just to squeeze it into the minuscule lift or get it down 3 flights of stairs.

I bought this owl the other day. Do you think it's mean to put him in this pretty plant cage?

Finally - the view. I can see Robben Island from my bed. Also a lot of buildings, but hey!
