Happy Sunday! This week has been pretty dreary, it feels like after two weeks of “Summer” (incl. temperatures almost reaching 30-degrees and barely any breeze) England has tired itself out and might be going into early Autumn, ha! I’m still hanging onto my love of this season before embracing the next, though – and looking forward to sharing some tidbits from this week.
- Our sofa for the lounge was finally delivered last week. We got this style from this store in “Le Mans Mist”. The sample was a soft diffused white, which both of us loved. I’m so happy that I’m not watching TV from the dining chairs anymore, though taking the blessing of even being able to afford a sofa, a TV and a home as so much more.
- I’m itching to start painting the second room of our house: the hallways. We have planned to incorporate a rich blue into our hallway, so I’m raring to get started on bringing that to life – hopefully more on that soon!
- I’m also finally getting to the part of our kitchen almost being entirely unpacked! For so long we have been living out of boxes but actually sitting down and organising each cupboard is so exciting to me. I still swoon every time I get one of our plates or bowls out, I love them so much. We got this style from Marks and Spencer’s.
- SUMMER SALES: has anyone else been loving them? Now that we’re approaching the end of the season, they’re everywhere I look, and I love them ALL. Including some of my absolute favourites here: this cologne right now, this sherpa-lined denim jacket (or this one too, for a more ‘broken in’ look!) – both Autumn ready, these blue and white striped swim shorts for those still living in Summer, this cotton trench-coat for layering through the Autumn nights – down to £40!, and this checked dogtooth coat that just screams Europe in January (and is triple reduced to £35 right now!).
