I am super excited and so happy to announce that my partner and I will be moving into our first ever flat on the 1st of June! After months of flat hunting, we finally found the most perfect flat in Southampton and are counting down the days till we move in.
It’s been an incredibly long and stressful process finding the flat itself but we are super lucky to have found an agency who have made the process of signing the contract, sorting through finances etc easy for us, knowing that we are new to the experience. I have a little over a week left of assignments and exams then I am finally free from university, so I can’t wait to get settled into our new home and develop routines, getting into new habits etc.
In terms of our flat, here is a little information. We were fortunate enough to find a fully furnished flat, although next year we are hoping to go for unfurnished, we are going to save, save, save this year in preparation. It is set over two floors, with one bedroom and one bathroom, and an open living room/kitchen. It is the perfect size for us and I can’t wait to get the keys and make it our own.
I have been living on Pinterest recently trying to get some ideas on how to make our flat a bit more personal, and have already invested in a few bits for the flat such as bathroom towels to cutlery for the kitchen. I’ve taken a few trips to Southampton from Winchester and had a look in a few of the shops such as Flying Tiger (which, by the way, is AMAZING!).
A few people have asked me if I am going to vlog the moving experience and, if you know me, you’ll know that I have never vlogged and probably will never start. I severely lack the confidence and much prefer writing, I feel as though it’s more intimate than vlogging, though I promise I will record the entire experience on my Instagram stories on the days building up to move in!
I hope you all have a lovely week and enjoy the sunshine while you can! To those of you who have exams coming up, the best of luck to you…you got this!
