Roxy is moving flats!

Hello my lovely readers!
You may have wondered why I've been a bit quiet on here and twitter... No? Well I've been moving flats! My boy and I have finally got a little place to call our own! Now, as I currently reside in Wales, I had to get the train up to Sheffield to go to our old house, pack all my stuff up and then get it moved across; no easy task in a cage and on cructhes!

Roxy's pocessions boxed up ready to move

I had the easy job of packing up all the stuff. My poor boy had to get this lot down two sets of stairs then in a car then into the new place.

Wardrobe with ikea dividers

The first thing I done when I got to our new place, obviously, was organize my clothes. We get a giant wardrobe each so I was super excited to get everything organized. I managed to fill my wardrobe up far too easily (and that's after a trip to the charity shop).

The boy and I had a deal; I bought all the soft furnishings but he would buy all the big things like new desks and bookshelves. Now not to blow my own horn, but I think I am awesome at picking out furnishings:

cute sofa with Matalan Stag cushion

How cute is this stag cushion? I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and needed it in my life. I was actually quite lucky as I didn't know the colour of the sofa so I took a gamble in getting brown/cream coloured items. Luckily for me, my gamble paid off. 

mans world include a lazyboy

The sofa is my domain and the lazy-boy was claimed by the boy as soon as we walked in. I bought this lush mustache cushion in Primark with the intention of putting it in the master bedroom but I think it looks ace on his chair and makes the place look a little less feminine.

After moving into our new flat, we went out for a celebratory breakfast:

pancakes and a latte

I had three pancakes with blueberries and creme fraiche, and the boy had pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, and it was so delicious. 

Normal posting will resume this week and I hope you enjoyed my little lifestyle post and I might do another one if this proves popular.

P.S. There's still time to nominate me for Best New Beauty Blog in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards *hint hint ;) *
