My New Digs


Hello everyone! I've finally finished moving into my new apartment in the city - an exciting achievement for a country girl such as myself. The place was in absolute squalor and disarray and it took two solid days of cleaning before it entered a liveable state. I can't believe how naive I was about the renter's market! However, the place cleaned up nicely and I'm pleased to share the results of my decorating prowess. Behold, my new digs!





Bah, I have so many errands to run before University actually starts again. I love independence!

HARRY POTTER BOOKENDS. amazing! your apartment looks très très cool. i love how you arranged your shoes. i'm moving soon too (though on a much smaller scale; just from one floor to another) and i'm really nervous about it. i've accumulated so much junk in the last few years, gah! good luck with school!

Hello!

I love your space. And I have to admit my crush with Kurt, and the grunge aesthetics (?). So, I'm pretty comfortable here. Loved your outfits...

And, oh, the Harry Potter thing. Loved that too...

gah, seeing your lovely new place makes me itch to move out into my own!

fazed-girl said...

HOLY SHIT, HARRY POTTER BOOKENDS. My life is incomplete.

Coatlicue Fatale said...

it seems everyone notice the harry potter book ends but I just wanted to say how awesome the POSTER YOU HAVE ON THE WALL IS!! Its a picture of both a boy and girl and it says something like "for every girl that threw out her easy back oven theres a boy longing to get one." I have that poster and Ive never seen anyone else! you are awesome and so is your blog
