snippets & a catch up



i thought i'd post a few instagram photos of the flat so far (follow me @skyepennant) seeing as i still don't have the internet to blog properly. 
we're settling in pretty well now, though i'm starting to think that the decor needs toughening up a bit! i'm hoping to get some dark wood pieces in the bedroom which i think will work really well with what we already have.
it's very strange trying to furnish your home when it's not really yours.. if that makes any sense! i love the idea of being able to decorate a whole house of my own one day, but at least for now the new landlord will actually allow pictures to be hung on the wall. 

i feel so out of touch with the online world at the moment, my bloglovin' feed is at a stupidly high level & i miss being able to comment back to people. thank you to everyone who has been commenting here, i will definitely be going on a huge replying binge once i'm back online.  

things with the shop have taken a huge back seat at the moment due to the move and working full time. i've been trying to jot down ideas and plan some time to get making again, but it's a much slower process than i had anticipated. i'd rather all the new bits i have planned were done properly, but i promise to keep the blog updated with any news. 

anyway, i think that's enough for one little post. 
fingers crossed that next week i will have some proper posts to put up- i bought a pretty awesome jumper from a charity shop the other day that definitely deserves an outfit post!

p.s. i hope everyone is keeping wrapped up warm :)

  1. It's looking really lovely so far. I'm super jealous of the dresser, I've been wanting one like that for years and have plans to buy one in the future when I have my own house/a space to put it in! The little drawers that are sitting on it though- I think I have the same ones! :) xx

  5. Your place looks lovely, especially the pretty suitcases and the jars! When I was at uni we weren't even allowed to put pictures up, that was crap. Lovely blog by the way! :) xx
