Let’s just cut right to the chase here… I’ve been gone for quite a while. I have one very good excuse though…
My boyfriend and I have finally made the move to our very first home. Well, apartment, but we’re ready to turn this one bedroom, blank walled space into a warm, purposeful home.
Beginnings are hard for me. With my anxiety, I’d rather stay in one place that I know is safe for my entire life. Needless to say, this change was a long time coming. My boyfriend and I waited and then waited some more to find the perfect starting line for us. As soon as I saw #206, I knew it was for us.
It is nothing glamorous, but it is my happy place. It’s a one bedroom, one bath home with lots of closet space. The walls are fresh, the balcony is ready for plants to be hung, and the bedroom fits a king sized bed while still leaving plenty of room for living. The kitchen is ready to be made a mess and the living room has space for me to roll out my yoga mat.
But there is one major thing that sold me — the walk in closet. There will be plenty of reasons for my boyfriend and I to argue, but the closet will never be one of them. You know when Carrie Bradshaw walks into the penthouse of her dreams, opens the curtains, and says, “hello, I live here?” Well, that’s exactly what I did when I saw this closet.
It might not be a necessity for everyone, but, as you probably already guessed, having a place for all my thrift finds was important to me. I wanted to know that I could walk around vintage shops and stock up on all the pieces that spoke to me without having to worry about where to put it.
I might have been gone from the blog for a while, but I have a whole lot of tales for you. My journey to a purposeful life has only just begun.
I have been talking a lot about living purposefully, since the beginning of this blog. What I should have been saying was shopping purposefully.
My new goal is to have a purposeful home. So, while I will still be finding incredible clothing brands and showing off my thrifted outfits, I’m going to add homeware into the mix. What do you guys think? Even just in my first week of living in a new home, I’ve found tons of thrifted decor, secondhand essentials, and ways to make my home eco-friendly. I am so incredibly excited and inspired by the things that I have found.
Basically, what I’m trying to say is that this space will change a little bit. I will continue to show off my fashion finds, but it will be so much more. I hope that you guys are just as excited as I am. Please let me know what you think!
