Life Update | We bought a house!

Hi Everyone! Welcome back to my blog.

First of all, I want to apologise for the lack of content recently however I can assure you that I have a good excuse...

I am so overjoyed to announce that my boyfriend and I have finally bought our first home together, and we could not be happier!

This whole process started last September when we began looking seriously online for houses. We knew the area we wanted to purchase in and after completing a mortgage offer form online we had a rough idea of our budget. Things got serious when we found a house that we truly loved! We hadn’t planned on looking round any homes or even considering starting the process until the new year however when we saw this house come up on the market we knew that it was a sign, so we booked a viewing.

We knew that we wanted to find an older property with a bit of character, that we could make our own. I had a few pointers such as the fact I wanted a three bedroom with a good size garden and preferably a downstairs toilet (which is something older houses don’t typically have) and when this particular house came up ticking all of those boxes and more, we decided to place an offer.

There had been a lot of interest in the house already and it had only been up for a few days once we found it, so for that reason we acted quickly as we really didn’t want to lose this opportunity. To our delight, the offer was accepted and we then went on to find a mortgage advisor and solicitors. The entire process of purchasing a house is long, slow and stressful especially when doing so around Christmas time. We completed the purchase on December 19th and were able to move in before Christmas 2019! I worked extra hours over Christmas as it's a very busy time in the salon however Craig was able to take time off to build furniture and decorate the house. He did an incredible job along with our family at getting the house ready for us to move in! For us, buying a home together is an amazing achievement and we are so lucky and grateful to be in a position to do this at such a young age. We are finally feeling settled in the house and slowly but surely we will get everyone decorated exactly how we want it to look. All of our family have now visited the house and we are very much looking forward to the future and all the memories we will make in our home. 

I am so pleased that I am able to use this blog to share my life journey with you, as well as my beauty knowledge, and I can assure you that I will be back on schedule with my blog posts from here on out.

Thank you for reading this post. Let me know in the comments, would you like to see some home content on my blog too? Perhaps a house tour, interior inspiration or cleaning tips? I’d love to hear your thoughts! 

Have a great week.

With love,
