Time for a change

Before I get back going with this blog I thought it best to do an update on a big change that's happened recently. But don't worry, scheduled is a beauty post, a wine tasting review and some Gluten Free restaurant reviews.

I moved to Reading this summer, and after a disastrous few months renting a different room, I've found the most perfect space, in a perfect flat, with some lovely girls. Honestly, it's insane. My bedroom has two floors and a huge bath and is absolutely incredible.

I've learnt A LOT about renting, preparing for a tenancy (e.g taking a million photos of everything), dealing with landlords/letting agents and the support networks around if things go wrong. I have endless praise for Citizens Advise and all the help they've given me through everything. Please let me know if you'd like a detailed post on it all, and don't worry I'll spare you the videos of sewage in my room...

SO to kick things off with my fresh start, here's some lovely snaps of my new space. There's lots of work still to be done and I'm not fully settled yet, but it's a pretty good start.
(don't worry that picture doesn't show exactly where I live it's just close by!)

I guess the biggest issue is that my rent has gone up significantly. I spent a long time toying with what to do and I've made the decision to put my own happiness and comfort above how much spare cash I have to waste on make-up and clothes I'll never wear anyway. I've had a very different outlook on life this year and have completely reassessed what is important to me.

So now for my question for you, how has 2017 changed how you view yourself?
