I'm sure you've all seen the beautiful tiger sweater by Kenzo floating around the blogosphere... You're looking at upwards of £150 for the real thing, but they sold out so fast and of course they are now going for £300-£500 on eBay! Insane. But Lucy saves the day and as always, a few fakes have popped up on eBay for prices that us poor people can actually justify. This green one is nearly identical to the real thing and is suprisingly really great quality! There are quite a few different colours on eBay at the moment, check out these: green or black/yellow/red speckle. Go go go before they're all gone! You can thank me now :)
In other news, ME AND MY BOYFRIEND MOVE IN TO OUR FIRST HOME TOMORROW! Officially it is his house but of course i'll be there all the time, cooking, cleaning, and being the perfect little house wife ;) We are sooo excited and i'm extremely happy for him, he has worked so hard at his new job and it's finally paying off, he will have a cute little home to call his own. He has been spending hundreds on homeware, who knew you needed SO much stuff to start a new home?! So many things we didn't even think about, like a toaster, utensils, a hoover, dishwasher tablets, a mop and bucket! He wants it all perfect straight away and there's no talking him out of it, so everything is piled up in my living room (he lives with me and my parents at the moment) waiting to be taken there tomorrow.
I plan to start doing home interior posts, I LOVE reading other home-y blogs and I can finally use all those little ideas i've been pinning on my "Home Interior" board on Pinterest ;). This weekend we plan to decorate the living room (it's bright pink?! WHY) and disinfect and clean EVERYTHING AND EVERYWHERE (i'm a bit OCD with other people's germs... bleach bleach bleach kill every little bacteria!). We can't really get settled until next week, as the Sky man doesn't come till Monday to install TV/phone/internet, and our gorgeous sofa doesn't arrive til Wednesday! So for now I don't know where we're gonna sit. But I am so excited I could scream!
We're off to Ikea now with a van, to buy our bed and a few other pieces of furniiii. (Does the word "furni" remind anyone else of Habbo Hotel? LOL miss that even though I spent hundreds of pounds on it).
