Summer movie fun...

Tuesday, 26 July 2011

I am SO excited.... This morning I booked tickets for an outdoor movie showing!!

Now, living in Scotland, things like this don't happen very often, and the only outdoor movie thing I've heard of local to me was a Halloween drive in type thing. I missed it last year and I was hoping they organised the same event this year, when I got an email from my bank (RBS) about these summer movie shows in Pollock Park (which happens to be 5 mins from my new flat).

Its just a 2 night event, so as soon as I got the email I snapped up tickets! The movie they'll be showing is Super8, which I was hoping to see anyway! Win win!

It's not until 26th august, but I'm SO excited already!!

Our happy little home!

Robert is away out this evening to play football, and although I'm supposed to be making a meal plan and writing a to do list, I decided I'd skive off for a little while and take some pics of the flat to share.

I'm so in love with this place already, even before I've added any of my own little touches or done any crafty diy's to make it pretty. It has beautiful high ceilings and cornicing, as well as a lovely bay window and original wooden floorboards. I fell in love with it the minute we walked in for the viewing 2 weeks ago!

Here is our lovely living room...

A closer view of the amazing fireplace (I'm already making plans for how I'm going to decorate the fireplace at Christmas time haha)....

Here is a view from the hall into the living room and bedroom

And here is the bedroom...(ignore the boxes and stuff, not completely finished unpacking those..)

The kitchen... (half of it anyway, the other half is a little messy hehe!)

Isn't it gorgeous!? I love the fact that the hall and bedroom are both yellow, I've been really obsessed with anything yellow lately!

The high ceilings and tall windows in every room make it feel so bright and big, so it feels really spacious considering it's only a 1 bedroom flat. The natural light we get is awesome, and the glow we get in the living-room around sunset is so cozy.

Here's a pic I took on Friday night of the glow from the sunset warming up the room..

The area nearby is really lovely, and we luckily have a pub that serves strongbow approx 10 seconds walk from the front door!

Heres a pic i took today of our view from the front windows. It does help that the weather was stunning today!!

You can probably understand why I'm so happy right now! Hehe!

I hope you all had a great weekend, I'm off now to cuddle up on the couch and enjoy the sunset while i wait for my boy to come home. Oh, and I'm going to tuck into this.... Yum!!

Byyye!!! xoxo

Happy birthday to meee!

Hello! Yesterday was my birthday... I'm now in my last year of my twenties... Scary thought!!

It was a busy day because not only was it my birthday but also moving day!

In between moving and unpacking though, we managed to enjoy a few ciders in the sun, and then by about 7pm we finished up for the day (and managed to have the place looking surprisingly tidy considering how many bags and boxes we moved in with!).

Robert nipped out and got us some Chinese for dinner, and we snuggled up on the couch for the evening with champagne and wine. The view from our flat is really pretty and with it being such a lovely day, the sunset was simply beautiful! Wish I had a decent picture, might try take one later.

Robert felt bad because we didn't go out anywhere to celebrate my birthday, but to be honest, moving into my new home with my love, and having a lovely cozy night at home was the best birthday celebration I could imagine.

I think we are going to be very happy here :)

June - In pictures

Saturday, 23 July 2011

Well hello there! Well didnt June (and most of July) just fly by?? I've had loads on, between festivals, birthdays and house hunting. As well as work and all the usual goings on. Busy Busy! 

Just gonna do a quick recap of June in pictures... coz I have some newer and exciting stuff I want to share! 

Start of June was Roberts birthday. We got dressed up and went into town to the comedy club, was a really fun night. I havent any pictures of Robert though, as he hates having his picture taken. I wore my yummy coral dress that Robert bought me a few months ago to cheer me up :o) 

 His pressies.... 

Star Wars print from this Etsy shop, in a frame from Ikea

A couple of little handmade bits...

a mini foosball table... (in the process of being built)

and this awesome tache card from Marks and Spencer :D 

Later that weekend we went to the West End Festival where we enjoyed a few beverages, and saw one of Roberts friends bands, Selective Service. 

The following weekend I packed up all this stuff....

and went here.....

 for this.... 

 Next up was my beloved Glastonbury.... 

It was pretty muddy... (pic from 2009, but it was even worse than this!) 

This is me and "Ryan Giggs" on route....

No road trip is complete without pork pies....

I was feeling a bit blue after I came home, because the next Glastonbury Festival doesnt take place until 2013, and because I'll be a qualified teacher by then, I wont be able to go :( 

I've become quite obsessed with colourful nails recently... I cant stop buying nail polishes!! 

 And here's a little pic just for the LOL's. Least appealing lingerie advert ever? 

Back into July now... lots of excitement going on - Robert and I finally found a flat we love, and we started moving some stuff in this afternoon, and move in officially tomorrow! I cant believe tonight will be the last night we'll have to spend apart! And it just so happens that tomorrow is my birthday!!! Best birthday present I could have asked for <3 

Pics of our flat coming soon...

Hope you're all having a lovely summer! 

Jilly xoxo
