New apartment + Life update

You guys! I am officially a homeowner!

I have not posted since my trip to Adelaide, but every spare moment in March through to May I was trying my hardest to lock down a bank loan. Which in itself is a very long and boring story. In the end I was approved for a loan and I have a little place to call my own!

After a lot of trips to Kmart & IKEA its all starting to come together quite nicely. There's no photos of the interior yet because I'm not done decorating, the walls are still bare! Also we have a couple of projects to complete before I share my apartment with anyone! 

Recently my boyfriend and I have been binge watching The Simpsons from the first season. We are up to season 5, and I am enjoying every second of watching. As well as binge watching TV we have also been going on walks to get fitter. Our goal is to be fit enough for skiing when we get to Europe! I am definitely not that fit yet.
Now that the new Pokemon GO app is out we are going on a lot more walks! Since downloading the app I have walked about 30 km in the first week which is probably the reason why I'm feeling so exhausted! There is a popular Pokestop area near my apartment which is a in a triangle almost always with 3 lures on it (if you don't play the game you will have absolutely no idea what I am talking about) I was lucky enough to receive Snorlax when I arrived on the first day. I have really enjoyed the app so far even with all the crashes! 
I have also been teaching myself Spanish, I find learning a language to be very fun. I seem to know many words already thanks to watching so much US television.

I have some things coming up in the future like baking, podcasts and more adventures
Hope you guys have a great week.

Shaw + Smith || Adelaide Hills SA

Recently visited South Australia on a road trip with my boyfriend. We visited a couple of wineries in the Adelaide Hills because I had never been to the area. Looked through the guide of the hotel and picked one to start off with called Barristers block, it was recommended we go to Shaw + Smith after we had our tasting there.

A Little Haul - Homewares

I absolutely love homeware shopping and have started gathering some things I like ready for when I move into my apartment. I am not buying any furniture until I move in as I don't really have anywhere to store it, as it is my bedroom is overflowing with kitchen items, cushions, candles and lots of other bits and pieces for when I move out.

The Diplomat Highett

The Diplomat Cafe is one of those places that always looks packed when you drive past. On this late afternoon it was surprisingly quiet.
