Bad blogmistress

I've neglected my blog awfully (but not entirely - I kept updating my film inventory in the sidebar.) Things have been pretty crazy here since I last updated. Ant and I are now HOMEOWNERS, which is awfully exciting. We've been spending almost every spare minute we have working at the new place, and we're finally at the point where we can put some paint on the walls - finally it will look like we're improving the place instead of destroying it. We have a lot of plans that we're working towards. This photo is sort of like what we're aiming for with the living room:

But with a chair more like this one, except in a deep purple or something:

Funny how similar the layout of those two rooms are, actually. The first one is from Apartment Therapy" I think, and the other is obvs from Elle Decor. And belongs to Candace Bushnell. Anyway, the look I'm after is Paris chic. It's tiny so we can spend more per square meter than we could on a bigger place, which is nice because I. Hate. Cheap. Looking. Stuff. And it turns out that often, though not always, this means that I tend to fall for the most expensive item in the shop without trying. And that I have my eye on a baby blue SMEG, like this one from Yvestown:

Yummmmmmmmy. Anyway, there's no real point to this post other than alleviating my blog guilt, so I shall leave the fridge porn there. I promise not to go so long without blogging again, and also that the next post will be far less inane.
