So, What's going on right? Basically I've been trying to move house for the past three weeks or so but it completely fell through last weekend and Im currently back at my Mum's in Ludlow. Unfortunately we had one of the most nutcase and unhinged landlords (his names Karl Evans and properties in the Clapham/Balham area, ooh name and shame!) left us in the lurch by literally treating us like children and storming out of our contract signing. It's not the end of the world as I do have somewhere to stay at the moment. But the major downside is because I work from home I couldn't really stay with friends in London as I really don't wanna be a huge burden. So I've moved home for a bit. I've seen places I like over the past few days and hopefully I can keep looking while I'm away so my flatmate can go check them out. Everything goes so quickly in London and in the area we want to live it's a real struggle getting a 3-4 bed at the moment.

Obviously my blogging schedule is completely out of the window and I really haven't had any time to blog let alone trying to think about what to post about. All my stuff is in storage now and I can't lug my tripod and tons of clothes or makeup around with me so it's going to be a bit tricky for a while. So I'm going on hiatus for a bit. I'll be back for sure just whenever I actually have a proper roof over my head in London again! I'll post some sporadic updates when I can, but I think instagram outfits might be all I can muster up for the time being!

I know most people understand where I'm at and why I can't blog at the moment, and I really appreciate your patience and understanding while I'm away. I just thought I'd do a official post on it as I know not everyone follows me on every social media platform under the sun!

  2. I'm sorry to hear your housing arrangements fell through. I know a few friends who have had the same problems with doucheyyy landlords. You're not the only one who's been out of sync with blogging my schedule too changed lately due to my nctj course so you're right to have sometime out to yourself. You look flawless as always and I look forward to reading your new posts :) x

  31. I know how hard it is as I have also had to deal with the same thing lately. Thankfully, it turned out for the best in my case, but I agree. Even with a decent budget, finding a flat in Clapham / Balham is a nightmare!

    I hope you're alright and you'll find something soon!

  39. have a nice break :)
    Have you thought about getting a office or renting desk space when you get back to London so that you don't have to work from home? I know a few people who do that and its a great way to meet new people as well as get out of the house a bit.

  40. Well done for naming and shaming! Dodgy landlords should definitely get publicly called out on their bad behaviour. They'll soon stop if nobody will rent from them.
    Hope your housing drama gets sorted out soon and you're back in London.
