I've been settled into my new flat for a few days now, so as promised, here's a mini tour around my room! We still haven't managed to decorate the place yet, I'm doing an Ikea haul with the girlies to pick out throws, cushions, candles and other homey things next week! I have lots of plans for my room already, all keeping to a minimalistic and clean, light feel, but I'll have to wait a while to get them in place.

P.S. Sorry for the horrible lighting! I've tweaked all of the photos because it was so cloudy by the time I got round to taking the photographs. Damnit procrastinating habit!

1. My desk and work area. I'm lucky to have a huge desk which faces out of an even huger window. My window gives me a panoramic view of the river which I love, especially by night with all the city lights.

2. Customary makeup storage area. I'm thinking of getting rid of these drawers soon but haven't yet found the perfect replacement.

3. A trinket box, mini photoframe of the sister and I, a photoclip of me and Dad ♥ My phone and my blogging notebook (:

4. The first Post-it note of the year! Some little bits and bobs I'm going to be picking up tomorrow when I pop into town.

5. My top drawer of random objects and sweet stationary.

6. Now Playing: Taylor Swift - Superstar.

7. The marina and sea from one side of our living room. SO beautiful when the sky is clear!

8. I took this the other night. This is the view from the other side of the living room. We get gorgeous sunsets over the sea and docks and a clear view of the city as well.

If you want to see anything in more detail, pop it in a comment or Formspring and I'll note it down for my next interiors installment, when I'll hopefully be able to show you my walls, bed and storage, post-decorating! I'm busy preparing to start back at Uni, keeping the flat pretty and clean, planning a giveaway and trying to make my hair look relatively presentable now that I'm sans hair straighteners! Busybusy!
