Home is where the heart is.









Yesterday I put a post up that I ended up taking down. I put it up in a rush, because i felt guilty about not blogging in a while. I try not to over think my posts that much and I try to post on here as regularly as I can, but sometimes life just gets in the way. When I started blogging I didn’t want to be someone that apologises when the blog is left unattended for a few weeks… but you cant help but feel bad when you realise you haven’t looked at your blog in days and that you might just be letting people down.

If you are a blogger do you put pressure on yourself to post within a certain time frame? Or are you less stringent about your blogging? What about if you have favorite blogs you read regularly… do you get bored when there isn’t a new post every two days?

I think it’s all really interesting and personally I love it when my favorite bloggers upload every few days but at the end of the day I do have realistic expectations of these people!

Any who, as I said, I did do a post yesterday but I took it down as it was rushed and not how I wanted it to be. Instead I would like to show you all my apartment. I have been trapped in here for the last three days due to being sick and it was during this time that i realised im really happy with the space we have created and the pieces we have purchased in the last few years.

Our apartment is small, cosy, clean and white. S and I collected most our furniture from garage sales, vintage stores and IKEA, and we attempt to purchase furniture that will suit most rentals, as we don’t plan to buy for a while. Our place over looks lush green trees and is whisper quiet when you close the door. A new addition to the house is this Snow White wall mount. Ive had it since i was a child and the fine print states the picture was created in 1987, the year i was born.

Your place looks beautiful! And you know what I'm like with my blog - I'm a once a dayer but I post random nothings!!
Its easy for me cos I'm on the mac for work all day!

Some of the best blogs are the ones that only post weekly. They post less often, but with better quality posts :) Don't feel pressured to post too often if it means posting things you aren't happy with!

Simone your blog is one of the ones that is always updated and your picture archives are to die for m'dear. You inspired me to start saving more inspirational pictures!

As they say.. Quality over quantity... I'm in the same boat myself, I used to post almost daily, sometimes twice a day but now I find myself being so busy with life in general!

I always love your posts because they are somewhat Personal... I feel like I know you! I love your blog, Your outfit posts always inspire me!

such a cute house, thank you for sharing :) I am all for the less is more and cleaner look, and you have just reminded me that I do need to get margharita glasses! :)

I think real life is more important that blogging, whatever the case be it work/life/illness etc that takes you away from it all. Great reflective post :)

April Rose said...

@Kashen did you know the glasses are actually very very old champagne glasses?? They look like margarita glasses don’t they! They were given to me by an elderly friend of the family and apparently back in the day they were modelled on Marie Antoinette’s breasts!haha.

Kashen Jewellery said...

Haha thats awesome! My grandma has also very simliar (also champagne glasses) but with a gold rim and beautiful engraving. Anyhow I feel like a drink now :)

Ah, I love that chair!!

I will get to an Inglot Palette post eventually! I just cant find out the pricing and they have changed the system a little since I bought mine. I can highly recommend them though, the powders are high quality!

Tea said...

Oh and a note on the blogging thing...I just dont stress about it too much. I kind of work well with guidelines so I tell myself that 2 posts a week is a good thing to aim for. But Im feeling very in to beauty products at the moment so by the end of today I might end up with 2 or 3 more posts!

April Rose said...

Oh Tea i was just thinking about the inglot palletes the other day! Cant wait until your post is up, topping up my shadows is next on my list!
