Movin' 1

As you may already know if you follow me on twitter or instagram, I moved this past weekend! I was so wrapped up in moving that I was basically unplugged all weekend, so I spent yesterday catching up with my networks. I thought I would give you guys a little update on my life lately :)

I’m still living in NYC and I’m actually still in the same neighborhood- the East Village. The main reason why my roommate and I moved was to have more space and this apartment definitely fulfilled our wishes. Friday was moving day and we hired movers to help us out. We moved from a fifth floor walkup to a fourth floor walkup and I knew there was no way we could do it ourselves! We also took an Ikea trip that same day, so by the time we finally made it back to our apartment and into bed we were exhausted.

On Saturday, I woke up early and prepared to paint my room. I had a good bit left over from the last time I did this, so I decide to paint my room a pale yellow shade again.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have quite enough to finish the room, so I had to run to the hardware store in the middle of painting to get another can! Later, in the afternoon, a couple of friends came over to check out the new place and it was nice to have a little bit of a break from unpacking.

By Sunday, I really wanted to finish most of my unpacking. I set up all my furniture, which involved moving all my pieces around several times to see which layout I liked best. I also made a trip to the Container Store since I needed to pick up a few things. I’m so lucky that the closet in my new room is huge- I actually had to get more hangers because I didn’t have enough!

And now, today, everything is pretty much unpacked and set up! I still haven’t done any decorating yet, but at least now all of my things are out of boxes and my bed isn’t covered in stuff. I’m so excited about my new space and all the decorating possibilities!

Tell me: How is your bedroom decorated?

    Fun! I hope you like your new place! I request a tour post! :D Mine is… quite decorated. Pink striped walls, and lots of vintage decor.

    • Nnenna

      Yes, I will definitely take some pictures for the blog when the place is a bit more put together :) Pink striped walls? That sounds awesome!

  • Hope Shores

    Yay for huge closets!

    • Nnenna

      YES. This closet was a huge selling point for me! :D

  • Lyddiegal

    that sounds like an exhausting move! must be nice to be settled in at last.

    • Nnenna

      Yes, I’m so glad we’re done with the heavy lifting, although there’s still plenty of unpacking to go!

  • Monique

    Glad you’re still in the city! Way to go getting so much done so quickly. i’m glad you have more space now, so important!!!

    • Nnenna

      I’m glad I’m still in the city too and I very much like our new block. It’s a little quieter and a little closer to work for me- win win! :)

    My bedroom is still in a state of change since I moved out of my NYC apartment in June and back to Long Island. Tomorrow I’m going to take a trip to Anthropologie to buy some door knobs for my closet doors.

    • Nnenna

      Ahh, I love the doorknobs they sell at Anthro! You’ll have to show us which one you pick up! :)

  • Alex Elizabeth

    I just want an apartmenttttttt hahaha. I cry a little bit when I think about the East Village. Everything is just too expensive.

    • Nnenna

      Yeah, it isn’t cheap, that’s for sure. Keep taking advantage of your free apartment! :)

  • tracy

    Moving is so exhausting. I hope you plenty of rest and enjoy your new apartment.

    • Nnenna

      Thank you Tracy! I hoping this weekend will be low-key and relaxing :)

  • respect_the_shoes

    Holy cow, you guys had one busy weekend! I still have boxes I haven’t unpacked from two years ago, hehe.

    • Nnenna

      Haha :) Well I wanted to at least have my bedroom set up asap, so I focused on that first. There’s still lots to go in the other rooms before it feels like home though!

  • Jenmarie

    My goodness, you sure have been busy! I can’t wait to see how everything turns out!

    • Nnenna

      Thanks Jenmarie- I’m looking forward to sharing when it’s all done :)

  • Jackie Saffert

    That sounds like a busy weekend! Moving is always exhausting and stressful but it’s exciting at the same time. I moved earlier this fall and I have yet to finish decorating my entire apartment but hopefully I will sometime soon!

    • Nnenna

      Yes, it was a very jam-packed weekend, which is why I’m looking forward to a quite weekend starting today! Hope you’ll share some pictures as you decorate your apartment :)

  • Marissa

    Aww, honey! It sounds like you need a vacation after that weekend! I’m glad to hear you’re getting settled, though, and that you have more space. (Nothing more important than a huge closet!) Here’s wishing you lots of luck in your new place!

    • Nnenna

      Yes, I’d love a vacation right now- still so tired from last weekend! Thanks Marissa! :)

  • Honeysuckelle

    Congrats on the move! Tis’ the season, I just moved as well, it is an exhausting amount of work, isn’t it? I moved about three weeks ago and I still have so much left to do. Moving up and down all those flights of stairs? Gahhh, I admire your strength haha. My bedroom is a work in progress at the moment, I think I’m going to go for a medieval/renaissance look but I’m not sure. We can’t paint and all the furniture I own seems to be varying shades and types of wood.


    • Nnenna

      Congrats on your recent move as well! Are you enjoying the new place?

      I know what you mean, I realize a lot of my stuff doesn’t match so I’m going for a more cohesive look now with white furniture. Hope you’ll share some pics on your blog as you decorate your new space!
