New Beginnings

Sometimes fashion takes a back step in my life and this last week has been one of those.

I’m putting my house on the market! After many years rattling around, sometimes with house-guests and other times on my own, it is time to let go of all the memories and look forward to new beginnings; a fresh start and an adventure into the unknown.

Having watched enough reality DIY shows, it is daunting everything that you need to do, in order to get your house ready for sale, or perhaps I am just really fussy.  Lately I go everywhere with a pen and paper writing copious amounts of lists (that I keep losing and then have to start again); often check the weather forecast, hoping there won’t be rain as house painting and landscaping was top of the list.  I never thought of myself as a perfectionist but I do have high standards and trying to get everything exactly how I want just isn’t easy.

I know it is only going to get worse once the open homes start.  I have all my fingers and toes crossed that on auction day 25th March 2015 I will be celebrating the start of a new life; which includes looking for a new house (which will have plenty of room for my clothes; a high-pitched roof; sun-drenched deck and a park nearby so I can go running).

I’ll keep you updated in regards to how the house-selling goes and if I’m popping a bottle of champagne come auction day. Next week I’ll share with you some of my favourite pieces of furniture and accessories.

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?

    It looks perfectly styled and ready for the first viewing! Good luck with it all and remember to hide anything precious out of sight – alas not everyone is trustworthy! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you get the outcome you want. And how exciting to be able to go house hunting – wish I was there to go with you as I love looking at houses!

    • I remember you actually helping me move into Maui Grove way back when … and alas won’t have you help me go house hunting this time. It is such a big decision choosing my next home. I have started looking seeing what is out there .. but there isn’t much that is contemporary in my budget … oh well fingers crossed the right one will appear.

        Are you looking for a house or an apartment? An apartment might be good – one in the middle so there are no roof leaks! Good Luck!

      • Ideally want a small perfectly formed house that can fit my clothes, a baby grand piano and a little bit of grass. Solid as a rock.
