We're Moving

I usually save lifestyle posts like this for my separate lifestyle blog, but with something as life-changing as this I thought I'd give it a spot on my beauty blog and do more detailed posts about the process on Microscope Life. Alex and I are moving at the end of the month. We've been in this apartment for year and when the lease started getting closer to being over we decided not to renew it. We made the very adult, scary decision to start looking for a house rather than rent.

We've found one that we love and have placed a bid on it, but its quite old with a few glaring issues and if our bid is accepted an inspection may show that it's not a wise choice to get the house. But we're excited. It's crazy that we're more nervous about getting the house and if we can fix it up more than the prospect of buying a home together. It's not scary or weird, it's just time. 

We'll find out in the next few days if the bid has been accepted (fingers crossed) and then things will really start moving. However in the meantime my parents have been kind enough to offer us the upstairs of their house (it's kind of like a small apartment) when our lease is up while we pursue the house or in a worst case scenario look for another apartment.

Any words of advice or encouragement are always appreciated. Send us good vibes that we can get the house and the inspection goes well!

xoxo Kayla


  1. Congratulations! Sending good thoughts your way!

  2. Good luck! I hope it is just the right amount of project for you.

    After living on my own, with my partner, for about 2 years, depleting funds & imminent studying means I have moved back home, again with my partner. Sob!
