This weekend, boyfriend and I moved into our new place.
We are still in the process of moving in and and getting everything organised, so there are not pictures just yet but I thought I’d take the chance to show you our old apartment that I loved, and had wonderful memories in.
Our apartment was a 3 bedroom apartment in the city center, that I shared with boyfriend and another girl who also studied in Aarhus. This was our bedroom/working area. I work from home mostly, which means the decorating of this room way mostly left up to me, hence the “Beauty and the Biest” poster that I got from my Danish tandem partner. Don’t judge.The only shelf we had in our apartment. In the first shelf we stored the books we absolutely couldn’t live without, some extra disposable pads that I have been trying to use up for the past 2 years but always preferred my Lunette cup, and our oil burner that we use instead of scented candles. Second and third shelf were for work-related things, as well as for meds and a few of my beauty and makeup items. The last shelf was for my second-hand Danish books and my beloved second-hand camera.
We got this sit-stand desk via the preloved app Tradono for about 80 Euros, which is such a bargain for an amazing desk like this. Once again, preloved for the win.
Our living room was mostly used as a common area only, as everyone had to walk through it in order to get to the kitchen. It’s also where we had our moving-in party, and several blurry nights, with maybe a little too much gin involved.
Boyfriend and I shared a closet that was usually seperated by our ironing board. These, and the clothes in the two leopard ( or whatever that pattern is supposed to be) boxes are the only clothes I own and I looooove all of them. Don’t be fooled by my boyfriends side though, these are only his button ups for work and his banana costume (don’t ask). He has an entire closet filled with all kinds of stuff and I refuse to go in there.
Boyfriend is also the oldest of 4 brothers, which means that whenever his brothers came over, an xbox is a “can’t do without”. He did get the xbox and all of the games second-hand and I love him for it.
A little hint of my Zero Waste lifestyle in the 1st and second shelf of our kitchen.
Personally I found it challenging at times to pursue a Zero Waste lifestyle while sharing an apartment with people who didn’t and in our new apartment we decided to completely seperate closets, cabinets and even fridge and freezer space.
My most used kitchen items in a row: french press, blender, mill.
This was little tour of our apartment, I didn’t show you the bathroom or toilet because it is too disgusting and old to ever take pictures of and also, I never kept anything there because I preferred to just bring it with me when I went to have a shower.
