A few days ago I did my first live chat/stream on Strobe (watch it here!) and a pretty big life announcement came up during it that I’ve been wanting to share…
I’m going to be moving in with my boyfriend (!!!) sometime this spring/summer, and we’ve started to look at places.
No, he is not moving into my “super chic loft” as someone on my stream put it (love you, mean it) but I’ll be moving out of the city and to the beach. We’re looking to find a place in Manhattan Beach, which is a chic, super cute little beach town in the South Bay.
I told my boyfriend, I hope he’s ready to live in a place with tons of plants, flowers, crystals, and girly vibes. If you’ve seen the photos of my downtown LA loft or queen chic Seattle style, you know what I’m talking about…
I forced him into getting a Pinterest account because I created a joint board called “BEACH CHIC” for us to get our home decor style/vibes (and inevitable differences…) sorted out before we actually moved in. HELLO, I am obsessed with interior design and home decor – if I’m going to leave my amazing loft that I love, best believe I’m going to have a vision board for the next place created before we even start looking. #psycho
I’m beyond excited, buuut… I can’t say that I’ve ever lived with a guy before. Like, what am I getting myself into? This is where I need YOUR help. Do you guys have any tips for someone moving in with a boyfriend for the first time?
Please share your wisdom in a comment because I literally almost googled “tips before moving in with boyfriend,” until I realized I probably have a lot of readers who are married and/or live with their boyfriends, who can provide me with realistic advice for someone doing this for their first time! Any tips or info to share would be MUCH appreciated :)
