Who is AnnabelVita?

Thank you for popping by! This is a blog about home. My home, inspiring homes, the meaning of home – maybe even your home if you’d like to share a room or house tour. I also post about trips we’ve been on, my favourite recipes and the best things to see and do in London, plus a few DIY and sewing projects.

I share my home with my boyfriend, who for confidentiality I call Mr V or Mr Vita. In January this year (2012), after five years in London, we made the bold move to quit our jobs and leave our beloved teeny flat near the Thames in search of a simpler life. Luckily, the risk paid off and we now live in the middle of a country town and walk to work every day!

A bit more about me: I’m 27 years old. I love dresses, and I’m slowly learning to make my own. I love beer and baths and my very favourite is a cold beer in a hot bath. Outdoor swimming makes my heart feel happy. My favourite colour is green, but I’m also partial to yellow and red. I love the letter A.

Real life people

If you know me in real life and have stumbled across this site without my telling you about it, I feel just a touch caught out. This isn’t a big dark secret, I write assuming anyone I know could read. It’s just like you’ve seen me putting my bins out in my skimpy pyjamas and with crazy-lady hair. Insert a slightly bashful wave here. Hello.

I’d like to think you have two options: a) pretend you didn’t see me putting out my bins and go back to what you were doing or b) say hello, wish me well.

    My favorite letter is A as well! And my favorite number is 4 because it looks like A. Not too many people have favorite letters/numbers :)

    Looking forward on reading your blog some more.

  2. You’re so great that I nominated you for a “7 Things About Me” Award! Hooray!

    I was always a little of jealous of friends with A names – it was like 2 letters in one because you could either write it rounded or with the point. K seemed so boring because its pretty much the same printed or in cursive. But cursive z. That’s the best!
