Grace Mongey chatted to us at the Essence Festival event in Rathmines where she gushed about the excitement of buying her first home.
She recently let her followers in on the secret that she bought a house with her long time partner Chris.
The pair put their deposit down in January and found it hard to keep the secret from her massive following but she can’t wait to pick up the keys in ten days!
The blogger is now obsessed with interior design but is finding it tricky to settle on designs for the house.
“For the last few months, myself and Chris, my Pinterest has just been interiors, that’s all I follow now.”
“It’s kind of hard to decide exactly what you want but we’re going to live in the house for a few weeks before we start properly decorating but I’m just obsessed with anything interiors at the moment.”
Giving advice to other first time buyers Grace imparted her wisdom.
“We knew we wanted a new build so we used the help to buy scheme which was amazing.”
The couple “sat in and saved” to reach their goal of buying this January.
Speaking about her daughter Sienna she gushed, “From a year to 18 months she’s changed so much, she’s like a little lady walking around.”
“She follows me around the house. She does everything I do. She’s talking now, she’s so funny!”
