My New Obsession – Tropic Skincare

Skincare for me, has been a long process of trying products (many products), both good and bad, until I find something that suits my dry skin and keeps the breakouts at bay, as much as possible. Because of this, I often will find the products that do me well and stick to them. Well, myContinue reading “My New Obsession – Tropic Skincare”

The 90’s Birchbox! (Feb 2018)

Everybody must have one of those days where nothing seems to go as planned – Saturday was that day for me! I had wanted to use my anchor hair scarf from Collectif all week (as Saturday was my one day off), but due to re-organising our spare room, I could not for the life ofContinue reading “The 90’s Birchbox!

My spring ’18 lust list!

Well, thats one month gone for 2018! January seemed to go on forever, didn’t it? January was a good month for me, as I really have gotten back into wedding planning, but unfortunately that has made me realise that I really am on a budget up until May! But just because I have limited funds,Continue reading “My spring ’18 lust list!”

Getting personal – me, myself and I!

This past week has been rather hectic for me and my only day off was fitting in lots of things and rushing to get ready for an evening out, so… I had a very un-vintage and quite unglamorous week. So instead I thought I would use the opportunity for those who don’t know me personally,Continue reading “Getting personal – me, myself and I!”

Sunday… the good hair day!

Don’t you just love a good hair and make up day? When I sit down to do my hair (especially with vintage styles), I never quite know if the look I have in my head will translate onto my head or not. Lucky for me, Sunday was a good hair day! I had family travellingContinue reading “Sunday… the good hair day!”

Trying out a ‘quick pin up’ hair style!

I am ever searching for a quick, easy pin up hairstyle that doesn’t take an hour to set, cool and brush! I just don’t have the time or necessarily the energy on my very few days off. A little while ago, I found a tutorial by Pin Up Ashley Marie on good ol’ YouTube andContinue reading “Trying out a ‘quick pin up’ hair style!”

The January Birchbox

January is well known as the most depressing month of the year – dark nights, low funds… but a little present to yourself could certainly give you something to look forward to! This is a post fairly unrelated to all things vintage, but as you may have noticed I do love make up and beautyContinue reading “The January Birchbox”

B.A.I.T Rosalinda shoes – my review!

I have a confession. I have had, in the past, a small addiction to shoes. There is just something about a good pair of heels that I just can’t resist. As I’ve grown older with more financial responsibility, I don’t buy shoes as much as I would like to! But I do hunt out someContinue reading “B.A.I.T Rosalinda shoes – my review!”

Trying out a Gibson Roll!

I am certainly not one for the whole ‘new year, new me’ marlarky, but I am very much up for trying out new vintage hairstyles! I have recently joined a couple of vintage-style Facebook groups such as the ‘Vintage Tips and Tricks’ (run by the wonderful Miss Bee Townsend) and ‘Vintage Updos for Modern Girls’,Continue reading “Trying out a Gibson Roll!”

Reflection & Hope

As 2017 draws to a close, I felt I should put my two pennies worth in for the new year spirit and reflect over my own past year. So much has happened this year, all around the world and personally as well! I have continued to plan and organise for our up-coming wedding, I graduatedContinue reading “Reflection & Hope”
