The Vintage Summer Lookbook 2019

Summer is on its way! Of course, being a typical English springtime, we’ve already had a handful of sunny days and what seems like many more rainy, cold, windy days! Who knows what to wear?!I am always dressing in what I want to wear, rather than dressing for the weather. Typically, I always end upContinue reading “The Vintage Summer Lookbook 2019”

Collectif Sale Spending!

For the last couple of months, I have been counting down to one of my favourite times of the year… the big Collectif Clothing sale! Every year, big savings are to be had. I patiently waited until pay day to even take a glimpse of what was on offer. My first visit to the websiteContinue reading “Collectif Sale Spending!”

Then to now: the vintage and pin up style

I’m so surprised I have found the time to finally sit down and write! I had no idea how full on this wedding malarkey would be so close to the wedding… and I’m very aware that in real life it’s all I talk about and think about! I’m annoyed at myself that I didn’t writeContinue reading “Then to now: the vintage and pin up style”

Our trip to Windsor & Marlow! [Vlog]

Mae West once said ‘“I’ll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure.” If anyone has read my blog before, you have probably noticed that I enjoy watching YouTube – this includes vintage tutorials, make up hauls and all sorts of vlogs. Someone asked me a while ago if IContinue reading “Our trip to Windsor & Marlow! [Vlog]”

Review: Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Atlantic City

So, I have a confession. Another one actually. As well as having a bit of a shoe addiction, I am also what you may call, a make-up junkie. I love playing with make up, buying make up and watching all the beauty gurus on YouTube. The only thing is, as I have limited funds, IContinue reading “Review: Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Atlantic City”

Trying out a French twist! [Spring is coming!]

With the sunshine beaming this weekend, I couldn’t help but think that spring is near! Even though it was still a chill in the air, I was so happy for the blue sky and I was desperate to bust out some springtime outfits! As you may well know by now, I am forever looking forContinue reading “Trying out a French twist! [Spring is coming!]”

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! (Feb 2018)”

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!”

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!”
