By the Sea Shore

As you may have grasped I’ve recently moved to Scotlan, to the west coast to be precise, for a job. I like to explore the area I live in when I move somewhere, especially pretty sea side villages. On this note I recently went to Dunure, a sea side village twenty minutes south of Ayr, for a day trip with a friend. Much fun, eating of fish and chips and ice cream ensued!

Get Ready With Me – Vintage Make-Up!

 

I think by now on the blog it’s easy to grasp that I love and am very heavily influenced by vintage style, make-up, hair and aesthetics. Particularly, the period between 1920 to 1965 and specifically the 1940s and 1950s.  The way women used to do their make-up and take care of their skin has influenced how I’ve done my make-up and my skincare routine for the best part of ten years.

Charity Shop Shopping

 

As a self-confessed vintage addict (also craft beer and ice cream addict) I love a good charity shop. In fact I prefer to shop in charity shops over normal shops because you can find some vintage treasures in charity shops. My 1920s Chanel and Lanvin dresses and 1920’s opera coat have come from charity shops. Also my Madeleine Vionnet and Dior dresses and accessories. Who says charity shops are horrible when you find vintage designer clothing in them?!

Woman Unknown – Another Murder Mystery book review!

 

I love a good murder mystery, like really love murder mysteries! In fact nearly every book I read is either a murder mystery or a crime drama set in the inter-war period or written during that period. Nothing fills my soul with delight than the combination of ‘inter-war country house murder mystery!’ in a description about a book. To say I was born in the wrong era is an understatement; I would have flourished in the 1920s and 1930s! Anyway now onto another murder mystery book review!
