Exploring Arran – Part Two

After a wonderful night’s sleep in twin beds! (This is the only room the hotel had left for a reasonable price!) we awoke and a wonderful breakfast at The Corrie Hotel. The only problem being that the waiter assumed I eat pork (which I don’t) and gave me a full Scottish breakfast! This was soon rectified with a lovely vegetarian breakfast and we were soon on our way to explore the rest of Arran!

Exploring Arran – Part One

Now that I’m living on the west coast of Scotland it means that I can explore this part of the world and further afield without having to worry about extortionate ferry and plane prices. I just have to hop in my car and drive to explore some of the most stunning scenery in the UK. With this in mind last weekend my boyfriend and I hopped in the car and took a ferry over to the Isle of Arran.

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?!
