Hello my loves! It's time for a blog bonus post, hooray! As long-time readers of the blog will know, I love Dolly and Dotty's vintage-inspired dresses (I took the Poppy dress to the Isle of Wight and had a whale of a time), so when they asked me if I'd like to review one for… Continue reading Review: Dolly and Dotty May Dress
This week, I struggled to think of topics beginning with 'E' for my A-Z. The Boy and I had a bit of brainstorm walking to the cinema last night, quickly deciding that 'elegance' was the way to go. For fun, here's a selection of other ideas: Exercise - because I've been doing a bit (and… Continue reading E is for elegance: The A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world
This weekend, several rather exciting things have happened. On Friday, I saw some lovely chums who I haven't seen since I left my job, and had the most amazing ribs (if you're near to Hitchin, I'd definitely recommend them, and the restaurant they come from, Hermitage Road). As I left, one of the waitresses told… Continue reading C is for Cahoots and Car Boots – the A to Z of a vintage girl in a modern world
Happy Sunday everyone! First things first (and - fair warning - I'm here with my begging bowl) - I've entered Miss Vintage UK again this year, and it would mean the world to me to get into the final, which is held at the Twinwood Festival in August. To help me get through to the… Continue reading A is for Audrey (and others) – the A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world
Let's start with me sitting here, second guessing my title. Can a blog be old-fashioned? I mean, I can pepper it with 'pip pip', 'tally-ho' and the like, but it's on a computer, and they're not really that old-fashioned. Well, some are. That laptop I took to uni and still have kicking around somewhere despite… Continue reading Introducing the all-new, old-fashioned blog
A couple of months ago, my lovely fellow blogger, Miss Evelyn-Jo, invited me to take part in a post giving advice to the 16 year old me. When I was 16, I was often called fat (I was a size 10/12 and clearly nothing of the sort) and often felt inferior to my friends. I… Continue reading A few words of advice for 16 year old me
I thought you guys deserved a bonus post this week! The Boy and I were chatting about my last post, and wanted to show what it's like for a groom in the lead up to a wedding. So, while I was pampering, preening and packing, here's what The Boy got up to in the few… Continue reading Meanwhile, The Boy did his own preparations…
Reader, I married him. And it was glorious!
Most of the boxes are packed, the table plan is done (if you don't like where you're sitting, please don't tell me), and after a panicked 5:30am start, I think I'm just about where I should be on my to-do list. Hurrah! While I enjoy a biscuit (I joke, we have no biscuits in the… Continue reading Sneak peek: some unusual bits and pieces – 2 days to go
This is me, right now... While I pack what feels like thousands of cups and saucers, please enjoy these sneak peeks at our venue decoration...
