I think the 1940’s are definitely my favorite era for style – the clothes, hair, make-up & everything else. I love how glamorous and ladylike it looks, but then looks effortless at the same time, as if it’s not a high maintenance style (I’m pretty sure that it was though). I much prefer vintage style to the present.
I think you’ve probably noticed but I’m going to change my blog theme slightly. I really love vintage things and I’ve been collecting them for a really long time now. I’ve shared some of them with you but a lot of it you haven’t seen yet.
I’ve decided to go down the vintage route as I’ve started leaning into that style for hair, make up and fashion, as well as homeware.
I hope this is okay with you guys that have stuck with me!
I’ve found a few cool things in charity shops lately. I think I’ve got some kind of cake stand obsession though… If I see one I HAVE to buy it. Like, I literally cannot leave it behind. Especially when they’re true vintage and super cute! Anyway I thought I’d show you what I’ve bought recently. Nothing cost over £3.99 and they are all seriously gorgeous and in awesome condition. I bought them all from different stores, including the milk jug and sugar bowl which is weird because they sort of match! Let me know what you think x
Just went shopping to quickly pick up a few things for Winston (he hates the new food I bought him & seems a bit bored this week). I went to Wilko’s because they have some cute things for little pets! They also had a huge Halloween section so I picked up a couple of things to make my flat look a bit more festive for the month.
Oh, and Winston seems happy with his new things too!
It seems to have all been a bit too much for him though….
Hope you all have an awesome Sunday xxxxxx
I attempted to make bread today.
It took…… A while? Haha. Anyway I thought I’d share with you guys.
I followed an ‘easy bread recipe’ from online. I basically had to mix 500g bread flour, 12g fast action dried yeast, 2tsp salt & 300ml warm water together using my hands to form the dough, then I had to knead it for about 5 – 6 minutes. I left it in the bowl (above) to rise for about an hour & a half, then kneaded it again before placing it in the baking dish. Then I left it to rise AGAIN for another couple of hours (longggggggggg).
I baked it for likeeee, an hour in total? This is how it turned out.
I don’t actually think it looks that bad for my first attempt! It tastes pretty good too – a little doughy though so I think maybe I didn’t bake it for quite long enough.
It will be tasty for toast in the morning! 🙊😁
So I’m currently helping my Mom run her eBay shop – she sells some really cool vintage things, as well as lots of other quirky bits and bobs. She ordered a massive amount of old post cards (literally about 10 boxes) and I was helping her sort through them when I noticed how many were weirdly addressed to the same place – The Dukes Head in Sussex, England. I looked online and it’s a pub and it’s still open, which I thought was really cool (and nice because SO many pubs in England have been getting closed down lately) – oh, and the post cards that I have found so far are from the early to late 50’s!
I got so excited over this because I love this type of thing. I’ve taken a few pictures – I only have my iPad camera so they aren’t amazing, so I apologise for the quality. I will be getting a new camera soon!
Anyway, I hope you like them! (And see if you can read them because I’ve had trouble making out what they say) xxxx
Just thought I’d share these cute little make up compacts with you! My mom gave them to me today and I am so in love with them!
They look like brand new inside as well, I’m not sure whether they’ve even been used. I’m thinking of putting powder in the one and blusher in the other? Let me know what you think!
