Today in a few pictures

I’ve had quite a busy day today so I thought I’d try to take a few photos! Quite tiring for a lady who’s 30 weeks pregnant but I like to be out and about rather than sitting in all day. 

I had college today. All of my deadlines are a month and a half before my classmates because my due date is the same week as normal deadlines! It’s quite stressful trying to get everything handed in on time and to stay organised but I think I’m doing okay! 



I live in Birmingham. I really like it here, I know so many people don’t. I think it’s got a lot to offer that’s often overlooked and I think if you know the right places then it’s a pretty cool place to live. I love living in the city too! There’s always something to do. 




We went for cocktails after college! I had a mocktail obv ;) it was called a Peach Melba and was bloody amazing. Who needs alcohol?! 





 And here’s our cute city by night time. I had a really good day today and I’ve spent it with good people!

Now I’m cooking a steak and I’m going to chill out and stuff my face hahahaha!

Hope you all had a lovely day

Update: I’m Pregnant, College, New House, OMG


It’s literally been like, a thousand years since I’ve posted. That’s because this year has been totally crazy and so many things have changed – I just haven’t had time to blog and I’ve missed it way too much. I’m going to try to get back into it and post nearly every day like before.

So there might be a slight change in how I blog as I am due to have a tiny baby boy in January! He is going to be the most loved ever – there are so many people who are waiting to meet him, it’s so exciting to think I’m going to be a mom in 10 weeks time!

I’ve also moved into a new house, so I’m feeling pretty grown up right now!

Also, as if that wasn’t enough, I started college in September studying fashion again. So my life is pretty full at the moment! I can’t believe how many things have changed in such a short amount of time.

I just wanted to let you guys know where I’d been… If you’re still there?! I think my last post was February what the hell.

Here’s me being all chubby and pregnant haha!

1940’s Street Style

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.

New Vintage Things! – Cake Stands, etc.

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

Halloween Decorations & Winston’s New Things

Happy Sunday!

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

Making Bread

Good evening!

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! 🙊😁


Vintage Postcards to The Dukes Head – Written from 1953!


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
