My favourite blogs

I thought I'd share with you a few of my favourite blogs.
These are ones that I always look forward to reading, have cheered me up on a lacklustre day, and are written by some lovely ladies.

In no particular order:

Annie Pancake

I started following her blog when she was in highschool, and now through university. I love her quirky vintage style.

Demi Lauren

Always fabulous, she looks like Britain's answer to Dita Von Teese, with her perfectly coiffured hair and red lips. Also, can I say-massively envious of her eyebrows  ;)

Diary of a Vintage Girl

Fleur de Guerre seems to pop up on every vintage clothing site I visit, modelling their garments:)
I also got a bit excited when I saw her as an extra on Eastenders a few weeks back lol

This Old Life

Nabby hasn't updated her blog since she announced her 2nd pregnancy (understand that ALL too well!) but if you love 1930's fashion, you should definitely check her out!  She makes THE most amazing 1930's reproduction outfits from mostly repurposed knits/clothing. Such talent...so jealous of her wardrobe :D

Welcome to Deluxeville

I have followed Mary Deluxe's blog for a few years now-lusted after her sexy mid-century lamps, drooled over her absolutely gorgeous house, been inspired by her garden, and her awesome "can-do" attitude towards life. Plus, she's a really lovely lady. Check her out!

and last but not least:

Tea with the Vintage Baroness

Jill has the most wonderful 1930's fashions, and I totally wish I lived closer to Canada...or that I had a few more $$$ to afford some of the outfits in her Etsy store!!

That's all for now.  If you have a fabulous vintage blog, leave me a comment below and I'll check it out!!

Til next time,

I'm Back....

...with a new addition!!

This cheeky monkey is now 5 months old!! It doesn't seem like so long ago I announced I was pregnant. He was born the day after his due date and was a whopping 11lbs 1oz....trust me, I was shocked! My other 3 were all around the 7lb mark, so he didn't feel like a tiny newborn. In fact, a lot of the clothes I had for him were too small!

Til next time!
