Typical. You miss blogging all month and the weekend you plan to get back to it, nothing but rain. Scotland as much as I love you the weather presents an endless problem.

Buying vintage can be tough. Finding that perfect piece can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Once you find it there no guarantee it’ll fit even if it is your size as they can vary depending on the decade and style. This skirt was a pretty special find by my big sis at the awesome Glad Rags Thrift.

I realised this week I’ve been blogging for 3 years now and it made me wonder why I do this? Three years has flown by and I still don’t really know what am doing. I’ve achieved less than I thought I would, far less than a lot of blogs I follow. Blogging takes up a lot of time and yet I still struggle to post regularly. I have no idea about SEO, coding or even how to work my DSLR properly. Even simple things like outfit posts often lead to frustration due to weather, Seb misbehaving, otherwise known as being a dog, or fights with my photographer/sister because you know, sisters.

Last night in Barcelona, of course a night on the town was in order. We didn’t fly out till 2pm so there was no stress about an early morning flight. After the fanciest tapas I’ve ever seen, we settled in a cool little bar a gorged on cocktails. La Ribera became my favourite area in the city with all the cool little bars it’s filled … Continue reading No We’re Not Going Home Tonight
It’s Thursday folks, you know what that means, almost the weekend! This weekend will be the first in a while I’ve had no work to do, how I’m looking forward to it. Here’s another little work wear post, this may become a feature. I love this little jacket, it has a Chanel feel about it but was a complete bargain. It also goes with pretty … Continue reading I’ve Been Working All Week
Recently I’ve heard a lot of negative chat about bloggers from other bloggers. The main bones of contention being that the blogs show perfect lives rather than real lives and outfit posts having ‘staged’ outfits. Harsh indeed, where is the love people? I hope no one feels this way about my little corner of the internet. I’ll readily accept that my blog does show the … Continue reading I’ve Looked at Life that Way
You know there’s all those fashion rules; legs or cleavage, don’t wear white after labour day, don’t mix patterns. It seems we’re all breaking them these days so I thought I would too. I’m in love with this little skort from Primark. I’ve recently discovered it has a matching jacket but who wants matching when you have this wonderful vintage tartan scarf to clash with … Continue reading Should I Stay or Should I Go
I’ve mentioned before how I love a little bit of vintage. I’ve always liked having things that are one of a kind or limited edition and vintage is exactly that. With that in mind I was pretty excited when a little email dropped in my inbox inviting me to join in with the Beyond Retro blogger competition. Beyond Retro have an amazing selection of Kimonos, … Continue reading From that Thrift Shop Down the Road
You know people say if you keep something long enough it comes back into fashion, well it’s true. Just like new boy bands pull out classics from the archives and make them a hit again. These jeans are my fashion throwbacks, I’ve had them since I was 16. I’m not really sure how I’ve managed to keep hold of them so long but I love … Continue reading One Way or Another
After a few months of asking I finally managed to convince the man to allow me to wear his Versace shirt. I have to say I was shocked to discover he even owned such an item, apparently circa 1996 he was a bit of a fashionista. I am so glad he kept this though as now I get a vintage designer piece for free and … Continue reading Silk Shirt and it’s Versace
