• Collectif Vintage Haul!

    Hello, Hello Everyone. I hope you are all doing well and are in the mood for a fashion post today! As you can probably tell from reading this blog and by the theme of most of my posts… I love vintage (its a no brainer), so it makes perfect sense that the majority of my money would go on vintage items, more specifically vintage clothes. Although I adore original vintage clothes, I am also obsessed with reproduction brands such as Voodoo Vixen, Lindy Bop, and you guessed it by the title, Collectif! Originating as a stall on Camden Market, Collectif has done more than established itself over the last 18…

  • Hidden History: The Brand New Historical App!

    Hey Everyone, I’ve got a slightly more personal blog post for you all today which explores my job as a freelance writer and researcher for a brand-new app called Hidden History. So, lets take this back to the start shall we? Following the completion of my BA History degree last summer I, like many others 20 somethings, found myself at a crossroad in my life where I was uncertain about what I wanted to do with my life. I knew that I wanted to work in the historical field…. however, I wasn’t sure how or what I wanted to do to get there. After a rough year or so (in…

  • A Vintage Inspired Sherlock Holmes Look

    Well Hello Everyone, I hope youre all doing well and have had a great start to 2019 so far. Todays post (as you can see from the title) is something a little different for you all, and it comes in the form of a sort of fashion/style post. The only catch is…. is that I am not used to doing these so dont judge me too harshly please.. As you have all know, I am a massive nerd and I honestly dont say that lightly, so it probably comes as no surprise that I am a massive Sherlock Holmes fan. Although I’ve never been one for cosplay (because I havent…

  • Photo Diary: A Very Royal Day Out in Windsor

    Well Hello Everyone! Let me start by wishing you all a very Happy New Year! I hope you are suitably stuffed to the brim from the Christmas period and partied your way into 2019. To start off my blog again this year I decided to take you all back with me to my trip to Windsor last week, which was my present to my Mum this Christmas. As my Mum is also a history fanatic and enjoys all quintessentially British things like I do, I decided that a trip to Windsor to see the Castle and to finish the day off with a wonderful treat of Afternoon Tea was the…

  • Film Review: ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ (Peter Jackson)

    Hello Everyone, Today I have an extra special post for you. As we are now in the lead-up to the end of the centenary of the First World War, the commemorative events are in full swing and there are some amazing ones to behold. Today’s post is about one in particular, a brand new documentary film called ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’. For the first time in months, I went to the cinema last night. However, I didn’t go to the cinema to see just any film, I went to watch the live broadcasting of director Peter Jacksons newest cinematic masterpiece ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’. Commissioned by the Imperial…

  • Top 5 Historical Video Games

    Hi Everyone, Today I have an extra special post for you all in the form of my top 5 historical video games. In the bigger scheme of things… I guess one could say that I am a newbie to the world of video games, however, over the last couple of years, I’d like to say I built up a sound enough foundation to successfully relay my verdict on what games I think all you history lovers out there should definitely start playing. *disclaimer- pictures are not my own* Also on another note, for the LIFE of me, I could not decide how I would rank the games so instead I…

  • Photo Diary: A trip away to Chatsworth

    Hello Everyone, Today is the first edition of a new series I’d like to call ‘Elisha’s Photo Diary’. In other words instead of me ranting on for page and a bit I’d like to briefly introduce you to my topic of choice and share some wonderful pictures I think you’d all enjoy. Today’s photo diary is from my recent trip to the Peak District for my best friends 21st birthday, we are both OBSESSED with Pride and Prejudice so decided to embrace our own Lizzie Bennet’s and immerse ourselves in the beautiful scenery and of course, Chatsworth. Enjoy the pictures <3    

  • Ramsey 1940’s Weekend (and Mini-Haul)

    Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well and ready for today’s post. As you can guess by the theme of this blog, I’m obsessed with history and vintage.. so when I tell you that I went to a 1940’s festival last weekend you’ll all know how excited I was at the prospect. For the last four or so years, my Dad, Nan and I have a tradition of visiting a 1940’s or vintage festival every year in late summer or early September when most of the events take place, this year we chose to visit Ramsey 1940’s weekend in Cambridgeshire after having a wonderful time at the 2016 festival.…

  • Mini Voodoo Vixen Haul

    Hello Everyone, welcome back! Today I have a mini haul for you all, and it comes from the amazing vintage reproduction company ‘Voodoo Vixen’, London. In recent years vintage reproduction has seen a steady increase with companies such as Collectif and Lindy Bop making their mark, Voodoo Vixen (although I had heard of it previously) was new to me, and when I saw they had a sale on I couldn’t resist a cheeky purchase (or two). Now, these purchases are actually practical for once as I bought myself a pair of sunglasses (because I lost my previous pair somewhere in Albania) and a beautiful, BEAUTIFUL blush from a brand called…

  • The Durrells of Corfu: A Visit to the Danilia Village (The set of The Durrells)

    Hello Everyone, welcome back! Three weeks to the day, I went on a lovely holiday to the beautiful Greek Island of Corfu and now, since I’ve (finally) been through and sorted my pictures, I thought I’d share an amazing and unique experience I had whilst there. As a MAJOR period drama nerd, the main reason for my visit was of course, the ITV series ‘the Durrells’ which began in 2016. Since its premier,  I was hooked on the series and absolutely fell in love with the families story and of course the island paradise which is Corfu, and I knew by the time I’d finished series three (and had my…
