• Collectif Summer Party!

    Hey everyone, long time no see! I hope you are enjoying the (not so) summery weather here in Blighty at the moment and are in the mood to *que Bridesmaids reference* partaayyyyyyy! Today I have a very exciting post for you all, which comes in the form of a summer party that my best friend (*waves* Hey, Krystal!) and I attended last weekend on Sunday. Although the weather wasn’t exactly what you’d call summery, the party was booming, the drinks were flowing and the people were dancing late into the evening. The party was held at the fabulous Cuban themed Gabeto Bar in Camden and was organised by the wonderful…

  • The Audrey Hepburn Tag (By Shirinatra)

    Hello Everyone, welcome back to my blog. I hope you are all doing well, and that you are ready to celebrate Audrey Day! (Although its almost over #mybad) For those of you who arent aware of the significance of todays date, it actually marks 90 years since the birth of Audrey Hepburn who was born 4th May 1929! Sadly, although Audrey is no longer with us, her legacy as a beauty/fashion icon, movie star and humanitarian still live on today, which is why when I saw that Shirin (or Shirinatra on YouTube and Instagram) created this tag in her latest video, (linked below this post) I knew I had to…

  • A Week With Marilyn: Photographic Exhibition

    Hello Everyone! Today’s post is a photographically inspired one, from my recent visit to the ‘A Week With Marilyn’ photographic exhibition at Galerie Prints in Wimbledon. Showcasing a selection of beautiful pictures of the Hollywood starlet, Galerie Prints, in collaboration with the Getty Archives, showcased a collection of Ed Feingersh photographs from his week with Marilyn in 1955 as she went about her usual weekly routine in NYC. The exhibition provides fans of Marilyn with some gorgeous and rarely seen photographs, and as its free….to visit why on earth wouldn’t you want to pop down and see it? I hope you enjoy some of the photographs I took on my…

  • The Dior Collection: Proud Central (Gallery)

    Hello Everyone! Long time no see eh? Today’s post is more of a photo themed edition, as I am sharing with you my pictures from Proud Galleries (recently opened) ‘Dior Collection’. Located literally just around the corner from the National Gallery, the Proud Gallery is a photographic gallery which features a collection of pictures from a colourful array of past figures, such as; The Kennedy’s, The Beatles, Bowie, The Stones… to name just a few! I first heard about the gallery when I saw an advertisement for their recent Audrey Hepburn Photo Exhibition back in 2018 which I loved, so when I saw that they were going to be hosting…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Cahoots, London: A Night in the 1940s

    Hello Everyone! Welcome back to my blog. Today I have a very special ‘time-travelling’ edition post, as I FINALLY visited Cahoots in London *round of applause* I know many of may, or may not have heard of Cahoots, so I warn you…after reading this post you’re most certainly going to want to go! Located in Kingly Court in Carnaby Street, Cahoots is a 1940s underground tube station bar… yes, really. Obviously it is not a real tube station, but its been so expertly designed you would have no idea its not authentic or that its the 21st century for that matter!¬†You have to start your adventure by entering Kingly Court…
