My Life


Vintage Vamp

This is my favourite outfit I’ve never even worn. I’ve had this corset since March, I know, MARCH! And I haven’t had chance to wear it out of the house yet. I’d planned to wear it when I went to Glamazon, but corsets aren’t exactly the sort of thing you just slip into in a […]

Things I Bought and a Spot of Roller Derby

So, I’m still all laid up with a sprained ankle. It’s not fun, and despite my unshakeable belief in my own magical healing powers after a week and a half it has mysteriously failed to be completely healed, almost as if the Doctor actually knew better than me when he said 4-6 weeks minimum. Humph. […]

Nautical but Nice

I hope you all had a lovely weekend? I had a busy one, and it’s continuing into a busy few weeks to come, but this particular busy weekend was all fun stuff! Sunday was my Dads 60th Birthday and we were taking him out for lunch to celebrate. I wanted something nice to wear, and […]

A Post About Nothing

Today I am mostly feeling uninspired. Blogging is a weird old thing. Sometimes it’s exciting parties (or invitations to exciting parties I can’t go to because they’re in London and I am not), glamorous events or parcels of exciting new things arriving through the post. But mostly it’s just you, sitting there at your computer, […]

A Night at The Glamazon

This is not the outfit I had planned to wear on Saturday. I had planned to wear a glorious black satin corset from Corsets UK. I’ve had it for months and had no opportunity to wear it, but the birthday party of Indigo Tattoo Studio featuring burlesque, and an Amazonian theme seemed the perfect opportunity. […]

Summer Frocks and Pies

Is it hot enough for you? I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but here it’s meltingly hot. It didn’t look that warm, then I went outside for a minute and a half and immediately came back in where it’s cool and I can see things. As it cools down later I plan […]

A Dress For All Seasons

Remember back in those dark and dreary days we call February? The days when all was grey and miserable, before we remembered that the sun WILL return? Well, back in those days I really pushed the boat out on a £12 dress because I was skint and hated my whole wardrobe. Well, now the sun […]

Race for Life and the Scottish Power #high5wave

Todays post is in aid of Charidee! On Monday I mentioned I ran Race for Life with the Norfolk Brawds. I signed up to do it with them weeks ago, but about a week prior to the run I got an email from Scottish Power asking me to take part on their behalf, take part […]

Hello! I’m Back!

How’ve you been this last week? I’m back after a lovely week off over my birthday. I’m older, but sadly not any wiser and not really enjoying the 1500 emails I have to wade through now I’ve got back! I started my break with a few days in a small cottage in Suffolk. I watched […]

The National Vintage Awards

Probably as you read this I am doing something really fun. I might be reading a book in the sunny garden with some Pimms, or by a rain spattered window with some spiked hot chocolate. Or perhaps I’m watching Poirot and drinking a Manhattan, a popular hobby of mine, or popping to the local pub […]

Novelty Prints and Summer Frocks

Today I may be suffering from the curse of the scheduled post. I’m taking a few days off over my birthday, so today’s post is actually an outfit from a few weeks ago. Taken in blazing sunshine on a little jaunt down by the river. When I actually wrote the post I was watching rain […]

Style Evolution – The Birthday Suit

Fnarr, fnarr, snigger etc. Actually I’m gearing up to take a few days off, as next week is my BIRTHDAY! I’m scheduling posts in advance and attempting to be all organised so I can take a break, so todays post, doesn’t contain long stories, thoughtful musings on important issues or even exciting things to buy, […]

A Nice Day for a Not White Wedding

Happy Bank Holiday Monday! Surprisingly from where I sit at the moment it is NOT raining, which is a wonder, so shortly I will be heading out to make the most of the day, but I thought I’d pop in first with a quick outfit post. I know ANOTHER outfit post, I’ve obviously got over […]

An Outfit to do Art in and a Hair Cut

On Wednesday I did Art. And I got a hair cut. I last had my hair cut on New Years Eve, so it was massively overdue. The end of my hair were frazzled and it looked pants unless I wore it up. Yes, that’s right pants, the very worst thing your hair can look like. […]

Finally #100HappyDays

Friday last week was the last day of my #100HappyDays Project. It’s been an interesting one, some days it was easy to find things that made me happy. Other days you really felt like you were reaching a little, but those were the days when it was most useful as an exercise. Obviously happy days […]

Good Friday Dressing Down

You’re about to see something you won’t see very often. Me in flats in an outfit post, and not standing on my tip toes! Also looking slightly worried and squinty as the sun was in my eyes. I don’t really like myself in flats. I have short legs proportionally to my body and I feel […]
