Welcome to my vintage loving lifestyle blog … allow me to introduce myselfI!
I’m a self confessed addict of all things vintage and retro, a mama of two amazing humans, a pampered pooch and his crazy ginger feline sidekick and a sax player’s wife. I’m a crafter, jewelry designer and DIY-er for life. I’m a hopeless hoarder, a tattooed pinup, vintage collector, a touch rock and roll and a whole lotta country and western!
I love writing, and this is my place to share my vintage loving life with a slice of fun and humour – warts and all. From my home and personal style, to being a parent and a pinup – hopefully some ideas will inspire you … or at least make you smile!
I don’t take myself seriously and am always up for a laugh, even at my own expense. Hopefully you can laugh along with me (or at me, hell I don’t care!) .
A few years ago, I took the plunge to quit my job in the science and technology field and followed my heart. Working in a job that no longer made me happy or fit in with my family life was affecting my mental health, but I won’t lie – being without a job or career direction was also very intimidating! I am now endeavouring to combine my love of colour and styling, DIY and vintage into a more creative life path – with this blog putting it all together in one place.
My love (and obsession) with vintage, colourful and novelty accessories led to me making my own jewelry. From this I have created my own little business, Retro Resins. I adore creating fun, mid century and retro inspired jewelry and accessories for others lovely ladies to enjoy as much as I do. My happy place is finding inspiration when browsing shops, looking through magazines or trawling through the plethora of online fashion and design
porn sites and social media – then creating something new and unique.
My style is probably best summed up as eclectic, colourful and retro. In fashion, jewelry and interior design, I happily mix vintage from any era, with vintage reproduction and a modern pieces with my own flair!
Thank you for reading and sharing my passion!
