Skin Care Summer Lovin’: Friday Finds #12

If I asked you what is the one thing you want to do to better prepare yourself for summer, what would you say? To look amazing in my swimsuit, or perhaps to make sure that the air conditioning is fixed, or maybe even to ensure the pool is clean.
All valid, but none of those answers are on my agenda, except for maybe the swimsuit. For me, it’s about making sure my beautiful lily white skin stays lily white, and hydrated.

Vintage Wedding: Friday Finds #11

As you can imagine, with only thirty days until The Mister and I say ‘I Do’, my head is consumed by all things wedding. Whether it’s trying to figure out place settings, song lists, worry about whether or not I’ve put on a little bit too much winter padding for my dress (that’s another post altogether)…whatever it is, if it’s wedding related you can guarantee it has, is, or will be running through my mind at a million miles an hour. Today I bring to you some of Etsy’s finest vintage wedding finds – but they aren’t strictly wedding!

Vintage Hats on Etsy: Friday Finds #9

For a long time now, I’ve been dreaming of beautiful vintage hats. I don’t have any in my collection as yet, but I hope to rectify that situation sooner rather than later. Whenever I’m shopping in op shops and vintage stores, I am like a moth to the flame with hats. I’ve never found the perfect one to start my collection, but one day I’ll be inspired and fall in love with one and won’t be able to part with it, so I’ll give it a new home.

Winter Warmers: Friday Finds #8

Brrr, it’s cold in here! I know that seems to be a regular theme over the last few weeks but it really is cold in Victoria. So cold that there was snow in the mountains. In May. May does not ordinarily bring snow but this year it has. As I’m feeling extra cold these days, I thought it would be a good idea to find myself some new winter warmers.

Victory in Europe (V.E.) Day, 8 May 1945: The Nazis Surrender. War is over, and Europe is celebrating. Two excited young ladies plead with their parents to celebrate on the streets of London with the rest of the city. Their father finally agrees: “Let them go, this might be the only chance she gets.”

Seventy years later, to mark the release of ‘A Royal Night Out’, today’s Friday Finds recreates the costumes similar to those worn by Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret as seen in the ‘A Royal Night Out’ preview.

Friday Finds #4

If there is one thing that I absolutely love about myself it’s my skin. I was blessed with the amazing peaches and cream complexion from my British heritage (thanks Dad!), and as I journey through my early thirties I’m still lucky enough to have quite youthful skin. Now, I’m the first to admit that I don’t follow a skin care regime. I don’t know if this works for or against me, but so far it’s okay. This week I’m going to show you my favourite skin health and care products to keep my skin looking the way it does, even if I do not use them all the time.
