While I Was Away…

As I am catching up on blogs and the internet in general, I am finding some amazing gems and have decided to share some links with you while I get myself together for some “proper” posts from some of the wonderful “new” vintage beauty & charm books I have picked up. I have also included some old favourites.

Rookie Mag – Might Like A Girl

I highly recommend this post to everyone. Most of the examples in this article are the reasons I haven’t had girl friends until recently.

The only sort of “fashion tips” I follow.

Bobby Pin Blog – New Years Beauty Resolutions

I am not a big fan of resolutions – but these are ones I definitely want to get on top of this year.

Elle by E. Jean – 25 Things Every Woman should know

A Mix of very tongue-in-cheek and pretty solid advice. You choose which is which 😉

Quite Continental Charm School – Charm School Archives

One of the inspirations for this very blog.

Princess Pincurls – How To Find the Best Op Shops

I love this as most posts on these are very Americanised. Op shopping does appear to be a little different here and these are great suggestions.

Princess Pincurls  (again) – Mad Men Lingerie Special

 fantastic run down of the undergarments of  Mad Men along with current etsy listings.

Vintage Frills – The Vintage Bookclub

Reading books with a vintage flair (or set in vintage times) – not necessarily classics. Count me in!

I love this blog post. If you want to learn pin curls, you really do just have to keep trying.

Quite Continental – Charm School Archives

One of the inspirations for this blog. I love all these posts!
