Hankies Pankies!

September 29, 2009

I am in love with these Cath Kidston Hankies.  I brought the red polka dot one last week and they are the perfect size to use as a neat headscarf (I have lately taken to pin curling my hair and tying a headscarf around my head).  Although now I think I want all of them! Especially the cowboy print one!!  Buy them here!

Vintage Etsy Finds…Weekend Pick-Me-Ups

September 26, 2009

I very much love this little lady's blog and etsy shop.  On the blog you can find lovely photos of her weekend adventures where she always seems to be wearing the loveliest vintage finds, and in her Etsy shop you can find the loveliest vintage finds for yourself (I'm guessing the only reason she sells such nice stuff is because it doesn't fit!) The lovely lady I speak of is Meaghan from Left Hand Endeavor.  Check out her blog and her shop!

Hotel Pelirocco-The Pin-Up Parlour

September 19, 2009

So when we stayed in Brighton last weekend we stayed in the most amazing hotel! It was fabulous, all the rooms are themed around different things.  Of course we had to stay in the pin-up parlour room which is themed around Britain's answer to Marilyn: Diana Dors. Everyone at the hotel was lovely and I think it was very reasonably priced for the room we had.  I would definitely recommend!  I felt like a Hollywood Star!

The Royal Pavillion, Brighton

September 17, 2009

It's amazing that this decadent building is right in the middle of a British seaside town.  It was inspired by the great Taj Mahal, unfortunately I wasn't allowed to take photographs inside though.

Sorry it's been a while but I had a very hectic weekend! My very dear friend got married on Saturday and then the sweetheart and I went on a little seaside adventure to Brighton.  It was the loveliest weekend ever and I have lots of lovely photo's to share so bare with me!
