Well it may have seemed like I dropped off the face of the universe but for the past 4 weeks I’ve been working hard towards my exams out in Germany. They finally ended yesterday so I can relax for a few weeks until it all starts again. It hasn’t really sunk in yet that they’ve finished but closing all the revision tabs that have been open on my laptop for far too long now didn’t half feel good!
After a few days of gathering my brain back together I’m now ready to face the world again! I’ve been reading tonnes and loved every second of it. I think after a period of mind numbingly boring revision it’s important to get your mojo back and get some new inspiration. February is always a time of running out of winter outfits that aren’t exactly the same as what you wore yesterday and seeing the new S/S14 collections role out on the catwalks and blogs doesn’t help with the feeling that you’d rather be somewhere just a little warmer.
I’ll be on a plane back to England this time next week, after a short trip to Berlin. Hopefully I’ll be able to share all of the amazing vintage finds I’ve uncovered there, I’ve been doing plenty of research on vintage shops so fingers crossed it pays off! I should be back in ol’ Blighty for about 4 weeks so if you’ve got any good events on your calendar then do share – I’m hoping to get lots done before I head back over here at the start of April.
Well I shall leave you all with a few articles and blogs that have cheered me up recently, enjoy!
1) I shared the following article on Facebook a week or so ago, written by Solanah of Vintage Vixen this is now one of a 3 part blog about an evolving vintage wardrobe that is becoming, well, less vintage!
2) And now two articles written by the lovely Ruby Armoire about perceptions of vintage clothing and just how ruddy good they can make you feel…
3) I read this post by A Brighton Belle whilst curled up in a ball of self pity and it didn’t half cheer me up. It’s easy to forget how wonderful ‘home’ is and there’s nothing more beautiful than hearing old stories from loved ones.
I’ve got lots of things in the pipeline, and the best bit is, I now have time to crack on with them all!
That’s all for now folks,
Miss B xoxo
