I’ve been a little absent from blogging lately. Although I love writing and sharing on here sometimes stuff just gets in the way. I’ve been busy with the girls and our project to get the garden done has kept us really busy. While I’ve been away from the blog I’ve been thinking more about regular features for the blog. The Vintage Frills Wishlist is a way for me to bring together everything I blog about including vintage fashion, beauty, books, days out and history. At the moment I’m not going to set a particular day for the post I’m just going to try and fit it in every week.
The idea is to create a list of my favourite things and things I would like to buy, do or read.
Fashion – As I have mentioned loads of times before I am in love with the clothing label Love ur Look. Their range is totally vintage themed but designed for modern women. I love the exaggerated details like huge buttons and big collars which really compliment the vibrant fabric prints. I love this Check Print Collar Dress which is £56.50.
Beauty – I’ve heard great things about Soap and Glory Firminator and with summer on its way and the possibility of wearing shorts this is top of my beauty wishlist. All you do is rub it onto your thighs and bum after having a shower and after a few days you should look more toned. I’m always a little sceptical of firming products but the reviews on this one look good so I’ll definitely be giving this one a try.
Books – I am really excited to get my hands on a copy of Sarah Moore’s new book Vintage Home. I loved her first book and I love her unique vintage style. I already own so many vintage home books but this one can’t be missed and I know it’ll inspire lot’s of little projects around the home.
Days Out – With the weather getting nicer I am looking forward to an outing to my favourite place – Claremont Landscape Garden in Esher, Surrey. I love to take the girls there as it’s the most stunning garden and it’s packed with history being attached to the former home of Princess Charlotte.
Home – I love these retro themed storage canisters from Matalan, they remind me of Orla Kiely prints. I’m not sure they would fit with my kitchen but I’d like to use them to store stuff in my utility room. At only £5.00 each you can’t really say no.
