Dunham Massey

So a few weeks ago I mentioned that I was going for a walk… we went to Dunham Massey in Altrincham! There are a lot of lovely National Trust places near me and this is one I hadn’t been to before. It was lovely, but I still prefer Tatton Park!

Here are some pictures anyway! I hope that you like them…

Yes, I did wore a tie and bright pink lipstick for a walk, and yes I REALLY need to improve my ‘jump photo’, and no, Matt wouldn’t play and just stood there!

However I hope you like them, Dunham Massey is well worth a visit, and we will give it another go in Summer!

Stockport Vintage Village

Hello All,

This post is a little overdue… I actually went to Stockport Vintage Village months ago, perhaps December, I think. I love days like this, nothing makes me happier than having a wander around the past, I am pretty much convinced I was born the wrong era… no, this isn’t the usual cliché, I don’t want to go back in time and live in the Victorian times, too much disease for my liking, I want to go forward to when they have invented time machines so I can pop back to all of the different eras and experience them all!

Anyway… I digress! Stockport Vintage Village is held in the beautiful indoor markets which do in fact date back to the Victorian times, a must see on it’s own! The second Sunday of every month it is invaded by all things vintage and lovely.

Here are a couple of pictures from my day, I hope you like them

There was more than enough to see, do, eat, drink… you can even have your hair done! So I will definitely be going back!

Thanks everyone, speak to you soon

The Mothers Birthday

Hello,

Me again! The reason I have not posted too much of late is not because I haven’t wanted to, it is mainly down to the fact I haven’t been doing anything remotely exciting. I am not exaggerating.

The last 2 weekends have been filled with eBay… I am not kidding you! I have decided that I need to raise some funds and sell some of my stuff… but seriously HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE! I’m my first weekend I made about £85 which I think is pretty good effort so I will keep it up, but it is not a process that I could claim to enjoy!

We are planning a mini refurb on our second bedroom so have been planning lots of things for that too… my love for antique furniture will have to put on a back burner though for this room as it will be a purely practical room, I will show you some progress pics I think… yes I will! With that, I will leave this topic here and upload a ‘before’ post when we start properly on the project!

So the most exciting thing I have done in past few weeks is that it was the mothers birthday, my mum is like my best friend, I adore her so this is always an exciting night for me. We went out for a meal at a Thai restaurant near me called Siam Village. So, I took some outfit photos… please do not get excited… I am new to this, as is my lovely photographer Matt so they’re nothing special but hopefully I will gradually improve on this! I don’t know, I might even try to be consistent about whether or not to have the light on? What do you think?

TheMothersBirthday1TheMothersBirthday2

Hmmmm I have clearly done something weird with the colour again! I don’t have bright red hair! Anyway my jumper is from H&M, Hat is very old so I cannot even remember where I got this from. Necklace is from Primark and my skirt is from Topshop (this link is to the actual skirt).

Talking about my hair… I don’t think I have mentioned that I am on a looooooong journey, I made the decision to grow my colour out, which is not easy when it’s as long as mine is. My natural colour is now down to about my shoulders from the top of my head, the temptation to chop it into a bob is over whelming!

Anyway… that’s my random ponderings for this Saturday morning, I am going for another walk at Dunham Massey today (rock and roll hey) so more pictures of the lovely outdoors will more than likely follow!

 

Muchas Love – I will speak to you all soon
