It’s been an odd couple months with my plantar fasciitis and piriformis syndrome impeding my ability to shoot outfits as regularly as I usually would, so I thought I’d share with you some of the new things I’ve been trialing or enjoying lately that have become some of my new favourites. From makeup and skincare to footwear and audiobooks, it’s a mixed bag of fun!
There are plenty of things I love that don’t get covered here on the blog because I don’t feel they warrant a full blog post or I just haven’t found any other place to sensibly ‘put’ them, so to speak. But since they’re things I adore and feel others would enjoy, it seems a shame they never get any share time. So, considering that, I’ve decided it might be nice to create a series for them on the blog in which I can occasionally share my favourite things of late, from books and movies to new websites I’ve discovered, music I’m obsessed with, accessories I’ve been wearing to death, maybe even food I can’t stop eating (no, don’t worry, that last one is super unlikely. Or is it?) Continue reading
It’s been a long time since I’ve done an edition of my newly discovered makeup faves, but there hasn’t been a lot to update you on as I’ve been mostly using my favourite products from the last editions on repeat. I have found a few good new products here and there, though, so it’s finally time for another round.
Being a pinup, you don’t often find inspirations for enhancing your pinup look when you glance around in your day to day life, at work and on the street. It’s easy to idolize famous goddesses like Dita Von Teese, but let’s face it, that woman is on a level all her own. The wonderful thing about the vintage community is that you can befriend and socially follow fellow pinups all over the world, women who don’t have the access to high-end designers and vaults of vintage couture that fame affords, yet whose vintage style is so flawless that it gives you new ideas as to how to branch out and perfect your own retro look. For me, I find a lot of my inspiration, support and all around fan-girl-obsessions online, especially through Instagram and fellow bloggers. Below are my absolute favourite ladies to follow, the women who inspire me with their style, beauty and creativity, but also with their big hearts and dazzling personilities. These are my fellow pinup inspirations.

My little sister from another mister, this fellow pinup doll inspires me not just with her flawless Hepburn style and beauty, but with her unwavering positivity and support. She boots my spirit, encourages every craft project I undertake, and shares my life motto that if you want to get all dressed up there’s not a single good reason not to. She’s a keen photographer, blogger, yogi and one of my favourite people in the whole world.
