About Me

My photo
i own a little vintage shop on the south coast by the sea, or at vintagepersempre.com. im married and we have a beautiful baby girl. i like going for walks on cold sunny days and trashy reality tv. i love small boutiques, markets and big city centers. im slightly dyslexic so you'll have to ignore my poor spelling, and i rarely use capital letters. my music taste is so varied, from country to screamo, oh and musicals. i love song lyrics, pretty photographs and modern art. i have many guilty pleasures and im really not very cool. im obsessed with drawings and tattoos of birds, but im genuinely terrified of real life ones. i guess you can read on to find out more (:

is it fast enough so we can fly away?

you got a fast car,

i want a ticket to anywhere.
maybe we make a deal,
maybe together we can get somewhere.

anyplace is better - starting from zero got nothing to lose.
maybe we'll make something,
but me myself i got nothing to prove. 

you got a fast car & i got a plan to get us out of here. 
i been working at the convenience store, 
managed to save just a little bit of money. 
we won't have to drive too far, 
just cross the border & into the city. 
you & i can both get jobs & finally see what it means to be living. 

you got a fast car,
but is it fast enough so we can fly away?
we gotta make a decision,
we leave tonight or live & die this way.

i remember we were driving, driving in your car.
the speed so fast i felt like i was drunk.
city lights lay out before us,
and your arm felt nice wrapped round my shoulder.
and i had a feeling that i belonged,
and i had a feeling i could be someone, be someone, be someone.

whilst this song isn't strictly applicable to me at the moment,

not quite primark.

i found this really awesome jewelery designer at spittlefields about a year ago and just have to share some of their pieces. 

i love how totally unique some of their work is, plus they are genuinely affordable.


my personal favorites:

and i have this one:

final photo shoot by Aisha Green, and probably my favourite; land girls.


more by Aisha Green, this time in the library...

i like to be beside the sea.

since having the shop i've been contacted by a few young photographers who need to build up their portfolio.
the following pictures are by Aisha Green who is studying at Bournemouth university, 
all the clothes are original Vintage Per Sempre (: 
very proud.
