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 (:

summers coming (:

so happy about all of this lush weather at the moment.
everyones getting out their summer clothes and its just a much happier more colourful time of year.
my attempts at being 'summery' went a bit wrong when i used fake tan the other week for the first time, streaky! maybe i should just stick to 'pale and interesting' hmm ...

i've also been working a lot on the website recently to get more summery things up so keep looking over the next few days for even more summery goodness!

meet louise.

i've mentioned her before but have never dedicated a blog to my favourite artist Louise Dear.

She is a free spirited woman who aged 21 bought an old ambulance, painted it pink and travelled round the world with her boyfriend for seven years. jealous!

isn't she amazing!?
and this is my favourite piece 'yum yum' (:

'my fabulous adventures continue to inspire my work creating paintings which are vibrant, passionate and full of romance.
ideas & inspirations i learnt from the beginning; to walk barefoot on the grass. to hear the melody in the crashing waves or the woodland leaves rattling in the spring breeze.
to be caressed by warm sun on bare flesh and absorb the colours of the sunset whether reflected on wet shores or urban landscapes. the blossoming of a bloom, the patchwork fields and the delicious smell of my lover snuggled next to me.
these sensations absorb me and feel like melted chocolate trickling down the back of my throat.'

check out more of her work on her website, its well worth a look!

jane eyre

another of my all time favourite books,
its just so romantic and lovely!


“do you think i am an automaton?  a machine without feelings? 
and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? 
do you think, because i am poor, obscure, plain, and little, i am soulless and heartless? 
you think wrong! i have as much soul as you and full as much heart! 
and if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, i should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you. i am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh: it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God's feet, equal — as we are!” 

“it is a long way to Ireland, Janet, and i am sorry to send my little friend on such weary travels: but if i can't do better, how is it to be helped? are you anything akin to me, do you think, Jane?" 

i could risk no sort of answer by this time: my heart was still. 

"Because, he said, "i sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you - especially when you are near me, as now: it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. 
and if that boisterous channel, and two hundred miles or so of land some broad between us, i am afraid that cord of communion will be snapt; and then i've a nervous notion i should take to bleeding inwardly.
 as for you, - you'd forget me.” 

oh, i love it so much
