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 (:

A little while ago i promised on my facebook & twitter that i would do a blog post on my interview in the quarterly magazine Carousel.
finally i have gotten round to it, yay! 

Carousel is a really lovely magazine with lots of wonderful things about fashion, cooking, thrifting, photography and vintage lovliness. The 'maker' of it is kirsty bridge, a personal style blogger and a fashion student. It was so lovely to meet her for the interview and she wrote such lovely things about my shop. 
Part of their mission statement reads  
'... Carousel has no hidden agenda other than to fill your world with a little more magic' 
and i think that sums it up perfectly!

It was filled with so many lovely features and i was really happy to be asked to do a piece.

i was so excited to receive my copy of carousel and you can get yours here!
