Ballet Shoes

Oops, ok so it has been over two weeks since my last post, but to be honest nothing very interesting has been happening of late and it has felt like all I have been doing is work, work, work. But I think this weekend may have helped get me out of my own little rut, as I finally left the bubble that is Keele Uni and went to visit my antie and uncle and baby cousin; it was so nice to see them as I don't normally get to see them that often as they live quite far away.

Anyway, while I was there I just happened to put the T.V. on and I found the film Ballet Shoes was on. I decided to watch it, as I have recently rewatched what I thought were all my vintage themed DVDs, but as I do own it on DVD I obvously can't remember every DVD I own, which is bad because when I am at uni I have to get my parents to bring some of my DVDs to watch each month. Pointer for the future, memorise DVD collection :p

But getting slightly off topic, I just wanted to recommend Ballet Shoes to anyone looking for a light hearted, family film, whether your intersted in vintage or not.

So that's it for today, but hopefully more inspired posts coming this way soon.

New Dress

Just a quick post to show off my gorgeous new dress that finally arrived today. Well when I say today I mean it actually arrived about 3 weeks ago to my parents house, but I have had to wait for them to visit me at university and bring it with them.

It is a 1930s blue floral chiffon dress bought from the lovely Jill at Adeline's Attic on etsy. If only I had more money I would buy everything on there :p

I just love it and I can't wait to have an event to wear it to.

Exam Stress

Ok had a bit of a stressful day today, having had a test on the stratigraphic time table; why anyone needs to be able to memorise all the stupid words is beyond me. And I have found that the only decent stress reliever is a large bar of chocolate and a good episode of vintage T.V. (Land Girls being my series of choice today).

But at least my next exam isn't for a couple of weeks, so let the destressing begin.

First ever post

Right here goes nothing. For a while now I have been thinking about starting a blog after reading so many other people's lovely vintage inspired blogs, so here it is.

I first became fully interested in vintage in the summer of 2010 after visiting a 1940s weekend at Crich Tramway Museum, it was wonderful seeing all the vintage vehicles and reenactors, it was so inspiring. But before that I had always been intested in history after visiting National Trust properties with my family and watching many historical documentaries, so I guess it was inevitable that I would end up studying history after being surrounded by it my whole life.

So I intend to try and post at least once a week about anything vintage related going on in my life, anything that might be inspiring me or just generally anything I find interesting and think you lovely people might like to read about.

Have a lovely week,

Annabelle xoxo
