i'm a bit late jumping on this bandwagon but i've become seriously addicted to Pinterest
. not only have i been goggling over wedding boards, food pins, DIY tricks which there are an endless roll of pins for, i've also found it really useful for style inspiration
. it's taken me many years to discover my own personal style, starting from my teenage years i've been a bit all over the place
with what i wear/how i want to look and trust me i've had my fair share of wardrobe disasters but i feel most comfortable in myself now. i shop mostly in charity shops which is a trait i've picked up from my mum, dragging me into every charity shop in site has had an obvious affect on me, mortifying at the time when i was 12 i've grown to love it, in fact i have become a bit of a shopoholic for charity shops. i'd say my wardrobe consists of mostly vintage items from 60's to 80's, staple item being a denim jacket.. or 5 and this is all tied together with a pretty ribbon or bow. when it comes to people there a small handful i go to for inspiration to bring together the whole 'look' i'm going for, one of these being lana del rey
. now if you know me well you'll know i have an unhealthy obsession with lana del rey; her music, her style, i'm obsessed
. she's the self proclaimed 'gangsta Nancy Sinatra'
i love the way she's taken a modern twist on the vintage (mainly 60's) era. my obsession for her also started my addiction of buying flower crowns (oops). she's one of the only icons i follow for fashion as i'm not really into the whole beauty & fashion thing, i love to look at the nice things other people wear such as this wonderful blogger
but it's not really my cup of tea, i don't wear much make-up and my purse doesn't accomodate for my shopoholic trait, so i'd be a fish out of water! but (as well as confessing my love for lana) i'm writing about the things i enjoy on here as well as trying to include a range of things, seeing as this is a lifestyle blog after all.
