Adoring all things vintage, retro and downright quirky

As a fan of red lipstick, I am constantly on the search for the exact tone to match my skin, and I am pleased to have found Rockalily Lipstick! Set up by Ree Ree Rockette, Rockalily Make-up was created after she got sick of hunting for the right shade (I feel your pain Ree Ree!) So if you hanker for that foxy 1950s look, get over there!

I have a feeling I’m a Rockette Red – but which are you?



The art of letter writing is somewhat on the wane in this modern computerised world, but oh, how I love to send a card, a letter or simply scribble down my thoughts. So to breathe new life into letter writing, why not buy some new stationery – you never know, you might get a letter back! The Spring bird card above is £5 from Papermash.

I love quirky things and this sausage dog notepad from Anthropologie made me titter! £10

What about a card that’s a box, that’s a cake box card type thing? Cool huh? £11.50 from Present and Correct.

Bring back the old school paperweight I say! This here pretty little one is from Papermash is £22.50.
