Returning From Vacation

Hello! I have not had the chance to post in awhile because last week I was in Mexico for February break. It was absolutely beautiful there, and very warm compared to here. My family stayed in Cancun but we did visit Chichen Itza and the Sacred Cenote. I thought it was absolutely fascinating to see the buildings that were still standing today after surviving for hundreds of years in the jungle. If you are interested in seeing some of the photos I took, just ask and I shall post my flickr account.

Today I felt like dressing very brightly, in order to persuade the snow to go away. Sadly, I do not think it worked. No matter though, it did manage to cheer a few people up.

I recently bought this cute 1960's dress at a thrift store when they were having a 50% off sale. It was an absolute steal at $2 on sale. It's made of wool so it does scratch a bit, but they always say beauty is painful.

Thank you for reading!

The Season of Love

Valentines day is here in three days, and in preparation I have been looking for cute valentines cards to give to my friends. It is quite hard to find any vintage ones where I live, so I found some that would still work if you printed them out. Now I do recommend  using a thick paper to print them on just so they do not get wrinkled. A cute idea would be to tape some candy to them. Here are some of my favourites.

I hope you have an amazing Valentines Day, and make sure to spend time with your loved ones.

60's School Girl

Today I really felt like dressing up with a slight school girl vibe. I think I captured it quite well. The dress was a gift from my parents on Christmas. I wore it with black ballet flats. There are more photos after the jump.

Styling My Hair

Recently I have been quite annoyed with my hair, because I was not able to figure out how to style it in a vintage style. I have good news though, because I finally figured it out today. 

Now, when I had longer hair I would curl my hair almost as if I put the curl to the side vertically. Today I tried curling my hair in a horizontal manner and it worked! After figuring this out it took very little time to get the hang of it and I now have a new style under my belt. This is the end result.

This is not the greatest picture of the style, but I find it looks a bit like a bouffant once you brush it out. Would anyone be interested in a tutorial for this hairstyle?

I am really excited how this turned out and cannot wait to try it again! Well that is all today, I just thought I would update you on my adventures. Soon there will be another thrift store finds post, so get ready for that. Have a wonderful day!
