My very 1st Blog Award!

The beautiful Wendy from The Butterfly Balcony has kindly awarded me with my very first Blog Award! Woop Woop!

Please go pay her a visit, her blog is full of reference material and her own trials of trying out all things vintage. Always an interesting read and one of the blogs I visit the most. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for her next instalment on Vintage Beauty from 'The Modern Girls Beauty Book' from 1938 :)

So, as tradition states, here are 5 things about me you might not know:

1. I too wear glasses. I love my vintage 1940's glasses, but I don't tend to wear them much, so it is very unlikely you will catch me wearing them in any posts, but here's a little peak for those who want to see them:

2. I am a dirty smoker. Yes I am. No excuses, I know it's bad for me, but I do enjoy a Cider in the sunshine with a dirty fag in hand. 

3. I burn with Factor 50 sun-cream. Yes, very sensitive skin, and I shall never tan, but I'm pleased with the idea of growing old the graceful way :)

4. I love cheese. Really, really love cheese. It's a bit of an ongoing joke amongst my circle of friends. Whenever I invite them around for dinner, it is guaranteed to include cheese. Most likely in the form of a Cheese Fondue or Raclette. For someone who is supposedly lactose intolerant, I can stuff cheese down my throat til the cows come home (get it, get it?!?) Evidence below:

5. I take Crazy Golf VERY seriously. I think I may have scared the Mister a little the first time I dragged him out to the course along the seafront. On our recent trip to the Isle of Wight, we managed to squeeze in no less than 6 games of Crazy Golf. Love love love!!!

I now get to pick my current top 5 blogs to pass this honour on to :) as Wendy mentioned in her post, you do not have to accept them if you do not wish to, but I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy reading all your blogs and how much I learn from you all, so thank you thank you thank you!

Thank you all, you brighten up my day every time you post something new and exciting up :)

If you wish, share the love with your top 5 bloggers and pas it on! 

Much Love and happy blogging,
