Time travel

Hello friends! I hope you are well :)

This post is very long overdue, I wondered when to actually post them until deciding that there's no time like the present! In the middle of May (which seems like forever ago) we took our annual trip to the 1940s weekend at Haworth. Every year the small Yorkshire town gets transported back in time to commemorate the second world war and to raise money for SSAFA. I thought I'd share a few of the photos from the weekend! 








The weekend is one of my favorite in the year! I love any opportunity to get dressed up and there's something about pinning my hair up  and wearing red lipstick that makes me feel a little bit glamours! My dress is from Forever 21, can you believe it!? I picked it up in America last year, my boots New Look and my brooch is vintage, bought at the weekend! There were also lots of vintage stalls and afternoon tea being served, I did buy a lovely 1950s summer dress but it does need a little alteration! Ellis was lucky that a simple pair of braces was all that was needed to transform his outfit! Next year I am definitely going to try and find a real 40s dress to wear! Although I don't think my modern outfit looked too much out of place? What do you think?

Shpock

Hello everyone! Today I'm going to introduce you to one of my favorite new apps! 



Shpock (Shop in your pocket - how cute is that name!?) is a new 24 / 7  app full of amazing pre-loved items in your area! Selling and buying is so simple, sorted by categories such as fashion, home and motor and also by distance its super easy to find one off unique items nearby! Launched over a year ago, Shpock has grown in popularity and now has over 3 million items for sale!




The app is seriously easy to use and I've discovered loads of amazing items that I cannot wait to purchase! Also, with Shpock you can also sell your own items, which is something I'm interested (but more on that in a different post!) Buying pre-loved or second hand items can help the environment and also your purse, I always think its such a shame when people just throw away perfect items which they no longer need and also Shpock has some items for great prices so you never know what bargains you'll find! 


My favorite thing about Shpock is the 'young designers' category, I loved finding undiscovered talent and let me tell you, Shpock is full of it! I especially love these designs from, Lois C. her makeup bags and headphone holders are beautiful and I can't wait to get my hands on one! There's also lots of handmade jewelry too which is something I love, some of the items are similar to ones on the high street for a fraction of the price! The best part? Its free to list your items! Way better than eBay and etsy! There is also a community feel to the app with chances to ask questions to the sellers and also make them offers on their items, I find this much more personal than buying items from a conventional shop as you get to find out the stories behind the items!


So what are you waiting for? Shpock is available on android and iphone
