Today, I stepped back in time to the 40s/50s for a few minutes to have my hair done in the 'Victory Rolls' which were a statement hairstyle in these eras. I had it done professionally by the lovely Melanie who was at the St. Gemma's Hospice Vintage Fair.  Melanie works for a Leeds based company 'Le Keux' which do vintage pin-up inspired hair and make-up for quite reasonable prices for special occasions such as hen parties and prom. They also do photo shoots too!

Today I went to the city of Nottingham to visit my brother who is at the university there. As a family we went bargain hunting in the vintage and charity shops in the city centre. We first came across an 'Oxfam' full of vintage and modern items from clothing to books and music. I thought the layout was really lovely and eye catching and I found a little something for my room too for only a quid! The manager happily let me take a few snaps and I wrote down my blog for her and I was on my way.

Next up we visited a shop called 'White Rose'. I really loved the display window as you came towards the shop I also liked the layout inside with the quirky little pieces such as the 'Temporary Bus Stop' sign which I just had to take a photo of. The shop had two floors: Upstairs there were clothes and pieces of crockery, handbags and homemade jewellery. Downstairs there were belts and more jewellery as well as wool and buttons in jars! The manager of 'White Rose' also let me take a few snaps of the shop and I wrote down my blog for her and I went to do some more bargain hunting.
I loved both of these shops and if you ever visit Nottingham I urge you to check them out!

I've been dying to try out the trend of 'studs' ever since this summer but I never got the chance and now that this trend is still rolling on into A/W I thought I'd give it a go! 

I had recently seen a packet of studs in a highstreet shop for a price that I wasn't willing to pay for. So, I opted for the cheaper option and headed to one of my favourite, and local haberdashery stores in Leeds. The type of studs that I chose are great for me because, I'm well known for hurting people with the most bizarre things and spiked studs that were also on offer, If I were to choose them, would be surely the most memorable way of hurting an innocent person. 

Anyway, I chose twelve studs  to begin with (as I can always pop back and get some more) for 35p each! I was a very happy customer with my new studs in a little paper bag and was very eager to get home. I decided to spice up a jumper that was from Topshop last year to make it more updated and, what I call, 'trend friendly'.

Overall, I think the results are brilliant and I'm very impressed with these studs and I will definitely be re-purchasing!

Today I went into town with my mum to have a nosey in the shops. It was just by chance we were wandering nearby and we spotted Up Staged Vintage. We had a look in and Lorna, the owner, very kindly said I could take a few photos. The shop is on two floors, downstairs there were men's and womens' wear, upstairs they sold Dr. Marten's - all of which I wanted to buy as I love Dr. Martens, especially for winter and they are good on the ice. I especially loved their cabinet of jewellery and compacts (pictured above) which was there when you walked in and it had some amazing necklaces. I really love this little boutique, and I wil definitely be visiting again.
