The Vintage Fair some ramblings and iphone pictures

So, the vintage fair is coming up in a few weeks and I’m rather excited!  Obviously, I dont have the shop anymore but my mom does and she will be setting  up there and I will be there to give a hand and ah hem…. (shop). Last year we had a great time at it, and for those of you living in Ireland, I suggest getting to Galway for the 19th of June! The fair is on in the Radisson check this link to find out more.

I have officially started my new job as FOH manager in Eight, bar and restaurant. I’m back to what I used to do and Im loving it. While I am a die hard fan of  vintage, the shop wasnt really working for me. I missed the more social setting of the bar/restaurant trade. Who knew? I’m sure a lot of it was down to the fact that it was just so quiet. Galway is really struggling at the moment, especially the retail side of things. A lot of business have shut down over the last 6 months, so at least I know we weren’t alone in our struggles. Anyway, onwards and upwards! The  vintage website is still going strong and without the stress of overheads, it was a bit of a no brainer to make the decision to close the shop.

So here we are no worse off and looking forward to what the summer brings!  I’m still trying to get into a routine that works for me and the blog, while trying to figure out the best way to take the blog forward. Im thinking perhaps some videos, on vintage make-up and hair styles? What do you think? Id love some suggestions!

Until then, I thought Id share with you some of my recent snaps taken with my i phone! Yes, thats right, Ive turned into one of them.  I am no longer interested in communicating with you unless you can tell me about the latest app. I’m kidding. Seriously….. Its a bank holiday weekend and Im mad excited!! Im going on a boat party, yippee …. enjoy your weekend folks, I know I will! X
