A big shout out and thank you to everyone who has helped me out in anyway this month, especially to the sidebar sponsors and of course all you readers. Having sponsors means I can take time away from work to spend on making this blog useful - at least I hope you find it useful?
Michelle is the lovely, lovely lady who designed my blog header. Her rates are really reasonable especially considering how talented and understanding she is. She even translated my chatter into something beautiful.
Current love: My blog header. Ooh it makes me happy every time I see it. I also love the branding she did for High Tea Cast.
JELLY BUTTON JEWELLERY
Gorgeous, fun and kitsch jewellery at ace prices. I'm currently eyeing a few pieces to stash away for Christmas gifts and if a few should fall into my shopping basket we'll just keep quite, yeah?
Current swoon: Need I say more than Jammy Dodger hair slide?
WELL ROUNDED RETRO
Whilst it is getting a tiny bit easier to find high street clothes in plus sizes, finding plus size or slightly larger retro and vintage clothes is near impossible. In steps Well Rounded Retro with a fantastic selection of clothes in larger sizes. Joy.
Current swoon: This dress, oh me oh my.
Has the olympics sprured you on to run around and get fit? This blog is run by my lovely, long time internet friend and I can highly recommend reading her journey through fitness because not only is she great fun but she also writes interesting and relvant stuff without being all holier than thou.
Current love: Colour blocking and looking good whilst doing sport? Who knew such a thing was possible?
FRIVOLOUS MRS D
Gorgeous girl, gorgeous clothes, seriously gorgeous hair - hair envy is alive inside me when I read this blog. ENVY. Elena is a crafty, retro type living in the middle of England with her *cough handsome cough* husband. She is badass at nail art too. Cool girl.
GLADRAGS AND HANDBAGS
Mel is a sweetheart and gawjus, she really is. She is a member of the body acceptance community which really interests me and makes me feel a bit better about my heft. Her blog covers crafts, fashion, general chatter and tips.
BRIAR ROSE BEAUTY
I actually met the lovely lady behind Briar Rose Beauty earlier in the year and to say she is one of the sweetest people I've ever met would be an understatement. She is so, so nice and not to mention kind and helpful. Her blog covers beauty reviews and lifestyle chatterings and recommendations.
If you read my Saturday Savings posts you'll know I'm crazy for a bargain and discount code. Discount Coder help me on a weekly basis to put together those posts and I can tell you that helps me no end. So if you've used a code it may well have come from these guys (say thanks!) - check out their site because they have loads more deals and discounts over there.
I think the title of this blog really gives away this topic, this a blog based in Manchester, about Manchester and about vintage. Posting reviews, alerts and details of vintage shops and events across Manchester. A really useful space on the web.
The sweetest and prettiest handmade little accessories starting at around £3.50. I'm growing my fringe out and currently coveting ALL of the hairslides.
The lovely, lovely FEE co-owns a cakery daaan sarf and posts on her blog about all manner of things from budget recipes, owning your own business all the way through to vintage and beauty products.
The lady behind this online shop moved to France a few years ago and finds incredible items from estate sales which she sells on at really, really good prices. Most everything she stocks gives me a case of the wantsies.
THREE JELLY MOULDS AND A WARDROBE
Sadly, this shop will be closing very soon. The seller, one of the nicest people I've met online, has a keen eye for vintage and retro items - I highly recommend a peek before it is no more.
Fab chatter from a fun lady including DIYs (currently a great one for bunting), videos, recipes, finds and just general ace-ness.
Thank you to each and everyone! I really mean it.
