I am a huge fan of scarves, printed pretty ones in particular. I have some lovely ones for sale, plus two very special Liberty of London Vintage Silk ones too that I found during a recent trip. They really do brighton up an outfit, and so versatile too. After doing some research I came across this little video for some lovely hand drawn scarves that Liberty currently stocks...
Finding a good hairdresser is hard. Someone that understands your hair, what suits your face and that you feel comfortable chatting with can be difficult. However, I have been going to Hedonist in Manchester's NQ and the service you receive is brilliant. The interior of the store is lovely too, lots of calming wood and little birds decorate the area, the music is pretty chilled and the products they use are top quality. Michelle the owner totally appreciates how fine and wispy my hair is, yet she styles it so it doesn't quite feel like baby hair so much! I would definitely recommend going there, the staff are friendly and welcoming and I always leave happy!
All week the rain has poured, the Manchester clouds have been full of rain drops, covering the city. However, the sunshine is now shining, the clouds are almost white in colour and the sky is blue. I feel blessed, as tomorrow, CC Globe launches at the OUTDOOR Manchester Vintage Fashion Market and I think we may just miss the rain!
I am sorry to blog about the weather, but this week I have been watching the updates non.stop. So fingers crossed the sunshine continues and the Manchester skies do shine for my little stall!

I am so excited about the new Beauty Hall in Selfridges Manchester! The basement has recently re-opened with lots of new brands and products that I cannot wait to get my hands on. A huge fan of Jo Malone, they have opened their second branch in Manchester and you can get a complimentary hand and arm massage with their new delicious fragrance Wild Bluebell. Other brands include Tom Ford Beauty, Suqqu, Illamsaqua and many more. The floor also has a jewellery area and I think there are talks of a Patisserie too... Perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon I think!

I was so happy to receive a call off my close friend, just in the nick of time as I was about to spend money on mannequins. Starting out on a market stall is proving costly and my little weekly wage does not stretch far! So when I got the call saying three lovely models were about to be dumped on the doorsteps of the bin men, I jumped at the chance of cleaning them up and using them for my Manchester Market. What can I say, they are very well behaved, don't question any of the outfits I put them in, and don't mind being taken to pieces and stored in my car-boot!
I am really looking forward to Friday and Saturday this week at the Vintage Fashion Fair in Piccadilly. I have been working frantically away since I returned from HK, cleaning, hanging, pricing, merchandising and labeling, I just hope the weather doesn't ruin all my hard work...
At the moment none of the new items are online, so this will be the preview of the lovely new blouses, also have some great polka-dot printed trousers and cute Chanel-style jackets. Once I have some free time I will start listing some items on my eBay and Etsy accounts too.
Anyway, here are my ladies!
