Ahh New Years Eve. It's funny looking back on my Facebook memories shows I have always hated this day. I'm a big ruminator, and naturally a pessimist, so this time of year always has me sitting and reflecting on everything that went wrong, rather than all the joy that was brought into my life. That's … Continue reading 18 Things for 2018
Once upon a time, there was this fresh face pinup model called Roxie Roulette. She modeled for events, reproduction brands and make up artists, but eventually she jacked it all in, and vowed to never to it again. She grew up to be me. Occasionally though along comes a company that manages to twist my … Continue reading Sparkling with Splendette
(Ahh finally! A blog about doing something in Bristol!) I first was taken to Flour & Ash by my lovely friend, Eeva, back in August.

Instead, I much rather fashion some form of front roll and ponytail-bun hybrid, which still gets the air of … Continue reading Simple Vintage Inspired Hair Style
Yawn! It turns out that five hours sleep is not enough for this 26 year old to function anymore. After a late shift at the craft beer bar I work at, it was a few hours shut eye before my alarm rudely awoke me at 7am, but it was worth it for my first visit … Continue reading Retro Festival – August 2018
Okay, so it's not strictly the beginning. I first started a blog when I was a teenager, but that fell by the wayside like so many other things.
