Recently a particular favourite of both mine and my mum's has been Home Fires, a female-led World War Two drama following the lives of women of the WI and others on the Home Front. We never missed an episode across the two aired series, and have been consistently entertained by the gripping plot lines. I also really enjoyed seeing the hair and costumes used for the characters which provided a great source of inspiration for everyday 1940s outfit.
Sadly, as of 11th May 2016, Home Fires has been cancelled, but a group of fans have begun a campaign to save the show, including a petition and #savehomefires hashtag, all supported by Fred the pigeon.. If you're also a fan and are interested in how you can support the campaign (including a link to sign the petition), you can find all the information on their website here.
Thanks to everyone who entered and I hope to see you all again soon!

Unfortunately I'll be unable to attend myself, but on the day you can expect 100+ stalls of vintage shopping, from the 1920s to the 1980s. There will be classic cars, live music, carnival rides, workshops, dancing classes, street food, quirky bars, hair and beauty and much more. New for this year, there will also be the opportunity to sip a piña colada in the sun on our retro tiki terrace or learn a new skill like letterpress printing in our drop in crafts workshops. You can also enjoy bingo on the lawn on the classic deckchairs or learn how to do the perfect ‘40s victory roll in the hair and beauty salon – the gents can also get a trim in the pop up barbers.
The Vintage Carnival is fun for the whole family with a traditional Victorian carousel and funfair games. There will also be hula-hoop lessons, vintage bus rides and crafts for kids.
If you don't manage to win a ticket in this week's giveaway, you can purchase your very own for just £6 in advance or £8 on the door, with concessions available. Tickets are available from http://buytickets.at/thevintagecarnival/53921.
The details, in case they're a bit small to see on the poster are:

My parents came to visit me for a couple of days recently, and one day of their visit we headed to the rose garden which is in full bloom and looks wonderful. I just got these red shoes which it turns out fill a surprisingly large gap in my wardrobe, so I was really pleased to be able to road test them in such a beautiful location. I like the way they pick out the red on this dress from Dolly and Dotty. I know the pattern is one that a lot of people would avoid for summer, but with it being quite lightweight and so pretty, I don't mind ignoring popular opinion.

Hi everyone! I'm super late getting this post sorted out because I've been so busy but I didn't want to leave it out so better l...
I did struggle with outfit photos but as I'd promised Vivien of Holloway I'd take some pictures of the clothing that I reviewed for them in In Retrospect Magazine's Dispatches, I roped in my PhD supervisor to help.
You can read a full review of the top and trousers in my piece for Dispatches (linked above) but I was really impressed by how little they creased (especially the trousers) even after they'd been stuck in my hand luggage and worn for two days which were mostly spent sitting down. Although I'd generally make sure my hair was done in a vintage style as in the pictures in Dispatches, it wasn't really a possibility for me time-wise while I was away, but I also think the Viven of Holloway items look really nice worn in a slightly more modern fashion which is created by the more modern hairstyle I'm sporting here.
I really enjoyed Budapest and I'd love to go back sometime for a proper holiday when I'm not confined to a conference. It was even my first time on a plane!
That's all for now, hopefully see you all soon... x
