The Vintage Valley: 28...

The Vintage Valley

The personal blog of a vintage & goodwill shopper

Sunday, December 7, 2014


As the year draws nearer to a close and just before the Christmas craziness i also get to celebrate my birthday! Being a week before Christmas i dont usually celebrate in a big big way but a few champagnes and groans about my innability to get up off the couch quickly anymore or handle a night with too many Gin & Tonics is usually reflected on.

I was lucky enough to have my love take a few birthday photos for me on Saturday, i am so grateful he thinks me dressing up in a ball dress and blowing confetti all over the street is just as fun as i do!

I have already started thinking about my 27th year, how much i have grown and learned both in life and in love. I feel as if i have so much to see and many goals to tick off my "list" its such an exciting thing to feel as if there are endless possibilities and adventures just around the corner.

A few years ago i donated my birthday to Charity Water, an organisation i truly feel very connected to, after amazing support from my friends and family we contributed to the planning and development of a well in Ethiopia. This year i have decided to do the same again, if you feel so inclined you can read all about Charity Water and the amazing work they do or even make a small donation too!

Happy Monday! Xx
