I've been hopping back & forth between France & the UK, with a quick trip to Germany for work in between! Sharing a few of my favourite things with you girls today; not only this gorgeous little chap called Archie with the most delicious big ears, but this cutesy breton sundress from F&F at Tesco, and these beaut cross-over flats from Primark. Oh and the roses too! Wishing you all a sunny evening wherever you are girls xox

 I've only been back from The Canary islands for a few days and already it seems like ages ago we were basking in the summer heat, watching the sun go down, wandering up and down little streets, smelling of sun cream and carrying a huge straw basket with all of our essentials in it.  Going on holiday two days after you move house is awkward to say the least- I was already living out of a suitcase thanks to work, before we even went on holiday, or moved house, and I felt so bothered by all this clutter and junk that we were carrying round in our lives that I literally packed five things for a week away... Two of those things were bikini's so I'm not lying when I say I lived in these lovely lovely aztec shorts from Primark. I picked them up about a month ago when I was staying in Birmingham for work and popped into the Bullring; one of those impulse buys that turns out to be your wardrobe staple; and they are a total bargain at £4.50! If you're jetting off to the sun I would highly recommend a pair for your suitcase. Happy weekend girls, more tomorrow! xo

Finally getting back to blogging- how I've missed being here and sharing bits + pieces with you girls- I'm so happy to be back! A lot has been happening in my corner; a new apartment (we've moved from Burgundy to Rouen), a much needed vaycay to the Canary Islands, lots of sunshine, exciting projects at work; I've been living out of a suitcase across multiple countries with no time to blog but plenty of time to think up dreamy new content and organise some lush collaborations to share with you all. So to start us off again I thought I would share with you some of the pictures I've snapped along the way this Summer.  There's heaps more of my Life Lately over on my tumblr so share in my summer getaway over there too. More tomorrow! xo

It's no secret that I'm a Rocket Dog girl at heart- you don't see me wearing heels very often over here, and that's because I dig comfy shoes; and so you can imagine my sheer delight with the grunge-chic, so practical-they're-almost-smart, chunky trainer trend that we've seen these last few months.  The eternal dilemma, though, through winter especially, is what do you wear them with?!  Socks and tights just feel wrong with anything that has a rubber sole, and so I for one am VERY happy that now the Spring is (almost) upon us, I can finally go bare legs with my skaters.  These lacey textured ones from Rocket Dog are brand new for Spring/Summer 15, and I am so excited to say that the lovely people at RocketDog have given me a pair in pink to giveaway! Just head over to my instagram to enter- all you have to do is follow rocketdog (find @rocketdogeurope), and leave a comment under a photo of these pink skaters! The lucky winner will receive these beauts just in time for Spring, aswell as a little goodie bag from me!
Good luck girls, hoping you all come over to Insta & enter! The winner will be picked in a weeks time (sat 28th March.) Find us on insta @vintagemagpies and @rocketdogeurope to enter!
Happy weekend xoxox

Well girls I have SO much catching up to do with you!  My blogging routine has been majorly interrupted in the last few weeks; I've been back to the UK for work, doing my 'real-life' job as a freelance Visual Merchandiser, and then when I came back to France, my Boyfriend popped the big question!!  I've had so much going on and I was so surprised by him asking that I am still floating around trying to get my head around it all! Obviously I said yes, and its only been a few days but I am super excited that we are going to tie the knot and become a family together.   That's about as far as I've got in terms of any planning whatsoever, but I was thinking I'll make a tumblr for the occasion and to store all my inspo so come back soon for that. Anyway girls thankyou for your lovely comments over on my instagram, I'm back in France for the next few weeks now, Spring has officially arrived, and i've got some exciting collaborations and outfit posts coming your way very soon! xox
