A Kiss-Blowing Bombshell, an Ice Cream Shop, and Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day has always been a bit meaningless to me, not for lack of a Valentine, just because I find it to be an arbitrary holiday. That being said, ever since I stepped into the pinup world, I can't help but get more and more excited by the idea of Valentine's Day due to the [...]


Polka Dots, A Summer Dress, and A Hazy Shade of Winter

It's safe to say that we've had a mild winter here in New England, which means it's also safe to assume that I can still wear my summer dresses in the midst of my least favorite season. I'll give winter this much- it really is beautiful in it's own way, but after months of nothing [...]

The only things missing are freshly baked cookies and some vintage ornaments-- but [...]

A Very Kitschy Christmas and A Happy New Year

It's that holly jolly time again when Christmas is around the bend and everyone is putting up their tree-- wait, maybe that's just me.
