Altrincham Market- Vintage Weekend

Altrincham Market is on every weekend 10-4pm and I cannot believe I have only recently come across this cool quirky place!

Every weekend presents a different theme and this week was my all time favourite…vintage!

I have made a collection of my favourite photographs from the market and even if you go once do it, try it!

Think about it….you can go to  the usual boring pub or shopping centre any day…so try something different!


Always love food from a camper van!IMG_0627-0

I want one in every colour!IMG_0632-0


Vintage blazers…love these!IMG_0628-0

All these clocks are handmade , one of a kind from RS Clocks and Watches . The couple who make these are so lovely it was a pleasure meeting them. They guarantee to fix and replace any items bought – a very reassuring touch when buying a product from a marketplace. IMG_0635-0IMG_0637-0


I was dying to buy one of these but £35 for the plant and £45 for the pot was a bit excessive for an outdoor accessory. IMG_0634-0

One day my garden will look like this. Well. Maybe.IMG_0639-0

Now, i had TWO of these. Yes TWO! Who doesn’t like a pizza cooked in a wood-fire oven!



Well i will mot definately be coming back every weekend…why not? There’s plenty to see, plenty to buy and most importantly plenty to eat!


Make the most of it….

Here is a small collection of the items that made my day brighter and gave me a boost of confidence.

I recently had a baby girl and she’s now 3 months old. Everyday is wonderful but difficult at the same time. Do something that makes you feel good – release endorphins which will give you the power to handle a screaming baby, sleep deprivation and lack of food (babies seem to have a knack of waking up at the exact moment you try to make a snack!).


The one thing I would recommend to anyone who needs a little self-confidence boost is to get up, pluck up some energy and motivate yourself to do some exercise (10 minutes yoga dvd works wonders).

Summer Ready

Summer Ready

Put on your bright summer clothes, your statement jewellery pieces and  head to the park to soak in those sun rays. Put on that silly big hat and mix up those prints…. There are no rules about what you can and cannot wear anymore. Wear what you want! Be loud with your choices or be simple. Either way be yourself and be happy.
