let’s get together (yeah yeah yeah)

I’m sure it’s no surprise to anyone that the fires of sisterhood are burning especially hot in me lately. Part of that energy is going toward forming new & deepening existing female friendships in my real life (or “meatspace,” as we nerds say), but part of it is definitely reserved for my amazing online community!

I mentioned on Instagram that I’d love to collaborate with other bloggers or brands this year – whether it be guest posts or blog swaps or style swaps or WHATEVER, if there’s a cool thing we could do together, I want to give it a shot! I value the community that I’ve found on Instagram so much, and I want to find ways that we can work together & support each other even more.

Semi-related, but I’ve been craving a dedicated blogging space for vintage/pinup gals…am I the only one who feels that way? (Or is there already one where you’re all hanging out without me???) A Pinup Bloggers Unanonymous, if you will. I’m part of several blogging related Facebook groups, but sometimes the constant focus on the business and the hustle tires me out. I’d love to have a sounding board with other retro gals on the blog scene!

I’ve also been thinking about having a vintage link-up…would anyone else be interested in participating in one?

Ahh…I don’t know if this kind of bloggy business post is interesting to anyone, but I always like to connect with other bloggers and thought it was worth a shot! Your regularly scheduled programming will resume after this brief message.

10 things you didn’t know about me

10 things you didn’t know about me

We’ve been on this internet journey together for like…four months now, kittens! Crazy! So I thought now would be a good time to get to know each other a little bit better. I’m going to share 10 things about me, which have nothing to do with fashion/vintage/pinup/anything this blog is officially about, and I’d love it if you’d comment and share a fun fact or two about yourself! Cuz who doesn’t like making new friends?


So without further ado…

  1. I’m a huge crime junkie. I love procedurals, true crime books, those insanely tacky reenactment TV shows like “Snapped!” and “Deadly Women!”, all of it.
  2. I’m super good at Candy Crush.
  3. I don’t really drink coffee, but I love Mountain Dew. Not for the caffeine, I just really like it.
  4. My favorite ice cream is Ben & Jerry’s Karamel Sutra.
  5. I like cats, but I loooooove dogs.
  6. I’ve never figured out how to put my face underwater without holding my nose.
  7. I was a theater kid in high school, and I still miss being on stage.
  8. I like to sleep buried in blankets, so I sleep with a fan on me all year round.
  9. I absolutely cannot handle spicy food. Not even a little bit.
  10. Neil Gaiman is my favorite author. He’s definitely the biggest influence on my own fiction.

Whew, that wasn’t so hard! It’s your turn! Did any of my facts make me think of something about you? Let me know!
