Hello New Followers! A Little Bit About Me.. ♥

I just wanted to say a big ‘hello’ to all of my new followers and readers! I thought I would introduce myself to those of you that don’t know much about me or my blog. It’s nice to do a personal post once in a while!
So, I am Victoria (or Vikki). I am 22, a university graduate and I live near Milton Keynes, in England. I graduated uni with a 2:1 BA Hons in Tourism Business Management, and I am currently working in a little cake shop. 
I am interested in all things vintage and shabby chic. I love cupcakes, florals, pretty dresses and anything nautical. I am also obsessed with tea cups, baking, and weddings. I’m love Cath Kidston too! So if you like pretty, girly things.. hopefully you will like my blog!
Victoria’s Vintage Blog started small in March 2010, I used it mainly as a place to collect photos that inspired me. As time went on, I started to use it as a little scrapbook of my life, posting more personal posts about myself. After gaining a sudden amount of followers I started posting a greater variety of articles, hoping to interest a wider audience, while still keeping it as my space. In summer 2011 I spent 3 months working in Disney World Florida so some posts about that on here too 🙂
My blog is mainly centred on the following topics: Fashion, Beauty, Nails, Bargains, My Shopping Hauls, DIY, Baking, and my Competition Wins.
I love fashion and beauty, and I often post reviews on my blog about new products that I have tried out, or do Outfit of the Day posts showing what I’ve worn. My style is very feminine and I only ever wear dresses or skirts! I keep my make up minimal and classical too. I have also just grown my nails, which has been a massive achievement for me as I used to chew them to the bottom! So now I do a few nail art posts too which I find lots of fun! 
I’m very thrifty and a bargain hunter when it comes to fashion so all my buys are always purse friendly. I don’t tend to splash out very often, and I like to rummage to find bargains on eBay, at carboot sales, and in charity shops. If you’re looking at finding ways to save your pennies, hopefully my blog will give you plenty of ideas on where to find good deals. 
I’m also really into DIY projects and baking. Cakes are a big passion of mine, and I love to bake and decorate (and eat!) cakes and cupcakes. I also pick up old, second-hand things from boot sales and give them a DIY overhaul to make them look like new again. This usually just means giving them a lick of paint and then sticking girly bits on!
I enter competitions online on a daily basis, and therefore I often have parcels arriving for me with some free goodies! I think that ‘comping’ is a hobbie that more people should definitely partake in. The results of this hobby are easily visible! In less than 3 years I’ve won almost £7000 worth of prizes. Most of the prizes have been fantastic such as designer clothes, a weekend away, and new electrical items. People tell me that my blog posts on my prizes have inspired them to start entering competitions themselves, and they have won things too!

    Hi Victoria, I'm Siobhan. I've been enjoying reading your blog for a couple of months now and love your fun style of writing and the things you write about. You have inspired me to start searching out freebies & doing some comping – I've won lots of little things already, so thanks for that. I am a fellow cat-lover – my Figs has taken to walking across my laptop recently when I'm getting comping obsessed & he's not getting enough of my attention! I love your DIY & baking posts especially. Thanks for brightening our lives with your daily thoughts and pretty things! x
