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 πŸ™‚
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 Β£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!

I hope that all of my readers, old and new, enjoy reading my blog! Thank you so much for supporting me x

A few weeks back I put a poll in my sidebar, asking you what your favourite types of posts to see from me are. The most popular seems to be shopping hauls and money saving tips. I frequently get comments asking about how I get freebies, save money, and get good deals on my shopping, so I will try and do as many posts as possible on this kind of thing! If you haven’t already voted, feel free to cast your preference of blog post in my sidebar!
I would also like to thank those of you that do leave me comments, it’s very pleasing to hear that so many of you enjoy reading my posts on bargain buys. Some have said it is refreshing to read compared to others who post on designer goods, which not everyone can afford. So I’m glad so many of you have caught the money-saving bug! I have introduced a new ‘money saving‘ tag as well as ‘bargain buys‘ to my blog post labels, so you can read about it more easily.
So todays money saving post; Superdrug are offering free delivery on all online UK orders! This automatically saves you Β£3, as well as a trip to the shops. I like ordering my make up and toiletries online, if I already know what I’m looking for. This is because usually the shop will have run out of the shade/colour or item that I wanted, and then I usually end up buying an alternative that isn’t quite what I actually wanted, therefore wasting money. But by buying online, I know what items I want, and I can simply add them into my virtual basket, and have no hassle of queues etc. This obviously isn’t as easy if you’re wanting to swatch cosmetics etc, but you can always have a quick Google search to view swatches and reviews from beauty bloggers.
Superdrug also have some great offers on at the moment, including on cosmetics, but especially good deals on general toiletries. They’re offering a Β£2 saving on Revlon Just Bitten, 2 Barry M polishes for Β£5, and great discounts on skin and hair care products. Whenever Superdrug offer free delivery, I like to stock up on the items I use up most if they are on special offer. I have a large collection of shampoo, moisturiser, razors, face wipes etc that I’ve bought whilst they are on special offer, and I keep my cupboard stocked up. This usually saves me about 50%, as half price deals and buy 1 get 1 free deals are my favourite! So there’s good savings to be had, and you will never be ‘caught short’ when you’ve used up your last face wipe the night before.
Also, don’t forget that if you are signed up to Quidco, you can claim 5% cashback! To read more about Quidco, see my previous post.
Here are some of the deals on at Superdrug at the moment:
How much do you think you could save if you bought all your toiletries on special offer?
