Reflecting On My Blogging Journey

It caught me by surprise the other day when I got asked to do a Etsy Shop Review all thanks to the lovely Soph from Bamble Vintage. I was so honoured and always will be, but it got me thinking about my blog and how much joy it has brought me over the past 3 years. 3 years of doing something that I truly love, it will always be my dream to be able to this for a job but at the moment I'm loving the opportunities that come with it. I actually did my very first collaboration and I loved being able to do a review for someone else's Etsy shop. It also gave me great confidence in myself and I was very excited to start writing the blog post. Lottie's Lott has always been a place for me to share my love of Vintage and over the last year and so it has been a place when I can also share my love of fashion, beauty, lifestyle which is all based around Vintage so infact it is a great combination. I have learnt so much with blogging and I still like to improve things and make things look even better. 

Another thing that made me start my blog was my Instagram feed, if lots of you have been following me since Lottie's Lott began then you most will likely know about how I began posting vintage images; mainly Old Hollywood  Stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Lauren Bacall which expanded in the 1960's and how much I became obsessed with Twiggy and Pattie Boyd. Then I was lucky enough to get a record player for my 23rd birthday and went to choose which one I wanted a week before. I was over the moon and since that day it became my pride and joy and  loved it from then to the point where my room is pretty much surroiunded with vinyls. 

Instagram has changed a lot over the years but it is still my favourite app to use. I love being able to share my Vintage hero's and share a few fashion photos. I love anything quirky, different and retro. I guess you could say that's me in a nutshell. 

Funny enough here is my current feed at the moment. What do you think? I peronally love it and I hope you do too!

Thank you to everyone who continues to follow my journey on Lottie's Lott and my instagram! You guys are fab and I cannot thank you enough!! 

Here's to some exciting times (I hope)

Instagram Catch Up I What's Has Been Going On

The past month has been very hard and I have had to put posts on hold as I have had no time to do anything. I hated doing it but there wasn't much I could do. Everyone has something going on and at the moment I am about to start working at our brand new surgery that opens on Monday 19th March. As I am writing this post its currently two days before and it is all a bit scary and exciting at the same times as no one knows how it is all going to work out. A new surgery means finding new things of doing things and it can be challenging! I am hoping it will be good and once we get settled in everything will be okay.. things will take time becaue that is what always happens with change but its best to be positive! I can see my grandparents saying to me 'Keep Smiling Charlottie, everything will be okay' I know they'll be looking down on me as I start my shift on Monday. They'll be thinking another evening and hoping that my day goes okay because that was the kind of grandparents they were. They were loving, caring, kind and two of the best people I ever had in my life. They would give you some advice about something they had learnt when they were younger and that is what I loved about them. 

A few weeks ago I recieved the loveliest email from another vintage lover Sophie at Bamble Vintage who has an Etsy Vintage Shop and she asked me if I wanted to do a review of her blog.. I was so excited by the email I had too! What an amazing opportunity to support Sophie and her Etsy shop and something completely different for me to do. If you haven't seen my review of Bamble Vintage, make sure you go and check it out.. Bamble Vintage Etsy Shop Review. This month has a funny month because it was Mothers Day the other weekend and then two days later it was my mum's birthday. We had a good time celebrating but it was very strange as it was the first Mothers Day without my grandma. I know she was smiling down though!

Alice from John Lewis Beauty in Leeds also did my gel's again and I went with a gorgeous yellow colour and I absolutely loved them!! I know they aren't to everyone's taste but I loved them and so many people really liked them. Also I ended up getting these two gorgeous rings from And Other Stories - they come as a pair but a seperate rings but I love wearing them when I'm not working.

Bamble Vintage Etsy Shop Review

The other day I recieved an email from a lovely lady called Sophie from  Bamble Vintge who asked me if I was interested in doing a blog review of her Etsy shop Bamble Vintage. I was so delighted to think she had contacted me asking me to do a review of her Etsy shop and of course I was going to say yes! I have always been interesting in doing reviews for brands and small businesses but never really had the opportunity till now so this was just amazing!

I love blogging because it's such a great experience and it enables you to discover new shops and brands like Bamble Vintage because I most likely would realised that Bamble Vintage exsisted until now.

Here are some of the items that she has her on her shop, I actually couldn't help but the love everything that I was seeing. So it was very hard to pick out my favourite things.

As quite a lot of you know I love Old Hollywood so when I came across the
  Vintage Rhinestone Necklace. I was over the moon and felt like I was watching a old movie with Marilyn Monroe or Lauren Bacall in. Something else that caught my eye was the Pretty Vintage Summer Dress. Perfect to wear for the summer and the pattern is so flowery and cute. Of course that was just a few items that I picked out but as I had before I loved every single item.

I love Bamble Vintage so much as it is perfect for every single one of you! Soph has done a fab job over the last 4 years to create a wonderful shop! Make sure you go and check it out and don't forget it to show it some love!

Please check out Bamble Vintage it is such a great Etsy shop!
