Hi! My name's Izzy. I began this blog in my first term of university, so just over three years ago now! I feel Vintage Beauty xox as a name is lacking in originality; but I was so desperate to get my online space up and going at the time that I picked quickly. I actually love the name now as it takes me back to that feeling of being so excited that I was becoming a blogger! Also if you read out the 'ex, o, ex' it feels like you're in Gossip Girl- never a bad thing.
I'm a Creative Writing BA (Hons) graduate working in a traditional, Kentish secondary school and hoping to train as an English teacher. I have previously been Yumi's guest blogger for a year and a half, had a few proud comments in Grazia's You The Fashion Jury, and interned for Closer mag.
I write my little blog for fun only. You will see an eclectic mix of content on here; my sometimes terrible attempts at cookery (though I try so hard, I promise!), the odd book review, hopefully a good dose of Primark hauls in the new year (my Mum and I have an unhealthy obsession) and a lot about my favourite labradoodle in the world, Genevieve. I also have a new-born Etsy shop, influenced by my late nanny, selling vintage treasures, books and clothing pieces that I would love to own myself. Please feel free to chat to me!
