So another month arrives and like everyone, I'm just left wondering where on earth this year is going. Actually where is my life going?! Deep huh? Time is going worryingly fast.....
I was planning to do an 'October on Instagram' look back post at the start of the week just gone, but before I knew it the week had vanished and now here we are in to the second week of November so I thought I'd do a look back at the week instead.
It's been a busy old week indeed. I visited Great Yarmouth. I love the coast and we're so lucky that Norwich is close to lots of varying seaside resorts. Yarmouth is just a 30 minute train ride away and although it's not up there with my favourite seaside places it was perfect for some shots for a project I'm working on.

It's a very tired resort but I've had many lovely visits over the years. I always think seaside towns have two personalities, the out of season one for Yarmouth is perhaps more earthy and gritty than some of Norfolk's other offerings.
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you may also have spotted that the Norwich Fashion Week team have a new group portrait thanks to the super talented Andi Sapey. I think I changed outfits about 5 times before settling on the first plan, which was a pair of Topshop dungarees, a polo neck and socks and sandals for a kind of relaxed seventies vibe. We're going to be sharing more on each board member as we count down to the next Norwich Fashion Week in March so watch this space.
I've spent a lot of time this week trying to get my head down and throwing myself in to uni work and all the other stuff I need to get done. This means I've been doing a lot of sticking my head phones in my ears and going in to what I refer to as 'the zone'. Now my husband has been encouraging me to appreciate the music of Scott Walker for the last seven years and this week for some reason decided to give him another go (Scott not my husband) and I actually found myself enjoying it so perhaps it was just a timing thing and I needed to just be in right place to give in to Scott's deep rich tones....
Although this tune has also been on repeat a lot - it's a very good soundtrack when you're running from A to B in a super hurry!
This week Dotcomgiftshop kindly listed Missy Vintage in their top 14 vintage blogs - it's a great line up of bloggers so it's lovely of them to include me in it!
My blog also ended up in a top 50 fashion UK blogs on rebateszone.com and the week that's just passed also saw Dr Martens have very kindly make me part of their blogger programme which is both wonderful and dangerous...I'm hardly out of DM's or converse these days. The Flora boots which I wrote about here have been great for the rainy days we've had this week and I'm lusting after all the DM tartan scarves so I might ask Father Christmas for one...
The Vintage Show plans for Norwich Fashion Week are well under way and a few days ago I had a meeting with Stylist Karen James Welton to begin a plan of action for the shows promo photoshoot which we'll be shooting next month.... but I won't be able to reveal too much until the images are released in Feb 2016! Exciting things are being planned though I promise!
Because I'm so rock and roll I'll be spending the final hours of Sunday drinking hot chocolate and reading Vogue in an attempt to end the week with a little relaxation time. Good luck with the week ahead everyone!
