My big fat greek Holiday!


Well I'm back from my incredible holiday away in Kefalonia, Greece. It really was an incredible and unforgettable holiday and a truly special one too! I took an insane amount of outfit photos which will be coming along soon, but for mean time here's a little taster of mine and Jonathans holiday. We have a tradition of making umm less conventional holiday videos. We hope you like it! x

Cinna-Snaps April/ May

'Cinna-snaps' is going to be something new I'm going to introduce to the blog. I've been thinking about it for a while now as I'm forever taking photos.

Whether I'm out walking on my way to work or something simply catches my eye on my adventures I love to capture it. I thought i'd share some snaps with you. Think of it as a photo diary.

It'll be a mixture of things some from my camera and some from my Instagram- Which you can follow me at 'beccatantastic'. Some photos tell a story and some don't need an explanation. I'd love to know what your favourite one's are and thoughts. Enjoy x

Visions of our love pass right by me

Something a little different today on the blog. Head to toe (well almost to toe) in vintage. This dress suit belongs to Gill Jon's mummy and it's just fabulous. I remember when me and Gill found it last year at Twinwood Festival and it was in incredible condition. I am so excited to be going again this year with my best girlies Holly and Kayla. If you want to see some of my adventures at last years Twinwood Vintage Festival click here and here.

Which brings me to my next little ask of you all. You lovely readers of The Cinnamon Slipper. Who I treasure and am forever grateful for every wonderful comment and e-mail I get from you. It really does make my day to see I'm not just talking to myself out there in the ether!

Now I do get a little embarrassed these days when having to ask people to vote for me for certain things. It's a really strange thing I've done it before dozens of times in the past for presenter video competitions and I've never really been that lucky at it. It usually results in me being a little disheartened. Alas! I've entered myself into this years Twinwood Festival 'Miss Vintage UK' competition.

So to win or be in consideration for Miss Vintage UK at The Twinwood Festival, Would be quite marvellous! I'm not going to lie winning a lovely cheque (which would go towards mine and Jon's house deposit fund- which is coming along very slowly) and the chance to choose some lovely clothes from Viviene of Holloway would be just well....brilliant.

So if you could ever so kindly simply click this link here which will direct you to my photo entry and click that lovely 'like' icon and like my photo and also please 'LIKE' the Twinwood Festival Page too (for the vote to count) so I'm in with my chance to be in the top 20.

(I've got a lot of catching up to do!) that would be so very much appreciated.

As always thank you for your constant love and support it really means a lot to me.

Not to take a trip to negative town but looking back at these photos when I was editing them I really made a mistake. I did question myself when I wore it on Saturday but Jon kept saying how lovely I looked and maybe I was just feeding off that. I can now say I was wrong and this style of dress is totally all wrong for my body shape. I look pregnant in some angles. Just to be clear I'm not!

I picked this Topshop dress up for a mere £2 from the cat club charity shop. You know, doing my bit for the cats and my wardrobe I figured why not? And it's Topshop so in theory it is a bargain. I've been after a white dress for summer and it seemed like a great idea in theory.

Alas this dress is going to be sold a la eBay this week! Even so, the weather was simply divine that day and I got to bring out my lace parasol once more which I LOVE, especially when I don't want to wear sunglasses. Magic. X
