In a vintage shop's treasure chest...

By C.Elizabeth





As our trip to Canada is getting closer, we went to Manchester in order to finish buying little presents for my family. It can be a bit tricky as we want each find to be special but also practical to travel! Therefore, we haven't quite found everything... but we still have two and a half weeks.

Of course, now that I know where they are, I had to go to some vintage shops. I saw a lot of pretty things but nothing really took my eye except for a lovely hat. I wasn't looking for one but couldn't resist it when Andrew showed it to me. Luckily, it looked perfect with my outfit so I could wear it right away!

The hat fits you perfectly:)

You should really visit Greece if you have the possibility, it's well worth it! The people are so warm and welcoming, beautiful nature, interesting history, there is so much to see:) I have visited six Greek islands, and they are all very different from each other.
