Autumn. The time when the leaves start falling on te ground. It rains and rains some more and…it’s also the time when I celebrate that I am officially getting older again! My birthday was on a Monday. As a personal tradition, I usually take the day off for some (family +) me time, but due to circumstances for the first time in my career, I went to work on my birthday. I celebrated my birthday on Monday evening with my family, but I have to say, I really like my personal tradition… On the Friday after, I went for dinner and drinks with some family members and friends in a very vintage meets present restaurant. So what does a Modern Vintage Gal get for her birthday? Check out a few lovely Modern Vintage gifts I received this year!

The days became longer again;
and just like that…a year had passed: It was Spring again.

As you may have read, when I finished the Spanish serie Gran Hotel, I was happy that there was yet another Spanish retro serie waiting for me: Velvet. A serie that is set in the late 1950s in Spain, with a serious ode to high class fashion of those days. Last week, I came back from my holiday and I couldn’t wait to watch the last two seasons. Season 3 and 4 were added to Netflix (Netherlands) on the 1st of August and I finished the final episode on the 5th of August. Yes, that’s how addictive this serie is. I’ve set my own personal binge-watch record, although now I regret that I didn’t spread my binge-watch pleasure over a …
