Oriental Spice and some Chocolate Modern Vintage Gal Birthday
Oriental Spice and some Chocolate Modern Vintage Gal Birthday

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! Read more

Vintage Diva photoshoot Hamburg end results merged

So this story actually started a year ago on a random summer day in June with my retro sister from another mister. We had a lot of fun that night, which included a lot of laughter, a lot of tapas and a cat. Like a lot of other days, we were dressed in modern vintage style and we also took some pictures that evening.

Summer passed;
The leaves were falling on the ground;
Christmas was around the corner again and we entered the new year;
I entered the new year with zero New Year’s Resolutions, a lot of Netflix resolutions and dreams about warm Spring and Summer days;
The days became longer again;
and just like that…a year had passed: It was Spring again.

I finished the retro serie Land Girls and was looking for another retro serie. So I started browsing and browsing. And browsing some more. Then a picture caught my eye.

It looked like vintage, so I was curious. Then I read the description. A guy goes undercover in a hotel to investigate the disappearance of his sister. Not the most exciting description, but I decided to give it a try. The first few minutes I had to get used to the fact that it was a Spanish serie and the serie started off slowly. But…I decided to give it a try. I wanted to watch two episodes to form my official opinion. Boy, was I wrong at the beginning. I was hooked after the second episode. Read more
