Pinup shots of Empire Elegance Empire Elegance - Oriental Spice and some Chocolate
As you know I am a big selfie fan. However, I am always looking for diversity in pictures. So I like to be creative and “artistic” with my selfies as you may have seen on my social media channels. However, every now and then I get those vintage glamour photoshoot vibes. A few years ago, I already did a vintage glamour photoshoot. You may have seen a few of those pictures on Facebook & Instagram. This time I wanted to focus on a more pinup style. So that’s what I did. Where did I do my photoshoot and what are the results?

The oldies-but-goldies Christmas playlist

December 12, 2015 | Golden oldies | 0 comments

Bing Crosby A white Christmas movie 1954, Classic Christmas movie

It’s that time of the year again. The time when a certain someone will tell you a little story about how he gave his heart away last Christmas (will he ever learn?) and someone else only wants you for Christmas, which is nice but she told you that so many times. You should know that by now.

Yes, it’s December again and the most wonderful time of the year is coming soon. In my perception, Christmas is also the most nostalgic time of the year. We watch (old) movies with our family and friends and bring up memories. 90s kids who always watch Home Alone as a Christmas tradition, raise your hands! Also, we love to listen to listen to the (Dutch) top 2000 songs of all time. With a lot of classic hits and memories. Nostalgia all around.

There is no business like Monkey Business


Marilyn Monroe Monkey Business
A few days ago I had yet another Vintage meets Present moment. I actually have a lot of those. There was nothing interesting to watch on television – I also have a lot of those moments recently – so I decided it was dvd time: Classic Hollywood o’clock. Although watching dvd’s is also considered vintage these days. I was in the mood to watch a good old comedy that I hadn’t watched before, so I decided to watch the movie Monkey Business. So what kind of movie is it and more importantly: is the movie worth watching?

Vintage meets Present: Fascinating historical videos on Youtube


Vintage glamour Hail Caesar review post

There is something about the introduction tune of historical videos and news bulletins. It always has this typical very nostalgic sound and it makes me anxious for the rest of the newsbulletin. It gives me that you-don’t-want-to-miss-this feeling. I have the same with introduction tunes of Old Hollywood movies. I love it. That’s why I’m always intrigued whenever I see old (news) videoclips. You can imagine that I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that Vintage meets Present was about to be taken literally.
