Hi and welcome to my blog. I'm a scouse girl with a love of all things kitsch, cute and quirky. I have a ridiculous amount of love for photography, art, music, film, tv and reading. I will mostly be posting photos i've taken of various random things and reblogging stuff that catches my eye.
If you like what you see click the follow button and I'll probably follow back.
Most of the stuff on here are reblogs and cool stuff I've found around the net. Any photos that are my own are marked *
