Beat the Monday Blues Part 2

Beat the Monday blues by checking out something or someone we love. Here at Your Vintage Life, we feel it is important to share great finds with you all as well as support local business.

So this Monday, I want to share with you the BEST handmade hair clips a girl could ask for. Any one that knows me, will know I simply love a hair clip! We have pictures of me as a child with a blonde bob, a side parting and of course, a hairclip.

Too many years on than I care to share, I still have the same hairstyle and am still adorning a good clip. Having worked for Accessorize and Monsoon for 10 years I managed to collect a great range of flowers, diamantes, bows but never, ever a BIRD!

A few weeks back at one of Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fairs, we discovered Now, Voyager. Run by 2 sisters, Felicity and Jess, they are an online store who “believe every single lady has the right to look pin-up gorgeous everyday of the week and that right should be fun and affordable!” And boy to they do it with handmade birds, butterflies, flowers, boats and even knitted cup cakes all for your hair.

Their website is bright and fun..with great inspirational, 1950s feeling photos. It makes you want to do your hair and be a vintage pin up! On the website they say “style is conviction and we do not believe in compromise” and I’m sure you will agree from the styling of the site, to the bunting at their fairs to the fantastic photographs they stand true to this.

Their attention to detail is excellent, their pricing is fair and their sense of humour is huge with their tag line being, “Handmade glamour and silliness for your hair”. So if you want some fun in your life (and hair) this Monday then go check out the website http://www.now-voyager.co.uk

  2. Thanks for sharing Katie. I hadn’t come across the website before and it’s really fun. I really love those boat hair clips. It’s such an inspired idea and modelled to perfection too. It’s also great to see Anna Fur Laxis wearing one of their fascinator hats – she’s a friend of my sister and is one of the best burlesque performers around. She gets everywhere that girl!!! 🙂
