For many this will be their first week back at work, how was it?
Over the Christmas holidays I spent a lot of time with the internet and I did a lot of surfing. Which I adore. No intentions, just jumping from link to link. I am a huge history buff, as some of you may know. It really rocks my boat, and living in London means I get to be surrounded by it all of the time. Woof!
( any excuse for Blackadder on my blog)
A few people I have spoken too recently have shared an interest in it too. I love that about hobbies. Some of them are so intimate to us, such as baking, and sewing that unless you share the spoils, you actually enjoy the experience on your own.So we all exchanged good websites and secret historic passions.
Here are some of mine.
I LOVE historical fashion. I could just lay back and bask in it. Recently this interest has started to lean towards a curiosity in the making of the clothing it’s self. I may even have a go at creating something. Until then, here are some places where I get my fixes.
Tudor Dresses interest me the most, and this wonderful lady makes some amazing creations – Tudor Dreams Historical Costumier
I can’t believe how well made those items are! <3
I also enjoy a visit to Cozy vintage corner over on facebook. This is one of my favourite dresses. So beautiful.
I am an Anne Boleyn Fan and the Anne Boleyn files is a great source for information on all areas of life in that period and the woman herself.
Another historical fashion blog treasure is the Historical fashion tumblr
Madame Guillotine is a fab place where you can loose a lot of time learning about different periods of time by delving into historical tit bits. Two other great sites to mention ( and I previously have)are historical honey and History witch, Both are amazeballs.
I’ll finish up with a mention for the history chicks Whoot! whoot!
What about you lovelies, do any of you have any secret hobbies? Do any of you share mine? If so, make sure to share your pools of knowledge in the form of links below, I wanna find more 🙂
Until next time!
Love BP <3
