About Me

My name is Laura, I am a twenty-something vintage lover, trying to find more time out of work to dress up and feel more glamorous! 

I created this blog back in 2016, hoping it would encourage me to pursue my vintage passion. I am lucky enough to have my dream career of veterinary nursing but due to the job I am unable to incorporate a vintage style into my day to day life. My vintage lifestyle has really come along since then and I have found so many lovely, like-minded people!

I like to try out new hairstyles, reviewing products, and hopefully inspiring you to create your own style, as vintage style is so personal! I also have a YouTube channel especially for Anchors & Swallows, which I hope to be uploading on monthly soon!


Why do I love Vintage?

I have always loved old things and have a keen interest of history, especially war time. In my teenage years, I was (still am a little bit!) a punk rocker, I even had a pair of tartan jeans! I loved Hell Bunny dresses and through them I found the ‘rockabilly’ genre – I inherited my music taste from my dad and so I already adored The Beatles, Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly, the list goes on! As I’ve grown older, my style has developed I found I have a love of the 1950’s and a touch of the 40’s too!


I am married to my lovely, supportive husband Ross – we got married in 2018 and I wrote a whole post about it!
Our engagement was pretty special, we also have a love of music and as quite a surprise, he went down on one knee at a meet and greet with our favourite band Daughtry! It was so amazing and we are carried the music theme throughout our wedding day too!
