About me

Occupation Receptionist
Location Oxford, United Kingdom
Introduction I am a huge Marilyn Monroe lover (hence the title of my blog), and i have been trying to emulate her hairstyles to no avail, darn it! I live in a lovely sleepy country village and i think i may be the only vintage fan in a 10 mile radius :) I'm into old 40s and 50s films and recipes from WWII, which never seem to turn out great unfortunately. I hope you enjoy reading about my vintage and non-vintage experiences on here. Please feel free to leave your lovely comments :)
