IMG_6902-X3Welcome EVERYBODY,  to Moonchild Vintage Madame. A veritable curiosity shop, brimming with ideas and information on  fashion, hair, make-up, mental health issues, BOPO living and even reviews of the  adventures I sometimes take myself on!

A place full of witty anecdotes, personal stories, meanderings on everyday and current issues and choc-a-bloc with vintage and modern  lifestyle guidance.

I have adorned these pages with, what I hope you will find are, interesting, helpful and informative tips, tutorials and ideas, sprinkled with that extra vintage style. If you are in the market for vintage decadence, we have a page dedicated to vintage fashion and accessories for sale.

Let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Tamzyn and I am a thirty something teacher of English and Drama.

My love for all things vintage started from an early age when I was captivated by films from the 1920’s onwards and the glamorous stars that were in them. I was transfixed by the clothes, hair and make-up and wanted to recreate what I had seen on the screen.  I gradually learned how to perfect my look, taking inspiration from my favourites of the big screen, Greta Garbo, Vivienne Leigh, Marilyn Monroe were all thrown into the mix.

It is not just Vintage however that I include in my articles, I have also expanded my writing to include blogs about subjects I care greatly about, such as, Body Positivity, Inclusion and Diversity. I have now also included blogs on my experience as a Gastric Band Patient. You can find these in the drop down menu entitled ‘Confessions of a Gastric Band Patient.’

I felt it urgent and important to start writing pieces that surrounded issues that can massively affect us throughout our lives. I couldn’t stand by and watch the next generation be all consumed by trying desperately to live up to the unrealistic image that the mainstream media portrays. If my blogs help even one individual to feel more comfortable in their own skin then I will be overjoyed.

Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my scribbling. Please follow, comment, like and share and let’s hope we can make a difference in a world that needs lots of small voices, chanting in unity, to make a big sound.

Happy Reading you gorgeous people!
