First of all thanks for visiting, without you I wouldn’t be here.
So what can you expect here at Old Fashioned Susie?
What you’ll get from me is a down to earth approach to interiors and home style. There’s also a little bit of my personal fashion loves here, as well as the odd cocktail and vegan cake… Covering all the major food groups obviously 😉
I’m based just outside of Manchester and I really love my city, having lived here most of my life. There’s some fab posts about Manchester here on the blog.
You’ll find inspiration on how to mix old and new, vintage and high street, handmedown and off the shelf; To give you, and your home an individual and unique look and feel, just like you.
If you DONT want your home to look like something out of a showroom then this lifestyle blog is for you.
If you DO want your home to be a nest, a personalised retreat, something that reflects you, your likes, your travels, your history, your family, then stick around. You and me will get on well.
I’ve been blogging since 2010 and this is now my job. Creativity has been a theme throughout my life and I think I’ve finally settled on this writing lark.
I love brands that have heritage and will usually prefer a classic, timeless look over something that is “in fashion”.
If I work with a brand, it is always something I’ve carefully considered and it is always because I like the brand- and think you will too.
I do dip into trends of course, but I dont run my life by them, and like to pick and choose what suits me and/or my home.
I’m a bit of a perfectionist (some might say fussy mare!) but once I’ve an idea I like it to be just so, although I have learned to comprise when it comes to home renovations and actually what is possible with our budget.
My favourite social media channel is Instagram so you can always find me on there– come say hi!
In some posts I might use affiliate links which are a small way of me making some money. These links make no difference to how you view, or buy a product I mention, I just get a small percentage at no cost to you. I only mention products that I really like, and think you will too. I hope you can support me in my efforts to be as transparent as possible here on the blog.
I also do a weekly (sometimes fortnightly!) newsletter about what I’ve been loving/reading/listening too so if you fancy the sound of that sign up below.
