Hi there, I’m Courtney, the girl behind Retro and Thrift. My style has changed throughout the (almost) 5 years of me running this blog, but one thing seems to have remained constant – my love for retro-inspired fashion and lifestyle.

I’m a potty-mouthed 21-year-old girl from Lincoln, who has been living in Hull for the past 3 years. I recently graduated (with a first class in history, if you’re interested) and I am now a freelance copywriter and social media manager. You can find out all about that here.

I like to keep it real on my blog, but I try to keep my incessant swearing down to a minimum and retain a positive attitude. Here you’ll find all the best bits of Courtney, some not-so-great bits, and just some plain honest bits.

Since graduating, I’ve also become a lot more involved in the blogging scene, recently co-organising a #HullBloggers event, which seemed to be a success. For 2017, I’m working on the #HullFoodie project with another blogger to showcase what delicious cuisine the Hull has to offer during its year in the spotlight as UK City of Culture.

In the meantime, I’ll be here, blogging about my everyday life with a retro-inspired twist.
