A no-nonsense Yorkshire redhead with sass and attitude.

I adore retro fashion, vintage photography and pin up art from the recent past, as well as pretty frillies, naughty knickers and images of a sensual nature. I also love quality tv drama.

There is nothing sexier than a handsome man in a well cut suit. For this reason this blog may also contain gratuitous images of the gorgeous Richard Armitage and Michael Fassbender.

As this blog may occasionally contain themes of an adult nature, if you're below the age of consent in your country, please unfollow.

I can also be found on twitter under the gise of @The_Retro_Rose

For people who don’t have time to bathe or access to fresh water, a South African college student has a solution: a shower gel users simply rub onto their skin. One small packet replaces one bath, and users never need any water. Ludwick Marishane’s inspiration was a lazy friend, but his invention will be a boon to people who live in areas where clean water is in short supply. 
The gel, called Drybath, kills germs, moisturizes the skin and exudes a pleasant, light smell, unlike hand sanitizers, according to Marishane’s website, Headboy Industries.  [Continue reading.]

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.
