Hi, I'm Michelle. I adore vintage and pretty things, and thus, the name "vintagetrinkets" for the blog.
I do actually have a day job besides the blog - I'm a corporate communications exec by the week, and baker/cook on weekends. I love to be in the kitchen, primarily to bake, rather than to cook, as evident from the many sweet stuff that I churn out frequently. As you might already have noted by now, I sorta have an insatiable sweet tooth.
I've never had any professional culinary training, but I used to secretly wish that I can drop everything and enrol in Le Cordon Bleu or some baker school of some sort. My interest in baking started during my university days in Aussie, since I had plenty of time at hand (what with my three-school-days-a-week semesters).
Besides pottering around the kitchen in my free time, I have a second hobby - photography. While I'm not a professional photographer by any means, I do love to play around with light, angles and subjects. Although my area of interest lies primarily in food photography, I also enjoy taking travel photography shots.
Traveling is another form of practice for photography for me. I've always loved traveling and have traveled to quite a few places (not as many as I would love to though!). I tend to make several vacation trips per year, to curb my constant wanderlust. The world is so huge, there's tons of wonders out there to explore! The blog is also a platform for me to share and document my travel logs through my lens so that I can look back and remember the fun times I had on vacation.
I hope you enjoy the reads here. Drop me a mail if you like! :)
