My Growing Obsession with Vintage Shirts

Oversized and sometimes slightly ugly vintage shirts are becoming an increasing part of my wardrobe and personality. I’m obsessed with clashing colours and flashy patterns on shirts and then pairing them with some jeans and sparkly Docs. As I fade fast fashion out of my life I’ve been shopping more on Depop and in vintage…

My Favourite Places to Plant Shop in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is such a wonderful place to shop for plants. There are so many independent shops across the city that sell hundreds of plants, pots and accessories. As a self-declared plant mama whose bedroom is turning into a jungle, my spending habits are somewhat encouraged by the abundance of leaves and flowers just waiting to…

Edinburgh’s Prettiest Mews: The Most Instagrammable Spots

Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever visited and I consider myself to be so lucky that I live here. I constantly take photos whenever I’m out and about whether it’s a planned photo walk with my camera or a quick snap on my phone when I’m running errands. As Edinburgh…

If I Knew Then What I Know Now

I don’t write nearly as many “progress update” blog posts like I used to so that’s a good sign right? It haven’t stopped trying to ‘better’ myself, it just feels like a significantly leas daunting task now. On occasion if I’m having a hard day, I write out my rambles that are weighing on my…

If you’re in a slight state of disbelief after reading the title of this post, you’re not alone because it’s been over six months since this happened and I still don’t quite believe it. But yes, I was scouted and asked to audition for a reality dating show in 2019 and given my current state…

The Music Keeping me Sane During Lockdown

When looking for something to do during lockdown, besides actually focusing on my uni deadlines, I decided to tackle something that had been bothering me for a while: My Spotify account. For months it was littered with cluttered playlists and albums that I had never listened to and meant that I skipped half the songs…

A Temporary Way of Living

When thinking about living though history I always imagined it to be more invigorating than the day-to-day I’m currently experiencing. I think ‘temporary,’ is the key word to remember because every day spent indoors is another day closer to being outside and not sitting glued to the news. Constantly staying at home sucks, don’t get…
