Where to Brunch in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh

Brunch can be such a fun little event. It involves three of my favourite things; food, coffee and friends. There are so many great places in Edinburgh that would be fab for brunch but I thought I would share some Bruntsfield locations as the area is bursting with coffee shops and cafes. There’s nothing like…

Coffee in Edinburgh: Oqo

I am a huge fan of studying in coffee shops. I prefer it to trying to work in my bedroom because there is less to distract me, not to mention the fact that I can’t make decent coffee at home. I’ve made a list of all the coffees shops/cafes in Edinburgh I want to visit…

A Week of Hell to the Summer of Me

Hello, it’s been a while since I posted a chatty/update blog post of sorts. Whilst this one won’t be as particularly cheerful or optimistic like, ‘19 is My New Favourite Number,’ I’ve been having a rough time recently and needed to let a few things out. I wrote a blog post a while ago about…

A Guide to the Avengers in Edinburgh

Sunshine on Leith and Trainspotting are some famous examples of films that were shot in Edinburgh. The Scottish capital obviously plays a huge role in those movies, as most locations do, so when the huge Marvel franchise strayed away from New York and Wakanda to film Infinity War here, it was a pleasant surprise. It…

Kerbside 139: Edinburgh’s Street Food Destination

All of my favourite nights are spent in good company, eating good food and listening to good music. Kerbside 139, the new street food destination of Edinburgh, provides all that and more with a buzzing atmosphere and plenty of space to dance off all the calories that are waiting to be consumed. Based at the…

19 is My New Favourite Number

I’m definitely one of those people who loves to make a bit of a song and dance out of their birthday. It’s guaranteed that I will have multiple dinners, outfits and drinks to celebrate but as it’s an event that only occurs once a year, I think it’s justified. I definitely wanted to make my…

My Clinique Consultation

I’ve had some questionable experiences in the past with make-up, so I’ve never really gotten into it except for the occasional bit of concealer to cover up my spots. Therefore when I was invited to the Clinique counter at Jenners for a personal skincare consultation, I was a little hesitant at first but I thought…

The Best and Worst Year of my Life

Until recently, when I was reflecting back on 2018, I never understood people who said they had had the ‘best and worst year.’ As I get older I feel that time passes more quickly and that I can’t do everything I want to because being an adult has to come first. My 18th birthday was…

The Victoria and Albert Museum: Dundee

The Victoria and Albert Museum has been open in London since 1852 and now over 150 years later, the V&A has come to Scotland with the opening of a new building in Dundee. The modern architecture is a stark contrast to the traditional building in Kensington but is just another showcase of design, reflecting the…

Darnley’s Gin Christmas Festivities

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of attending the Darnley’s Gin Christmas Table event along with some of Edinburgh’s loveliest bloggers. This was my first event that I’ve been invited to as a blogger and I was so excited to work with a brand that’s based in Scotland. Darnley’s Gin is a family owned…
