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…

Edinburgh During Christmas

Happy December! If you’re not in the festive spirit yet then what are you waiting for? Get those Christmas tunes blasting and turn on your fairy lights and may as well snack on a mince pie or two whilst you’re at it. Edinburgh at Christmas is wonderful as the whole city transforms into a Winter…

My Top 5 Autumn/Winter Wardrobe Picks

This is my favourite time of year. Thanks to the colours, the crisp air and the utter joy that I get from scuffling around in leaves, I’m really happy. It also marks the start of the countdown to Christmas as the summer wardrobe is packed away and the jumpers, fluffy socks and coats all come…

Moving Past Bad Essays

I’ve used these Progress Updates as outlets when my mental health has been overwhelming and I needed a place to release some of my anxieties. I never expected many people to read them and that was generally always the case, up until last month. All of a sudden the number of people that read my…

The Edinburgh Grand

Opened in June 2018 in a former bank on St Andrew’s Square, the Edinburgh Grand is one of the Scottish capital’s most luxurious hotels consisting of 50 apartments.

My Paris Travel Diary

“Paris is not a city, it is a world.” Have truer words ever been spoken? Paris has this manner about it that makes it distinct from other capital cities. It is just as busy, with just as many rude and arrogant citizens and is teaming with tourists but still captures my heart like no other…

My First Year of Music Technology

There are a grand total of five people in my year studying Music Technology BMus at the University of Edinburgh. Evidently, it’s a rather niche course that technically doesn’t exist anymore for it has been ‘rebranded,’ as it were, to become Acoustics and Music Technology BSc and no longer requires any music qualification to apply….

Indecisive, yet Stubborn

I hate the saying, “If it’s meant to be, it will be.” When Dan and I broke up I heard that phrase a lot. I understand they’re supposed to be words of comfort and I appreciate that people were trying to help me feel better but I get angry when I hear them. I’m not…

My Favourite Eats in Paris

I love to eat, I love Paris and I love to eat in Paris. I keep looking at pictures I took of numerous crΓͺpes I had in June so thought I would write a blog post about some of my favourite things I ate whilst on holiday. I am fully aware that are many more…

A Lookback on my First Year at University

Freshers’ Week is in full swing once again marking the one year anniversary since I moved to Edinburgh to start my Bachelor’s degree in Music Technology. I’ve written a couple of posts based on my experience to hopefully give you some tips when you’re at university but what I haven’t done is written a reflection…
