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.

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.

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. It boasts interiors oozing with opulence and views that are unmatched, especially in the penthouse which offers a 360-degree lookout over Edinburgh. Every detail has been carefully…
