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…

Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail: A Nationwide Hunt Across Scotland

Scotland recently had its first nationwide art trail going by the name, ‘Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail,’ counting decorated statues that are based off the classic cartoon character. They say to write about your passions in life and over the past couple of months, I have become very passionate about Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail….

Coffee in Edinburgh: Strumpets

I believe that Strumpets is a true hidden gem in Edinburgh serving delicious coffee. Tucked away on William Street in the West End, the light blue facade brings a pop of colour to the Georgian New Town. With a large range of teas, coffees and hot chocolates as well as plenty of food options, it’s…

Coffee in Edinburgh: Burr & Co

Burr and Co has established itself in my heart and has earned a place in my, “Top Five Places for Coffee in Edinburgh,” obviously a very coveted place to be. Located on George Street in central Edinburgh it’s a great place to stop for lunch or coffee when having a peruse of the shops or…

A Lookback on my Second Year at University

I wrote a post like this after I finished my first year at university, reflecting on everything that I had learned from a personal perspective rather than an educational one. I had a wee read of it the other day now that I’m finished my second year and I thought it would be nice for…

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 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…

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…
