Dr Neil’s Garden, Duddingston Village

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Edinburgh has been so warm and sunny recently and I have been transformed into a person filled with happiness and optimism. This wasn’t the case so much last week because I was stuck inside revising and feeling sorry for myself but now that I have finished…

My Birthday Milkshake Crawl

Milkshakes are fabulous, aren’t they? I loved them when I was little but as I got older and moved to Edinburgh, my love for them has grown into an unhealthy obsession. My friends seem somewhat amused by my fascination, as it seems to be recognised as a big part of my personality to them. So…

Coffee in Edinburgh: Lovecrumbs

My friends and I are starting to make a habit of finding cute caf├ęs in Edinburgh and going there for hot drinks and cake. It’s definitely a much better habit than biting my nails. Last week we went to Lovecrumbs which had been on our list for a long time.  Fairy lights around a window…
