If I Knew Then What I Know Now

I don’t write nearly as many “progress update” blog posts like I used to so that’s a good sign right? It haven’t stopped trying to ‘better’ myself, it just feels like a significantly leas daunting task now. On occasion if I’m having a hard day, I write out my rambles that are weighing on my…

At Home With Me: My Student Flat in Edinburgh

I know that all of us have been staying inside as much as possible recently. It can sometimes feel particularly lonely at times so I wanted to write a blog post that gets you out of your space and invites you into mine. My bedroom is where I’ve been spending excessive amounts of time and…

My Second Year of Studying Music Technology

When at university, traditional subjects of small talk involve what year you’re in and what you study. As a third year student of Music Technology, these topics usually encourage the question of, “I’ve never heard of that, what does it involve?” To which I then assure the opposite party that it is not as cool…

As Freely as I Love Others

“In 2019, I hope that I treat myself with respect and realise that I am worth more than I make myself out to be. I hope that I become unapologetic for who I am and stop saying sorry so much. But most of all I hope for 2019 to be the year of self-validation where…

There Will be no Miracles Here

“There will be no miracles here.” This is a great kind of quote for me. It’s not particularly thought-provoking or inspiring but it does match up with the realistic way I want to think about life. I don’t believe in miracles, fate or destiny but in the fact that things happen as a result of…

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…

A Somewhat Independent Woman

It’s been too long since I actually published any sort of life update blog post. That’s not to say that I haven’t started writing many at 3am when I haven’t been able to sleep but none of them have made it past the ramble stage and onto publishing. I still can’t believe that it’s been…
