I’ve spoken previously about my love for all things second hand and thrifty, the photos below are the reason why. In one visit I snapped up five wonderfully kitsch necklaces and a funky…

Wedding | What Planning a Wedding has Taught Me…

With only 111 days to go until my wedding (although who’s counting?… Me!) the planning is well and truly in full swing. I’ve started to realise that the closer I get to July 14th the more I’m slowly changing from the ‘laid-back everything will turn out fine’ bride to the “OMG, IS…

Beauty | Rimmel’s Red Nose Red for Comic Relief

For me the highlight of Comic Relief night was definitely the Vicar of Dibley reunion as I adore Dawn French, Emma Watson and Ruth Jones – a combination of all three was always going to be comedy gold! For me, on the whole, the night didn’t have as many laugh-out-loud sketches like…

Lifestyle | I ♥ Bookshops

Three things I love about Edinburgh; the charity shops, the museums and the bookshops! Is it strange to get so excited by a shop full of over priced books? Well it’s my idea of heaven! I love the smell of new books, the cover art, the illustrations, the ideas and…

Beauty | Patisserie de Bain Hand Cream

So I was browsing around Superdrug this morning before work, not looking for anything in particular when I stumbled across this range of very pretty confection inspired Patisserie de Bain hand creams from Rose & Co. Rose & Co. was created by mother and daughter team, Patricia and Caroline Rose.…

Beauty | bareMinerals – Lash Domination & Ready Eyeshadow

As I said before in last month’s post (bareMinerals Part 1 – Mineral Veil Finishing Powder & Blush) I’m a bit of a newbie to the bareMinerals range. I decided to find what makes the bareMinerals collection so unique from other beauty brands on the market. Every bareMinerals product contains a specialised blend…

Beauty | Illamasqua Lipstick in Sangers

Beauty | Jessica Custom Nail Colour in Action!

Last weekend I went to TK Maxx in search of the Karl Lagerfeld or Diane Von Fustenburg Comic Relief t-shirts I had seen modeled by the lovely Lily Allen. TK Maxx isn’t usually a shop I go into as it’s mismatched clothes rails give me a headache and I can…

Fitness | Week 3 – Charlotte Crosby’s 3 Minute Belly Blitz

So I’ve made it to week three of Charlotte Crosby’s Belly Blitz workout, have you checked out my posts from week 1 and week 2 yet? After a bit of a slump in week 2 I’m happy to announce I have got my mojo back! It’s actually beginning (dare I say it) to…

Fashion | Wonderland at Debenhams

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. Ana contrary-wise, what it is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” – Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Debenhams…

Beauty | The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Butter

So it’s supposed to be Spring, but I guess nobody told the weather. It’s literally snowing as I write this, what I wouldn’t give for an hour of natural sunlight. That’s Scotland for you. Today I’ll be looking at The Body Shop’s Almond Hand and Nail Butter (100ml/£12), one of…

Beauty | Phil Smith Be Gorgeous Shampoo & Conditioner

Some of my followers on Twitter & Instagram might already know that last weekend I spent 3 hours in Broughton Place Hair & Beauty Salon in Edinburgh for a complete style over haul. I was greeted with a glass wine which is always a guaranteed way to get in my good books, and pampered…

Beauty | Birchbox – March Habitat Collaboration

So I was a little intrigued by this month’s box as I knew Birchbox was collaborating with homeware store Habitat. I was unsure how this partnership would be reflected in the goodies inside. Now I have received my box… well, I’m still a bit confused! The theme is ‘Do Try This at Home’, the literature…
