Autumn’s Top Ten

Posted on

Bonfire night is upon us, we’re getting the odd one of those cold and crisp days (a few more of the damp, soggy ones) but Autumn is in FULL swing. Blink and you’ll miss it. Time for a little Autumnal reflection. Top ten things I love and hate about Autumn: 1.Comfort food is a necessity Read the Rest »


Hello Halloween!

Posted on

Can it really be Halloween already?!?! The last few months seem to have passed in the blink of bloodshot eye. And I’m sure the Halloween hype gets more and more extreme every year. When I was little, we carved pumpkins with smiley faces and, if we were really lucky, might have been able to coerce a mint imperial out of a Read the Rest »


Ayrshire camels, trampolines and Brad Pitt

Posted on

Well on Saturday it felt like we had a final fling with Summer – it was GLORIOUS. And what better way to spend it than cavorting with farm animals and a few unexpected wild beasts at Heads of Ayr Farm Park, complete with trampolines, diggers, forts, soft play, quad bikes, boats … and endless other Read the Rest »


Staying In

Posted on

While my other half thought that the weekend, with temperatures around 5 degrees, was an appropriate time to go ‘wild’ camping and fishing (this to me is ‘wild’ in all the wrong ways), I would argue that it’s time to batten down the hatches. I mean, I know there’s something slightly depressing about the fact Read the Rest »


Brew it like Beckham

Posted on

Well the Big Beckhams have been in Bonnie Scotland and I didn’t even get an invite. What’s all that about? Sure, I might have been tempted to add a dash of diet coke to his new exclusive whisky, but I’d have been the Life. And. SOUL of that bash. Did Tana Ramsay tear up the Read the Rest »


A Cake Marathon

Posted on

Here in Scotland we have been BASKING in a long weekend. Does anyone agree that every Monday should be a holiday? I’m sure that must be biblical or something. Ours was filled with Birthday parties and DIY in equal measure. Thus, it was productive, fun and exhausting in equal measure. Oh to get our blinking house Read the Rest »


The One About Feminism and The Third Boob

Posted on

Did you read today about the girl who got a third boob implanted as a means to get famous? WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE WORLD?! The most infuriating this about these kinds of stories is that we do talk about them, so we do make them famous. I’m not too sure what she was expecting, but I’ve just got Read the Rest »


Glasgow’s Great Graduates

Posted on

Last week, I had the pleasure of going along to the Graduate Fashion Show for the MDes in Fashion and Textiles at the Glasgow School of Art . I was really impressed by the students’ work – some amazing prints and gorgeous garments that wouldn’t have looked out of place at London Fashion Week. What an unbelievable sense Read the Rest »


Belles, Bonfires and Organic Beauty Week

Posted on

This September, I have a wedding to attend every weekend. That is a LOT of dresses, a lot of dancing, a lot of free wine, a few hairy late nights with a FOMO-ridden toddler and a lot of fun. On Saturday, The Big Day was celebrated in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. It was picture perfect Read the Rest »


Sew on and Sew Forth

Posted on

This weekend, all my time has been spent sewing curtains and seeing friends in the sunshine. I don’t know if I’m getting old, but it was lovely! It’s been a while since I’ve had my trusty old Singer out, and I’d never attempted curtains before, but I just battered on into it and soon found Read the Rest »
