• Tomatin Five Virtues Launch

    On Thursday night (the 9th March) I was invited to the launch of Tomatin's Five Virtues, a collection created in collaboration with artist Eva Ullrich. As someone who has never been a huge fan of whisky, I have to admit I was initially quite skeptical about attending the launch. I didn't doubt that Frank, the ...

  • Protaras Inspiration

    As I mentioned in my previous post, we recently attended my cousin's wedding in Protaras, Cyprus. We were there for a week and the wedding was the day after we arrived, so we did have a lot of time to enjoy the area we were staying in. I visited Cyprus as a toddler but can remember ...

  • 6 Destination Wedding Tips for Guests

    At the start of this month, Chris and I were fortunate enough to attend the wedding of my gorgeous big cousin and her partner (now husband). The wedding was in Cyprus (Protaras, to be exact) and the actual ceremony was on the beach. I had never been to a wedding abroad before and wasn't entirely ...

  • Redecorating: Living Room Inspiration

    Chris and I were very lucky to receive money from kind friends and family as part of our wedding gifts. We're planning to save this and spend it on redecorating our flat, which is looking a little bit tired and could definitely do with a lick of paint and some new furniture! I thought it might ...

  • My Hen Weekend

    Last Friday (the 22nd of May) me and five of my bravest (!) friends hopped on a train to Edinburgh for my hen weekend. And it was absolutely fantastic! I went with my friends Cheryl (who has been mentioned on this blog before), Lynsey (who you may know from Allsorts and Anecdotes), Anna, Samantha and ...

  • Beauty Confidential with House of Fraser

    I was lucky enough to be invited to House of Fraser's Beauty Confidential event in Glasgow last week, and I had an absolutely fantastic time. It's been a wee while since I've been to an event as I took a (fairly unintentional) break from blogging a few years ago and as a result I was a ...

  • Poorly Dog and a Treat from the Petshop.co.uk

    My oldest dog Ollie hasn't been very well lately. He jumped off my bed (despite the helpful stool there to stop him from jumping!) and has ruptured one of the ligaments in his knee. He's been told he needs strict rest, which isn't easy for him! He's also had an infected tooth removed and is ...

  • My 40 Day Healthy Living Challenge UPDATE

    Bad blogger alert! It has been OVER FOUR WEEKS since I started my 40 Day Healthy Living Challenge and I haven't posted one update on the blog despite promising to. I have posted a selection of recipes, which you can view by clicking the 'Lifestyle' category in the main menu (if I post a few ...

  • DIY Tile Photo Coasters

    Pinterest is my new best friend. With my 40 Day Healthy Living Challenge well under way and the wedding looming, I've been pinning recipes and wedding favours/table plans/decorations like a woman possessed. I came across similar tutorials for these DIY Tile Photo Coasters on my Pinterest travels, and decided to give my own version a ...

  • My 40 Day Healthy Living Challenge

    Tomorrow is going to be a big day for me! Okay, perhaps that's a little dramatic but I have decided to make some changes in my life and, starting tomorrow, I'm going to do a 40 day healthy living challenge. The plan is to document this challenge on my blog, my Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest ...
