six-pound burgers

Edinburgh is full of food. Places are popping up all the time, and my bank account cannot afford to try them all! Last week, at the West End of Edinburgh, we stumbled across Foundry 39, who serve burgers, pizza, drinks and brunch! We rocked up at around 4.30pm so we just made it in time…

spring steps

Hello! It’s finally beginning to feel a bit more like March with temperatures above 10 degrees – well in Scotland at least! So, to get into the spirit of spring I whipped out my dusky pink duster coat (similar) and found some pastel doors – not to mention the baby blue backpack (similar). It’s still a…

a day at the museum

  Last week’s adventures took us on a short trip to the National Museum of Scotland, one of the few things you can do when it’s rainy outside… I have to say, it is one of the most random museums I’ve ever been to. Although they have organised exhibitions such as the natural world, art…

jumping around

Since finishing my exams, I have had 10 days of nothing-ness. Which has been amazing for seeing more of Edinburgh/Scotland and making the most of the spring weather now that it has actually arrived, yaaaaaay!  So a little shopping trip meant it was finally time to whip out my new ASOS Petite Denim Wide Leg Jumpsuit, with…

the edinburgh menu

My first year is nearly over, so I wanted to try and sum it up in a couple of blog posts, and what way better than to start with fooooood? I know many of you won’t visit Edinburgh often/ever, but let me try to tempt you with my culinary tour of this city. I can honestly say I’ve never…

exploring highlands

Long time no type! I’ve been busy revising/procrastinating with exams, but now I’m freeeeeeee. And as a birthday present, my friends Bryn and Hannah booked a trip to the see the Scottish Highlands as post-exam treat. Since moving North, I haven’t travelled further than Edinburgh so it was great to see quintessential Scotland i.e. Loch…

back to basics

  Brace yourself, this blog post consists of me NOT wearing trainers or jeans! I promise I have other clothes… So other than revising for exams, I took a break a couple of evenings ago to meet friends for dinner seeing as it was sunny and bright for once. I took a short wander from Princes Street…

three shades of blue

Happy May! I can’t believe we’re already 4 months in to 2016. It’s meant to be spring, but the snow outside my window lately doesn’t seem to think so… why Scotland, why?! Anyways, it’s time for round two of blue! I’m not the biggest fan of ‘all black everything’, and much prefer navy – probably because…

saturday strolling

  Recently, the weather in Edinburgh has been amazing. Blue skies, temperatures above 10ºC, no wind and lots of SUN. Hello, vitamin D overload. The feeling of spring inspired a walk up to Calton Hill – one of the view points of Edinburgh. Despite living here for a few months now, I’ve never seen the city so…

dublin diary

Hello again! I’m back 🙂 Sorry it’s been a while, but I just went on a trip to Dublin.. queue the pretty pictures. A few details, we left early Saturday morning and returned Wednesday night, which is more than enough time to explore Ireland’s capital. Flights from EDI to DUB can be as little as…

pretty skies

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m often caught looking down at my phone scrolling through something. The odd time I do look up in Edinburgh, I’m generally met by rain. BUT… if I’m lucky, I see amazing skies. And never more so than when I’m in my room – yep student accomodation with…
