the big apple

A long one about my trip to New York in words and pictures.. mostly pictures!

five summer buys

Finito. I am done with second year, apologies for gloating to those still going through exams… I wish you the best of luck! Seeing as I’m done and homebound to London, I thought I would share some of my recent buys in aid of summer, because when I revise – I see a lot of delivery people!…

loafer love

I’m amidst a couple of deadlines, so please excuse the briefness of this post! But I had to share with you some recent finds from ASOS, obvs. I’m not really sure when ASOS disappoint in – well only when something I order doesn’t fit. But generally, they nail it on the design front. After perusing the new in section,…

seaside gingham

Guess who’s back, back again… (Sorry. I just go too excited that I’ve managed to post a whole 4 weeks in a row! Rounds of applause please!) There isn’t much that Edinburgh doesn’t have – except for decent shopping. For somewhere so small, it has a lot going for it. A zoo, a dormant volcano,…

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…

distressed denim

Bonjour! If you’re reading this, I’m probably having a hot chocolate, trying to bring my numb fingers back to life on the alps! Any who, it’s been a while since denim has had a feature on my blog. But don’t worry, the love is still there, and in full promotion of all things ASOS, obviously …

a night at the balmoral

So it’s been a few weeks since I last posted but not that much has happened. I will be able to post weekly at some point in my life, I promise! Anyway, the most exciting thing I’ve done recently was attend last week’s ball at The Balmoral! It was organised by the History of Art Society and Edinburgh…

new job, sassy trousers 

If you haven’t seen the social spam already, I recently started working at Aspinal of London for their new store which has opened right here in Edinburgh. The shop is in the heart of Edinburgh’s shopping area – George Street. When you’re sandwiched between Anthropologie and LK Bennett with a Starbucks on the corner and a Pret nearby,…

the autumn edit

The leaves are changing, the scarves are appearing and the pumpkin spice lattes are out – IT’S AUTMUN PEOPLE. Although it’s quite mild (depending on where you are), I’m finding it a little bit chilly up in Edi. The acclimatisation from London is a long process it seems.. I thought I would share a few of the…

budapest style diary

I’m back (to a very miserable London)! My trip to Budapest was really good – but it may take a while sift through all of the photos and write about it… Until then, I thought I’d share what I wore – priorities I know! And I guess you can be the judge of how much I over packed…

jungle in the sky

  If you haven’t already seen a bomb of photos on various social media platforms, I went to Sky Garden, 20 Fenchurch Street this week. And it was amazing… Not just because there was a heatwave and it was about 31°c, but also because we were 155m high with an incredible view of London – for free….

snaps from the city

It’s been quite a busy week – more than I had expected! From visiting chaotic tourist attractions, to random rainbow tunnels in King’s Cross, to queuing for a PABLO sweatshirt in Hoxton in the rain – it’s been an interesting few days. I’d firstly like to say thank you to everyone who read last week’s slightly…
