Edinburgh Festival Day!

Today was tourist day and that entails all things Edinburgh festival, National Museum and lovely friends. Here's a little sample of how the day unfolded!

Spindle knitted jumper on the Royal completed.

I am having a thing for incredibly cosy and oversized scarfs. So freaking CUDDLY!

ohh noooo, she's disappearing into the can tell we were having fun.


..Is it just me or does this exhibition section look like a face?

It's always been my dream to sit inside a tree. The new section of the museum tickles the giggling child in me. 

Alice? ...this sums up how excited we were even though we were being told to leave the 'kiddies' one understands our lack of maturity.

Family Days.

Today I spent the day with my family (hence the title) seeing as we have all been busy and some in other countries. A day spent in Edinburgh, going for lunch at the balmoral after, stupidly, driving in through the royal mile..there was even time for some scenic photos of the glorious sunshine from the car while it lasted.

My little brother has stolen my favourite, hand-me-down vintage jacket which is perfectly oversized. It angers me that he suits it although admittedly only when he is sitting down. Mash, little brother, has been my project ever since he asked my opinion on what sunglasses to wear when he was about 12 years old. He is almost 16 now and I am proud of my creation.

After a browse through Topshop/man I managed to gain an early birthday prenice (a prenice is what I call presents because that's how I used to say it when I was a wee toddler. It's the little things) in the form of a beautiful, real leathery smelling bag from the Topman limited collection.

I am in love with it and it's a Mary Poppins bag all the way..even better than my other capacious bag named 'Tardis' which is my favourite handbag of all time. It has served me a good 3 years <3

Other purchases included an incredibly cosy chashmere cardigan and vintage renewal denim shirt. Again, I'm in love. Wearing the cardigan now and it's dificult resisting the temptation to stroke my cheek on it every five minutes.. hmmmmm! So soft.

I hope you all had a wonderful day and i'll leave you with words of wisdom...

Found my Cafe

A little while ago I decided to go on a hunt for my favourite little cafe in the centre of Edinburgh (Spending Time In Edinburgh ) AAANNNND I've found it!!!


Artisan Roast is a little, unique cafe on Broughton Street near Omni Centre in town and seems to be the only place where I can have a double shot latte without wincing from the strength ! Which I'm taking to be a good sign. I have been popping in whenever I can for about 3 years now but now I love going out of my way and out of the buzzing streets to sit and spend time with my friends there with a b-e-a-uuutiful glass...yes glass (it's SO adorable) of coffee or chilli hot chocolate for those inevitable 'Scottish' days. 

If you're at the festival take a walk down. Directions are on their website ^^

Georgie Porgie!

Need I say much more? 


This is another wonderful friend of mine that I have missed dearly. If i'm honest, what you see is not weird for us either...drinks had begin and memories flooded back. 

My best friend is home and she couldn't be happier..not sure I feel the same way..well, maybe. 

I think I understand where I get the random from. 

That..thing..yeah, let's go with 'thing', began as a swan / pigeon and ended up a pigeon / t-rex. The characteristics she gave it to make it look like me was a short untidy scribble for hair and an iPod lead. It's nice to know she thinks of me as a pigeon / t-rex that is glued to her gadgets and doesn't look presentable. I'm surprisingly more offended by the later.

Train journey home as the shenanigans continue on. 

p.s I didn't know shenanigans was actually a word until my mac corrected my spellings. S'alls am sayin'.

Birthday in the sun.

Waiting for my friend I spotted a cute little old man sat in view.

Pigeons in love..or having a good old chinwag. Either way they get along. Isn't that sweet! 

I have acquired a love of baking which I am putting down to the amount of time spent with my mother and away from friends. Victoria sponge is his favourite so this was my present. Apparently it was very tasty. Chuffed.
