Things & Stuff: May

Wednesday, 18 May 2016
One of my favourite types of blog posts to read are those round-ups of things people have found or liked online recently - like Charlotte's Saturday Share, or Juliet's Sunday Links.  I always find something of interest each time, whether it's a link to a funny story, a new blog to read, an outfit I want to wear, or somewhere I want to visit.  I thought I'd follow suit / blatantly copy them and start my own monthly series I'm calling "Things & Stuff".  So here's the first....

One thing I have become OBSESSED with recently is looking up Ikea Hacks on Pinterest.  If you haven't heard of this before, a 'hack' is basically just taking a piece of Ikea furniture and making it unique.  So that could be a simple change like painting a dresser or a big project like building your own storage bed.  I'm dying to go buy some furniture and do my own hacks!

Wedding Guest Wishlist

Friday, 6 May 2016
This year I'm going to 3 weddings in the space of 6 weeks.  3!  They are all quite different too, ranging from the traditional to a casual country affair, so I probably won't be able to wear the same dress to all 3 weddings.  For the last few weeks I've been all over ASOS on almost a daily basis trying to find outfit options, and I thought I'd share some of the beauties I've found so far.

A Big 'Ol Catch Up

Saturday, 30 April 2016


It has been a long time Mr Robot*, very well said.

Sorry I've been a bit MIA the last few months, life has just been a bit busy recently and I've not really had the time to put into blogging.  If you are subscribed to my Youtube channel you'll know I've still being uploading pretty regularly there, although I'm actually now just about to take a bit of a break there too as something has to give!  Blogging has always been a fun hobby for me but if life gets in the way then unfortunately it ends up going to the back of the queue - it's better that than me forcing myself to keep it updated, at which point it becomes no fun at all.

Anyway, things are still very busy at the moment but I was having one of those days where I fancied sitting down to write so I thought I'd put together a wee update post to fill you in on what's been happening over the last few months.

Rhubarb at Prestonfield - Edinburgh Restaurant Review

Tuesday, 8 March 2016

The other weekend, Blair and I treated ourselves to a fancy pants Sunday lunch at Rhubarb at Prestonfield.  I'd heard of the place before but for some reason had its location completely wrong in my head - I thought it was out near the airport but it's actually just a few minutes from Holyrood in the east end of the city.  We arrived by car and pulling into the driveway you immediately feel like you're out in the country, not just a short walk from the city centre.  There were even Highland cows in a field outside!

After a slight bit of confusion as to where the restaurant was (there's no signage outside, but you just go straight into the main house and it's through the back) and being slightly terrified by the rather large peacock blocking the entrance, we soon found ourselves inside the rather grand dining room.  With its rich, dark decor it felt like we were dining in a fancy stately home - we felt a tad underdressed!  We had a table right next to the window so we had a good view outside (I enjoyed watching squirrels running up and down the trees) and also a good seat for one of our favourite activities, people watching.
