Jamie's Scottish Evening

Thursday, 30 April 2015

Earlier this week I attended an event at the Edinburgh Thistle Hotel called Jamie's Scottish Evening (Jamie as in King James, not Jamie Oliver, like I first thought - ha!).  The night involved a 4 course meal (with Scottish favourites like Leek & Tattie soup, and Cranachan for pudding), live music (including a traditional piper), Scottish dancers, and even an address to a haggis (complete with wee haggis, neeps and tattie canap├ęs).

My Statement Necklace Collection

Monday, 27 April 2015
so jazzy

Over the years I've amassed quite the collection of statement jewellery, and I love nothing more than dressing up an outfit with a jazzy necklace.  Whilst tidying up my wardrobe recently (which is where my necklaces are stored, on an old coat hanger, fancy) I had the idea of writing this blog post as I thought it would be fun to give you a little peek into my collection.  Like I said, it's a collection I've gathered over the course of a couple of years, so I don't think any of these are still in the shops (hence no links), so apologies if you wanted to buy any of them!

Holiday Diary | Disneyland Paris

Wednesday, 22 April 2015

I'm FINALLY getting round to writing about my weekend at Disneyland Paris which was a kind of pre-hen / birthday getaway with my mum, sister, aunt and cousin.  We had such a lovely time, it's actually the first time we've all been away on holiday together and it's also the first time in years that I've been away with my mum and sister, so it was nice to spend proper time together.  I filmed the whole weekend so there's a vlog up on my Youtube channel that you can watch if you so wish.  As I was filming though I didn't actually take that many photos, so I've nicked a couple of these from my sister and cousin (hope they don't mind!).  

Anyway, as is customary, on with the (f-ing huge) holiday diary!!

Recent Makeup Buys: The Good, The Bad, and The Meh

Sunday, 12 April 2015

I've found that over the last few months I've consciously curbed my beauty spending - mainly because I'm trying to be really good with savings (what with our wedding being 5 months away….5!!).  It's meant that I've pretty much been using the same products every day - a bit like the pre-blogging days!  As a result, when I've bought new things it's mainly been out of necessity, like to replace things that have run out.  I say "mainly" as sometimes the lure of Boots gets too much and I have bought a couple of things that I didn't necessarily need.  Damn those Three for Two deals!

I've had mixed successes with makeup that I've bought in the last few months though, so I thought it was worth sharing.
