Evening Skincare Routine
Hey guys!

Following on from my earlier Morning Skincare Routine post (here), I thought I'd talk you through my evening skincare routine - from the products I use to take off the day's face, to the wee indulgent touches that get my body into sleepy mode.

Getting Feasty at Clerk's Bar, Edinburgh

Clerk's Bar Edinburgh
A few weeks ago, I was invited by the lovely Toni to the official press launch of Clerk's Bar in Edinburgh. The invite promised "an evening of great beer and great banter!" and, other than the fact I am not a beer drinker, I do indeed like a bit of banter! I had actually visited before for some dinner before heading elsewhere, so I was already familiar with the bar - and its amazing BBQ food! Suffice to say, there were drinks & meaty goodness galore.. prepare to get hungry! Or, if you're a vegetarian, look away now!

TGI Fridays Glasgow: #BurgerBlindDate

TGI Fridays Buchanan Street Glasgow
A couple of weeks ago, I was kindly invited by TGI Fridays to their Buchanan Street venue to sample their new burger menu under the heading of Burger Blind Date. Now, who am I to turn down offers of upcoming "romance of the incredibly meaty variety"?! With the promise of a wide selection of "sizzling suitors" to choose from, I was SOLD. Besides, me & my pals often refer to ourselves as #burgerlovinbabes ;) (blame Gillian for this amazing title).

A few weeks ago, I set off on a journey to Glasgow, at The White Studios by Glasgow Green. I nervously walked up to the studio to begin my day as a model! You might have a wee laugh here, as I'm probably the most opposite looking to a model ever (damn you, petite legs & Kardashian booty), so it was extra special to actually get to do something like this. I've always been interested in pushing myself outside my comfort zone and hitting lots of bucket list goals in the process, so this was an opportunity I couldn't miss..

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter: The Review

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter: The Review
Today I'm reviewing an old favourite of mine.. The Body Shop's Coconut Body Butter*!

Now, many years ago, as a teenager, I was a big fan of the sickly sweet Strawberry Body Butter. My sense of smell must have changed a lot as I can't deal with heavy fruity scents all over my limbs nowadays. I'd much rather go for a more classic scent when I want to pamper my body a bit.. But the scent of coconut had passed me by, ('cept in cooking - where I'm now fully obsessed with using Coconut Oil!) Anyway, food aside (!?), I'm pretty glad Elly got in touch to ask if I fancied giving this body butter a shot! Here's how I got on trying it out..

Hey guys!

Here's my post on the Edinburgh Science Festival this year, which ran from the 5th-20th April and featured a milliiion different events all themed around science (yeah, science!).

First off, I headed to Summerhall for Edinburgh Science Festival's special pre-festival blogger evening on the 25th March.. it was full of cocktail & food experiments, craft beer tastings from Edinburgh's very own Barney's Beer and, my personal favourite, liquid nitrogen-infused prosecco sorbet..!
