Neil Barton Hairdressing, Edinburgh
Haha, I promise I'm not grumpy! Looking normal whilst taking photos in public is not my forté..
As part of the run-up to the British Hairdressing Awards, I was invited by AJC PR to review Neil Barton Hairdressing in Edinburgh and get a cut & blow-dry* from the finalist for Scottish Hairdresser of the Year Neil himself. It's not every day you get your hair seen to by a celebrity hairdresser.. so who was I to say no? Here's my review of the experience..

Leighton Denny Colour & Go Nail Paint Duos: The Review

27 August 2014

Hi guys!

I was kindly invited* to try out a few of the new Leighton Denny Expert Nails Colour & Go Nail Paint Duo manicure pens. I picked out the shades Monochrome (ft. Maneater & Surf); Embellish Rose (ft. Embellish Me & Diamond Rose); and Fashionista (ft. She's in Fashion & Cascade). Having met and interviewed Leighton before when I worked in marketing for a beauty company, it was interesting to try out some new products from his Expert Nails collection. So, here's my wee review of the pens..

Godiva Boutique, Edinburgh: Blogger Party

Godiva Boutique Edinburgh
Hi all!

The other week I was invited to Godiva Boutique's first ever blogger party, where we were promised to check out the finest independent brands on offer at the boutique, some creative crafty projects to get our teeth into, local food retailers (Hula Juice Bar, Lovecrumbs and Mary's Milk Bar) offering up the nibbles, demonstrations from Runaway Fox and little competitions and goodies throughout.

So.. how could I possibly say no?!

Here's what I got up to with my fellow blogging chums on the evening..

A Joules Wishlist

Hi, my lovelies!

Today I've been asked to write a post* for Joules, giving you all a sneak peek of my favourite pieces from their women's range. Their range of styles & colours really caught my eye so I thought you guys would like to see them too, as it's not a store I've highlighted before! So kitsch & quirky and perfect for snuggling up in on a crisp autumn afternoon, as well as on a late summer evening in the beer garden..

Behind The Work Space: Desk Inspiration

21 August 2014

Hey you loveeeely lot.

I decided, seeing as I spend the majority of my time pinning to my Work Hard (Play Hard) pin board on Pinterest, I maaaay as well turn it into a well-deserved blog post. So, here you have it. A whole blog post dedicated to the biggest #1 love of my life: desk inspiration. I'm actually going to split into two posts, with the second focusing on a stationary wish list of dreams.

I couldn't be more excited right now. I'm practically hyperventilating, so let's get crackin' and hop right in with my favourite desk inspiration photos..
