VDeep, Edinburgh: The Review

VDeep Craft Beer and Curry Bar Edinburgh

Last Thursday, I was invited to the media launch of VDeep; a craft beer and curry bar mash-up in Leith. Masterminded by TV personality, comedian and runner-up on Celebrity Masterchef, Hardeep Singh Kohli, and Head Chef Ruairidh Skinner (formerly of The Vintage in Leith), VDeep is a first for Scotland. Kohli came up with the idea when he noticed a gap in the market; so many people say they're going out for a curry then a beer (or vice versa), but never at the same time. However, he's made it clear that he wants VDeep to be primarily a craft beer destination which serves 21 contemporary Indian dishes to match. And, boy, do those Indian dishes impress..! With not a hint of mango chutney in sight..

Whistles SS15: Going Minimalist

12 February 2015

Call it age, but minimalism is appealing to me more and more. I've even been reading Into Mind's blog posts on building a minimal wardrobe almost religiously.. (see Minimalist Wardrobe FAQs: Common Pitfalls + How To Get Started) but I digress.. Don't get me wrong; I'm still drawn to a polka dot dress like a moth to a flame. But, these days, my idea of impeccable style is also coming from ogling Vivianna Does Makeup's latest style purchases (#Annafangirl). There's something about the clean-cut lines; the fresh neutrals and the ease of throwing it on in the morning. Maybe it's the fact I'm now a working professional and no longer a student..
