WIWT: Birthday Girl in Red Lace

30 November 2015



Happy 24th birthday to me (last week)! To celebrate, I spent this past weekend with my best friends Emma and Gillian eating too much food and having surprises galore. I also rocked a pretty beautiful dress which I definitely had to photograph cause that's one tradition I like to keep up every birthday on my blog. It's nice to look back and see the changes over the years. Well, not that many changes because hey... I'm wearing the same hair band and necklace as last year! Old habits die hard, sparkly magpie that I am...

My Daily Makeup Routine

26 November 2015


Following up from my Morning Routine post recently, I thought I'd do a little detailed write-up of my daily make-up routine to fill in the gaps! This is the routine I use specifically mid-week when I'm off to the office. My weekend routine is a little different and either more glammed up or toned down - dependent on what I'm doing. Grab a cup of tea and get stuck in, guys!

My Morning Routine

17 November 2015



There isn't really a day that goes by that doesn't see me running frantically out of the door clutching my staff pass in one hand and my phone in the other. However, on the odd occasion I make the extra time in my morning routine, there are a few sacred moments I like to include. After all, there really is no better time than the morning to ensure your day starts off on the right foot. Here are a few glimpses into my morning routine:


Christmas Gift Guide: Festive Pampering

15 November 2015



Am I allowed to use the word 'Christmas' yet, or shall I whisper it in hushed tones...? Oh well! I thought I'd start off early, seeing as "it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..." around ol' Edinburgh town. Time to crack out the wish list, eye up M&S' festive food aisle and think about my decorating theme for this year. The easiest way I've found to get in the festive mood a little early - without looking a bit cray cray - is by slipping into fluffy pyjamas, burning a festive candle and giving my body a good wee pamper. So, on that note, here's a little Christmas gift guide I've created with festive pampering in mind. Perfect for treating your girl friends or mum - or yourself! - to this winter...
