OOTD: Ouija Board, Ouija Board


October finally here aka the best month of the whole year. The weather has taken a turn for the worst, the shops are full of pumpkin spice and of course, Halloween is just around the corner. 

After a year of stress, I am ready to actually make the most of my favourite month, so of course, I had to kick it off with a good old fashion OOTD post.

Frankly Fears: Found Footage Round-Up


Cast your mind back to 2014 when I decided to do a little horror movie series for October. I spent the whole month watching as many horror films as I can then doing terrible reviews on them. I always meant to do it again but life got in the way as usual, plus my reviewing skills really were terrible. 

However, with October fast approaching once again, I've decided it is time to bring it back but with a little twist. Okay, not so much a twist as it is clearly in the title but this time around I am going to focus primarily on found footage. 

Love it or hate it, it's a genre which has kinda taken over the world of horror.

OOTD: Autumn, Stevie Nicks & My Feelings On Blogging


It's finally September and you know what means - Autumn has officially landed. Okay, technically Autumn starts on the 22nd of September according to google but moving on...

It's been a while since I've posted on my blog and a new season seemed the perfect time to start getting into the blogging game again. Normally when I've been absent from blogging it's been due to some crappy health thing but for once this is due to good stuff aka starting my new job. 

Now that I feel a little more settled as a working gal again and my health problems are a little less difficult, I feel this is the right time for me to get back to my normal routine.

OOTD: Nike Bomber Jacket


Recently it feels like good luck is something that just passes me by but one department of my life has been pretty good - shopping!

So yeah, I am pretty darn skint so alas shopping hasn't been high up on my list but I seem to be on a roll when it comes to amazing charity shop finds. 

In the last few months I've come across gorgeous dresses,quirky tops and a pair of leather look trousers that amazingly actually fitted.

However, these finds pale in comparison to the bad boy that I am about to talk about.

Review - The Salvation of Leith


I've lived in Leith for over 6 years now and I am happy to call it home. What's been interesting about my time here has watching how much the area has changed, even in the fairly short time I've been living here. I've loved seeing new bars and restaurants pop up, so I was excited to get to try the menu at The Salvation of Leith*. 

I'd visited The Salvation a couple of times before ahead of my 'foodie blogger' visit, though it had only been for drinks, I was already quite a fan so I was intrigued to see what their food menu was like.

An Evening With A Couple Of Photos


If you check out my Instagram account you will see that I love a good selfie. It is very easy to shout about how vain my generation are due to our love of taking pictures of ourselves but is that a bad thing? We are told time and time again to "love ourselves" but as soon as you even show a hint of that you are ridiculed. 

The art of the selfie isn't even a new thing. Yes, sites like Instagram and most of us owning a smart phone with a camera means that it is easier than ever to take and share one but self portraits go as far back as 1839. 

Of course, this post isn't actually about my amazing (debatable) selfie skills but the wonderful work of A Couple Of Photos and my amazing portrait photoshoot with them.

OOTD: Tattoos, Blue Jeans & Moving Forward


In the words of the great Ronan Keating - "life is rollercoaster, just gotta ride it" and by god, my life has been quite an interesting ride recently.

Before I go into the heavy stuff, for old time's sake have let's kick this post off with a good old fashioned OOTD!
