Frankly Vlogs - A Day Of Drinking In Edinburgh


Every now and again, you need a day of letting your hair down. With work, hospital trips and generally attempting to keep a social life together, I found I just wasn't having enough time for myself. 

I was feeling stressed and a little down in the dumps, so, when Sam suggested we have a little Saturday of day drinking, I was pretty darn keen. It is not often we get a weekend together these days either. 

Of course like any normal 25 year old blogger, I had to document my day. It didn't happen if you don't document it right?

OOTD: Fire Hair and Leopard Print


I've said it once and I will say it again - having my hair done always cheers me up. I've been in a bit of a slump the last few months. Scratch that, the last year has been one big slump. Of course it hasn't all been so bad but alas the negative aspects have played a big part of my year.

After a stressful and ill couple of weeks, it was time to get that mop on my head sorted. Gain some control in my life again via my delightfully messy hair.

A Trip To Gullane & The Golf Inn


It’s not often that I ever get away from central Edinburgh. I don’t drive, my passport has expired and what can I say, I just love the city life.

However, sometimes getting away for some peace and quiet is a good thing especially when it is not something you get to do often.

So, when I was offered the opportunity to visit The Golf Inn* to review their restaurant and stay over night, I jumped at the chance. A little night away is just wanted I needed!

OOTD: Everyday Is Halloween with Dr. Martens


Halloween is over for one more year and the Christmas chat is already starting. However, I refuse to move on from my favourite time of the year. 

Letting your spooky self out doesn't need to be restricted to one month a year. Let's be creepy all year round.

What better way to keep the Halloween spirit alive but with a skeleton themed outfit!

Review: Boozy Snoozy at The Bonham


Sometimes you just need a good lazy lunch. I don’t mean lazy as in a cheap old sandwich but lazy in the way of just kicking back, relaxing and letting life just pass you by.

Now of course you could do that at home but how much better would that lazy lunch be if you added in a 3 course meal (that you don’t have to make yourself) and two bottles of wine. Chuck in 3 of your best friends and you are sorted.

So where can you enjoy this perfect lunch? The Bonham, of course.

OOTD: Witch, Please


My favourite time of the year has arrived again and guess what? I didn't get to enjoy it. Why you ask? Well, if you follow me on the world of social media you will know a little about my recent hospital trip. 

I alas ended up getting not one but two surgeries during the space of one week. Luckily both of them were not serious but it still wiped me out big time. I've spent the last two weeks stuck in bed, doping up on painkillers and binging on Netflix. 

You also may realise that the exact same thing happened to me last year. My luck in October is grim but that won't stop me from attempting to get into the spirit and that is exactly what I did today.

Date Night at Checkpoint


Friday night tends to be ‘date night’ for many couples. It is not something I have really bought into much in the past for some reason but I decided to give it a go.

Edinburgh in general is full of great date spots and Checkpoint is one of them, so I was excited to be invited along to try out their dinner menu.
