My first week at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Hello again!
So if you read my last post, I did a few tips on how to dress for the fantastic Fringe Festival. So it was only right that I showed you all what I actually wore myself and how my week went.
Sadly I only got the one week off work to wander around and see shows.
For anyone who actually lives in Edinburgh, we all know that August is such a fun and slightly stressful time. Everywhere is busy, price in some pubs go up but you have to just take a step back and enjoy!

So here are a couple of my looks from the week:

 Blazer: Primark
Top: Armstrongs (vintage)
Skirt: River Island
Socks: Tesco
Jelly Shoes: Truffle Collection
Bag: Primark

 So for the my first day in town, I went for a very girly outfit. The sun was shining but still a little chilly, a little jacket was a must. I'm also loving my jelly shoes and I purchased some amazing cats socks so I had to show them off!
Sadly the cat ended up looking a little odd. Sometimes it looked like a ghost and other times a creepy owl.

Our first day ended up with us doing a lot of outdoor drinking on George Street but we did end up going to see Simon Munnery's Fylm School. Was very different from your usual "comedy" show but was a lot of fun. Plus Josie Long was hilarious!

I couldn't resit a little pose in front of the very sparkly Itison sign 

Now onto my look for the Wednesday:

 Blazer: Primark
Brooch: Peachy Keen
Shirt: George at ASDA
Disco Pants: Primark
Bag: Primark
Boots: New Look (which you can buy here:Buy now )

 On Wednesday I got to hang out with some very lovely blogging ladies (and my good friend Heather)
Now before I went to meet them, I saw that it was raining and came to a horrifying conclusion. I had no boots! Only little flats and jelly shoes. Not the best for a rainy day.
So I popped over to New Look and found these amazing boots:

 At first I was skeptical about the big old heel on them but they are so comfy!
Eventually I made it into town and had some lovely cocktails and we went to see a free variety type show at Opium. I'm going to be honest, it was very hit or miss but you can't beat a free show!

Rosa: Reviewer, Interviewer and Presenter at
Heather: Fabulous human being at

In the evening we ended up having a drink at the udderbelly when the two gorgeous ladies behind EastEnd Cabaret came over to our table to invite us to check our their show.

They were so much fun and gave us some half mustaches so we could get into the show for half price. I'm so glad we decided to go as it was hilarious! I honestly recommend you check them out.
Here are a couple of pictures from the day:

So onto Friday!

 Blazer: Primark (again...I like that blazer alot)
Brooch: Peachy Keen (I also love that brooch)
Dress: Primark (noticing a theme?)
Bag: Primark....
Boots: New Look

So Thursday was a more chilled out one. Went to the pub for a few drinks before heading to Jenners for the Bare Minerals event. It was really interesting and I learned a few new make up tips. Also I treated myself to a new primer. Can't wait to try it out.
Plus we got an amazing goodie bag:

So after all that, we popped over to the Hard Rock Cafe for a tasty cocktail or two.

There are so many amazing cocktails bars in Edinburgh but sometimes you can't go wrong with a classic like Hard Rock. They do a damn tasty Pina Colada!

So there you have it, a little inside to my Fringe Week. I really wish I had chance to do more but hopefully I can fit some shows in on my days off. 

Also I have to thank the lovely people at StressFreePrint & Zeal Buzz for the amazing #stressfreefringe kit!

I got a lovely tartan scarf and brolly, a local's guide to Edinburgh, official fringe canvas bag and a program for the festival. Sadly I didn't get much chance to use the scarf (it luckily didn't get too cold) but I did use the brolly plenty of times!

Well I hope you've enjoyed my post and liked my outfits. I am gutted I couldn't get chance to do much more but when I do, I'll make sure I show you all!

If you are visiting the festival and want to recommend me a show, please do so! I'm making it my mission to see more things.

Till the next time!
