Let's Talk About: Body Confidence


You may have already read my first 'Let's Talk About' post which was all about antidepressants, if you haven't then get on it now. So for this post, I am going to be talking about body confidence and my experience with it. 

Just like my first post in this series, everything I write is just my own personal opinions or talking about my own experiences. I want to use this series as an opportunity to start a conversation and to really get things off my chest sometimes. The more people talk about how they feel, the easier some situations can get.

Frankly Favourites: February

Hello again!

So you may have noticed but I seem to have caught the blogging buzz again. After a couple months out of the game, I am back with a bang. Along with my 'Let's Talk About' and 'Frankly Reviews' series, I've decided to share my monthly favourites. A list of everything from film, music, TV programs, blog posts. Everything I just love during the month.

With February being the month of love and pancakes, dive into what I've been loving this week.

Frankly Reviews: Bone Tomahawk


Once upon a time, I decided to dabble in doing film reviews. I went at it full force and made myself watch horror films for a full month in October 2014. As much as I ended up with sleepless nights and weird dreams, I really enjoyed it. 

Though I am far from a great film critic, I do love watching films and since I was sadly redundant for 3 months, it did give me the opportunity to watch as much as I can via Netflix, Amazon Prime and NowTv. I also found myself going to the cinema a lot more. 

So I've decided to start my film reviews again. My ‘Frankly Reviews’ will be a mix from old and news. Some will be spoiler free and some spoiler heavy but I will always pre warn you of that at the start. 

Without further ado, let’s kick this off with Bone Tomahawk!

Let's Talk About: Antidepressants (SSRIs)


So I have decided to start a new series of posts called 'Let's Talk About', quite generally a place for me to rant or talk about certain subjects matters. This could be anything from current affairs, food, health, films etc.

Today's post is going to be all about Antidepressants, to be more specific, SSRIs. Antidepressants, overall, are one of the most understood medications out there. Now I am no expert on this subject and I never will claim to but it's a matter that I've always wanted to speak up about. You may disagree with something I've said or completely thing something stated is wrong and this is totally fine. I want to use these posts to start a discussion from where we could all understand certain subjects more.

When it comes to this particular subject, I want to show people that there is nothing taboo about it. It's a daily part of many people's lives and no one should shy away from it.

Edinburgh Fashion Week Is Back


Edinburgh Fashion Week is back again for it's second year running. After the amazing success of it's first year last Spring, the award winning fashion week is back in the city. 

After having such a brilliant weekend last year, I personally can't wait to see what they have in store for us this time.

Galentine's Day: Part Two

Hello again, welcome to part two of my Galentine's Day posts!

After having an early Galentine's Day the week before with the Wardrobe Conversations girls (which you can read about in my previous post), it was finally Sunday the 14th. Now technically Galentine's Day falls on the Saturday before but I of course had to be different. So my afternoon was spent with two of my best friends and in the evening with my other half as actual 'Valentine's Day'. 

Being the typical bloggers we are, naturally we ended up taking a few 'outfit pictures'. Check out how we spent our Galentine's Day date.

Galentine's Day: Part One

 Happy belated Valentine's/Galentine's Day!

It was the time of the year again, when the shops are jam packed full of love hearts and slightly soppy cards. Love was in the air. Honestly, I am not a fan of Valentine's Day. It's not like I hate it but I generally can't really be that bothered with it all. I think a lot of us get ourselves in such a tizz over one day. If you are single, you may feel lonely and if you are in a relationship, you may feel under pressure.

So why not spend it with all the people you love? Could be your partner or it could be your lovely friends. 

I ended up having two Galentine's days out, so here is part one, featuring Wardrobe Conversations!

Burger Heaven at Bread Meats Bread

Hello there!

I think we all aware by now that burgers are a pretty big deal. It's almost impossible to go into your local city and not find loads of burger based restaurants. You could in a way say it's overkill but this girl loves a burger and all these burger joints make this girl a happy lady. 

After trying pretty much all of the time best burger places in Edinburgh, it was time for me to tackle the new player on the scene, Glasgow's favourite: Bread Meats Bread

Broken Dolls Shoot

Hello there!

When it comes to photoshoots I have came to realise that I am just ridiculously awkward about them. I spent most of the time feeling like I am doing everything wrong. Do you remember the episode of Friends when Chandler and Monica get photos taken for their wedding? Well I am Chandler, all the time. So these days I tend to avoid wanting to do one until quite recently. I got an amazing opportunity to take part in Gary Crozier's Broken Doll shoot and I couldn't pass that down at all.
