#DuvetDining with TK Maxx


I love eating in bed. Like I love it way more than I actually should. Some days you just feel lazy and the thought of sitting at table seems like way too much effort. Even if you don't admit to enjoying it, you can't beat the feeling of sitting in bed with a bowl of food and Netflix playing in the background. 

When you go out dinner you alas have to sit at a table. How boring right? Imagine getting to eat an amazing unique seven course meal in a massive blanket fort? Sounds incredible right?

Glasses Love With Specsavers


I am a glasses wearer. You may not realise this since I actually very rarely wear them but trust me, I need them. 

Around 15 years old I found my eyes were starting to fail me. I couldn't see people's faces or read the chalk board at School. Though I did not feel dread about this but rather excitement. I wanted glasses so badly. 

Somehow in the last 10 years, my love for wearing specs started to wane. I just didn't feel my best in them. I looked at other glasses wearers with envy, how do they look so cool but yet I look like a massive dork? 

Seeing as I hadn't bought a new pair in almost 5 years, I needed a refresh and Specsavers* were on hand to help me out!

OOTD: Cape Love


I have a confession to make. It is going to be a big announcement so prepare yourself. Maybe sit down with a cup of tea for this news... 

I love capes. Like seriously. 

Though I adore them ever so much, I have actually never owned one before... until now.

Blood Drip Nails at Zara-Leoni's Vintage Salon


I think by now you are all probably aware that I am a lover of all things creepy. Why? I don't really know but I've always felt myself drawn to the more macabre things in life. From horror films to creepy stories to visiting 'haunted' locations, I love it all. 

So why not incorporate my love of all things horror with my nails? Well thanks to the lovely Zara Leoni, I did just that!

Milkshakes That Make You Feel Canny


Time to tell you a little story. Once upon a time there was girl called Emily who had firey/messy hair. One day Emily popped to her local shop on her lunch break. Looking for something tasty she came across cartons of milkshake. It spoke to her. Telling her it was a banana milkshake but it just wanted to talk about her instead. 

It was love at first sight. Never had Emily found a milkshake that just got her like that. Off she skipped back to her office with her new best friend. 

Yes I am talking about the time I fell in love with a milkshake, okay?!

This Saturday, The Auld Reekie Roller Girls will do battle with Finland’s Kallio Roller Derby at Edinburgh’s Meadowbank Stadium.

Fresh from a successful Big O tournament in the US last month and they will be fighting hard for a win on their home track.

You know what is better than one live game or roller derby? Two games for the price of one of course!

Flamingosaurus Rex Launch Night


If you follow me on social media, you will probably be aware of Flamingosaurus Rex by now. As well as being the shop of one of best friends, I also recently did a phootshoot for one of their designers. 

On Friday 13th May, Flamingosaurus Rex had its launch party and what a night it was!

OOTD: Batman Crop Top


How many times have you heard that unless you have a toned and flat stomach then you shouldn't even look at a crop top? All these rules on what you should wear for your 'body type' bore me ever so.

Fashion doesn't need rules. It should be your chance to express yourself and wear whatever you damn well please.

I will have no one tell me what I can't wear a crop. I will wear it with pride and that is exactly what I did with this Batman bad boy.
